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

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

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

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

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

At that time I was married to an Israeli for just one and a half years. We had an 8 month old Baby. I came from Germany. As a child I had seen how a war ends, where the soldiers outside the country were much stronger and better equipped.

There was no Jewish History in my soul, and I could not berlieve in miracles. When my husband left me, I was sure we all would die and I would never see him again.

When I heard from neighbors that the Egyptian planes were destroyed, I did not believe a word. I had as a child seen that people would be told lies all the time. Just 'Propaganda'. My Christian family in Germany (brothers) sent me a ticket for a special flight. I did not use it. I wanted to die where my husband died.

I had nobody who would have told me about the Rebbe's faith in miracles and that Hashem would not abandon his people. I only looked at the numbers of the enemy and saw only death in front of me. After six days my husband came back. Only then I realized that G-d never abandons Israel. Reply

Every time I see this video and especially this clip I get chills! The Rebbe is sending us a message for now-a-days! I recommend everyone to watch this and take it to heart! Reply
