Professor Thomas L. Saaty is a world-renowned Operations Research (OR) scientist. His death has created a vacuum which can hardly be filled. His absence in scholastic writing in the field of MCDM will be widely felt for a long time. The world of OR will remember him not only as a mathematician, originator of AHP and ANP, but also as a good human being. He has numerous contributions in the field of OR, particularly MCDM. In the present article, I have highlighted his wonderful contribution in resolving the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
