Israeli General, Politician. He was head of the Israel's famed Mossad intelligence agency from 1963 to 1968, and former head of Israel's Defense Forces. Between 1954 and 1963, he served as general of both the southern and northern Israeli commands, and as Golani Brigade Commander. As head of Mossad, he provided the nation's defense forces with vital intelligence during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, which lasted from June 5th to June 10th. The six day war resulted in a decisive Israeli victory over the combined Arab forces of Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco. Following military service he served briefly in the government as minister of transportation and communications, and also served as a member of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. In 2003 he was awarded the Israel Prize for Lifetime Achievement by the Israeli Government, for his contributions to the nation and society. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
