This showed so much that happened when I was young and didn't understand what was happening. This makes me so proud of our noble, courageous people.

The Battle for Eretz Israel is not yet over!
I fear we must do it all again. Next time may we from Ephraim fully support Jahudah, as blood brothers should. See Yeshayahu(Isaiah) chapter 11 verse13.
Am Israel Chai!!!

Heroes and Heroines Everyone of them!
Awesome! We owe so much to these heroes! What a great blessing to be used by Hashem to fulfill His promises made thousands of years ago in the Bible. The magnificent rebirth of Israel!

A Gentile who loves Israel and the Jewish people.
Such a moving video, one that brought tears to my eyes. It is a tribute to and representative of the sacrifices made by so many to accomplish Aliyah and rebuild the magnificant State of Israel. Personally, my passion for Israel has been expressed in a novel, entitled "O Israel."
May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob continue to bless and keep the land of Israel, promised to the Jews as a title deed by the Lord himself. Her people are returning, and they will remain in the land forever. Shalom to Israel and to the people of the covenant.

Met one of the volunteers
I was honoured last week at the Israeli Embassy celebration of Yom Ha'atzmaut in Pretoria, South Africa to meet one of the volunteers from South Africa who went over in early 1948. What a humbling experience to hear that man speak! What a lesson in selfless, courageous dedication to a cause like no other in modern times.
