Happy 59th Birthday Israel!
This is the anniversary of the creation of the glorious state of Israel! That was truly a happy day--and it remains so. There are many of us Christians who value Israel as much as we do the United States. We do this, not only because it is right and true, but because we recognize that Israel is a part of us, a part of our religion, a part of our people, a part of our creed.
Thus, we put away our tears that we had no representative at Jerusalem Day festivities; if our government wishes to join with the EU (and muslim entities) we can only tell them that they are wrong and hope, one day, that doing good triumphs playing petty politics.
We will go around with a smile on our face and joy in our heart that Israel was created and still exists--and we will know, with that same heart, that we will do anything to defend Israel and ensure her continuance. Anything--for it is our continuing, too.
