The friendship between your great Republic, vast in area & population, rich in resources & experience, and the very young & infinitely smaller Democracy which I represent is rooted deep in the common spiritual heritage. Our war of Independence, fought after 6 millions of our people have been exterminated by the Nazis, proves once again that the cause of justice painfully pursued must triumph in the end. In our revival we have been inspired by the message of our bible and by the traditions of our ancient history which elevates the dignity of man & the principal of justice which commands us to love our neighbor.
