Odd Way of Honoring Yom Kippur

Reader comment on item: Non-Muslims Who Fast for Ramadan
in response to reader comment: Islam and Yum Kippur

(My apologies for slightly misplacing my post, as it was meant as a response to this one. Please feel free to remove the misplaced version.)

Indeed, Yom Kippur, the single holiest DAY in Judaism was honoured and revered rather oddly in 1973, when it was the day chosen to launch a surprise attack to annihilate the Jewish State.

How to approriately respond to such an honour?

Should the IAF perhaps "honour" Rammadan in like fashion, by launching day after day of senseless attacks on its Arab neighbours by day, only to take a break from the attacks come sunset?

On behalf of Jews worldwide, I would sincerely request that Muslims refrain from bestowing such a tremendous "honour" upon our homeland, in "honour" of future Yom Kippurs, days that are apparently so revered in Islam.

Thanks, but a card wll do just fine.
