Dwight Eisenhower & Second World War
MOSHE DAYAN: Moshe Dayan was born in Degania in 1915. He studied science at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Eight decades later, during the Second World War, rumour was rife that Dwight Eisenhower, commander of the European theatre of operations, was having an affair with the lady who drove his car. Censorship ensured that this never escaped the confines of coterie gossip. The American system, sensibly, might not care too much about peacetime generals but it protected its wartime commanders. Grant and Eisenhower went on to become elected presidents. Class-conscious Britain went a step further: it protected its losers as well, apart from offering huge financial bonuses to successful generals, not to mention the occasional elevation to prime minister to heroes like Wellington. Lord Cornwallis was not punished for losing the ...

The shop is run by Muslims. Feel free to share this with others. In case you are not able to read the sign below, it says, "We will be closed on Friday, September 11, to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Ali." Imam Ali flew one of the planes into the twin towers. Nice, huh? Try telling me we're not in a Religious war! THIS HAS NOT BEEN AROUND.SO MAKE SURE IT DOES! PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW AND HAVE THEM DO THE SAME! When I was a kid, I couldn't understand why Eisenhower was so popular. Maybe this will explain why. General Eisenhower Warned Us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be u ...
