Correcting a Minor Historical Inaccuracy

Incidentally to a story on one of the current Satmar Rebbes 9there are two, brothers), Arutz 7 has written that Rudolf Kastner, who arranged for a rescue train out of Hungary upon which the previous Rebbe, Yoel Teitelbaum, escaped, was assassinated by "someone who had lost his family".

Not true.

Kastner was shot by two former GSI (Shabak) agents, Dan Shemer, the trigger man, and Ze'ev Eckstein, the driver. They claimed a former Lechi operative, Yosef Menkes (who I met many years ago in the 1970s), initiated the act and provided the weapon.
