The Brisker Rav and Ha-Rav Maimon

Our Rabbi, Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehudah Ha-Cohain Kook
Ha-Rav Eliezer Melamed wrote in the newspaper "Besheva": After the anti-Zionist Brisker Rav - Ha-Rav Yitzchak Zev Soloveitchik – harshly opposed the building of Heichal Shlomo (the building of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel), Ha-Rav Yehudah Leib Maimon wrote a scathing criticism about him. My father and teacher, Ha-Rav Zalman Melamed told me that he went to speak with Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehudah about this and asked him: When a lesser Rabbi disagrees with a greater Rabbi, isn't this an impingement on the honor of the Torah and shaming a Torah scholar? Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehudah answered: Certainly. Ha-Rav Zalman Melamed then asked about Ha-Rav Maimon: How does he harshly disagree with the Brisker Rav? Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehudah answered: "But he is right" (meaning in regards to the dispute about Heichal Shlomo and similar issues). My father, who was then still younger, feared that he may have insulted Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehuda since the latter justified Ha-Rav Maimon's actions.
At a later period, my father accompanied Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehudah on his way, and Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehudah said: You think that you are honoring the Brisker Rav. But in order to honor, one must understand and know, and then the honor is true, and the criticism does not impinge upon that which he must honor. And he related that there is a question why the Rambam placed the laws of the head Tefillin before those of the hand Tefillin (which one puts on first), and Ha-Rav Tzvi Yehudah explained before the Brisker Rav that the Rambam wanted to teach the idea that the head Tefillin is a mitzvah in and of itself, and he therefore did not teach them in the proper order. And he said that the Brisker Rav, who was an expert in the Rambam, liked his explanation.
