AL-QUDS, PALESTINE

 

June 3, 2014

In the Name of the Almighty

To the Honorable Prime Minister of the State of Palestine
His Excellency

Dr. Rami Hamdallah

A Saloom Aleikem

Congratulations, ,تهنئة

 

As Orthodox Jews true to the Torah, we wish to express our very best wishes for the success of Your Excellency as the chosen Prime Minister of the new Palestinian Unity Government.

On this momentous occasion we pray to the Almighty to guide Your Excellency in leading the Palestinian nation, which has gone through so many years of suffering and deprivation, to peace, freedom and prosperity.

As Jewish people, we have enjoyed a long history of harmonic coexistence with the Arab populace of Palestine. Our Rabbis and elders have always taught us as required by our religion - to remember and be grateful for the kindness and friendship accorded us in Palestine and other Muslim and Arab countries, throughout the generations. Therefore our hearts are rent and we share the pain and suffering that has befallen our Palestinian brethren. With the creation of this Unity Government, we certainly are hopeful that a beginning of a bright and shining future has begun. The true freedom and restoration of all the rights of the suffering Palestinian nation, should, with the help of the Almighty, become a reality, in the near future.

We yearn for the day when Arabs and Jews will once again live together, with trust, peace, and tranquility in a free Palestine.

May the Almighty bestow upon Your Excellency, His true blessings.

May the Almighty grant that Your Excellencys glory, be exalted.

May the Almighty protect Your Excellency, from all evil.

May the Almighty bless, Your Excellencys ministers and counselors.

May the Almighty grant Your Excellency, success in leading the great State of Palestine in peace and prosperity.

We await the day when the entire world will recognize the sovereignty of the Creator, and the words of the prophet Isaiah will yet be fulfilled: No nation will lift its sword against any other, nor will they learn warfare anymore. And all the nations will serve The Almighty together.

We wish to extend our warmest greetings to all the people and leaders of the State of Palestine, and our very best wishes for prosperity and success in all their endeavors.
