Prof Mansur has a lovely piece on Israel. Israel is an exceptional nation. I am proud that Canada is the Jewish State's strongest ally.
The notion of an exceptional nation suggests the role of providence (divinity or God) in the securing of its destiny. American “exceptionalism” in this sense means America’s republican experiment with freedom and democracy h} wrote, “there can be little question that the hand of providence has been on a nation which finds a Washington, a Lincoln, or a Roosevelt when it needs him.”
