He’ll Be Back

The Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was in town yesterday, showing why he can be counted as a friend of the Jews and Israel.

Vowing to fight for coexistence and mutual respect among mankind around the world, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Sunday laid the cornerstone of Jerusalem’s Museum of Tolerance, and paid tribute to the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust.

“The world should know we are not building a bunker. Israel is looking forward past the suicide bombers, the terrorists, past the blood, the violence and the hatred to a time people can live side by side in peace and coexistence,” Schwarzenegger said in the keynote address at the museum groundbreaking ceremony in central Jerusalem.

In an emotional, highly personal address, Schwarzenegger recalled his native country of Austria, where “intolerance and ignorance led to atrocities and heartaches” more than six decades ago.

“Because of that I want to do whatever I can to promote tolerance and inclusion around the world,” he said.

“If only those cramped in the darkened boxcars could have a glimpse of what we are doing today… if only those in the camps could know that we have them in our hearts half a century later,” he said.

While here, Arnie encountered countless fans, only a couple of hecklers, and absolutely no bobblehead dolls.
