New York Lt. Gov. David Paterson was in Israel Thursday, fulfilling what he said was a lifelong dream of visiting a country that's fascinated him since the Six Day War and attending to some official business. Paterson, born legally blind, said as a child his mother read him newspaper accounts of Israel's swift victory over three Arab states in 1967. Then-Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres, now Israel's president, were some of his heroes. "These are the people I grew up following," Paterson said. He met Peres earlier this week, describing him as a "spiritual leader as much as a government official."
