Remembering Israel’s Fallen Soldiers

Yesterday at sundown Israelis began observance of Memorial Day in remembrance of Israel’s 22,684 fallen soldiers who gave their life to the defense of the nation.

Now despite the fact that there are almost daily postings about Israel in the “Comment is Free” Middle East section, you’re unlikely to know that it is Memorial Day in Israel from reading “Comment is Free” and chances are that this year is going to be no different from other years. For example, from a review of articles published in “Comment is Free” at the same time last year, Memorial Day was not covered. On Memorial Day itself last year (April 28th), there was an article by resident Jew-hater, Ben White, on Fatah and an article by Theobald Jew, Abe Hayeem, on boycotting. What’s worse, on Israel’s Independence Day last year, which follows one day after Memorial Day, there was an article by verstinkener Jew, Antony Lerman, touting the one-state solution.

Anyway, here’s a little something to remember Israel’s fallen soldiers (h/t sababa):
