This place was called Tel Al-Rabi, but the Zionists and Jews Hebraicized the name to Tel AvivÖ. I have documents and proof. I have all the papers here. The documents...

    The area between the old and new bus stations in south Tel-Aviv is on its way to becoming a ghetto made up of African refugees living in the most squalid of conditions and turning the already run-down area into a time bomb the municipality can no longer ignore. The few blocks adjacent to the new bus terminal are crawling with close to a thousand African refugees, with the lucky ones crammed into 8 dilapidated bomb-shelters while hundreds more sleep out in Lewinsky Park bordering Lewinsky, Har Zion, Levander, Matalon and Golomb streets. The area is already home to about 40,000...

    1) A Summit based on Arabist false language. 2) Is Israel's survival on the table? Re: ILLEGAL Arab "Palestinians" have semantics Let's see, those Arab immigrants grandchildren, the so called "Palestinians", don't really pay much for their parents/grandparents, and their own crimes of initiating attacks on little Israel with a clear attempt of annihilation (What "occupation"? what was their plan in 1929, 1948, and all those years priort to 1967? and why are most attacks on innocent unarmed Israelis in: Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Netanya, Haifa, etc.?) So basically, they are back at square one, when the ILLEGAL Arab "Palestinians" refused...

    Neurologists at Jerusalem's Hadassah-University Hospital, Ein Kerem, are the first in the world to help multiple sclerosis (MS) and amyotropic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients by injecting their spinal columns with large numbers of adult stem cells taken from their bone marrow and multiplied in culture. The clinical trial, while "encouraging" and "promising," remains highly experimental, as all the patients have undergone a single injection with no untreated control group for comparison. With the first patients having received it two years ago, it is too early to know how successful it will be in the long term. Prof. Dimitrios Karousis, a...

Bush to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, this on the 40th anniversary of the Six Day War. The Senate is expected to approve a similar motion later in the day. However, the Clinton and Bush administrations have refrained from moving the embassy for fear of riots against American embassies in Arab countries and a possible decline in the US's status.In the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 Congress determined that Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel...

It also calls on Mr. Bush to adhere to the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, which authorized the funds to begin moving the embassy and declared that it was American policy...

    I've just returned from an Israel Policy Forum leadership trip to Israel, and there was not much of the end-of-the-world rhetoric one hears so often at pro-Israel conclaves here. Take former prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, for instance. Although here in the United States he sometimes sounds pessimistic about Israel's future, on his home turf he was bullish about Israel and particularly about its economy. (His one caveat was that all bets are off if suicide bombings resume). But all in all, Netanyahu, like his colleagues from across the political spectrum, was anything but apocalyptic about the future. As for the...

    BERN, Switzerland -- For centuries, this Alpine nation has successfully relied on a strict policy of political neutrality to insulate it from the wars, invasions and revolutions that have raged outside its borders. These days, a new threat has emerged: one from within. As they have elsewhere in Europe, Islamic radicals are making inroads in Switzerland. Last month, Swiss officials announced the arrests of a dozen suspects who allegedly conspired to shoot down an Israeli airliner flying from Geneva to Tel Aviv. In a related case, a North African man has been charged with organizing a plot from Swiss soil...
