all the nations visit Israel!

I am so happy that the man talked about Israel then he visited Israel the first time. He is blessed. Let all the nations visit Israel as the Holy Land! If they visit there and bless Israel´s God. God bless them! I visited Israel the first time, too. I was blessed and I felt me loved as the magnet from Israel! Is it God´s will that I am welcome to live there? In my heart is Israel!/ Shalom /A.M.Zachariassen

Thank You

Thank you, Dr Zaman for so many things. For telling the truth about Israel, for acknowledging your grandfather, for teaching others the truth about Israel and most of all, for having the courage to stand up to the mis information (read: LIES) that are being perpetuated by those who hate us. Yes, I say "us" because although you are not Jewish, you are one of "us". One who can discern right from wrong and one who can call out the liars and israel haters. Yes, Dr Zaman....AM YISROEL CHAI! ??
