Countdown to Israeli Independence Day!

In one more week we’ll all be celebrating Israeli Independence Day!  Sixty-six 66 years since David Ben-Gurion took on the world and declared that enough was enough.  The Jewish State, aka the State of Israel was declared!

The odds were completely against us, and the world sat by watching, expecting to see a simple bloody rout. There was no way that a bunch of poor Jewish farmers, beggars and undernourished survivors of Hitler’s concentration camps could defeat the Arabs who had the de facto backing of Great Britain and other countries.

Ben-Gurion didn’t even have a united Jewish army to fight with him. Actually, that was mostly his fault. He was so against the Etzel and Lechi during the latter years of the British Mandate that he even cooperated with the British by informing against them in a period known as the sezon, The Hunting Season.  He continued with his extreme hatred of those Jews who didn’t support him politically by tricking the Etzel, led by Menachem Begin, and attacking the Altalena which resulted in the death of Jewish patriots and the destruction of valuable weapons which had been brought to liberate Jerusalem from the Arabs.

It wasn’t only the Revisionists, Jabotinsky followers, members of Etzel and Lechi that Ben-Gurion tried to defeat, he also did everything he could to brainwash, deprogram religious North-African Jews from strictly observing Judaism. Children were sent to secular boarding schools to be “educated” and turned into Leftist, secular Israelis aka modern Jews.

Honestly, when I began this post, I didn’t plan on rehashing the terrible side of early Israeli history. But in order to understand today’s State of Israel we must remember the awful, disgraceful side, too.

When we wonder why the Israeli Left, and even Center, are so rabidly anti-Jewish Life in Judea and Samaria, and we wonder why Shabbak, Israel’s “secret police” can be so cruel to fellow Jews instead of concentrating on our real enemies, and we wonder how the Israeli Judicial System can judge Patriotic Jews so unfairly, we just have to think of David Ben-Gurion.

They are the spiritual, political, immoral heirs of David Ben-Gurion.

What’s the great irony here in Israel sixty-six years later? The descendants of Ben-Gurion and his followers are less interested in Israel than the descendants of those he tried so hard to destroy.

Considering all of the civil war, a battle for Jewish souls going on during the War for Israeli Independence and the early years of the state, it’s even more amazing that G-d allowed the state to survive and thrive.

We wouldn’t have a State of Israel if G-d hadn’t supported us. There’s no rational way to describe our victories in 1948, 1967 and 1973.

That’s why it is so important to thank G-d with Prayers including the Hallel on Israeli Independence Day!

Yes, we still have a long way to go, but we won’t succeed without the Help of the Almighty!
