RFK’s daughter honors her father’s legacy and devotion to Israel

As a war correspondent for The Boston Post during Israel’s War of Independence, Robert F. Kennedy saw the country as a beacon of hope in a world turned asunder after World War II.

It was his firm commitment to Israel’s right to exist and America’s obligation to support its greatest friend in the Middle East that led Palestinian Sirhan Sirhan to assassinate Kennedy in the midst of his run for the White House 47 years ago.

To mark the anniversary of his assassination on June 6, 1968, his daughter, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, came to Israel to pay tribute to his legacy and everlasting commitment to peace at the annual Herzliya Conference at the IDC.
