An Antidote to the Nonsense

Inspiring video that shows how we Jews view Israel, our history, and particularly Israel’s place in the modern middle east.  Anyone who thinks that Israel is being unfair to the region’s non-Jewish populations, or who imagines that any of this land belongs to so-called “Palestinians,” should watch this video, if only to try to understand how we Jews see the situation.  It wont change anybody’s mind of course, since rationality seems to have vanished from the partisan debates; but it can at least help one side understand how the other side perceives reality.
