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

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?

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.

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?

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!

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.
