Israel’s help is in the L-rd
Zechariah 12:8: “In that day the LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of the LORD before them.”
This morning my wife and I were at the Embassy of Israel commemorating ‘Yom Hazikaron’, the remembrance of Israel’s fallen soldiers who died protecting ‘Eretz Yisrael’.
In his speech, the Israeli ambassador said that Israel stands today because of the sacrifice of Israeli soldiers, many of whom have died defending the Jewish Homeland.
While this is partially true, and it is heart-breaking that the majority of soldiers who have died defending Israel are so young, some of them only teenagers, the truth is that Israel stands today because of the faithfulness of Almighty G-d who has always defended His Land, Israel.
