Not Hercules, Not Rambo, Not even Superman. These are not the heroes of Israel. The heroes of Israel were the people placed on this earth that chose to live their lives for the benefit of something bigger than they were. Israel. The dream of freedom, the dream of Jewish sovereignty in their homeland, and the dream of bringing Israel and the Jewish Nation to it's destiny, being a light unto the nations. They are winners. They are winners because though life may be harder due of the choices they made, they know they are doing the right thing, and a good thing. Having children is hard. But it is good. Being kind is often hard, but it is good. Working diligently is hard, but it is an important ethic to have. These people who often pay a high price for their dedication, are the real heroes of Israel because they are the salt of the earth. They are the ones who don't just talk, they do. They settle the Land that has sat desolate for 2,000 years. They have turned it around to produce fruits and vegetables, family neighborhoods and jobs and schools and parks and all around beauty. They have brought LIFE back to the Land. They are the 'Dry Bones' that have grown sinews and flesh around them and have been given the breath of life (see Ezekiel chapt. 37) These heroes serve in the army to protect the nation from its enemies. Their children are the most motivated and idealistic of any population in Israel as a whole. Their bodies, their homes, their presence is the buffer zone for the most populated cities in Israel.
Long live the Heroes of Israel.
