Happy Birthday Israel! (59 And Going)

Today (or rather tonight) is Israel's 59th birthday, and although it is often a solemn holiday, it is good to see Israel last another year on planet earth.

(Jewish Exponent) For much of the world, the name Israel is synonymous with conflict. But even though the nation must continue to fend off terrorism and fight for its rights, the true face of the Jewish state can be found in the hustle and bustle of ordinary people going about their lives. At work and at play, Israel remains a country of contrasts and stark beauty.

Another reason that Israel has to celebrate is the fact that its population has surpassed 7 million, with the largest increase coming naturally. (I think Ynet means via children instead of Aliyah).

Congrats Israel for enjoying another year of existence! I am looking forward to the next 50 million years. ;-)
