Menachem Begin - Conspicuously Missing

In the infamous speech made by General James Jones, President Barack Obama's National Security Advisor, at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy at the Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC on April 21, - although the White House transcript avoids the rather unseemly "Jewish" joke he told, - he mentionedf peacemakers.

It is time for all leaders in the region—Israeli, Palestinian, and Arab—to support efforts for peace. It is time for today’s leader to demonstrate the courage and leadership of Anwar Sadat, King Hussein, and Yitzhak Rabin.

Menachem Begin is too conspicuously missing.
