    "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." Revelation 12:11. ... and they loved not their lives unto the death... is about "human" who recognized himself made in the image of the L-ORD G-D Creator. To talk about "hero" i rather not, but dwelt me on; can there be such a thing as an Israeli human, made in the Image of G-D? why not? can Israeli not laugh, not weep, not grief, not bled, not sin, not repent, not worship his Creator? To be human, simply not just to "die gloriously, heroicly"... simply to live. yet loved not my live unto the death... for greater is HE, greater is truth, greater is goodness, greater is righteousness, than my living or my death. Believing that: my L-RD forgives my enemies when i can't, holding on steadfastly even when your loved ones forced you to sin, bearing silently when the people all around you even one you respected most misunderstood you... is human. toda, Haaret
