Israeli Declaration of Independence, 1948

After WWII ended, the new nation of Israel was announced by their Declaration of Independence.

They hoped for UN recognition and peace with surrounding nations.

We have included a copy of the Declaration as well as questions and answers.

This might be an interesting comparison with other historical declarations.
