Memorial Day: More Than Just a Vacation Day - ... And thus began the international war against Islamo-fascism

Memorial Day: More Than Just a Vacation Day - ... And thus began the international war against Islamo-fascism

The News & Advance
Published: May 25, 2008

Say the phrase “Memorial Day,” and more people than you’d imagine will think of city pools opening, the first three-day weekend of the year, cookouts, the unofficial start of summer, big sales at the mall. Fewer and fewer people today would first think it’s the day to honor America’s war dead.

How sad it is that the nation’s most somber holiday has turned into a day for pool parties, grilling up some burgers and dogs and snagging some bargains on markdown.

Over the course of the nation’s 228-year history, millions of men and women have answered their country’s call to service to defend freedom and liberty, not just for ourselves but often for the world. Tens of thousands of them gave the ultimate sacrifice, the last full measure of devotion, their very lives to the nation they love.

That’s the sole purpose of this day: honoring those men and women and remembering their sacrifices.

America is now in the sixth year of the war in Iraq, a conflict in which more than 4,000 U.S. soldiers have died. As a nation, for at least this one day, let’s put aside the endless arguments over whether we should have invaded Iraq … let’s not debate whether it’s possible to create democracy in the Arab world … let’s stop fighting over the planning, or lack thereof, for the post-war period … and please, let’s stop babbling on that the war was just about oil.

Let’s just focus on the men and women who’ve put themselves in harm’s way for their country.

It was almost seven years ago, that 19 Islamo-fascist terrorists launched attacks on Washington, D.C., and New York City, killing close to 3,000 people in a matter of minutes at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pa.

In the dark days following the attacks, Americans of all stripes realized there is indeed evil in this world, people whose entire purpose in life is to bring down the exemplar of Western culture: the United States of America.

And thus began the international war against Islamo-fascism. In fundamentalist Afghanistan (the lair of the Taliban and al-Qaida) and the dictatorship of Iraq (the well of simmering Arab frustration that had to be drained to make the region fertile ground for democracy, the argument went), hundreds of thousands of American soldiers hit the ground, to protect both their own nation and to liberate the people living under the thumbs of brutal leaders.

Their country called, and they responded, without reservation and knowing full well the dangers they faced.

Has the government of this nation had their backs at all times? Hardly. Just recall the horrible stories The Washington Post broke last year about the rancid conditions wounded veterans faced in Walter Reed Army Medical Center and replicated in military hospitals around the country. Then there’ve been the stories about faulty equipment and lack of proper resources that troops have had to face. This nation’s civilian and military leaders, from President Bush on down, ought to hang their heads in shame for the way they’ve treated the men and women of the armed services.

But still, America’s sons and daughters are answering the nation’s call to service, and will continue to do so. Not because they’re Republicans or Democrats, not because they’re nationalistic chest-thumpers, not because they’re capitalism’s storm troopers.

No, rather because they are willing to sacrifice and possibly die for a simple concept: the dignity of mankind and the value of a single life.

That’s what Memorial Day is all about.

Israel should have [a long time ago] press the UN for:
1) Condemming Arab Muslim 'Palestinian' parents, teachers, leaders, Mullahs, for using Arab kids as human shields and as human bombs, clarifying the real culprits in Arabs' deaths.
2) Violations by ILLEGAL PA Arabs "settlers" on Israel's "agreed" borders by the UN.
3) "Palestinian" Violation of virtually ALL agreemants pacts with Israel (Oslo, Camp David, etc.).
4) The PA official media & education = hate (crimes) campaign on "the joos", (not just on Israel...).
5) Exposing the constant intimdation on nations by the GOLIATH ARAB MUSLIM (oil) block, to tarnish innocent Israel in the UN.



1) Are you denying that the Arab racist attacks on Jews in Israel/"palestine" has started since 1838 (Safed) [so were the attacks in 1883, 1920, 1921, 1929 - Hebron, etc.]?

2) Had Israel be a (mostly) Arab-Muslim State, would the intolerant Arab-Muslim Goliath world not accept them?

3) Why is there a complete silence on the historical fact of Arab immigration late 1800s early 1900s into Israel/"palestine"?

4) What anti-Israel bigotry is stronger, the "Arab racism"; factor? or the 'Islamic-Jihad' factor?

5) 'Moral equivalence' Do you have Arab activists on behalf of Israeli victims, just like you have Jewish, Israeli, Zionists activists for the (so called) 'Palestinian cause' (whatever that is...)?

6) If humane Israel would really go after "unarmed poor palestinians" as the 'Pallwood' propagandists tell us, How many Arabs would have survived Israel's might?

7) Who's more at fault, the Arab Muslim "Palestinians" parents pushing for Shahid-isim, or the indoctrinating Mullahs, Imams in the holy Mosques for using "Palestinian" kids and women as human bombs and as human shields (so they can blame the Zionists when Arab kids die)?

8) What would have happened if Arab Muslim "Palestinians" would have invested as much energy in rebuilding their lives as they do in destroying both nations' lives in fascistic Jihad, total hatred and campaign for GENOCIDE [to "drink the blood of the Jews" or to "push them all to the sea", or to "wipe them off of map"]?

9) Why does "bad" IDF Israeli army announce an area residents' civilians to evacuate before an operation against terrorists?

10) Why did Humane Israel's IDF invented specially low range missiles designed to hit ONLY the [terror] target and minimize collateral damage?

11) When was the last time the "Palestinian" well oil-ed propaganda machine has retracted [or even apologized] for it's usual PALLYWOOD fake images industry?

12) What's the difference between a Christian in Indonesia, Buddhist in Thailand, Christian in Nigeria, in Philippines, Australians in Bali (2002), non Muslims in London (0707/2005), in Madrid (bombing), "not the-right-kind-of-Muslims" in Shiite-Sunni hateful massacres in Iraq, oppression & massacres in the "Islamic Republic of Iran", and Israeli victims of the same "evil ideology"?

13) What's a harder oppression, your "average" Arab Muslim regime's on it's own people, Hamas-tan Islamic Apartheid [which most "Palestinians" supported!] on non Muslims, or the pro-Jihad parents' on their kids?

14) What would have happened if at least ONE Arab Muslim nation [regular or oil-ed one] would really care about the Arab [brothers, that since the 1960's started to call themselves as] "Palestinians" and let them get off the terror slum into normality and even prosperity?

15) What part of 'BLIND FASCISM' do Arab-Muslims deny, the usual obsessed anti Israel demonization [no matter what Israel does] or the reluctance to see Israel's super kind gestures for those that are trying to kill them [releases from prison, giving away own land vital to it's security, humanitarian aid, etc.] not as goodness but as "weakness"?

16) Why is it that when Islamists terrorists [Hamas or Hezbullah, Islamic Jihad, etc.] succeed in making sure Arab kids die [with their known tactics of cowardly firing among or behind children, etc.] the Arabs, Muslims rejoice and the Israelis, Jews are saddened ?

16) How can land be an issue [or the blatant lies the Arab lobby's financed: Jimmy Carter has said, though he admitted that Israel is a great equal democracy for all, Arabs and Jews alike!'] if "moderate" Palestinian official government still has venomous hatred and pro 'death cult' in it's regular curriculum and on it's official TV, or that such "moderate" Arab media outlets [like Al Jazeera] still glorify mass murder as "martyrdom"?

17) Who's more powerful, the Arab Muslim Goliath Oil mafia "lobby" on the world or a Chinese, Italian, Israeli, Irish, pharmaceutical, cigarettes lobbyists in Washington?

18) Had the International Arab Muslim lobby of nations in the UN [or the EU] not threatened other nations to bash Israel 24/7 [motivated by intolerance only!], What would be then the outcome?


Let's make it clear, even if there will be a "Palestine" state, it will never change the factual history, that a group of foreign Arab immigrants came into the (historic) land of the Jews (and started to call themselves as "Palestinians" in the 1960's) and hijacked the world comunity via terrorism and Arab oil power to give them yet a second 'Palestine' state (after Jordan).
