Seventy years ago ,long before I was born,the state of Israel was going through birth pain as the world’s nations voted on approving Israel as an official state alongside an Arab state which never came to be because the following day the surrounding Arab countries attempted to invade Israel and destroy it.A decision that is still the declared vision of most of the people and countries of the middle East.
Seventy years later and the United Nations had stuck a knife in Israel’s back again and again denouncing Israel’s human rights violations by states like Syria and Libya whose own people would drown at sea attempting to escape dire poverty extreme violence and war.
Israel is a relatively young nation but also the most ancient ,depending on how you look at it.
Thousands of years of exile ended for the Jews,people who would never quite achieve the goal of blending in..a jew would always be a jew, the world’s nations kept reminding them.
From my own personal point of view I share with Israel the declared goals of being myself no matter what,struggling for more confidence in myself ,and surrounding myself with good influences ,not forgetting what I am doing in this mad planet of contradictions ;love and hate,violence and democracy,tolerance and racism and not expecting help from others,always striving to stand on my own.
