These articles by Robert F. Kennedy were published in the Boston Post after his March 1948 visit to the Middle East. He departed Palestine prior to Israel’s declaration of independence on May 14 and Ben-Gurion’s announcement of the name of the new country. RFK, therefore, does not refer to “Israel” or to “Israelis.”Check it out.
We believe this is the only Internet and digital posting of the Kennedy articles, therefore we present them in full. The Kennedy Library at Harvard University cites the articles on its webpage, but has not posted them. Presumably scholars can view them there. The Boston Post ceased operation in 1956.
