I am posting this at the tail end of Israel's Soldiers and Terror Victims Memorial Day.  In a very short time we will transition from mourning to celebration.  I consider the connecting of our Memorial and Independence Days to be among the wisest decisions made by our early leaders.  There wouldn't be a state if we hadn't fought for it.  John Lennon was wrong in claiming that an ideal world is one in which you don't have to die for anything.  If it's not worth dying for, it's not worth living for.  The recent addition of terror victims to Memorial Day is also very important.  Our enemies attack us all, not just our soldiers.  They don't distinguish between civilian and military.

Veteran readers of this blog know that I blog elsewhere, on Shiloh Musings and me-ander.  Please visit those blogs. I've been debating which of my recent articles to post here. In the end I decided to fly the flag of the State of Israel. Please read U.S. Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates Admits: "The Emperor Has No Clothes!" and Ehud Barak, Wrong Again. "Brave Decisions" Don't Bring Peace by clicking the titles. Thank you.


Israeli Flags Forever Flying!

Through thick and thin, no matter what the world wants and says. Wind is רוח ruach, spirit.
Just like we see in Jewish History, we will overcome our enemies.
We just must let our רוח ruach, spirit  prevail.
חג עצמאות שמח
Happy Israeli Independence Day
