Jewish revenge goes mysteriously awry

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) -- Seventy years after the most daring attempt of Jewish Holocaust survivors to seek revenge against their former tormentors, the leader of the plot has only one simple regret - that to his knowledge he didn't actually succeed in killing any Nazis.
Joseph Harmatz is one of the few remaining Jewish "Avengers" who carried out a mass poisoning of former SS men in an American prisoner-of-war camp in 1946 that sickened more than 2,200 Germans but ultimately caused no known deaths. A recently declassified U.S. military report obtained by The Associated Press has only added to the mystery of why the brazen operation did not kill Nazis, because it shows the amount of arsenic used should have been fatal to tens of thousands.

  1. Well, I have been doing zazen over more than a decade too, and when I read this, it is as if I didn't meditate a single day at all too. I ain't complaining though ;)
