Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebrating the life of the great American civil rights leader who was assassinated in April, 1968.
Ten days before his assassination, Dr. King said:
"Peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all our might to protect her right to exist, its territorial integrity and the right to use whatever sea lanes it needs. Israel is one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security, and that security must be a reality."
