There is no more appropriate appellation than “Last of the Mohicans” when talking about Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Horev. He served as the IDF’s chief of ordnance, quartermaster-general and chief scientist, and was a nuclear scientist, president of the Technion and chairman of Rafael Advanced Defense Systems. He also headed the committee that investigated the 1974 Ma’alot massacre and sat on the Turkel Commission of Inquiry into the Gaza flotilla raid.

In short, Horev can always be found where the action is.
