Today, Tuesday, is Holocaust Remembrance Day

It is worth paying attention to the intricacies of our world. Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Today, World Net Daily broke the story that Abu Mazen provided the financing for the terrorist murders of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Munich. Today, Abu Mazen, whom President Bush has described as "a man of peace," made a speech to the Palestinian parliament. In it, he said, "Ending the occupation in all of its forms and from all of the territories occupied since 1967, including our eternal capital Jerusalem, is our national priority. He went on to say that "the Palestinian people will not accept anything less than the exercise of our right to self-determination and the establishment of our independent state with Jerusalem as its capital; a genuine, contiguous state without any (Jewish) settlements . . . "

The Arabs are already referring to the road map as the "victory map," and Jews are referring to it as the "road map to nowhere." Today, as you remember those of us, those millions of us, who were murdered in the Holocaust, consider also the safety and security of the world's largest community of Jews today, in the state of Israel, "including our eternal capital Jerusalem."
