“On Yom Ha Zikaron, beginning on the evening of 21st April 2015 and ending on the evening of 22nd April 2015 the state of Israel remembered the fallen: both soldiers of the IDF, and all who have been murdered by the neverending Jihad – a subset of the global Jihad which assails all non-Muslims qua non-Muslims – that began before the modern Jewish state was founded and that continues to this day.
As the Times of Israel reported on April 19, flags were laid on the graves of every soldier:
“23,320 Israeli flags being placed on graves of fallen soldiers.
“Military officials across the country are placing 23,320 flags at half-mast on the graves of soldiers, police officers, and other security personnel who have fallen throughout the history of the State of Israel and the Zionist movement, as the state prepares to mark Memorial Day at sundown Tuesday.
‘Israel will come to a standstill Tuesday evening at 8 pm for a minute-long memorial siren to commemorate the country’s fallen soldiers and terror victims.
‘The siren will be followed by the lighting of a memorial flame for the fallen at the Western Wall, the site of the official state commemoration ceremony.
‘On Wednesday another official memorial ceremony will be held at the Mount Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem, and will be attended by IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, as well as senior Israel Defense Forces officers and politicians.
“At 1 pm Wednesay, a separate commemoration for Israel’s terror victims (that is: for all those who have been ritually murdered by Muslims who were waging Jihad, driven by the Jew-hatred hard-wired into Islam – CM) will take place at Mount Herzl.
‘Memorial Day will end abruptly at sundown Wednesday with the start of Independence Day, traditionally ushered in with fireworks and street celebrations nationwide”.
Here is a beautiful setting of Psalm 121 with a video montage honouring the IDF who stand every day between their fellow citizens and the genocidal Jihad.
May the Holy One, the Shepherd of Israel, watch over all the living soldiers – many of them so very, very young – and over the people within Israel whom they guard with their lives. They stand on the very front lines, assailed by Jihad every day.
And for the fallen, may their memory be a blessing.
Here is part of what Geert Wilders said of Israel, in Israel, in the “Facing Jihad” conference, convened by Israeli politician Aryeh Eldad, in Jerusalem, November 2008.
“…Israel is under siege, like the Jewish community in the Land of Israel is under siege for over a century now. Israel with all its glory and splendour is unique, and its history unparalleled.
“Yet, Israel’s security situation is not unique, and neither is its enemy.
“Samuel Huntington writes it so aptly: “Islam has bloody borders”.
“Israel is located precisely on that border. This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, just like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. (And I might add, Nigeria, Central African Republic, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania…– CM).
“Israel is simply in the way of the Islamic advance. Just like West Berlin was during the Cold War.
“Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us..
“If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other places to release its energy and its desire for conquest.
“Therefore, the war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. (and, for that matter, against the entire non-Muslim world – CM). It is jihad…”.
Every Islamo-informed Infidel, even if not Jewish, as the vast majority of us are not, should rejoice in little Israel’s victories and grieve for Israel’s fallen, as if they were our own…for they are.
