IDF Paratroopers marching to Jerusalem
דברי ראש הממשלה בביקור בחטמ”ר אפרים
How has it come to be that self defence is illegal?
Today is Remembrance Day in Australia.
We remember all our soldiers who fell in war while defending our rights, freedoms and liberty.
Just a few days ago, a few more of Australia’s soldiers were killed Afganistan.
This morning when I read the paper there was only one small article about Remembrance Day. What occupied the page was a large scale photo and article about couples marrying on this auspicious day as it is 11th November (11) 2011 - an opportunity that only comes around once a century.
It saddens me that we do not treasure our liberties and freedom in Australia. That we do not have the respect to remember the soldiers that died defending them. That we’re more interested in a ‘lucky day’ than our men and women in the Defence Forces.
Although I personally do not know anyone who has served in the Australian army, my grandfather served in the British forces. There, he was a cook and interpreter. In our house we have the medals he was awarded as well as his identity book that included all his information - including the size of his uniform.
Let us at least have the decency to commemorate and remember our soldiers and hope that our soldiers who are currently deployed overseas return home safely.
LEST WE FORGET
