Naw, I'm 25% Lebanese. My grandmother on my mother's side is from Lebanon. I just felt like mentioning that for the sole reason that you said you were Israeli. ^_^

こんいちは ジェイムズさん ^_^

You should all learn how to spell kon'nichiwa. It's こんにちは (ko-n-ni-chi-ha)

But anyways,

こんにちは

おれはデイヴィッドです

バイバイ

I knew how to spell it, I guess it was just a TPYO. :)

今日は means today, not hello.

Kon = 今 = This/The present
Nichi = 日 = Day
Wa = は = Topic marker particle.

Literary (Or whatever): 'Present day',
Meaning: 'Hello',

Don't teach me anything before you teach yourself! For kanji practice, click the kanji link under 'Navigation', to your left.

Daisuke is correct. 今日は means hello.

Of course, you're not far off. 今日 means today.

The difference between the two is は if you notice. It's a simple mistake and one that is quite easy to make if close attention isn't paid.
