Jerusalem, May 14 – The international news media has largely been silent about the primary significance of May 14. Only Christian Collins, the campaign manager of United States Congressman Kevin Brady (R-The Woodlands), has openly stated the importance of this day.
Instead, the media from CNN, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Internet news agglomerators, and even the lowly Courier blog have ignored the significance of May 14, 2018. They’ve focused on United States President Donald Trump’s decision to move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. They’ve focused on the violent demonstrations by radicals in the Gaza Strip. They’ve focused on criticizing the Israeli military for trying to keep some semblance of peace while dignitaries from all of the world are in Jerusalem for the opening of the new American Embassy.
As only Collins seems willing to note, however, May 14, 2018, is the 70th Birthday of the Nation of Israel, the only consistently stable ally of the United States in the entire Middle East. On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Israeli Agency under the British Mandate after World War II, declared “the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz-Israel, to be known as the State of Israel.”
Since that time, Israel’s existence has constantly suffered attacks from its neighbors. Since that time, the international news media has consistently attacked Israel’s right to exist and attempted to demonize the tiny nation which stands out in the Middle East as a beacon of freedom and sanctuary from euthanasia and discrimination.
Collins said, “It’s fitting that we celebrate the opening of the American Embassy in Jerusalem on Israel’s 70th birthday.”
