The State of Israel celebrated its 62nd birth anniversary on April 21, 2010.

It’s a joyous occasion and a great moment in history. Israel is a sovereign state with a democratic system.

The twentieth century holocaust, a horrendous crime against humanity led to the creation of the Israeli state.

Israel is an economic partner and a strategic ally of the United States as well as many nations in Europe and other parts of the world.

Israel’s relationship in the Arab world has been understandably restricted to the regions.

Israel’s cordial relationship with Egypt and Jordan are the result of peace treaty and diplomacy between them for a long time.

Similarly, Israel should forge the peace process by completely freezing the Jewish settlements in West Bank and East Jerusalem and,

Move forward with the negotiations on the two state agreements to help their neighbor, Palestinians secure an independent Palestine.

Israel has a unique opportunity to be the beacon of light in securing freedom and democracy in the Middle East by paving the way for Palestine.

That way Israel would be remembered in history for the peace establishment.

Congratulations! To Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the people of Israel for their accomplishments and contributions towards various progress in Israel and the rest of the world.

Happy 62nd anniversary to the State of Israel.

Thank you.
