Happy Birthday Israel

Yom Atzmaut Sameach! Happy Independence Day, Israel!

For one day, forget about all the crap in this country. Focus on the positive. We're a strong country whose existence is not threatened anymore. We are a state with some of the best minds the world has ever seen in the fields of economics and technology (less so in the field of politics and diplomacy). We have some of the world's best authors - Amos Oz, A. B. Yehoshua, David Grossman and Eli Amir, just to name a few. Despite being a small country, we have lots of different landscapes - from the desert in the south to the green fields of the north. The people may not have British manners, but they're extremely friendly, always (well, usually) willing to help out a stranger on the street.

There's more good stuff, but I don't want to overdose on the patriotism.



  1. Angles (like) of Israel

    Will the world remember the angels?

    http://clarityandresolve.com/archives/2006/05/am_yisrael_chai_1.php 'History will remember that Israelis never stopped working for peace even as their enemies never stopped working against it'.

    That's clarity on Israel's resolve.

    I hope, the world will remember the extra cheek Israel always managed to turn, it's enormous sacrifice of lives and vital (defense buffer zone) land give away [for any slight hope for peace] to an enemy that sacrifices as much... towards death.

    I hope the world will remember how much heroic Israel was in escaping the traps by Arab terrorist parents to kill their kids.

    I hope the world will remember how the international community was so unfair to Israel.

    I hope the world will remember how Israelis had more feelings for it's enemies' children than their own parents had for them.

    I hope that the world will remember how much effort Israel has put into the Arab refugees that the Arab leaders were responsible for.

    I hope that the world will remember the immense sacrifice Israelis 'retunees' have made for the Arab newcomers...

    I hope that the world will remember how Arabs, men like women lived so freely, so nicely in Israel's democracy (often with preferred treatment), incomparable with any Arab Muslim country with it's totalitarian & apartheid regimes.

    I hope that the world will remember how Israeli victims of a suffocating Arab racist boycott for over 50 years have managed to arrive so high in world's rank of all walks of life.

    I hope that the world will remember how peace loving beautiful Israel stands so super humanely tall with it's up high ultra morality in face of the lowest of the lowest animalistic predators .

    Heart warming olive branch VS loathsome lynch, anyone?

    Tireless peace groups VS Relentless pro-genocide cult, anyone?

    Worried for rights of the heartless, anyone?

    Compassionate for the cruel, anyone?

    Activists saturated with streaming tears for enemies' plight VS , despicable grins, sick dancers rejoice in the streets towards bloodshed, towards victims' pain & suffering, anyone?

  2. I hope to visit one day.

    By the way, British manners aren't all they used to be!

  3. British manners? A thing of the past (broadly speaking), I'm afraid... Rudeness is constantly on the rise.
