Rafael “Rafi” Eitan was the head of the Mossad operation which brought Nazi extermination camp organizer Adolf Eichmann from Argentina to Israel to stand trial and be hanged.
Born: 23 November 1926 // Died: 23 March 2019.
Let’s see… What’s the greatest compliment one might give to someone? I know!
Rafi, it would have been an honor for me to serve in the Mossad under your leadership in the operation that took down the monster Adolf Eichmann.
At another funeral in Israel recently – that of Shimon Peres, the prayer Avinu Malkeinu was sung. The singer makes it the prayer of all who died in the extermination camps, as if he were singing their very souls while they were dying. You can hear it…
“They are Israelites; theirs the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; theirs the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, is the Messiah. God who is over all be blessed forever. Amen.” (Romans 9:4-5)
