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.

Israel is not the problem in the Middle East.

Israel is the solution to the Middle East. If Israel fails in the Middle East, the western civilization will fall. It is our duty to protect and defend the Jewish state --For the generations to come and for the entire world.... Mosab Hasan Youssef, son of a Hamas founder and a former Hamas member

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.

Israel with or without God.

Israel stands alone in its spirit, its energy, its creativity, its moral standards and decency. If God helps, that is a plus. If America helps, that is good. If we help, that is good. The only thing not so good is Jews who do not understand the need to support Israel.
