Happy Yom Ha'atzmaut

The celebration of Israel's independence begins tonight at sundown. 63 years.  We have a lot to be grateful for.  Most of us don't know a world without a Jewish State.  In spite of horrible opposition and existential threats, Israel has built a country that contributes to the world in science, technology and art.  It has a bustling economy and a high quality of life according to every measurement.

Israel does not have an official religion, but it does have a Jewish majority.

There are 47 states where Muslims are a majority.  23 of them are either Islamic states or Islam is the state religion.  Over 100 states where Christians are the majoriy, in 13 it is the official religion.  There are 3 states where Buddhism is the official religion.

There is only 1 Jewish State.
Elder of Ziyon has created a series of posters "This is Zionism" to honor Israel's Independence.  They are all wonderful.  Here are 2 of them:

Go and see all of them.  Elder also created the Apartheid Posters I used in the Apartheid Canard post.
