Out of the Depths:The Story of a Child of Buchenwald Who Returned Home at Last Rabbi Israel Meir Lau
Golda Meir was a world figure unlike any other. Born in tsarist Russia in 1898, she immigrated to America in 1906 and grew up in Milwaukee, where from her earliest years she displayed the political consciousness and organizational skills that would eventually catapult her into the inner circles of Israel´s founding generation. Moving to mandatory Palestine in 1921 with her husband, the passionate socialist joined a kibbutz but soon left and was hired at a public works office by the man who would become the great love of her life. A series of public service jobs brought her to the attention of David Ben-Gurion, and her political career took off.Fund-raising in America in 1948, secretly meeting in Amman with King Abdullah right before Israel´s declaration of independence, mobbed by thousands of Jews in a Moscow synagogue in 1948 as Israel´s first representative to the USSR, serving as minister of labor and foreign minister in the 1950s and 1960s, Golda brought fiery oratory, plainspoken appeals, and shrewd deal-making to the cause to which she had dedicated her life - the welfare and security of the State of Israel and its inhabitants.As prime minister, Golda negotiated arms agreements with Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger and had dozens of clandestine meetings with Jordan´s King Hussein in the unsuccessful pursuit of a land-for-peace agreement with Israel´s neighbors. But her time in office ended in tragedy, when Israel was caught off guard by Egypt and Syria´s surprise attack on Yom Kippur in 1973. Analyzing newly available documents from Israeli government archives, Francine Klagsbrun looks into whether Golda could have prevented that war and whether in its darkest days she contemplated using nuclear force. Resigning in the war´s aftermath, she spent her final years keeping a hand in national affairs and bemusedly enjoying international acclaim. Klagsbrun´s superbly researched and masterly recounted story of Israel´s founding mothe 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jo Anna Perrin.

1972. The Munich Olympics. Palestinian members of the Black September group murder 11 Israeli athletes. Nine hundred million people watch the crisis unfold on television, witnessing a tragedy that inaugurates the modern age of terror. Back in Israel, Prime Minister Golda Meir vows to track down those responsible and, in Menachem Begin´s words, ´´run these criminals and murderers off the face of the earth´´. A secret Mossad unit is mobilized, a list of targets drawn up. Thus begins the Israeli response, a mission that unfolds not over months but over decades. The Mossad has never spoken about this operation. No one has known the real story. Until now. In this riveting account, Aaron Klein peels back the layers of myth and misinformation about the ´´shadow war´´ against Black September and other terrorist groups. 1. Language: English.

It´s a great irony that Israel was more secure as an idea than it´s ever been as a nation with an army. In AD 70, when the Second Temple was destroyed, a handful of visionaries saved Judaism by reinventing it - by taking what had been a national religion, identified with a particular place, and turning it into an idea. Jews no longer needed Jerusalem to be Jews. Whenever a Jew studied, wherever he washed, would be in the holy city. In this way, a few rabbis turned a real city into a city of the mind; in this way, they turned the Temple into a book and preserved their faith. Though you can burn a city, you cannot sack an idea or kill a book. But in our own time, Zionists have turned the book back into a temple. And unlike an idea, a temple can be destroyed. The creation of Israel has made Jews vulnerable in a way they have not been for 2,000 years.In Israel Is Real, Rich Cohen´s superb new history of the Zionist idea and the Jewish state, the history of a nation is chronicled as if it were the biography of a person. He brings to life dozens of fascinating figures, each driven by the same impulse: to reach Jerusalem. From false messiahs, such as David Alroy (Cohen calls him the first superhero, with his tallis as a cape) and Sabbatai Zevi, who led thousands on a mad spiritual journey, to the early Zionists (many of them failed journalists), to the iconic figures of the modern Jewish Sparta, David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin, and Ariel Sharon, Cohen shows how all these lives together form a single story, a single life. In this unique book, Cohen examines the myth of the wandering Jew, the paradox of Jewish power (how can you be both holy and nuclear?), and the triumph and tragedy of the Jewish state - how the creation of modern Israel has changed what it means to be a Jew anywhere. 1.

´´From the blood-drenched history of the Jewish nation, we learn that violence which begins with the murder of Jews ends with the spread of violence and danger to all people, in all nations. We have no choice but to strike at terrorist organizations wherever we can reach them. That is our obligation to ourselves and to peace.” (Golda Meir) ´´July 4, 1976, was a great day to be an American, and a great day to be Jewish, and was, I am assured, an absolutely sensational day to be American and Jewish.” (George Will) During the Six-Day War in 1967, Israeli forces struck suddenly into Sinai in response to an Egyptian violation of an earlier treaty agreement that allowed Israeli ships passage through the important Straits of Tiran. In a lightning campaign, the well-trained and well-led Israeli forces, equipped with American and French vehicles and aircraft, shattered the low-quality Egyptian army forces decisively. When Jordan and Syria attacked Israel in support of Egypt, the Israelis smashed their forces also. Israel acquired most of the Sinai, as well as occupying the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and the Golan Heights. Since the Six-Day War established Israel’s military supremacy, Palestinian opposition developed a new strategy, and a greater emphasis began to be placed on covert, guerrilla actions against Israel and the development of organizations to carry out such attacks. On May 8, 1972, a new style of warfare came to the fore when four members of the Black September Organization, an amorphous branch of the Fatah movement, hijacked Belgian Sabena Flight 571 en route from Brussels to Tel Aviv. To buy time, the Israeli security establishment agreed to allow Flight 571 to land at Lod International Airport, southeast of Tel Aviv, where it was immediately escorted to the far end of the tarmac. 1.

´´De la sangrienta historia de la nación judía, aprendemos que la violencia que comienza con el asesinato de judíos termina con la propagación de la violencia y el peligro a todos los pueblos, en todas las naciones. No tenemos otra opción que atacar a las organizaciones terroristas dondequiera que podamos llegar a ellas. Esa es nuestra obligación hacia nosotros mismos y hacia la paz”. Golda Meir Durante la Guerra de los Seis Días en 1967, las fuerzas israelíes atacaron repentinamente el Sinaí en respuesta a la violación por parte de Egipto de un tratado anterior que permitía el paso de barcos israelíes a través del importante Estrecho de Tirán. En una campaña relámpago, las fuerzas israelíes bien entrenadas y bien dirigidas, equipadas con vehículos y aviones americanos y franceses, destrozaron decisivamente a las fuerzas armadas egipcias de baja calidad. Cuando Jordania y Siria atacaron a Israel en apoyo de Egipto, los israelíes también aplastaron sus fuerzas. Israel adquirió la mayor parte del Sinaí, además de ocupar Cisjordania, la Franja de Gaza y los Altos del Golán. El 8 de mayo de 1972, un nuevo estilo de guerra salió a la luz cuando cuatro miembros de la Organización Septiembre Negro, una rama amorfa del movimiento Fatah, secuestraron el vuelo belga 571 de Sabena en ruta de Bruselas a Tel Aviv.
