JPost.com: MIRI REGEV: NO DIASPORA JEW TO LIGHT TORCH ON INDEPENDENCE DAY THIS YEARAfter Miri Regev's relationship with Diaspora Jews dwindled over the past year, the MK decided not to bring a Diaspora Jew to light a torch at the Independence Day ceremony this year. Tamar Beeri, March 11, 2019 (cont.)Esser Agaroth (2¢):
I don't. I am kind of sick of these armchair Zionists.
What do they think they're entitled to do?
Throw money at us, tell us what to do, while we risk our lives, be it from rockets in Ashqelon and Haifa, tractor drivers and knife wielders in Jerusalem, snipers and infiltrating terrorists in Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria), while our children risk their lives in the Israeli Defense Forces [IDF], so that they can have a homeland when their grandchildren graduate from college and they retire, or it finally gets dangerous enough for them to finally run to the airport in their limousine, and get on the plane AND have a representative light a torch on the day celebrating the founding of the very State where they refuse to live?
Yeah, probably. That's what they're entitled to.
Here's to MK Miri Regev holding her ground.
