Happy New Year, from Israel’s “Thin Green Line”

The “thin blue line”, in American discourse, typically refers to the police who stand between an ordered society and potential violence and chaos. 

For citizens of Israel, it’s simply impossible not to be thankful for the thousands of brave men and women, in what is truly a citizens’ army, who bravely and selflessly protect the nation from harm.

There is rarely a day which goes when I don’t fully appreciate how precious it is to be a citizen of the first sovereign Jewish state in over 2000 years.

Here’s a New Year greeting from those who make the precious gift of Jewish self-determination a continuing reality.
