Shana Tova! Lo Iyrah!  Do not fear Israel.

“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save.” –Zephaniah 3:17


Israel—forever an optimistic and upbeat people, no matter what obstacles they face. They obtain and have favor, because it is Almighty God, Jehovah, Adonai, YHWH who has upheld them for millennia.

Gutsy and straight to the point, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t hold back the truth as he says, “Israel has extended its hand in peace from the moment it was established.”  The Israeli people have stretched themselves to the limit, making concessions to obtain peace for many years, but nothing has changed.

However, Israel has a strong, steadfast leader in Netanyahu as he continues to remain adamant and anchored about protecting the Israeli people and their heritage

“…we must continue a firm policy that makes clear, that terror and missile attacks on our citizens will NOT be tolerated,” he said.

As Netanyahu also mentions in his Rosh Hashanah message in 2010, “…as Israel’s Prime Minister, it’s my responsibility to make every effort to forge a lasting peace with our neighbors; lasting peace MUST be anchored in security and it must be anchored in the recognition of the Jewish state’s permanence in this region, not merely as a fact but it’s something that our neighbors accept by right.”

He talked of challenges “in the coming year,” (2011) but was optimistic going forward.

For his Rosh Hashanah message, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sends greetings again, “…from Jerusalem, the eternal, united capitol of the Jewish people and the Jewish state.

“In order for there to be peace, Israel has to be STRONG,” he said.  He reminded all that, “people make peace with the strong; they don’t make peace with the weak…for Israel to remain strong, we have…to convince the world of the reality and the sincerity of our desire for peace.”

Netanyahu tried a graceful gesture toward Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, extending his hand in peace at the UN, but there was no response.

“Palestinians finally have to recognize what all of you recognize, that Israel is the Jewish state …that the Jewish people, after all their travails… deserve their one and only place under the sun, in the land of Israel, the state of Israel,” Netanyahu asserted. “The Palestinians FINALLY have to do what they refuse to do throughout the decades:  RECOGNIZE the one and only Jewish state and if they do, then I think that we will have a very, very good year.”

The Mid-East is in a constant struggle to remain relatively stable, but with the help of those nations who know the taste of true freedom, Israel will continue to be a positive strength, which is sorely needed in the Mid-East.

I believe God Almighty has His hand in preserving and caring for the people of Israel.  If we act on behalf of the people of Israel to strive to keep the peace of Jerusalem—to protect and keep Jerusalem as the rightful capitol of Israel, then Almighty God will bless us.

I remain optimistic for the vitality, the everlasting endurance and peace for the Jewish people.  Shana Tova Israel! We in America support you! 

Joel 3:1,2: “In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.”
