ISRAEL AT 70.

13-05-2018

Monday May 14, 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the proclamation of the State od Israel. The creation of the state in 1948 was the response to the persecution of the Jews in Russia and Eastern Europe since 1881 and the Holocaust from 1933-1945 - Hitler's "final solution" of the Jewish problem in Europe. Israel was established during the war in which the Arab States had launched a war to drive all Jews into the sea. 

Sadly, little has changed to the better in these 70 years. As a consequence, the Palestinians will mark the day as their latest day of rage (see attachment).

It will also be the occasion for the United States of America to open its Embassy in Jerusalem. In 1948 America was (together with the Soviet Union) the first state to recognize the state of Israel. As I wrote earlier, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, is a condition for peace with Israel.

America has shown more courage and moral understanding than any European state..

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.
