Talk:Yitzhak Shamir

I've moved the following to Talk:

  • It is unacceptable that nations made up of people who have only just come down from the trees should take themselves for world leaders . . . How can such primitive beings have an opinion of their own?
    • in reference to the black African nations who voted in support of the 1975 U.N. resolution, which denounced Zionism as a form of racism, in Yediot Ahronot, November 14, 1975.

Could someone please provide a source for this claim? Jayjg 22:46, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

A source was already named: Yediot Ahronot (1975-11-14). If you dispute the correctness of this source, please give us the evidence and it will then be made a Misattributed quote rather than a Sourced one. As it stands, however, a Sourced quote should not be deleted simply because an editor doubts its credibility. Such a unilateral action would be as much discouraged here as it would be on Wikipedia. The quote will therefore be restored as Sourced pending any consensus on this discussion page when we are given more information. If the quote turns out to be false or misstated, the evidence for this will be summarily included when the quote becomes Misattributed. If the evidence is inconclusive, it would then become a Disputed quote along with a summary of the evidence for and against.- InvisibleSun 04:18, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes, but has anyone ever actually seen it in that newspaper? It's quite certain that Liftarn, who doesn't read Hebrew, did not use it as a source. Jayjg 05:15, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
By the way, all the google hits I'm getting are from blog posts. You'd think such an incendiary quote would have found its way onto a real website by now, wouldn't you? Jayjg 05:25, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
