    As a Canadian I can't imagine what it must be like to live with
    this magnitude of terrorist threat on a day to day basis.

    The idea of becoming a Proselyte to Judaism and perhaps immigrating to Israel......
    (at least for several months each year)....... has been on my mind for many years........
    A. P. has got me thinking about this again.

    Do not think too much. Go for it.
    I visited Israel several times. It's a magical place.
    I felt safer in Tel Aviv far more than from the streets of Belgium, London, and Paris.
    It's true that a little expensive there.
    It's true that it's not as clean as Singapore.
    But the atmosphere is amazing, people smile, Jerusalemites are wonderful and welcoming to every tourist.
    The world's fanatical and leftist media portray Israel as a third world country, but it is one of the most advanced in the world, and all this has been done in just 70 years.
    Canada is cold most of the year .. Temperatures in the Middle East are as warm and nice as in California.
    The great thing about Canada is that from today you have legal marijuana :banana:

    Thank you for the encouragement.......
    I am attempting to set up some things here in Canada that could turn out to be highly relevant to the entire nation of Israel.......

    The author that I quoted in the opening post has an amazing story to tell.......
    She had a near death experience in 1967....... She was Roman Catholic at the time of her NDE and
    was told that she was genetically Jewish.... and should make Aliyah to Israel.

    DIVINE TRUTHS REVEALED

    We are facing a very serious problem here in Nova Scotia, Canada and I think that the technology for the best long term answer to our dilemma has already been developed in Israel.

    If average ocean levels rose by eight to ten cms (3 or 4 inches) could high tide...

    ... rise by one meter in the Isthmus of Chignecto in Nova Scotia, Canada?
    This question is logical because the geography of Canada's Bay of Fundy produces the world's highest tides. In my part of Nova Scotia in Guysborough County there is very little funnelling of tidal waters......... so high tide is only about one to one point five meters above low tide.

    In the eastern area of the Bay of Fundy high tide levels are up by ten to fifteen meters.
    ........

    I believe that Canada, Israel, Australia and the USA need to coordinate our efforts and begin such large scale desalination of ocean water that we actually succeed in preventing ocean levels from rising at all no matter what happens on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, Greenland or the world's glaciers.

    Should Sorek 2 be in Australia or California?

    As a reasonably well traveled American, I cannot imagine what it must be like to live under the oldest & most murderous, foreign funded Occupation in history. Meanwhile, I think you should also consider that the Israelis tend to grossly exaggerate the frequency and intensity of so called "terror attacks"(*)

    I don't think that you'll be especially welcome in becoming a Proselyte to Judaism if I understand you correctly.
    Do you mean that you are going to try to convert Jews to Christianity?

    At any rate, I don't think that your openly expressing your Christian beliefs will be especially welcome in Israel especially with the addition of their "Nationality Law" which relegates all non Jews to a second (or third) rate status.

    Good luck in whatever your undertaking & , if you go to Israel, don't forget to pack an umbrella(1).

    (1) "Christians in Jerusalem Want Jews to Stop Spitting on Them"

    (2) "Israel Is Not As Christian-Friendly As You Think"
    http://imemc.org/article/75889/
    Hundreds of such attacks have taken place, including graffiti like “Jesus is garbage,” “Jesus is a monkey,” “Jesus is dead,” “Death to Arabs,” “Death to Christians,” and “Mary is a prostitute.”

    Christians (as well as Muslims) in Israel and Palestine have been subject to milder forms of state-sponsored persecution through discriminatory laws for decades. Since 1993 Israel has requiredPalestinians, in what the American Friends Service Committee describes as a “draconian system of movement controls [that] has become increasingly institutionalized and restrictive,” to obtain a military permit to visit their holy sites, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Noble Sanctuary mosque complex, in Jerusalem’s Old City. This permit is almost impossible to procure, and effectively restricts millions of Christians’ and Muslims’ freedom of movement and worship.

    Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy has created a website and smartphone app which are being used by “hundreds of thousands” of Israel supporters to comb through social media. They use their keyboards to “influence the conversation,” “stop the hate,” and “end the lies.” In reality, their assignment is to whitewash: to defend the reputation of Israel by neutralizing factual but negative press and repudiate unsavory but accurate news.

    What else do American Christians need to understand about their brothers and sisters in the Holy Land? That Christians and Muslims are bound together under Israeli oppression: the Muslim majority does not persecute Christians as western media would have us think. Archbishop Sebastia Theodosios, of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem, stated, “We the Palestinian Christians suffer along with the rest of Palestinians from occupation and hardships of our economic situation. Muslims and Christians suffer equally, as there is no difference in suffering for any of us. We are all living in the same complicated circumstances, and overcoming the same difficulties.”CONTINUED

    No.... I am a Christian Universalist so I feel no pressure to convert Jews to my version of the Messianic Gentile movement.

    I do NOT belong to any Christian church....... I am looking a few over and I would like to think that I might be able to fit within a church but.... .I am not holding my breath because my all time record for getting disfellowshipped from Christian churches is two...... in just over one month back in 1991.

    I actually believe in trying my best to observe the weekly and annual Jewish Sabbaths.

    I am not an Orthodox Christian when it comes to the parentage of Rabbi Yeshua - Jesus. I believe in the "Unmarried Young Woman Virgin Birth Theory" as opposed to "The literal Virgin Virgin Birth Theory."

    I have a theory on stopping the eighteen century old leading excuse for anti- Semitic activity by Christians and Muslims by promoting an absolutely shocking and brilliantly written near death experience...... that in my opinion..... sets the stage for genuine Shalom / peace between Christians, Jews and Muslims:

    Your nomination for Nobel Prize in Literature?

    You would have to read pages 137 - 170 of this book to even begin to fully appreciate my enthusiasm.

    My opening gambit in my attempt to put Israeli technology in the centre of a plan to positively transform much of the world economy........ might help to make my application for Israeli residency somewhat more attractive to some Israeli officials as well.

    P. M. Netanyahu, President Trump has a 4.3 trillion dollar problem....
