"Israel’s Independence Day celebrates a double miracle in the life of the Jewish people," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in a special Independence Day video address posted on the Youtube Website.

"The first miracle is the restoration of Jewish sovereignty. There is no other example that I know of in the history of nations, in which a scattered people, practically left for dead, has been able to reassert its national life. The second miracle, is what we’ve done since the establishment of the Jewish state," Netanyahu said."Israel is fast becoming a regional economic power and one of the world’s leading technological powers. All these gifts of creativity and genius in our people are bursting forth in every area: in science, in technology, in medicine, in the arts. And this great burst of creativity promises a great future for the Jewish people and for all of mankind."

"This double miracle is a testament to the life-force of the Jewish people. It’s a testament to the deep wells of hope we carry inside us and to the deepest connection and to the deepest connection that we have, both to our past and to our future. The two miracles that have already occurred – they’re only the beginning. If we stand together, if we remain committed to our common destiny, There’s nothing we cannot achieve," the prime minister declared.
