It is nothing to celebrate. Today it executes prisoners and sells their body parts, and is committing cultural genocide in Tibet. The people of China deserve better.

Yaakov,congratulations on being chosen. We need to <a href="http://yvipat.com">stgtrnehen</a> our connections in China. I hope your chinese is understood. נסיעה טובהAs to Omar Malkawi's comment, I believe he is being too harsh with his Palestinian brothers(I'm sure that he is referring to them). Their human rights action stems from Islam and its teachings.Check your Palestinian text books and school books. Then check those of Israel and its courts, as well as the conditions of Arabs and Christians living in Israel.Chag Sameach

Omar, you obviously are igonrant of all the technological innovations that Israel has made.Everything from Google search algorithms and instant messaging to radiation free cancer treatments and the camera pill have been invented by Israelis, and that's only the tip of the iceberg.Israel has more civilization and has offered more to civilization in its 63 years of existence than any Muslim nation has ever and probably will produce.Israel is defending Jewish freedom, Jewish self-determination, and its own survival against Islamofacists like yourself who would happily finish the work of your WWII predecessors.What great accomplishments for civilization has Palestine brought the world? Advancements in suicide bombing and the indoctrination of hatred to children, or is it the endless grievance mongering and phony victimonology. AM YISRAEL CHAI
