Having returned recently from a 12 day tour of Israel, I was struck with the incredible significance of the above YouTube video. This song has become one of my favorites, even more so after personally visiting the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem and seeing the absolute atrocities committed by the anti-Jewish people during World War II. Candidly, I am still amazed that less than 3 years after the annihilation of ONE THIRD of all Jews in the world, a few hundred thousand Jews returned to Israel and held off the armies of over 100 million Arabs who invaded almost immediately after the Jews declared their Independence on May 14, 1948. NOT ONE COUNTRY (including the US) helped them defend their God Promised Land. Not then. Not during the wars of the mid 50’s. Not during the 6 day war of 1967 when they retook the City of Jerusalem which the Jordanians had illegally taken from them in 1948. Not the war of 1973. Only God came to their rescue!
I encourage you to watch it again (I did post it last year). Sorry, but there is a brief ad which you can bypass at the beginning. There is no doubt God continues to protect the Jews and their Holy Land and what they have accomplished economically, scientifically, militarily, etc. with only 8 million people is stunning!
If you get anything out of this, I suggest you pass it along to your friends so they can do as we do, and that is to “…therefore comfort one another with these words.”
May God Bless you!
