To ejay, old geezer, Annie Robbins, and others,
Your comments seem to have become a personal attack rather based on fact.
When one praises something Israel invented , you accuse him of having converted to Judaism,
Now that's really logical.
As an engineer, specializing in water, I travelled to many countries, on various projects, including that of Israel. And I witnessed the construction of pipelines to the villages.... Including using underground aquifers, and developing plants and trees, that will be able to use this sometimes saline water. As for cost everyone pays a higher price to offset the cost, and avoid Wastage. As for Stealing Water...I suggest to learn something about the Water Sources... and then comment....
Comparing Israeli Inventors to Nazis is a new low... and shows an underlying hatred on your part...
A new book printed in USA in 2015 describes the facts much better than I can: "Let There Be Water- Israel's Solution For A Water -Starved World. I also such that you read Scientific Journals and UN reports....
About some of the Medical Inventions: I suggest you watch CNN (unless of course you claim
all CNN staff have been converted to Judaism)
Well I'll sign off .. It's impossible to communicate with those who are a
Anti Zionist , Anti Semitic Wave Length
Over and Out
eljay: All hail the Thousand Year “Jewish State”!, eh, Joe*? -
Be explicit, I have no idea what this means...
All hail the Thousand Year “Jewish State”!, eh, Joe*? -
Your Zio-supremacist co-collectivists--- that's your incorrect assumption.
As an old timer, ex educator, and engineer, I know how much I have to thanks the Israelis for
their invention: You should too
When we travel in airlines, much of the security systems used are Israeli invented,
Many of the chips used in cell phones first created by Israelis
High Tech equipment used in Hospitals were created in Israel. even the electronic- eye one swallows in like a pill which photos ones digestive system is an Israeli Invention.
Drip Irrigation, water desalination, and purification of water sewage, used in Many part of the USA, as well as 60 other countries is an Israeli Invention....
So because necessity is the mother of invention-- I credit what Israel has done...
In villages in the West Bank, and in Arab villages inside Israel where Arabs,and Bedouins used
to carry water from wells, Israel put in pipelines so that over 80% of the homes in these area
have running water...
You see I know how to appreciate what Israel is doing and has done , without even being so called Zionist.
I am a mild quiet living Canadian, who enjoys travelling around the BC Coast
River and Mountains, enjoying its scenery, especially Vancouver Island, and the Glacier Highway, in a very simple manner using Canadian Made Camping Gear . We Even spoilt ourselves by using a Class B Motor Home to travel up to the Yukon, we enjoyed the comfort of being able to keep warm at nights when the weather started turning cool.
So you see I have no axes to grind, no preaching to do.
I Thank G-d I was raised , educated, and worked mostly in BC and Alberta, Have worked hard to reach fairly comfortable life together with the same wife for almost 57 years. I am proud of My sons and daughter and grandchildren... and still proud of Being a Canadian
Articles by Gideon Levy , Have always been anti Israel, and Anti Zionist and Pro Palestinian.
I simply can't believe anything he says or writes. He is a total hypocrite > His only experience
in the the Israel Army was serving as a reporter on the Army news media and Army Radio.
If he he complains so much of occupation , then why does he OCCUPIES a comfortable home near Tel Aviv which is located on the land of a former Arab Village.. I have never heard about him trying to financially compensate any one of the former inhabitants.
Often his writing is fabrication and not based on facts....To me he is simply a dangerous WINDBAG.
As for Liberman he an Opportunist , with no idea of what Democracy is all about having been brought up in the USSR Regime....and will probable show his wishy washy fangs when the time
is opportune...Netanyahu is playing power politics just to remain Prime Minister... But
when when looks at other choices in Israel. it seems is the best to face the Arab Threat of Annihilation. However, there are already signs that the Dispose MInister of Defense will organize a new party... which will be joined by other formed top army leaders...In my humble
because of economic, and social, and security , the Israeli citizens, will not put up with their
elected members of their Knesset (Parliament) much longer...
Finally one must not overlook and ignore the terrible almost daily acts of terrorism...
which puts pressure on the Military and Police.. who apparently are doing an excellent job
In light of this Israel still lives, and develops worldwide programs in the field of Medicine, Water, and Agriculture, and runs a problem of Doctors without borders which treats persons , especially children,from all over the world, and even those who live in Countries which do not
recognize Israel. Israel Has a Rescue team of Doctors, Nurses, which has travelled all over the world to the various disaster area. "See the Program ONE CALL AWAY"...
AS for Philip Weiss , and North, Your " discrimination and prejudice get in the way of of writing facts and ruin what could otherwise be a good newspaper
A Very good reply , Nothing at all to do with the Boycott.
Your reply should also be based on Facts! not on Bias
Now to answer you reply.
I can't forget the U.S.S Liberty either. It was a terrible Tragedy...However
you simply forgot this happened in 1967, during the Six Day War. At that time
Israeli's Arab neighbors such as Egypt, Jordan, and Syrian, jointly threatened to destroy Israel. You know the result. You also know ( if you've ever been in a war) that wars are awful
and mistakes are made. Also That Israel has lost over 27000 soldiers, not to mention those wounded.... Israel Has made a peace treaty with Jordan and Egypt, and got out of Gaza.
If you see the changes in the Middle East...Arabs terrorists are killing Arabs, You just forot to mention Isis, in Syria; Hamas in Gaza, Hizballa in Lebanon, and Iran.
You have what the sociologists and psychologist call " A Projection Syndrome" You
blame others for what you yourself are doing. In your you Blame Israel for what the Arab Nations have done to Israel even before Israel was a state.
You also read very selectively and choose, only things that support your claim, or make up
things that were not mentioned in the articles.
Now "Dancing Mossad Agents" Wow that's really a figment of your imagination...
There were photos of Palestinians Cheering from their rooftops when Iraq's missiles
were falling on Israel.....and also during 9/11
As for the little Soccer playing boys on ...exactly when did this happen?
As for terrible Arson attack. It was condemned by the majority of Israelis, And Arrests have
already been made. There is not much reported because the Security Forces want to protect
the lives of their informers and secret service operators, and get more information from those arrested. Now for the most difficult part , the prosecutors, and the police have to
bring evidence to the judges to PROVE BEYOND DOUBT...that those arrested committed the crimes....
You shouldn't forget Nakba- but you forgot to mention this came as a result of the War
in which all the surrounding attacked Israel....
Now to finish those Arabs who stayed in Israel represented in all walks of life. Doctors, Nurses, Engineers, contractors , and lawyers. There are judges, also in the diplomatic corp
and top players in sports. They are many students in all the Universities.
Israel's Hospitals accepts Arabs from all nations including Gaza, and those who don't even
recognize them. In Tel Aviv there is a Hospital with a program call "No Borders". Many
Arab children., including those from Gaza, have come for heart treatment . Israel sends
a team of trained rescue workers, which include Doctors and Nurses who set up field hospitals. They are often the first to arrive on the scene. Most recently the Nepal Disaster.
Finally, Israel has set up field hospitals for those Syrian refugees who manage to get Israel's Northern borders....and from there they are transferred to other major hospitals.
I am a happily retired Canadian born engineer (82), living with my good wife for over 56 years
, have three children and 6 grandchildren. I have travelled around the world,experienced the horrors of wars, but I still know how to enjoy the BC Lakes and Forests and Canadian Rocky Mountains
I count my blessings and still volunteer and try to help the Needy
A small suggestion to you : hatred of a certain groups only back fires. It makes you bitter
Union Boycott -Investment Sanctions.
Those who Boycott don't seem to realize that first and foremost they are hurting
the Arab workers in the West Bank. Those persons who work for Jewish On Companies
receive a higher wage that those working for Arab companies. Why? Simply because
there wage laws which the Jewish companies have to adhere to.
I suggest all those who want to Boycott do so
1. Don't fly, because most airlines and aircraft use Israeli made security systems.
2. Don't go to a hospital. For much of the high tech medical equipment is Israel made
3. Don't use your smart phone's because it may be using chips invented and manufactured
4. Be careful when you take any vaccines or medicines because they may have been
invented and manufactured in Israel.
5. Don't Use irrigation, or water purification systems because many of the patents were
invented in Israel.
6. Don't use the Desalination systems patented by Israel
7. AS for Academic , and Scientific Progress boycott Israeli Professors from University
8. Boycott all the Israeli Nobel Prize Winners
The Nazis used this system and many of their top persons emigrated or were exterminated,
But somehow poetic justice has been taking place...They got rid of the Jews and in turn
are receiving thousands of Muslims, most of them law-abiding and hard working, but also among them are criminals , rapists and terrorists, who blow up subways, trains and busses, and attack schools....
I cant forget 9/11 can you?
