For once I agree with Lily Galili

Commenting on the opening ceremonies for the new Yad Vashem, Haaretz journalist Lily Galili - a lady of feisty and usually somewhat eyebrow-raising views -- concludes her article:

"Jerusalem was under siege yesterday because of the unusual number of foreign dignitaries, a number not seen in Jerusalem since the funeral of Yitzhak Rabin, some said with satisfaction. But it was a sad happiness, it should be said. It would have been so much nicer to have seen them all here for a happier occasion."

--- agreed.
