EXCLUSIVE D-Day Photo: Jewish US Soldiers Pray @ Normandy

By Debbie Schlussel

Check out this photo of Jewish American soldiers who took part in and survived the invasion at Omaha Beach praying at Normandy just after the invasion:

Jewish Soldiers hold prayer services in an apple orchard in Normandy in 1944. The services were conducted by U.S. Army Jewish Chaplain Robert S. Marcus. The photo was taken by the U.S. Army Signal Corps.

Cool pics, Debbie. I love those old photos.

Great photos, Debbie. That said, I’m sure the Pentagon will shortly outlaw Jews for being a danger to other troops. Their presence will incite Muslims and gang bangers and Crips and Bloods and Puerto Ricans embedded and drive non-resident refugee sailors from Malaysia into a mad frenzy so it will just be better for everyone concerned if the US Armed Forces exclude Jews. You know .. for the children or some damn thing ..

What about all the other non-Jews that fought and died at Normandy…why don’t you give them any sort of special consideration?
