Post Mar. 14th 2018                                                                                                                                1. Please read this patiently: "Quran is a complete book of guidance and while studying various issues it should be kept in mind that a particular issue may be discussed over several chapters or several verses in the same chapter. A complete understanding can only be achieved by understanding the whole issue as presented over all the verses and chapters and not by looking at only part of the Quran. God specifically warns us against doing just that, upholding part of the Quran while disregarding the rest.                                .. Then is it only a part of the Book that ye believe in, and do you reject the rest? but what is the reward for those among you who behave like this but disgrace in this life? – and on the Day of Judgment they shall be consigned to the most grievous penalty. For God is not unmindful of what ye do. (Quran 2:85)  
To understand the issue of befriending the Jews, Christians or people of any other faith, we have to study all the concerned verses from the Quran collectively.                                    Let us look at some other verses about this issue. The following two verses regulate relations with any people, regardless of their faith.                                                                     As for such [of the unbelievers] as do not fight against you on account of [your] faith, and neither drive you forth from your homelands, God does not forbid you to show them kindness and to behave towards them with full equity: for, verily, God loves those who act equitably. (Quran 60:8)                       
God only forbids you to turn in friendship towards such as fight against you because of [your] faith, and drive you forth from your homelands, or aid [others] in driving you forth: and as for those [from among you] who turn towards them in friendship; it is they, they who are truly wrongdoers! (Quran 60:9)          
From the above verses, we learn that we are only discouraged from befriending those who fight Muslims because of their religion. Now let’s go back to the verse immediately after 5:51, to see if it sheds some further light on the issue.                                                   And yet you can not see how those in whose hearts there is disease vie with one another for their good will (the hostile Jews and Christians), saying [to themselves], “We do fear lest a change of fortune bring us disaster.” But God may well bring about good fortune [for the believers] or any [other] event of His own devising, whereupon those [waverers] will be smitten with remorse for the thoughts which they had secretly harboured within themselves-  (Quran 5:52)                        
During the time of the Prophet when the Jews and Christians were in open conflict with the Muslims, there were some Muslims who were more concerned about maintaining there alliances with the Jews and Christians at the expense of the Muslim community. The above verse is referring to such situations where Muslims with doubts in their hearts will ally themselves with the enemy.                                                                                    Chapter 5 Verse 57 of the Quran makes it clear again, who are not to be taken as friends; O you who believe! take not for friends and protectors those who take your religion for a mockery or sport,- whether among those who received the Scripture before you, or among those who reject Faith; but remain conscious of God, if you are (truly) believers. (Quran 5:57)  God teaches us throughout the Quran that there are righteous Jews and Christians. As such, there is no prohibition for Muslims to be friends with Jews, Christians or people of any other faith who are of good character.                                      Quranic verses referring to the righteous Jews and Christians:    
Of the people of Moses there is a section who guide and do justice in the light of truth. (Quran 7:159)                     
And We caused Jesus, the son of Mary, to follow in the footsteps of those (earlier prophets), confirming the truth of whatever there still remained of the Torah; and We sent him the Gospel, wherein there was guidance and light, confirming the truth of whatever there still remained of the Torah, and as a guidance and admonition unto the God-conscious. (Quran 5:46)                                                                                                                                                          Verily, those who have attained to faith [in this divine writ], as well as those who follow the Jewish faith, and the Christians, and the Sabians – all who believe in God and the Last Day and do righteous deeds-shall have their reward with their Sustainer; and no fear need they have, and neither shall they grieve. (Quran 2:62)   
Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of God all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration. They believe in God and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous. (Quran 3:113-114)    
And there are, certainly, among the People of the Book, those who believe in God, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them, bowing in humility to God. They will not sell the Signs of God for a miserable gain! For them is a reward with their Lord, and God is swift in account. (Quran 3:199)                                                                                                            The following verse from the Quran capsulates this issue:                                                           O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other (not that you may despise (each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things). (Quran 49:13) "              Amir's request: Please, if you do understand the issue and the reasons why to follow it, could you, please, answer in one word "Yes" or "No" the question: Can Jews and Christians and Arabs live together? Is it allowed/recommended?                                            2. Quotation of a letter addressed to me: "Yesterday I shared a post with a video featuring an interview by WHUT with Bassem Tamimi, the father of Ahed Tamimi, 17. She, and her mother, Nariman, have both been confined in an Israeli prison since late December following an incident in which the young girl slapped an Israeli soldier who was attempting to enter her home. As you would expect, Bassem confided that he is very worried, yet also very proud of his daughter, and he also asserts that “the enemy of our humanity is the Israeli occupation.” But perhaps the most striking of his comments comes at the tail end of the interview when, in a clear reference to Jesus, he talks about the possibilities for peace and pays tribute to the “Prophet of Peace.” In this segment he mentions family members who have been killed by Israeli forces, yet expresses hope that peace may come one day “after we can analyze and destroy the occupation mentality.” He mentions Israeli apartheid, expressing hope for a solution in which all peoples can live at peace regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity–and then finally offers the following:                                                                                                                                                  We believe that the main and important part of the struggle again is the human being. For that we need to follow our humanity, follow justice, peace, and the freedom until we reach the goal that everyone lives in this land in peace–to be an example for the land of peace in the homeland of the Prophet of Peace.                                                                              I wanted to post Bassem’s words here because I thought they might help clarify the struggle and plight of Palestinians–particularly for those Americans who are not as familiar with the issue and who don’t get a clear picture of what’s going on due to the ownership and control of their media. According to a poll conducted in 2016, nearly half of all Americans (a whopping 49.2 percent) believe Palestinians occupy Israeli land rather than the reverse.                                                                                                                      …………… Perhaps the whole passage from Matthew 25 is worth recounting here:               “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left………’                                                                   Who is more closely following the teachings of Jesus? And who would Jesus have the most compassion for? The occupiers or the occupied? Those who throw children into prison (Amir: Never- this is a lie of the writer)? Or the parents bringing up those children? Those who carry out home raids (Amir: Why it was taken, if it was at all. Please explain) in the middle of the night? Or those who live in those homes and face the terror (Amir: Who is initiating the terror)of having their doors kicked in? Those instigating wars? Or those who continue, against all odds, trying to find a way to peace (Amir: Muslims looking for peace? Ha, Ha, Ha. You lie like they, Mr. writer)?  Amir: Please read the following carefully. How this man changes the facts. The Israeli soldier that was attacked slapped became the attacker. This is the professional deviator of facts and he uses the Holy Bible for his interesting lies.                                                                          Bassem makes another interesting point when he asserts that in reality, for him, it was the face of the soldier that slapped Ahed’s hand–rather than the other way around. He is right. When you are talking about an occupation that has continued unabated for decades, when you’re referring to a soldier of that occupation appearing at the front gate of a family’s home, a soldier carrying a gun and wearing combat gear, and when the family he is threatening is guilty of nothing more than peaceful, nonviolent resistance, nonviolent, peaceful resistance in an effort to end the “occupation mentality” that has oppressed them for years–in such case it is the soldier, not the young girl, who is, in reality doing the slapping".                                                                                                        Amir's reply:  Shalom Mr. R. Ed.                                                                                                          I watched your staged video. Do you think that convinced anybody who watched it? No. It didn't. You, the Arab's lovers and Israel's haters must go 50 years backward history to learn how this occupation started. It started because the Arabs, in this case, Jordan, besides 2 other Arab states, Syria and Egypt, all of them simultaneously, attacked Israel. Then the West Bank was conquered. Israel does not want/need this piece of land, but, due to the sad history, when Arabs used to come at nights to murder Israelis that lived within the old/original borders, and due to the fact that Jordan, that was the owner of this land never asked it back and due to the fact the Arabs never expressed their will/desire to have peace with Israel and due to the fact that I(Israel must take care of their citizens and, and, and the occupation still exists. Once the Arabs want peace and we come to an agreement, the occupation will be lifted.                                                                    Please bear this in mind and you can also share this reply, but you will not, with your friends in order to know also the other side that you hate and the poison that you spread all time all over.                                                                                                                                  One more thing. The Bible was given, by God, to Moses in Sinai for the use of Israel, not for the Arabs. This is the holy/holiest book in the world. Your deviated explanations/comments, of the Bible in favor of the Arabs/Muslims defile/dirt the said in the book. You should, as a Christian, admire this book. Instead, you use it to help the bitter enemies of the original owners of the book.  They, the Muslims, have their own Quran. You must use, preferably, this one if you want to help them. Please leave the Jewish Bible that was given to Jews. You can struggle with the Quran concerning your favorite people, the Arabs/Muslims.

In friendship

Post-Mar 13th 2018                                                                                                                              1. U.N. Chief António Guterres described the Ghouta region of Syria as “hell on earth” on Monday. Approximately 400,000 people have been trapped inside this embattled city outside of the Syrian capital of Damascus, which has been pulverized by the Iranian and Russian backed forces of Bashir Assad. In the last week alone, as many as 800 people in Ghouta have been massacred by the Syrian-Russian-Iranian axis.

The faces of the children inside this besieged enclave tell a harrowing story, their eyes gaunt from fear, and their bodies terribly thin from malnourishment. Most of the people are hiding in basements of the remains of half-shelled-out buildings. Humanitarian organizations have had a difficult time delivering food and medicine because their convoys are prevented from coming through.                                                                                It has been seven years since the start of the harshest of conflicts in the war-ravaged Middle East. Ceasefires have been called for in the United Nations—and then promptly ignored.                                                                                                                                                   It all started innocently enough when a young man, buoyed by hopes of the “Arab Spring” in 2010, scribbled a message on a school wall against Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. From there, the rapid descent into hell began, which spread throughout Syria, with a current estimate of 600,000 Syrians dead and millions displaced, representing the biggest refugee crisis since World War 2.                                                                                             But Ghouta, the heart of the anti-Assad rebellion, has been hit the hardest. It was the site of the infamous chemical attack that killed more than 1,000 civilians in August 2013 and left much more with horrific injuries, including the loss of limbs.     It was in this city where the resolve of President Barack Obama and the United States was tested. It was within this very city that Assad used chemical weapons on Aug. 21, 2013, approximately one year and one day after Obama had said that if he saw chemical weapons being moved around or used, he would have to draw a “red line.”                                                    And, thanks to that lack of will, America failed the test miserably.                                            When America does not display its strength, all of the moral cockroaches come crawling out of the woodwork, like the Iranian mullahs, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.                                                                                                                 After consistent years of brutal fighting, the war in Syria is not over, although the civil war might be extinguishing itself, with Assad left in power thanks to the help of Russia. However, this is not a beginning of the end. It might be the end of the beginning                  We might well be on the precipice of another, greater war, where superpowers are involved with competing interests that might intersect. Turkey, which would like to believe it is a superpower, has unleashed a particular round of fury against the Kurdish enclave in the northwestern city of Afrin, Syria.                                                                            Muslim Brotherhood supporter Erdogan, who despises the Kurds, has used the chaos in Syria as an excuse to pummel this isolated region. The Kurdish enclave valiantly fought for its independent survival for at least a month, but these Kurds were badly pounded, and had been isolated and cut off from any aid from the United States. In desperation, they sought the help of Damascus in order to survive.                                                                                                                                                         This is Syria today. It is one mass killing field atop another, and the air over it is being used by superpowers and those that aspire to be superpowers to play out their hegemonic dreams (or in Putin’s case, to flex its muscles). At the same time, Lebanon is overrun with Hezbollah and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and has become a huge base for the manufacturing of missiles.                                                                                 On Feb. 10, the Iranian-Syrian-Russian axis sent a drone missile to Israeli airspace to test Israel’s resolve. And, thank G-d, Israel with its strong military passed the test masterfully. The response was immediate. It was direct. And it was harsh.  That is the only way to survive in the Middle East.                                                                                                                 And that is why it is so important that Israel always maintain its strategic depth and control of the high ground on the Golan Heights.                                                                         In 1994 during the heady days of Oslo, when everyone had stars in their eyes about making peace with terrorists, dictators, and despots,  I was part of a small band of people who worked very hard to inform the U.S. Congress of a plan on the table to place American troops on the Golan Heights. This was conceived as a way to sweeten the bitter pill for American Jewry and the Israeli public for a withdrawal from the Golan Heights. This withdrawal was to be in exchange for a “peace treaty” with then-President Hafez al-Assad of Syria                                                                                                                                      My friends and I went against the grain and were subject to some stinging criticisms.  We knew that Assad was not to be trusted, but we were dubbed as “enemies of peace.”            Most of those who condemned me and my friends 24 years ago would not want to remember the position they took then.  And the next time Israel is coaxed to simply trade “land for peace” with current or potential terrorists, despots and dictators, I ask you to please remember the horrors of Ghouta and of Afrin.                                                                2. A man born to a Muslim Arab family in Kuwait who eventually embraced his grandmother's Jewish roots and became an Israeli citizen spoke about his journey from Islam to Orthodox Judaism at a meeting of the Knesset at the Israel Victory Caucus Tuesday. Mark Halawa was born to a secular Muslim family in Kuwait, and like many in the Arab world, viewed the State of Israel as an enemy, despite knowing that his maternal grandmother was Jewish.                                                                                            Born in Jerusalem in the 1930s, Halawa's grandmother married a Jordanian soldier and moved with her husband to Zarqa, Jordan.                                                                                     "The Middle East – and my life – does not fit into a simplistic category," Halawa told caucus members at Tuesday's meeting.                                                                                 Halawa described the education he received as a child from "the enemies of Israel."          "They taught me from a young age that Jews have no connection this land, and that Israel is a racist colonial project set up by Western imperialists and supported by America – the great Satan – to divide the Ottoman Caliphate so that there would never be a Muslim empire again.                                                                                                                                          He described his mixed Muslim and Jewish heritage and how his father, a Palestinian Arab born in Beit Shean in 1945, told him "how Arab radio broadcasts urged all the Arabs of British Palestine to clear out immediately to make room for the great slaughter that would be carried out, promising them they would come back and seize the properties of slaughtered Jews in a matter of days. So they left and became refugees in camps in Jordan, in Syria, and in Lebanon."                                                                        Halawa slammed UNRWA for "keeping people refugees indefinitely and increasing their numbers."                                                                                                                                           "My father received a Jordanian passport and full citizenship rights. But UN bureaucrats and UNRWA and the so-called PLO bamboozled the world, turning us into perpetual refugees.                                                                                                                                     "Instead of resettling, UNRWA created six million of us today, paying the PLO several hundred dollars a month on behalf of myself and those six million people while the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) struggles to find funds and shelter to feed real refugees. We have to end this sham now.                                                      Halawa called on the delegates to help his nonprofit reach out to young Arabic speakers "to create a social revolution to liberate the next generation of the Middle East to recognize the plurality of life and to live the democratic values represented by free and great countries such as Israel and the United States of America."                                            3. Brigitte Gabriel is an Ex Lebanese lady. She is a famous journalist and author. But, on top of it, she is a very big admirer of Israel. She is visiting Israel and she deserves a couple of good words and the reason why a Muslim Lebanese girl became such an admirer of Israel. The story starts 36 years ago. During a very heavy attack/bombardment of PLO forces on Marj Ayun-a small city in S. Lebanon her mother got injured. The mother was rushed and hospitalized in "Ziv" hospital. Brigitte came to visit her. Immediately when Brigitte saw how Israeli doctors treat their Muslim enemies, she fell in love with Israel and she understood that all stories that she heard about Israel were fake. Brigitte: "For me, this is a very meaningful visit. I am so excited to return to the place and to see that after so many years you still treat/save Arab/Muslim people. You don't differentiate between colors, sex, nationalities, and religion. It is exactly like it was in 1982, when I met with you the first time. I want to thank you for your treatment in all the wounded since then till now. Your kindness and generosity must be appreciated and will not be forgotten forever. The Manager of Ziv medical center is proud (because of the apartheid, of course) Israeli/ Arab/Muslim Dr. Salman Zarka. He treated over 1500 Syrians. In his meeting with Brigitte, he said the following: "We see the suffering of the Syrian people. We hope that during the 5 years of direct contacts with them they learned that we are people like them and not animals like we are described in the Muslim media. Let's hope for common lives in the future". Yes, this is the truth about Israel. All that the Arabs say/tell you are just notoriety lies.                                                                                         4. The OECD: "The Israeli economy is one of the leading economies of the world". One of the reasons is the growth of the Israeli economy for 15 consecutive years. They also say that in spite of this success of the Israeli economy it is in a danger of pulling back due to the substantial number of none working force. These are the Arab, that their qualifications do not suit today's labor demands to join the top positions and the other sector is the most religious Jews that instead of working and produce goods they sit and learn Torah that does not produce income. This is a very bad situation. These 2 sectors must make a switch in their mind and understand that it is very bad, even mentally, not to work.                                                                                                                                                  5. This has also to do with the Israeli economy. The Arabs across the border in the West Bank, instead of teaching/educate their youngsters/children to work for their better future/productivity, in order to improve their lives, they teach them how to become terrorists. 40 years ago a terrorist girl leading a group of terrorists stopped a bus and killed 40 of its Israeli passengers. The Arabs were, at that time, very proud of it and today, as well, they admire the terror. The PA published this crime story in the elementary school books so the young children will learn how to kill Jews. Education is a matter of concept and the Arab concept like we see it all over the world: wars and killing.

So, don't support them. Support only Israel the peaceful state.

Don't forget to buy Israeli products, please.

The administration of US President Donald Trump is once again considering new “military action” against the Syrian government, the Washington Post reported on March 5 citing unnamed officials.

According to the newspaper, President Trump, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser Herbert McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met last week to discuss new strikes in response to what they call chemical weapons attacks by government forces in Eastern Ghouta"

Amir: What would you expect when you see such a headline? I would expect a report of how many Syrian were killed in the last 24 hours by Assad's army. Instead, the article is dealing with US administration. Why is that? Because they, the Arabs and their horn want you not to pay attention to the endless go on the murder of President Assad. This is the Arab way to kill, kill, kill and kill.


  1. "During the discussion on the bill, MK Avi Dichter said that the Palestinian Authority (PA) has increased its payments to terrorists and their families by nearly $56 million in 2018. Avi Dichter, former Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) head and current Head of the Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee, pointed out that PA head Mahmoud Abbas authorized the 2018 PA budget on Sunday, and that there is a PA law that allocates 7 percent of each budget to paying terrorists, or to their families, if they are killed during the attack. The PA paid terrorists and their families more than $347 million in 2017. The some will now jump to $403 million.    Dichter explained that the increase “means that the PA will employ more terrorists as PA workers. Except that the terrorists who work for the PA have a special quality – they are employed both as dead and living terrorists.”                                       Murderers, like the two who killed five of the Fogel family members in 2011, “are heroes to the PA. This is not a whim. It’s in the PA’s constitution,” Dichter added, according to the Jerusalem Post.                                                                                         According to Israel’s Defense Ministry, the PA in 2017 paid NIS 687 million to the so-called “martyrs’ families fund” and NIS 550 million to the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club – some seven percent of its overall budget.                                                            Palestinian prisoners serving 20-30 year sentences for carrying out terror attacks are eligible for a lifetime NIS 10,000 monthly stipend, the Defense Ministry said, citing PA figures.                                                                                                                  Those who receive a three-to-five-year sentence get a monthly wage of NIS 2,000. Palestinian prisoners who are married, have children, live in Jerusalem, or hold Israeli citizenship receive additional payments.                                                                 During the debate which preceded the vote, Stern said that “in the current situation, there is an incentive to engage in terror activities, and this postpones peace. Palestinians themselves have testified during interrogations that they continued to engage in terror in order to be imprisoned and receive more money. This law is meant not only to promote the safety of the citizens and residents of the State of Israel but also to promote peace.”
  2. These are the real friends of Israel: Milos Zeman, recently elected to his second five-year term as president of the Czech Republic, would like to speed up the process of moving his country’s embassy to Jerusalem, the Lidové noviny newspaper reported on Thursday.                                                                                                                             The Americans announced in February that as an initial step they would be turning their consulate in Jerusalem into an embassy on May 14, coinciding with Israel’s 70th anniversary. Daniel Meron, Israel’s ambassador to Prague, tweeted that according to the Czech paper, Zeman would like his country to join US President Donald Trump’s initiative in that regard.                                                                      While Meron tweeted “US: 1, Czech Republic: 2?” he was corrected by responders who reminded him that Guatemala would be the second, as President Jimmy Morales announced on Sunday that his country would move its embassy a mere two days after the United States.   Guatemala said that they will move their embassy to Jerusalem in parallel to the American and the Czech. This is a very good new as more countries will follow them and all, of a sudden Jerusalem, will become what it deserves: being the capital of the world as all religions, except the Islam, +
  3. This is just one step that Israel is doing to establish peace between Israel and the Arab Students from Arab countries will attend the next scholar year. +/- 100 students from Gaza, S. Sudan, Syria, from PA, will attend this international high school. The school is under the control of the IB which is an international organization for education. They will study together with students from Israel. This is just one step towards a common life in the Middle East, not just between Israel and the Arab, more for the Arab countries that fight for nothing am0ong themselves.
  4. 2 Arabs were caught, carrying explosives, on their way to the checkpoint in an Israeli court. They were stopped and arrested. If you don't know what for they carried the bombs I will tell you that they were suicide bombs. This is what the Arabs are doing compare to what Israel is doing as described in #4.
  5. Gaza's catastrophe again: according to an international survey, the situation in Gaza is near and disaster. The reason is the Gazan's regime conduction/management. Water, Sewage, health, Power is in the most crucial situation. Why is that? Because instead of concentrating how to help the Gazan population they concentrate on to destroy Israel. The world is tired of Gaza. Therefore they don't care about Gaza. Will anybody of the readers find a solution to the way that the Arabs behave?
  6. The Israeli firm "Straus" is not selling ice to the Eskimo it makes much more. They sell coffee to Brazil. The products of the Israeli firm, that are produced in Brazil and sold to over 50 countries, are a best seller in Brazil. So, why to support successful Israel if the Arab's jealousy fights Israel? To destroy is very easy. Let's see them, the Arabs, making something more positive. If you have any relations with the Arabs, please, make everything to switch their heads/minds, to think positive instead of negative.
  7. One example of the negative behavior of the Arabs is the attack that launches on the Israeli pavilion in the tourism show in Berlin. The 3 attackers were stopped and arrested by the German police. This is the Arab contribution to the world's peace.
  8. The Israeli economy is booming. The inflation rate in the world climbs, in Israel not. The reason is that it is very healthy one. The Israeli products and the Israeli way to make business is smart and attractive. Israel, due to its strong presence in the world market can offer a large variety of goods. The result of the above is the Israeli inflation rate which is 0.5%. To compare it to other developed markets we find that the American inflation is 2.1%, the average in the OECD is 2.2%. If I was not Israeli I would be very jealous. Since I am I leave the Jealousy to others, but with the same breath, I offer them cooperation in improving their markets. I am sorry that the Arabs are against instead of saying: "yes, we do".
  9. Here is what other countries, then Israel, including Arab states, think about Hezbollah. S. Arabia and GB set the following public announcement: "We call to disassemble Hezbollah and to fight his trials to destabilizing the order in the region". This is not just Israel. This is the international opinion of this terror organization. The 2 states decided to assist Lebanon in its fight to depart Hezbollah from Lebanon. In addition, the 2 declared that "Iran must not interfere in the internal orders of other countries".
  10. The NGI monitor issued surveys which describe/show the terror organizations get their funds. The Arabs don't pay a nickel. The money is coming from donors. Non Governmental Arab organizations get money for assistance to poor Arabs. The money never found its way to the poor people. It goes to Arab women organization that split into groups that deal with incitement. These organizations are known as WCLAC, YWCA, PWWSD, and WATC. They spend the money in studies/lectures that intend to convince the world to adopt the Arab's views. This is where your money is going to. Instead of working for peace it is used to increase the hatred.
  11. Dr. Rolando Tuyus is an eye doctor. He innovated a couple of medicines. He is visiting Israel for his business. To the question why he is visiting Israel he answered the following: As a businessman, I have a great honor to Israel. It concerns the management of the Israeli public health system. Concerning new innovations, he thinks that USA (YES USA) can learn a lot from Israel. A lot of American money is spent on health because the system is very inefficient. Swiss, Singapore is working good but Israel is in the top. I always loved Israel and I don't have any problem to work with as I see, like others, the joint ventures produce beautiful fruits so everybody, including the users, can benefit out of this cooperation.
  12. The Islam is blooming in Sweden: According to police reports, the woman is charged with “talking in a negative or threatening way about a group of people” after she posted cartoons about Islam on Facebook. A preliminary investigation was started after she was reported to the police. The woman had to undergo a “degrading” interrogation and had to submit DNA as well. During the police hearing, the woman apologized for her post and said she had nothing against ordinary Muslims, but only against ISIS…. But Gothenburg’s prosecutor, Sara Toreskog, chose to move on with the case and prosecute the woman for “hate speech” – a crime that could lead to two years in a Swedish prison.

In the view of all written above, we will carry on supporting Israel as Israel contributes the world much more than all Arab/Muslim states altogether. Support means buying Israeli products, not donations

Post-Mar. 11th 2018

1." The short answer to this would be: No, of course they are not ALL bad, because there is every type of person in this world, and someone who comes from a horrible background can be better than one with a great background, but as said, I also probably never heard anyone sincerely claiming that every single Muslim is a horrible terrorist. There are significant numbers of Muslims, however, much more so than people of any other belief, who have horrible views about basic human rights that we have in the West today. They have unacceptable views about women, about free speech, about freedom of religion, about homosexuals and so much more. The mainstream media in the West and their supporters are never tired of bring up the 1%, claiming that radicals are only 1% of the world’s Muslim population. The problem is that they refer to armed terrorists who actually participate in terrorist activity as “radicals”. Well, radicals are not only those who actually kill people. What I, together with many others, would define as radical are those who clearly say that people who choose a different belief should be killed, that women have to be obedient creatures, that homosexuals should be persecuted and killed, that any form of criticism of Islam needs to be punished violently. Radicals would be people who want to implement sharia law because the sharia includes these and many more disgusting things.                                                                                                                     There are so many Western people who think it is somehow their humane duty to protect Islam and Muslims from any kind of criticism and blame. They are everywhere on social media, they think by knowing one person they have all the wisdom in the world, and they tell you to shut up when you say a word about Islam. I’m talking about those who want to talk against “Islamophobia” because they know a few seemingly friendly Muslims. They think: “Oh, I have this Muslim friend and he has been my friend for the last 5 years. He is so nice, so Muslims are good and Islam is peace.”                                                                                                                                   Well, don’t you have Christian friends? Don’t you have white people as friends? As teachers, colleagues or neighbors? They are everywhere around you and most of them are friendlier than people you find anywhere in the Islamic world. I’m saying this because so many of those who jump into the defense when Islam is criticized are also those who want to blame every single thing that happens in their country on white men and Christians or conservatives, because what drives them to defend Islam and Muslims is not social justice, it is their irrational rebellious attitude that they have against their own societies and   norms                                                                  You might have Muslim friends that are pretty nice. That’s no surprise, because especially if you are in America or in Canada and you research a bit, you will find out that North American Muslims are the least religious Muslims and consequently the most peaceful ones in the world, because moving to North America, especially to the US, is much harder than moving to Europe, and Muslims who actually choose to move to the US are usually more secular people who really want to move out of the Islamic world. [1] Not all, of course. If you live in Europe, Muslims are usually less peaceful but still better than in Pakistan. The reason is very clear. Muslims in the West are usually people who moved to the West for a better life, which also changed their perspectives, but your Muslim friend who is quite nice with you, doesn’t really mean anything in this discussion. Second generations and younger ones usually don’t learn much about their religion from their parents, and learn basic Western values when they grow up. They are usually only cultural Muslims. Those will also easily deny every negative fact that you mention about Islam, because they don’t know about Islam. They only know that they are supposed to be proud Muslims, that insulting and criticizing Islam is horrible, and they combine or confuse Islamic teachings with basic Western values. As a result they are still usually antisemitic, misogynistic and homophobic, but they also don’t believe that Islam teaches anything that would be too bad from a Western perspective. They don’t even want to look into it, because they are afraid of the truth.                                                                   Your Western Muslim friend doesn’t mean anything, and knowing them doesn’t make you an Islamic scholar. Your Muslim friend is an individual that is very far from knowing everything about Islam. Muslims are still disproportionately active in crimes, Muslims are still disproportionately hateful. I just mentioned how Muslims in the West are different from those in the Islamic world, but they are not as different as people think they are. If you grow up in a Muslim family (I did) you still grow up with massive hatred of Jews, of the West, of anyone who criticizes Islam, of “the kuffar” – the disbelievers. As a German-Turkish Ex-Muslim, I can tell you that Turkish Muslims still use the word gavur, which is an extremely derogatory term for non-Muslims, and they use it everywhere among each other. They don’t see that as a problem. They don’t consider it “hate speech”. That’s the norm. Just imagine that such a thing was the norm in America.                                                                                 As said, Muslims in the West still quite different. The Islamic world is by far the worst when it comes to basic human rights, and it doesn’t seem to get better as quickly as Western civilization does. In the Islamic world there is no free speech. There is almost no Muslim majority country where it is legal to say anything bad about Islam, the country or the government. So, dear Western liberals who can freely say whatever they want about the president, the dominant religion or the country, can you imagine living in fear whenever you criticize any of the things mentioned? Can you imagine being fined, jailed, tortured or killed if you say anything about white people, Christians, the government or the country? Horrible for you, right? Well, that is the truth in the Muslim world, and the majority of Muslims approve of it. That’s why you don’t hear of Ex-Muslims speaking out about Islam while in the Islamic world. They have to move to the West to do that. Free speech doesn’t exist in the Muslim world, it exists in your Western world. That’s why you should appreciate it and protect it"                                                                                  2. This is an application/comment/claim/allegation that speaks for itself: "Who are kidding when you say the people in Gaza are supplied with everything they need?      I lived there for almost 6 months after Operation Cast Lead. We had medical equipment that was useless because we could not get replacement batteries ( eg defibrillator), because of the embargo on an ever changing and ever-growing list of items. depending on the whims of some official as to what would be allowed into Gaza, ranging from children's toys to paper. As for energy, there were ( are) deliberate cuts to hydro, frequently for up to 14 hours a day. How do you run a business like this, or even go about daily life? Freshwater is scarce and limited.            Amir, it is time for you to educate yourself on what is REALLY happening with the Palestinian people".

Amir's reply: Shalom Mr. V.                                                                                                     Thank you for your interesting comment.                                                                          The problem is with your basic assume: "I lived there for almost 6 months……". Did you live in Israel this period of time and did you look at the Gazans how they look from Israel? Did you check their order from Israel and did you check what was supplied?                                                                                                                          Batteries: Shortage of batteries: The reason may be that you didn't order the batteries, as ordered batteries were fully supplied. Please check if they were not taken by the stores/middlemen and sold in the free market for full, price. It happens and still happening daily. Last week they took/steal 2 million liters of fuel that were dedicated to operating the power plants. It vanished. Yes vanished. This is Gaza.  Toys and papers: Most of it was imported, by Gazans businessman, through Israel. As long as the containers did not contain explosives they were supplied to Gaza. If explosives were found-it was removed and the balance was supplied to the importer. It happened that they refused to pay the custom that the Gazans implied on the goods. Then it was an internal issue. Israel was just the service pipeline. Please don't tell us that no toys arrived as plenty of full load containers with toys were transported to Gaza.                                                                                                                   Water: This is a very heavy issue. Would you, Mr,. V. supply your enemy with water and enable him/them keep attacking you? No. You wouldn't. So why you blame Israel for not supplying neglected goods to its bitter enemy that his agenda, as they declare, to ruin/destroy Israel. But, in spite of the said Israel supply Gaza with water, power, gas, food and all day use materials. Right,  the quantity is limited as the Israeli citizens are first to get the water, power Etc. By the way: did you ever check/ask somebody to check their waste of water, in Gaza, due to pipe's leaks that nobody over there pays attention to? If they were short of water they should, before they complain, fix/stop/eliminate all these leaks. Their problem is that they don't care about their faults and your problem is that you, not a personally blame, follow them, without checking/investigating the source/reason of the problem(s).

My conclusion Mr. V. is that you go there check all their problems one by one, then you ask them to stop threatening Israel, to put their arms aside. Then we can talk peace. They will be the ones to benefit out of it. The problem is that you take every complaint of them guaranteed while you are skeptic of Israel's version. I suggest that you behave the other way around as however, you will look at it the right side is Israel. I feel sorry for the Gazans situation but the decision is in their hands. They can improve their condition, keep it same or make it worse. Please suggest them. Finally, Please check with them what is the percentage of your claim compare to what/volume of goods that they get from Israel, daily.                                                         3. Another response. My request/invitation to visit Israel and to meet the writer: "Hey Amir, I have been to Israel/Palestine many times. I plan to visit there again sometime this year. If you are serious in your invitation to meet me, please write me privately at …….. I am happy to meet both Israelis and Palestinians.  I admit to being surprised and disappointed by your last sentence. My motto is “raise the issue but lower the temperature”. I earnestly attempt to follow that direction. You will not see any anti-semitism in my writing, nor do I allow it on my blog site.         Thank you."…………

Amir: Thank you Mr. P.L. for your reply/comment.  Yes, I am serious concerning meeting you, here in Israel. I don't see any bad in meeting people and discuss matters even if, and we are, disputed about the NP (None Palestinian-with all the sorrow it cause you, they, the Arabs, are not Palestinians. I usually use the most accurate descriptions) issue. I think that the Arabs need sympathy. Especially the poor people. The problem is that they don't act to improve their situation. On the other hand, Israel, that you have been to, many times has the ability/possibility/means to help the Arabs. So, After you travel Israel, get to know it, we meet and I learn to know you and what is your impression of Israel and how much you know about Israel (I don't mean racism/anti-Semitism) I am certain that you will be very enthusiastic about our beautiful and advanced state. My hope is that you will be that sincere to say the right impression of Israel. So, let's set a meeting.   4. Israeli sport's man won a gold medal and a Bronze one, in an international Judo competition that took place in Agadir, Morocco. The interesting point in this story is that this time, to differ from last week's competition in Doha, Qatar, although Morocco is also a Muslim state, the flag of Israel was raised on the mast for the 1st place winner. Very well done, the Israelis and the Moroccans.

Post-Mar. 9th 2018


  1. Even the night could not hide the horror of the bloody scene on the road between Duma and the safe corridor created by the Syrian Arab Army for civilians to cross from the terrorist-controlled areas in Eastern Ghouta to the points under its control. Ten-year-old Fatima was unable to do anything. She held her brother Hamza’s hand firmly and crawled in the orchards towards the nearest Syrian army checkpoint. Seeing the two children, one of the officers rushed to carry them to safety under the cover of friendly fire.

Fatima tells Al-Ahed how her father made the dangerous decision to flee with the rest of the family to the safe area set up by the Syrian army for civilians to cross. The man knew that the armed groups in Douma would forcefully dissuade him from leaving as they did with many others who were shot and put in jail. He chose nightfall to be the zero hours to embark on the most dangerous task of his life. The man carried his daughter Fatima and his wife carried Hamzah and set off for freedom that was only a short walk through the orchards.

But the militants were able to spot him with his family and rained a barrage of bullets on them, punishing them for daring to flee. At this moment, Fatima had to grow up quickly and become the father, mother, and sister to her little brother who was stunned at what he saw. As her mother groaned and her dying father repeated the Shahada, Fatima held her brother’s hand and crawled between the orchards and under fire towards the nearest Syrian army checkpoint.

One of the soldiers was alerted to a suspicious movement before shouting: “They are two children. Cover me so I can get to them.”

Thus, the night gave rise to two beautiful children trembling in fear and appealing to the army, whose soldiers and officers rushed to extend them a desperately needed lifeline and help them cross the line between slavery and freedom.

The Syrian army took Fatima and her brother Hamza to one of the shelters. Hamza appeared to be in shock. His sister Fatima was aware of this, so she hoped that we would not press him with questions. The scene of their parents’ death had not left the two children who were crying continuously. A Syrian army soldier took on the responsibility of comforting them, petting them and buying them the chocolate they desired. Grandma Um Muhammad, then, appeared to take on the daunting task of relieving Fatima and Hamza. Um Muhammad is a lady hailing from Diyabiya in Eastern Ghouta. Her husband and three children were killed fighting alongside the Syrian Arab Army.

She told Al-Ahed website, “I embraced Fatima and Hamza. I took them to a room in the shelter and gave them new clothes after showering. Then I initiated conversation with them to avoid silence in order for them not to slip into painful memories.”

Another lady from Douma waited for a long time at the safe corridor. She waited for her four married daughters, but to no avail. The embracing of Fatima and Hamza became her outlet for the longing that she felt for her daughters.

“I fear that a lot for my daughters are at home suffering from hunger in the first place. The terrorists are denying civilians food and only giving it to those who carry arms against the Syrian army,” she said.

“I hope my daughters succeed in getting out but not in the way that Fatima and her brother Hamza survived,” she added.

The shelter was full of children who made an effort to comfort Fatima and Hamza. Ahlam gets closer to Fatima, embraces her and holds her hands saying, “She is like my sister.” Fatima smiles at this love but her eyes never stop chasing her brother Hamza, who was taken by the other children to distract him. We ask Fatima about the people’s situation inside and if they wanted to get out. She immediately and without hesitation replies, “Yes, many before us tried to get out but were prevented by gunfire. There is injustice inside and hunger. Although the militants have a lot of food, yet they only give it to families whose children carry arms. They have raised the barricades to prevent people from going out and put some of them in prisons.”

The distraught smiles that Fatima timidly gave us were soon interrupted by Hamza’s cries, who was calling out to his mother. His sister Fatima rushes towards him, hugging him tightly and comforting him as much as she could. “Do not be sad my love, she is in heaven.”

With tears shed for their parents, who were unjustly slain by the gunmen at the passage to freedom, Fatima holds her brother’s hand leading him on to life’s mysterious ways after she led him through the night on the journey of death.     Amir: This story was quoted from a very anti-Israel blog. They always blame Israel for everything. This time, surprisingly, not. Syrians and Arabs make war crimes all the way and the fact that children were rescued does not mean about the honesty/innocent of these people and the necessity of the war. So, in order to eliminate pictures/events like this simply stop/don't initiate wars. Do you understand the bad things that you cause to your people and to the world???


  1. Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has described Turkey as part of a "triangle of evil" along with Iran and hardline Islamist groups, Egypt's Al-Shorouk newspaper reported on Wednesday. The Saudi prince also accused Turkey of trying to reinstate the Islamic Caliphate, abolished nearly a century ago when the Ottoman Empire collapsed. His reported comments reflect Saudi Arabia's deep suspicion of President Tayyip Erdogan, whose ruling AK Party has its roots in Islamist politics and who has allied his country with Qatar in its dispute with Saudi Arabia and some other Gulf states.                                                  Turkey has also worked with Iran, Saudi Arabia's arch-rival in the Middle East, to try to reduce fighting in northern Syria in recent months, and Iranian and Turkish military chiefs exchanged visits last year.                                                                             Al-Shorouk quoted Prince Mohammed as saying "the contemporary triangle of evil comprises Iran, Turkey, and extremist religious groups."                                                    The prince spoke to Egyptian newspaper editors during a visit to Cairo, on his first foreign trip since becoming heir to the oil-exporting giant last year.                              He said the dispute with Qatar could be long-lasting, comparing it to the U.S. embargo of Cuba imposed 60 years ago, but played down its impact, dismissing the Gulf emirate as "smaller than a Cairo street".                                                                        Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain cut diplomatic and trade links with Qatar last June, suspending air and shipping routes with the world’s biggest exporter of liquefied natural gas, which is home to the region’s biggest U.S. military base.           However, Prince Salman said Qatar would not be barred from attending an Arab summit hosted by Saudi Arabia later this month.

Amir: The Turks that were till lately a friend of the Western world switched, under the influence of their president, and turned to be one of the most religious/Islamic states in Europe. This is very bad for the free world as Ata Turk turned Turkey to a free/unreligious democracy and the current regime reversed Turkey to its dark days. Erdogan, the Turkish leader, is looking to enlarge Turkey to its historical size when the Ottomans were running Turkey. His way is to create wars and this will ignite Southern Europe and the Middle East. The Muslims are not the Muslim anymore. They are the modern Islam crusaders (I would call them Islamosaders) that aim to dominate the world. It will never happen, but if it would, they will fight each other and return the world to its 1st century. I am not Islamophobical.

3. A very interesting message: Trump accepts offer to meet Kim Jong Un  (CNN)President Donald Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May, the White House and the South Korean national security adviser said Thursday evening. "President Trump greatly appreciates the nice words of the South Korean delegation and President Moon. He will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un at a place and time to be determined. We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced in a statement.   Trump tweeted, "Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!"

  1. Who the hell needs the following: A massive explosion rocked a military base in western Iran on Wednesday, causing a large blaze at the site.                                  There were no immediate reports about injuries, the extent of the damage or the cause of the explosion.                                                                                                           The base, belonging to the 292 armored division, is situated at Dezful, Khuzestan Province, near the border with Iraq.                                                                                 The explosion was heard in Andimeshk city 15 kilometers (9 miles) away, IRIB TV reported.                                                                                                                     Kiamars Hajizadeh, director general of the crisis management department at Khuzestan province governorate, stated that the incident was under control and claimed that no one was injured in the incident. However, he also ordered residents surrounding the area to evacuate, fearing their safety                                                        IRNA, an Iranian news agency, reported that firefighters and rescue teams dispatched to the base have not been able to approach the main site of the incident due to heavy flames.                                                                                                           IRNA also reported that an outbreak of a fire and its spread to an ammunition depot have caused the series of explosions.                                                                    Amir Peace in the world could solve/eliminate all kinds of such events. Please support peace.

Post-Mar. 8th 2018

  1. While I write the post I listen to the radio, in Hebrew, The speaker is an Arab lady. She is the manager/in charge of the "sexual attacking league" in the Arab sector. It was established in the 90th when events of raping, in the Arab sector started to be a real problem. Yes, it is a problem and it needs an absolute solution. According to her, she holds the figures; Arab/Muslim girls/women suffer in their locations sexual attacks and raping. She claims that the Gov/state of Israel is doing nothing to fight these phenomena. She claims that the investment to prevent/remove/eliminate the attacks is not enough. She claim that the Gov. is spending/investing too much money in keeping the security in the Jewish sector while the Arab sector is not covered the way she wants/sees/expect. Yes, she is right. The Arabs are much less protected. In Israel, the Jewish sector built some self rules/laws that unfortunately, not everybody follows. Most of the Jews are educated to respect the other. The ones that are not educated know that if they do wrong his family, as well, can be exposed to the same/similar crime. So, the events of rape/sexual attacks in the Jewish sector were minimized. The Arabs must understand that without having self control, which means everybody must control and improve his behavior, no investment will help to reduce/eliminate the rape phenomena in the Arab sector. Rappers will continue raping as this a sickness. The correction is by education. It will not catch in education system that teach rapping/stoning/killing of women and sometimes even glorifies it. The Israeli police can't dedicate too much force to deal with the Arabs and leave the Jewish sector that needs its police time. So, you Arabs not only in Israel, all over the world, behave yourself and start taking the rape as a top criminal and stop learning/following the bad things/suggestions/stories in the Quran. There are too much of it and this washes the brains of the Islam believers (not all of them but the major part).
  2. We learn from the media how bad in the situation in Gaza. We learn it also from the direct contacts that there are between Israeli and Gazan farmers. The question is who is responsible for it and what must be done tom improve the situation over there that influence only the lower income people. I already wrote about working in Israel and earn money. The Gazans rejected it. Now, they, the Gazans, must look for a solution as the crisis or what is near to it, is an NP (not Palestinian) internal problem. If they reject the Israeli solution, which can be implemented tomorrow morning, they are really unreal people. I assume that such unreal people drag Gaza to unreal situation and the distance to a danger action, war, is very short. So, listing to Israel and adopting our solution can be the best solution for all parties/concerned.

3. Founded in 2015 by Michael Joseph and the Israeli-born Har-Even, Ion Pacific employs a 25-person team in offices in Hong Kong, London, and now Tel Aviv. It invests in companies directly, and also supplies financial consulting services, emphasizing a connection between Asian markets and other global markets.                                                                             According to Mr. Har-Even, Ion Pacific began its activity in Israel late last year and has invested approximately $45 million locally to date. Ion Pacific has invested $15 million in fintech startup Credorax and approximately $30 million in two unnamed local venture firms, Mr. Har-Even said.                                                                                                                               “The interest in Israeli technology and intellectual property was absolutely massive, and for us, it made a ton of sense to do more and more work here,” Ion Pacific Founder and co-CEO Itamar Har-Even told on Monday.                                                     Mr. Har-Even characterized the company’s activity in Israel as “a bridge in and out of Asia.”                                                     According to Mr. Har-Even, Asian interest in Israel is directed at deep technology in fields such as artificial intelligence, big data analysis and data storage, highly complex communication technologies, robotics, biotech, and clean energy.

Amir: Even if Israel is good enough to such large banks/investors it is not for small Gazan Hamas Gov. as the Chinese has no hatred in their hearts while the Arabs have only hatred one against the other and only then against Israel. Their hatred is te thing that hold them backward of reconstruction their country.

  1. The Egyptian President hosted the crown prince of S. Arabia. As a jester they went to see a play on stage called "Give you up". This play deals with the problems/difficulties those Arab youngsters face. Some of subjects that were mentioned were Unemployment, Drugs, Violence in the family, sexual abuse, and even joining the terror movements by young extremists. Amir: What more than these we need to understand the deep problem/hardships that the Islam world is in. Their biggest problem is that they deny/don't want to repair/fix the big break. They trust too much the Quran. I heard, by mine hear and watched it afterwards on TV, how the Imams tell them that the world will improve after the Islam and Muslim will lead the world. The funny thing is that they believe it. They believe also that 72 virgins are waiting for Shahids in the sky. Well, I can only hope that there were as less as possible such stupid people in the world.
  2. More Israeli technology that will ease our lives and make them safer: Edgybees Ltd., an Israel-based startup, has developed a technology to enhance the awareness of first responders in emergency situations, by layering 3-D mapping and other data onto live video feeds from drones, airplanes, and cars. The startup, which has just completed a $5.5 million funding round, was among one of three selected to present its technology at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) annual policy conference on Sunday.

The technology has received an “overwhelming response” from industrial and commercial drone users in the field of public safety and search and rescue, especially in the US, said Adam Kaplan, co-founder and CEO of Edgybees, in a phone interview upon arrival at the AIPAC conference.                                                                                                                              “Seven months ago, we were entirely a video game company,” he said. “After releasing our game to the public in May, we quickly adapted it to the needs of first responders, and by August and September, our software was running effectively to help first responders during Hurricane Irma,” Kaplan said.                                                                                                                 Edgybees’s First Response app uses an algorithm to create and layer three-dimensional mapping onto visuals from live video-feeds of drones, cameras mounted on cars, and body accessories to provide a realistic picture to first responders in emergency situations.                                                                                                                                                                                   The company’s technological innovation is led by Menashe Haskin, ITS chief technology officer, who used to manage the Israeli development office of Amazon Prime Air, and holds over 35 US patents in the fields of aerospace, video and vision processing, and data processing and communication.                                                                                                                             First Response was successfully used in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma to map and identify distress calls in flooded areas and the Northern California fires to keep firefighters out of harm’s way last October, the company said.                                       While existing drone videos were already providing visual imagery to first responders, they were not capable of helping them make sense of what they were seeing and determining crucial information, like identifying the location of distress signals, the placement of power lines and the positions of other first responders                                                                       Edgybees’s augmented reality software layers maps and data with this information onto videos in real-time, providing the first responders with a clearer picture of what is going on to help them better manage the crisis.                                                 “Video without context is less powerful,” said Kaplan, and Edgybees set out to provide the context needed.                           Kaplan has co-founded and served on executive teams of several companies which have been acquired in recent years including Xennex Inc., Athoc, Digital Guardian and Tonian.                                                                                                                    Among the investors of the startup are Motorola Solutions Venture Capital, Verizon Ventures, OurCrowd, 8VC, NFX and Aspect Ventures, the startup said in a statement.                                                                                                                                         2017 was a record-breaking year for weather- and climate-related disasters in the US, with 16 separate billion-dollar disaster events reaching an accumulative cost of more than $300 billion, according to the data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.                                                                                                                                                                  Aside from using the seed funding to bring its technology to areas such as defense, smart cities, automotive, and broadcast media, Edgybees plans to create a platform to enable developers to create their applications shortly, Kaplan said.

  1. “Linda Sarsour Arrested At The US Capitol,” Authorities arrested Linda Sarsour at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s office Monday while demanding Ryan meet with her and others protesting current inaction on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA) program.                           An outspoken Muslim activist, advocate of Sharia law and co-chair of the Women’s March, Sarsour — along with Zahra Billoo and Omar Suleiman, Dawud Walid, Talib Shareef, Nihad Awad and Mujahid Fletcher from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — were arrested for civil disobedience according to                                                                  “We don’t want to live based on fear. We want to live according to the principles of freedom of speech, of religion,” said Fletcher, an immigrant from Columbia who doesn’t want to see DACA end.                                                                                      Sarsour and her cohorts sought to speak with Ryan about President Donald Trump ending the renewal of the DACA program.                                                                                                                                                                                                         Monday marked the last day that legislators could provide an alternate solution for the DACA program, but the Supreme Court delayed the deadline for up to a year.                                                                                                                                              A group of DREAMers also protested in front of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Monday with the aim of criticizing Democrats for not passing a permanent fix to the DREAM Act. Approximately two dozen activists gathered in the street outside of the DNC before blocking its front doors and refusing to let staffers enter or exit….                                      Amir: This is how the people make use of the democracy. They think that everything is permitted. It is because they were grown up under the sharia laws. Once she got rid of these laws they lose their balance and behave wildly.

  1. Apartheid in Israel? This research shows, very clearly, the Israeli aim/efforts to integrate the Arab's work force into the Israeli work market. Please read it carefully although it contains a lot of statistical figures. It is hard but possible to understand. You will conclude the learning of this study with resolution that there is no Apartheid in Israel. If you missed it reread this article. The study shows that when taking into account the Arab Israeli population’s lower socioeconomic status, the rate of matriculation eligibility among Arab Israeli women is higher than that of Jewish women. In addition, many Arab Israeli women are choosing science and engineering majors in high school subjects that are associated with a potential for high future wages. Over 70% of Arab Israeli women who qualify for a matriculation certificate study these majors, compared with only 39% of Jewish women, the study showed.                                                                                                             The enrollment of Arab Israeli women in higher education institutions also rose significantly between 2008 and 2013, while among Arab Israeli men there was almost no change at all. The largest increase, almost 50%, took place among Bedouin and Druze women. However, despite this increase, gaps still remain between the groups: in 2014, about half of Jewish and Arab Christian women aged 30-33 held an academic degree, whereas the percentage of academics was only 23% among Muslim women, 19% among Druze, and 16% among the Bedouin. Given the increase in enrollment rates in recent years, the gap is expected to narrow, the Taub Center said.                                                                                                                          The study also shows that a large percentage of Arab Israeli women are pursuing degrees in education: 42% among Muslim women and 46% among Bedouin women, compared to about 20% among Arab Christians and Druze and 16% among Jews. Still, even if a large portion of Arab Israeli women major in science in high school, the share of those who continue to study these fields in higher education is low. Some 31% of Jewish women pursue sciences in higher education, while just 21% of Arab Christian women, 22% of Druze women and only 9% of Muslim women do so.                                                                           The improvement in educational achievements, which has narrowed the gaps between Arab Israeli and Jewish women, is however not yet reflected to the same degree in employment, the study showed.                                                                               The rise in the employment rate of Arab Israeli women aged 25-54 is not as high as expected: their employment rate rose to 35% in 2016, from 21% in 2000, compared with a similar increase among Jewish women, whose employment rate is, however, 80%.                                                                                                                                                                                             Interestingly, the employment rate of Arab Israeli women aged 45-54 with no academic education rose from 10% to 20%. Among Arab Israeli women with an academic degree, the employment rate stands at about 75% and has not changed much over the past decade.                                                                                                                                                                                          “The low employment rate among all Arab Israeli women is surprising given their improvements in the realm of education,” the Taub researchers said in the statement. “The employment rate in the 25-64 age group was 34% in 2017, which is still far from the target rate set by the government for 2020 – 41%. However, the increase in the share of Arab Israeli women pursuing higher education likely indicates an improvement in their integration into the labor market in the coming years, since the employment rate of Arab Israeli female academics is much higher than that of women without an academic education.”                                                                                                                                                                                                           The Taub Center study also found that a particularly high percentage of Arab Israeli women work in the field of education: over 50% of Muslim, Bedouin, and Druze women who have an academic degree — more than three times the share of Jewish women degree-holders employed in this field. This figure also includes many Arab Israeli women who earned a degree in a subject other than education, but work in the field nonetheless.                                                                                          So, even if the study points to the “great potential for further growth” in the workforce for Arab Israeli women due to their increased share in higher education, there are many challenges that remain.                                                                                      The scores of Israeli Arab women on psychometric exams are still low and they have low proficiency in the Hebrew language.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  In a recent interview, the head of the Israel Innovation Authority, said Israeli Arabs could account for as much as 20% of the local technology force.                                                                                                                                                                                       Since 2012, the government has set up a number of programs to help Arab Israelis integrate into the labor market and the high-tech industry in an effort to boost economic growth and reduce income inequality. Just 5.7% of Arab Israelis are employed in the high-tech industry and only 2% of those are employed in R&D, according to Israel’s Innovation Authority 2016 report.                                                                                                                                                                                                     The Taub researchers said it is possible to confront the challenges faced by the Arab population in several ways: by improving the Arab education system; advising students to increase awareness of professions that are in demand; providing guidance as they navigate academic studies and enter the labor market; and increasing employment opportunities for workers in Arab Israeli localities and the surrounding areas.                                                                                “We decided to publish a brief that deals with the education and employment of Arab Israeli women in preparation for International Women’s Day and in light of the government goals to promote the Arab Israeli population in the coming years,”  Taub Center executive director Prof. Avi Weiss said in the statement. “Alongside improving trends, there are problematic areas and barriers facing Arab Israeli women, who could be a significant source of growth in the Israeli economy in the coming years. Therefore it is very important to pay attention to this topic.”
  2. This is another story of the apartheid state-Israel. Please read carefully: What do an instructor from Iran who chose the path of peace, a Jordanian who trained in martial arts with the royal family in Dubai, an Egyptian who serves in the karate federation in Iraq, and a Turkish man who promoted karate for women in his country have in common? They were all participants in the Budo for Peace International Martial Arts Seminar that took place in Raanana last month, marking the fourth anniversary of a gathering of leading athletes who are using the martial arts to promote coexistence, respect, and peace. They hailed from the Middle East, Japan, Australia, and Greece.                                                                          The visiting sensei, or masters, conveyed a strong and united message that the trek was not politically motivated in any way but instead a call to promote values of peace among the youth.                                                                                                     “Our purpose is to teach younger generations to know peace better, not by violent means but by doing martial arts and showing the values of respect to one another — most importantly not to hurt one another,” said Mikdat Kahraman, a master martial arts teacher from Ankara, Turkey.                                                                                                                                Most traditional martial arts follow a code of conduct that demands and gives respect, arouses humility and develops a sense of equality among its followers. Such behaviors as wearing simple uniforms, practicing barefoot and competing on mats, which are seen as a sacred space, help connect with the values of humility, respect, and peace, they say.                       “As you can see, no one here is different. We are not separating people by politics or religion. Our white dress reminds us we are all equal,” said Ghazi Keyvan, who helmed Iran’s team at the Allstar Europa Championships in karate, as he prepared to lead the training exercises.                                                                                                                                                     While competitors in other sports do not want to shake hands with Israeli competitors, due to political and ideological differences, the entire philosophy of martial arts is to demonstrate respect toward one another, said Keyvan.                               Respect is one of the most important and longstanding aspects of martial arts. Many schools require you to bow upon entering as a sign of respect, among other customs that students have to uphold, he added.                                                         The two-day seminar opened with an advanced training course in which master-level practitioners from Turkey, Iran, Jordan, Egypt and the Palestinian Authority taught Israeli instructors and students martial arts techniques and facilitated the exchange of new ideas.                                                                                                                                                                                 The idea that one should control aggression without inflicting injury upon one’s opponents is a fundamental teaching in the sport, said Mohamed Saied, who is another master teacher and executive director of the Georgian National Karate Federation.                                                                                                                                                                                                            The practice of martial arts, although it appears violent, redirects the physical force and anger of opponents without harming them. That is why many of the techniques involve deflecting the opponent’s kicks and throws than attacking the opponent directly, he said.                                                                                                                                                                                    On the second day more than 300 children, young adults and their teachers from Arab, Jewish orthodox, secular, Ethiopian and Bedouin backgrounds, who are part of the Budo for Peace network of martial arts schools, participated in the martial arts practice and training with the visiting masters.                                                                                                                                      For Danny Hakim, founder and chairman of Budo for Peace (BPF), who has tirelessly worked to help people, especially youth, to connect and know others from across the world through karate for more than 14 years, these values are a core foundation that can help to promote peace across in the world.                                                                                                                  A grand ceremony was held at the end of the evening attended by community members and distinguished guests including the ambassadors of Japan, Turkey, and Australia.                                                                                                                                            “I have been here as an ambassador for two years. I am gratified to know that so many Israeli people have embraced martial arts and are using it as a means for promoting peace,” said Koji Tomita, Japan’s ambassador to Israel, who commended Hakim for his drive, energy and leadership for the project.                                                                                                 The Turkish ambassador to Israel, Mekin Mustafa Kemal Ökem, who attended with his wife and son, both karate practitioners, said that he was “delighted to see martial arts being used to teach younger generations the importance of the vision of peace.”                                                                                                                                                                                              “When it comes to arts, sports, and music all of humanity speaks the same language, that’s why it’s the best way to convey piece solidarity and friendship. This is what we should be supporting,” said Ökem.                                                                                     In the closing program, Hakim talked about how getting together in forums like the seminar helps to break down ignorance and fear.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    “It takes a great amount of courage for these masters to come here today to Israel,”  he said.                                                          “Part of the process is to create exchanges between children from all sectors of society in Israel. Through our work we break down ignorance and fear and build bridges between people and communities,” Hakim said.
