Best-selling American author and entrepreneur Harvey Mackay recently visited the IDF Home Front Command, learned about its training and life-saving missions abroad, and came away as another unofficial ambassador for the IDF.
Mackay, author of five New York Times best-selling business books, viewed a video documenting the IDF’s life-saving work in Haiti following the disastrous 2010 earthquake and commented, “It’s a shame that the whole world couldn’t see what I just saw with my own eyes. I had no idea that these miraculous things were performed in 12 countries,” he said, referring to the 17 aid delegations sent by the IDF to assist following natural disasters in a dozen different countries over the past 26 years.
“The one thing that’s apparent more than anything else on this tour is the incredible human value every Israeli has for [every single] life,” he added. “It’s one thing for them to say it, but if you look into their eyes attentively, you can see they really mean it.”
