This victory was not the first nor will it be the last! Because the creator of everything that came into existence has raised the nation of Israel to let all other nations know that He alone is God with no other beside Him, as long as other nations continues to attempt to destroy the witness of their creator, they will be destroyed For God will not allow His witness to be utterly destroyed (this is true both to His Written Word and the nation.

Now the question is, when are all the nations going to realize of this infallible truth and stop intimidating or fighting with their creator? The previous wars happened due to lack of education and the needed information, but now at twenty century? What will be our excuses for all the problem we have caused to all humanity?
We all must seek peace and begin to resolve our differences setting peace as our goal.

Peace to the Israel of God and to all who seek It in truth. Reply

God always keeps His promises, He said the battle is His. He said that your enemies will come at you one way but will flee from you several ways. I remember that war. Thank you for the reminder. Reply

I was waiting to board a plane to come home to EY when I was told I could fly because war had broken out. BH I finally came home to the only home a Jew has a few weeks later. We have to remember this belongs to us because of HaShem. May we be zoche to see true peace with Moshiach Reply

On that day when the War was over, I remember where I was standing, in that exact spot. I think we all do that, when we know that something momentous is happening. The Rebbe was truly Hashem's emissary on Earth. Reply

Excellent Presentation I felt this deeply. This will help me write a story about a boy in Israel during the Six Day War. Reply

I am a Judeo-Christian (Roman Catholic) and have a strong spiritual affinity with the Israelites. I pray that may GOD always protect her always to the end of time. I also pray that the nations who want the destruction of Israel be enlighthened that we are all brothers thru our patriarch ABRAHAM. Christians, Jews and Muslims we are all brothers.... why do we have to kill one another? Reply

To Eitan I believe it'd called "Atem Shalom". Reply

I'm a Christian and try as much as I could to study the Torah as well as love G-D, the same G-D of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

To everyone in Israel, in these times of trial, remember that you are descendants of your forefathers and whatever blessings they receive you shall recieve.

As another Jew told me during his visit here in my country, remember to acknowledge that everything is from G-D and without him we cannot achieve the success we all have.

May all the Jews in Israel and around the world experience Shalom even in this trouble times. Reply

Does anyone know the name of the song that was being played as they were talking about the Tefillin campaign, or who it's by? Reply

How that movie excited me! And I've heard about all the "tanks" that were heard, and "soldiers in white" that were seen, on the Golan Heights by the Syrians in that war -- it could only have been the God of Israel fighting for you!!!

I'm a Christian Zionist who has loved the God of Israel, according to Isaiah 56:6-7, and His Jewish people, for the past ten years.

Israel, you must remember WHOSE you are! Call upon the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for protection, as your Christian Zionist friends in America and other nations are doing for you. "Call upon Me, and I will answer you." Jeremiah 33:3, Psalm 91:15, 145:18, Proverbs 2:3-6. May God's blessing and protection be on you! Reply

Being Christian and raised Lutheran all my life, I don't understand Hebrew. What I do understand from watching this clip is the wonderful love God has for us. Miracles do not have an individual language, or barriers. This clip is as relevant today as it was 39 years ago...I pray that everyone begins to pay attention to what is going on around them. Reply

Tanya by heart As I watched this video I was encouraged to continue studying Tanya by heart to help the Israeli sondiers. I already learned 11 lines Reply

The Six Day War and tefillin Shalom Rafael,
You are absolutely right! To every word I agree with all my heart.
We need it so terribly, true peace and the coming of Mashiach.
May it be soon. Reply

Rafael V. Rabinovich July 20, 2006

It is very important to learn all what the Rebbe said about the Land of Israel. If we all listen, if the government and the people of Israel listen, not only will there be victory, there will be no more war.
Men, don tefillin. Women, light Shabbos candles. Jews, learn Chumash, recite Tehillim, learn the Tanya every day.
And learn the Rebbe's talks on Eretz Yisroel, on the integrity of the Land, on the True Peace, the peace of Moshiach. Reply

This is a wonderfully moving clip that rejuvinates my faith. I will do what I can to see that others see it. Many of us grew up without enough knowledge of our own history: Let us never forget! Thank you, Rebbe. Reply
