THE DEFINITIVE RAP: Israel’s Memorial Day Is about War, Not Peace; Interview with Ruthie Blum


JERUSALEM (VINnews) — “Israel’s Memorial Day is about war, not peace. And it shouldn’t be a time for refrains of Kumbaya. The only song we should be singing is Hatikvah,” said our guest, Ruthie Blum whom we have the pleasure to hear.

The purpose of Yom Hazikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day is to pay tribute to fallen Israeli soldiers and victims of terror who were targeted because they are Jews. This year grieving Jewish families are offended by the Defense Ministry’s gift of a wall clock designed with Islamic and Christian symbols. The insult felt by these bereaved families is so strong to the extent that they will return it. Ruthie explained that what is going on this year was a called politically correct decision, to keep the peace, rather than call it what it is. War.

Also discussed was how Ramadan was celebrated, and about the controversy surrounding Temple Mount.

In her spunky way Ruthie talked about her quote, “I support aborting kids when they reach puberty and start slamming the door in your face. Otherwise, I oppose it,” and the general consensus in Israel about the news that the Roe vs. Wade decision has been struck down.

THE DEFINITIVE RAP remembers our brothers and sisters who have given their lives to Israel to fight our enemies, and those who were just civilians trying to live their lives, but were murdered in cold blood because they were Jewish. Shed a tear and feel the pain of the families who have lost their sons, daughters, husbands, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends.

No non-Israeli Jew should sing the national anthem of a foreign country (i.e., Israel).
