    ... onslaught of the Jewish State on its most holy day of the year. Reinforced by Syria's simultaneous thrust into the Golan starting the Yom Kippur War, Egypt unleashed a deadly barrage of fire and force that saw it overrun Israel's "impregnable" Bar-Lev line, though thinly defended at the time. Arik was the fearless tank commander using wit, determination, and chutzpah in the Sinai deserts to challenge the penetration of deadly Egyptian armored forces there. If the Israelis learned that he was holding out and possibly even doing well their spirits were lifted, if the news was that he was being beaten back their spirits would sag and they would fear for the future of their State. G-d bless you Arik, a proud lion in a pride of lions nurtured by the Most High G-d of Israel through His-Story to guard over the survival of the Jewish State and leading to the Alpha Lion of them all, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Israel's Messiah, who will be the biggest savior of Israel of all times.
