Israel to honour late US soldier who protected Jews at Nazi POW camp.
These, my friends, are fighting words:
"We are all Jews here."
"The Nazi soldiers made their orders very clear: Jewish American prisoners of war were to be separated from their fellow brothers in arms and sent to an uncertain fate."
"But Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds would have none of that. As the highest-ranking noncommissioned officer held in the German POW camp, he ordered more than 1,000 Americans captives to step forward with him and brazenly pronounced: "We are all Jews here."
"He would not waver, even with a pistol to his head, and his captors eventually backed down."
But guess what, in our current battle against evil, decent, moral individuals living in the West are also "all Jews here".
It never ends with the Jews.
Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds, G-d bless him, clearly understood that at the time.
The question is, who understands that now?
