  1. GAZA – Israeli missiles flatten ‘Hamas intelligence centre

    Israeli jets and missiles destroyed al-Amal hotel – which Israel claims houses Hamas’s main internal security building – in Gaza City on Monday night.

    Eight people were reportedly injured in the bombing.

    In a statement, the Israeli Defence Force said the hotel contained Hamas military intelligence operations and had been used to spy on Israel.

    The multi-storey building was reportedly in a populated area in the northern Gaza Strip, near a school.

    Images of the bombing were filmed in the Western Sands neighbourhood and Omar al-Mukhtar street in the city’s east.

    The employees were believed to have evacuated the building in advance after receiving phoned-in warnings from the Israeli military.

    • Israel’s Demographic Miracle

      Birthrates are falling across the world, especially in developed nations—except in one. How did mainstream, middle-class Israelis start having children again, and what does it mean?


      Stats show Israel has highest fertility rate in the West

      Average number of children per mother in Israel stands at 3.11 in 2016, the highest of all OECD countries, latest Central Bureau of Statistics data shows; Predominantly-Haredi Modi’in Illit has highest average of children with 7.59, whereas Muslim women have highest fertility rate.


      • I can’t find the picture.
        It was a pair of dusty soldiers, girl and boy, walking away after battle into the sunset, holding hands.
        The caption: How do Zionists multiply?

        • I hope Hungary can learn from Israel. They’re trying to increase birth rates–and with success I believe–but there needs to be alot more lovin’!

          • Hungary has had Israeli teams advising them for a few years. Everything from economic policy to medical issues. It’s a comprehensive program, tailored to specific domestic conditions.

            My college roommate is a Japanese mathematician. She works in a demography consultancy there. Not only fertility rate, but quality of life improvements for the extremely elderly. Prevention of age-related deterioration in both physical and social dimensions.

            Strange new world of social engineering: at least this one’s emphatically pro-life!

            Meanwhile…Western Europe is intensifying euthanasia initiatives.

          • Front and top of brain, too!

            Rabbis used to worry about that. Not so much anymore. ‘Be fruitful and multiply’: why fight that first commandment?

            Less socialism, more kids born to two-parent families. At last post-Holocaust, Israel has grandmas and grandpas, extended families that are a real treat.

    Israel World’s 11th Happiest Country Ahead of US, UK, France, Germany

    The World Happiness Report is a measure of happiness that’s published annually by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network and the Earth Institute at Columbia University. Leading experts in economics, psychology, survey analysis, and national statistics, to name a few, describe how measurements of well-being can be used effectively to assess the progress of nations.

    The 2016 happiness index ranks the Jewish State in 11th place, following Denmark, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Canada, Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, and Sweden.

      Did the UN just admit that Israel is among the happiest places on Earth?

      …Israel? A hated democracy in the world’s most violent neighborhood? A society where boys and girls are drafted into the army at eighteen and men do military reserve duty well into their forties? Where taxes are higher and salaries far lower than in dozen countries that rank lower on the happiness scale? A nation with a history so somber that it three separate national days of mourning?

      Yep, that’s the one.

      When the UN happiness report was published it shocked Israel’s post-Zionist intelligentsia, for whom it is doctrine that Israel is a miserable place that gets worse by the day. But elite’s effort to debunk the UN finding ran into a flurry of other Happiness Day reports.…

      …These statistics are interesting because they paint a picture of life in Israel that is very different from the usual portrayal in the international media. But they are crucial for understanding an essential truth about the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

      [Thomas Friedman, nyt, 2006, wrote] “The Israelis will always win, and the Palestinians will always make sure they never enjoy it.”

      This is a good aphorism. It represents the conventional thinking of the Israeli intelligentsia and progressive journalists and politicians (almost the only people foreign correspondents ever meet). It also correctly reflects Palestinian fantasy which, unhappily, is the basis for Palestinian policy.

      For most of the past century, the Arabs of Palestine have believed that the Jewish state was an artificial entity, a concoction of Europeans who would, if sufficiently pressured, go back where they belonged.

      That led to a decades long campaign of terrorism, propaganda warfare, efforts at international demonization, anti-Israel UN resolution, rocket attacks, bogus peace offers, threats about the demographic power of “the Palestinian womb” (one of Yassir Arafat’s favorites), moral posturing on the evils of occupation and then more terror.…

      What the Palestinians do not understand is this is not going to work. In fact, it is a counterproductive waste of time.

      Year by year, Israel gets bigger, stronger, richer, more technologically advanced and better accepted by the countries that matter (including regional Sunni regimes in Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia that were once patrons of Palestinian “resistance”).

      And Israelis get happier.

      Anyone who has been to Israel in the last fifteen years knows this. Israel is a country with a vibrant Hebrew cultural scene, great restaurants and nightlife, abundant tourism (it is a destination for both Evangelical pilgrims and LGBT visitors), world class universities, honest courts, omnipresent internet connection, newly discovered oil reserves, plentiful water resources (thanks to Israeli techniques of desalination), a booming high tech sector, low unemployment, steady immigration, increasing a high Jewish birth rate, bloodless elections and plain old daily life.

      The Palestinians need to internalize this. So do American policy-makers and anyone else banking on life becoming so intolerable that Israel gives up on itself. With apologies to Tom Friedman, here is Rule Number 1: Israel is very good at turning bitter Palestinian lemons into sweet, satisfying lemonade.

      A comment: “Satan would be happier than any European country right now.”
