Avigdor Kahalani, one of Israel’s legendary heroes in war and peace, used to take large groups of Israeli youths on tours of the Galilee’s historic sites. At the end of the tour, he would gather them in a huge natural amphitheatre and unfold Israel’ s flag. “This is your identity!” he would tell them. “This is your pride! The symbol of your freedom, of your heritage, of your nation!” Hundreds of kids would roar with enthusiasm.
