About - Against All Odds - Israel Survives - 6 DVD Set

The purpose of this project in exploring miracles
Given the circumstances surrounding Israel's birth as a nation, and the odds against its survival, Israel should not exist as a nation today. Yet it not only exists, but seems to thrive in spite of its adversaries and in the face of circumstances that defy logic and reason. Why? How? This unique and dramatic motion picture and television experience with Israel goes beneath the facts of Israel's survival to explore the reasons Israelis themselves believe they have survived against all the odds against them. Not all attribute their military victories to divine assistance, but everyone agrees that the odds for Israel's survival through the turbulent twentieth century have defied all reasonable logic. As Rabbi Lau - Israeli's Chief Rabbi says - "It's a combination of G-d's blessings to the Jewish People and the grace of a Miracle that we more than survive we flourish". Or as Israel's first Prime Minister Ben Gurion said, "If you don't believe in Miracles, it is not practical to exist in Israel".

Journalist Michael Greenspan confronts military leaders, battle commanders, strategists, and common soldiers on the field who provide their viewpoints of remarkable stories of heroism and bravery...some that defy human understanding. Why, for instance, did an unstoppable armada of Syrian tanks bound for Tel Aviv at the start of the Yom Kippur War in 1973, suddenly stop just north of Tiberius and simply wait for the Israeli army to arrive so they could surrender without a fight? When an Israeli tank commander found himself and his men in the middle of a mine field, how was the prayer of one of his men suddenly followed by an unprecedented wind that blew away nearly a foot of topsoil and then just as suddenly stop, revealing the hiding places of thousands of mines so the soldiers could escape unharmed? Why, during the war for independence, did a battalion of Jordanian soldiers approaching the position of a handful of Israeli soldiers defending Mt. Zion without ammunition, suddenly shout "Abraham" and turn and flee? How could three dozen teenagers, survivors of the Holocaust, walk right past a company of Egyptian soldiers in the Negev without being seen? The fact that these and scores of other unexplainable occurrences fill the pages of every war in Israel is documented. The stories behind them have never been explored, till this motion picture story.

Features - Against All Odds - Israel Survives - 6 DVD Set

The national miracle of Israel
If there ARE miracles, Israel itself has to be one. Born out of the ashes of the Holocaust, it was just one day old when it was attacked by twelve armies that the world fully expected would annihilate it. Israel didnít even have an army. There was one tank and five cannon with which to fight back an Armada against them. And yet, Israel won. How?

Every time Israel has been attacked, Pentagon and Kremlin leaders have declared defeat as inevitable. In 1973, the odds of surviving were so impossible, prime minister Golda Meir considered suicide. The cabinet drew up plans for a government in exile. Complete annihilation was a certainty. At the last minute, American aid provided by a president known to be devoutly anti-Semitic provided the largest airlift of arms since World War II to save Israel. Why? When Saddam Hussein literally rained down scores of scud missles on Israelís cities during the Gulf War, not one person was killed. How do you explain that? The military experts at West Point wonít study Israelís wars because their outcomes are too impossible.

But the anomilies donít stop on the battlefield...How did Hebrew become the only dead language in history to be revived after 2,000 years? Why would millions of people from around the world leave their homes and move to a desert wasteland to build new lives for themselves? How did these people manage to turn a land more than 80% desert into one of the largest food and flower exporters in the world?

Why have incredible achievements in science, medicine, and new technologies happened here in greater concentration than anywhere else? There are no logical answers. Some say these things can only be explained as miracles.

Our journalistic approach to dealing with and investigating miracles
AGAINST ALL ODDS: In Search Of A Miracle seeks out credible individuals whose personal experiences or eye witness accounts of humanly unexplainable phenomenon cannot be dismissed as hearsay or the fantasies of someone of questionable mental acumen. When these individuals tell their stories, every effort is made to find corroborating testimony to confirm the experience. In telling the stories on the programs, Michael Greenspan conducts a one on one interview with these individuals, probes the natural possibilities that might be reasonable explanations for the phenomenon experienced and then allows the audience to draw their own conclusions as to whether or not what has been described was in fact a miracle or an explainable natural occurrence. If you have any doubts about this 6 DVD set for your family or School check the Reviews below. The TES staff notes that the material is too graphic for children under the age of 12.

JK History Buff (6/30/2008) wrote:
When the Roman General Vespasian and his son Titus smashed the city of Jerusalem and burned King Herod's (the Jewish) Temple, the Israelites (the Jews) ceased to be a nation. Those that survived were dispersed into the far reaches of the Roman Empire, a typical fate of any population that rebelled or defied the Roman government. The thinking was that a dispersed people would never again organize to rebel, and that they would cease to be identified as an ethnic group. Time alone would absorb them into the existing culture and forever erase their unique identity. But is was not to be. This is the true story as told by a CNN Investigative Reporter about G-d & Israel. This 9 hour DVD series must be seen. It has the capacity to bring out the best in us.

Israel returned as a nation on May 14, 1948, and many consider this to be a modern-day miracle. The reestablishment of Israel and its many battles with its hostile neighbors Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan, are documented in this 13-part series by Michael Greenspan. Greenspan uses each episode to document whether a "miracle" may have taken place in certain events in Israel's history. He documents Hitler's Holocaust and how this led to international sympathy for a Jewish state. He shows how the British Empire tried to suppress the establishment of the new state of Israel, and how the Jews drove Great Britain out of Israel. He documents in horrific detail the life of an Israeli woman spy who was captured in Lebanon and tortured in prison, and then later miraculously released (my favorite episode). Greenspan tells the story of the establishment of the nation of Israel in 1948, the 1956 war with Egypt and Syria, the 6-day war in 1967, and the retaking of Jerusalem in 1973 in the Yom Kippur war. All these wars are told from the perspective of certain individuals who encountered "miracle" conditions.

This is a compelling documentary. It is very well-done, mixing documentary information with dramatic reenactments of historical events. Greenspan does not directly answer his question of miracles, but leaves this up for the viewer to decide.

For anyone interested in the history of modern-day Israel, this is a most enlightening documentary that has faith implications as well as rich historical information.

I have enjoyed this series so very much, and have shared it with my friends. I intend on using it for a future Sunday School Class, as I believe that God has been, and is continuing to, supernaturally intervene in the history and future of the country of Israel.

Highly recommended.

I saw this series. This is the most touching,heart warming,inspiring, and emotional documentary about Israel and the miracles that have taken place in the lives of Israelis (soldiers,settlers,and everyone else). A Jewish reporter from New York goes to Israel to investigate reports of miracles in Israel. Makes me glad to be Jewish.

This has got to be one of the best documentaries ever made about Israel! It moved me through the spectrum of emotions, from tears to triumph and took my faith in God to ever deeper, stronger levels. Although I have read numerous "religious" accounts of overt supernatural intervention in Israel's modern history, it was thrilling to see a secular production handle this topic so fairly and honestly. The theme of this wonderful film might be: Friends of Israel, take heart; enemies of Israel, take note!

What a great product. I highly would recommend this box set. I heard about this series from the Christian Broadcasting Network and was blown away by the amazing stories. Within are the most remarkable interviews with people who were actually there. Shula Cohen's story was filled with great emotion and I found myself choking up a bit! Great value and my order got to me extremely fast! I am all the way in Djibouti Africa and I could not believe how promptly it arrived. Remarkable service from Kudos.
