Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah)

Today, it is Holocaust Remembrance Day.

In Israel it is known as Yom HaShoah.

Today, it is more important than ever that we remember.

Especially so in light of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's remarks before the Durban II Conference yesterday.

There is still evil in the world and that evil would like nothing better than a second Holocaust.

President Obama's unwillingness to stop Iran from developing a nuclear bomb demonstrates Edmund Burke's tried but true adage, "All that is needed for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

In Israel, at 10 a.m. on Yom HaShoah everything stops including highway traffic in Tel Aviv.

And then life goes on.
