Rome and Carthage: A Gesture towards Peace
After Hannibal’s defeat by Scipio Africanus, writes Zvi Yavetz, Carthage tried for some fifty years to live in peace with Rome.
As I write (in November 1974), the peace conference on Israel is about to begin in Geneva. As a citizen of the state of Israel, I pray for it to succeed. As a man who has lost his entire family in the Nazi camps, who has lived under Soviet occupation and has experienced five wars in Israel, I should not have any difficulty in convincing anybody that my prayer for a genuine and lasting peace is sincere.
