Israel At 55

COVER STORY page 53

E

arly this week, there was guarded hope that peace talks could resume and
that Israel's 55th birthday could be celebrated joyously. Then another suicide
bomber struck Wednesday, killing three Israelis and injuring at least 55 other
people — reminding us that Palestinian militants still want the Jewish state
expunged from the Middle East, nothing less.
Whether new Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, whose own background
toward Jews brings his credibility into question, can deter such attacks remains to be seen.
One thing's for sure: Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel Independence Day, will come on Iyar
5 — this year on May 7.
Suggested names for the new state that would emerge from Palestine were many:
Zion, Ziona, Judaea, Ivriya, Herzliya. But the chosen name, Israel, honored the
Israelites, the name by which the Jewish people had been known since biblical times.
The War of Independence started May 14, 1948. It ended when a truce was agreed
to with Israel's Arab neighbors in early 1949. Israel was by then larger than the origi-
nal U.N. Partition Plan of 1947 had envisioned, but smaller than what was within
reach militarily. Israel's borders have continued to change.
Israel's population has grown from 600,000 in 1948 to 6.6 million today —5.3
million Jews and 1.3 million Arabs. Waves of
immigrants, especially from Eastern Europe,
0:414
the former Soviet Union, Argentina, Ethiopia
A..,
and Sephardi lands, have swelled the number.
Israel is a tapestry of military might, geo-
graphic beauty, historical treasure, farming
ingenuity, high tech leadership, cultural artistry
and spiritual diversity.
But it must stand sentry against radical forces
trying desperately to literally blow up any
chance of lasting peace in the region.
