Accused Nazi War Criminal Dies One Month Before Trial.

Something to think about...

More than 60 years after the end of World War II and the liberation of the concentrations camps, Israel is still working to bring those responsible for crimes against their people to justice. Sadly, here in America, we'd rather forget or turn a blind eye to those responsible for 9/11 all in the name of political correctness.  

Next time you hear some protected soul talking about how they don't really care about finding Osama Bin Laden or his operatives because it's been 10 years and so much time has past that it's not really that important, tell them to go tell that to an Auschwitz survivor.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse. When a people are used as mere human instruments for firing cannon or thrusting bayonets, in the service and for the selfish purposes of a master, such war degrades a people. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their free choice, — is often the means of their regeneration. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other." -John Stuart Mill.
