Behold the man of perdition, the guy that after to serve in the army headquarters during the Yom Kippur War lost his faith and he became an atheist.
The same man that secretly, without informing Shimon Peres, his superior, began the Oslo Process, which led to the establishment of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Gaza. Later, under PM Yitzhak Rabin, he formulated with Mahmoud Abbas, the "Beilin/Abu Mazen understandings" as a basis for the final settlement between Israel and a Palestinian state.
After the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, Beilin served in the leftish governments of Shimon Peres and Ehud Barak; but urgently needing to be at the left of the left he joined Meretz, party that he headed from 2004–2008.
In 2003, after a lengthy process with PA minister Abed Rabbo, he signed the Geneva Accords, creating the structure of a permanent agreement between Israel and an independent Palestinian state. Meanwhile, he campaigned to transfer the ownership of the Shebah Farms to Lebanon and to pardon terrorist Marwan Barghouti.
He was the only Israeli that issued a condolence message on the death of Yasser Arafat.
In 2016, Beilin had the effrontery to atrociously criticize the legacy of Benjamin Ben-Eliezer shortly after his death, calling him "an aggressive, destructive politician."
With such a "brilliant" curriculum, no one will be surprised to learn that France honored him with the Legion of Honor, no doubt that for his great contribution to the efforts of nations to obliterate the Jewish state.
This is briefly the story of the man of perdition, the guy that has most damaged Israel in its 70 years of life, the amazing story of the wrong man who destroyed everything he touched.
The deactivation of such a disastrous legacy will need the work of several generations of Israelis, which probably will not completely neutralize it. Meanwhile, his hidden time bombs will continue to explode.
Now it's Meretz's turn.
