Former Ha’aretz newspaper reporter Amos Eilon died on Tuesday at the age of 84.
Eilon made his name in the annals of news coverage of the Middle East with his quintessential book from 38 years ago, titled The Israelis: Founders And Sons, which remains a seminal guide to the human side of the trials and tribulations of those who founded the state of Israel.
His book, which has no equal, remains a must for those who want to understand what makes the people of Israel tick and acts as a legacy to the memory of one of Israel’s finest journalists.
