Islamic Republic of Pakistan: Court validates forced conversion, marriage of 14-year-old Christian girl to Muslim
Sunday, February 16, 2020
Jihad Watch : The Qur’an says “There is no compulsion in religion” (2:256).
However, what constitutes “compulsion” is in the eye of the beholder.
The institutionalized subjugation of the dhimma, with its regular
humiliation and harassment, from which one can be freed for the simple
price of converting to Islam, is not considered compulsion.
After all, the journos could have chosen to
be killed instead. “Court in Pakistan Validates Forced Conversion, Marriage of Christian Girl to Muslim,” Morning Star News, February 12, 2020 (thanks to the Geller Report):
Nigeria: Bishop says Islamic jihadis are bent on “killing Christians” and “destroying Christianity”
Bishop Matthew Kukah
Jihad Watch : “Are we to deny the evidence before us, of kidnappers separating
Muslims from infidels or compelling Christians to convert or die?” Why, yes. Yes, we are. To do otherwise would be “Islamophobic.” “Islamist terror groups are set on ‘destroying Christianity’, says Nigerian bishop,” Christian Today, February 13, 2020:
Islamist terrorist groups causing havoc in northern Nigeria are set
on “killing Christians” and “destroying Christianity”, a bishop has
warned. Bishop Matthew Kukah, of Sokoto, said that Christians in the north of
the country are “marked men and women”, according Aid to the Church in
Need. He gave the ominous warning while delivering the homily at the
funeral of 18-year-old Catholic seminarian, Michael Nnadi, who was
murdered after being abducted from the Good Shepherd Seminary in Kaduna
“For us Christians, this death is a metaphor for the fate of all
Christians in Nigeria, but especially northern Nigeria,” he said. “For us Christians, it would seem safe to say that we are all marked men and women today.” Nnadi was one of four seminarians abducted from Good Shepherd on January 8. The other three were later released. Bishop Kukah went on to say that the north of the country “has become
one large graveyard, a valley of dry bones, the nastiest and most
brutish part of our dear country”.
The last few months have seen a number of brutal attacks against Christians in Nigeria. Last month, 13 Christians were killed by armed Fulani herdsmen in Plateau State on the same day as Nnadi and the other seminarians were abducted. On December 26, 11 Christian aid workers were killed in Borno State by the Islamic State in West Africa Province. The bishop was critical of suggestions that the attacks do not have a religious element. “Are we to believe that simply because Boko Haram kills Muslims too, they wear no religious garb?” he said.
“Are we to deny the evidence before us, of kidnappers separating
Muslims from infidels or compelling Christians to convert or die?”
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Khan announces that Turkey and Pakistan will work together against “Islamophobia”
Erdogan and Imran Khan
Jihad Watch : The concept of “Islamophobia”was invented by Islamic groups in order
to claim victim status for Muslims and deflect attention away from the
global jihad and Islamic supremacism. If self-proclaimed moderate
Muslims really want to cure “Islamophobia,”here is an easy way. They
1. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.
2. Renounce definitively, sincerely, honestly, and in deeds, not just in
comforting words, not just “terrorism,” but any intention to replace
the U.S. Constitution (or the constitutions of any non-Muslim state)
with Sharia even by peaceful means. In line with this, clarify what is
meant by their condemnations of the killing of innocent people by
stating unequivocally that American and Israeli civilians are innocent
people, teaching accordingly in mosques and Islamic schools, and
behaving in accord with these new teachings.
3. Teach, again sincerely and honestly, in transparent and inspectable
ways in mosques and Islamic schools, the imperative of Muslims
coexisting peacefully as equals with non-Muslims on an indefinite basis,
and act accordingly.
4. Begin comprehensive international programs in mosques all over the
world to teach sincerely against the ideas of violent jihad and Islamic
5. Actively and honestly work with Western law enforcement officials to
identify and apprehend jihadists within Western Muslim communities.
If Muslims do those five things, voila! “Islamophobia”will disappear! “Pakistan, Turkey will work together againstIslamophobia: PM Imran Khan,” NNI, February 14, 2020:

Gun-free NOT so great britain : Almost 10,000 gun crimes in a year, with help from Muslim migrants
Gun Smugglers in NOT so great britain
Jihad Watch : Almost 10,000 gun crimes were committed in a year in the UK, despite the country being known as “gun free”
due to its “strictest gun control laws in the world.” Britain has seen
gun crimes rise by “27 per cent in five years and the number of firearms
seized has quadrupled.” Gun smuggling combined with the fallout from a suicidal immigration policy are to blame. Thanks to Prime Ministers David Cameron (a total failure on immigration) and Theresa May, another failure, from her days as Home Secretary, during which Middle Eastern and African gangs and jihadists proliferated across Britain, as well as Islamic hate preachers.
A middle-eastern gun runner told the news outlet
that it is “easy” to bring guns to Britain and that he can sell the
weapons for over £2,000, four times as much as he purchases them for in
Europe. The smuggler said that he travels to France and picks up the
guns from migrant camps in Calais before shipping them back to the UK.
The “Calais jungle,” as it is known, has turned into a war zone.
Even years ago, “armed migrants” were “setting up 30 road blocks each
night to attack British-bound vehicles travelling through Calais.” Truck drivers
on duty were scared for their lives, with some even “resorting to a
variety of tactics to get through without rocks smashing through their
window; some even placed bits of pork on their trucks’ rear bumpers to
deter the Muslim refugees from climbing in or moving closer to attack.”
The “biggest ever gun haul”
was discovered in a car from Calais last August: 60 guns, described as
“lethal purpose weapons,” were hidden in panels. The weapons were “to
arm organised crime gangs.” Smugglers in Calais have been also buying
illegal guns to protect what they see as “their turf,” according to an Italian counter-terrorism investigation. With a new Prime Minister in the UK and Brexit, let’s hope for a
housecleaning in Britain, including deportations of criminal migrants.
Putting migrant offenders in jail poses another problem: prison
The “Queen is the enemy of Islam and must die,” preach the jihadist followers
of the hate preacher Anjem Choudary in prisons. They are also holding
makeshift Sharia trials in UK jails, circulating banned books and
recruiting young inmates for jihad. Anjem Choudary is generally
considered to be the nation’s “most dangerous” jihad preacher, yet he was released from jail to do more harm. “Gun Free Britain: Nearly 10,000 ‘Gun Crimes’ Committed in One Year,” by Kurt Zindulka, Breitbart, February 14, 2020:
Australia: Muslim beheads brother of wife’s lover, says “the system has betrayed me just because I am a foreigner”
Jihad Watch : Always the victim. In all circumstances. No matter what. It’s a fine
art, really. It must take a great deal of practice to invert reality so
habitually and indefatigably. But we see it with Islamic supremacists
again and again and again. “Meatworker Mohammed Khan jailed for life over beheading murder of friend during fishing trip,” by Jemima Burt, ABC.net.au, February 12, 2020:
A central Queensland meatworker has been sentenced to
life in jail for killing his friend by chopping his head off in a rage
over his wife’s affair with the deceased’s brother. Mohammed Khan was this morning found guilty in the Supreme Court trial in Rockhampton of the murder of 33-year-old Syeid Alam. The trial heard Khan had arranged to go fishing with his friend and co-worker, Mr Alam, the night he disappeared in 2016.
Mr Alam’s headless body was found on the banks of Rockhampton’s Fitzroy River in April 2016, 11 days after he went missing. The victim’s head was found nearby, wrapped in jeans. A small axe was also found in the area a day later. Khan had pleaded not guilty to Mr Alam’s murder and has been in custody since May 2016. Although the sexual affair between Mr Alam’s brother, Sha Alam Sha
Alam, and Mr Khan’s wife, Suparti Suparti, ended seven weeks earlier, Mr
Khan became violent when the issue of naked photos of Ms Suparti was
brought up, the court was told.
Crown prosecutor Joshua Phillips previously told the court highly
probable mobile-tower-location data and traffic-camera footage placed
Khan at the “kill zone” on the night of the murder. “Who else has been shown to have plans that night with Syeid? he said. “Who else has been shown to have left their home at the right time to be the killer? “Who else has been shown to have a strong motive, a strong motive for
dispatching the older brother of the man who slept with his wife … the
mother of his young kids.” ‘System has betrayed me’
Khan cried and interrupted the judge as he was sentenced to life in jail. “You have betrayed us because I am an outsider,” Khan told the hearing. “I know it is shocking but the system has betrayed me just because I
am a foreigner — there was no evidence, there was nothing to prove that I
was guilty — I don’t know how you proved that.”
Khan’s defence told the court he had a difficult past, taken into
forced labour by the Myanmar army 20 years ago before fleeing to
Bangladesh and Malaysia, before arriving to Australia on a boat that
took seven days to arrive.
Israeli forces clash with militants inside Al-Aqsa mosque
Vlad Tepes : Israeli security forces stormed East #Jerusalem's #alAqsa Mosque on Friday, during the early dawn prayer, and clashed with worshippers there.
Footage shows Israeli police pushing worshippers who were reportedly praying in the streets near the mosque.
The Israeli police reportedly prevented Palestinian activist Nizam Abu al-Ramuz, who was expelled from al-Aqsa mosque for six months, from distributing cakes and falafel to worshippers after the prayer and fined him with around $140 (€129).
Calls for the "Great Dawn" campaign were widely circulated.
The campaign invited Palestinians to pray the dawn prayer at the al-Aqsa mosque as a sign of solidarity with the mosque and as a response to what is regarded as continuous violations of the holy site by the Israeli forces.
Kazakh violence puts spotlight on Chinese Muslim minority |
Vlad Tepes : Residents of the Dungan village of Masanchi in Kazakhstan clean up after the February 7 rampage, which resulted in 11 deaths, and saw hundreds of ethnic Kazakh assailants set fire to dozens of homes, shops and livestock in the village inhabited by ethnic Chinese Muslims.
The bloody clashes have highlighted underlying tensions in a region where many ethnic groups live side by side, and have left some in the Dungan community wondering what the future holds for them.

Christians are abducted, beaten and ‘forced to convert to Islam’ at refugee camp for predominantly Muslim Rohingya in Bangladesh - Sympathy for the Rohingyas???
Rohingya Muslims Rioting
BCF : A Christian pastor and his 14-year-old daughter have been abducted from a predominantly Muslim refugee camp in Bangladesh after families were viciously attacked and robbed by an angry mob.
Dozens of attackers beat up Christian residents, vandalized homes, and looted personal property in the sprawling Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazaar, Human Rights Watch reported.
The pastor and his daughter were abducted the day after the attack and his wife claims the teenager has been forced to convert to Islam and marry.
More than 700,000 Rohingya Muslims live in the refugee camp after fleeing the Myanmar military's 2017 campaign of ethnic cleansing. Approximately 1,500 Rohingya Christians are among them. The abducted pastor, named only as Taher, were abducted from their shelter in the camp on January 27.
His wife Roshida told Human Rights Watch that she fears her husband has been killed.
She added: 'No one can give me any clear information, but my relatives told me that my daughter has been forced to convert to Islam and marry.'
Police said that scores of men attacked 22 Christian families living in Kutupalong Camp 2 in Cox's Bazaar the night before the abductions.
At least 12 Rohingya Christian refugees were injured and hospitalized following the attack.
Wuhan Virus probably created by the Chinese themselves as a Biological Weapon

Yes, 100% true about Vaccines. -- They already have a vaccine for the Covid19 virus but they want more people to die of the virus so as to put "Fear" into EVERY ONE of us so that we will all WANT the vaccine!! ---- BTW ---- How many know that China makes up 1/3 of the entire Earth's population??
The Benghazi Cover Up by the Nigra Obummer and Killary
The Benghazi attack didn’t take place at an embassy, it happened at a ‘compound’. Arms dealing was taking place at the location.
Obama and Clinton both knew all about what was going on. Let’s dig up the documentation that proves it. It looks like the delay in sending help was orchestrated to allow the players there to be killed. The Susan Rice lie fest on TV was directed and ordered by either Obama or Clinton.

Nigeria: Christian org warns that some Muslims are trying to impose Sharia, “Democracy and Sharia are incompatible”
Saturday, February 15, 2020
Jihad Watch : “The truth, however, is that Democracy and Sharia are incompatible.
Sharia cannot displace Democracy, the deliberate policy of some
Nigerian Islamists in keeping with Sharia culture is attempting to
replace democracy with Sharia by first pretending that Sharia and
Democracy are compatible (taqiyya) until such a time that Sharia will
dominate and make Democracy impossible to exist in Nigeria.”
These Christians are in regular contact with Muslims in Nigeria.
Where did they get these ideas, which would be dismissed in the West as
“Islamophobic”? From their lived experience. “Christian Elders say Sharia replacing democracy in Nigeria, warns of civil war,” by Seun Opejobi, Daily Post, February 12, 2020:
Or if they did notice, why did
they think anything was amiss? After all, in September 2017, Pope
in the Vatican with Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa, the secretary
general of the Muslim World League (MWL), a group that has been linked
to the financing of jihad terror. During the meeting, al-Issa thanked the Pope
for his “fair positions” on what he called the “false claims that link
extremism and violence to Islam.”
In other words, he thanked the Pope
for dissembling about the motivating ideology of jihad terror, which his
group has been accused of financing, and for defaming other religions
in an effort to whitewash Islam.The summer before that, Ahmed al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Cairo’s al-Azhar, thanked him for his “defense of Islam against the accusation of violence and terrorism.”
Has any other Pope of Rome in the history of Christianity ever been
heralded as a “defender of Islam”? But that’s what Francis is. So why
should any Catholics in Indonesia have objected to this?

Sweden: “Refugees” rob 18-year-old, urinate in his mouth, call him “disgusting Swede, son of a whore”
Migrants who urinated into a teen's mouth
Jihad Watch : These migrants may not be Muslims. Their behavior, however, is
reminiscent of the deeply ingrained Islamic contempt for unbelievers:
“Muhammad is the apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are ruthless to
unbelievers, merciful to one another” (Qur’an 48:29). Ibn Kathir says
that the dhimmis, the “People of the Book” who have submitted to Islamic
hegemony as per Qur’an 9:29, must be “disgraced, humiliated and
belittled. Therefore, Muslims are not allowed to honor the people of
Dhimmah or elevate them above Muslims, for they are miserable, disgraced
and humiliated.” The seventh-century jurist Sa’id ibn al-Musayyab
stated: “I prefer that the people of the dhimma become tired by paying
the jizya since He says, “‘until they pay the jizya with their own hands
in a state of complete abasement.’”
As-Suyuti elaborates that Qur’an 9:29 “is used as a proof by those
who say that it is taken in a humiliating way, and so the taker sits and
the dhimmi stands with his head bowed and his back bent. The jizya is
placed in the balance and the taker seizes his beard and hits his chin.”
He adds, however, that “this is rejected according to an-Nawawi who
said, “‘This manner is invalid.’” Zamakhshari, however, agreed that the
jizya should be collected “with belittlement and humiliation.”
These “refugees” took money from Peter with belittlement and
humiliation. And they called him a “son of a whore,” a common Arabic and
Persian insult. How Sweden is enriched by the presence of such migrants! “Foreign robbers peed in Swedish teenager’s mouth while shouting racist slurs,” Voice of Europe, February 11, 2020 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Malaysiakini : “This will allow MPs, not only from PAS and Umno but also from Pakatan Harapan, to vote.”– Hadi Awang
| While many folks have been slagging off PAS’ confidence vote in the
old maverick Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, I think it’s an
extremely effective bit of political theatre that plays into the racial
and religious politics of this country and lays bare the schisms of
If DAP operatives vote against Mahathir (photo, above),
this will play into the narrative that Anwar is their puppet, and they
do not want a "strong" Malay leader. PKR, of course, with its
Azmin/Anwar turmoils will be forced to openly declare their allegiance
thereby destabilising Harapan further.
Umno, of course, is not exempt. There are factions within Umno who
are busy sitting on the fence, cowardly waiting to see who emerges - or
is that resurges - as the winner and declaring support for the old
maverick would further destabilise the power structures in Umno, which
has been slowly gaining ground with the wins of the last five
by-elections. Mahathir, of course, dares anyone in Harapan to sack him. "Well, it is up to the party. They (Harapan presidential council) can sack me
if they want to," he said. When told that Anwar said there would not be
a no-confidence vote or attempt to remove him after the Tanjung Piai
fiasco, "thank you" was his sarcastic reply.
Why History says Jerusalem Belongs to the Jews, when Islam came about, the Christian Byzantines were ruling Jerusalem
Friday, February 14, 2020
The Jewish connection to Jerusalem is an ancient and powerful one. Judaism made Jerusalem a holy city over three thousand years ago and through all that time Jews remained steadfast to it. Jews pray in its direction, mention its name constantly in prayers, close the Passover service with the wistful statement "Next year in Jerusalem," and recall the city in the blessing at the end of each meal.
What about Muslims? Where does Jerusalem fit in Islam and Muslim history? It is not the place to which they pray, is not once mentioned by name in prayers, and it is connected to no mundane events in Muhammad's life. The city never served as capital of a sovereign Muslim state, and it never became a cultural or scholarly center.
Little of political import by Muslims was initiated there.
One comparison makes this point most clearly: Jerusalem appears in the Jewish Bible 669 times and Zion (which usually means Jerusalem, sometimes the Land of Israel) 154 times, or 823 times in all. The Christian Bible mentions Jerusalem 154 times and Zion 7 times. In contrast, the columnist Moshe Kohn notes, Jerusalem and Zion appear as frequently in the Qur'an "as they do in the Hindu Bhagavad-Gita, the Taoist Tao-Te Ching, the Buddhist Dhamapada and the Zoroastrian Zend Avesta"—which is to say, not once.
Why is Jerusalem a “Sharia”—or legal—right forAfter raiding the Eastern Roman Empire’s Syrian territories for years, Emperor Heraclius mustered a massive army that met and fought the Muslims near the Yarmuk River, August, 636 (this pivotal battle is featured in chapter 1 of my new book, Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West). The Muslims defeated the Christian army, and by November were at and laying siege to the Holy City. The preserved sermon of its holed up patriarch, Sophronius, captures these times:
"Why are the troops of the Saracens attacking us? Why has there been so much destruction and plunder? Why are there incessant outpourings of human blood? Why are the birds of the sky devouring human bodies? Why have churches been pulled down? Why is the cross mocked? Why is Christ … blasphemed by pagan mouths? …
The vengeful and God-hating Saracens, the abomination of desolation clearly foretold to us by the prophets, overrun the places which are not allowed to them, plunder cities, devastate fields, burn down villages, set on fire the holy churches, overturn the sacred monasteries, oppose the Byzantine armies arrayed against them, and in fighting raise up the trophies [of war] and add victory to victory."

National Post : Love him or loathe him, U.S. President Donald Trump’s peace proposal
for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has formalized a seismic shift in
Mideast geopolitics; one that has been roiling and brewing since 2009.
so-called “Obama doctrine” in the Middle East was intended to
recalibrate American influence in the region, and its key strategy
seemed to be to fete and kowtow to Iran, in the belief that “respect”
would moderate the murderous mullahs.
It did not. The mullahs
grinned, Secretary Kerry bowed and scraped, and Iran continued to foment
war with its proxies and maintain its distinction as the pre-eminent
financier of global terrorism, all while crushing domestic civil
dissent. That, and Barack Obama’s failure to enforce his infamous “red
line” threat against Syria for attacking its own citizens with chemical
weapons in 2013, destroyed American credibility among its traditional
Middle Eastern allies.
Trump, on the other hand, gets stuff done.
Syria deploys chemical weapons? He responds militarily. Iranian general
Qassem Soleimani, mastermind of Iranian attacks on Jews and Americans
around the world, becomes careless with his comings and goings? He is
taken out in a clean drone strike. The Middle East is a very tough neighbourhood, one where “progressive” platitudes and gender equality are not high on the issues matrix. Trump is seen as a decisive, effective leader. Furthermore, his administration understands and supports the paramount regional concern: Iranian hegemony and militarism.
Trump’s “deal of the century” is a starting point, not an ending. It articulates baseline principles to be adhered to in direct negotiations between the parties — the Israelis and Palestinians. Seventy years after the founding of the state of Israel, it should not be wildly controversial for the Palestinian leadership to accept and recognize the existence and legitimacy of the Jewish state. Yet, they choke on it. They refuse. And that is because the Palestinian negotiating position has always been predicated on a commitment to the destruction of Israel.
This core doctrine of hatred and rejection is stated in the political constitutions of both Fatah (the ruling party in the West Bank) and Hamas. In spite of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s repeated pledges to amend the Fatah charter, first promised during the Oslo negotiations, he never got around to keeping his word. Nor has Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, the “moderate” who is now in the 15th year of a four-year presidential term.
Israel’s defense establishment has unveiled a laser-based system on Wednesday. The system is designed to provide protection from different kinds of projectiles like unguided rockets that are launched against Israel by knocking them out of the air.
The new system will complement the country’s existing layered air defense which consists of several air defense systems like Iron Dome, Arrow.
As per reports, the new system will undergo testing in the coming months and is likely to be operational within a year and a half.
Laser-based systems are being developed by several countries and are seen as a future of air defense.
In this video Defense Updates reports on Israel unveiling of Laser-based Interception System.Lasers need to heat the target to the point of penetrating its outer layer and then causing damage to something inside, either the motor or the explosive inside. if it does not hit any of those, and the missile is just a simple rocket without a guidance system then nothing happens and the iron dome must be used.
In short Lasers are good for drones.
The guy mentioned drone swarms... which is a waste of money. One does not need to focus on just one drone at a time. Just one big explosion above or below the swarm and almost the whole swarm is destroyed.

and BM21 Katyusha. The new rocket, test-fired against Ashkelon on March
28, 2006, weighs 66 kilograms and carries 17 kilograms of explosives.
It was developed in the Gaza Strip, allegedly with the aid of the

to launch Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.

of Palestinian militant group Hamas during the Al-Aqsa intifada. The
weapon was reportedly created and produced in clandestine workshops in
the Gaza strip under the direction of Adnan al-Ghoul until his
assassination by Israel. It was used for Palestinian rocket attacks on
Israel. The Batar consists of a simple launch tube supported by a tripod and
firing a projectile of unknown anti-tank or anti-personnel capabilities.
The rear of the rocket is connected to a wire, which allows Hamas
militants to fire the projectile from a safe distance.However, the al-Batar has proved to be ineffective against Israeli armor.

against targets in population centers.” Three models have been produced and used, the first being introduced
in 2001. More generally, all types of Palestinian rockets fired into

the company said. “Founded in 2009 by Arye Kohavi, Watergen uses its patented GENius heat-exchange technology to create the drinking water. “After the air is sucked in and chilled to extract its humidity, the
water that forms is treated and transformed into clean drinking water.
The technology uses a plastic heat exchanger rather than an aluminum
one, which helps reduce costs; it also includes proprietary software
that operates the devices.”
#2. A Breakthrough In Laser Defense
“Israel’s Defense Ministry announced on January 8 that a breakthrough
has been made in using laser beams to thwart aerial attacks. “According to Israel’s Channel 13, the technological development will
enable the long-range targeting and stabilization of laser beams,
allowing them to intercept targets at great distances. “Dudi Auster of the Optitronics Department at the Defense Ministry
said, ‘We can finally arrive at an effective laser weapons system that
can cut through the iron of rockets and missiles from kilometers away.’
“The system will be tested as early as the second half of 2020 and
will then be deployed near the southern border with the Gaza Strip to
complement the Iron Dome. “It was developed by the Defense Ministry in collaboration with
Israeli companies Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Elbit Systems. “The laser system will cost a great deal less per interception than
Iron Dome and is capable of intercepting targets as small as drones and
as large as precision missiles. “Brig. Gen. Yaniv Rotem, head of research and development at the
Defense Ministry’s Administration for the Development of Weapons and
Technological Infrastructure, said, ‘We are entering a new era of energy
warfare in the air, land and sea.’
“’R and D investments made in recent years place Israel among the
leading countries in the field of powerful lasers,’ he added. ‘It will
be a force multiplier for the IDF’s defense capabilities, whether it is
air defense, border protection or the IDF’s maneuvering capabilities.’ “’In the future, we would also like to see it airborne on aircraft and even use it as an offensive weapon,’ Rotem said. “Defense Minister Naftali Bennett commented, ‘The Israeli brain
continues to lead to breakthrough innovations. The laser project will
make our defense system more deadly, powerful, and advanced.’
“’This is a significant advance in strengthening the security of the
State of Israel,’ he added. ‘Alongside the existing weapons of war, we
have added a laser sword against our enemies in the north and south.’ “’We are moving forward with great momentum, and the message is
clear: Israel has tremendous offensive and defensive capabilities,’
Bennett said. ‘Israel’s enemies are better off not testing our patience
and capabilities.’ And just a dozen more, abridged for easy reading:
“The Jerusalem-based start-up, founded in 2010 by the team behind
Mobileye, is leading a revolution for the blind and visually impaired.
The company’s artificial intelligence wearable devices, equipped with
high-quality cameras, seek to change the lives of many by empowering
them to read text, recognize faces and more.”
“Developed by quadriplegic Israeli entrepreneur Dr. Amit Goffer,
ReWalk is a wearable robotic exoskeleton enabling paralyzed individuals
with spinal cord injuries to stand and walk again. Providing powered hip
and knee motion to users, the company’s technology is the first
exoskeleton device to receive FDA clearance for personal and
rehabilitation use in the United States. Earlier this year, the
exoskeleton helped paralyzed veteran Terry Hannigan Vereline complete
the New York City Marathon.”
#5. Iron Dome
“The Iron Dome air defense system, which first went into production
in 2011, has changed and saved the lives of countless Israeli residents
under rocket fire. Developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and
Israel Aerospace Industries, the Iron Dome intercepted over 700 rockets
during 2014’s Operation Protective Edge alone. In February 2019, the
United States Army purchased two Iron Dome batteries from Rafael to
protect troops against aerial threats.”
#6. Drone Dome
“Rafael is also the company that has come up with the Drone Dome
system, first displayed in 2016, is able to neutralize hostile drones
operated by terrorists and criminals. The anti-drone technology was
deployed in December 2018 at London’s Gatwick Airport by the British
Army after unmanned aerial vehicles caused the UK’s second-busiest
airport to completely cease operations for almost 36 hours.”
“As the United States turns its attention to advancing space
exploration, a radiation protection vest developed by Tel Aviv-based
StemRad could play a key role. Founded in 2011 by Dr. Oren Milstein and
Daniel Levitt, the AstroRad vest offers personal protective equipment
for astronauts to wear beyond low-Earth orbit, mitigating space
radiation exposure outside the Earth’s magnetosphere. Developed in
partnership with the Israel Space Agency and Lockheed Martin, the vest
is currently being tested by NASA prior to the launch of manned
#8. 3D printed heart
Researchers at Tel Aviv University grabbed the attention of the
medical world earlier this year when they “printed” the world’s first 3D
vascularized, engineered heart. The development, using a patient’s own
cells and biological materials, was hailed as a breakthrough for future
engineering of personalized tissue and organ replacement. Within a
decade, the researchers hope, organ printers will be located in
#9. Zebra Medical Vision
As the mammoth global healthcare market rapidly embraces innovation,
Shefayim-based healthcare start-up Zebra Medical Vision’s suite of
diagnostic solutions is transforming the world of triage. The company’s
technology has received four FDA approvals to date, using deep-learning
and artificial intelligence to automatically identify medical conditions
from patient scans, quickly notifying radiologists and enabling them to
both effectively address and prioritize urgent cases. #10 Revolutionary Antiviral Reusable Facemasks
“As the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak continues to spread, two Israeli
companies are finalizing development of revolutionary antiviral reusable
facemasks. “’Israel has technologies that can support controlling this
epidemic,’ says Liat Goldhammer-Steinberg, CTO of Sonovia in Ramat Gan. “More than 400 people are reported dead from complications of Wuhan coronavirus, dubbed 2019-nCoV. “The virus is spread by air and direct contact. The World Health
Organization reports approximately 17,00 cases of infection since
December 31. Most of the cases are in China. A few have been confirmed
in 15 additional countries.
“Because there is no vaccine or treatment for 2019-nCoV, personal
protective equipment is an important way to combat the transmission of
the virus and avoid a pandemic. “Disposable facemasks cannot block all pathogens and do not kill
them. A used and discarded mask can even become a vector for disease as
the pathogens multiply in its fibers.
“That’s why washable, reusable masks with anti-pathogen properties
could provide a potent prevention tool against the 2019-nCoV and other
coronaviruses that have evolved into more severe illnesses, such as SARS
and MERS. “Sonovia’s ultrasonic fabric finishing technology, invented by two
Bar-Ilan University chemistry professors, mechanically infuses
antiviral, antimicrobial zinc and copper oxide nanoparticles into
textiles for facemasks and other protective products. “Sonovia recently received a European Commission Horizon 2020 grant and the technology has won several prizes in China.
11. BioBee – harmless pest control
“With its headquarters located in a kibbutz in northern Israel’s Beit
Shean Valley, BioBee is now a multinational company that focuses on
biological pest control. Perfecting its biotechnology since 1983 under
the guidance of bug lover Akiva Falk, it aims to reduce the use of
pesticides in agriculture, using the natural power of insects to make
crops safer to eat and their habitat a more secure place to be.
“BioBee runs three projects simultaneously: breeding bumblebees for
pollination in greenhouses, using ‘friendly insects’ like mites, wasps
and beetles to attack harmful pests, and reducing the number of harmful
insects by genetically modifying their ability to reproduce.”
12. Waze – a navigation device with a twist
“When Ehud Shabati first tried using a GPS, he was simultaneously delighted and disappointed. “The engineer – a notoriously bad navigator – made it from A to B, but his journey was hindered by traffic and roadworks. “He looked into other GPS systems and found they were all effective
at guiding their users, even in remote locations, but they fell short in
the same way: they couldn’t provide traffic information in real time.
“So, Shabati took matters into his own hands. The engineer mapped out
his native Israel, first on his own and later with co-founders Uri
Levine and Amir Shinar, aiming to make a community-based navigation
device that provided road reports on the go. “Soon, the engineers had built a community of thousands of drivers on
Waze, using crowdsourcing to collect incident reports such as accidents
“Waze was sold to Google for USD$1.1billion in 2013, and today
provides real-time traffic information to more than 50 million users 13. Elbit Systems solution to allow planes to fight fires 24/7 “Elbit Systems HyDrop solution enables, for the first time,
continuous operations ‘to fight fires 24/7 and especially during the
night.’ “Since the 1950s, aerial firefighting has been conducted using liquid
cascade drop methods, which require firefighting sorties at low
altitudes. “Although effective, these methods are restricted to daytime-only flights because of their altitude.
“Haifa-based defense firm Elbit Systems is changing the way fires are
being fought, after completing its first successful test of the HyDrop
system, which allows planes to fight fires from a higher altitude and
with higher precision. “Elbit said the test took place during a field demonstration, as part of an exercise led by the Fire and Rescue Service. “During the exercise, two Air Tractor aircraft from were directed to
extinguish a burning field from as high as 150 m., which is more than
four times higher than the average altitude of a standard aerial
firefighting sortie, it explained.
“Using the HyDrop system, each aircraft launched 1.6 tons of 140-gram
liquid pellets in a computed ballistic trajectory, achieving a precise
hit with saturation of one to two liters per square meter.”
14. New Israeli tech prevents terror attack and water theft
“The innovative start-up Hydrantech has launched an electric bracelet
that can be attached to the nozzle of a fire hydrant to detect theft
and terror. “Hydrantech has found an innovative way to detect unusual water flows. “Dovik Barkay recalls that a few years ago in Safed, ‘someone stole
some gasoline, but the police caught up to him. He couldn’t just throw
the gasoline away on the street – it would smell – so he found a hydrant
and poured the gasoline inside. For three months, people in Safed
couldn’t drink the water,’ he told Israel21c.
“Barkay’s innovative tech addresses that exact problem: How can we
monitor water flows so as to prevent water theft and terror attacks that
would involve poisoning water? “He recently launched Hydrantech, a startup, based in northern Israel’s Ramat Yishay. “Barkay has degrees in law, industrial engineering and medical device
development. This is not his first attempt at developing water-tech,
but Hydrantech is based on a very innovative idea.
“Hydrantech has developed a smart, electronic bracelet that can be
attached to the nozzle of a fire hydrant to monitor water coming in and
outt. Each Hydrantech bracelet has a cellular transmitter that
communicates its status to a central control hub. The sensors in the
bracelet can “feel” the flow of water, and data is sent to the
Hydrantech cloud where software interprets whether water is moving out
or in. The Hydrantech interface runs on a regular web browser; if
there’s any problem, an alarm will appear in the browser and on mobile
“The technology will therefore warn a city’s authorities in real time
if the water presents any security issues – whether it is because water
is potentially being stolen or because there’s a possibility that the
water has been poisoned. “Hydrantech technology has already been launched in different Israeli
municipalities, including Haifa, Petah Tikva, Safed, Rosh Ha’ayin and
Tel Aviv. The fee of about $3 per hydrant covers the bracelet, the
monitoring software, cellular service, battery changes and software
upgrades. “Hydrantech has many plans for the future, including developing the
technology so it can also detect underground water leakage, measure
temperature and humidity, and even provide data about earthquakes.”
Okay, Israel, we get the idea. There’s no keeping up with you. We’re
plumb tuckered out. Mind if we pull up a chair and set a spell?
Jihad Watch : “A 30-year-old Islamic convert who was arrested after brandishing a
machete over the weekend is said to have quarrelled with a neighbouring
family whose 11-year-old daughter he wanted to marry….
The family called
the police and officers arrived at the address of the Islamic convert
who had locked himself in his mother’s home. When the officers attempted
to enter the home, they were showered with insults, and the 30-year-old
began reciting a prayer in Arabic…. Eventually, the man opened the door
but continued to threaten officers and, as a result, was hit with a
taser stun-gun but the weapon had no effect.
Then officers drew their
firearms, which led to the man putting down his machete.” Like so many Sharia conformists who violate human rights worldwide, Quentin B.
was zealously following Islamic doctrine, which permits child brides
and calls for Islam’s supremacy over disbelievers. His behavior
exhibited both. “France: Islamic Convert Armed with Machete Wanted to Marry 11-Year-Old,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, February 11, 2020 :
