Charles Krauthammer, a longtime conservative pundit and staunch Israel supporter, passed away on June 21 at the age of 68.

Krauthammer announced on June 8 that he only had “weeks” to live after a recurrence of cancer occurred. He had a malignant tumor removed from his abdomen in August, which resulted in a series of health complications that kept him hospitalized.

Krauthammer had been optimistic that he would be able to be back on the political scene soon, but tests revealed his cancer had returned and was “aggressive,” prompting Krauthammer to write, “My fight is over.”

He concluded his announcement by stating that he had “no regrets.”

“It was a wonderful life — full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living,” Krauthammer wrote. “I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.”

Not only has Krauthammer been an intellectual giant amongst conservatives, he also been a fierce supporter of Israel; he was opposed to the 1993 Oslo Accords as well as the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
