Extremely well made video. Not really suprising.

No one can doubt that G-d is indeed the Guardian of Israel

Without a shadow of a doubt, Israel is nurtured and protected by the one and only Almighty G-d of Israel. May He bring Mashiach (the Messiah) very quickly in our days so we can live to see the rest of the blessings in the prophecies come true. (As astoundingly beautiful and awe inspiring as this testimonial video is, it is a drop in the bucket compared to the miracles that will take place when G-d redeems the entire Jewish people from exile and returns all of us to our land).

Todah Rabbah, Kol ha Kavod!

Thank you, Rabbi Shore. I wish everyone I know could see that video.
Happy Birthday to the most amazing nation on earth.
Am Israel Chai! From a non-Jew who loves you!

Thank you for your kind words!

Dear Ms. Boville:
Thanks so much for your most beautiful words about my people. They are very heartfelt. I do not come across many people like you; in fact throughout my entire life, I only met one other "non-Jew" who loves the Jewish people. May G-d's blessings be upon you and your family to fulfill His words in the book of Genesis. It says "I will bless the people of the nations that bless you and curse the ones who curse you."
Most sincerely, gratefully, and appreciatively,
Minna Weinreb

Unbelievable amount of volunteer work

Such success could only come with G-d's help and blessing.
This clip didn't even touch on the amazing amount of volunteer work all through Israel. Almost everyone I know is involved extensively here in Israel, and there is quite a lot of outreach to third world countries.

Also, despite how it is portrayed, the moral level of the army is something the world should know and emulate.

Thank G-d for a People who is slowly but surely becoming more and more of a light to all.
