Holocaust survivors often refer to the "banality of evil" when describing how remarkably ordinary even the highest-ranking Nazis seemed after their capture for aiding the mass murder of more than 6 million Jews during World War II.

But beyond ordinary, those where psychopaths, killers with a socialist ideology that gave them POWER...
Same kind of people are Joe Bidem, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and other in their gathering... Ordinary people...
Don’t mess with Mossad.
Eichmann was revered by Muslims.
I am not a Jew, but I know and sympathize how the Jews felt about this animal. I recall all too vividly, walking to school when I was in junior high, walking by a newspaper sitting in someone’s driveway, the headline in huge bold letters reading “EICHMANN HANGED.” I will never forget that image.
I highly recommend the Gabriel Allon series of books by author Daniel Silva. Allon was modeled after one of the Mossad team whose cover was as a painter. In the book he’s a gifted art restorer and assassin often called back in to the field (after being part of the Munich Mossad team). His mentor and handler is based on this gentleman in the article and credited for bringing Eichmann in. The books are very well written—and very interesting for those who admire the work of Mossad. I thought the Dubai assassination last year was fascinating in the intricacy in which it was carried out.
Despite his being a dirtbag, let’s not forget that he was kidnapped and taken to a country that didn’t even exist when he committed his crimes.
There was a Readers Digest condensed book that had the story of Eichmanns capture.
Real slick the way he was got out of the country too
You want to know how they got him? Well, the Mossad had a guy that they suspected was Eichmann under surveillance in South America, but they couldn’t make a positive ID. I mean, they had all of this evidence pointing to the guy, but when you are dealing with Mossad justice—ie hanging—they had to be sure. So, they all remembered that the guy always bought flowers for his wife on her birthday, so when the guy gave his wife flowers for her birthday, they moved in and grabbed him...

So should that count for him or against him?
I’m not grasping your point, frankly.
Read Isser Harel’s account, “The House on Garibaldi Street.” A little tedious in places but it tells the whole story of Eichmann’s “extraction.”
My favorite part was the trainees being told to be standing on a high-story balcony in an apartment building within a certain amount of time, with a glass of water in hand. Break-ins and such of course ensued. That's not what the Mossad wants, they want deception, finesse. The author said he knocked on the door and portrayed himself as being from the traffic agency, which was planning to put traffic cameras on her building to monitor traffic flows. Those hosting the cameras would be paid a nominal fee of course. She let him in, he went to the balcony to supposedly check the view of the traffic, and asked for a glass of water while he was there.
That's why the Mossad is effective. They train their agents to think, and how to leverage people to their own ends. Master manipulators. Unfortunately, that's resulted in more than one successful spying operation against us.
So that made him stand out how exactly? He was the one husband that actually remembered his wife's birthday?
That's a scene in the movie Spy Game, I believe.
The book was published in 1990. The Redford movie probably ripped it off.
Yes, very likely - I wasn’t trying to imply the opposite. Just that the description reminded me of the movie.
As with pirates, who are enemies of all civilized countries, I have no problem with hunting down Nazi criminals even today. I don't care if he's 109 years old and on oxygen, if there's evidence, we can and should put him on trial in Israel today. Israel didn't exist when the Nazi committed mass murder or conducted medical experiments on unwilling Jewish children? I don't see that as relevant. The actions were legal in Nazi Germany? I don't see that as relevant either. What matters is that the next generation of evil thugs with power (are you listening, Obama, Reid, and Pelosi?) know that they can never rest securely if they cross certain lines.
Both Hungary and Poland would have been able to hang him, even if Israel were not the successor state to the British Mandate of Palestine.
That is one of the most pathetically offensive posts I've ever read.
To label Eichmann a "dirtbag" is a horrible insult to dirtbags. Eichmann was a mass murderer who deserved EVERYTHING he did.
I'm curious, are you an anti-Semite or just anti-Israel?
Fixed my mistake.
