Hello John,

Thank you for your speedy response to my message.  

Now you've got me curious about your correspondence with Begin. I believe Begin and Briscoe had differences of opinion when it came to tactics. Did his response suggest that?

My apologies for such a curt request to you. Since I didn't have an email address for you, I relied on the Friend Request format which only allows 200 characters. I had hoped to tell you more about Shalom Ireland and what we had in mind.

If you'd like to continue our dialogue, my email address is Valerie@ShalomIreland.com. (You can check out the film too at www.ShalomIreland.com .)

Best wishes,

Valerie
