Not Impressed With the soldiers who threw their weapons down and refused to carry out the sin, yes I'm impressed.

Crying as you (dangerously) pull fellow Jews from their home? Nothing impressive.

Sickening.

the poppy generations, summer, 2011 thank you for this photo library.

in the coming mths we are going to see the troops begin coming home from afghanistan.

there is residual and vivid ironies in every conflict; recent US war vets already returned from aghanistan said they were shocked to find some of the same conditions at home they had been brainwashed to believe only existed in afghani life: homelessness, sickness, corrupt governments, lawlessness & GREED GREED GREED.

now the canadians claim they've saved the lives of 40,000 children: but to be raised in what conditions? poverty? war?

this is all the more reason to pray feverently for the quickening of the coming of moshiach.

Thank you for this heartfelt teaching.
Absolutely beautiful! Sensitive & Soulful.

Shalom. Reply

No one 'left' Gush Katif.

They were forced out.

Very powerful and emotional clip.

Thank you Reply

This reminds me of a book... I think everybody should read "Birds Without Wings." It is a quasi-fictional story based on the author's grandfather's childhood. It chronicles a small village in the then-Ottoman Empire that, prior to World War I was mixed muslim and christian, and everybody co-existed until they were caught up in war. The book ends (except for a prologue) with a march of death where the christians were forced to walk to the border, thousands of miles away. The book did an amazing job of illustrating the profound disconnect between the average citizen (who primarily wants peace and the chance to earn a living) and the politicians who wreak havoc on the world.

It is sad when people like those in this montage are forced to abandon their homes, their schools, their neighborhoods, their livelihood, because of academics in ivory towers who come to "peace" agreements. Where is the peace for the transplants? Where is the peace for the neighbors they left behind? Reply

AM YISRAEL CHAI We should all do our best to never rest until we all live in harmony. Help anyone that needs help. Do a mitzvah to change the world. We need to be harder with ourselves to make this world a better place. I have learned that as much as it hards to change something you can change yourself for the better ; who knows maybe that little deed or act that you have done has changed someone's life for the better or a situation. NEVER GIVE UP HOPE AND WORK HARD. Life is hard dont make it hard for youself work hard to live great. Hopefully after yeshivah I will make aliyah with my family so that all my visions and ideas and love and commitment can overflow in my homeland. I love Israel with all my heart and I love being a Jew and loving other Jews. AM YISRAEL CHAI. Reply

All Were Victims, All Will Return! How can there be among us some so calloused and unloving towards our own? I've personally heard the cries of the expellees, and the lament of the soldiers' mothers. Your presentation is powerful and inspiring! I was moved to tears as I thought of the convergence of emotions and questions, and doubts of all those involved...both soldiers and civilians, ultimately, victims together of the foolishness of those whose pride and concern for the views of the wicked exceed any love of the G-d or people or land of Yisrael - men of hearts not sown with the seeds of Torah. These victims were all forced out, not only of their rightful home, but out of a place of hope and promise. But they could only drive them out of Gaza - for now. We will return, and Hashem will restore 100-fold. Civilian and soldier will work and enjoy the land side by side, their families joined in singing the praises of the Almighty! G-d bless you for capturing hearts of faith, hope and love in this beautiful presentation!!! Reply
