How Many NBA Championships Have the Lakers Won?
by Cody Williams 3 years ago lakeshowlife.com
“…Since 1947, the Lakers have won an incredible 16 NBA Championships over the course of the franchise. They won five titles (1949, 1950, 1952, 1953, and 1954) while in Minneapolis and went on to win 11 after moving to LA (1972, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009, and 2010)…”

The 10 Best High School Basketball Players of All Time

OCTOBER 16, 2013 bleacherreport.com
“..8. Kobe Bryant, Lower Merion, Philadelphia, Pennslyvania
3 OF 10
Despite his accomplishments as a high school junior and senior, 12 NBA teams weren’t sold on his long-term outlook. And the one that drafted him decided to flip him for Vlade Divac.

Pennsylvania’s Player of the Year in 1995, Bryant went for 31 points, 10.4 boards and 5.2 assists a game as a junior. And just when he hit NBA radars, Bryant upped himself and his draft stock as a high school senior.

From USA Today to Parade Magazine, Bryant swept up every National Player of the Year Award that was out there. He had led Lower Merion to its first AAAA state title in 53 years, finishing his last three seasons with a 73-13 record.

With 2,883 career points, Bryant had outscored Wilt Chamberlain to set the all-time mark in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

After being selected as a lottery pick in 1996, Bryant helped spark an era that saw a number of high schoolers declare early, and influence a few NBA teams to bite. ..”

Kobe Bryant: Most Tragic Loss In Sports History

Kobe Bryant Dead – Did He Know the Lord?

‘It’s in His Hands Now’: What Led Kobe Bryant to Return to His Faith .cbn.com
“…Bryant had difficulties in his personal life, facing a sexual assault charge that was later dismissed in a settlement with the accuser.

During a 2015 interview with GQ, he said that confronting those challenges led him to consider certain life choices he was making and return to his faith for guidance.

“The one thing that really helped me during that process – I’m Catholic, I grew up Catholic, my kids are Catholic – was talking to a priest. It was actually kind of funny: He looks at me and says, ‘Did you do it?’ And I say, ‘Of course not.’ Then he asks, ‘Do you have a good lawyer?’ Uh, yeah, he’s phenomenal. So then he just said, ‘Let it go. Move on. God’s not going to give you anything you can’t handle, and it’s in His hands now. This is something you can’t control. So let it go.’ And that was the turning point,” Bryant told GQ.

Interesting Facts behind the Story

Physics of “The Current War”: Edison, Westinghouse & Tesla (AC vs. DC)

Thomas Edison Did Everything He Could To Stop Nikola Tesla Succeeding | Tesla’s Death Ray

Electric Chair

Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, and the Invention of the Electric Chair (2002)

First execution by electric chair. William Kemmler, the first executed in the electric chair


In 1889, New York’s Electrical Execution Law, the first of its kind in the world, went into effect, and Edwin R. Davis, the Auburn Prison electrician, was commissioned to design an electric chair. Closely resembling the modern device, Davis’ chair was fitted with two electrodes, which were composed of metal disks held together with rubber and covered with a damp sponge. The electrodes were to be applied to the criminal’s head and back.

On August 6, 1890, William Kemmler became the first person to be sent to the chair. After he was strapped in, a charge of approximately 700 volts was delivered for only 17 seconds before the current failed. Although witnesses reported smelling burnt clothing and charred flesh, Kemmler was far from dead, and a second shock was prepared. The second charge was 1,030 volts and applied for about two minutes, whereupon smoke was observed coming from the head of Kemmler, who was clearly deceased. An autopsy showed that the electrode attached to his back had burned through to the spine.

Dr. Southwick applauded Kemmler’s execution with the declaration, “We live in a higher civilization from this day on,” while American inventor George Westinghouse, an innovator of the use of electricity, remarked, “They would have done better with an axe.”..”

THOMAS EDISON

JP MORGAN

J.P. Morgan – Biography and Life Story – 360p

British Secret Service Agent J. P. Morgan reformation.org
J.P. Morgan tried to keep the entire world in the DARK by sabotaging Tesla’s AC current!!
“…Morgan fought a ferocious war against AC current!!

Today, 3 phase alternating current electrifies the entire world. What most people don’t know is that J. P. Morgan and his crony Thomas Edison fought a ferocious battle against alternating current. It is called the War of the Currents, and lasted from 1885 to 1912…

Edison was clueless about the great benefits of AC.

In 1884, a young Serb immigrant named Nikola Tesla introduced him to his AC motor.

Edison and his boss Morgan completely rejected this revolutionary invention…

Tesla worked for many months and finally the problem was solved. Did Edison keep his promise and pay him for all his hard work?. . . absolutely not….Tesla quit the Edison Company in disgust:

For a paltry few thousand dollars they lost not only a man who would have saved them many times that amount each year, but they also lost an opportunity to obtain world control of the greatest and most profitable electrical invention ever made. (O’ Neill, Prodigal Genius, p. 58).
After quitting the Edison Company, Tesla had to work as a manual laborer for a year digging the streets of New York. This was the worst time in his life as a poor stranger in a strange land….He was befriended by the foreman of the work gang who persuaded him to form his own company.


The first application of current was botched and Kemmler did not die until the current was fired up a second time. When he was dead, the Morgan owned newspapers (New York Times) said that he had been “Westinghoused.”

Thank God that this desperate, deadly gambit by Morgan and Edison failed to turn people away from AC and eventually AC triumphed over DC and became the standard universal current…

J. P. Morgan owned the Titanic!!

Colonel John Jacob Astor IV was a close friend and financier of Tesla. Tesla lived at his hotel, the Waldorf Astoria, in New York City.

Tesla’s wireless transmission of electricity offered free electricity to the entire world. That was just too much for Morgan and the Bank of England. They wanted to control all forms of energy around the world.

..
Only months after Morgan’s death, the corrupt 3rd Bank of the “United States” was chartered; and in 1917 the United States was lured into war in Europe by MI6.

WESTINGHOUSE

WESTINGHOUSE (Full Documentary) | The Powerhouse Struggle of Patents & Business with Nikola Tesla

Life in Wilmerding
The Ideal Home Town

(From The Wilmerding News, September 2, 1904)loc.gov
‘..The first named is composed almost entirely of the more enlightened and prominent men employed by the great Westinghouse plant which forms the sole industrial basis of the place. Electricians, engineers, clerks, surveyors, heads of departments and mechanics are found in the ranks of this organization, a delightful fellowship pervading the whole. Many of the members are college graduates, coming from such standard schools as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Yale, Harvard or University of Chicago. The features described, however, do not constitute the sole basis for the superiority of Wilmerding as an attractive residence quarter and as a town in general. The streets are excellently paved and kept as clean as can be and the business buildings erected of late bear the stamp of beauty as well as being perfectly adapted to their uses. The residence streets, particularly Marguerite Avenue, are beautiful with well kept shade trees and lawns and are lined with handsome, substantial houses. There are many artistic front yards in Wilmerding, thanks to the broad minded policy of the Westinghouse interests in offering annual prizes for the best examples of this kind. The company sets a signal example itself in the beautifying of the spacious grounds around the big office building. There are rows of magnificent plants of all kinds and beds of beautiful collas, all maintained in faultless condition by expert gardeners…”

NIKOLA TESLA

Nikola Tesla Biography

Nikola Tesla’s Religion and Political Views | HollowverseThe … hollowverse.com
“…Tesla was raised a Serbian Orthodox. His family was likely quite devout as his father was a priest in the church.1

As an adult, Tesla developed a nuanced view of religion and mankind’s place in the universe. You could say his personal philosophy was closer to Buddhist with its orientation toward unity and oneness. He often said things like:..

Tesla never fully bucked his Christian indoctrination and at the very least, he acknowledged it, saying:

The gift of mental power comes from God, Divine Being, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we become in tune with this great power. My Mother had taught me to seek all truth in the Bible; therefore I devoted the next few months to the study of this work.5..”

Witchcraft in the Philippines: as millennials fall under the spell, businesses are catching on Alixandra Vila

Published: 7:45am, 30 Jan, 2019 scmp.com
The rise of liberal millennials in the Philippines has brought witchcraft and the mystical forces of nature from the fringes into the mainstream
Businesses are joining in, with themed restaurants, occult bars, and beers celebrating the country’s mythological creatures
‘..Numerous records indicate that in pre-colonial Philippines, Filipinos worshipped Bathala, the Tagalog supreme deity who created the universe. They believed in engkantos, the spirits of ancestors or guardians of nature who are said to have the ability to appear in human form. Communities were dominated by babaylans (shamans) and mananambals (witches) that practise sacred rituals and magic.
..

“I go to different parts of the country to seek ingredients,” Demetrio says. “I go to the mountains, the jungle, talk to local people, including witch doctors who are known to have knowledge about rare ingredients found only in our land. It is through them that I learned to respect all that nature provides. I was inspired by them to transform these ingredients into something that would be enjoyed by whoever comes here.”

LMFAO. Just to clarify, that guy was an albularyo (from spanish herbolario, “herbalist”). They’re not really the ones who gave Siquijor its reputation. Honestly most of it is just sleight of hand. Don’t feel bad at laughing.

The original “witches” of Siquijor were actually shamans, called babaylan, who escaped Spanish prosecution. And they were almost always women or homosexual men. As shamans, they were the religious leaders of the villages. They didn’t need theatrics and magic tricks. Their main job was interceding. Talking to the spirit world for advice or healing or cursing enemies. Hence why it’s mostly women and gay men because they were believed to have female spirits who had a stronger connection to the spirit world (giving birth and all that).

This also meant that when the Spanish arrived and introduced Christianity they were the first to go. They were reduced to being “healers” (usually doing things like therapeutic massage or hilot, setting bones, or midwifery), while Catholic priests took over their religious roles. A few babaylan attempted to lead revolts against the Spanish because of this, but all of them failed. As a result, almost none of the traditions survived. Modern albularyo are a far cry from the babaylan.

Now You Know: Church of Scientology

Roots

The Bizarre True Story of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard Apr 26, 2019 Katie Vernon thevintagenews.com
“..During his time in the military, Hubbard kept a diary. He famously suffered from a lack of self-esteem, so would write strange messages to himself in order to try and raise his confidence levels. Messages like “I can have no doubts in my psychic powers” and “Men are your slaves” were written there. Many of his writings were related to his prowess in bed. The Church of Scientology has kept a lot of these so-called “affirmations” under wraps for years…

“..The e-meter was actually invented by Volney Mathison. It is nothing more than a crude lie detector (galvanic skin response meter.) By the way, L. Ron Hubbard ruined Mathison. Interestingly, the same fate awaited David Mayo, Hubbard’s auditor and the creator of many of the Scientology ‘Rundowns’ and ‘OT levels’. In fact, many people have been hurt or had their families viciously broken up through scientology ‘disconnection’, and have suffered harassment through ‘fair-game’.

Finally, if readers would like to do some fact-checking on L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Scientology, Chris Owen and David Touretzky have written much on the subject of Hubbard’s true biographical history…

Former Scientology member sues church, claims child abuse and human trafficking

10News WTSP
Published on Jun 20, 2019
The Church of Scientology and its leader David Miscavige are the targets of a lawsuit by a former member of the church, who alleges child abuse, human trafficking and intimidation.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Los Angeles. In court documents, the defendant was called Jane Doe to protect her identity.

According to the lawsuit, Doe was born to Scientologist parents in 1979 and lived from ages 6-12 at the spiritual headquarters of the church in Clearwater.

She claims she was forced to work from 8 a.m. to midnight and only instructed on Scientologist teachings.

Doe claimed at age 10, she was subjected to a ritual called “bullbaiting,” where she says she had to sit in a chair while obscene things were shouted at her. According to the lawsuit, she was expected to show no reaction; if she did, she claims the practice would start over.

The lawsuit says when she was 15, Doe was lured to Los Angeles with promises of fair pay and a simple job. Instead, she claims she was forced to work long hours for little pay.

She became a member of the Sea Org, which the suit describes as a military-like “sub-organization for Scientology’s most dedicated members.” The suit claims members sign a “billion-year contract” dedicating their lives to the church and work an average of 100 hours a week for $46.

Doe said she started working as Miscavige’s steward seven days a week and became close to his wife, Shelly.

Miscavige, though, had a falling out with his wife in 2005, Doe said. That led to Doe being sent to “the hole,” a pair of double-wide mobile homes where those accused of ethics violations were kept under strict surveillance, the lawsuit alleges.

She claims she was kept there for three months, then sentenced to three months of hard labor.

Doe claims she witnessed a crying Shelly Miscavige being dragged into a car. Shelly Miscavige has not been seen or heard publicly since, according to the lawsuit.

Doe said she tried to escape the church in 2016 but came back because of her family connections. She finally left for good in 2017 and now works with actress Leah Remini, who has become an outspoken critic of Scientology.

Doe’s story became part of an episode of Remini’s TV series “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath,” which told the story of defected church members.

The suit claims the church set up a hate website — leahreminiaftermath.com — that targeted Doe and the others featured on the show. The website contains what the suit calls “false, defamatory and inflammatory information about Jane Doe, all under the (Church of Scientology) copyright.”

The suit claimed similar articles and videos about Doe appeared on the official website of Freedom Magazine, a Scientology-run publication.

The lawsuit seeks damages for multiple complaints, including false imprisonment; kidnapping; stalking; libel; slander; invasion of privacy; intentional infliction of emotional distress; human trafficking; failure to pay minimum wage; exceeding maximum work hours and overtime, failure to provide days of rest and meal periods; violation of California labor codes; fraudulent inducement of employment; negligent misrepresentation; and negligence.

“Scientology for decades has sought to quash dissention, cover up its long history of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse of its members, including its most vulnerable members, its children, and weaponize its doctrine against those who escape and find the courage to speak up,” said Attorney Brian Kent of Laffey, Bucci & Kent, LLP, which filed the lawsuit. “This is just the beginning and we are not going to stop until they do.”

In response to the lawsuit, a spokesperson for the Church of Scientology said the lawsuit was filled with nothing more than unfounded allegations. The spokesperson said Jane Doe’s complaint was littered with “anti-religious slurs culled from the tabloids” and accusations that have already been disproven in courts.

“We are confident the lawsuit will fail,” the Church of Scientology wrote in an email. “Federal courts have already determined that service in the Church of Scientology’s religious order is voluntary and protected by the First Amendment. Moreover, the evidence will establish that while serving the Church, Plaintiff came and went freely, traveled the world, and lived in comfortable surroundings. The Church will vigorously defend itself against these unfounded allegations.”

“..Breakthrough centers around the true story of teenager John Smith, a young man from St. Charles, Missouri. Just like any other kid his age, John — who was adopted by his parents, Joyce and Brian, when he was just a baby — attended middle school and played sports … until tragedy struck.

After 15 minutes underwater, the teenager was finally pulled to the surface by first responders and taken to the nearby St. Joseph Hospital West. His body was cold and lifeless, and doctors tried to administer CPR for 43 minutes with no success. Emergency room doctor Kent Sutterer was preparing to deliver the tragic news to John’s mother, Joyce, when she entered her son’s hospital room and quickly said a desperate prayer: “Holy Spirit, please come and give me back my son!” she prayed aloud, according to People…

History

Origin of the Name Palestine palestinefacts.org
Where did the name Palestine come from?
The name Palestine is given to the region spreading from eastern Mediterranean coast to the Jordan Valley to the area covering Galilee Lake in the north and southern Negev Desert. The origin of this word lies in Pleshethâ€. This is a name appearing frequently in the Bible and have started being known as Philistine in English. The world root of Pleshethâ lies in the word palahâ was is a term used generally in the sense of migratory, referring to the Palestinian’s conquest of the coast of Mediterranean. These people were mostly originates of Asia Minor and Greece and gradually became a part of the Arab world…”

In AD 135, the Emperor Hadrian blotted out the name Provincia Judea and renamed it Provincia Syria Palaestina. This was the Latin version of the Greek name and soon became a name to be used as an administrative unit. This name was shortened to Palaestina and the name Palestine was derived from it as a modern and anglicized version. No changes occurred to this name until after the fourth century had passed when Palestine was divided in to three regions, following the imperial reorganization. The name Palestine was used by the Christian Crusades to regard all three of the divided regions in general and continued to be used for the regions on both sides of the Jordan River in general. Palestine went under the rule of the Ottoman Turks for 400 years where its administration was attached to Damascus. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, the name Palestine was revived and was applied to the land falling under the British Mandate for Palestine. Arabs use the name Falastinâ for Palestine which is an Arab pronunciation of the Roman word Palaestina. ..

“..The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

EXODUS – Trailer (1960)

Exodus: The Real Story openu.ac.il
“..Prof. Aviva Halamish of the Department of History, Philosophy and Judaic Studies, opened her lecture on “The True Story of Exodus” by asking if anyone in the audience had any personal connection with the Exodus. Two people raised their hands; one who had a birth certificate indicating that he was one of tens of babies born on the very same embattled ship of Jewish refugees.

“The real story of Exodus ” Prof. Halamish explained “is not reenacted in the Otto Preminger film based on Leon Uris’ book. And, there is no Paul Newman either. The real story of the Exodus also played no part in influencing the UN decision for partition, nor did it influence the recommendations of the UNSCOP commission, “which according to Halamish “just happened to coincide with the arrival of the Exodus in Haifa’s port.”

The real story of the boat known as Exodus is no less astounding and epic in nature than the story portrayed in the 1960 film, by the same name. The Exodus, which departed from France on July 11, 1947, was filled to capacity with 4,500 Jewish refugees, making it the most populous boat to bear refugees to Palestine since the end of the Holocaust. For nearly the entire journey, the Exodus was followed by 6 British ships which, in spite of the Honduras flag which flew from its mast, had early on identified the Exodus as belonging to the struggling Jewish government in Palestine. In addition to the refugees, the Exodus carried 36 American volunteers and a cadre of Israeli Jewish volunteers largely despatched from the Jewish Agency, the official governing body of the Jewish population in Palestine.

The timing, unlike the portrayal in the film, “had more to do with the Tour de France than the UNSCOP — The United Nations Special Committee on Palestine — which was then visiting Palestine and was chartered to bring its recommendations for resolving the issue of the warring Arab and Jewish populations in Palestine” Prof. Halamish revealed.

Why the Tour de France? The Jewish leadership felt that world attention would be riveted more to the Tour de France, than a sole boat chugging its way from France to Haifa. ..

However, and this is one of the other reasons that the story of the Exodus has taken on almost mythic proportions, the British decided that they needed to “teach the refugees,” (and probably the Jewish Agency and its agents throughout the world) “a lesson.” As a result, all of the 4,500+ refugees were reboarded onto three boats to begin a three-day journey back to France.

France agreed to accept the refugees provided that they “would alight willingly” and here was the catch. In spite of the fact that there was little communication among the three boats, and there were refugees of various backgrounds, languages and ages — no one would agree to willingly alight. A few did: those who were injured during the ocean battle with the British, and women whose pregnancies were considered riskier. Those whose pregnancies and pending deliveries were considered to be ‘normal’ insisted on staying on the boat. All told 150 people got off the boat. …”

In U.N. Speech, Noam Chomsky Blasts United States for Supporting Israel, Blocking Palestinian State

General Assembly at an event sponsored by the United Nations Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People. “The pattern that was set in January 1976 continues to the present,” said Chomsky, Institute Professor Emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “Israel rejects a settlement of these terms and for many years has been devoting extensive resources to ensuring it will not be implemented with the unremitting and decisive support of the United States — military, economic, diplomatic and ideological.”

->Jewish background

Why Palestinian Davids will defeat the Zionist Goliath By Kevin Barrett on November 1, 2015 veteranstoday.com
“..The current outbreak of what looks to become the Third Intifada is rooted in the belligerent, uncompromising, expansionist and genocidal policies of the state of Israel, which have continued regardless of what the Palestinians do. We’ve seen the Israelis “mowing the lawn in Gaza” every few years, killing thousands of innocent civilians. We see ongoing brutalization of the Palestinian population that is clearly designed to make life unlivable for the Palestinians. And this amounts to genocide, as professor Lawrence Davidson of West Chester University has said. He is from a Jewish background himself. And he is far from the only person from a Jewish background who recognizes that the current policies of the Israeli government amount to genocide. So given that there has been absolutely no progress on the political front, and given that the Zionist leadership is under the domination of a certified psychopath, Benjamin Netanyahu, one of the principle authors of the September 11th Zionist coup d’état in the United States, it is clear that the only way the Palestinians have any hope of maintaining their struggle over the long term, which is what is required, is to admit that negotiations currently are not possible – and to opt for military resistance…

The cost of the Zionist occupation of Palestine is getting higher and higher. Here in the United States, more and more Americans are waking up and realizing that since the coup of September 11th, which about one-third of Americans realize was an inside job, the United States has spent trillions of dollars – as much as four or five trillion dollars according to some counts – in wars designed to destabilize Israel’s enemies, and to ultimately work for the interests of Israel, not the United States. So the costs of the Zionist project have reached a ridiculous level. The economy of the United States has been crippled by the 9/11 wars for Israel. This (asymmetry) is perhaps the most important dimension of the asymmetric struggle between the Palestinians and the Zionists. The Zionists have to spend millions of millions of dollars to try to defend against what the Palestinians can do with a two dollar knife or a ten dollar per month internet connection.”

‘Everything is a target’: Gaza residents decry Israeli strikes

“..On Tuesday, the armed wing of Hamas, the group that administers the Gaza Strip, warned it would increase attacks and fire rockets at the Israeli towns of Ashdod and Beersheba if Israel continues to carry out air raids on civilian buildings.

The statement by al-Qassam Brigades was released hours after a rocket from Gaza killed an Israeli man in the coastal town of Ashkelon.

At least seven Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks since late on Monday, in the worst flare-up of violence between the two sides since the 2014 Israeli assault on the Strip.

The escalation came after at least seven other Palestinians were killed on Sunday in a covert Israeli operation, to which Hamas responded with rocket fire from Gaza. One Israeli soldier was also killed in the undercover raid near Khan Younis…”

ANALYSIS: Israel Readies for Third Gaza War Tuesday, November 13, 2018 | Yochanan Visser .israeltoday.co.il
“..The dramatic announcement, a clear sign Israel is preparing for another war against Hamas and the other Palestinian terror groups in Gaza, came after more than 400 rockets rained down on southern Israel since Monday afternoon.

Magen David Adom, the Israeli first aid organization and ambulance service, said 27 Israelis were injured by the massive missile attacks from Gaza while one resident of the coastal city of Ashkelon was killed by a direct hit on his house Monday night…

The victim appeared to be a Palestinian Arab, 48, from the Hebron area who was only found dead hours after police and the fire brigade arrived at the scene of the devastating blast which destroyed an entire building.

The lead up to what could be the third Gaza war began this weekend when a Palestinian terrorist from Gaza infiltrated an Israeli community in the vicinity of the security fence and set ablaze a greenhouse before being arrested by Israeli security forces.

The incident was followed by a shoot-out between an elite undercover unit of the IDF and members of Hamas’ military wing Izz-a-Din al-Qassam in the area of the Palestinian town of Khan Younis in Gaza on Sunday night.

The secret intelligence-gathering operation went awry when members of Izz-a-Din al-Qassam spotted the IDF unit and tried to stop the private car they were traveling with.

In the ensuing shoot-out, 7 Hamas terrorists were killed, among them Nour Barakeh, a Qassam Brigade commander who reportedly was in charge with Hamas’ terror tunnel project and served as the commander of Hamas’ regional battalion in Khan Younis..

The Israeli PM, who on Sunday said he would do his utmost to prevent a humanitarian disaster in Gaza and allowed Qatar to deliver $15 million in cash to the impoverished enclave, immediately started consultations with the top of the IDF after arriving in Israel.

Hamas, meanwhile, used the funeral of the 7 slain terrorists to ignite the Palestinian street and organized a mass demonstration against “the occupation”.”

An open letter to those who support a Palestinian state World anti-Semitism
By HOWARD KLINEBERG \ 09/24/2015 19:40 jpost.com
“…Now as you proceed on your chosen path towards your goal I had some questions regarding this future ‘Palestine state’.

What will it be like to live in?
Will it be democratic?
How will it treat religions other than Muslim?
What will its attitude be towards Israel?
How will it treat gays, lesbians and cross genders?
Will it allow building of places of worship that are not Mosques?
What will its policy be towards refugees?
Will it have a free press?
Which of its Arab ‘brother’ states will it model itself on?
Who will be its allies?
With whom will it trade?
What will it trade?

A result of all the research I have conducted, from everything I have read and all that I understand to be spoken by President Abbas and from Khaled Mashal this state will probably not be the nicest of places to live in. Additionally, from current evidence it certainly won’t be democratic as both the PA and Hamas are currently well past their constitutional sell by dates. Furthermore the PA have declared that their state will be a no-go area for Jews and that they will never recognize Israel as the Jewish homeland.

“Jerusalem has been a Jewish holy city since the days of King David . 3000 years ago.
At that time the Arabs were still pagans who used to worship idols such as Al Uzza, Al Lat and Al Mannat at the Kaaba. (Jahiliyya period)

In the year 638 CE the muslims captured Jerusalem from the Byzantines and built a mosque on the site of the Jewish holy Temple.

While Jews pray facing Jerusalem and the Temple mount , Muslims pray towards Mecca.
When Muslims pray in Jerusalem they point their behind to the Dome of the rock and the temple mount.

An Islamic holy site ?
Palestinians use the temple mount as a playground where they have picnics and play soccer.

Sary Nusseibeh , palestinian professor and the president of the Al Quds university had to go underground after admitting that the temple mount is a Jewish holy site.

Ibn Taymiyyah (1263-1328) , whose writings influenced the Wahhabi movement in arabia ruled that sacred islamic sites are to be found only in the Arabian Peninsula and that ” in Jerusalem, there is not a place one calls sacred , and the same holds true for the tombs of Hebron”

Jerusalem is mentioned in the Bible 667 times , while in the Quran : 0 times .

Julia Roberts on How the Movie “Wonder” Changed Her Life

“…You don’t have to be mean to hurt someone.

The idea for Wonder grew in R.J. after she and her younger son, then 3, were at an ice cream shop next to a child who had severe craniofacial differences — and her son cried in fear. Wanting to avoid hurting the little girl’s feelings, R.J. rushed to leave, spilling milkshakes and unintentionally creating a scene as she did so. “As I pushed the stroller away, I heard the mom say in as sweet and calm a voice as you can imagine, ‘Okay, guys, I think it’s time to go,’ ” R.J. says. “And that just got to me … what could I be teaching my children so they could understand how to respond better next time? I was disappointed in myself. I started writing Wonder that very night.”..

Nothing is stronger than gentleness.

“My mom gave me unconditional love,” says R.J. “I think that’s the one thing we can really do for our kids. Not to say that we have to be blind to their little quirks and faults, but it helps you in life.” Julia agrees, but adds, “I think some people confuse unconditional love with spoiling. None of my kids would think I have a problem with that distinction. I do love them unconditionally, and I try, when they do something wrong, to say, ‘This doesn’t change the amount of love in this house for you, but you’ve got to do your homework.’ Because I think that also makes a child feel safe.” The lesson is clear: Put kindness first, and the rest will follow…”

“…Although Auggie’s face and everyday experiences are imaginary, the lives of the some 600,000 individuals who have been diagnosed with a craniofacial condition in the United States are very much real — and 7-year-old Shane Vysocky and 13-year-old Emily Merrill are among them…

There’s beauty in everybody’
All in all, “Wonder” might shed light on how for children with craniofacial conditions and their families, social and emotional support have become an important part of medical treatment…”

Other Topics

Sal: While watching the movie, I was personally touched and started reflecting my own “personal challenges” growing-up as a kid. I was teased and bullied at times just because of being “different” in various ways. For example, I was “bullied” and teased because I look “oriental” . Peers would start pretending to do “karate” . I would get teased because of my “chubby cheeks” (one of the reasons to start “working out” and still to this day). I had a surgical line on my tummy and would be asked “what’s that?” (still being ask to this day!). I decided to do a blog , so I don’t have to constantly explain my appendicitis surgery that went “wrong” 😦 => Medical: Natural Alternatives to Appendicitis Removal? goodnewshealthandfitness.wordpress.com . I even started to search on ways on how to “hide” (e.g. would apply scar cream) or “get rid of this ” mark. Some people I met online explained to me just “own it” (as I watch the video above) as “scars” look “sexy” or it’s a reminder of how God got me through this “life challenge”.
