What Is Happening On Planet Earth?

February 28, 2010

A devastating magnitude-8.8 earthquake struck Chile early Saturday morning, shattering buildings and bridges, killing at least 700 people and setting off a tsunami that threatened every nation around the Pacific Ocean — roughly a quarter of the globe.

What is happening on planet Earth?

Last November, governmental representatives from 170 countries went to Copenhagen for the “Climate Gate Conference”. Remember?

They met to discuss Global Warming, the theory that mankind’s liberation of “greenhouse” gases—such as carbon dioxide—is leading to a relentless, unprecedented, and ultimately catastrophic warming of the entire planet. They met there seeking to prevent global warming and climate changes with new laws about carbon emission.

There is no doubt that mankind has liberated huge quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere over the past two centuries. But mankind did not “create” this carbon dioxide out of nothing. It was released by the burning of “fossil fuels”, created by the Earth from the remains of plants and animals (who themselves ultimately obtained their nutrition from those plants).

Where do you think those plants got their energy and carbon dioxide from? – They absorbed the radiant energy of the Sun, and breathed in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, as plants continue to do today. In other words, when we burn fossil fuels, we are utilizing a small part of the solar energy that had been collected and stored by plants over millions of years, and in the process we are liberating into the atmosphere the carbon dioxide that those plants had absorbed from the atmosphere in the first place.

We all know by now that there is no such thing as global warming. The recent snow storms across America and Europe bear witness that it has been getting colder.

Indeed, strange things are happening in both outer and inner space. The Earth’s magnetic field has been weakening. Scientists say that this decrease actually began about 2,000 years ago, but the rate of decrease suddenly became much more rapid 500 years ago. However, in the last 20 years or so, the magnetic field has become erratic. – I find this very significant. Just think of biblical events that took place during that time.

The decline in the magnetic field is also opening the Earth’s upper atmosphere to intense charged-particle radiation, according to scientists.

The Sun floods the planets of the solar system with heat, light, UV radiation and electrically charged particles. The Sun itself has a magnetic field, and that magnetic field creates an “egg” around the solar system that is known as the heliosphere. The heliosphere is shaped like a teardrop, with the long, thin end of the drop pointing away from the direction in which we’re travelling.  – Any changes that occur in or on the Sun will eventually affect every person alive.

According to NASA, the Sun is beginning another 11- year cycle of activity. The Sun flips its magnetic poles every 11 years. Considering that the Sun is to blame for some unfavorable climate changes on the Earth, the coming decade could spell more trouble for our planet.

Mankind can’t control the changes in our solar system. G-D himself is shaping our way of life on this planet; and the changes we are now seeing with our Sun, the solar system and the Earth’s magnetic field may be the very things that transform our world as we know it into something new when the Messiah arrives.

We truly live in very interesting times!

Israel’s Disproportionate Response

January 19, 2010

Many countries and world leaders have accused Israel of responding disproportionately to aggression from Hizballah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

However, it is time that the world press and media speak of another disproportionate response from Israel.

The terrible disastrous earthquake in Haiti has generated responses from many nations. The US has sent supplies and personnel, Britain sent 64 firemen and 8 volunteers, France sent troops for Search and Rescue. Many large and wealthy nations of the world sent money. The Arab and Moslem world nothing.

Israel, a nation of 7.5 million people has sent a team of 220 people that include Medical personnel and will establish the largest field hospital in Haiti, treating up to 5000 people a day, an experienced Search and Rescue team and medical supplies. As in previous earthquake disasters, such as in Gujarat India in 2001 and in Turkey, in the bombings in Kenya, Israel has been one of the most generous givers of aid and assistance

Turkey seems to have forgotten this help as its extreme Moslem Government is cozying up to Iran.

Judge Goldstone, where are you now? Eating your heart out and hanging your head down in shame I hope.

The favorite occupation in the UN is Israel bashing. More resolutions have been passed condemning Israel than all the so called democratic nations such as Sudan, China, Russia and others for their crimes against their minorities.

I think it is time that the world should know about Israel’s disproportionate response.

In the midst of the overwhelming death and destruction that is Haiti right now, there are Israelis who have come to save lives and offer succor.

On Friday, El Al and IDF planes came into Haiti, carrying 250 medical personnel — doctors, nurses, lab and x-ray technicians and even a psychiatrist — and supplies for a mobile hospital, including a pharmacy, a surgical unit, and a maternity ward. A young Haitian mother who was the first to deliver in this ward, early this morning, named her baby Israel.

You can see footage of an IDF rescue team at work in Haiti here:

Members of ZAKA, the Israeli ultra-Orthodox volunteer rescue organization, were on the scene as well. Yesterday, on Shabbat, they labored, digging in the rubble of a collapsed multi-story university building, where cries were heard. After hours of effort, they succeeded in pulling eight students from that rubble, alive.

These ZAKA members then took time, in the midst of the chaos, to wrap themselves in their tallitot (prayer shawls) and recite their Shabbat prayers. Undoubtedly most if not all of the Haitians on the scene had never seen such a sight.

When the men had finished praying, a crowd of people gathered around them and kissed their tallitot.

According to one report, head of the ZAKA mission, Mati Goldstein said:

“With all the hell going on outside, even when things get bad Judaism says we must take a deep breath and go on to save more people.

“We did everything to save lives, despite Shabbat. People asked, ‘Why are you here? There are no Jews here’, but we are here because the Torah orders us to save lives.”

At one point, when things were very grim, Goldstein reported that one mission member started to sing, Heveinu Shalom Aleichem (We bring peace to you.) “I had tears in my eyes,” he said.

The ZAKA mission will be staying in Haiti a couple more days, even though beyond a certain point it is highly unlikely that anyone else will be found alive under the rubble.

What is exceedingly important to the mission is making their Israeli identity very clear. And so, in this regard, you can help Israel by sharing this broadly and letting the world know what we are all about.

I leave off writing here (and save other news for another day), so this can be circulated, sharing simply this important news.
