Hatikva as the IDF Fly Over Auschwitz

Yad Vashem Memorial
We the pilots of the Israeli Air Force flying in the skies above the camp of horrors, arose from the ashes of the millions of victims to shoulder their silent cries, salute their courage, and promise to be the shield of the Jewish People and its Nation Israel...

These words were said in Hebrew as the Israeli Air Force flew over Auschwitz. The films are not new, but deserve to be watched over and over again. It may not seem like a big deal for the IAF to fly over Auschwitz, but to those who lost an entire generation, to the survivors who still suffer, to their offspring raised in the shadow of the Shoah, it is a big deal.

When one reads the hatred in the posted remarks on any pro-Israel websites, videos or articles, you can see that what the Nazis started is still alive and well, nurtured by those who want to impose their primitive, medieval ways, along with sharia law on the world. The world may again choose to remain blind to this new threat of genocide, but the difference is, this time, we the Jewish people, have our own country and our own armed forces, and we will never walk like sheep to the slaughter again.
