It is exciting to see how our current administration is recognizing the celebration of Israel’s Independence as a Jewish State during the Six Day War. Some may not be familiar with what took place during this moment in history. Dennis Prager does an outstanding job of doing a brief overlook of what transpired, resulting in Israel’s independence. At the time, Egypt’s leader, Gamal Abdel Nasser, declared his plans to destroy Israel. As Prager explains, “He placed Egyptian troops on Israel’s border, and armies of surrounding Arab countries were also mobilized to attack. However, Israel preemptively attacked Egypt and Syria. Israel did not attack Jordan and begged Jordan’s king to not join the war.” When the king in fact joined, and the other armies attacked Israel, Israel was forced to respond. “Only because of that, did Israel take control of Jordanian land, specifically, the West Bank of the Jordan River.” This is something that not many are aware of. The land of Egypt and Jordan that we see today was originally Israel’s land.
Today, when one thinks of the city of Jerusalem, it is with a modern perspective of how things look today. But before 1967, the Jewish people were not able to go to certain places as they are today. Can you imagine being present during the Six Day War and witnessing the City of Jerusalem being liberated? Israel Defense Forces chronicle this significant moment in history. With the squelches of radio talk being heard, and advancement of Israeli troops being seen through the Old City, this moment in history comes alive. It’s interesting as we look upon ever mile upon the Globe, the small sliver of land that gains the most attention, is the city of Jerusalem. Why is there so much controversy over this single city? Because it’s God’s city.
As the State of Israel celebrates this exciting moment, the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat, also speaks about this momentous occasion. “Since reuniting Jerusalem 50 years ago, Israel has celebrated the rich diversity of our system. We have maintained freedom of religion, movement and expression for all of our cities resolutions. These values are the core of Israel’s democracy. They’re values that are the basis of our enduring bond with our strongest ally, the United States.”
This May is such a significant moment in the Earth. Something is taking place all over the world. When God things take place, people held in strongholds tend to get upset. The reason that Jerusalemis in Israel now, is because they got it back during the Six Day War. As Israel celebrated in 1967, they celebrate again today, and we celebrate alongside them. It is also a significant occasion that President Trump will be in Israel on the eve of Jerusalem Day during his visit on May 22-23. See the full story of what is taking place in Israel as many celebrate the history of Israel’s birth, and so much more.
