Despite COVID travel restrictions, Jorge Diener, Executive Director of Hadassah International, and Andy Wiesner, Director of Special Projects for Hadassah International, traveled recently to Zürich for discussions with potential supporters of Hadassah about relaunching Hadassah Switzerland and building a Hadassah Europe without Borders network.. Hosted by Dr. Manno (Micky) Saks, a Member of the Board of Directors of Hadassah International and President of Hadassah Switzerland, Diener and Wiesner held very fruitful face to face meetings with members of the Jewish and business communities, talking about the work of the Hadassah Hospitals, and how the local community can support this work.. Interest in Hadassah has also been expressed by supporters in other German-speaking countries. A trip is now being planned to Wien and München to explore expansion into these areas.. While in Zürich, Diener and Wiesner were able to meet with the executors of the estate of an ardent Hadassah supporter who ...
The best seismologists in the world dont know when the next big earthquake will hit. But a Tel Aviv University geologist suggests that earthquake patterns recorded in historical documents of Middle Eastern countries indicate that the regions next significant quake is long overdue.. A major quake of magnitude seven on the Richter scale in the politically-fragile region of the Middle East could have dire consequences for precious holy sites and even world peace, says Tel Aviv University geologist Dr. Shmulik Marco. In light of this imminent danger, Marco, from the schools Department of Geophysics and Planetary Sciences, has taken an historical approach to earthquake forecasting by using ancient records from the Vatican and other religious sources in his assessment. The past holds the key to the future, he says.. All of us in the region should be worried, explains Marco, who dedicates his career to piecing together ancient clues.. Based on the translations of hundreds of documents -- some of ...

As a person who had gestational diabetes while pregnant with my first child, I was very interested in this new study which states that women who do not control their diet and do not exercise after diagnoses risk contributing to neurological delays in their babies.. The study, conducted by researchers at Ben-Gurion University and Soroka University Medical Center in Israel, observed women who delivered at that hospital between 1991 and 2014, and their children. Of the 230,000 women who had babies there during that period, 5.4% (12,642) developed gestational diabetes. Most women kept their glucose levels balanced through only by diet, but 2,566 also needed medication to stabilize the levels.. Only 1 percent of children whose mothers did not have gestational diabetes had neurological defects, but that number rose to 1.4% in those whose mother had the diabetes treated only by diet and exercise, and 1.7% in those whose mother only took medication.. The findings indicate that exercise and diet, ...
When Israel entered the Yom Kippur War a flood of volunteers arrive to Israel to help the war embattled nation. When the war ended most of the volunteers packed their bags and left back to their countries. At that time Prime Minister Golda Meir, in a speech in the Knesset, questioned the phenomenon: They come to fight our war and risk their lives for us but they will not stay to live among us?!. This is, for you, Hadassah hospital, opened in 1932 on Mount Scopus. Women and men from around the world, members of the Hadassah Woman Zionist Organization make sure the hospital delivers its duty to take care of Israels medical needs.. For nearly 100 years, Hadassah Medical Center has been a leader in medicine and nursing in Israel, laying the foundation and setting the standards for the countrys modern health care system. Hadassah has developed Israels community health services, established the first modern hospital and medical and nursing schools, and set the climate for medical research in ...
Israels Finance Minister signs waiver to allow the US embassy move to Jerusalem in time for Israeli Independence Day in May.. By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News. As a minister in the Israeli government, as a citizen of the State of Israel and as a Jew, there is nothing more worth working and striving for than to transfer the United States Embassy to Jerusalem, and officially receive recognition from our most important friends that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel.. So stated Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon on Wednesday when he signed a special waiver to cut through the bureaucratic red tape that would have delayed the transfer of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in time for Israels 70th birthday celebration. ...

To begin with, in their negotiations with Israel, Egypt and Jordan never asserted any territorial claims against the area of sovereign Israel. Unlike many Palestinians today, the Egyptians and the Jordanians harbor no aspirations to make Israeli cities, such as Haifa or Jaffa, part of their respective states. And whereas there are no Egyptian or Jordanian national minorities living within Israel, many Arab citizens of Israel identify themselves as Palestinian nationals. Operating among them are political, religious, and ideological forces dedicated to subverting the existence of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people. In 2006, for example, representatives from the National Committee for the Heads of the Arab Local Authorities in Israel issued a document entitled The Future Vision of the Palestinian Arabs in Israel, which calls for the introduction of consensual democracy in Israel, in which both the Palestinian and the Jewish nations would partner to govern Israel jointly -- the ...
The Geddes plan for Tel Aviv was the proposal of Patrick Geddes presented in 1925. By the time of his commission to plan Tel Aviv, Geddes had corresponded at length with members of the Zionist Commission and had already worked on a number of projects in Palestine including the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in partnership with his son-in-law Frank Mears. Geddes had impressed members of the Zionist Commission with his total lack of prejudice and had multiple admirers within the Zionist Commission. His evolutionary concept of cities alongside his valley section regional planning, was synergistic with the Zionist Commissions goal of both founding and historically contextualising a modern Hebrew settlement, helping to re-establish roots in the ancient homeland. Geddes 62-page plan for Tel Aviv, presented in 1925, linked the existing settlement of Tel Aviv (Ahuzat-Bayit) from Mapu Street (to the southwest) and extended across an area bordered by Borgrashov Street to the southeast, Ibn Gvirol ...
Today, Israel remains threatened by enemies that refuse to acknowledge her right to exist; enemies that far outnumber her and are determined to destroy her. Israels current battles seem more complex and unsolvable than ever. From blatant anti-Semitism and outright hatred of Israel, to more subtle forms of these; Israel is up against enemies in many different forms. Peace seems more out of reach than ever before. So, the questions must be asked: Will God show Himself faithful to Israel and win yet another victory for His people? And as Christians, what is our place in Israels modern battles? Join Jeff Futers in Israels capital city, Jerusalem, as he opens his Bible, and summons Christians around the world to align themselves with the truth about Israel. And as the words of Israels prophets are revisited, a Divine and ever-relevant call is heard; a call for Christians to take their place as guards of Jerusalem and to participate in yet another miraculous victory in Israel: when Gods hand ...
While some hospitals segregate Jewish and Arab mothers in maternity wards (see story) Shatils Citizens Forum for the Promotion of Health in the Galilee does just the opposite: it brings Jewish and Arab Israelis together to improve the dismal state of health services in northern Israel.. Last weeks second annual Galilee Conference on Health Equality, a major event sponsored by the Shatil Citizens Forum, brought excellent news: Dr. Adi Sasson, head of rehabilitation for the Ministry of Health, announced government plans to open an inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation department at the Galilees Poriya hospital. This a significant victory for health services in northern Israel, as there is currently only one inpatient rehabilitation facility in the area, with just 39 beds at the Nahariya Hospital, for a region of 1.3 million people.. The conference was hosted by the Shfaram Municipality - a major breakthrough in of itself, as events of this size and scope are rarely held in Arab ...

High blood pressure, or hypertension, affects everything from your arteries to your kidneys, from eyesight to sexual function. Among older adults, high blood pressure is also associated with cognitive decline as a result of interrupted blood flow to the brain, as well as strokes, heart attacks and impaired mobility.. A new Northwestern University-Tel Aviv University study has revealed that subjects who experienced relatively high blood pressure during young adulthood also experienced significant declines in cognitive function and gait in midlife (approximately 56 years old). The study cohort included about 200 young adults with an average age of 24 at the beginning of the study.. The research was led by Prof. Farzaneh A. Sorond and Dr. Simin Mahinrad of Northwestern Universitys Department of Neurology and Prof. Jeffrey Hausdorff of TAUs Sackler Faculty of Medicine, TAUs Sagol School of Neuroscience and Tel Aviv Medical Centers Center for the Study of Movement, Cognition, and Mobility at the ...
The battles over the Western Wall reflect the traditional clash between the policy of the State Department and other parts of the US government which are more sympathetic to Israeli policy in Jerusalem. Since the UN Partition plan of 1947 called on Jerusalem to be part of a special international regime administered by the United Nations, the US has never recognized Israeli sovereignty in any part of the city. The first US ambassador to Israel, James McDonald, was instructed not to attend the opening session of the Knesset in Jerusalem in 1949. If I were to go to Jerusalem to attend the function, that might be regarded as US tacit approval of the Israel claim to Jerusalem, he recalled in his memoirs, My Mission in Israel 1948-1951. US policy has changed since then, but not in its overall rejection of Israeli rights to the Kotel. Since the Oslo period, the US has indicated it would be willing to move its embassy and recognize Israeli rights in Jerusalem if Israel signed a peace agreement with ...
The Ethiopian Beta Israel community in Israel today comprises more than 121,000 people.[1] This is a little more than 1 percent of the Israeli population.[119] Most of this population are the descendants and the immigrants who came to Israel during Operation Moses (1984) and Operation Solomon (1991).[120] Civil war and famine in Ethiopia prompted the Israeli government to mount these dramatic rescue operations. The rescues were within the context of Israels national mission to gather Diaspora Jews and bring them to the Jewish homeland. Some immigration has continued up until the present day. Today 81,000 Ethiopian Israelis were born in Ethiopia, while 38,500 or 32% of the community are native born Israelis.[13] Over time, the Ethiopian Jews in Israel moved out of the government owned mobile home camps which they initially lived in and settled in various cities and towns throughout Israel, with the encouragement of the Israeli authorities who grant new immigrants generous government loans or ...

Traffic density in Israel is three times the average among the 36 industrialized countries of the OECD. Commuters lose on average an hour a day in traffic congestion, a hit to productivity that costs about $5 billion a year.. Since increasingly stringent coronavirus restrictions began in February, traffic has dropped about 85 percent, according to Israels national roads company. On the eve of the Passover holiday, one of the busiest times of year, Israel was under lockdown and traffic was just 1 percent of the usual level.. Some of the biggest and most crucial projects, like the final stretch of a new fast train between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem or the expansion of a highway in central Israel, will be finished six months to a year ahead of schedule because building was accelerated..

Thirty-two years ago, Israel signed a peace agreement with Egypt in which it undertook to recognize the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and to establish an autonomous authority in the WestBank and Gaza Strip within five years. Nothing happened.. Eighteen years ago the prime minister of Israel signed the Oslo Accords,in which Israel undertook to conduct talks in order to achieve a final-status agreement with the Palestinians, including the core issues,within five years. That, too, did not occur. Most of the provisions of the agreement have foundered since then - in the majority of cases because of Israel. What will Israels advocate at the UN say about this?. For years, Israel claimed that Yasser Arafat was the sole obstacle to peace with the Palestinians. Arafat died - and once again nothing happened. Israel claimed that if only the terror were to stop, a solution would appear. The terror stopped - and nothing. Israels excuses became increasingly empty and the naked truth was ...
Groundbreaking TAU study tracks precise path of deadly virus to the central nervous system. Rabies causes acute inflammation of the brain, producing psychosis and violent aggression. The virus, which paralyzes the bodys internal organs, is always deadly for those unable to obtain vaccines in time. Some 55,000 people die from rabies every year.. For the first time, Tel Aviv University scientists have discovered the exact mechanism this killer virus uses to efficiently enter the central nervous system, where it erupts in a toxic explosion of symptoms. The study, published in PLOS Pathogens, was conducted by Dr. Eran Perlson and Shani Gluska of TAUs Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Sagol School of Neuroscience, in collaboration with the Friedrich Loeffler Institute in Germany.. Rabies not only hijacks the nervous systems machinery, it also manipulates that machinery to move faster, said Dr. Perlson. We have shown that rabies enters a neuron in the peripheral nervous system by binding to a ...

Canada is represented in Israel by the Embassy of Canada to Israel in Tel Aviv. The Government of the State of Israel is represented in Canada by an embassy in Ottawa and consulates in Montréal, Quebec, and Toronto, Ontario.. Canada and Israel have strong, multidimensional bilateral relations, marked by close political, economic, social and cultural ties. Support for Israel, especially its right to live in peace and security with its neighbours, has been at the core of Canadas Middle East policy since 1948.. One of the underlying strengths of the Canada-Israel bilateral relationship lies in the extensive people-to-people ties. There are approximately 35,000 Canadian citizens living in Israel and nearly 90,000 Canadians, many with family in Israel, travel to the country every year. The Canadian-Jewish community, which numbers around 350,000, serves as an integral bridge between Canada and Israel. These informal ties give rise to significant cooperation between our two countries in business, ...
An interview with Jonathan Cook Five Books - 25 February 2014Interviewed by: Bethan Staton Outside of the Middle East, many people understand Palestine to mean the West Bank and Gaza, and Palestinians as the people living in these areas. But Palestinians who remained in Israel after the creation of the state in 1948 - when some 700,000 were displaced in the Nakba or catastrophe - now make up around 20% of Israels population. Could you explain a bit more about this community, and why it has been overlooked? The difficulty for Palestinians remaining in what becomes Israel after 1948 is that the Palestinian national movement develops in exile, in the occupied territories and the neighboring Arab states. Palestinians in Israel are excluded and shielded from these developments and left in what amounts to a political and social ghetto. Israel strictly circumscribes their understanding of who they are and anything to do with their history, heritage and culture. Israel controls the education system, for
This is the Ministry responsible for both the Israel National Police (including the Border Police) and the Israel Prison Service. It oversees routine commission of serious human rights abuses and international law violations against the Palestinian people, and racism and violence directed at minorities within Israel. These well documented violations include brutal killings, the torture and imprisonment of children, medical negligence of political prisoners, home demolitions, persecuting human rights defenders, violent racism, and the entrenchment of Israel s illegal settlements (the Ministry itself is even located in a settlement).. These abuses and violations committed by the Israel National Police and the Israel Prison Service under the watchful eye of the Ministry are not abnormal or cases of bad apples , but are a vital, calculated, routine, and systemic part of the Israeli state s wider system of oppression of the Palestinian people.. Any collaboration with this Ministry by police forces in ...
International law defines occupation as one power occupying the lands of a foreign sovereign. In Israels case, Israel is not occupying any foreign sovereigns land; Israel entered the area known as the West Bank in 1967 and took over the authority to administer the land from Jordan, which was never considered to be a sovereign in the area.. In actual fact, Israel and the Jewish people have got claims to the area that go far back into history. Anybody who reads the Bible can appreciate the fact that there is a very solid historic legal basis to the claim of Israel with respect to the territories and therefore Israel considers the territories not to be occupied, not to be Palestinian, but as in dispute.. We appreciate that the Palestinians also have claims with respect to the territory. Israel considers that its claims are far better based and better documented than any other claims, but Israel is committed to conduct negotiations with the Palestinians in order to find a permanent settlement to ...
Tel Aviv, June 14 - A resident of Israels second-largest city admitted surprise today after being informed that the 2017 Pride Parade took place last Friday, as he had not noticed anything out of the ordinary for Tel Aviv to indicate something distinct was occurring there at the time.. Ofer Pitsek, 30, confessed his chagrin today upon discovering that the largest Pride Parade in the Middle East took place within several kilometers of his home and workplace, and he took no notice. The software engineer told reporters that while he definitely encountered signs of the parade taking place, only in retrospect did it become clear that those indications pointed to the Pride Parade taking place and not to Tel Avivs typical milieu.. Yeah, Im a little embarrassed - its sort of a big deal, he allowed with a sheepish grin. But its not as if there arent a billion rainbow flags, flamboyant characters, loud music, and millions of other parts of the Tel Aviv scene already present. How was I supposed to ...

Beer Sheva (also spelled Beersheba, Hebrew באר שבע) is a desert city of approximately 200,000 inhabitants in southern Israel. It is the sixth largest city in the country and is very much the gateway to the Negev region of Israel. The city is spread out by Israeli standards, as there is no shortage of land in the desert, and there isnt much of a downtown, except for a few streets in the old Turkish quarter. While Beer Sheva is mostly middle class, it does have three wealthy satellite suburbs with manicured landscapes, private villas and a Palm Springs feel to them: Omer, Metar and Lehavim. A few Bedouin villages surround the city as well. Some feature tribal attractions which are worth a visit, including Rahat, Tel Sheva, Hura and Laqiya. In Beer Sheva itself, some modern/experimental architecture was built in the 1960s. Today, this is found mostly in government and public buildings, including the Ben Gurion University and Soroka Hospital

This article first appeared Lubbock Avalanche-Journal at Lubbockonline.com. Submitted by Donald R. May. President Obama continues his visible opposition to Israel and his support of Islamic countries that oppose Israel.. Our close military ally Israel has been purchasing ammunition, missiles, and other military supplies directly from the Pentagon. While Israel was confronting Hamas in the Gaza Strip last month, the Obama Administration discovered Israels working relationship with the Pentagon and has now slowed the supply process in an apparent effort to better control Israel. Jihad Watch reported,. Each transfer will no longer go directly through the Pentagon, but must now be approved by the State Department and the White House, giving Secretary Kerry and President Obama direct control on every transfer. The new procedure has had the affect of delaying the transfer of precision strike hellfire missiles to Israel in a time of war. The administration clearly intends to use such transfers as ...

In the late spring of 2020, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Israel. His visit came after Israel formed a coalition government between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus Likud and Benny Gantzs Blue and White Party. Pompeo, while endorsing Israels rights to Judea and Samaria, had a blunt message for his Israeli friends: Beware of China. Pompeo added, We dont want the Chinese Communist Party to have access to Israeli infrastructure, Israeli communication networks, and the kind of things that endanger the Israeli people and the ability of the US to cooperate with Israel.. Pompeos gently expressed admonition to Israeli officials was not new. In the 1990s, the US pressed Israel to cancel a deal to sell the Phalcon Intelligence surveillance aircraft to China. Israel backed down, and was compelled to return the $250 million to Beijing that the Chinese had invested in the project.. For Israel, the situation was terribly uncomfortable. It was forced to choose between its closest and ...

The recent events in Israel are very disconcerting and we are praying for those under attack who have to keep running to their bomb shelters. Our hearts go out to those who are undergoing these harrowing attacks and living in these dangerous times. Complexity exists in our beloved Israel. The Muslim Brotherhood instigated riots on the Temple Mount as part of Ramadan. Jewish activists then aggravated the situation by claiming property in Arab East Jerusalem. The Hamas organization in Gaza decided to support the rioters by shooting over 1000 rockets into Central Israel. Arab and Jewish riots began in cities across the country. Arab rioters have blocked many of the major highways and burned down numerous synagogues.. The Israeli military has two major objectives. One is to quell the civil disturbances inside the country. Second is to inflict heavy damage on the infrastructure of Hamas and eliminate much of its top leadership, especially in technology and intelligence. The situation is very ...

The OIC also warned that recognising Jerusalem or establishing any diplomatic mission in the disputed city would be seen as a blatant attack on the Arab and Islamic nations.. The status of Jerusalem is one of the most contentious issues of the long-running Israeli-Palestinian conflict.. Most of the international community, including the United States, does not formally recognise Jerusalem as Israels capital, insisting the issue can only be resolved through final-status negotiations.. Central to the issue of recognition is the question of whether Trump decides to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.. All foreign embassies are located in Tel Aviv with consular representation in Jerusalem.. Israelis and Palestinians are eagerly watching to see whether he again renews a waiver delaying the move, as his predecessors have done.. There are suggestions that Trump will sign the waiver and decline to move the embassy for now, but later this week declare Jerusalem as Israels capital.. Israel, ...

Last year the New Zealand singer Lorde cancelled a concert in Tel Aviv following an open letter by two New Zealand-based activists urging her to take a stand on Israels illegal occupation of Palestine. A few weeks later, the two activists - Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab - found themselves the subject of a civil claim brought in the Israeli court. The claim was brought by the Israeli law group Shurat HaDin, on behalf of three minors who had bought tickets to the concert, pursuant to Israels so-called Anti-Boycott Law (the Law for the Prevention of Damage to the State of Israel through Boycott). The Anti-Boycott Law provides that a person who makes a public call to boycott Israel commits a civil wrong and may be sued for damages (s 1). According to newspaper reports, Shurat HaDin claimed that the defendants call for boycott harmed the teenagers artistic welfare. A few days ago, the Magistrates Court in Tel Aviv released a judgment upholding the claim and ordering the activists to pay ...
By JLNJ Staff. (Courtesy of Sheba Medical Center) Israels Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer, announced that it is the first institution outside of North America to join a network of specialized clinics accredited by the Chicago-based Angelman Syndrome Foundation.. Angelman syndrome is a rare, complex and often misdiagnosed neuro-genetic disorder affecting the nervous system. Occurring approximately once in every 15,000 live births, Angelman syndrome affects all populations equally, and there is no cure at this time.

As a result of escalating events airspace closures have been reported over northern Israel, as well as multiple Israeli air defense warning sirens sounding at the Golan Heights and throughout lower and upper Galilee.. Israels Ben Gurion international airport outside of Tel Aviv was also reportedly on lockdown for some period of time after the exchange of fire between Syrian and Israeli forces. Meanwhile, the Israeli military has blamed close Syrian ally Iran for todays F-16 shoot down and escalation.

The IDF is ready for various scenarios and will continue to act according to situation assessments.. And according to a statement issued to the AFP, Israel says Iran and Syria are playing with fire but that Israel does not want escalation. However, regional media reports indicate Israel has continued to ...

The office of Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, issued an official statement defending the demolition of East Jerusalem Arab Hotel Shepherd, and challenging international condemnations in this regard. The Hotel, located in Sheikh Jarrah Arab neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, was demolished by Israel on Sunday. In the statement, Netanyahu said that Jews must be encouraged to buy property in East Jerusalem, and should be allowed to rent or buy property especially in neighborhoods that have Jewish majority. He added that nobody should expect Israel to prevent the Jews from buying private property in Jerusalem. There isnt a single democratic government in the world that has ever prevented the Jews from buying property, Netanyahu said, Nobody should expect Israel to start doing that.. The Hotel is owned by members of the Al Husseini family, an Arab-Palestinian family, indigenous to East Jerusalem. Meanwhile, EU Foreign Chief, Catharine Ashton, slammed the demolition of the ...

On 17 June 2012, a plane carrying over 120 South Sudan nationals left Tel Aviv for Juba, the capital city of the new state of South Sudan. This was the first flight in what the Israeli government called Operation Returning Home. In the months that followed, a further six flights would airlift a total of 1,038 South Sudanese to Juba.[1]. Israel regards Sudan as a hostile state. Upon arrival in Israel, all Sudanese nationals, including those from Southern Sudan, were termed hostile nationals until the time when South Sudan became an independent state. However, until June 2012, individuals from any part of Sudan were covered by the policy of non-removal, allowing them to reside temporarily in Israel. Their residence was legal but their individual claims for asylum were not examined in accordance with the 1951 Convention to which Israel is a signatory. Hence, although many Southern Sudanese coming to Israel held a UNHCR refugee registration card issued in Egypt, Israel did not recognise them as ...
July 17, 2016 - wo soldiers were killed on Sunday morning after a grenade exploded in the Golan Heights near them in the Hermon mountains. Another three soldiers, from the the 401 IDF artillery unit, were taken to Rambam hospital in Haifa in serious and light-to-moderate condition.. One of the soldiers who was killed was reserve soldier Staff Sgt. Husam Tafash from Beit Jann, a Druze village on Mount Meron in northern Israel. The other soldier killed was lone soldier Sgt. Shlomo Rindenow from the combat engineering unit, a lone soldier who lived on Kibbutz Sde Yoav in south-central Israel. His brother lives in Netzer Hazani in central Israel while his parents live in New Jersey. Rindenow was one of ten children. Both families have been notified. Some of the injured were reserve soldiers.. An initial investigation stated that around 7:10am on Sunday morning, the military patrol jeep came from a routine brush cleaning operation on the border with Syria. The jeep approached an IDF outpost on the ...
Considering Israels accomplishments in science, agriculture, irrigation, pharmaceuticals and more, boycotting Israel is a crime against humanity. Israel, with all its problems is still a good country to live in and one to be proud of.. These arent easy days and it wasnt an easy year. The Arab spring is turning out to be a bumpy ride for those who staged it and for those hoping it will bring about change. The social protest in Israel, the largest the country has ever seen, exposed gaps and social grievances and led to high expectations of change that will likely not come to fruition. Israels diplomatic isolation is increasing and every speech Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu makes is met with a long list of columnists and commentators denouncing him as a warmonger.. This is the background to a visit from our friends, a middle class family from a large city in France, with good jobs and a nice apartment. They visit Israel every year, and by now have picked up some Hebrew. Last month they ...
Despite the sacred security coordination between the PA and the Israeli security services, even in suppressing the growing protest movement in the West Bank that is calling for lifting the PAs unjust sanctions against the Palestinians in Gaza, Israels disregard for the protests is obvious. Israels officials, spokespeople and even media have ignored the remarkable popular movement, which some analysts expect to expand to reach all areas with a Palestinian presence across the world. Does this disregard reflect Israels underestimation of the importance and impact of this movement? Or does it mean Israel is taking it seriously, as a matter of national security, and subject to the consideration of military control and monitoring?. Israel has shown its exaggerated willingness to pursue any movement or anything seeming like a movement that could affect its security in the West Bank. Therefore it is highly unlikely that its official and unofficial disregard for the escalating protest movement is a ...
Israel this week officially unveiled a not-so-secret secret weapon it has been working on with the US defense industry for some years.. The entry into service of the Davids Sling anti-missile system completes Israels multi-tier missile shield.. Already for years the Iron Dome has been protecting southern Israel from short-range rockets and mortar shells.. The Arrow system recently went into service to defend Israel against long-range ballistic missiles. It was utilized a week ago to defend Israeli warplanes on a mission over Syria from enemy anti-aircraft.. Davids Sling is intended to fill the gap between the Iron Dome and the Arrow by knocking down the type of medium-range missiles of which Lebanons Hezbollah is believed to have tens of thousands.. With this multi-tier missile shield in place, Israels enemies are unlikely to do much damage to her, but would not survive a serious Israeli counterattack.. And thats why Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned during the ceremony for the ...

I wouldnt mind swapping hostile Arab areas in Israel for annexing much of Judea and Samaria. The catch of course is the Arabs will never accept an arrangement that would divest Israel of a hostile Arab population and which leaves Israel with more Jews and more secure borders. That is not the point of pushing for a Palestinian reichlet. The point is its a way station towards Israels eventual destruction. It doesnt need to come all at once. All the Arabs are asking now for is a down payment and they can make more demands later. At no point will the Arabs agree to ever end the conflict. If Israels leaders are so stupid as to agree, it would become G-d forbid, a self-fulfilling prophecy. Or perhaps Israels leaders do not want to leave the state to real Jews - such as yourself, Carl. They can always retire abroad after the dirty work is done.. ...
Following World War II, Britain withdrew from its mandate of Palestine, and the UN proposed partitioning the area into Arab and Jewish states, an arrangement rejected by the Arabs. Nonetheless, an Israeli state was declared in 1948, and Israel subsequently defeated the Arab armies in a series of wars that did not end deep tensions between the two sides. (The territories Israel has occupied since the 1967 war are not included in the Israel country profile, unless otherwise noted.) On 25 April 1982, Israel withdrew from the Sinai Peninsula pursuant to the 1979 Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty. In keeping with the framework established at the Madrid Conference in October 1991, Israel conducted bilateral negotiations with Palestinian representatives and Syria to achieve a permanent settlement with each. Israel and Palestinian officials on 13 September 1993 signed a Declaration of Principles (also known as the Oslo Accords), enshrining the idea of a two-state solution to their conflict and guiding an ...

G-d willing, it will be beautiful, since the wild flowers have begun to bloom.. I blog much more frequently on Shiloh Musings and me-ander; please visit. And today, here Im posting about the importance of good titles and headlines. Rocket falls on Beersheba, What? Like Rain?. I hate these sorts of titles and headlines. The Jerusalem Posts article on the Arab attack on Beersheva made things worse by adding Following Katyusha fire in Negev... Do these things happen all by themselves, like spontaneous combustion? Nu? Who launched these weapons at Israel? I stress the who, because people, not chance, not G-d are guilty of attacking Israel and its civilians. But as much as I dislike the headline, at least its big news in the Jerusalem Post. I just checked the New York Times which at this moment, hours after the Arab attack on the main city of Israels south, there isnt a mention. Surprisingly, BBC has a better title to their article than the Jerusalem Post: ...
Earlier this week, Van Damme (whose real name is Jean-Claude Camille François Van Varenberg) visited Israel and posted a pic of himself wearing an Israel-emblazoned baseball hat on his Facebook page, along with the caption, Hello from Jerusalem, Israel. Thats laudable. But after getting a lot of comments and tweets from Jew-hating Muslims-and quite a few pro-Israel comments and more than 155,000 likes-Van Damme gave in to the Muslims and scrubbed his Facebook page of the Israel mention, with the page saying just, Hello from Jerusalem, instead. Whatta bleepin wimp! Jerusalem is the eternal Jewish capital and undivided capital of Israel, to which Muslims have no claim (and which is NEVER mentioned even once in the koran).. What makes Van Dammes cave-in to online Muslim terrorists even more disgusting is the fact that, if it werent for Israelis, you would never have heard of Van Damme. Hed be a nobody. Instead, as Ive noted previously on this site, Israeli cousins Menachem Golan (Of ...

AWARD-WINNING BRITISH POLITICAL WRITER SAYS ISRAEL SMELLS OF SHIT Last Thursday, Johann Hari, the leading political columnist for the British daily The Independent, received the (previously) highly prestigious Orwell Prize for political writing.. The 29-year-old Hari celebrated by writing a vicious attack on Israel.. In his column in The Independent this week, he writes: Whenever I try to mouth these words [of reassurance for Israel], a remembered smell fills my nostrils. It is the smell of shit. In his piece, Hari quotes fabricated information by the notorious anti-Zionist historian Ilan Pappe*, leaving readers to believe that Pappe s allegations are actually true.. And in a modern day poisoning of the wells blood libel, Hari accuses Israel of deliberately polluting West Bank groundwater supplies. Continuing his sewage analogy, Hari s concludes his piece: Israel, as she gazes at her grey hairs and discreetly ignores the smell of her own stale shit pumped across Palestine, needs to ask what kind ...
11:53AM: While an official recovery timeline wont be known until after the surgery, MLB.coms Mark Bowman (via Twitter) estimates that Soroka will be out for a full year, until July 2022.. 11:11AM: Braves right-hander Mike Soroka will undergo surgery to fix a torn Achilles tendon, the team announced (Twitter links). This will be the second season-ending Achilles procedure in as many years for Soroka, as according to the Braves announcement, he suffered a complete re-tear of the tendon while walking to the teams clubhouse on Thursday.. It is another brutal turn of events for Soroka, who already underwent exploratory surgery on his Achilles back in May. Atlanta manager Brian Snitker initially thought Soroka would be done for the season after that surgery, though more recent reports had the team hopeful that the righty could return to action some time in August.. The 23-year-old Soroka was a breakout star of the 2019 season, posting a 2.68 ERA, 20.3% strikeout rate, and 51.2% grounder rate ...
68 percent of the Jewish population in Israel fears the possibility that Israeli Arabs will begin a popular rebellion, while 63 percent do not enter Arab communities in Israel, according to a new poll issued this week by Haifa University. Meanwhile, 64.4 percent of Israeli Jewish citizens fear that the Arab citizens endanger national security because of their high birth rate, while 83.1 percent fear Israeli Arabs support of the Palestinians struggle and 73 percent believe that most of the Arab citizens will be more loyal to the state of Palestine than to the state of Israel. Clearly the Israeli Fifth Column is hard at work trying to tear the country apart -- and Iran is more than happy to help. ...
Shalom from Tel Aviv! Syria now speaks openly of preparing to attack Israel with her recently developed VX nerve gas. Israel has confirmed Syrias claims of possession. (Jerusalem Post, 9 May 97) This nerve gas is reported to be fatal upon breathing or even by touching the skin. In a recent poll, 75% of Israelis fear they would be hurt in a chemical weapons attack and Israels civil defense program against a chemical missile attack has been thrown into disarray. (Ibid.) Yet only 2.2 million of the 4.1 million eligible residents have collected or updated their gas masks. Now Israeli intelligence sources are saying that a few weeks ago the Syrians have managed to install VX nerve gas on a Scud C warhead. (Ibid) The armys Home Front Command researchers say a gas attack could kill about 2500. (Ibid) But that was before the reports on the new gas. Now analysts are saying a VX missile attack could kill as many as 25,000 Israelis. (Ibid) I have heard a sound of terror, Of dread, and there is no ...

He added that he doesnt believe that Israel needs to coordinate such moves with the Palestinian Authority. Zohar also expressed his opposition to a Palestinian state, saying such an entity will only lead to further terrorism in the region, while at the same time urged Palestinians to distance themselves from terror in order to peacefully co-exist with Israelis.. Maj. Gen. (res.) Gershon Hacohen, a senior research fellow at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, expressed his support for sovereignty, stressing the security importance for Israel having a permanent civilian and military presence in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.. Hacohen said it is impossible to protect Israels tiny, crowded coastal plain, where the majority of Israelis live from Hadera in the north to Gadera in the south, which at points is only between 15 and 20 kilometers (nine to 12 miles) wide, without having an Israeli presence in the mountains up above.. He added that the Jordan Valley is Israels natural ...
Its not that the gloves are coming off, its that the mask of diplomatic language is coming off, Goldberg said. Obama is more specific about the problems he sees down the road for Israel, about the demographics, how Israel is going to cease to be a Jewish democracy at a certain point and how hes having a harder time defending Israel in international organizations.. Goldberg said it seemed to him to be a question of whether Obama was unwilling or unable, but the U.S. president made it clear that it was not because of a lack of willingness, describing the undying support America will always have for Israel.. Goldberg paraphrased Obama as saying, Israel is growing more isolated and we cant defend it in the same way.. I took it to be a little bit of a veiled threat, to be honest, Goldberg said. Its almost up there with, you know, nice little Jewish state you got there, Id hate to see something happen to it.. It was, look, I want to help you, but youre not helping me help you, ...
At the same time, the Syrians virtually broke through Israels skinny defenses in the Golan Heights, but have been ultimately stopped by reinforcements and pushed back, adopted by a successful Israeli advance into Syria. Israel additionally gained the upper hand within the air and at sea early in the struggle.. one hundred,000 Israeli tourists go to Thailand annually.[215] Thousands of skilled and unskilled Thai staff are employed in Israel and lots of Thai students research in Israel.

The Other Side of Israel is the powerfully human story of a British Jew and once-passionate Zionist who moves to Israel and makes an extraordinary decision: to live her new life beyond the ethnic divide, as a lone Jewish woman in an all-Arab town.. Leaving London in the late 1990s to take up the Law of Return promised by Israel to Jews throughout the world, Susan Nathan is amazed to discover that one in five Israelis is not Jewish but Palestinian, the remnants of the countrys Arab population expelled in the 1948 war. She is even more shocked to find that none of her Jewish acquaintances have friends among their Arab fellow citizens. So she chooses to make a further journey across the countrys deep ethnic divide to live in Tamra, a town of 25,000 Muslims between Haifa and Nazareth in the Galilee.. Here she starts to see life in Israel through Arab eyes and experiences at first hand the daily discrimination exercised by the Jewish state against its Arab citizens - in education, employment, ...

First multi-disciplinary Parkinsons congress in Israel to mark Parkinsons Awareness Month discusses holistic approach to treatment. As part of Parkinsons Awareness Month, Israel held its first ever multidisciplinary congress on the disease, including doctors, patients, therapists, scientists and family members. The virtual event, which had an audience of approximately 1,000, was hosted by the Israel Parkinson Association in Israel and the Aufzien Family Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Parkinsons Disease at Tel Aviv University, which teamed up with the Ministry of Health and the Neurological Association of Israel, and other groups.. This has never happened in Israel and it is something to be proud of, Professor Nir Giladi, director of the division of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center - Ichilov Hospital, and co-director of the Aufzien center, told The Media Line.. Giladi says that including different stakeholders is important because it reflects ...
Israeli police have shot and killed two Palestinians who stabbed three Israeli pedestrians near Jerusalems Old City, the latest in violence carried out by Palestinians and Israeli defensive measures.. A police spokeswoman says one of the Palestinians shot in Wednesdays attack died at the scene and the other one at a hospital.. Medical officials say the three Israelis were seriously wounded.. The attack happened outside Jaffa Gate, a popular spot for tourists visiting Jerusalems Old City.. A campaign of stabbings, shootings and car-rammings by Palestinians in recent months has killed 19 Israelis and a U.S. citizen. Israeli forces or armed civilians have killed at least 118 Palestinians, most of whom authorities have described as assailants. Others died in clashes with Israeli security forces.. Also Wednesday, Israels Shin Bet intelligence agency said it arrested 25 Palestinians linked to the terrorist group Hamas for planning bombings and suicide attacks against Israelis.. The agency said it ...
ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCES announced Sunday that it had deployed tanks and artillery reinforcements to northern border with Syria. IDF warned that it would respond firmly to any threats to Israeli sovereignty as fighting between President Bashar Assads regime forces and rebel groups across the border in southern Syria intensified.. The IDF said that the deployment of reinforcement to the Golan Heights came in response to a situation assessment by the armys Northern Command and as part of the IDFs efforts to remain prepared and ready in the face of the developments in the Syrian Golan Heights, adjacent to Israels border. Since 19th June 2018, the Syrian regime, backed by its ally Russia, has carried out a deadly bombing campaign to retake the strategic area bordering Jordan and the Israeli Golan Heights.. The IDF reiterated in its statement Sunday that Israel would continue to adhere to its formal policy of non-intervention with regards to the Syrian civil war while reacting firmly to cases ...
Arutz Sheva reports: Israel filed a complaint against Syria Monday in the United Nations, alleging that Syrian forces crossed the border between Israel and Syria in the Golan Heights last week. Israels Deputy UN Ambassador, Haim Waxman, sent a letter to the UN Security Council Secretary General, in which he said that during fighting Thursday between the Syrian Army and rebel forces at Jubta al-Hasheb, Syrian forces crossed the 1974 Armistice Line.. Waxman noted that the event is a serious breach of the armistice agreement, which could have far reaching ramifications for security and stability in the region.. Voice of Israel radio reported that the commander of the UNs peacekeeping force along the Israeli-Syrian border confirmed Israels claims and said that Syria had indeed seriously breached the armistice accord. The UN peacekeeping force has requested clarifications from the Syrian regime, he said.. Read more: ARUTZ SHEVA. {Matzav.com Newscenter}. ...
Tel Aviv - Controversy about the risks of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines has been rumbling in the United States for years - and now its Israels turn. After finding traces of the polio virus in sewage, Israels Ministry of Health launched a national vaccination campaign that reached more than half a million children. Surprisingly, dissenting voices flooded social media and the mainstream news, calling for a halt to the campaign. Endorsements by public figures, like Israels president Shimon Peres, did little to calm the storm. Now a study led by researchers at Tel Aviv University demonstrates that nearly all pediatricians in Israel strongly support the vaccination of infants, but most do not believe that their role is to force treatment on parents. The study recommends that pediatricians use the art of persuasion, with the help of communication experts, as they discuss the risks and virtues of vaccination with parents. Our advice is that pediatricians find ways to communicate their views ...
Israel may have reached herd immunity against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, say experts from its largest hospital, Sheba Medical Center.. Herd immunity happens when a sufficient percentage of a population has immunity - through vaccination or having recovered from the disease - and gives indirect protection to those who arent immune.. The immunity level needed for herd immunity is calculated based on the transmission rate of the virus. For SARS-CoV-2 its estimated at 65-70 percent, says Dr. Eyal Leshem, director of Shebas Institute for Travel & Tropical Medicine.. Approximately 56% of Israels 9.2 million citizens are vaccinated and another 15% (approximately 700,000 people) recovered from Covid-19, putting Israel comfortably in the expected herd immunity range.. Were seeing a decline in the number of cases now despite the return to mass gatherings and schools following the third lockdown, because most of the people the infected person will meet are immune by now, Leshem tells ...
The European Union on Saturday called on Israel to respect its human rights obligations towards Palestinian-Arab prisoners, saying it was concerned about the condition of four detainees on a long-term hunger strike..

Columnist Bill Maxwell does a serious disservice to readers when, disregarding fact and context, he recklessly levels false charges against Israel regarding its conduct toward the Palestinians (Israel turns page, finds a sense of humanity, Sept. 12). Moreover, his sweeping accusations betray a sharp double-standard as he turns a blind eye to the truly severe abuses inflicted on Arabs by the Palestinian Authority and neighboring Arab states. In reference to Israels just having released Palestinian prisoners in fulfillment of recent agreements, he makes the astonishing claim that the conditions under which the prisoners languished made Israel one of the worlds worst violators of human rights. By any rational measure, such a statement is baseless - including even in the estimation of Palestinians themselves.. A June 1999 poll by a Palestinian organization, the Center for Palestine Research and Studies in Nablus, found that more than 70 percent of Palestinian respondents in a sample of West Bank ...
Appealing to American Christians on this basis is a losing proposition. Regardless of how they feel about the current political situation, most American Christians recognize Jerusalem as the capital of ancient Israel, a Jewish city that was the seat of King David and the site of the First and Second Temples. Jerusalem is the subject of a number of Old Testament prophecies, some of which have yet to be fulfilled, and is therefore an enduring link between the Hebrew people and God.. Whether one agrees with it or not, this belief is a widespread reality. For millions of American Christians, it is anti-Biblical revisionism to give Jerusalem a different name (Jerusalem means foundation of peace; Al-Quds means the holy) and propose to separate it from Israel. But it is also anti-historical revisionism to pretend that Israel and the Jews did not have their signature - transformative - relationship with the city. All generations for the last 3,000 years have known the city as Jerusalem, and ...
JERUSALEM - In a major concession to Gazas Hamas leaders Monday, Israel dropped its five-year ban on construction materials crossing into the territory and raised hopes there that rebuilding could begin following a damaging eight-day Israeli air campaign.. The easing of restrictions is an outgrowth of the cease-fire that ended the airstrikes and months of daily rocket fire from Gaza at Israel. Contacts mediated by Egypt to follow up the truce produced the concession, and Israel promised to keep easing the lives of Gazas 1.6 million residents, as long as Israelis were no longer targeted by rocket fire by Gaza militants.. How long the arrangement holds could serve as a test case for the brittle truce between the bitter enemies. It also reflects a new power equation, with neighboring Egypt under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent group of Hamas.. Israel, together with Egypt, imposed a land and naval embargo on Gaza after Hamas violently overtook the territory in 2007. Although ...
Israel has a technologically advanced market economy with substantial government participation. It depends on imports of crude oil, grains, raw materials, and military equipment. Despite limited natural resources, Israel has intensively developed its agricultural and industrial sectors over the past 20 years. Israel is largely self-sufficient in food production except for grains. Diamonds, high-technology equipment, and agricultural products (fruits and vegetables) are leading exports. Israel usually posts sizable current account deficits, which are covered by large transfer payments from abroad and by foreign loans. Roughly half of the governments external debt is owed to the US, which is its major source of economic and military aid. The influx of Jewish immigrants from the former USSR topped 750,000 during the period 1989-99, bringing the population of Israel from the former Soviet Union to 1 million, one-sixth of the total population, and adding scientific and professional expertise of ...
An important time to strengthen Jewish identity. The rise in anti-Semitic acts and presence in the last few months, including but not limited to anti-Israel pressures from college campuses to social media to online hate to the images from the January riot on Capitol Hill, has not escaped the notice of Birthright-goers. Weve had our fair share of pro-Palestinian rhetoric on campus, says Marshak, noting one professor who said that Israel is an apartheid state and that the Jews have no historical right to the land. The media also influences what people think, including all of us who came here questioning our beliefs and not knowing how to feel about Israel.. Her own view: Despite Israels problems, here I see Jews of different politics and religious views all feeling the same way about the rise in anti-Semitism, the importance of Israel and the fear that history could repeat itself..
