Happy Birthday, Israel!

It was 70 years ago, according to the Hebrew calendar, that the Jewish state of Israel declared its independence. Eleven minutes after David Ben-Gurion, the founder of the modern state of Israel, made the declaration public, the United States became the first nation to recognize Israel’s rebirth.

Earlier today, we joined thousands of Israelis in celebrating this significant milestone as we kicked off a 10-day tour of the Holy Land. We started our day with a rare briefing and tour of one of Israel’s strategic air bases as citizens across the state took in military air shows and public displays of Israel’s military hardware.

For more, tune into “Washington Watch,” as former Rep. Michele Bachmann, Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, and former Ambassador Ken Blackwell join me from Israel to discuss the significance of this 70th celebration.
