When Moshiach comes...

If this was the extent of the joy at the partition, imagine "the Hora" when moshiach comes!

I rejoice with Israel!

The Philippine Ambassador to the United Nations at that time was my Uncle General Carlos P. Romulo who casted the vote in favor of Israel. He personally told me the story as history records it.
