Wednesday, June 11th, 2008 Regarding the previous post, “Sympathy for the Devil,” here’s a good piece in The Boston Globe that looks at the increasing awareness - 40 years late - of Bobby Kennedy as America’s first victim of Palestinian terror. In 1948, 20 years before his death, young Bobby was in Jerusalem covering Israel’s War of Independence for another Boston paper, the old Boston Post. Here are several of his interesting dispatches - insightful about Kennedy as well as Israel’s birth pangs — and some photos of young Kennedy in Israel.
