Much of the world’s conflict-resolution is done behind closed doors between various nations, but what if architects were thrown into the mix? Israeli firm Saya has set out to design a practical, architectural solution to world conflicts, from the Middle East to Cyprus and the US Mexican border.
The process starts with thinking of unexplored issues, including: territorial, educational, or environmental problems. After examining and analyzing the problem, the firm builds a design for a possible solution. Finally, they market their idea to interested clients, mainly policy makers “who have the power to set ideas into reality and influence discourse”, according to Greenfield-Gilat, in order to support the project.

Late afternoon in Eilat…
In November, 3 BMX bikers went to visit Israel. In 17 days, they got to see the whole country, swam in three seas, hung out with dolphins and even did some riding. This is their Israel discovery.
President Shimon Peres (C), former Sephardi chief rabbi Shlomo Amar (L) and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat (R) celebrate Mimouna festivities in Jerusalem.
Possible new treatment approach suggested by Arab-Israeli pediatrician’s discovery of how interrupted sleep speeds the spread of cancer.
Dr. Fahed Hakim laughs while admitting that he is remiss at taking his own advice about getting a good night’s sleep. As is the case with so many of us, his grueling work schedule, coupled with a full family life, takes its toll on his ability to get sufficient shut-eye.
But Hakim, a pediatrician and pediatric pulmonologist at the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, as well as a private practitioner in Nazareth, spends his waking hours efficiently and wisely. Sleep research he conducted during a two-year stint at the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital led to a discovery that is causing genuine excitement in the scientific community.

David Ben Gurion reading
the Declaration of Independence
of Israel on May 14, 1948 in Tel Aviv
The State of Israel from its very inception, from those few simple words of independence and even before, has always bent dangerouslyover backwards to have peaceful coexistence with the Arabs who live here in our Land. Therefore, peace, true peace, isn’t up to us. We’ve offered it on gilded platters forever. Nothing we do will bring peace to our Land.
It’s the aggressor, the Arabs, who terrorize us, murder, maim Jews and undermine our national security who must change totally for there to be peace, true peace.
The demands of the P.A.’s Abbas must be silenced!
Speaking to a group of Israeli journalists in Ramallah, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas laid out his three conditions for continuing talks with Israel: that Israel release the fourth batch of Palestinian security prisoners, including Israeli-Arabs, and that none of them be deported; that Israel freeze all settlement construction; and that the first three months of the extended talks deal with the borders of a future Palestinian state. (Jerusalem Post)
We should be shouting out the truth!
- Mahmoud Abbas does not want peace with the State of Israel!
- Mahmoud Abbas is in favor of Arab terrorist murderers!
Interviewer: “How can we deal with their criteria “bloodstained hands?”
Zionism Spells Democracy.
A ‘Palestinian Authority minister’ who condemned the Passover eve terror attack in which Baruch Mizrachi HYD (May God Avenge his blood) was murdered, is still being subjected to condemnation by other ‘Palestinians,’including his own family.
The report in the Israeli media about the minister’s supposed condemnation has triggered an unprecedented smear campaign against al-Habbash.
Within minutes, a photograph of the minister, dressed up as a Jewish rabbi, appeared on many Palestinian websites, making him the public’s number one enemy.
Al-Habbash’s attempts to deny that he had condemned the terrorist attack have fallen on deaf ears. Many Palestinians appealed to PA President Mahmoud Abbas to fire him and bring him to trial for causing damage to the Palestinian cause.
In a futile bid to contain the public outcry, the beleaguered al-Habbash told a Ramallah-based TV station, “I didn’t use the word condemn. I only said that the Palestinian leadership rejects all acts of violence.”
The minister’s family in the Gaza Strip rushed to issue a statement “disowning” him over his purported condemnation of the terrorist attack.
In the statement, the al-Habbash clan said, “We are proud of the heroic operation in Hebron and of every man and child fighting against the occupation. We disown him and anyone who embraces the despicable Israeli enemy.”
The family later issued another statement denying that it had disowned the minister.
The attacks on al-Habbash have come from Palestinians representing all walks of life, including the ruling Fatah faction in the West Bank.
Zakariya Zubeidi, a well-known former leader of Fatah’s terrorist group, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, called on al-Habbash to apologize to the Palestinians. “If your blood is like the blood of the Zionists, our blood is not,” Zubeidi declared.
What nice people! I’ll bet they’ll stop behaving this way once we give them a ‘state.’ /sarc
