Due to an unforeseen wrong move of which made my back start to hurt like the dickens, yesterdays answer is late.
The answer is this or the best that I can find without having to sit here and type out the whole thing...
A while ago, at the West Point Academy's Jewish Chapel, there was a display about Hyam Salomon and the Revolutionary War. He died penniless, having used all his resources to aid the newly formed and poorly supplied American Continental Army.
This is a wonderful story sent to me by a lawyer friend that shares my interest in history. I hope you will find it of interest to you:
General Washington's financial advisor and assistant was a Jewish man by the name of Hyam Salomon. During the cold winter months at Valley Forge when American soldiers were freezing and running out of food, it was Hyam who marshaled all the Jews in America and Europe to provide money in relief aid to these stranded American troops and turned the course of history. Without this help, Washington's Continental Army, and the fate of the American Colonies would have perished before they could have defeated the British.
If you take a one dollar bill out of your pocket and look at the back at the Eagle, the stars above the Eagle's head are in the six point Star of David to honor Jews. If you turn the Eagle upside down you will see a configuration in the likeness of a Menorah....both at the insistence of George Washington who said we should never forget the Jewish people and what they have done in the interest of America.
Of course there are those who don't believe this. However the truth of the matter is without the help of Mr. Salomon and other Jews we won't not have a country.
Wouldn't it be nice if someone would ask Mr. Obama if he know the answer. And also ask just how many Muslims have donated money that wasn't asked to be repaid in the defense of our country. AND NO I'm not against Muslims as a whole. Like with any man made religion and I do mean RELIGION there are those who are fanatic's.
