The UN report issued last week and authored by Richard Goldstone, claimed that the IDF committed war crimes in seeking to defend Israel from Hamas’s missile and rocket onslaught from Gaza.
I happened upon the video pasted below by chance last week and it occurred to me that the people of Israel don’t really care about Goldstone and the UN and all their libels against our sons, and daughters, our brothers and sisters, husbands and wives in the IDF. We aren’t seeking their approval or permission. We know who we are and we know who our soldiers are.
I think this video pretty much sums it up. The song in the background is Psalm 121. It was written by King David.
The folks at Art Scroll/Mesorah Publications were kind enough to send me their translation of the psalm for those of you who are unfamiliar with the text.
A song of ascent.
I will raise my eyes upon the mountains;
Whence will come my help.
My help is from Hashem;
Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to falter;
Your Guardian will not slumber.
Behold he neither slumbers nor sleeps — the Guardian of Israel.
Hashem is your Guardian;
Hashem is your shade at your right hand.
By day the sun will not harm you,
Nor the moon by night.
Hashem will protect you from every evil;
He will guard your soul.
Hashem will guard your going out and your coming in.
From this time and forever.
Take that “Judge” Goldstone, UN, Barack Obama and all the rest.
Shana tova to Am Yisrael and to all of our friends.
