That’s when Israel turns 62.
You could spend a lot of quality time reading long and very worthy articles describing what Israel represents. How Israel was reborn in modern time on the land from which its people were expelled but which has always been the Jewish people’s spiritual, religious, ethnic and moral home. You can read about what the world’s sole Jewish nation has achieved over these past 62 years despite the constant – and continuing – attacks by hostile Arab neighbours and a largely intransigent Muslim world. You can read about the revival of anti-Semitism that is still so much a part of the make-up of politicians and clergymen in many parts of the world, and the Christian Church’s resurgent demands for a boycott of the Jewish state, particularly by the Church of Sweden – the shadow of the Inquisition looms ever darker.
Or, alternatively, you can spend two minutes and thirty-eight seconds (2.38) watching a film that says it all.
Neatly, concisely, objectively and elegantly.
Hat tip to blog Aletheia for this excellent short film, in this version subtitled in Swedish. Swedes perhaps more than any other people on this planet need to know the truth about Israel.
Here in Sweden, they won’t hear it from media suppliers or newspapers such as Aftonbladet or politicians such as Foreign Minister Carl Bildt. I know – I live in Sweden.
