“it would only be a gift of words”

I woke up at 5 Am to refresh my mind with history notes on the Middle East. Reading about how Israel persevered to rise in that hostile region is quite intriguing. The words of Chaim Azriel Weizmann, a Zionist leader and Israeli statesman, caught my attention:

“A state cannot be created by decree, but by the forces of a people and in the course of generations. Even if all the governments of the world gave us a country, it would only be a gift of words. But if the Jewish people will go build Palestine, the Jewish State will become a reality—a fact.”

1948 came and we know how determination, action, and perseverence gave birth to Israel. Faith without works is dead. Faith with works manifests Life!
