Am Israel Chai.

Our reader Franklin D. Rosenfeld (make sure to check out his blog) kindly provided us with this impressive picture of the Israeli Air Force's flypast over Auschwitz on September 4, 2003. These are the memorable words Brigadier General Amir Eshel read out from the lead jet as the fighters soared over the death camp:
“We pilots of the air force, flying in the skies above the camp of horrors, arose from the ashes of the millions of victims and shoulder their silent cries; we salute their courage and promise to be the shield of the Jewish people and its nation: Israel.”
