A Beautiful People

I'm watching the Prime Minister speak on television; speaking about our strength, that we will not stop fighting, that we will not lose this war; that we are not a people that persecutes, rather a people of moral value; and that we are a people united, a beautiful people.

I have never in my life felt such unity as I have felt in the last few weeks. The Jewish people in Israel truly are united. We know that this threat is against us all. Our brothers and sisters are being bombed daily by terrorists who lack the simple ability to value human life. Israel is truly a difficult place sometimes. But difficult is not bad. It builds character. It permits for perspective and understanding.

We have always been and will always be one people, regardless of borders and oceans. Feeling absolute unity with that people, here in the land which our forefathers lived in thousands of years ago is something nearly beyond description. I am only sorry that it takes war for us to unite so. But that's what family does.

God bless you guys over there! The vast majority of us are pulling for you! I wish America could unite in this war we both share, but I fear things will have to get worse here before we unite once again. How soon we forget! The propaganda machine over here is relentless. But thank God for Talk Radio and the Internet.

You all have to win this one and we will support you in all you have to do!

Your unity is amazing...something that should be recognized, and in many cases, emulated. However, I can't help but wonder how much the follwing sentiment ("We have always been and will always be one people, regardless of borders and oceans. Feeling absolute unity with that people...") has worked against Israelis/Jews in recent years. A lot of peoples/countries/ethnicities are facing situations similar to what is happening in Israel...shouldn't there be some unity with those people as well? Unity borne of common circumstance is also important in my opinion.

Keep up the good fight!

Israel does have some unity with others facing the same situation. During the war in the Balkans, some refugees were brought to Israel. There are many Jews today working to fight what is happening in Sudan. What other people/countries did you have in mind in your comment?
