Happy Independence Day, Israel

Today is the 62nd anniversary of Israel's birth as a nation, according to the Hebrew calendar (May 14th is the Gregorian/western date).

For those of you who follow me on
Twitter, you will know that I have been reading A Place Among the Nations: Israel and the World, by current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Even though the book was written in 1993, it is a fascinating read on the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Reading this book has reinforced my support for the nation of Israel.

I hope you will join me in wishing Israel a happy birthday.
