Auschwitz or Masada: Is it time to choose again?

On a hot October day in 2010, my wife and I stood atop Masada during a tour of the Holy Land. While our guide told us that most dramatic story of the 960 Jewish Zealots, tears ran down my cheeks. We had just come from the Holocaust Memorial at Yad Vashem where we witnessed the horrific images of Jews put to death in unspeakable ways in Hitler’s death camps—most notable Konzentrationslager Auschwitz.

There is no purpose in my recounting the horrific number of Jewish victims or the varied ways that the Germans found to torture and kill them—except to say that the final count and the methods of killing are numbing to the soul and must never happen again.

    I am Commander Johnson - the author of AUSCHWITZ OR MASADA. If you agree with me - that PM Netanyahu should make that announcement about the only two places where he will continue to talk to his sworn enemies, then write to Ryan Jones at Israel Today and encourage Ryan to set up a face-to-face with PM Netanyahu to discuss this concept.
