On this date in 1948, in Tel Aviv

David Ben-Gurion read the Israeli Declaration of Independence in public, inaugurating the State of Israel. In doing so, the best ally of the US and the first functioning democracy in the Middle East was created.

So on this Day of Independence, I say to all our friends in Israel: Mazel Tov and L'chaim! I shall drink to your continued existence this very evening.
