as far as i'm concern I think that west bank should not have been given to Palestinians it should be Israeli ... the Palestinians already have the other side of Israel and that should not have gone either ... Don't give into the Western demands about giving up your land.

Waking America UP!
It was good educators from Sderot, Israel came to Temple Beth El, in Flint, MI, U.S.A. to educate people on what they are going through just in teaching in Sderot. I couldn't imagine having to worry about ROCKET ATTACKS in the middle of teaching my classes at a community college and then not having time to get to a bomb shelter should there be an attack. The film showing that there was less than 4 minutes to warn of an enemy attacking by air. This is scarey stuff! You have my admiration for the courage you show! May Hashem Bless Jerusalem and Israel with continued protection!

Also the Golan Heights!
Just as crucial as the central mountain ridge are the Golan Heights including Har Hermon! This should aslo have been mentioned.

What happened to the "never again" after WW2.Are we facing another holocaust without support from our once western allies.The leadership of thr USA is most certainly not for our salvation.We stand alone and are our own responsibility.

Do not give up our land
There are many Jews that are still sleeping and one day they will wake up and realize that their home is Israel. Save the land and stop giving it away. You need the land for our people.

There is enough really scary stuff to focus on, keep it real.
Iran is a threat for sure but not through Jordan, the real threat is missiles, which can overfly Iraq & Jordan. I recall hearing that if a hostile army invaded Jordan Israel would react.
Iraq is under US control and will be for the foreseeable future
67 was a pre-emptive strike, Israel was not attacked.
Over the top, get your facts straight. Keeping it real will get people on board.
Israel has real threats Hamas and the brain washing of there children. Nuclear Iran and a possible dirty bomb or missiles. The spread of fundamentalism.

Israel's"pre- emptive" strike
In '67 Israel's pre-emptive strike was precipitated by Egypt and Syria amassing their armies on Israeli borders. Egypt also closed the Strait of Hormus to Israeli shipping...these are both acts of war, in case you were not aware.So in essence it wasn't a pre-emptive strike. It was an answer to acts of war

What Is Aliyah ?
Never heard about this.
If America gets any worse, which I think it will, we may have to consider this.

This is a great video. Well put together and very informative. I find it frustrating though, because it tells us what Israel needs, but it doesn't say how we can help, or what is the purpose of the video.
I wish the Center for Public Affairs would be more specific about the way in which we civilians and supporters of I'israel can be of practical help.
Am Yisroel Chai!

i hope we jews listen
instead of us jews trying to convince the world what is and what isn't defensible borders, why don't we take the message and come fill the land. then we don't have to worry about slick videos to carry our message. we will speak with our bodies by moving our persons to our home. the end.

Just want to say that you don't have to win a trip to get to Israel on a one way ticket to stay here. If you make aliyah, the fare to get here is covered by the Jewish Agency, so don't hold back moving here for lack of plane fare. B'Hatzlacha

I stand with Israel..
I want to help, I want to move with there and help, I want to win the round trip, but I am going to stay there!..

Borders are not what provides security
I n this age of missiles and aircraft, it's not defensible borders that will bring peace. Also, Egypt and Jordan do have peace treaties with Israel( the video doesn't distinguish between them and other states). I hope Israel can find peace with it's other neighbors.
June 27, 2010 11:41 PM
Very well put.
But the world will ignore it.
It seems God is picking a fight with Israel's neighbors. Don't give away one milimeter to these thugs. Stand your ground, Israel, and watch more of Ezekiel's prophecies (chapters 38, 39) come true.

Protect all of Israel at any cost. Do NOT
allow the USA to dictate what Israel does!
