Elie Wiesel is a remarkable man. His book, Night , was one of the most insightful accounts of the holocaust that I have ever read.

OZZY - you missed the point...WAR IS NOT MORAL.... My father a WWII vet fought for the country and before he died he said if not for the GIs fighting in Europe Hitler would be in America right now. But he went to his death bed, from a moral perspective, worrying about his salvation & his soul and would he be forgiven for killing others? remember "though shalt not kill" peace

Wow Ozipop, did we listen to the same address? If we did, one of us sadly and completely missed the point.

Dear Mr. Ozipop, I am not Mr. Wiesel's speaker or defender. However, if I will try to find the logic behind this statement, which is not easy, I would think that his argument stems from the fact that the U.S. war against the Germans was just becuase it was a war to end a war and everything that came with it. This brings up the question of who gets to decide what war is just? I do not have the answer and I don't know if he does as well. You bring up an interesting question.

[s]This guy was a holocaust survivor, right? So that means that if the United States did not go to war, the Holocaust would have magically stopped due to Hitler's compassion for Jews?[/s] "The only just war was the one against hitler" Elie Wiesel. Youtube description: "Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel argues that war is inherently immoral because of the suffering and destruction it entails." WTF??????? admins on youtube are morons.
