Jewish Student Reveals the Real History of Israel in 4 Minutes


I don’t tend to do video posts, but this one really is worth watching. It encapsulates modern Israeli history from a personal point of view as few of the more abstract narratives have. This kind of story captures reality in an intimate way and really connects with people.

The young Israeli-American woman is speaking in response to the University of Michigan’s anti-Israel divestment resolution which ultimately failed to pass.

    If only Israel’s leaders had the courage of this girl…

    On more optimistic note: as long as Jews like her exist Israel is not lost.

      Against all of the best efforts of leftists, Israel will never, ever be lost. Watch for the coming military attack on Israel, you’ll see.

    I’m not Jewish — in fact, I’m an atheist — but I hold Israel in esteem because it is the only Western, pro-civilization, industrialized, pro-freedom country in the Mideast, which is why it is condemned, opposed, and hated, by Arabs, by the American Left, by Muslims of all stripes. by environmentalists, by racists of all kinds, and by our current president, as well. Long may Israel thrive.

      I agree. Israel is an embarrassment to its Arab/Muslim neighbors. They look at Israel and see the world turned upside down. The Jews are the ones who should be living in 7th century squalor, not the Muslims. How can this be? Empirical evidence is a powerful thing and the Arab/Muslims are haunted by it.

        The old saying comes to mind,

        The best revenge is SUCCESS.

        Israel is a success while its neighbors are bastions of hate, murder, bombing, suicide attacks, beheading, kangaroo courts, infanticide, rape, stoning, acid attacks, cannibalism, poison gas attacks, hijacking…

      Some of my Christian friends wonder why I defend Israel like I do. The main reason is simply because they are the only country in the region to have civil rights for all. Muslims are more free in Israel than in any Arab country. Christians are tolerated and conditions are far better under the Jews than under the Muslims. Any person who thinks otherwise should read the Pact of Umar, the so-called rightly guided caliph.

        The only Palestinians who “prosper” under Hamas or Fatah rule are the ones who skim of billions from U.S. and foreign “aid,” or who have connections to the political establishment. Daniel has exposed them in the past. But the average Gazan or West Banker had better toe the line or get whacked Muslim style.

          And don’t get accused of being an Israeli agent or you might see yourself being dragged down the street by a motorcycle.

          That seems to be accepted over there. Over here two men murdered a black man named Byrd that way and they got a life sentence without parole and a death sentence, the two most strict punishments in the US.

    Great video, Daniel. As long as you keep posting videos like that, there’s hope for you too!

    And Zion endures to tell the next generation. I love her courage!
    “Walk about Zion, go around her, number her towers, consider well her
    ramparts, go through her citadels, that you may tell the next generation
    that this is G-d, our G-d forever and ever. He will guide us forever.”
    -A Psalm of the sons of Korah, Psalm 48

    Wow! Praise G-d for such people as this beautiful young lady.

    Kol hakavod, Daphna!

  • truebearing

    What an intelligent, poised, and mature young women. I’d like to see Obama or Kerry respond to her objective clarity. They’d be lucky to finish their names and a quick lie in that amount of time.

  • Lightbringer

    Great speech, great kid. I hope we see a lot more of her in the future.

  • Larry Larkin

    Class act, very well done young lady.

  • worldwatchman
