RFK in Palestine

Original post made by Sharon on Jun 5, 2008

Robert F. Kennedy, the 40th anniversary of whose assasination we will mark soon, was once a 22 year old reporter for the Boston Post. In 1948 he visited Palestine.
Here are his reports of the situation as he saw them.
The most striking thing about RFK's accounts is how different in tone and detail they are from the remade history to which we have been accustomed.
The Jewish fanaticism; the Arab hatred and suspicion; British duplicity. All are in these old, nearly forgotten dispatches which should speak for themselves. Web Link
