Avraham Stern: The Poet-Warrior of Lechi
The 25th of Shvat marked the 68th anniversary of the assassination of Yair (Avraham) Stern, (may G-d avenge his blood) at the hands of British detectives, who put a bullet in his head while his hands were bound. Stern was the unquestioned leader and "Poet-Warrior" of Lechi (the original "Jewish underground"), who more than anyone else broke the Leftist policy of "havlagah" (self-restraint) & "tohar haneshek" (purity of the rifle), with his war of blood and fire against the accursed Brito-Nazis. He was the driving force behind those great Jewish warriors who eventually bounced the British out of the Holy Land on their heads, causing them to scurry like frightened rodents.
Stern was the patriarch of the underground and the principles of "barzel" (iron), that sanctified The Almighty's Name when the spirit of the fighting Jew was restored. He was a man who read and believed in the true Bible and the one true G-d. Click the following link to read Stern's powerful Lechi anthem, "Unknown Soldiers." A solemn and moving anthem that captures the true spirit of those who sacrificed their lives and often paid the ultimate price. (On a personal note, I was so moved by the song, that I eventually chose it to walk down the aisle, when I got married.) http://www.saveisrael.com/stern/sternsoldiers.htm
The other day, Arutz Sheva featured an article about a conference that was held in honor of Stern. A typical event comprised of the standard "whose who?" list of respectable, parve daati-leumi "activists", who understand Avraham Stern about as well as they understand nuclear fission. Tragic and ironic. Those who purport to understand Stern should study the man, and absorb the true ideology that fueled this Jewish warrior.
May G-d Avenge His Blood!
