No longer they—but we.
This blessed land offers its love.
The love of many millions,
Now two,
Now six.
Its memories are true.
"How goodly are thy tents,
O Jacob, Thy dwelling places,
O Israel."

And thus in spite of history—
And thus because of history
Dignity is reborn.
An Israeli is born.

we can arrange to show it best, and we've got more will
ter and spring tours to Israel than anybody. We'd love
to soy "Shalom." So see your travel agents —
