Israel is “Re-Born”

Today in History, May 14, 1948:

David Ben-Gurion, soon to be Israel’s first Premier, declares the birth of the first Jewish State in 2,000 years. As he finished his speech, the gunfire from the first Israeli-Arab War could be heard in the distance, as Egyptian forces began their attack.

The story continues…and many have changed sides or at least become more vocal in their anti-Israeli sentiments.

This discussion, and the bloodshed, has been ongoing for centuries.
