More on Yom Ha'atzmaut

Well, today is the day that the Rabbanut Harashit (Israeli Rabbinate) declared that we celebrate Israeli Independence Day as Yom Hazikaron or Remembrance Day was pushed to Monday so that people wouldn't be mechallel shabat (violate the Sabbath) to travel to Yom Hazikaron ceremonies.

Anyway, I hope that the Israeli people and their elected officials have the backbone to stand up to the Palestinians and their enemies around them.

In my opinion, Israelis and Jews should turn the question around on the Palestinians and force them to prove that they are committed to peace and not saying one thing in English and another in Arabic, which is their usual ploy.

Should the U.S. give back California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas to Mexico because they won? Maybe the Anglophones in Quebec should leave Quebec because they were "mean" or insensitive to the Francophones.

Nowhere in an Israeli textbook or Sefer (Jewish holy book) does it compare Arabs to pigs and monkeys.

May this Yom Ha'atzmaut be used for bettering the people of Israel and Jews worldwide.
