Don’t be afraid to say what you think! [VIDEO APPEAL]

There’s something very serene and right with talking about uncompromising self-defense of Israel near a peaceful waterfall. Here’s a poem I wrote to go along with the video:

Emerson says a real man must be a nonconformist
Self-reliance these days is the home of the Zionist

Israel is her own star, that rebel, ingenious mind
Sought after, choked, attacked by those unlike her kind

Let us be the Jewish star, alone but down from the altar
Scoff at self-sacrifice, the nonconformists should not falter

Place trust in the Truth, not in other men and brutes
Speak your mind, shine your light, for victory in all disputes
