This is why we will win, after all:
We were 650,000 Jews against the Arab world of millions.
There was no IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) or air force. We were only a small group of stubborn people with nowhere to go.
Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, and Saudi Arabia all attacked at once. The state that the United Nations ‘gave’ us was 65 percent desert. We started it from zero; from dust.
Fifty years ago we fought three of the strongest countries in the Middle East and we crushed them in the Six Day War.
Over the years we fought many coalitions of 20 Arab countries with modern armies and huge amounts of Soviet ammunition and still won.
Today we have a beautiful country, a powerful army, a strong air force, an adequate navy and a thriving high-tech industry.
Intel, Microsoft, and IBM have all developed businesses here.
Our doctors, physicists and many others won Nobel prizes in many fields.
We turned the desert into a prosperous land.
We sell oranges, flowers, vegetables and innumerable products throughout the world.
We launched our own satellite; in fact, three satellites at once! We are in good company: together with the USA, Russia, China and Europe (France, England and Germany), we are one of the only countries in the world that launched into space!
Israel today is among the few powerful countries that have nuclear technology. We will never admit it, but everyone knows.
To think that 72 years ago we literally crawled out from the burning crematoriums of Europe.
We won all our wars. With a little bit of nothing we built an empire. Who are Khaled Mashal (leader of Hamas) or Hassan Nasrallah (leader of Hezbollah), trying to frighten us? They are amusing us. They are insignificant.
We overcame everything.
We overcame the Greeks, we overcame the Romans, we overcame the Spanish Inquisition, we overcame the Russian pogrom, we overcame Hitler, Germany and the Holocaust, and we overcame the armies of seven countries.
Relax friends, we will overcome our current enemies too.
Never mind where you look in human history. Think about it — our well-being has never been better than it is now. So let’s lift our heads up and remember: never mind which country or culture tries to harm us or erase us from the world. We will still exist and persevere. Egypt? Anyone know where the Egyptian empire went? The Greeks? Alexander Macedon? The Romans? Who speaks Latin today? The Third Reich? Did anyone hear from them lately?
And look at us, the Bible nation – from slavery in Egypt we are still here, still speaking the same language.
Maybe The Arabs don’t know it yet but we are an eternal nation.
So no, we are not worrying, complaining, crying, or fearing…
Business here is fine. It can always be better, but it is fine. Don’t pay attention to the nonsense in the media because it will not tell you the truth, ever.
Yes, sometimes morale is low, but only because we are mourning the dead while Muslims are celebrating spilled blood.
And this is why we will win after all.
From time to time we come across material that is so unusual and powerful that posting it becomes a given.
This presentation is (obviously) a product of Israel.
The opening title in the video translates literally to “Things of Life” or “Things from Life. The three Hebrew letters at the end translate to “end.” The production is a wonderful respite from our day-to-day trouble-filled world.
Each ‘slide’ within the video will display for 10 seconds. You may, of course, if you wish to view them for a longer time, PAUSE THE VIDEO using the control beneath the player.
Enjoy the presentation which (if not paused) runs 7 minutes 45 seconds.
Music and voice accompaniment of “I’m Alive” by the great Celine Dion.
