The Phoenix

From the ashes of the Holocaust, That all-consuming fire, The Phoenix has arisen And kept hold of the old desire To create for itself a Heimat Free from the infiltration Of any other creed or race, A single Jewish nation; To create for itself a climate Free from fear of persecution To find some special sacred space To build its own final solution.

Amen, brother. Let us concentrate on 'building,' as others seek 'futilely' to tear us down! Thank you, Gershon
