When Israel left Europe after the great massacre, Judah became their holy one, Israel their dominion. It was then that the house of Jacob saw the sea flee, the Jordan turn back, the mountains dance like rams, the hills like lambs!

But not only had the sea fled before Israel. Many of the people of the land fled before the armies of Israel and became refugees abroad. Their brethren were defeated once and again, and those who remained behind in the land became like slaves under Israel. And the heart of some of the Israelites hardened and they say: This is the will of the God of Jacob.

And we, in this evening of the Festival of Freedom, say: our freedom is no freedom unless it is a freedom shared by the other people that dwells in the land of Zion. And Al-Quds became their holy one, Palestine their dominion. Let both peoples celebrate their liberty in their fatherland, and peace shall come onto the land.

– Elie Barnavi
