Dear Mr. Farjoun:
Please express my sincerest sympathy to Professor Shahak's family.
Professor Shahak was a man of principle and a man of true humanity. I met him at a university seminar we shared in Scotland in 1970. I shall never forget the words he told me about he came to see the brutality of the Israeli occupation and how he saw with his own eyes how the Palestinians were treated. He said "That is how the Nazis treated us in Belsen".
Such men are rare in our age and his loss is immeasurable, not only to Israelis but to all human kind.
May he rest in peace.
Yours sincerely
Ismail Zayid, MD.
