Amazing Israeli video: the honor of wearing a uniform

This video is only 5 minutes and 36 seconds long, and at the end if you do not shed tears, you are heartless. I send a hearty Hooah to the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and this “Great in Uniform” project.

What it shows is that the IDF understands the promise of being a victor, not a victim. This is about the realization that everyone can be a contributing member to the security of their nation, and the pride in one’s country and the honor of wearing a uniform conquers any perceived disadvantage.

We should learn from this program, which promotes empowerment, and not some warped sense of social egalitarianism and fairness. God bless Israel, and I will always stand with you.

Shalom, Steadfast and Loyal.

Awesome….
Developing a powerful love of honor, integrity, country and your team is essential in the battle against indifference and the inevitability of victimization. Thanks for sharing this inspirational video.

This is a country that respects and loves its military! Here at home, our service men/women are being treated with contempt by the Democrats. Go to youtube and watch Durbin and Kerry’s comments against our Military. Those who put on army uniforms are often scolded by the left. This video is amazing!

Patriot

The left sucks and always have. Kerry shots himself in the butt with a round of rice and Durbin is a lying sack of durbin. Both are Un american as they come. They are both quislings and deserve to be treated as such.

One of my daughters was in the IDF for two years, another daughter is going in this summer. May God protect them and all the chayalim (solders) in the IDF. We are proud to be IDF parents.

Wordell

I ask (pray) to the Lord to protect them.. Myself? A Roman Catholic, ex-USN, saved by Israeli “commando’s” when we were not where we should have been when the 73′ war broke out. I am alive today because of Israel. That being said…if what I described had not happened….I’m still a 110% supporter of Israel and their survival against the powers from hell that want them destroyed. May I humorously paraphrase George Bush Senior? “Ain’t gonna happen”.

If only they were taught about the Lord Jesus Christ also.

Why?

“Wherefore God also has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name, which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11

Interesting . . . And here I always thought Our Lord Jesus, the Christ, was King of the Jews . . ?

He is King over all creation and is ruling over it right now waiting until He gets all His elect before He brings judgement on this earth.

What a fantastic program. Wish we had something like that here. My daughter wanted to join the military so bad, but she’s deaf in one ear, so she couldn’t. Brilliant kid, and she hears things we don’t hear because she has compensated with the other ear, but that didn’t count. 🙁

“Learn about the values of the IDF” This is so important that an armed force have values, standards and a code of conduct. At a time when our service is contemplating allowing cross dressers into the ranks.

Their biggest challange is trying to get them to salute correctly with a limp wrist…

lol and this is why the republican party is dying out

Wordell
Guest

eadtuff……those who fear…… say the opposite against their enemies. You KNOW the Republican Party is not dying out, it’s getting much stronger, and you’re terrified about it. The trouble with truth, to you, eadtuff, is that it never goes away. It always proves you wrong and you can scream, obfuscate, “gobblygook” words…but the truth is that your socialism is the death of mankind. It’s sad that you promote it.

LMFAO. I’m sorry you have trouble comprehending things.

Nice, an African-American supporting the modern day South Africa. The IDF is good at killing stone-throwing kids and blowing up apartment buildings but not much else.

James D. Burke
Guest

Those stone-throwing (kids) you write about should have their backsides nettled with a good stout hickory switch, start getting a good sound Biblical education,; be made to learn how to feed himself instead of going to the next step after stone throwing to learning how to bring down a jetliner, strap on a body bomb; sit a suitcase bomb to go off at a restaurant, wedding, soccer game or a Boston Marathon.

Hey Jimbo, you know that there are Palestinian Christians that Israel persecutes too, right?

mohammad's pink swastika

Israel does not need to persecute Christians in Palestine the Muslims have got that taken care of. Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle East, every single country surrounding Israel is Muslim theocracy and a true apartheid state they do not even allow jews to live there.

eadtuff
Guest

What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic
things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent
response were you even close to anything that could be considered a
rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having
listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your
soul.

El Gato

You know of any Jewish legislators in any of the countries surrounding Israel. Israel has Arab Christian and Muslim legislators in the Knesset. More of latter, but there are more Muslims than Christians.

eadtuff
Guest

Yes, Iran has a Jewish member of parliament: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Motamed. Also, Arab members of the Knesset face constant attacks: http://972mag.com/breaking-israeli-supreme-court-allows-palestinian-mk-zoabi-to-participate-in-elections/62966/

I’m not looking for points from you, meathead. You cannot dispute the facts, so you go on a disjointed insult that is so pointedly stupid. I mean come on, “everyone in the room is now dumber for having listened to it?” I didn’t post an audio tape, genius. its called reading.

It’s a movie quote. Your dumb, fact-free rant didn’t warrant an actual response. Since you still want to play, read this and tell me if you don’t think Christians are persecuted in israel: http://electronicintifada.net/content/palestinians-celebrate-easter-reclaimed-galilee-village/13339

Wow… I bet the jihadists would just use them for suicide missions and feel just as moved? Just makes me wonder and question the belief in the Sanctity of life and the value in the history of mankind from the muslim viewpoint. Remember, during the Golden Years of the Muslim enterprise a GREAT portion of libraries, historical texts, and anything relating to the traditions of a vast number of cultured were completely DESTROYED during their plunder of India, Turkey, N.

wtf is an “egolatarian” and an “Arian?”

eadtuff

Allen can praise this program since it’s an another country, but if it were being done here he’d have written an essay like “WHY IS OBUNGLER SENDING OUR BRAVE TROOPS TO DO SOMETHING SOCIAL WORKERS SHOULD BE DOING” Also as a conservative politician he would likely slash all funding required to do something like this.

More likely he would just rant on a blog, because he had a chance to do things in politics and didn’t get reelected because the voters thought he was insane

This is such an incredibly unique and wonderful program! It’s so sad that it would be absolutely impossible to do anything like it with Obama’s Military. The soldiers who are left either don’t know who to trust or are those who can not be trusted. Not the kind of atmosphere conducive to good works. THIS (Israel) is a country that is being treated by Obama as a terrorist nation as he befriends Iran and our other enemies. The sad thing is, we are all going to be painted by the world with the same brush. As an acquaintance of mine… Read more »

This is so amazing I shed tears shortly after I started watching it!!! God Bless Israel!!! Our anti-American government here is trying to do away with prayer in our military. They are wanting to recruit atheist and atheist chaplains!!! I always thought atheist don’t believe in anything religious…. Why would they need a chaplain??? I know why our government wants them, because they want to wipe out Christianity! The atheist will side with the illuminati communist Islamic anti-American government and come after the Christians!!!

They don’t need chaplains, but they could be persuaded by “Morale Officers”, aka Commissars.

You know NOT of what you speak, Lisa! It’s apparent you’ve NEVER served else you would know what has happened within our services over the years … AND it’s NOT recruiting of atheists and atheist chaplains (an oxymoron, at best). PS> I’m a 24 year Navy veteran and I DID work with the Navy’s Chaplain corps … so I’ve got at LEAST 24 years more experience!

all those kids they murdered would disagree

Wordell

All of those kids sent to die by their Islamofacist totalitarian bosses would agree they were sent to die by Islam. Come up against someone who will defend themselves (The Israelis)…and you’ll die. Those “kids” weren’t murdered…Islam allowed them to die for propaganda purposes…just like you, eadtuff, is guilty of. Hey eadtuff…what’s it like being a loser…on the losing side…causing your own loss through your lies…embracing the evil that Islam is….and having the gall to make it appear that Israel is causing the death of Muslim children.

yawn. wipe the froth away from your mouth and try again, kid. The only person that sounds like a fascist is you. yeah, it’s islam’s fault that unarmed kids are shot to death for protesting israel bulldozing their houses to make room for jewish only settlements. The only religion that crimes are being committed in the name of here is Judaism – Palestinians are being ethnically cleansed for the crime of not being Jewish. The State of Israel is a racist colonial state that perverts the religion of Judaism for political purposes – there are many Jewish activists here and… Read more »

Snore! You are a tool of the propaganda machine. Truth is truth. Lies, fabricated by the islamist, is their weapon upon which tools, such as yourself, so easily echo. The left and islam – two enemies of the truth, and in the end, the left will be annihilated by islam since they will no longer have any use for you.

The only place in the world that does not lock up the special needs children and give them a role in the Military. How unique and how blessed Israel is, We can learn a few things from them.

My own son, an American Christian Jew, is a special needs kid we are raising to be as independent as he can. Part of this process is his participation in high school AF JROTC. The empowerment available as a contributing member to a cause is immeasurable.

The only thing figured out is that you are looking for a sickening reason to bash Alan West. The reason for anti- American comments is #1, Alan West is a great warrior who served our country to the fullest and knows first hand how the Obama administration is weakening us to our knees!! #2, a lot of us knew this was going to be his agenda and many more have finally opened their eyes!! Obviously, your eyes are sewn shut! How terrible!!

You just said everything I was going to say…

You’re very fortunate to have met him-I am Canadian and I admire him immensely.He is precisely the antidote to Mr.665.9 (Can’t even get THAT right) who is screwing up the greatest country on earth. I HATE the ussa ! I want MY FRIEND THE USA BACK !

At least I know I’m not heartless.

I salute the IDF, and their proud “special troops” from this former USAF Captain.

But one parent said, “they feel equal”. I’d say “they ARE equal”, in the ways that count, equal in respect both to and from their comrades.
