so, will all those people and governments boycotting Israel, whether as part of the BDS or in other forms of boycott groups, boycott the Ebola cure?
It seems right now, only an Israeli company has the ability to produce the one medicine that works against ebola…
I’d like to see them take the moral high ground now…
Israel will be boycotted, or at least, they keep talking about ut.
No matter how of those africans die. And if they do die, Israel will be blamed for it.
Israel must understand, that she cannot buy the goodwill of the anti-semites/leftists.
Power matters. And the rising powers of Asia.
And the African friends Israel can now make, by curing Ebola there.
AGAINST ALL ODDS - 5 YEAR OLD SYRIAN BOY SAVED BY ISRAELI DOCTORS
A five-year-old Syrian boy “miraculously” survived being hit by a stray bullet in his home after his father rushed him across the border to a field hospital in Israel, in order to save his sons life.
The boy was initially treated for bleeding and later transferred to Rambam hospital in Haifa in Israel.
Surgeons managed to remove the bullet from the child’s neck, situated millimeters from the main blood vessels, in a delicate operation lasting several hours.
Since the conflict began in 2011, around 1,200 Syrians have been treated in Israel.

Times of Israel reports:Using uncharacteristically harsh language, Washington officials launched a coordinated attack on Israeli plans to push forward new housing in East Jerusalem on Wednesday, saying the move would distance Israel from “even its closest allies” and raise questions about its commitment to seeking peace with Palestinians.
The nearly identical comments from State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki and White House spokesman Josh Earnest came hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrapped up a meeting with US President Barack Obama during which he pitched for the US and Israel to work together to boost other Arab states’ involvement in the Palestinian peace process.
Psaki said the US was “deeply concerned” over Israel’s approval last week to advance the construction of some 2,500 housing units in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Givat Hamatos.
“This step is contrary to Israel’s stated goal and it would send a very troubling message if they proceed with tenders or construction,” Psaki said, adding the move would “call into question Israel’s ultimate commitment to a peaceful negotiated settlement.”
“This development will only draw condemnation from the international community, distance Israel from even its closest allies, poison the atmosphere not only with the Palestinians but also with the very Arab governments with which Prime Minister Netanyahu said he wanted to build relations,” she said, calling her own language “strong.”
At the White House, Earnest echoed Psaki’s language and said the issue was discussed between Obama and Netanyahu.Virtually all of the coverage of this story misses one important detail:
Many of the housing units approved are earmarked for the Arab neighborhood of Beit Safafa!
i24 is one of the very few outlets that mentioned this:I’m not sure if it is quite half, according to this anti-settlement organization about 900 units are meant to expand Beit Safafa. Even so, when all of the articles about this issue mention “2610 housing units in Givat Hamatos,”Jerusalem’s municipality said the procedure is only a bureaucratic one and not a political decision. The municipality also argued that half of the 2,610 homes will be allocated to the Arab population and the rest to Jews.
So either the US is telling Israel that they must not allow Arabs in Arab neighborhoods to build, or the US is only objecting to houses meant for Jews.
Last year I interviewed Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat and he described how he responds to American officials who insist on a freeze in Jerusalem building, using this very point:What do you really mean? Because we’ve just been investing over a half a billion shekels on infrastructure and roads (in the Arab sector.) We’re building 500 classrooms in the Arab sector…And we’re registering many, many buildings for the residents of east Jerusalem. My question was, what do you mean by ‘freeze.’ Freeze everything? Or, God forbid, is somebody hinting, ‘Wait a minute. Before you give someone a permit, check him out. If he’s Jewish, freeze him, if he is Muslim or Christian give him a license’? …Is somebody hinting to us to look at the color of his skin, to look at his religion before we give him a permit and a license?
Usually I don’t get any answers back.
The entire interview is very worthwhile if you want to learn what is really going in in Jerusalem, not the spin that the media uses.
uh, that is hard

Author Alan Dershowitz: How to defeat ISIS? Ask Israel
Alan Dershowitz explains why Israel’s strategy in combatting Hamas serves as the blueprint the US should use versus ISIS.
Intel, the leading chip, microprocessor and computer hardware manufacturer has decided to spend $6 billion to upgrade its Kiryat Gat chip manufacturing plant, in one of the biggest single investments ever by a foreign company in Israel. The deal is expected to generate thousands of jobs.

Don’t know what that is? This mission, also known as “on the wings of eagles,” brought nearly the entire community of Yemenite Jews to Israel: 50,000 people.
Many of them never saw an airplane before but believed in the prophecy of G-d’s promise to bring the Jews to Israel on “wings of eagles,” hence the mission’s nickname.

Well, well… not the first time, isn’t it?
President Hussein Obama may not know what to do with ISIS, but Channel 2 reports that Israel has told him in no uncertain terms that if ISIS reaches Jordan, Israel will act.The TV report did not specify what actions Israel might take if Islamic State started…
The US has persuaded 10 states in the Middle East to take part in the offensive against IS.
Which means, I believe, that the US would bomb and provide intel for the operations, but the neighbouring arab states, the Kurds and possibly Turkey would send their “boots on the ground” to the battlefields.
In other words, the US politics have created a political chaos on the Middle East, and Obama wants, that others pay the price for it.
It is hard to imagine anything more colonial, more imperial, than that. Considering Obama’s socialist, anti-imperialist attitude it is minimum strange.
On the other hand, this is not necessarily a bad strategy. The arab countries and Iran have long been playing with fire over there, which has been a burden for the US and Israel. They have been successfully exporting their own poisonous ideology to each other and to the world, while managing to maintain a sort of stability at home.
Now the monster they created is growing stronger and stronger and his territory is in their backyards.
The new strategy of the US in this theatre is to create a balance within the region, by strengthening the temporarily weaker parties and letting nobody becoming strong enough to be able to overcome the others.
In other words, as long as the Turks, Kurds, Qatar, the Saudis and Iran are constantly watching each other’s steps, the US must not be engaged in a war, but can keep its influence in the region.
The big question is, if it is not too late for this policy and how can Iran be prevented from owning nuclear weapons.
We see from his Twitter account that Australia’s energetic ambassador to Israel, Dave Sharma, is paying a visit to Kerem Shalom, the optimistically-named ‘Vineyard of Peace’ terminal through which goods-laden trucks pass between the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and Israel.

Israel shown on map during “Arab Idol,” Arabs freak outDuring an episode of the popular “Arab Idol” singing competition shown on Saudi Arabia’s MBC, the above shocking graphic was briefly shown: Oh. My. Allah.
That evil word, the One Whose Name Must Not Be Said, was shown, in English, for a couple of seconds on Arab TV!
The audience went into full rabid conspiracy mode, of course. People accused Saudi Arabia of “normalizing” relations with Israel. Internet activists demanded a boycott of MBC.
Hundreds showed their indignation on Twitter with the hashtag “اسمها_فلسطين” meaning “It’s called Palestine.” Here is the reaction of one angry tweeter:Palestinian singers made a video demanding an apology, even though their own government recognizes Israel.
The show immediately apologized for what they said was a technical error. The map was briefly shown during a montage video segment showing all the places that auditions were held. It was “corrected” immediately so even the same montage when shown later did not have the hugely offensive word “Israel.”
"Deranged" is too mild a word to describe the insane reaction to this kerfuffle.
Hatred of Israel provides the few tiny particles of unity that still exist in the Arab world.
A report by the New York Times exposes Qatar’s influence on Martin Indyk, US representative to the negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, who is highly critical of Israel.
What a coincidence… the article is worth reading…
