DOCUMENT OF RECOGNITION UP FOR SALE

U.S. President Harry S. Truman was the first world leader to recognize the state of Israel in 1948, but he didn't sign the official statement until years later. It is now for sale.

(Fox News) – A rare document signed by the president of the United States recognizing the Jewish State of Israel is up for sale, days ahead of Israeli Independence Day.

Before any other nation, President Harry S. Truman issued the historic 
statement recognizing "the new State of Israel" dated May 14, 1948. But
he didn’t sign the official document until many years later.

Truman had a signed photocopy made after Zecharia Sitchin, chairman of
the American-Israel Pavilion at the New York World’s Fair held from 1964-
65, discussed with the president the "regretful fact" the official document
of recognition wasn’t signed. The Democratic president signed it then and
there and left it in the care of Sitchin, displayed at the Pavilion. It was also displayed at the Israeli Embassy in Washington and at a Zionist of America
event.

(Fox News) – Fox Sports NASCAR analyst Darrell Waltrip has announced that
he will retire at the end of the network’s broadcast season.

Waltrip was a member of the Fox Sports NASCAR team when it first went on
the air in 2001, when he helped call the
Daytona 500 that was won by his
brother Michael, but is mostly remembered for the last-lap accident that
took the life of Dale Earnhardt.

Fox Sports CEO & executive producer Eric Shanks said “Darrell has been
the heart and soul of the Fox NASCAR booth since day one, so it’s incredibly bittersweet to know this is his final season.”

Waltrip, a 3-time series champion, said he has been talking about the decision
with his family for several months.
