Shamir, Moshe
▪ 2005

      Israeli novelist and politician (b. Sept. 15, 1921, Zefat, British Palestine—d. Aug. 20, 2004, Rishon LeZiyyon, Israel), championed the socialist ideals of kibbutz life in his novels; in the 1960s he launched a political career as a member of the conservative Likud Party, but after the 1979 peace treaty with Egypt was negotiated, he quit to form a more right-wing party. An active member of the underground during the Israeli war of independence, he created the movement's newsletter, Ba-mahaneh, a publication that would become the official magazine of the Israeli army. The author of more than 50 novels and plays, as well as short stories and essays, Shamir received the Israel Prize for Literature in 1998.
