Israel does it again. Could you imagine ANY Arab country doing this for Israeli children?

The truth is most Arab countries do not allow Israelis to visit. 12 Arab countries have barred any Jew with an Israeli passport entry to their country. Trump has just done the same thing with certain Muslim countries and the world has gone mad yet not a peep about Israelis travel restrictions . Now that's racists


A 60 year old Palestinian from Bethlehem who suffered from severe essential tremor (ET) has been discharged from Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center after undergoing a highly unusual brain ablation, rather than major brain surgery. He is now able to return to work at his restaurant.

A few years ago, Rambam was the first hospital in Israel and one of the first in the world to perform the painless procedure; now the hospital has performed the procedure on a Palestinian for the first time. It involves using an MRI-guided ultrasound, developed by the Insightec company at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The technique was introduced in the US only last year, but dozens of the procedures have already been carried out at Rambam, which was a beta site for Insightec’s technolog

And Israeli humanitarian acts don't stop there: With devastation and genocide continuing in Syria, while the world looks on and appears impotent in bringing humanitarian aid to this war-torn country, we in Israel are endeavoring to find additional ways of taking the wounded into our hospitals.

This is not something new, as some 2,000 victims of the Syrian bloodbath – including many children – have been treated in Israeli hospitals since 2013.

And again: Back in the midst of the intifada of 2000, when Palestinian suicide bombers were blowing up Israelis, claiming the lives of over 1,000 civilians, Israeli hospitals continued to treat Palestinians.

The Truth is that 219,464 Palestinian patients received medical treatment in Israeli hospitals during 2015/16 – 21,270 of them children. These numbers include companions accompanying the patients to Israel.

The numbers show a dramatic increase in Palestinians receiving treatment from Israeli medical professionals. 197,713 Palestinians received medical treatment in Israel in 2011, and 144,838 in 2008.

So I ask you again. What Arab nation would do this for Israelis??? Don't bother trying to answer because you wont be able to.

This is the thanks they get.


The Trump administration will now back Israel on its claim of UN bias and pull out of the organization's Human Rights Council, Politico reported on Saturday.

According to the report, the administration is not expected to withdraw ahead of the council’s next session that begins on Monday, but discussion of the option has already begun and is expected to include input from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and President Donald Trump.

Since its creation in 2006, the UN Human Rights Council has been persistently criticized by the US for its biased treatment of Israel, which has been condemned more than any other country, including persistent human rights abusers such as Iran and Syria.

Under former US president George W. Bush, the US initially refused to seek a seat on the 47-member body and then withdrew from it altogether in 2008. Former US president Barack Obama reversed that position upon entering office, believing that the UNHRC could best be changed from within.

During the Obama administration the US held two consecutive terms on the council, from 2009 to 2015. It is now serving a three-year membership term that began in 2016. The US has often been the sole country to vote against resolutions condemning Israel.


Israel claim that the UN is Biased has to be one of the understatements of the century. But hold on a minute lets have a look at the countries that sit on the UN Human Rights council:

Albania 2017
Bangladesh 2017
Belgium 2018

QUESTION: How could the UN allow countries like Saudi Arabia, China , Iraq etc sit on the 'Human Rights Council' when they alone are the perpetrators of some of the worst acts of human rights since the Nazis, including beheading, hanging and being buried alive ?????

Its no fucking wonder Israel is picked on all the time. This is kind a farce of the highest degree!

Yet another sickening blow to the few who are still left whinging about BDS. 
A message from Maurice Boland: Stop wasting your time! 

BDS! Eat your heart out!
BIGGEST single investment in Israel. $3.75 BILLION in offshore energy project.
Double Anti-BDS whammy!
INDIA just signed a $2.5 BILLION missile defence contract with Israel.
That's OVER $7 BILLION in just two deals with Israel last week alone.

And it gets better:

Vice President Mike Pence assured the Republican Jewish Coalition that he and President Donald Trump will work 'tirelessly' on enacting business-friendly policies at home and supporting Israel abroad.
'If the world knows nothing else, the world will know this: America stands with Israel,' Pence told the group on Friday night.

Speaking before a Shabbat dinner, Pence pledged to keep Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and to combat the 'endless bias' of the United Nations.
'We're going to keep our end of the bargain', said Pence. 'If the world knows nothing else, the world will know this: America stands with Israel.'
Although Pence reaffirmed that the US would support Israel’s national security he declined to say whether any agreement would necessitate the creation of a Palestinian state.
'President Trump is personally invested in forging a lasting peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict', said Pence.

Wake up:

Benjamin Netanyahu has accepted an invitation [that will mark] the first official visit to Australia by a sitting Israeli prime minister.

The Muslim sub-Saharan state of Guinea opened up diplomatic relations with Israel for the first time…in a bilateral agreement signed in Paris.

Car manufacturing giant Ford has acquired Israeli computer vision and machine learning company SAIPS.

Coldplay one of the biggest groups in the world along with U2 laugh off BDS and will play Israel this summer.

. In recent days, news has come out that countries like France and the United Kingdom have taken legal steps to ban the boycotting of Israeli products in their countries. The city council of France passed two resolutions condemning attempts to boycott Israel. The UK also passed a new guidance that prevents councils, NHS trusts and other public councils from boycotting goods and products from Israel. Nations are starting to wake up to the fact that the BDS movement is divisive, discriminatory and risks fuelling anti-Semitism. We pray that other European nations will be able to see the true roots of the boycott campaign and begin the stand with Israel and move towards a future that is united, not divided. Please join us in prayer for European officials and law-makers in this regard.


One of the greatest debates on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Listen and learn

Sweden’s feminist foreign minister has dared to tell the truth about Saudi Arabia. What happens now concerns us all

Margot Wallström’s principled stand deserves wide support. Betrayal seems more likely

If the cries of ‘Je suis Charlie’ were sincere, the western world would be convulsed with worry and anger about the Wallström affair. It has all the ingredients for a clash-of-civilisations confrontation.

A few weeks ago Margot Wallström, the Swedish foreign minister, denounced the subjugation of women in Saudi Arabia. As the theocratic kingdom prevents women from travelling, conducting official business or marrying without the permission of male guardians, and as girls can be forced into child marriages where they are effectively raped by old men, she was telling no more than the truth. Wallström went on to condemn the Saudi courts for ordering that Raif Badawi receive ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes for setting up a website that championed secularism and free speech. These were ‘mediaeval methods’, she said, and a ‘cruel attempt to silence modern forms of expression’. And once again, who can argue with that?

The backlash followed the pattern set by Rushdie, the Danish cartoons and Hebdo. Saudi Arabia withdrew its ambassador and stopped issuing visas to Swedish businessmen. The United Arab Emirates joined it. The Organisation of Islamic Co-operation, which represents 56 Muslim-majority states, accused Sweden of failing to respect the world’s ‘rich and varied ethical standards’ — standards so rich and varied, apparently, they include the flogging of bloggers and encouragement of paedophiles. Meanwhile, the Gulf Co-operation Council condemned her ‘unaccept-able interference in the internal affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’, and I wouldn’t bet against anti-Swedish riots following soon.

Yet there is no ‘Wallström affair’. Outside Sweden, the western media has barely covered the story, and Sweden’s EU allies have shown no inclination whatsoever to support her. A small Scandinavian nation faces sanctions, accusations of Islamophobia and maybe worse to come, and everyone stays silent. As so often, the scandal is that there isn’t a scandal.

It is a sign of how upside-down modern politics has become that one assumes that a politician who defends freedom of speech and women’s rights in the Arab world must be some kind of muscular liberal, or neocon, or perhaps a supporter of one of Scandinavia’s new populist right-wing parties whose commitment to human rights is merely a cover for anti-Muslim hatred. But Margot Wallström is that modern rarity: a left-wing politician who goes where her principles take her.

She is foreign minister in Sweden’s weak coalition of Social Democrats and Greens, and took office promising a feminist foreign policy. She recognised Palestine in October last year — and, no, the Arab League and Organisation of Islamic Co-operation and Gulf Co-operation Council did not condemn her ‘unacceptable interference in the internal affairs of Israel’. I confess that her gesture struck me as counterproductive at the time. But after Benjamin Netanyahu ruled out a Palestinian state as he used every dirty trick he could think of to secure his re-election, she can claim with justice that history has vindicated her.

She moved on to the Saudi version of sharia law. Her criticism was not just rhetorical. She said that it was unethical for Sweden to continue with its military co-operation agreement with Saudi Arabia. In other words, she threatened Swedish arms companies’ ability to make money. Saudi Arabia’s denial of business visas to Swedes threatened to hurt other companies’ profits too. You might think of Swedes as upright social democrats, who have never let worries of appearing tedious stand in the way of their righteousness. But that has never been wholly true, and is certainly not true when there is money at stake.

Sweden is the world’s 12th largest arms exporter — quite an achievement for a country of just nine million people. Its exports to Saudi Arabia total $1.3 billion. Business leaders and civil servants are also aware that other Muslim-majority countries may follow Saudi Arabia’s lead. During the ‘cartoon crisis’ — a phrase I still can’t write without snorting with incredulity — Danish companies faced global attacks and the French supermarket chain Carrefour took Danish goods off the shelves to appease Muslim customers. A co-ordinated campaign by Muslim nations against Sweden is not a fanciful notion. There is talk that Sweden may lose its chance to gain a seat on the UN Security Council in 2017 because of Wallström.

To put it as mildly as I can, the Swedish establishment has gone wild. Thirty chief executives signed a letter saying that breaking the arms trade agreement ‘would jeopardise Sweden’s reputation as a trade and co-operation partner’. No less a figure than His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf himself hauled Wallström in at the weekend to tell her that he wanted a compromise. Saudi Arabia has successfully turned criticism of its brutal version of Islam into an attack on all Muslims, regardless of whether they are Wahhabis or not, and Wallström and her colleagues are clearly unnerved by accusations of Islamophobia. The signs are that she will fold under the pressure, particularly when the rest of liberal Europe shows no interest in supporting her.

Sins of omission are as telling as sins of commission. The Wallström non-affair tells us three things. It is easier to instruct small countries such as Sweden and Israel on what they can and cannot do than America, China or a Saudi Arabia that can call on global Muslim support when criticised. Second, a Europe that is getting older and poorer is starting to find that moral stands in foreign policy are luxuries it can no longer afford. Saudi Arabia has been confident throughout that Sweden needs its money more than it needs Swedish imports.

Finally, and most revealingly in my opinion, the non-affair shows us that the rights of women always come last. To be sure, there are Twitter storms about sexist men and media feeding frenzies whenever a public figure uses ‘inappropriate language’. But when a politician tries to campaign for the rights of women suffering under a brutally misogynistic clerical culture she isn’t cheered on but met with an embarrassed and hugely revealing silence.

Anyone fancy a march around the houses of parlament to protest on behalf of the treatment of women in Saudí Arabia. No, I thought not to busy protesting about Trump meeting the queen. You lot make me sick you pack of weirdos!

More wonderful news for Israel. Dario Sur. Turismo Costa del Sol teams up with Sund'or to attract visitors from Israel. Direct flights from Malaga to Tel Aviv will be operated by Sund'or, a partner of El Al, and will start running in May....
As Israel tourism continues to grow at a phenomenal rate welcoming Jews, Christians and Muslims. Now Turismo Costa del Sol is striving to reach out to destinations to which there are no direct flights. One such destination is Israel.

From May, the airline company Sund'or, subsidiary of Israel's national airline El Al, will start to run a service between Malaga and Tel Aviv after Turismo Costa del Sol, represented by Elías Bendodo, reached an agreement which will see the start of a mutual marketing campaign to promote tourism between Spain and Israel.

Initially, flights will run from May until October, twice a week, with 12,000 seats up for grabs from Israel's second biggest city. However, the intention is that flight numbers will increase to three times a week and will be on offer all year round, according to the company's directors.

The deal was announced at the International Mediterranean Tourism Market in Tel Aviv which concluded on Wednesday.

AN AMAZING TRUE LIFE STORY. A MUST READ. From Egyptian Muslim to Defender of Israel
Hussein Aboubakr Mansour’s harrowing journey from oppression to freedom

Hussein Aboubakr Mansour, 27, was born to a Muslim banking family in Cairo, Egypt, and today is a self-proclaimed Zionist. He endured brutal torture in his homeland before coming to the United States on political asylum in 2012 and leaving behind everything he knew.
It all started when he was a young teenager, seeking more information about the supervillain he had grown up learning to hate: Jews.
“We all get handed the narrative of who we are. The narrative I received was that I was a member of the best country. Anything not the direct product of our culture was inferior,” Mansour explained to a rapt audience on a recent night at Congregation Beth Jacob in Atlanta at a lecture sponsored by StandWithUs. “The main enemies were the infidel West who want to take our resources.”
On 9/11, for example, his middle-class family rejoiced at news of the attacks on the World Trade Center and called their friends to turn on the TV. In their view, the infidels were being punished.
The main antagonist in this narrative was Israel. In order to understand the enemy and “decode Jews’ evil plans to ruin our country and our civilization,” Mansour, a nerdy kid with glasses, decided to learn Hebrew on the Internet. To do that, he had to first teach himself English. A funny thing happened along the way. The more he learned, the more he began questioning the narrative.
Firsthand accounts he read told a different story about Jews and their history. For example, he was shocked to find out Jews were indigenous to the Middle East. The story unfolding about a hated, persecuted minority that people were eager to murder at every occasion contrasted with the narrative of the demon super-Jew.
“The biggest shock was when I started to examine Israel as a culture from up close,” he relates. “In Israel there’s an accepted standard of human decency. To my surprise, I found Jews have a much higher standard of tolerance and don’t focus on killing Arabs the way Arabs focus on killing Jews. This huge moral gap opened my eyes.
Driven by curiosity, Mansour found a resource in his own backyard: the Israeli Academic Center in Cairo – a product of the 1978 Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt. There, Mansour had a chance to speak Hebrew with someone. He started with the first Jew he ever met: the security guard at the center.
Like a child in a candy store, the 19-year-old Egyptian devoured comic books and novels in Hebrew, all the while breaking a cultural taboo by visiting a place inhabited by Jews and Israelis.
As Mansour left the center, someone called his name. It was a state security officer. “Your professor should have told you all Egyptians are banned from this place,” the policeman said threateningly.
The following week, the Israeli diplomatic mission called to invite Mansour to watch a movie in Hebrew. Minutes later, another call came in to Mansour’s phone from a blocked number. It was a state security officer. “Why are Israelis calling your phone? You’re from a family of bankers. You should study banking.”
Although he wasn’t doing anything illegal, Mansour says, his phone was tapped. Still, he continued to study Hebrew and kindle his knack for languages.
An Israeli newspaper interviewed him and state security again threatened him. His family did an intervention, and he promised to stop his studies of Hebrew, Israel and Judaism. But as a member of the Muslim majority in Egypt, he had had an awakening about the other side. He also started to notice how Christians in his country were persecuted, and their churches burned. He started a blog about anti-Semitism and treatment of Christians and Muslim women.
Eventually the family disowned him as an apostate. He fell out with religion because it seemed to him a tool for control.
Every time I wrote something state security didn’t like, they came to arrest me. I promised to stop,” he says. “They put me in a military prison for two months and and tortured me, stripping me naked, hitting me with belts and calling me a Jew lover. There was no trial, judge or lawyer. It was the worst time of my life.”
On Dec. 26, 2010, they released him from prison. A month later, the revolution began that led to the ousting of Egypt’s president. Mansour felt hopeful. But then the Muslim Brotherhood came to power, attacks on minorities worsened, and he started getting arrested again for writing about his hopes for peace with Israelis.
“If I were in Israel I wouldn’t have been put in prison for sending an e-mail to the wrong person,” he told the audience. “It’s the only decent country in the Middle East that offers humans a life of respect and decency. It’s that moral gap that makes me support Israel.
