On behalf of the African Christian Democratic Party, I wish to congratulate the State of Israel for achieving their 70th birthday with great success in spite of enemies who have continued to vow to annihilate them. This great achievement is a classic proof that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is well able to keep and protect His people.

The ACDP wishes to thank the democratic State of Israel for making the world a better place.

The exceptional creativity, innovations, and ingenuity of Israelis have been acknowledged by industry and world leaders time and time again. Israel is in the top 15 countries with the most number of Nobel Prize laureates per capita, a remarkable feat for such a small nation.

The compassion and love for life by Israelis is unparalleled in the Middle East. Israeli doctors treat and save the lives of Arabs from Palestinian Territories and Arab States in the Middle East on a daily basis. They do so because they have chosen to love even those who want to permanently remove them from the land that God gave to them as an inheritance forever.

Since its modern establishment in 1948, Israel has created a State with a vibrant economy that exports high tech innovations, vegetables, fruits, flowers, water and so much more to its neighbours and the world. Israel has caused the desert to bloom and serves as an example that nothing is impossible to them that believe.

We salute you, the people of Israel, for all your great achievements against all odds. Thank you for all that you have given the world. Thank you for showing us all that it is possible to love one’s enemies and to do good to those who hate you. May God continue to watch over you and protect you.
