Arab-Israeli Journalist Lucy Aharish Lighting Torch at Independence Day Ceremony

I am Lucy Aharish Daughter of Salwa and Maaruf Sister of Saida and Suzanne I am honored to light from this torch of the 67th Independence Day of the State of Israel For all human beings wherever they may be who have not lost hope for peace and for the children, full of innocence, who live on this Earth. for whom we have continually promised a better future For those who are no longer with us and who fell victim to baseless hatred at the hands of those who forgot that we are all born in the image of one god. For the Mizrahim and the Ashkenazim the religious and the secular The Arabs and the Jews For the people of this land who remind us that we don’t have another country For us, the Israelis and all human beings and for the glory of the State of Israel
