Israel Correspondent

of long after he be-
came Prime Minister,
Yitzhak Shamir in-
vited an old comrade from the
pre-state Lehi underground,
now a wealthy Tel Aviv
businessman, to his home for
lunch. Over omelets, Shamir
offered him a senior position
in the new administration.
"I'd like to accept, but the on-
ly job I want is Prime
Minister, and I'm not
qualified for that" said the
businessman facetiously.
Shamir's wife Shulamit over-
heard the remark and made
a wry face. "And he's quali-
fied?" she asked, pointing to
her husband.
_ Now in his second term as
Prime Minister, Yitzhak
Shamir has become the domi-
n.ant figure in Israeli politics.
He has put down repeated
challenges within his own
party, narrowly defeated
Labor at the polls, and
established himself as the
man with the last word re-
garding Israeli policy. And
yet, despite these successes,
he remains an enigmatic and
somewhat elusive figure.
Partly, this is a result of his
somewhat obscure biography.
Shamir is a Prime Minister
who seems to have come from
nowhere. During the War of
Independence, he was a mem-
ber of the triumverate that
led the underground Lehi
movement. But following the
establishment of the state,
Shamir became an anony-
mous agent in the Mossad.
Recent press reports have
called him the head of Europ-

can operations, a designation
that he dismissed with a "no
comment." According to for-
mer colleagues in the Mossad,
Shamir was actually a mid-
dle-level operative with little
influence or power within the
organization.
After leaving the Mossad,
Shamir had a brief, only
moderately successful career
as a small businessman. In
the 1970s, Menachem Begin
brought him into politics, and
he was elected to the Knesset
in 1974. People who worked
with him in Herut, the fore-
runner of the Likud, recall
him as a stoic, colorless party
functionary.
When Begin was elected
Prime Minister in 1977, he
denied a Cabinet seat to
Shamir, appointing him in-
stead to the largely ceremon-
ial post of Speaker of the
Knesset. The only noteworthy
thing he did in that job was to
abstain on the vote over the
Camp David Agreement — a
treaty he now fervently.
supports.
In 1980, following Moshe
Dayan's resignation as For-
eign Minister, Begin chose
Shamir for the job. Once
again he made little impres-
sion. "Sometimes I had the
feeling that he was like
Chauncy Gardiner in Being
There," says a former official
of the ministry. "He never
said anything, he never did
anything, but somehow he
kept getting more and more
entrenched."
After Menachem Begins's
surprise resignation in 1983,
Shamir narrowly defeated
David Levy for the job of
party leader and Prime
