Israeli innovation was on the front burner during German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s recent visit, which highlighted joint initiatives in water, green energy and agritech. Israel and Germany also agreed to collaborate in artificial intelligence, cyber defense, water, nanotechnology, electrochemistry, and oceanographic and cancer research. Merkel’s visit is just one example of how Israel reaches out to help and heal the world.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently accused leftist Jewish billionaire George Soros of funding anti-government campaigns challenging Israel’s deportation of tens of thousands of illegal African infiltrators.
Soros denied it. But he also denied grants to anti-Israel groups such as J Street and Adala—until DCLeaks posted several of his Open Society Foundations (OSF) documents online. The leaks revealed Soros’ plan to keep “a low public profile” on his Middle East investments to avoid investigation by “pro-Israel entities.”
The steady criminal, immoral and unethical acts and behaviors by governments and people groups is escalating around the world. In the last hundred years, we have seen not one but two world wars. The Second World War was ended paradoxically using atomic bombs to finally put to an end to the relentless attacks of a government hell-bent on death and destruction. It was hoped that the world would never again experience such violence and so the League of Nations, which later became the United Nations, was formed to help keep peace in the world but the goal is allusive as “nation rises against nation.”
To make a point I would like to go back to the time, months ago, when we all listened to media reports about IDF soldier, Gilad Shalit’s, release from captivity. We heard of his “capture” by armed Palestinian gunmen who, in more accurate terms, were Palestinian terrorists. Furthermore, the term “captured” was a complete and intentional misnomer used by the anti-Israel media. Gilad Shalit was kidnapped in 2006, not “captured,” and his two IDF comrades were murdered, not “killed in the conflict.”
