Moscow. April 19. INTERFAX – the President of the Federation of Jewish communities of Russia Alexander Boroda has congratulated with the 70th anniversary of Israel and noted that attempts to demonize this state more often meet resistance.
“Unfortunately, until now there are people seeking to demonize Israel, often using a dark anti-Semitic libels of the past. However, in recent years, this process, thank God, increasingly meets resistance,” said a Jewish leader on Thursday in his congratulatory message.
In his opinion, the creation of the state of Israel 70 years ago was not only a political act, but also an example of the implementation of Supreme justice in relation to the whole nation.
“The Jewish people after almost two thousand years in exile and numerous persecutions finally got the opportunity to create their own state on their land, the land described in the Torah, the land where lived his greatest heroes and sages in Eretz Yisrael,” writes the Rabbi.
A. Beard believes that in the past 70 years Israel has more than proved its viability, and “today the whole world knows that Israel is a strong army, causing the defeat of the vastly superior armies of the enemy, that in this country, much of which is located in the desert, successfully thriving agriculture, and the development of science has made Israel a world center of scientific-technical progress”.
“In addition, Israel has become the region’s only democratic and tolerant country where representatives of all religions have unfettered access to their Holy sites, and all previously existing on this account the restrictions were lifted,” – said Mr. Beard.
The President of the FJC noted “the excellent diplomatic relations between Russia and Israel, which achieved the leadership of the two countries in recent years in various spheres – in politics, business, education, culture, medicine, agriculture and many others.”
“We hope that the friendship between the countries will only grow stronger, and we are the part of the FJC promise to continue to contribute to this beneficial process,” concluded the Rabbi.
