The risk of site specific cancers was increased, particularly of the stomach, ovary epithelium, ...
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 But a Tel Aviv University geologist suggests that earthquake patterns recorded in historical documents of Middle Eastern countries indicate that the regions next significant quake is long overdue..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..

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 ...

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 ...
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
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 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 ...

Mr. Kutchner may be well-intentioned, but it is inexplicable to me that this gentleman is pathologically incapable of reading the facts on the ground, as Israel has manipulated them, to make it impossible for a contiguous, whole, state of Palestine, to exist.. And he needs to start by fully comprehending the realisation that Israel does not want peace but territory, and territory by any means necessary.. Has no one ever shown him, or does he not have the intellectual curiosity, to understand what the very notion of Eretz Israel means, in terms of territorial expansion, and this is what the Zionists have been pushing for ever since the founding of Israel? Lets take a look at what that territorial expansion, if realized, would mean for other countries around it, shall we?!?. Map: Eretz Israel, or greater Israel.

I recently got into an argument online with someone who said that this is all Israels fault because Israel has been attacking its neighbours since its inception. Perplexed, I pointed out that such a statement is totally backwards: quite literally the moment it accounced its existence (the Israeli declaration of independence), Israels arab neighbous invaded it to strangle the new state at birth, and thereafter, Israel has been subject to attacks from its neighbours in 1956, 1967 and 1973, and has been subject to an ongoing attack by surrogates ever since. Aha, said my interlocutor (and I quote): The declaration of independence for israel was the start of the whole conflict. The foundation of a racist state lead to the [Arab attacks] your quoting up there. I suppose that if you define Israels mere existence as attacking its Arab neighbours, then it becomes fair - albeit tautological - to say that Israel has been attacking its neighbours since its inception (i.e. it has existed since it ...

A much earlier multicenter study performed with the collaboration of the World Health Organization21 showed that the incidence rates for all types of stroke in Israel are similar to those in several European countries, but they are significantly less than those in Japan and Finland. The reasons for the discrepancy between Israel and other countries can only be speculated on; they apparently include genetic factors, stress, diet, lack of alcoholism, and the nature of the medical services providing treatment of risk factors such as hypertension..

Israel, a small country wedged between Africa and Asia, is one that has faced many challenges. The country was created as a Jewish state in 1948, but ever since, it has worked towards developing a strong and stable economy. With this economy, Israel is a country that isnt the cheapest to live in. Despite the high price tags for things such as housing, transportation and groceries, Israel has easy access and relatively low costs for things such as healthcare and education. Here is a brief rundown on the cost of living in Israel:. Whats Expensive?. The cost of living in Israel can be high, especially in a nice area. For the Israelis, that means living in the center of the country, Jerusalem, which comes at a high price. In order to purchase a two-bedroom apartment in Jerusalem, one must pay a little less than half a million dollars. Additionally, the down payment required in Israel is normally 40 percent. Due to this high price tag, many people in the country find it difficult to afford their ...

As Israel violates the conditions of the current cease-fire, and Palestine adheres to its part of the bargain, Prime Murder Benjamin Netanyahu continues to proclaim that he will not negotiate with Palestine due to that governments recent unification. The Palestinian Authority and Hamas, after several years of operating independently, have settled their major differences. Israel will not negotiate, it says, because Hamas charter calls for the destruction of Israel. The irony of this is perhaps lost on members of the corrupt U.S. governance body, generally known as Congress, the president and the judiciary.. Hamas, with no army, navy or air force, can call for the end of the world if it wants to; it is in no position, as it cobbles together ineffective rockets from the few items Israel allows to be imported to the Gaza Strip, or the fewer that can be smuggled in, to cause anything more than minor inconvenience to Israel, a fact that was proven during Israels recent bombardment of the Gaza ...

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 ...
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 ...

The Israeli GIST Patients Organization is operating since Oct. 2007 in order to bring GIST patients the most updated information about new drugs, new research and supporting GIST patients and their families. We are also increasing the awareness of Health Authorities in Israel on the most updated information about GIST, GIST treatment, new life saving drugs for GIST and entering them to the Israeli Health Basket.. Due to the intensive activity of the management of the Israeli GIST patients organization the awareness for GIST has increased dramatically among family physicians, oncologists and GIST patients in Israel. As the Israeli GIST patients organization has started to be active there were only 6 members at the organization. Nowadays, there are 73 members at the Israeli GIST patients organization. We estimate that there are 160 GIST patients in Israel in different ...
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, ...

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 ...
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.. The European Union is following with concern the worsening health conditions of Samer Assawi, Jaafar Ezzedine, Ayman Sharawneh and Tareq Qaadan, who are all staging long-term hunger strikes, the blocs foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said in a statement, AFP reported.. The EU calls on the government of Israel to allow for the immediate restoration of their family visiting rights and calls for the full respect of international human rights obligations towards all Palestinian detainees and prisoners, she said.. PA prisoner affairs minister Issa Qaraqe said in a statement on Saturday that Israel was responsible for the prisoners well-being.. ...
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 ...
JERUSALEM (JTA) - Israel began returning gas masks to its citizens.. Gas masks collected from citizens nearly two years ago to replace outdated components were returned Sunday in Or Yehuda.. Under a new pilot program in which the Israeli armys Home Front Command and the Israel Postal Service return the masks to the civilian population, the gas masks also will be returned this week to residents of Kiryat Ono and Yehud, areas considered at higher risk of attacks.. Once the program is under way, it will take three to five years for masks to be redistributed to the civilian population, according to the Israel Defense Forces ...
Friedman, 41, is an acclaimed Canadian-born Israeli author (The Aleppo Codex, Pumpkinflowers) who recently published a most unusual book, Spies of No Country, about Israeli espionage at the time of the states founding - unusual in that its protagonists are Israelis born in the Arab world who ventured back there, into what was at once familiar and highly dangerous territory, in the service of the nascent state. Friedman chose to focus on the heroes of what was sometimes known as the Black Section of Israels bare-bones initial intelligence apparatus because, he told The Times of Israel in an interview last week, I thought we needed stories that better reflect the real Israel - not just stories of secular Ashkenazi pioneers and survivors of Warsaw ...
In September 1986, Mordechai Vanunu, a technician at Israels Dimona nuclear site, revealed to the Sunday Times that the nuclear military programme based there had produced over 200 nuclear warheads. Days later he was tricked into flying to Rome where he was abducted by Mossad agents and secretly transported to Israel. In November 1986, he was tried in camera and sentenced to 18 years imprisonment, 14 of which were spent in solitary confinement. In 1999, in response to a petition from Yediot Ahronot newspaper, the government released about 40 per cent of the trial documents. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists estimates that Israel has the worlds fifth largest stockpile of nuclear warheads (more than Britain, which it believes has 185). In February 2000, Knesset member Issam Mahoul said Israel had 200 to 300 nuclear weapons; in August of that year, the Federation of American Scientists said that Israel could have produced at least 100 nuclear weapons, but probably not significantly more ...
In June 1982, following a series of cross-border terrorist attacks and the attempted assassination of the Israeli Ambassador to the U.K., Israel invaded Lebanon to fight the forces of Yasser Arafats Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). The PLO withdrew its forces from Lebanon in August 1982. Israel, having failed to finalize an agreement with Lebanon, withdrew most of its troops in June 1985 save for a residual force which remained in southern Lebanon to act as a buffer against attacks on northern Israel. These remaining forces were completely withdrawn in May 2000 behind a UN-brokered delineation of the Israel-Lebanon border (the Blue Line). Hezbollah forces in Southern Lebanon continued to attack Israeli positions south of the Blue Line in the Sheba Farms/Har Dov area of the Golan Heights. The victory of the U.S.-led coalition in the Persian Gulf War of 1991 opened new possibilities for regional peace. In October 1991, the United States and the Soviet Union convened the Madrid Conference, ...

Two Palestinians were killed and at least one critically injured by Israeli forces late last night, as clashes continue to rock the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza. Early Thursday morning, two Palestinians were shot by Israeli forces after an alleged stabbing attack near a synagogue in Beit Shemesh. One was killed and the other left critically injured. A 25-year-old Israeli man was wounded and taken to hospital. According to the Israeli Police, the two men attempted to board a childrens bus but were warded off by civilians. Israeli police at the site shot both men leaving them severely wounded.. In another incident, Israeli forces shot and killed a Jewish man in central Jerusalem last night Wednesday, after mistaking him for a Palestinian attacker.. According to Ynetnews, the Jewish man suspected that armed soldiers boarding a bus were terrorists, and asked them for identification.. The soldiers, thinking the Jewish man was a terrorist, claimed he attacked them and tried to grab one of ...
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said before boarding his plane from Washington to Israel: It is not surprising that Palestinian terrorists fired at Israel just at the time of the ceremony. We will hit all those who have a hand in attacking us.. The IDF spokesperson said that ten Hamas targets were hit in the first Air Force attack, including a factory manufacturing weapons and explosives, and a military compound used for training and rocket tests. In the second attack, an underground infrastructure was hit.. So far there hasnt been a second Arab retaliatory attack for the IDFs second retaliatory attack.. Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi tweeted: Congratulations to the State of Israel on the peace with the Emirates and Bahrain, a new era has opened. But meanwhile, doesnt it seem strange to you, as a country, that the only terrorist killed in Gaza because of rocket fire in the last two years was the one who shot at Bibi in Ashdod? And congrats, Bibi, on the peace, but what about the lives of the ...

JERUSALEM (JTA) - A 66-year-old Israeli man received a kidney transplant from his daughter who died in an accident while vacationing abroad.. Moshe Shimnoni came out of surgery on Tuesday as his daughter, Orit Gur, 44, was being buried in Israel, the Israeli Hebrew-language daily newspaper Yediot Acharonot reported Wednesday. Gur died while horseback riding in Georgia.. She was flown back to Israel after the accident for treatment but died there. Her heart, second kidney and liver were transplanted into other patients.. Gur had signed an organ donor card several years ago, according to reports.. We promised each other a few years ago that if something happened to one of us, wed donate our organs, her husband, Lior, said in his eulogy, The Times of Israel reported. Orit, you did exactly as youd wanted, giving life to other people.. The couple have two children, aged 20 and 16.. ...
The Plan puts an end to any hope of Palestinian territorial and national unity and contiguity, and can only accelerate Palestines gradual depopulation, continuing what the Oslo process began. Yet, like Oslo, Camp David and Taba before it, the Plan is rarely analysed. It is enveloped in silence.. Whatever else it claims to be, the Gaza Disengagement Plan is, at heart, an instrument for Israels continued annexation of West Bank land and the physical integration of that land into Israel. This is all but spelled out in the Plan itself, which states that in any future permanent status arrangement, there will be no Israeli towns and villages in the Gaza Strip. On the other hand - and here, Israel is uncharacteristically transparent - it is clear that in the West Bank, there are areas which will be part of the state of Israel, including major Israeli population centres, cities, towns and villages, security areas and other places of special interest to Israel. To my knowledge this is the first ...
Recent discoveries of significant reserves of natural gas in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Israel have catapulted the Mediterranean Sea into the international spotlight and onto Israels national agenda.. MERCI - Mediterranean Sea Research Center of Israel is a consortium of seven universities, one college and two governmental research institutes, working under the leadership of the University of Haifa, to address an unprecedented array of scientific, technological, economic, security, and environmental challenges and opportunities resulted from the rapid development of the Eastern Mediterranean offshore.. MERCI focuses on:. ...
Lets think about Israel from the Israeli viewpoint for a minute, shall we? It is, by any standards, an extremely small country. Within its own borders, it is a sophisticated Western-style nation that leads the world in scientific innovation. Its political system is a parliamentary style democratic republic. Although its system isnt perfect, no one questions the fact that it extends full civil rights to all citizens within its borders, regardless of race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, or country of national origin.. Another fact about Israel? A large part of the world wants to see it - and all its citizens - destroyed because the State of Israel is a Jewish state. Europeans classify it as the most dangerous state in the world. Israelis rightly suspect that the Europeans are wrong, and that there are, in fact, a few other states more dangerous than it is. There is the Gazan state along its Western side, that has a charter that enshrines the desire to drive every citizen of Israel ...
Spin control is crucial in this modern age of media hype and orchestrated public attacks. As a nation perpetually under siege, Israel has smartly hired one of New York Citys premier public relations firms, Rubenstein Associates, in NYC, in order to favorably mold world opinion, via media of all types including myriad print venues and broadcast news organizations. This beleaguered nation seeks to create a positive image and accompanying reputation, while simultaneously informing and persuading the international community, especially in relations to its conflict with the Palestinians. As a tiny sovereign entity surrounded by enemy Arab nations in the Middle East, Israel is vitally dependent upon the cooperation and assistance of other nations, most notably the United States and its salient financial support. The struggle for Israel is no less than its quest for survival.. And what is essential for Israel to communicate to the international community through the media? The Israelis must ...
Chemical Stores Moved from Haifa Hizbullah fired many katyusha rockets into Israel again on Wednesday, killing two Arab-Israeli boys in Nazareth and lightly wounding 9 others with shrapnel. Hizbullahs katyushas are extremely imprecise, so that in firing them at Israel the fighters are engaging in indiscriminate fire on civilian populations, which is a war crime.. Al-Bawaba says, Katyushas also hit Nahariya in the late afternoon. Some 70 Katyushas were fired at Israel within the space of an hour. Earlier Wednesday, two rockets hit Haifa and others fell in the Western Galilee. Most of the katyushas appear to produce few casualties and do little damage, though some have hit buildings. Xinhua reports, Haifa, Tiberias, Karmiel, Acre as well as a number of communities in the Galilee in northern Israel were pounded by a salvo of rockets, which totalled about 70 within an hour, said the reports, adding residents were instructed to stay inside. According to the reports, injuries were reported in ...
