The Minister and the Settler, Part II

Yesterday we posted the contents of two letters written by Daniela Weiss, a leader of the settlers, telling Ariel Sharon, then Minister of Agriculture, how very wrong he was to remain in the cabinet which was about to dismantle the settlement of Elon Moreh (November 1979).

This morning one of my colleagues, who was involved in the publication about the governments' response to the court decision against Elon Moreh, told me he recently contacted Ms. Weiss. He asked her if Sharon ever responded to either or both of her letters. (Politicians usually respond to letters from constituents.) She said he never did.

Perhaps not surprising, but an interesting historical tidbit worth being recorded.
