Fifty Years After Eichmann Execution, Israel Thrives

By:
Adolph Eichmann

Adolph Eichmann

Sadly though, 50 years after Eichmann’s execution the voice of Amalek is as powerful and virulent as ever with our people facing enemies around the world. Witness the rise of Hamas and Hizbullah, the surging Muslim Brotherhood, and of course Iran, whose leader regularly threatens to destroy Israel.

Little has changed on the political level as well. Witness the continual Israel-bashing by the United Nations. Also witness the actions of Eichmann’s old haven, Argentina, which has unilaterally recognized “Palestine” as an independent nation despite the Palestinian Authority’s unity agreement with the genocidal Hamas. And there’s the ever-present Islamist desire to “drive the Jews into sea,” which remains constant through whatever political changes occur.

Despite all this, Israel continues to flourish, building its economy, absorbing Jews from around the world, pioneering agricultural innovations and most recently becoming a technological power with cutting edge medical and computer industries.

Israel’s Jewish population has nearly tripled in the years since Eichmann’s ashes were cast off Tel Aviv’s coast. The city’s skyline has sprouted high-tech skyscrapers bordered by ribbons of freeways carrying an endless stream of rushing traffic that metaphorically pulses out the life-song: “Am Yisrael chai – the People of Israel live!”

What was supposed to have been a 15 minute interview, turned into an intense learning session and intellectual battle, the likes of which I had never experienced in my entire life.

Rabbi Lichtenstein (z"l).

Rav Lichtenstein did not learn Tanaim, Amoraim, Rishonim and Achronim, rather he learned with them

There is no way to explain the Holocaust. I know survivors who are not on speaking terms with G-d. I know many who are the opposite. I have no right to go there…
