Do You Pass the Israel Test?

Do you resent or celebrate Israel's success? How your society answers indicates that society’s progress.

Would you believe us if we said that the best litmus test of any society's success is its attitude towards Israel? Well, it's true. As George Gilder explains, whether a society envies and resents Israel's success or celebrates and tries to replicate it is indicative of that society's progress. Countries that "pass" the "Israel Test" tend to rise. Those who don't tend to sink. Does your society pass the "Israel Test"? Watch the video below and find out.

very interesting and informative in brief time

I think it imperative for myself and others to learn about the history and the Bible teachings as they go hand and hand.

The success of Israel is the joy of my entire family. The day Israel will fail the whole world fails. That is what I think and no one can change my mind except God. I believe in the GREAT ACHIEVEMENTS OF ISREAL. Israel is unique among all nations and the world must accept this reality.
