After Pesach and Hanukkah,
Purim is the third major Zionist holiday. It is not just about the readings of
the Book of Esther. It teaches us that when united and determined Jews can
defeat any enemies, even living as a minority in hostile exile. Our spiritual
and political leaders need to learn this lesson in order to make progress in
uniting Jewish people and land!

murderous and unrepentant haters of Jewish nation!
Food for Thought. by
There are many mitzvahs, commandments, in Judaism. Two
of them direct us to live a happy and purposeful life. Unfortunately, most
branches of Judaism mainly promote tzdoka, donation.
There are other important mitzvahs -
Jewish unity and re-unification of the Jewish land, as Jews of all political
affiliations used to sing “Eretz-Israel on both side
water solutions for the global market. The projects include 500 water
schemes in Rumania, preventing water leakage in Moscow, irrigating sugar cane
plantations in South Africa, recycling wastewater at the Beijing Olympics, fish
farm hydroponics in Turkey and desalination in Cyprus. So the great news is
that Israel will have surplus water within a decade. Even by the end of
next year, 75% of Israeli households will be using desalinated water.

researchers from Hadassah Medical Center have discovered a gene that increases the lifespan of mice, and may do

Academics believe access to long-forgotten UN World War II archive
could shine new light on the Holocaust and bring modern-day war criminals to
account. Locked inside UN headquarters is a huge but largely unknown archive
documenting 10,000 cases against accused World War II criminals. "It's
outrageous that material which could help bring today's war criminals to
justice and improve our understanding of the Holocaust is still secret,"
said British academic Dr. Dan Plesch (The UN, called the League of Nations at the time, like the Red
Cross, was the main Genocide Facilitator of the Holocaust. ‘Ugly Nothing’ did

A leading European
analyst has determined that Israel could destroy Iran's nuclear weapons
infrastructure. A former senior German defence official has asserted that the
Israel Air Force was capable of destroying key Iran's nuclear facilities within
hours. Hans Ruhle, planning director of the German Defence Ministry from 1982
to 1988, said Israel could torpedo Iranian nuclear weapons development for years
by bombing only six of up to 30 Iranian sites. (The
problem is not with Teheran, but Washington. US governments have been
restricting Israel’s right to defeat her enemies, using political and economic
blackmail, since the inception of the Jewish state!)

Arab Supreme Court Judge Refused to
Arab judge of Israel’s Supreme Court caused an outrage when he refused to sing
Israel’s national anthem. “There are citizens who demand rights and government
positions, but who scorn their national obligations with insolence and
arrogance... Whoever does not like the national anthem should find a country
with a suitable anthem and go there” said MK Michael Ben-Ari (National

Now's Director of Policy and Government Relations, Lara Friedman, has expressed
her discontent and dissatisfaction with the failure of Arab officials to
acknowledge Jewish rights to Jerusalem. “This is a serious problem,” Friedman proclaimed.
“If President Abbas cannot acknowledge Jewish claims in Jerusalem, he should
not be surprised if it is more difficult for Israelis and Jews, wherever they
are, to believe that he can be trusted in a peace agreement that leaves
Jerusalem sites precious to Jews under Palestinian control. (More and more delusional Jews are coming to the realisation
that Arabs do not want peace with Israel, but destruction of the Jewish state!)

Quote of the Week:
“Look, you apologize when
you’ve done something wrong and you want to make amends. You don’t apologize
when someone makes you admit to a mistake that you haven’t made, and in fact, in
this case incites the people to do some of these things, because they think the
apology is an admission of wrongdoing.” - John Bolton, former

Isaac Herzog, member of Foreign Affairs and
Defence Committee, said that the Syrian opposition want to "be
friends" with Israel. He refused to name his sources because he said they
fear retribution by Assad. He said they are aligned with the main rebel
factions. (Why are so many Jews always eager and ready to be fooled
and used by Israel’s enemies?)
The opposition Syrian National Council is willing to work
with Hezbollah, the council's leader said, provided the extremist group does
not interfere with democratic change in Syria. (They
say “democracy”, but scream "Allāhu
Akbar"! There is not united Syrian opposition, just some gangs
of Islamic thugs. Do we really need to replace another Arab egomaniac dictator
by a lawless Islamic mob?)
