The Arab-Israeli conflict is old. By that I mean, that it has been happening for a very, very long time. The modern conflict has been happening since 1948. Israel declared Independence on May 14, 1948, and on May 15 the armies of Egypt, Trans-Jordan, Iraq, and Syria all attacked the infant nation. Ever since, there has been conflict between Israel and her neighbors.
Today, popular liberal dogma places blame squarely on Israel’s shoulders, but the truth is that if the Muslim nations stopped fighting… there would be peace in the Middle East, because Israel would have no reason to fight. However, if only Israel stopped fighting… they would be wiped from the face of the planet.
That is reality.
A young teacher from the southern Israeli city of Ashdod put together a short video to the Matisyahu song “One Day,” declaring the average Israeli’s desire for peace but heart to survive.
It’s a beautiful tribute to the will of the Israeli people.
From Sara Merson’s YouTube page:
Some things that have been going on here in the past week. I didn’t take all the video, but everything is from the city where I live, Ashdod (in the south of Israel). This is the reality of whats going on here.. Over 1000 rockets have been sent to Israel from Hamas in Gaza. Even after the “cease fire,” Hamas continued to send rockets our way. We are fortunate here to have the “Iron Dome” antimissile system to intercept some of them, but without it, these rockets would land in heavily populated civilian areas and many would be killed.
The Israeli government and the IDF are doing all they can to protect it’s citizens from the barrage of rockets coming from Gaza. I have faith in this country, its military, and its people.
Please share with your friends, and עם ישראל חי.
