Transcript Israel at Fifty The Golden Years Jesse At the age of 50 most people feel secure in their life and look forward to their "golden years," but for Israel turning 50 was nothing but a contradiction. Israel has never been more prosperous and more secure, but at the same time more divided and uncertain about its fate. In a sense, Israel has become a victim of its own success. The country has enjoyed a remarkable, decade long run of economic growth and reduced inflation rivaling that of the most successful of Asia's little giants. Late-model Japanese vehicles choke the narrow streets of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and personal computers stuffed with domestically produced software occupy space in most homes. No other society than the United States has adapted more quickly and profitably to the age of cyberspace. "Israel has been through a lot in the past 50 years, I'm suprised they have survived this long," says Brodi Fontenot, a senior history major. But for all their visible prosperity, Israelis still view their existence as a nation as precarious. The reason being that Israel remains in a twilight zone between peace and war. None of its Arab neighbors have attacked since the traumaticYom KippurWar of 1973, yet Iraq rained Scud missiles on Tel Aviv and environs in 1991, and the Israeli army is still pinned down in a brutish war of attrition with guerrillas in southern Lebanon. Even the peace pacts with Egypt and Jordan are cold turkey, they were simply treaties that were signed by Arab leaders but never embraced by the people. At the same time, Israel is going through an internal transformation. Israeli Jews haave lost faith in many old Zionist institutions associated with the founding of their state. A new Israel is emerging that is more democratic, pluralistic, stratified and divided. Israeli Jews can not agree on the size of their state or what to do about the Palestinians who live within its present borders. They even fight on who is entitled to be called a Jew. Vice President Al Gore joined Israeli citizens in the celebration. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu greeted Gore at the Jubilee Bells Concert in Jerusalem. The Vice-President spoke a few words in Hebrew to the crowd, saying God bless the State of Israel. But, looking back at these 50 years it is hard to believe that Israel has finished going through its formative stages, but its future is wide open. "Israel through alot in the past fifty years* Ifm suprised they liave survived this lens**" Brodi I 216 Nay
