The Independence In-waiting!
by Steven Shamrak.
In May 1948 Jews traumatised by the Holocaust, in order to create their homeland, were ready to accept even 10% of the original Palestinian Mandate, which was designated for the Jewish state. Arabs were not willing to let Jews have even those pitiful crumbs!
The Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel. May 14,1948.
ERETZ-ISRAEL (the Land of Israel - Palestine) was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped. Here they first attained statehood, created cultural values of national and universal significance and gave to the world the eternal Book of Books...
This right was recognized in the Balfour Declaration of the 2nd November, 1917, and re-affirmed in the Mandate of the League of Nations which, in particular, gave international sanction to the historic connection between the Jewish people and Eretz-Israel and the right of the Jewish people to rebuild its National Home... This right is the natural right of the Jewish people to be masters of their own fate, like all other nations, in their own sovereign State... (We are, 58 years later, still not masters of our own fate in our own country. When is the right time?)
WE APPEAL to the United Nations to assist the Jewish people in the building-up of its State and to receive the State of Israel into the community of nations. (This has never happened! Israel is still being discriminated against by the United Nations, the International Red Cross and other International thugs!)
WE APPEAL - in the very midst of the onslaught launched against us now for months - to the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to preserve peace and participate in the up building of the State on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its provisional and permanent institutions. (Arabs did not accept or appreciate the hand of friendship from Jews. They have never stopped the terror onslaught! They, not just their leaders, still do not accept the independent Jewish state. The time has come to let them go and rid ourselves of them!)
