Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, released a new video clip in honor of the Jewish state’s 68th birthday featuring dozens of ambassadors congratulating Israel on its Independence Day with the traditional greetings of “Yom Haatzmaut Sameach.”

“It is gratifying to see Israel’s friends standing by our side and wishing us a happy Independence Day,” Ambassador Danon said.  “Despite the hostility that we face from some in the parliament of nations, it’s clear that we have many friends in countries around the world.”

Ambassadors from six different continents participated in the video including representatives from the US, UK, Germany, Argentina, Australia, South Korea and Eritrea.
