Strange Independence Day

Despite it all
patriotism remains strong
and olim keep coming!
Chag Sameach!
Baruch Hashem!!

This morning's IBA radio news mentions Israelis injured, yes attacked by Arabs, with the same emotion as he reports on the weather.

Even though the army funds military sections in cemeteries in Judea and Samaria, apparently they don't fund the type of memorials which are routinely funded in the rest of the country.

Did you read that Arabs Attack Five Young Jews in Jaffa ?

Or 'Anti-Zionist' Director Chosen to Promote Israel?

Or JUDGE: ISRAEL DISCRIMINATED AGAINST WITHDRAWAL OPPONENTS?

Despite it all, 83% of Israeli Jews still plan on displaying Israeli Flags for Independence Day.

Olmert may be tired, but we still have strong, motivated heroes here. And considering that, read more about reciting the Hallel and other prayers on Yom Ha'atzmaut.

I'm sure he can afford to retire. Wish I could.
