I too heard a crowd of young Israelis break out into the singing of Hatikva in a place far away from Israel where no Jews live today. It was in Aushwitz. When I joined in, it rekindled my soul and gave me new hope to realize that despite all those who wish to destroy the Jewish people, we are still here. The author needs to research the national anthems of other countries an compare them to Hatikva. Although it is not the national anthem, in the US for example, I Pledge Allegiance is recited every morning in every school in America. The words 'Under God' where added in the 1950s. Imagine a writer for the New York Times writing an Op-Ed suggesting that it be changed because it's offensive to atheists and children of illegal immigrants ?
