On this 72nd Independence Day (4/29/2020), Israel has become a mature, vibrant, and most successful nation. Called the Start-Up Nation, with Israel’s high-tech sector, its medical breakthroughs, agricultural marvels, and humanitarian outreach have become the envy of the world. Once isolated as a result of the Arab Economic boycott, Israel today works with many of those moderate Arab states who seek Israeli technology, albeit, trade is done “under the table.” Israelis still complain on Friday night get-together’s about bureaucracy, and various inefficiencies, justified or not. Most Israelis, however, are immensely proud of their country and its accomplishments.
