Israeli Universities blessing the world



Tel Aviv University logo (GRAPHIC) Ben-Gurion University of the Negev has teamed up with several private and governmental agencies from Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority to help communities prepare for natural disasters and other emergencies. The project is sponsored by the Regional Cooperation Ministry and the European Commission's Partnership for Peace Program. "The proposed project aims at developing regional collaboration for empowering community emergency response in the Middle East," said project director Dr. Bruria Adini, who is a member of the BGU Health Science Faculty's emergency medicine department. Meanwhile, Tel Aviv University signed a "sister universities" agreement with Northwestern University in the US state of Illinois this week. Read More

Israeli Army Helps Palestinian Traffic Accident Victims

The Israeli army is regularly painted as a heartless oppressor of Palestinian Arabs. But the reality on the ground more often then not simply does not support that view.

For instance, on Tuesday a Palestinian minibus was involved in a traffic accident in central Judea (the southern part of the so-called “West Bank”). Israeli army forces stationed in the area were notified, and did not hesitate to dispatch a medical team to the scene.

The four Israeli army medics provided care to each of the 20 Palestinian bus passengers. Red Crescent ambulances arrived a short time later and transferred the wounded to area hospitals. In severe cases, the army medics will often transfer Palestinian victims to more advanced medical centers in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv.



Cpt. Karin Yamin, the officer in charge of the unit that responded to Tuesday’s accident, told the IDF blog: “For the soldiers in my unit, saving lives is a priority. Whether the patients are Israeli, Palestinian, Christian or Druze, we take care of them all in the same way. We also provide equipment to Red Crescent ambulances, especially when we see that they lack medical equipment.”

Cpt. Yamin said the Palestinians she and her soldiers treated were very thankful for the care they received at the hands of the Israelis.

When Lies Become Truth

Wednesday, April 02, 2014 | Aviel Schneider

The conflict over the Promised Land ultimately revolves around the right of succession or inheritance. Against this background, Jordanian tribal leader Sheikh Ahmad Adwan caused a stir when he declared that the Holy Land rightfully belongs to the Jews.

At the same time, several Israeli media outlets reported on the escalating religious struggle for the Holy Land. In his new book "To Whom Does This Land Belong?", Israeli Professor Nissim Dana examines the numerous Islamic passages according to which Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) was and still is promised to the Children of Israel.

The religious aspect of the conflict is beginning to rival the political in the hearts and minds of many Israelis.

Muslim Mob Murders Young Christian Girl

Muslim Mob Murders Young Christian Girl

By Onan Coca / 4 April 2014

In yet another display of Islamic “peace” and tolerance, a young Christian girl who was delivering medicine to an elderly woman in a local church, was pulled from her car then beaten and stabbed to death by an angry Muslim mob. Eyewitnesses say that her crime was especially heinous – she had a cross hanging from the rear view mirror of her vehicle!

Oh, the Horror.

This continues the 1300+ year trend of Islamic aggression and violence towards anyone who is not like them.

An eyewitness appearing on “90 minutes,” a program on the al-Mehwar satellite network, said 25-year-old Mary Sameh George was attacked in her car near a church, where she planned to deliver medicine to an ill and elderly woman.

Mary Sameh GeorgeProtestors climbed onto her car, collapsing the roof, then hauled her from the vehicle, beating and mauling her – to the extent, he said, that portions of her scalp were torn off. She was stabbed multiple times, her throat was slit and when she was dead, the mob torched her car.

One Coptic outlet said that according to the health ministry, the young woman had been stabbed at least a dozen times.

The death of Mary Sameh George received little coverage in Egyptian newspapers.

Christianity is disappearing from the Islamic world thanks to constant pressure being placed on Christians from the Islamic communities. While the political regimes in most of these countries give lip service to religious “freedom” and democratic principles – that’s where they stop. Most of these Islamic regimes have no desire (and no incentive) to defend the rights of Christian minorities in their nations. In fact, protecting Christians could make it more difficult for governments to keep power – so they don’t.

Pray for the Copts of Egypt and other Christians scattered throughout the Islamic world – they need our support.

US Welcomes 19 of Nigeria’s Muslim Governors but Blocks Visa of Lone Christian Gov

Posted on April 4, 2014 by V2A — 1 Comment ↓

I’ve reported for over a year now about the brutal slaughter of over a thousand Christians by radical Muslims in Nigeria. Like many nations in the area and in the Middle East, Nigeria is predominately Muslim. There is a significant Christian population that lives in the northern regions of the African nation. However, Nigeria’s Muslims are determined to eradicate their country of any and all Christians.

In mid-November last year, Ann Buwalda, Executive Director of Jubilee Campaign said that around 1,200 Christians had been killed in northern Nigeria. She didn’t say how many more had been wounded in the attacks, but surely it was several thousand.

While thousands of Christians are being attacked, beaten, raped, burned and murdered, the United States government has sat by silently. The only condemnation they have made is against Nigeria’s ban on same-sex marriage. Our government is quick to condemn the actions of Christians, Jews and others, but are extremely hesitant to say the slightest word against Obama’s Muslim buddies.

Christian Couple Sentenced to Death under Sharia for Alleged

ViestiKirjoittaja Annukka » 07.04.2014 08:07

Christian Couple Sentenced to Death under Sharia for Alleged Text Messages Insulting Mohammed

Suzanne Hamner

The purported religion of peace and tolerance has once again displayed its zest but this time in Pakistan. According to a news report by The Blaze, a Christian couple in Pakistan has been given the death sentence for allegedly sending a local Imam a text blaspheming the prophet Mohammed. It is unlikely the couple will be executed, according to the BBC, since Pakistan has a de facto moratorium on the death penalty. However, it does not change the fact that, in Pakistan, sharia law exists as evidenced by the blasphemy laws subjected citizens to cruel punishment for insulting the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

The accused couple, Shafqat Emmanuel and Shagufta Kausar, has denied the charges and their lawyer, Nadeem Hassan, believes the trial was conducted unfairly.


Imagine that – an unfair trial in a country that has instituted some sharia laws.

In the report by Sharona Schwartz for The Blaze:


The Imam, Maulvi Mohammed Hussain, of the local mosque in Gojra – a town with a history of violence against Christians – filed the complaint against them last July, accusing them of sending him the text message which he characterized as insulting to the Prophet Mohammed.


According to AFP, the imam said the husband sent the message from his wife's cell phone. However, the couple's lawyer said the message was sent from a phone his clients had lost before July.


"The defense lawyer said that the couple had suspected rivals of implicating them into blasphemy case to settle personal scores and that they had ties with the complainant," AFP wrote.


The BBC reported that critics have argued the blasphemy laws in Pakistan are misused in order to settle personal vendettas and unfairly target members of minority groups.

Shafqat Emmanuel and Shagufta Kausar are in their forties, have three children and are among the impoverished according to their lawyer.

This is just another incident in Pakistan where "tolerance" is shown through the imparting of sharia law. In December, an elderly Pakistani doctor was arrested and accused of blasphemy; his crime was "'posing as a Muslim' after reportedly being secretly recorded reading a verse from the Koran." The man is 72 years old and a member of the Ahmadi faith, "a minority Muslim group often persecuted by the mainstream Muslim community.




Gojra is the same town where a Christian neighborhood was attacked in 2009. The mob burned 77 houses, killing seven people after rumors circulated that a desecration of the Koran had taken place.

While this incident occurred in Pakistan and many may wonder why it should concern Americans, it is an indication of how Islamic sharia law operates. In America, there is still freedom of religion, speech and press. Americans see almost on a daily basis many individuals blaspheme God. It is seen in desecration of religious monuments, speech or unflattering portrayal of Jesus described as "expression art." We hear of the destruction of the Holy Bible by our own military operating in Muslim countries using the excuse of it being "offensive" should it be found by a non-Christian. However, in the United States, someone is not sentenced to death for any of these actions. It is recognized that individuals have the freedom to practice their religion or not practice a religion, as per their choice.

No one would be sentenced to death for refusing to be Christian or engaging in blasphemy against God. Those who blaspheme against God are punished, but not by a civil government court system. In Islam, those who do not "convert" to Islam can be killed, enslaved or "taxed" and those who blaspheme are killed as part of their sharia "law." Yes, there are numerous "free will" choices in Islam. News reports are filled with the violence committed by Muslims against those individuals that have been deemed to violate some form of their sharia.

It's interesting that the term "mainstream Muslim community" was used to describe the group who persecuted a minority sect. It would indicate that the majority of the Muslim community is what most individuals would term "radical" or "extreme." The majority of Muslims would have you believe that only a small fraction of their religious sect is intolerant, harsh, unyielding and practice an extreme interpretation of Islam. In looking at the rate of Christian deaths in majority Muslim countries and the increased persecution of Christians in those same countries, one would have difficulty subscribing to the "small fraction" of Muslims practicing extremist rhetoric. It must be remembered that Muslims are allowed to "lie" or practice taqiyya in order to deceive those termed "infidels" until their numbers are large enough to overcome resistance. The phrase by a Turkish Imam declaring, "Islam is Islam," should never be forgotten.

It is also further evidence that the professed "religion of peace and tolerance" is everything, but tolerant and peaceful as exhibited by habitual, continual, exacerbating violence against "non-believers" or those who violate sharia law. What is happening there can happen here if an inch is given or exception made in our justice system to accommodate one "special interest" group. Once that inch is given, how long would it take to get to that mile?

Abraham and the Old Man

Evening's Inspirational Story

Abraham and the Old Man

According to a traditional Hebrew story, Abraham was sitting outside his tent one evening when he saw an old man, weary from age and journey, coming toward him. Abraham rushed out, greeted him, and then invited him into his tent. There he washed the old man’s feet and gave him food and drink.

The old man immediately began eating without saying any prayer or blessing. So Abraham asked him, “Don’t you worship God?”

The old traveler replied, “I worship fire only and reverence no other god.”

When he heard this, Abraham became incensed, grabbed the old man by the shoulders, and threw him out his tent into the cold night air.

After the old man was gone, God called to his friend Abraham and asked where the stranger was. Abraham replied, “I forced him out because he did not worship You.”

God answered, “I have suffered him these eighty years although he dishonors me. Could you not endure him one night?”


"My son, keep your father’s command and do not forsake your mother’s teaching."
