A beautiful song.
I really enjoyed listening to this song. God bless Israel and her people. God protect its borders and bring peaceupon Jerusalem. God have mercy on all people who are misled and cause harm to Israel.

A simple song for Israel
A simple song for a big nation! God bless very much my dear people, forever...

And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
It seems That the children of Ishmael will never be willing to live in peace with the children of Israel. Unfortunately this song is not going to be acceptable to the enemies of Israel.
June 19, 2010 6:32 AM
May Israel be blessed.
What a beautiful song. I love this song and I love Israel too! I cannot speak Hebrew but the most famous Hebrew word in the world is SHALOM. This word says it all. May your love for Peace continue to flow forth. G-d bless Israel forever and ever.

Simple song for Israel
I love this song. I wish that I could down load it from I-Tunes or somewhere, because I would love to play it when I'm working in the barn. Carring a computer is so combersom when your feeding and grooming horses! But it would work great on my MP3 player. : )
I love this song.

others,that dont like us.
June 16, 2010 7:28 PM
I LOVE THIS MOVIE, but it makes me really homesick!!
good thing i have my next trip planned already :)
June 16, 2010 4:26 AM
This means all honor to you. Thank you for this wonderful song that speaks from the heart. If you want to see peace in Israel go to any Israeli hospital and you will see Jews, Arabs, and Christians working side by side in peace. Peace can happen if the hating stops.
June 16, 2010 2:57 AM
more arabs must see this video clip.hopfuly will change something in their opinion.we need partener for peace.until now NO peace partener to guarantee our security borders.so we'll wait.
June 15, 2010 11:58 PM
Israel has made strides to show she wants peace, cooperation and harmony. The cooperation betwen Israel and the West Bank has diminished tention and increased trust. Also, when I read about the sucees in Israel and West Bank working together, learning to trust each other; how many lives are still with us because of this trust? HaShem's blessings on all.
June 15, 2010 3:21 PM
truth in song
my name speaks for the song .
may we neve lose our hope .
June 15, 2010 3:13 PM
it was beautiful
Thank you for bringing some light in and beauty into a horrible situation.
Just wish everyone would see it and truly believe like you and me that this is the way it should be. Love between all of Hashems creations. living in harmony.
June 15, 2010 2:18 PM
A beautiful song, depicting love, fun, joy. Yet, it is sad that Israel has to defend itself against lies and hate and propaganda. Truth will win out in the end.
God bless Mitch, Sam and Bobby Darin for putting this together.
June 15, 2010 2:07 PM
Glad to hear the song. Sad that it even needs to be presented and is not self-evident. Like the images also.
June 14, 2010 10:49 AM
The liveliest song for Peace.
It would be nice if the other side accepts Israel's offer for peace. It would be wonderful. We'll just have to trust everything to Hashem.
June 14, 2010 1:49 AM
love it love it
love it love it
June 13, 2010 8:56 PM
May you be heard
June 13, 2010 8:55 PM
This song makes me sad.
It's always only Israel that has to explain itself. This song is stating the obvious, which should not even need to be said. Israel has always only wanted peace, and has never sought anything but peace. yet it is put in the position of having to say what should be obvious to any fair minded person, of which there are unfortunately too few in the world. It makes me sad.

This video is cool and refreshing - just like Israel!
June 13, 2010 4:49 PM
Simply beautiful!! Israel is a blessing to the whole world.

Thou Art So Sweet Saving Israel For Me
By D.K. Milgrim-Heath 2007-2010
Thou art so sweet saving Israel for me
God does finally answer prayers truly eventually.
You gave your children land given with love genteelly.
Revealing miracles opened up my eyes to really see.
Whenever the going gets tough you’re here -you show. All I do is call you by name wherever I may go.
Your strength and hope you do provide 24/7 arrive.
Never lost hope our answers somehow keepus alive.
Lord you’re always at my side- your loving will never end-
Feeling alone with no one else you’re always my eternal friend.
I’m Israel -your child upon my land as long’s there’s my soul’s alive to be-
Following you till the ends of time ever so faithfully.
My love for God and Israel will never cease till my dying day-
Everyday it strengthens with new experiences along the way.
Oh Lord! I’m happy you’re in my life important as can be-
The sweetness by finding you changed my life forever you see!
God saved me in the coming of dawn-
My devotion to him was stronger since that morn!
Commitments between us are now stronger so much more-
I bring your messages to others on every shore!
Your devotion to me is overwhelmingly profound-
Keeping me focused in you and my feet firmly on the ground.
Life gets impossible at times so God says give me more glory-
Spreading God and Israel around the world with truth is my story!
June 12, 2010 11:28 PM

June 11, 2010 2:32 AM
What a lovely song and video... it is a simple message but rings with truth- Israel has and always will stand for peace, justice, goodness, as it strives to contribute to the world at large. I wish more people would sing this song and believe in it

Israel Stands For Peace
Would of been interesting to hear what people thought of the music video "We con the world" Aish probable can't put that on their site. This song Israel Stands For Peace, yes they do. People have different ways to stand to keep the peace though. Exposing the ridiculous ways the news tries to give Israel a bad reputation is another way to stand for peace also.(As in the other video) This simple song for Israel, reminds us of who we are, and it's OTHERS that are not for peace. Sure you know who the others are.
June 10, 2010 11:39 AM
Simply Wonderful & Catchy
Sing it loud and sing it proud. The only ones that have to truly believe are the Jews themselves but it's too convenient for the world to use Israel as a scapegoat for everything.
