Chaim Herzog 1918-1997

 


 

Chaim Herzog was born in Belfast, today's Northern Ireland.

 

From 1983 to 1993, he served two terms as Israel's sixth president.

During this time, Israel's prime ministers were as follows

Yitzhak Shamir
1983 1984
 
Shimon Peres
1984 1986

Yitzhak Shamir
1986 1992
(with Shimon Peres 1986 to 1990)

Yitzhak Rabin
1992 1995

 

Chaim Herzog was a Zionist, meaning he was a supporter of Zionism, which is according to dictionary,

a movement among modern Jews having for its object the assured settlement of their race upon a national basis in Palestine; after 1948, concerned chiefly with the development of the State of Israel.


By the way, Zion is the name of one of the hills located south of today's city of Jerusalem. Back in the 10th century BC, ancient King David decided this hill to be the right spot for his capital, took it from the Jebusites, built the City of David, and moved his office desks from Hebron to Zion, which became the name of the city of Jerusalem.

 

On May 14, 1948, the modern state of Israel issued its declaration of independence.

 

On their quest to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination, the U.N. General Assembly held its 30th session on November 10, 1975, and adopted the resolution number 3379, in which it was determined,

that zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination.

 

Big stir. Jordan, Lebanon, and the Arab nations were in agreement, the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) and the USSR also voted for it, the German Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) and the US voted against it.

Later the same day, November 10, 1975, Chaim Herzog, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations at the time, gave his reaction Speech on the Anti-Zionist Resolution. After his finishing words,

"this is no more than a piece of paper, and we shall treat it as such."

and still on the podium, Herzog tore up the paper on which the draft resolution was written.

 

It took a while, but at their 74th plenary meeting on December 16, 1991, the United Nations General Assembly came up with the resolution 46 86, in which it was decided,

to revoke the determination contained in its resolution 3379 of November 10, 1975.
