Let's improve Yom Hazikaron

I'm fine with the idea behind Yom HaZikaron but I think there are some design flaws in how it's commemorated.

PROBLEM #1: The rituals are all about Jews in a country that is 25% gentile

CHALLENGE #1: Design a Yom HaZikaron ritual that includes all Israeli citizens.

PROBLEM #2: Religious Jews complain that the day is marked with rites such as the siren and the reading of names that are not Jewish in character and origin.

CHALLENGE #2: Design a national Yom HaZikaron ritual that is fully and completely based on precedents found in classic Orthodox Jewish sources.
