Not sure whether Netanyahu would be been invited
to Arlington National Cemetery for Veterans Day.

But he is NOT taking any chances. He will NOT be in the U.S.
Leaving Tuesday night. Interesting.

Israel, as I had found out from my friend, Itzik,
does NOT mark November 11 as Veterans Day or Remembrance Day.

Kind of makes sense when I think about it.
It did NOT exist during WW I or WW II.
So on that score it makes sense.
But I would have thought they would join the
WW II allies who in one form or other mark November 11.

Obviously INDIVIDUAL Israelis can and DO
honor November 11, Veterans Day.

This is the Israeli equivalent of Veterans Day/Memorial Day.
