Old City of Jerusalem on Israel's Independence Day, May 9, 2011. Israelis are celebrating the 63rd. birthday of the birth of the Jewish state.


I am confused who did they gain Independence from? I was under the impression Israel was created, sortta like paper money?

and does anyone have any idea as to what the inflatable Hammers represent?


looks like the media trying to make Israel seem like the U.S. not really sure what to think of this article it is all pretty vague and gives no history of the Israeli independence? seems they should have stuck with the title of birthday?

sadly the turnout didn't seem to large. most of the pics were of the same group of people and some orthodox jews out shopping just passing by.

Yom Ha'atzmaut - commemorates Israel's declaration of Independence in 1948 - Wiki

and isn't it technically the resurrection of the Israeli state? I mean it wasn't born 63 years ago.. it was born a long long time ago.. right?

I dont know what to say about them.. but as an american, they have the right to celebrate, I suppose.

though, it could also be a usurpation

independence from rock throwing, starving, medical aid needing people who are suffering more and more each day?

What a great thing to have a holiday for.

It's independence from world wide persecution for eons, a celebration of remaining intact despite Biblical odds on their destruction from outside forces, and the knowledge that one's people and culture can survive despite the intentional elimination of their people in WWII.

It's independence from a biased leftist media that persecutes those that protect themselves, and are the only Democratic, creative power in the Middle East.

It's the knowledge that sometimes right does win, and those that are in the wrong lose. Despite mental midgets that celebrate every wrong Israel does (while ignoring the atrocities of their barbaric neighbours), Israel marches on!

That, my friends, is what they are celebrating!

What a joke. They are by far the worst excuse for a "Nation" that I have ever seen.
They are on stolen land, period.
If some people need something to compare their so called re-existence by then look at it this way.

Lets say that you live in a little cul de sac and the people from surrounding suburbs have a little "war"
After the war, the leaders of the ones involved in the war decide that a specific race need their own little sub-divide and choose YOUR cul de sac for their new "home"
If youre in violation of some THING that was drawn up, which you had no say so what so ever, when it was drawn up, then if you resist, youre a racist.
When other sub divisions come to your aid a couple of decades later, they are beaten, with the help of the ones that created this little agreement, and those nations are labeled racist extremists.

Maybe that analogy can help some people understand what has happened to Palestine and Lebanon. If not, i can try a Football analogy

So kinda like the US where their perpetrated a war and stole huge areas of Mexico (parts of Texas, New Mexico and Cali) based on a false premise, lies and killing? In the case of the US of course, there was no Belfour declaration,and the land wasn't in control of another power that had the right to decide the future of the area. I presume from your post you are in favour of suicide bombings in Star Bucks in San Diego by dis-grunted Mexicans?

I didnt realize this thread was also having a conversation about the Mexican/USA wars?
Im sure there is one though, so take your whining to that thread.

Good response! Your counter arguments are impressive!

So, Israel is bad (cause you socialist professor told you so!), and they are "unique" in their situation (cause, no other country has ever had a grievance about who was their first). Israel is held to a special level of expectation, while other countries are not.

I didnt have a "socialist professor"?? since I have never attended college.
But from what I have read over the past several years, there are very few Universities that will not fire a professor for saying even one negative thing about Israel.
IF any are ever brave enough to do so, they would be labeled anti-semite, fired and their careers ruined.

For the record, the country of Mexico is and has been for years, one of the most corrupt Governments in history.

Not sure what the corruption of the present government in Mexico has to do with the US stealing land, killing people, and starting fake wars, but to each his own.

As for Universities, are you serious? Every year in Canada, a band of lemming idiots celebrates "Israel Apartheid week".The Prime Minister of Israel was not allowed to speak in Montreal after some "peace loving" objectors stormed the stage, smashed things, and rioted. And, professors routinely have some sort of garbage going around about "boycotting Israel" (Syria, Libya, Saudi Arabia, and Iran are okay though).

This is nothing more than parrots following their hero's and not having the ability to think for themselves.

And I am not sure what the HELL the past Mexican/US land issues have to do with a thread about Israel.
Like i said, take your whine to the appropriate thread.

I really didn't expect you to make the connection. Israel is no worse than any other country, and in some cases, not as guilty. If you look at their history, however, they are held to some sort of impossible standard that other countries are not held to. So, should they be proud and celebrate? I'd say so.

Preach on brother, couldn't be more right if you tried. I'm tired of reading the "Israel bad" comments on ATS that seem to blame the Jews and Israelis for everything. Probably say the Holocaust was the fault of them too unless people are Holocaust deniers too.

the way Israel acts toward their neighbors they don't show any moral standard.

there is no accountability for their terrorism.. and comparing other countries wrong doings does not justify their horrible actions.
