Cheer up.

Things are much better than we appreciate.  We tend to lose
perspective. I got this from an anonymous Israeli woman.
I'm not sure why she doesn't to be known. I'd put my name on
it.

Cheer Up, Israel
I am not the least afraid to go any place, By bus or to a
mall. I didn't change or stop doing anything I used to do
before this mess began!

People tend to forget that twice the casualties from terror
get killed on the roads! More people still die From heart
attacks, cancer, and other things. They just don't show them
on TV.

Don't misunderstand me, there is a war going on and it’s not
pleasant. But, lets face it:

WE HAVE NEVER BEEN BETTER OFF!!!!

It's only TV and the media that make people think that the
end of the world is coming.

Only 60 years ago, they were leading Jews to their death like
sheep to the slaughter!

No Country, No Army. 55 years ago!! Seven Arab countries
declared war On the small Jewish State, Only a few hours old!!

We were then 650,000 Jews! Against the rest of the Arab world!
No IDF [Israel Defense Force]. No mighty Air Force. Just tough
people with nowhere to go.

Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia,
attacked all at once.

The country the UN "gave us" was 65% desert.The country
started from scratch!

35 years ago we fought the three strongest armies in the
Middle East, and wiped them out in six days.

We fought against different coalitions of Arab countries,
with modern armies, And masses of Soviet Russian weapons, and
we still won!!!

We have today a country, an army, a strong Air Force, a Hi-
Tech economy, exporting millions.

Intel - Microsoft - IBM develop their stuff here. Our
doctors win world prizes for medical developments.

We made the desert flourish, selling oranges and vegetables
to the world.

Israel has sent its own satellite into space!! Three
satellites all together!!

We sit proudly, with the US, with 250 million people,with
Russia, with 200 million people, with China, with 1.1 billion
people, with the Europeans -- France, England, Germany, with
350 million people. The only countries in the world to shoot
something into space!!

Israel today is in the world nuclear power family with the
US, Russia, China, India, France, and England. [We don't admit
it, but every one knows...]

To think that only 60 years ago, We were led, shameful, with
no hope, to our death!!

We crawled out of the burning ashes of Europe. We won our
wars here with less than nothing in our hands. We built an
"empire" out of nothing.

Passover was celebrated - Let's not forget what the story
is all about. We overcame Pharaoh, we overcame the Greeks,
we overcame the Romans, we overcame the Inquisition in Spain,
we overcame the Pogroms in Russia, we overcame Hitler, we
overcame the Germans, we overcame the Holocaust, we overcame
the armies of the seven Arab countries and we overcame Saddam.

Take it easy, folks, We will overcome the present enemies too.

No matter which part of human history you try!

Think of it, for us, the Jewish people, our situation has
never been better!!!

So, Let's Lift our Heads High, Let's Remember: Any nation or
culture that tried to mess around with us was destroyed,
while we kept going!!!

Egypt? Anyone know where their empire disappeared to?

The Greeks? Alexander of Macedonia?

The Romans? Does anyone today speak Latin?

The Third Reich? Anyone heard any news about it lately?

And look at us. The Nation from the Bible. From Slavery in
Egypt, we are still here. Speaking the same language!! Right
here, right now.

The Arabs don't know it yet, But, they will learn that there
is one God.

As long as we keep our identity, We are eternal. So, sorry
for not worrying. Not bitching, Not crying, Not being scared.

Things are O.K. here. They surely can be better,

But still: Don't fall for the media junk, They won't tell you
that there are festivals going on. That people keep on living.
That people are going out. That people are seeing friends.

Yes, our morale is low, so what? It's only because we weep for
our dead while they enjoy the blood.

This is the same reason why we will win, after all.

Tell friends that there is nothing to worry about. Tell them
to think BIG, and to see the whole picture.

"See You Next Year in Jerusalem."
