    There was some justice: Eichmann was forced to watch the IDF mop the floor of the Sinai Peninsula with Egypt and their allies during the Six Day War. He did not like what he saw.

    It this was today , we would have to take into account that his PTSD , made him susceptible to derogatory propaganda and he has suffered more than need be and should forced to do community service in the Jewish community.
    Anything else would be inhumane.
