> We have never
been better off
A fantastic E-mail that has been
going around, great for morale.
It's only the TV and the media that make people think that the end of the world
is coming. Only 60 years ago, they were leading Jews to their death like
sheep to the slaughter! No Country, No Army. 55 years ago!! Seven Arab
countries declared war on the small Jewish State, only a few hours old!! We
were then 650,000 Jews! Against the rest of the Arab world! No IDF [Israel
Defense Force]. No mighty Air Force, Just tough people With nowhere to go. Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia, attacked all at once.
The country the UN "gave us" Was 65% desert. The country started from
scratch! 35 year! s ago!! We fought The three strongest armies in the Middle East, And wiped them out in six days. We fought against Different
coalitions of Arab countries,
modern armies, And masses of Soviet Russian weapons, And we still won!!! We have
today A country, An army, A strong Air Force, A Hi-Tech Economy, exporting
millions. Intel - Microsoft - IBM develop their stuff here. Our doctors win
world prizes For medical developments. We made the desert flourish, Selling
oranges and vegetables to the world. Israel has sent its own satellite
into Space!! Three satellites all together!!. We sit proudly, With the US,
with 250 million people, With Russia, with 200 million people, With China,
with 1.1 billion people, With the Europeans -- France, England, Germany, with
350 million people, The only countries in the world To shoot something into
space!! Israel is today In! the world nuclear power family With the US, Russia, China,
India, France, and England. [We don't admit it, but every one knows...] To
think that only 60 years ago, We were led, Shameful, With no hope, To our
death! We crawled out of the burning ashes of Europe, We won our wars here
with less than nothing in our hands, We built an "empire" out of
nothing. Who the hell is Mr. Arafat To make me Scared? To make me be
Terrified? You make me laugh! Passover was celebrated;
not forget what the story is all about. We overcame Pharaoh, We overcame
the Greeks, We overcame the Romans, We overcame the Inquisition in Spain, We
overcame the Pogroms in Russia, We overcame Hitler, We overcame the Germans, We overcame the Holocaust, We overcame
the armies of the seven Arab countries, We overcame Saddam. Take it easy, folks,
We will overcome The present enemies too. No matter Which part of human history you try! Think of it,For us, The Jewish
people, Our situation has never been better!!!
So, Let's Lift our Heads High, Let's Remember: Any nation or culture that tried
to mess around with us Was destroyed -- while we kept going!!! Egypt? Anyone
know where their empire disappeared to? The Greeks? Alexander of Macedonia? The
Romans? Does anyone today speak Latin? The Third Reich? Anyone heard any
news about it lately? And look at us, The Nation from the Bible, From Slavery in
Egypt, We are still here, Speaking the same language!! Right here, right
now. The Arabs don't know it yet, But, they will learn that there is one G-d. As long as we keep our identity, We are eternal. So, sorry for not
worrying, ! Not bitching, Not crying, Not being scared. Things are O. K. here.
They surely can be better, But still: Don't fall for the media junk, They won't
tell you That there are Festivals going on, That people keep on living,
That people are going out, That people are seeing friends. Yes, our morale
is low, So what?
It's only because we weep for our dead While they enjoy the blood. This is
the same reason why, We will win, after all. You can forward this e-mail If you
choose. To the whole Jewish community, and to people throughout the world.
They are part of our strength. It might help some of them To keep their
heads up high. Tell them That there is nothing to worry about. Tell them to
think BIG, and To see the whole picture.
You Next Year in Jerusalem."
