PM: Eichmann Arrest Was Moral


Speaking at a ceremony in the Knesset Monday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that the capture of Nazi Holocasut mastermind Adolf Eichmann was a moral act, and in fact a moral imperative. “It was a turning point for the state of Israel and the Jewish people, the beginning of the pursuit of justice against our persecutors,” Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu was speaking at an event commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Eichmann trial.
