http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3976/belgium-jew-hatred Belgian children aged 6 to 12 are being instilled with a hatred for Jews that is so deep, that one day “Never Again” might indeed become “Over Again,” and with the same victims as before: the Jews. Shockingly, in Belgium, history lessons about Nazism and the Holocaust are currently being used to infuse children […]

Partisans of Israel from left and right keep evoking the so called America/Israel special relationship. The left worries that a muscular Israeli response to a mortal threat will threaten the relationship, and the right frets that it has seriously frayed under the Obama administration.
They are both wrong. The so called special relationship is a chimera.
Let’s revisit some history.
In closing critical international shipping lanes, the nationalization of the Suez Canal by Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser in July, 1956, was a serious provocation to Great Britain, France and Israel. Furthermore after continual terrorism and threats Israel had credible intelligence that the Arabs were preparing for war. On Oct. 29, 1956, Israeli forces, directed by Moshe Dayan, launched a combined air and ground assault into Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. Early Israeli successes were reinforced by an Anglo-French invasion along the canal. The November 6 cease fire, demanded by the United Nations and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles led to a total withdrawal by Israel, England and France in exchange for reassurances that the U.N. would monitor the Sinai and keep open the Straits of Tiran crucial for Israel’s shipping. That was special only in the thinly disguised animosity of John Foster Dulles.
Border incidents and terrorism continued against Israel for the next decade. Egypt’s President Nasser escalated his blood curdling threats to destroy Israel and in 1967 he requested the withdrawal of United Nations forces from the Sinai and closed the Gulf of Aqaba and Straits of Tiran.
When Israel complained of these flagrant violations of the 1956 agreement, Secretary of State Dean Rusk and President Lyndon Johnson declared that they could not find the agreement and therefore could not issue any warning to Egypt. Israel launched a pre-emptive lightning strike which crippled the forces of Syria, Egypt and Jordan arrayed against it. By the time Israel heard Dean Rusk’s demands for a cease fire it was all over, and the era of so called “occupation,” which has been flogged by every successive administration, began.
In October of 1973 it was clear to Israel and confirmed by international intelligence that Arab States were preparing a major strike on Israel. President Nixon, already beset by escalating scandal permitted his Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to pressure Israel to avoid a preemptive strike. Israel bowed to the hard fisted demands and on Yom Kippur, the combined forces of Egypt and Syria with logistical support from all the Arab states attacked. Israel’s desperate pleas for re-supply of dwindling ordnance were ignored by the State and Defense Departments. Finally, Nixon ordered an immediate air-lift. While dispute continues as to whether it was Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger or Kissinger who held up the resupply, what is clear is that when Israel regrouped and began a counteroffensive, Kissinger demanded an immediate cease fire. Negotiations over Israel’s retreat from the Sinai continued into the administration of Gerald Ford in which Kissinger remained as Secretary of State. Largely as a result of Kissinger’s crude threats of a “reassessment of America’s relations with Israel” Israel withdrew back across the Suez Canal and several miles inland from the east bank. All territorial gains in Syria made during the war were given up.

ISRAEL’S MEDICAL ACHIEVEMENTS
A protein to kill cancer stem cells. (Thanks to NoCamels.com) Dr. Sarit Larisch of the University of Haifa has discovered a protein called ARTS that triggers cell death. It is found to be lacking in cancerous tissue. The research can lead to a pre-cancer marker and development of similar molecules that can stop tumors forming.
Further success in leukemia treatment trials. Israeli biotech Gamida has successfully transplanted just its manipulated NiCord stem cells into patients with blood cancer. The impact is to reduce recovery times even further from the two years achieved from using NiCord combined with non-manipulated stem cells.
USA promotes Israeli leukemia treatment. The United States FDA has granted orphan drug status to Israeli biotech BioLineRX’s BL-8040 treatment of acute myeloid leukemia. Because there are limited alternatives, BioLineRX will now receive US Federal support, financial assistance and market exclusivity.
Trial of anti-lymphoma technology. Israeli biotech KAHR Medical plans to trial KAHR-102, one of its groundbreaking Signal Converting Proteins (SCP), for the treatment of lymphatic cancer.
New molecule reduces cholesterol – and more. Researchers at Israel’s Technion have developed an antioxidant 1-FE that lowers cholesterol. It also eliminates oxygen free radicals that cause organs and tissues to age. The compound could be an important alternative to statins in the fight against heart disease.
Get your knee fixed. Active Implants, whose R&D center is in Netanya Israel, is looking for patients in Israel and Europe willing to join the trial of its NUsurface Meniscus Implant. The novel, composite polymer implant is for osteoarthritis patients who have pain and disability but are too old or young for a total knee replacement.
Israel’s hi-tech emergency service. Magen David Adom used its technology and skills to save a 3-month-old baby. First, MDA’s sophisticated C4I dispatch system allocated the closest first-responder to the call. Then the dispatch operator advised the responder on CPR for the baby. All telephone operators are medics or paramedics.
Bone regeneration with a “magic” membrane. (Thanks to Israel21c) I reported on Regenecure in June when it was promoting its safe dental bone augmentation procedure. But it appears that the company’s BoneCure membrane has been healing animals for some time and is working on a similar product for humans.

It isn’t even capable of comprehending its own awfulness. It marches on with no trace of decency, only the arrogant self-assurance of those who insist that they know better because of some imaginary humanitarian moral superiority. This is the left in all […]
http://www.nationalreview.com/article/358506/thank-god-there-are-almost-no-jews-syria-now-lela-gilbert A Times of Israel story on August 17, 2012 — just over a year ago — was headlined with words of relief: “‘Thank God, there are almost no Jews in Syria now’ says the woman who rescued most of them.” The article, by Rafael Ahren, had as its backdrop the horrific civil war in […]
http://www.nationalreview.com/article/358508/what-conservative-foreign-policy-looks-andrew-c-mccarthy In the Syrian rubble of Barack Obama’s foreign policy lies a moment of opportunity for conservatives. It is a moment for building a muscular foreign policy based on a recognition of good and evil; on an unapologetic conviction that the United States stands firmly on the right side of that ledger because it stands […]
http://www.nationalreview.com/article/358480/american-ineffectualism-mark-steyn Every American ally is cringing with embarrassment at the amateurishness of the last month. For generations, eminent New York Times wordsmiths have swooned over foreign strongmen, from Walter Duranty’s Pulitzer-winning paeans to the Stalinist utopia to Thomas L. Friedman’s more recent effusions to the “enlightened” Chinese Politburo. So it was inevitable that the cash-strapped […]
