Before 1948, Jews have no country of their own and Israel did not exist since the Romans invaded the land in 70AD were the Jews finally expelled in their own land. Jews take refuge in various countries across the globe. Philippine was one of the chosen few countries to accept Jewish refugee and provided area to continue with their lives. With their unique bond and religious ties, the Jews continue with their communication with the remains of their race no matter where they are.
When the world start to recognized Israel’s existence on 1948 through
United Nation, Philippine President then (Manuel Roxas) played a crucial role by instructing Carlos P. Romulo (Philippine Representative to the U.N.) to vote in favor of the independence of Israel inspite of pressures from many nations as many were against it during that time. This I believed was written in Israel’s historical books. That vote encourages other voting countries to not be afraid and use their concience for a fair vote. It resulted to a
majority vote in favor of Israel and it became the start of what Israel has become and accomplished till to this day.
Israel has advance in many aspects since 1948. Hope someday, Philippines will attain even some of the development Israel has accomplished. Filipinos look forward to what God has promised Abraham…
“…I will bless those who will bless you
and I will curse those who will curse you.“
(hope I said it right)
