Moshe Arens is an Israeli politician. He was a member of the Likud party, and served as Minister of Defense three times.
Arens immigrated to the United States with his family in 1939 and became an American citizen. In 1948, when Israel achieved its independence and began fighting wars with the Arabs, Arens immigrated to Israel and became a right-wing activist, joining the Irgun forces, which were led by Menachem Begin, a man who he would work with much in his political career. After the war he entered politics, eventually being elected to the Knesset and becoming chairman of its committee on foreign affairs and defense.
