2018's Memorial Day for fallen soldiers and terror victims

Israel's begun its current Memorial Day for soldiers and civilians murdered by jihadists:
Israel ushered in Memorial Day Tuesday with a minute-long siren in tribute to 23,645 soldiers and civilians who have fallen in the country’s wars and terror attacks.

Knesset Speaker Yoel (Yuli) Edelstein ushered in the memorial ceremonies by lighting a candle in the Knesset’s Chagall Hall and reciting a chapter from the Book of Psalms, while Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot, President Reuven (Ruby) Rivlin, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman and President Reuven (Ruby) Rivlin prepared to address memorial services around the country.

Speaking at the official state ceremony at the Western Wall, Eisenkot told bereaved families that while each individual death leaves a searing mark of pain and longing , Memorial Day is a time for joint mourning for a nation that has sacrificed its sons and daughters in the struggle for freedom.’

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
