Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

OKLAHOMA CITY (June 21, 2011) – Gov. Mary Fallin has officially proclaimed May 9, 2011 as “Peace in Israel” day in Oklahoma.
“While Oklahoma may be geographically distant from Israel, we are spiritually and culturally linked thanks to our citizens’ strong Judeo-Christian values,” said state Rep. Mark McCullough, R-Sapulpa, who requested the proclamation. “I appreciate Governor Fallin’s willingness to clearly identify the people of Oklahoma as an ally of Israel.”
The proclamation declares that Israel “is the greatest ally of the United States in the Middle East” and notes that Oklahoma “has a long relationship with Israel which includes trade, educational exchanges and sister cities.”
The document notes that previous administrations have shown support for Israel since its modern-day creation in 1948 and its subsequent growth, “its battle against terrorism, and its efforts in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.”
The proclamation also notes that “the Holy Bible states that those who bless Israel will themselves be blessed (Genesis 12:3), and Oklahomans desire a blessed state.”
“I feel very strongly that Israel is a lonely beacon of hope and freedom in the Middle East, and we must do all we can to support our most important ally in that region,” McCullough said. “This proclamation is one simple but important way to do that.”
May 9 was chosen as “Peace in Israel” day in Oklahoma because that is Israel’s Independence Day according to the Jewish calendar.
