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!”

Our journey begins by attempting to see things differently, only then can we be open to change.

Despite Western ‘Conventional Wisdom&PC,’ the Arab/Israeli conflict was never about the Palestinians

Confrontation & accountability, proven techniques, might also help dealing with religious terrorists

In fact, wherever you see soldiers in Paris today, you pretty much know you’re near Jewish site

The abuse following publication proved a cautionary tale: no one followed in Peters’s footsteps

Plainly, there is no guiding hand dictating choices across the board.

In this particular case, the issue was whether the Arkansas prison system could prohibit, for security reasons, a devout Muslim’s maintaining a beard of a certain length as a matter of religious practice.

While we recognize the Republican Jewish Coalition is hardly a non-partisan outfit, a snippet from a statement the group released is worthy of note:

“These are good matzah balls,” my aunt Robertine would say, but her sister Irma would counter “No, not compared to Mama’s. They were always so light yet they never fell apart.”

Despite the 2005 Koby Mandell Act no Palestinian implicated in harming an American has been charged

The NY Times suggestion that HaMavesar cropping women from a photo is Israeli censorship is absurd.

Warsaw Ghetto: At its height, the Nazis walled in some 500,000 Jews within the1.3 square mile area.

The world wars caused unimaginable anguish for the Jews but God also scripted a great glory for our people.

The risks were great, but certain death awaited them if they remained. The gamble paid off, though the family was separated for the next four years of the war.

Beyond the severe discomfort there was also the danger of getting sunk by enemy submarines prowling the seas.

As his bomber lost altitude with the ground rushing up, my father remembered his last thought: “How am I going to get out of this?

Seventy-five years ago on November 10 the Nazis unleashed a wave of terror, destruction and death known as Kristallnacht upon Germany’s Jews, a fearsome presage of the Holocaust. On that day, the childhood of my then-12-year-old father, Kurt Lion, of blessed memory, was abruptly and savagely ended.

Forty years ago this week, Jews the world over watched in agony as Arab terrorists kidnapped and eventually massacred eleven Israeli Olympic athletes. The International Olympic Committee, bowing to Arab pressure, has repeatedly refused these Israelis a proper commemoration. But we as Jews ought to pay them the tribute of remembering their individual lives, deeds, and accomplishments.
