Independence means never having to say you're sorry.
If we are really going to celebrate independence, then let's really do it!

(updated version from a blog I wrote in 2011)

Independence means never having to ask another nation for permission to defend itself.

Independence means never having to ask another country for arms and how we can use them.

Independence means never having to ask for permission to pray at our Holy Sites.

Independence means never having to ask another nation where Jews can and cannot live.

Independence means never having to ask another people if we can build in our own country.

Independence means never having to ask the U.N. to condemn terrorist attacks against us, because Israel would have already dealt out justice herself!

Independence means never having to apologize for hitting an anti-semitic, terror supporting, anarchist in the face with your gun.

Independence means never having to put a soldier on trial for cocking his gun while being threatened by enemies of the Jewish people.

Independence means never having to board a terrorist-supporting flotilla ship, where we arm our soldiers with paint guns, instead of meaning business.

Independence means never having to say you're sorry for civilian deaths of the enemy in a war.

Independence means not giving in to the Obamas and Kerrys of the world and releasing murdering terrorists out onto the streets for a goodwill gesture.

Independence means not having to cave into world pressure and cut yourself in pieces to carve out a terrorist state in your belly.

Independence means never having to ask another entity for permission... to exist.

LONG LIVE ISRAEL!  HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!!!  66 years old for the modern State of Israel!
