Israel 1951 (courtesy of Air France)

I caught this on  The blog is one I read daily, but the video is priceless.  It comes from a time when Israel was surrounded by enemies and life was harsh.  What is interesting is that there is no "internal" conflict.  Everywhere, Jews, Druze, Christians and Arabs work together to build the land.  It is sad that we have lost this spirit of cooperation.  The Christians are almost gone from the West Bank and remain and very small percentage of Israel proper.

If you listen carefully, you can tell where the boarder is.  Bethlehem is referenced as a small town in the distance that cannot be visited because it is in Jordan.

Watch this with you family on Yom Haatzmaut.  What a picture it paints!
