A Jewish State is Reborn
Two Thousand Years of Struggle
Free Citizens Live Again in Palestine
Since the first day radio waves began to carry messages
over the air and for many days to come, there has not been and there
will not be made an announcement as will come today.
A homeless nation, a sufferer among the peoples of the
earth, a living reproach to humanity, a victor over 2,000 years
persecution, is no longer homeless.
The Sabbath candles kindled tonight in Palestine will
still be burning when the Jewish State is born.
All who believe in Destiny and Providence ought to say
a prayer of thanksgiving. The President of the United States should
lead this nation in prayer. Is not the redemption of Israel a divine
promise, and a fulfillment of a covenant, and a benediction for all
Are not the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Gospels, the
Moslem Koran, full of prophecies of this day?
The Jewish State is reborn and the most ancient nation
on earth is redeemed. O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest,
and not comforted... in righteousness shalt thou be established...
for the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness
shall not depart form thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace
be removed, saith the Lord that has mercy on thee... whosoever shall
gather together against thee shall fall. (Isaiah, Chapter 54.)
