Yom Huledet Sameyach

Happy Birthday Israel.  I wasn't sure how i was going to weigh-in.  I have been disappointed of late with Israel's policies, such as the recent settlement legalization of settlements.  But I am reading a great book on the 14th century by Barbara Tuchman called "A Distant Mirror," and while reading about the persecution and pogroms the Jews faced for "causing the Plague" and was reminded of the historical need and desire to have our own country.

But just as The Palestine Post proclaimed the State of Israel'sbirth, so too do I long to see The Jerusalem Post proclaiming that the State of Palestine is born.  Two states for two people.  It was right 64 years ago, it is right today.
