"and they loved not their lives unto the death". Revelation 12:11. it not about lives nor death, it simply about their love... loving truth, respecting lives even that of their enemies... to be, is: the obedience of Abraham, leaving rich Haran for Canaan when G-D called... the grief of David, as he rent his clothes and mourned for Saul's death... the prayers in tears of Jeremiah the prophets who fear the L-RD... yet to be human, is not limited to those recorded in the Scripture, but also to many unsung, unrecorded Jews in past, present, future, not just in Israel but round the world. Can there be such a thing as an Israeli "human"? who are not? let he that is sinless amongst you cast ye the first stone... toda, Haaretz, toda, Bradley. toda, my beloved L-RD G-D Almighty!
