Plots and schemes from those evil Jews

From long-time reader "DJ" comes this list of the latest travesties committed by Israel.

Oh those evil Zionists, what will they think of next!

From VeryGoodNewsIsrael July 22



“It’s not a product – it’s an industry”. Israeli biotech Medgenics’ CEO said its Biopump technology has the potential to “start a whole new pharmaceutical industry”. Medgenics’ technology manipulates patients’ own tissue to produce proteins to fight diseases, eliminating the need for hundreds of vaccines.

A deal to fight cancer. Israeli biotech BioView’s cancer scanning systems will be integrated with French company ScreenCell’s technology to isolate rare tumour cells. The combined solution will improve diagnosis and speed up medical decisions about the best treatment options.

New heart valve centre. US biotech ValCare is to open a centre in Israel to develop a heart valve repair device. The mitral annuloplasty device is implanted using a catheter, thus avoiding open-heart surgery. It prevents mitral valve regurgitation (blood flowing backwards into the heart) affecting 4 million US citizens.

PillCam gets approval in Japan. Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has issued reimbursement codes for Israel’s Given Imaging internal camera, so that it can be used as a first line tool in diagnoses.

Advanced medical clowning. (Thanks to Israel21c) Some of the world’s leading experts participated in the first Advanced Medical Clowning International Summer Seminar at the University of Haifa. Israel is a leader in professionalizing the field of medical clowning and providing scientific evidence for its effectiveness.


Clearing runways can save life. FODetect from Israel’s Xsight uses hybrid radar and electro optical technology to detect junk on runways. The system can prevent incidents such as when an Air France Concorde hit Foreign Object Debris (FOD) from a previous flight, caught fire and crashed, killing 113 people.

An exhibition for inventors. Tel Aviv is hosting the first of its kind Israeli Patents Exhibition in September. It intends to put 10,000 Israeli and foreign inventors, investors, patent attorneys, mechanical engineers and computer programmers in the same room and turn good ideas into actual products.

Yeshiva University scientists at Bar Ilan. 30 male and female undergraduate YU science majors will spend seven weeks of the summer carrying out their research in Bar Ilan University's state-of-the-art laboratories in Tel Aviv.

New York to import Israeli tech culture. Good video clip summarising Israel Technion’s involvement in the building of New York’s Technion Cornell Innovation Institute.

Star of tomorrow. The magazine Scientific American has featured 28-year-old Israeli physicist Eldad Kepten in its “30 under 30” list of future possible Nobel Laureates. Kepten’s speciality is the stochastic dynamics of chromatin (DNA) in the cellular nucleus with advanced microscopy and single particle tracking. Wonderful!

We can rebuild it. In 2005, an Israeli F16 plane crashed on landing. The front was completely shattered, its tail was broken, the wings were curved, and the engine was filled with mud. Seven years later, the plane has been repaired and the original pilot and navigator took it back into the air.

Military device to save lives. Tel Aviv-based Netline Communications Technologies has made one of the smallest jammers ever for stopping improvised explosive devices (IEDs). It was made after a NATO country for a "handball sized" jammer that elite units like Special Forces could carry in an urban operation.

For landing on the Moon. Dozens of volunteers are working to turn Israel into the fifth country in the world, to have landed spacecraft on the moon. The team presented a model of the tiny space vehicle at a meeting of the Knesset Science and Technology Committee’s subcommittee on space.


Another record for tourism to Israel. Nearly a quarter of a million tourists visited the Jewish State in June. 1.4 million tourists arrived in Israel during the first half of 2012. Both figures are up 6% on 2011 equivalents.

The world invests in Israel. According to the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), global foreign direct investment (FDI) inflow to Israel totalled $11.37 billion in 2011, 106% more than the $5.51 billion in 2010.

EU & Israel sign joint research agreement. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with visiting European Union President José Manuel Barroso in Jerusalem on Monday to oversee the signing of a new water and energy cooperation deal on technological development.

Singapore shows off Israeli water technology. A delegation of 13 Israeli water technology companies are exhibiting at Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2012. Specialities include purification, advanced filtering, transport infrastructure, biological monitoring, and energy-efficient desalination solutions.

Waze reaches 20 million customers. The navigation app from Israel’s Waze has been downloaded by millions of Americans, Europeans and Israelis. Muslim Malaysia has 600,000 subscribers. Waze is now targeting Japan, Korea and China.

US fibre optics firm sees Red. US Fibre optic communications giant Finisar has bought up Israel’s RED-C Optical Networks Inc. RED-C was founded in 2000 and has over 140 employees, all of whom are located in Israel.

Phillips has a healthy future in Israel. Phillips CEO met with Israeli President Shimon Peres following his visit to Phillips’ 600-employee development team in Haifa. Peres said, "Phillips occupies a central place in Israel's high-tech industry”.

Recharging Australia’s cars. Better Place Inc. has teamed up with Australia carmaker GM Holden Ltd. to provide battery recharging services and equipment for the Volt electric car. Customers who choose to install a Better Place Charge Spot can charge their Volt in under four hours.

Your TV knows your taste. Israel’s Jinny is a discovery engine for your TV. It suggests programs that match your taste and mood. It has now teamed up with Swisscom for integration into On Demand and live TV.

A blue & white send-off for Israel’s athletes. (Thanks to Israel21c) Israel’s Olympic and Paralympic teams had a gala send-off at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem. The 38 Olympians and 25 Paralympians began spontaneously to sing the song “All the world is a very narrow bridge, and the main thing is not to be afraid.”

Before the accident he was a couch potato. (Thanks to Israel21c) Until a crippling motorcycle accident in 1999, Israeli high-tech exec Nati Gruberg was a paunchy couch potato. He jokes that he barely lifted a finger. In August, he’ll be one of three Israeli handcyclists heading to the London Paralympic Games.
