Dear Sean Hannity,

Not since “Schindler’s List” have so many names aspired to appear on a piece of paper as they aspired to appear on this thank you letter to you. Schindler’s list was 1200 strong and below you will also find 1200+ deeply grateful signatories—among them is the legendary Jackie Mason.

Mr. Hannity, on behalf my grassroots movement, GA-GA for Israel, our members and the 1200+ individuals of both the Christian and Jewish faiths, I would like to extend a profound thank you for your courageous and unrelenting support of the State of Israel. Your recent reporting from the Jewish Homeland was first class–as are you–and it offered a purview of Israel that other journalists rarely dare to show.

Sadly, amongst the casualties of this war launched by Hamas, is the truth, a casualty that even the wholly capable care not to resuscitate. But with God-like perseverance, you’ve done well to breathe life back into it, to resurrect it. You took your viewers on a brave and heartfelt journey from Hamas’s terror tunnels to Israeli-playground bomb shelters, from historic sights to the broken heart of an Israeli mother whose son was kidnapped and killed by Hamas.

In an ever increasing anti-Semitic world that is set on vilifying Israel, you humanized it and showed not only the duress under which Israelis are living as they scramble to bomb shelters and awake to sirens, but you also showed what a beautiful country it really is, God’s gem, proverbially flowing with milk and honey.

They say Israel has nine Iron Domes, but you Mr. Hannity are the tenth one as you persistently knock the lies and misinformation out of the air and shield Israel with the full force of your integrity, beliefs and honest news coverage. There is an expression in the Talmud which says, “If there are no men among you, BE ONE.” You have certainly stood out to be that man and a veritable mensch in an ever-growing gutless world where moral equivalencies are made between the victims and the perpetrators.

 

The State of Israel, America’s greatest ally, often feels like a single candle flickering in a tsunami of hate determined to snuff her out. And yet Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle East, one with a free and open press, one that protects the rights of women, minorities, homosexuals and all faiths unlike their surrounding neighbors who beat women into submission, stone adulterers, kill gays and burn down churches and oppress Christians. On a daily basis Israel is innovating world changing cures and technologies, from 3D printing to the endoscopy pill, PillCam, to devices that help the wheelchair-bound walk and the blind see. The Israeli army is among the first responders post-natural disasters around the globe, including after the earthquake in Haiti where their assistance was indispensable. If only Israel’s enemies would engage themselves in such positive pursuits instead of perpetually conspiring to wipe Israel off the map, they would certainly do better for themselves and their people. Instead of laboriously digging tunnels to import weapons of terror, which they launch indiscriminately at civilian targets, let them build infrastructure and a future for the next generation of Palestinians. If a tree grows in Brooklyn it can grow in Gaza too, if only they’d plant one!

And so Mr. Hannity it is with the deepest of gratitude, appreciation and reverence that we thank you for your support, your decency and your valiance and for seeing that aforementioned beauty in Israel that too many choose to ignore. Your actions have truly resonated in our hearts and your steadfast friendship gives us great comfort that we do not stand alone. May God’s own words be the last here and fill all your days, “I will bless those who bless you.”

  1. Mazal tov to Aliza for initiating such a successful and important campaign. With calls for Jews to be thrown back in the ovens and antsemitisim swelling across the globe, Israel, Jews, and ALL freedom loving people must say thank you to their friends. Aliza this is kiddush Hashem.

  2. Don’t you ever feel embarrassed about posting your messages while still incarcerated in the insane asylum? When your schizophrenia gets under control, then we can talk and you can apologize for your comically foul lies.

  3. It’s amazing as always – when Jews are under the very real threat of genocide – that some of my fellow American Jews so contemptuously – and contemptibly – spit on our friends who are trying to help us survive – friends like the wonderful Sean Hannity (and Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck and Michele Bachmann etc.) while worshipping their anti-Semitic Marxist false messiah 0bama. Why is self-hating mental illness so common among American Jews? No matter, the leftists who are so common among them are imploding due to their embrace of abortion and same-sex marriage. American Jewry in two generations will look a lot different – more traditional and respectful of American values, based on Torah values.

  4. Israel’s disengagement and eviction from the Gaza Strip began on Wednesday, August 17, and ended on Tuesday, August 23, 2005. On that SAME DAY, Tropical Depression 12 formed and then quickly became Hurricane Katrina, a fierce and enormous Category 4 hurricane that hit Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama – devastating the city of New Orleans. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon saw the largest eviction of Jews in Israel’s history, and President Bush saw the largest natural disaster and displacement of people in U.S. history. Nine thousand Israelis were evicted by their government. Shortly thereafter, one million Americans were evicted by Hurricane Katrina.
    TODAY IS THE 9TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REMOVAL OF THE JEWS OUT OF GAZA. REMEMBER, HASHEM DOES NOT SLEEP NOR SLUMBER. SHALOM EVERYONE – PASS IT ON. KEEP THE MEMORY ALIVE.

  5. Ali Saif you have been very deceived. I pray that Jesus meets with you in a dream and tells you the truth of the gospel of the kingdom GOD and shows you HIS love for you. GOD bless you with HIS peace so you will know true freedom and happiness

  7. There needs to be more honest journalists and TV reporters such as Sean Hannity. The media profession, if you can call it that, should be ashamed of its dishonest and biased reporting against Israel that encouraged Hamas to use its citizens as human shields.

  9. My husband and I watched Sean ‘ s series on Israel – we appreciated his approach and we’re thrilled that many who do not follow what’s going on in the region will now have a better picture of the truth! Thanks Sean and g-d bless your efforts.

  10. You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God…But you will be called, “My delight is in her,” On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen;
    All day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; And give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth (Isaiah 62:3; 6). One of the poetic names of Jerusalem is, “Kiriyah Aliza”, “The Joyful City”. Aliza Davidovit, by her words helps God in the fulfillment of His own. By her actions, she has become a crown and diadem of Zion’s light and beauty. By her own name, she reminds all of us of a glorious and promised future.

  11. This is GREAT! A s an IDF veteran, I love, admire and appreciate Mr. Hannity’s heroic commitment to the truth re Israel. I applaud Ga Ga thanking him as I do as well. As a statement of solidarity with Israel I’ve now started my Israeli last name; Jon Stevens ALON. Why did I change my name? Temporary INSANITY. I’m proud more than ever of Israel and our greatest asset and treasure, the IDF boys and gilrs serving our homeland with honor and heroism.

  12. There are a number of positions espoused by Mr Hannity that I completely disagree with (e.g. – his encouragement of everyone owning and carrying guns in the public square, and his resistance to any limit on the kind of firepower that should be available to a private citizen). But I will tip my hat to him re: his resolute defense of the State of Israel and all that it stands for.
