    Israel, an amazing country with amazing people....

    The latest soon...

    1. Scientists in Israel found that the brackish water, drilled from underground desert aquifers hundreds of feet deep, could be used to raise warm-water fish. The geothermal water, less than one-tenth as saline as sea water, free of pollutants, and a toasty 98 degrees on average, proves an ideal environment..

    2. Israeli-developed designer-eyeglasses, promise mobile phone and iPod users, a personalized, high-tech video display. Available to US consumers next year, Lumus-Optical's lightweight and fashionable video eyeglasses, feature a large transparent screen, floating in front of the viewer's face that projects their choice of movie, TV show, or video game.

    3. When Stephen Hawkins recently visited Israel , he shared his wisdom with scientists, students, and even the Prime Minister. But the world's most renowned victim of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease, also learned something, due to the Israeli Association for ALS' advanced work in both embryonic and adult stem cell research, as well as its proven track record with neurodegenerative diseases. The Israeli research community is well on its way to finding a treatment for this fatal disease, which affects 30,000 Americans.

    4. Israeli start -up, Veterix, has developed an innovative new electronic capsule that sits in the stomach of a cow, sheep, or goat, sending out real-time information on the health of the herd, to the farmer via email or cell phone. The e-capsule, which also sends out alerts if animals are distressed, injured, or lost is
    now being tested on a herd of cows, in the hopes that the device will lead to tastier and healthier meat and milk supplies.

    5. The millions of Skype users worldwide will soon have access to the newly developed KishKish lie-detector. This free internet service, based on voice stress analysis (a technique, commonly used in criminal investigations) will be able to measure just how truthful that person on the other end of the line, really is.

    6. Beating cardiac tissue has been created in a lab from human embryonic stem cells by researchers at the Rappaport Medical Faculty and the Technion - Israeli institute of Technology 's biomedical Engineering facility. The work of Dr. Shulamit Levenberg and Prof. Lior Gepstein, has also led to the creation of tiny blood vessels within the tissue, making possible its implantation in a human heart.

    7. Israel 's Magal Security
    Systems, is a worldwide leader in computerized security systems, with products used in more than 70 countries around the world, protecting anything from national borders, to nuclear facilities, refineries, and airports. The company's latest Product, DreamBox, a state-of-the-art security system that includes Intelligent video, audio and sensor management, is now being used by a major water authority on the US east coast to safeguard the utility's sites.

    8. It is common knowledge that dogs have better night vision than humans and a vastly superior sense of smell and hearing. Israel 's Bio-Sense Technologies recently delved further and electronically analyzed 350 different barks. Finding that dogs of all breeds and sizes, bark the same alarm when they sense a threat, the firm has designed the dog bark-reader, a sensor that can pick up a dog's alarm bark, and alert the human operators. This is just one of a batch of
    innovative security systems to emerge from Israel which Forbes calls 'the go-to country for anti-terrorism technologies.'

    9. Israeli company, BioControl Medical, sold its first electrical stimulator to treat urinary incontinence to a US company for $50 Million. Now, it is working on CardioFit, which uses electrical nerve stimulation to treat congestive heart failure. With nearly five million Americans presently affected by heart failure, and more than 400,000 new cases diagnosed yearly, the CardioFit is already generating a great deal of excitement as the first device with the potential to halt this deadly disease.

    10. One year after Norway's Socialist Left Party launched its Boycott Israel campaign, the importing of Israeli goods has increased by 15%, the strongest increase in many years, statistics Norway reports.

    Incontrast to the efforts of tiny Israel to make contributions to the world so as to better mankind, one has to ask what have those who strive to eliminate Israel from the face of the earth done other than to create hate and bloodshed?

    It helps when you have millions of American taxpayers footing the bill for everything.

    Kazakh boy will walk again after surgery in Israel

    Cerebral palsy patient gets free treatment at expense of Assaf Harofeh Medical Center and Foreign Ministry.

    A gifted 12-year-old boy from Kazakhstan whose cerebral palsy (CP) prevented him from walking independently has had a successful operation and is undergoing extensive rehabilitation at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center in Tzrifin – at the hospital’s and the Foreign Ministry’s expense.

    Pavel (Pasha) Sadyshev and his mother have been staying free at the state hospital’s minihotel since early January so he could undergo the surgery and the physical therapy for his severe orthopedic problem.

    As the parents of the only child are unemployed, they could not afford the surgery, rehabilitation, accommodations and travel expenses. Since Pavel’s case was unusual, the government and hospital director-general Dr. Benny Davidson agreed to foot the medical bills.


    The Israeli embassy, in cooperation with Eximbank Kazakhstan and Turkish Airlines, arranged a flight for Pavel and his mother.

    Bar Haim added that her hospital is recognized worldwide for its expertise in the field, which began with its treatment of child victims of the polio epidemic in the 1950s.

    Why should the hated Semites "stay away from Israel" or not? If Israel is "amazing", then it needs to make a better effort to discourage its followers from hating Semites.

    On the other hand, Pals have designed bomb vests ranging from XL to kiddie size. So they have that on the scoreboard.

    A government that for 64 years has beeing keeping a tiny country occupying 0.2% of the region, surrounded by hostile hordes outnumbering them 75 to 1 and committed to wiping them off the map safe, democratic and prosperous...Yep, you are right of course, it's totally insane what this government has managed to pull off.

    The only hostility being displayed is by Israel. But keep feeding yourself the propaganda-you're not fooling anyone else.

    Indeed; it is quite laughable that some members here think that the above list somehow justifies (or makes up for) the crimes Israel has committed against the Palestinians.

    Actually normal intelligent people (by definition they are not necessarily a majority) think that despite 64 years of crimes, terror, wars, rocket attacks, kidnappings, hijackings committed by Arabs against Israel it has survived and become An Amazing Country With Amazing People

    Normal intelligent people understand that oppression will be met with resistance. Indeed, Ben-Gurion clearly understood this:
