Yesterday was Yom Ha'tzmaut, Israel's Independence Day. People celebrated this country's 65th birthday around the world in a variety of ways -- from taking a dip in the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea to singing and folk dancing to eating falafel, a regional Middle Eastern dish staple consisting of golden fried chick pea balls, hummus and delectable salads stuffed inside pita pocket bread.
