In this video, I would like to give reasons why we should appreciate Israel more. In addition, this video is a way of showing my gratitude to Israel for all the help they have given us during the darkest days of our country – the Philippines.
What is the essential nature of Israel? Is it the unique topography and location? Is it the holiness that one feels in so many special spots in this country? Or is it perhaps the amazing inventions that have come out of this tiny country that have impacted on the entire world?
I think this video does indeed nail it when the spotlight goes on the people. Yes, the people of Israel are perhaps the most amazing aspect of the Holy Land.
What makes the people so special?
Without a question, all of the wars that Israel has fought create a unique psyche among the Israeli people. But, it is so much more than that.
It would seem that the rich history that so many Israelis brought back with them from the exile is an essential ingredient to what makes this country so special. Jews have literally come back from all four corners of the earth. That means that the State of Israel is a salad of Jews from Yemen, Russia, Morocco, Iraq, Rumania, Algeria, France and another 50 countries. But this is everywhere in the country.
This young filmmaker;s keen eye noted this and presents his version of appreciation of the Land with a special note of thanks to the State of Israel.
