I have just been scrolling through my google plus and saw the announcements and comments about Israel being an independant state for 64 yrs now.
In the midst of such turmoil that exists in the Middle East one has to say that is quite an achievement. However there are many conflicting thoughts on the State of Israel, but for me whether the Israelis are Jewish, Arabic,or Christian I wish them and their neighbours in the Palestinian Territories one day at least of Peace.
Thanks for the reminder! As a stamp collector having the first issues of Israel, I salute your freedom!
