    Today is Israel's fallen soldiers memorial day, the ceremonies have started last night as well as the first memorial siren. Every time the siren is sounded every Israeli citizen holds his head down for 2 minutes in honor of the over 22 thousand fallen and for 24 hours, the whole nation is in grief in one of it's saddest days.
    Today when 3 stars show in the sky, by Jewish tradition it will be tomorrow and officially Israel's independence day. Celebrations would immediately take place and one of the happiest 24 hours in Israel would start. No time in between.
    Israel Memorial Day

    No doubt a country should honor its fallen, and the nation which does not - is destined to be doomed!

    Long Live India Israel Friendship.....Respect!

    Israel braces for 'Nakba Day'

    Not everyone was happy on independence day:

    Unhappy Arab Israelis

    Almost all non drus (that make about 5% of the Israeli Arabs) never enlist to the IDF and most don't pay their taxes. But they do get political power, like the Arab Knesset member mentioned in the article. They make about 20% of the Israeli population. I don't know if most is correct but its true to say many of them oppose Israel and wants its destruction (like the Arab Knesset member mentioned in the article).

    Some pictures from Independence day:
