68 Years Ago Pres. Truman Recognized Israel Over State Dept. Objections (Would Obama Have Done Same Thing?)

"Sixty-eight years ago tonight (by the Hebrew calendar) the world saw a real miracle from God. After a wait of almost 2,000 years, there Jewish people once again had a nation-state, as Israel declaring her independence.
"The Jewish State’s existence would have been very short lived were it not for the strong will of President Harry S Truman, who became the new State’s first international supporter over the objections of his very popular and powerful Secretary of State George Marshall.  The president didn’t make his decision because of politics but like so much of what Truman did he supported Israel because he thought it was the right thing to do. Of course some attributed Truman’s stance to somethingisrael_beginselse. When Israel’s Chief Rabbi, Isaac Herzog, visited the White House after Israel declared her independence he told Truman, “God put you in your mother’s womb so that you would be the instrument to bring the rebirth of Israel after 2000 years.”
"Based on the past seven years it is reasonable to believe that if Barack Obama was president 68 years ago, Israel may very well have been cast aside in deference to the King of Saudi Arabia and the Arab League. He most probably would have tried to negate the UN Partition Plan, as most in the State Department recommended in 1948, because President Obama and the Democratic Party are reluctant supporters of Israel who believe the United States should lead from behind. That wasn’t Harry Truman’s style.

“What I am trying to do is make the whole world safe for Jews,” Harry Truman wrote as he agonized over his decision to recognize a Jewish state in Palestine." . . .
