Good News Friday

To counter-balance the focus on the destruction by fire in the south of Israel by Palestinian arsonists from Gaza, I thought it would be both refreshing and an object lesson in how Israel treats its precious nature resources to bring you the following videos for my Good News Friday installment.

See how Israel contributes to the well-being of the world’s oceans on World’s Ocean Day:

And the following video demonstrates so clearly how Israel contributes to the global effort to combat desertification:

This is in stark contrast to the arsonists of Gaza who are doing everything in their power to return the greened desert to its original desolation, all for the sake of destroying Israel. And they do this while claiming to love the land.

Anyone who loves the land does not burn it. It’s that simple.

Israel does everything in its power to make life better for its own citizens, the citizens of the world, and even its own enemies. If only they would accept our outstretched hand in peace.

I wish the residents of the south a peaceful safe Shabbat, may Hashem protect you and all our soldiers.

I wish everyone a Shabbat Shalom.

    “Anyone who loves the land does not burn it. It’s that simple.”
    And that’s the entire conflict in a nutshell.

    You hit the nail on the head.Israel cares for its citizens,its land and that of the whole world.Hamas has sworn to kill us and wipe out Israel by any means.Even if they spoil their own ecological balance whilst doing it.

    It’s called cutting off their nose to spite their face. Or cutting off our nose to spite everyone else. Or something.

    re desalination: Anne, you’re preaching to the converted, as the saying goes, on this site!

    This reminds me of the arguments over on engageonline a few years back, when the pushback from South African BDSers against Israeli-led research on desalination in SA surfaced there. One Ran Greenstein, a South African academic of Israeli origin kept going on about the Israelis “ethnic cleansing” Arabs from what became “Green Line” Israel, but chose to ignore every comment I made drawing parallels between his allegations and the Bantustan policy of apartheid South Africa.

    And I made them several times.

    I also suggested that they could get the Israelis out (without their technology remaining, but the South Africans would suffer (as they are), and the Israelis would carry on with their other partners, including the Jordanians.

    I was surprised (irony warning) that he and the others failed to respond to this loss on their part.

    Can’t imagine why!

    I’d provide a link or two, but it was several years ago and we all know what happened next.

      Very interesting Brian. I wrote about South Africa’s cutting of its nose to spite its face about Israeli desalination just a couple of months ago. I didn’t know that their objections went back so far.

      Edit: on reading the comments to that article (back in February!) I see you mentioned the same articles. I should pay more attention!

      It just goes to show that anti-Zionism and/or antisemitism makes you stupid.

        Now then, Anne, stop pretending that the fact that you have a full-time day job, help out with the rest of the family (just like all the members of your extended family in Israel), spend time with grandchildren (the best unpaid job in the whole world), and much else, including running an important website, is a very good set of reasons for nor being able to remember absolutely everything that happens here.

        It’s easier for me: I’m retired…

          LOL 🙂

          I was only ever in part time employment and that has now ended with the move of my work place to another city. I am now a volunteer at the local hospital plus I’ve started a study course on Tanach and Israeli history. Fascinating!

  6. Brian Goldfarb says:

    No, Anne, you pay plenty of attention, but you choose not to let your full-time day-job, helping out with the rest of the family and, far from least, spending time with grandchildren, etc, be used as a reason for failing to remember that we have, collectively, been here before…and almost certainly will be here again, with the nay-sayers refusing to accept reality.

    Sorry for the double posting: I thought the first posting, just above this one, had been lost.
