The Nazi, Adolf Eichmann, One Of The Architects Of The Holocaust, Was Hanged This Day 55-Years Ago — In Israel.

by Anura Guruge



One of the worst among what was a sorry cabal of murderers and thugs. He joined the Nazis when 26. He was hanged 30 years later.

Being the coward he was he fled Germany in 1945 as the end was near. Israel’s Mossad located and captured him in Argentina in 1960.

He was supposed to be hung by 11:59pm on March 31. But, they had some technical difficulties and the execution did not take place till June 1. Some sources still have March 31, 1962 as the date of his death.

Now that I am irrevocably associated with Kati Preston’s near-Best Seller “Holocaust to Healing: Closing the Circle” I am getting Holocaust related material on my e-mail. This one, on Thursday, was from UNESCO. I could NOT ignore that. UNESCO was a BIG part of my life for 17 years. They paid for some of my education; e.g. Swansea

stpeterpalloThis is an honored and much revered tradition going back a very long time though there has been ‘minor’ changes in format of late. Nonetheless the handing out of the pallium ceremony will take place on Monday, June 29 — during the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul at St. Peter’s Basilica.

This year 46 new Metropolitan Archbishops from around the world, including Blase J. Cupich (Chicago) & John Charles Wester (Santa Fe), will get their palliums at that ceremony. It is assumed that Pope Francis will do the honors.

My friend and frequent collaborator ‘Mark T.’ is a longtime and avid collector of papal coins. I have done many posts about his papal coins in my (old) “Popes and Papacy” blog.

Go to “Popes and Papacy” and search on ‘coins’ or click on the coins, to the right, to take you to a post that will serve as a good start.


This is a Billon Denaro Paparino of Urban VI (#203), 1378 to 1389, the LAST non-cardinal to be elected pope. He proved to be more than a handful. Not a coincidence that they have never elected a non-cardinal since! And he was 600 years ago. I have a LOT about him in my “Next Pope 2011” book.

On the right image, starting at the upper right, it +VRB’ PP SESTVS in gothic font
on the left image (two keys), starting from the upper right, S PETRVS ET PAVL (i.e., Saints Peter and Paul).


$_57
Another restitution medal (c. 1710) engraved by Giovanni Battista Pozzo, of John VI (#85), 701 to 705. So this coin minted 1,ooo years after his death!


$_57 (1)
Another one by the same artist/engraver, of Portuguese physician John XXI (#188), 1276 – 1277 who died when the ceiling of his hastily constructed library, in Viterbo [Italy], collapsed on him. So this was 500 years after his death.


Pope Francis Has The Damn Chutzpah To ACCUSE The ALLIES Of Not Doing Enough To Stop The Holocaust!

WTF?

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.

This is beyond bloody amazing.

Trying to blame the Allies — and that means us the Brits and THE AMERICANS.

Jesus Wept.

This coming from a MAN who is constantly accused of NOT doing enough to protect his own brother Jesuits during the Argentinian ‘Dirty War’. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

What did the Vatican do? What did Pius XII do?

What did his BELOVED (bloody) Argentina do … other than gladly welcome Nazis?

This pope says the darnest things BUT this takes the cake.

Don’t get ALL prizzy with ME, BUT this has to be asked. Is he mentally stable? This is CRAZY talk.

Yes, I am ANGRY. Very angry.

I was NOT born during WW II but I know that the ALLIES — that means US — did everything we could to stop the bloody Germans and Italians.

This Pope is NUTS.
