Shamir's daughter: Dad belonged to different generation of leaders

Gilada Diamant, Yitzhak Shamir's daughter, said that her father "belonged to a completely different generation of leaders, people with values and beliefs. I hope that we have more people like him in the future. His political doing has undoubtedly left its mark on the State of Israel."


"Dad was an amazing man, a family man in the fullest sense of the word, a man who dedicated himself to the State of Israel but never forgot his family, not even for a moment. He was a special man," she added. Shamir, who served as Israel's seventh prime minister, died on Saturday at the age of 96. (Tomer Velmer)
