While the Muslim world is focused on the best way to destroy the Jewish state, the Jewish state is focused on the best way to save mankind:
In a breakthrough development, the Israeli company Vaxil BioTherapeutics has formulated a therapeutic cancer vaccine, now in clinical trials at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem. If all goes well, the vaccine could be available about six years down the road, to administer on a regular basis not only to help treat cancer but in order to keep the disease from recurring.
Europe’s war against IsraelÂ (Andrew Bolt)
It turns out that various politically active, generally far left-wing Israeli NGOs, some of which deny the very legitimacy of the Israeli government, get funding from various European governments (see, e.g.,this detailed NGO Monitor Report…). Some of these organizations, for example, support the international “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” efforts against Israel….
These NGOs are often given special legitimacy in the international media because they are purportedly Israeli NGOs. NGO Monitor’s investigations show that many of them are, in fact, organizations with little if any domestic base within Israel and instead represent the views of the international far left with a fig leaf of Israeli leadership drawn from its domestic far left.
Israelis … are now considering a measure that would ban foreign government funding of political NGOs above a certain low level… Whether this particular measure is workable, and whether it’s the best way to deal with the situation, I’ll again leave for another time.
What’s striking, however, isÂ the EU’s reaction:
The EU’s ambassador to Israel, Andrew Standley, contacted the prime minister’s national security adviser, Yaakov Amidror, on Thursday and warned him that passage of the legislation could harm Israel’s standing in the West as a democratic country.
So the idea here, obviously is that a “democratic” country must allow foreign governments, who represent foreign citizens and not Israelis, to interfere in its domestic politics by supporting organizations that range from the fringe left to beyond the fringe left.
Now that is chutzpah! Imagine if Israel was funneling millions of Euros annually to Basque separatists in Spain, Flemish nationalists in Belgium, or to one of numerous neo-fascist fronts in Norway and France. I have a very strong feeling that the EU’s views of what “democratic” countries must tolerate from foreign governments would change rather quickly.

Shhhhh…the idea of non-Jews being happy and willing to contribute to Israel’s defense is a secret that must not get out. Â It could really hurt all those conferences and books and people that swear that Israel is an apartheid state.
