But Cuba denied them entrance. Desperate, they tried heading straight for Florida, but the Americans would not let them dock either. Left with no choice, they returned to Europe where hundreds of them perished in the Holocaust.

Nothing, Lucilius, is ours, except time.

The Holocaust gave the Jews a pause from hatred and helped turn the sympathy of the nations toward them enough to vote in favor of establishing a Jewish state. But that pause was short lived. Since the Six Day War in 1967, the world has been turning against the Jews once more, and specifically against Israel.

But now I ought to close my letter.

1 – The tiny Jewish country is more evil than the worst and largest totalitarian and genocidal states today and in history.

Give yourself to me, therefore, as a gift of great price,and, that you may strive the more, reflect that you yourself are mortal,and that I am old.
