    Not sure if all the Twittering & tweeting, Blogging and PR campaigns could ever convince all the gentiles in the world and their goyishe-kop leaders to see it from the point of view of classical Judaism, as this 45 minute video from various brief encounters the last Lubavitcher Rebbe had with various politicians, journalists and movers and shakers shows that the bottom line for Torah Jews is to place their faith only in Hakadosh Baruch Hu.

    This video very instructive and enlightening (minus the obvious pro-Chabad angle in it, but it has enough of a generally instructive usefulness) as it comes from a major Rebbe who was willing to speak his mind on the issues that are now on the front burner given Obama's pressures and the muddled responses of some Israeli leaders: ארץ ישראל השלימה. (In Yiddish, Hebrew and English with subtitles in English. Really takes you into the heart of those encounters with famous people coming to see the Lubavitcher Rebbe.)
