«In Israel, in order to be a realist you must believe in miracles», said David Ben-Gurion, who read the Declaration of Independence of the State of Israel on the 5th day of Iyar 1948. The miracle that has come true is 72 years old today.
«The Israelis had to defend their independence the very next day after signing of the Declaration, when five countries at once declared war on the newly born state. The struggle for independence has not stopped for a minute since then. It is going on today. Several generations of the native-born Israelis have already grown up, for whom their own fate and the fate of their homeland is an organic whole. The ability of the Israelis to organize themselves and unite in the face of a common threat has already become a familiar example and serves as a model for those who cherish their home», wrote Boris Lozhkin on Facebook.
All Israelis are realists because they are dreamers. Dreaming of peace for their own home, they do everything to make it a reality.
Happy Independence Day, Israel! Peace and prosperity!
