Profile: Who Is Uri Avneri ‒ Haim Hanegbi

March 15, 1970

While Avneri warns against militarization and Spartanization, he never ceases to glorify the Israeli army. While repeatedly declaring his desire for peace, he becomes a rabid chauvinist once a war breaks out. While critical of zionism he pleads loyalty to patriotism and accuses his opponents of damaging the national interest.
