Alav haShalom and may his memory be for a blessing.
source: http://www.jpost.com/NationalNews/Ar...aspx?id=275812Former prime minister Yitzhak Shamir passed away at the age of 96 on Saturday at the nursing home in which he resided in Tel Aviv after a long illness.
He will be laid to rest at Jerusalem's Mount Herzl Cemetery in a state funeral on Monday after his son, Yair, returns from abroad. The procession will begin at the Knesset, where the public will be invited to pay its last respects...
Shamir served as Israel's seventh prime minister from 1983 to 1984 and again from 1986 to 1992, the longest serving in Israel's history after David Ben-Gurion. He was known for resisting international pressure to make concessions, yet initiated a peace process in Madrid Spain that led to many future diplomatic overtures by his successors.
