By every indication, Israel and the Jewish People should have been extinguished from the world stage more than 2500 years ago. In every generation and in every location, Jews have prayed for thousands of years, “Enemies seek to destroy us and God has saved us.”

The very existence of the State of Israel — warts and all — is as miraculous as the survival of one of the oldest peoples on Earth in the face of implacable enemies.

Today, on the Inside Scoop, the story of Jewish renewal and rebirth in their Judean homeland (from which they were named) in the face of fierce odds. Like the Arabs of Arabia, the Indians of India, and virtually all national, anti-colonial movements, Israel was born in fierce bloodshed, fighting simultaneously the British and the Arabs.

For a fascinating account of Israel at age 10, check out this interview between Mike Wallace and Abba Eban, Israel’s ambassador to the United States 50 years ago. Try to ignore the cigarette commercials. :-)

Despite the squeaker in Indiana last night, it’s over for Hillary.

Also the memory of Mildred Loving, who took on Virginia’s law against interracial marriages in 1967. Before she died, Loving endorsed the equal right of gay people to marry as well.
