WATCH: ‘Jerusalem in Ours,’ Say Hundreds of Jews Marching Around Old City

 

Source: WATCH: ‘Jerusalem in Ours,’ Say Hundreds of Jews Marching Around Old City | United with Israel

Several hundred people, Jews and non-Jews, participated in the annual march around the Old City of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the State of Israel.

Each year, Women for Israel’s Tomorrow, popularly known as Women in Green, a non-profit “dedicated to safeguarding our God-given biblical homeland,” leads a march around the Old City of Jerusalem on the eve of Tisha b’Av, when Jews commemorate the destruction of the Holy Temple.

Women in Green co-head Nadia Matar asks, “What is so special about this year’s event?”

In fact, she continues, why do Jews still mourn on Tisha b’Av, when they have the Jewish State of Israel?

What was the “terrible reminder” this year that tells us there is still so much to do to attain full sovereignty and why was this year’s walk so important?

Why is Jerusalem considered by some as the safest city in the world?

Watch the video to learn more about Jewish history and how it relates to current events in Israel and the Middle East.

    Why We Have Gods

    Mankind

    has been grasping

    for knowledge

    from the beginning,

    fear of the unknown

    was always forbidding.

    Why does the wind blow?

    Why does the sky

    crack open

    with light,

    sound and fury?

    Why do the oceans

    roil with

    such anger?

    How does

    the unknowing

    mind handle

    such things?

    Gods is what we said.

    It’s gods

    that make the

    unknown

    knowable.

    This work for us,

    it help it makes sense.

    As time went on

    we learned things,

    we learned why

    the wind blows,

    why the sky

    cracks open

    with light,

    sound and fury,

    and why

    the ocean roils

    with such anger.

    As our knowledge

    grew

    the gods

    began to melt away,

    so now for many

    at least

    there is just

    one.

    We have gathered

    great knowledge

    over time

    and have eliminated

    many gods

    along the way.

    One big question

    we’ve not yet answered,

    were do we go

    when we die?

    A great unknown

    to be sure.

    God is the answer

    for some.

    It helps them

    make sense.

    God is the one!

  2. John Prophet Says:

    Define God.

    What is God?

    What is a god?

    It’s all relative.

    It’s all semantics really.

    To those

    who wandered

    this globe

    fifty thousand years ago

    we’d be gods.

    Would those

    who live

    fifty thousand years

    from now be looked

    on as “Gods” by us?

    How far into the future,

    into the past

    or out into space

    would we need to peer to find

    the God.

    In fifty thousand years

    could we produce

    virtual constructs

    with artificially

    intelligent beings?

    If so,

    would we be

    their gods?

    Could these beings

    we produced evolve

    to create their own

    virtually intelligent beings?

    If so,

    how far down

    the rabbit hole

    could it possibly go?

    How many layers

    of gods

    could their possibly be?

    Perhaps more than can be

    possibly known!
