The realization of the age-old dream  
 
 
Order to establish the Israel Defense Forces, 26 May 1948, signed with handwritten notations by Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ben-Gurion
...................................................................................................................
With the declaration of statehood, the formation of an organized and unified national army became an urgent necessity. The disparate underground forces, which had defended Jewish inhabitants of the country until then, were formed at the time of the British Mandate. These organizations now had to be joined to create a unified fighting force.
