On this auspicious occasion of Israel’s 76th Day of Independence, it is with profound respect and warm congratulations that we extend our heartfelt wishes to the people of Israel. This anniversary serves as a poignant reminder of the remarkable journey undertaken by the nation since its inception, embodying the resilience, determination and spirit of its people.

The existence of Israel holds profound significance, not only for the Jewish community but for the entire world. It stands as a beacon of hope and perseverance, a testament to the indomitable human spirit and the pursuit of self-determination. The establishment of Israel represents the realization of a long-held dream, a sanctuary for a people who have endured centuries of persecution, displacement, and hardship.

Moreover, Israel’s right to exist is firmly rooted in historical and international law, reaffirmed by numerous resolutions and agreements. Its establishment was a pivotal moment in the quest for justice and equality, providing a homeland for a people whose historical ties to the land are deeply entrenched.

In reflecting on the words of Isaiah 41:8-14, we find resonance with Israel’s journey. Like Jacob, chosen and called from the ends of the earth, Israel has been guided by a steadfast faith and an unwavering commitment to its identity and heritage. Through trials and tribulations, it has stood firm, supported by the assurance that it is not alone.

As we celebrate Israel’s Independence Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to supporting its prosperity, security and well-being. Let us stand united in the pursuit of peace and understanding, recognizing that the future holds boundless opportunities for cooperation and coexistence.

In conclusion, may this milestone serve as a moment of reflection and gratitude, honouring the past, embracing the present, and looking forward to a future filled with promise and possibility. Mazal tov, Israel, on this joyous occasion. May your light continue to shine brightly for generations to come.
