Hatikva-The National Anthem of ISRAEL
We support the country of Israel and have been wanting to write this article about Israel and the way this country is governed. The reality is, Israel is established and is not going to disappear or submit to pressure to relinquish land to Palestinians at any point in the near future. We do support a Palestinian State. While we support the people of Israel, we do not agree with every facet of the Israeli government. There are many concepts that work very well in Israel and we think Western countries should consider adopting, and we will write more about Israel sometime soon.
Israel is a constitutional Republic

" Why is the Israeli army so powerful? What are the key elements explaining such a military success? Today we are going to tell you the 5 key facts that explain this".
Since its early days as a fledgling State, the Israel Defence Force was given authority to enlist any citizen from 18 years of age. Under their law, both men and women had to serve for a minimum period. Men - 3 years and 2 years for women. There are a number of reasons Israeli citizens can be exempt from service which include medical problems, religious study and criminal records to name a few. Today, many citizens choose to stay after their initial conscription and the military becomes their career and livelihood.
Upon evaluation, each person is given a medical profile which determines where they will serve. The highest grade profiles are placed in one of five infantry brigades, field, and combat intelligence units or can serve as combat engineers. Other roles include artillery, military and border police, Aman, logistics corps, adjutant Corps and more.
Women in the Army
Israel is one of the few countries that has mandatory conscription for women into their armed forces. While it is still mandatory, there are more reasons for an exemption available to women including religious conscience, pregnancy, marriage and motherhood.
Currently, 65% of women serve in the army, 25% choose to opt out on religious groups and the remaining 10% are exempted due to marriage and family or physical/emotional reasons.

Jews Have Right to Self-Determination
Gordon Robertson looks at Israel's remarkable agricultural innovation, with special focus on the role of the kibbutz in Israel's agricultural success, growing crops and orchards in desert, rocky land and swamps with hard work and ingenuity.
Because more than half of Israel is desert, the lack of clean water is a life-or-death issue. Gordon Robertson examines several of the ways that Israel conserves water, including desalination, drip irrigation and recycling.
How do you push back centuries of desertification? Through planting trees in the desert, of course! Learn how KKL-JNF helps trees survive in the desert. Find out more about 'Green Sunday', a JNF Australia initiative that encourages Jewish Australian youth to get involved in planting a green belt around Beer Sheva. http://www.kkl.org.il/eng/about-kkl-j...
Goats & sheep are part of the cause of desertification. The shape of their mouth lets them nibble exposed plant stems down to the bare soil, and it can not recover and dies. Need to put an end to free-roaming sheep/goats, and enforce managed rotational grazing with permanent fencing, so protected fenced plants have time to recover after grazing.
If left unchecked, the sheep will eat every little sapling that ever tried to sprout.
A problem with mass plantings everywhere is that only one or a very few different types of trees are planted. When disease hits, most of the trees are lost in that kind of tree. Plantings should be of every sort of tree feasible in any given area where they can grow. Through diversity of trees, wildlife does much better. Where only one or a few kinds of trees are planted, food sources for birds and other wildlife often do not do well. I don't know about what kind of trees are being planted here, but the pictures all looked the same. I will look it up and see what it is from the comments.
When the grand turk of Turkey realized rebels were running into the forests to hide, he ordered a tax on every non-food producing tree. All across the empire, trees were burned off. the Fertile Crescent had good grazing for two years, then the rains stopped. When the Jews came home to Israel, they realized for the first time why Moses was told, when you get to your new land, plant trees. Before the Turk, the forests were so thick, a man had to walk sideways at times to get between them. You're bringing back the trees, something sacred to God. Be forever blessed for that. You walk in beauty.

Prevention of Infiltration Law
This controversial law was originally enacted in 1954 with the express purpose to prevent the entry of Palestinian refugees and sympathizers into Israel due to fear of terrorism.
In 2013 the law was amended due to huge increases in the number of illegal immigrants ( infiltrators ) coming in from Africa. These amendments included limitations on the amount of time an infiltrator could be detained as well as increasing the number of anti-infiltration enforcement officers. Israel also has an ingenious scheme where they will compensate detainees if they agree to go home.
The new amendments enable the Israeli government to give jail time to migrants on temporary visas for any criminal activity regardless of its severity as a way of ensuring a zero tolerance attitude of African attitudes towards women and rape.
All detainees are put through an identification process and medical examination. Those who file for asylum are given temporary visas allowing them to remain in detention or in the Israel community for up to 3 years. Anyone who aids migrants via smuggling, providing shelter or giving them with weapons are also up for lengthy harsh sentences. People from Sudan and Eritrea are under no circumstances allowed to file for asylum. People from these nations are given options of cash and a ticket home, or to be taken to a detention center.
In 2015, 45,000 Eritrean and Sudanese refugee were sent letters informing them they had 30 days to accept one of 3 options:
• Israel’s offer of $3,500 in cash and a one-way ticket home
• A one-way ticket to an unnamed third country in Africa
• Incarceration at Saharonim detention center
Only 190 asylum seekers have been granted refugee status in Israel since it signed the 1951 Convention in 1954.
Since building a barrier between the Egypt and Israel border, the number of people seeking to enter Israel illegally has significantly decreased.
It should also be noted that a number of countries, including India and the United States, has sent officials over to Israel to review and learn about their successful barrier technology.

Some Jews promote third world invaders into Europe
Ellie SearIt was reported at the beginning of April on RT news that the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu had sent letters to half of the black population saying either go to Africa or go to jail. After a quick re-think he decided he could create more mayhem by dumping them on to white countries. He then decided that they should be sent to Canada, Italy and Germany and got the United Nations to support his "RACIST" decision. Why can't Europeans make the decision to make all unemployed blacks return to Africa? This is common sense considering the rising number of street killings and our unacceptable drug problem.
