The 70th Anniversary of the Exodus 1947 ship

Remembrance of key events in the modern history of Israel is a powerful way to preserve their significance. The “Exodus 1947” ship arrived in Palestine in July 1947 with 4500 hopeful new immigrants only to be intercepted by the British Navy. Most were turned back to Germany. It was a tragic event that added strength to the longing for and creation of the new State of Israel on May 14th 1948. This event was remembered by the unveiling of a bronze memorial to the ‘Exodus 47″‘ immigrant ship in Haifa harbour 70 year later. This touching event was attended by survivors of the ship now in their late 70’s to early 90’s.

Every blessing: Meridel Rawlings Canada May Propose Defining Boycott of Israel a ‘Hate Crime’ May 11, 2015 The pro-Israel Canadian government may be planning to include boycotts of Israel as a hate crime, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reported Monday.

Gone were the accusations that Israel spied on the negotiations with Iran and gave the information to the enemy – U.S. Congress.
