The House on Garibaldi Street


This book, simply put, is the most exciting, fascinating, engrossing book I have ever read. Impossible to put down, and if so, to stop thinking about it. The most amazing thing is: It really happened; this is no fiction. It is the capture of the nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann by the Mossad chief at the time in Argentina. It reads as a thriller book but it's all true.


From the planning of the coup, so to speak, to the final bringing to Israel in a regular civil airplane(¡!) it is short of amazing. The author really has no difficulty in telling the story, and there is no need in telling anything but what happened and how they captured the man. Every detail in the story is meaningful. The author has no need at all to embellish anything, it just tells itself.


Frankly, fiction will seem pathetic to you after reading this one. And if you are interested in the subject: the hunt for nazi criminals; how nazis who escaped Germany at the end of the war made it in a foreign society and mingled with the locals; or are interested in the minds of this type of persons... or how an operation like this one -ilegally capturing a person in another country and bringing him to court in Israel: the politics, the failed diplomacy, the infrastructure, the detailed planning and secrecy and the execution of the plan... then this one will give you all.


As I said, this is not literature. This is for real. And reality is far more exciting than the imagination in this case.




On Cuba's Revolution:

"The revolution was a cover for committing atrocities without the slightest vestige of guilt ... we were young and irresponsible. We were pirates. We formed our own caste ... we belonged to and believed in nothing -no religion, no flag, no morality or principle. It's fortunate we didn't win, because if we had, we would have drowned the continent in barbarism."

Jorge Masetti, In the Pirate's Den

España [por el contrario de Estados Unidos] se ha ido configurando, siglo a siglo, como una sociedad herida por la envidia, en la que todavía hacer demagogia con la pobreza rinde réditos electorales y donde los que han tenido o tienen grandes riquezas -tanto los progres como la iglesia católica– no pocas veces predican la solidaridad con el prójimo a la vez que protegen sus patrimonios nada desdeñables en SICAVs, algo, dicho sea de paso, bastante lógico tal y como está el panorama fiscal.”

César Vidal en su artículo Las razones de una diferencia en

2. La Constitución se fundamenta en la indisoluble unidad de la Nación española, patria común e indivisible de todos los españoles.

3.1. El castellano es la lengua española oficial del Estado. Todos los españoles tienen el deber de conocerla y el derecho a usarla.

I know it full well
My soul, once true to God
Is chosen for hell."
