Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”
I beg you, Please listen to the beautiful voice of Yedida Freilich as she tells us the Bloody Truth about the UN and Israel.
Also watch her as she condemns the UN approval of non-member status for the Palestinians in the wake of the blizzard of rockets they fired at Israel leading up to The Gaza OP. I titled it BRILLIANT AND BEAUTIFUL
This question my surprise you, Is the US (gov’t) a Friend or Enemy of Israel?, I am sure you will find the article and the answer of great interest.
Finally I would ask you to visit Israpundit regularly to get up to the minute news on Israel/US relations
Here Is a Real Star.
Kate Smith was born and grew up in Columbia, Missouri. In early 1940, Kate Smith, a fiercely patriotic American, and the biggest star on radio, was deeply worried about her country.
She asked Irving Berlin if he could give her a song that would re-ignite the spirit of American patriotism and faith. He said he had a song that he had written in 1917, but never used it.
He said she could have it. She sat at the piano & played it and realized how good it was. She called Mr. Berlin and told him that she couldn’t take this from him for nothing.
So, they agreed that any money that would be made off the song would be donated to the Boy Scouts of America . Thanks to Kate Smith and Irving Berlin, the Scouts have received millions of dollars in royalties. This clip is from the movie “You’re in the Army Now”. You will see a familiar face (near the very end) in this one that we are all very proud of.
Frank Sinatra said that when Kate Smith, whom he considered the greatest singer of his age, first sang this song on the radio, a million guys got ‘dust’ in their eyes and had to wipe the tears the ‘dust’ caused. If you can watch and listen without ‘dust’ getting in your eyes, you have no soul. Sit back and enjoy a Real Star.
