Steven Sotloff, the Jewish freelance journalist who was decapitated by ISIS, sent us all a message leading up to Rosh Hashanah. In a letter smuggled out by a former cellmate in May, he penned his thoughts to his family. A cousin read his words to the 1,000 mourners who attended the memorial service in Pinecrest, Florida.
"Live your life to the fullest… Everyone has two lives. The second one begins when you realize you only have one."
Love Yehuda Lave
I would urge you to watch this through to the end. No matter what your party affiliation, it is tough to
do anything but agree. PLEASE WATCH.
Why Christians Support Israel
You must listen to this all the way

More on Christian support:
What a comparison:
The Palestinian Arabs of Gaza produce lethal missiles; dig tunnels to bring murderous terrorists into Israeli villages and kindergartens; produce suicide belts to murder and maim civilians, and bring back human sacrifices called human shields (in biblical times, the ancient Caananites used to sacrifice their children to the pagan god, Moloch).
The embattled and beleaguered Israelis, on the other hand, produce benefits for all humanity as shown below. Again, what a comparison:
In the 14th Sept 2014 edition of Israel's good news, the highlights
· Israeli brain surgeons cured a tremor patient whilst she played her violin.
· Israeli doctors transplant kidney into Gaza Arab boy.
· An Israeli company has developed the world's smallest GPS chip.
· A rare female baby white rhino was born in an Israeli safari park.
· Israeli factories are being converted to natural gas.
· Israeli security systems protect European nuclear reactors.
And there's much, much more:
Proton beam destroys tumors. Israel's Hil Applied Medical has patented lasers that perform safer, focused radiation cancer therapy using positively charged ions (protons). Hil's revolutionary reduced-size, economical lasers can bring proton therapy to many of the 300,000 US cancer patients and others who can benefit from it.
Laser treatment for nail fungus. (Thanks to Atid-EDI) Gentle Pro YAG lasers from Israel's Syneron Medical can now treat onychomycosis (nail fungus) – affecting 10-12% of the population and especially dangerous for diabetics. Laser heat is safer than oral alternatives and more effective than topical treatments (i.e. creams). Syneron has also developed a laser that can remove tattoos.
Acne treatment knocks spots off alternatives. As Israel's Foamix prepares to go public, enter Phase III trials and get FDA approval, the latest results of its acne treatment are impressive; 72% reduction in pimples for 150 patients with moderate to severe acne during the 12-week treatment period; and zero side effects.
Good trial results for new asthma treatment. Israel's Teva reported that Phase III trial results for its asthma treatment reslizumab reduced the frequency of attacks by 50 – 60% compared to placebo.
Asthmatics need to check Vitamin D levels. A study of 21,000 Israeli asthmatics showed that those with a Vitamin D deficiency were 25 percent more likely to have an asthmatic attack than those with normal levels. Vitamin D is known to play a role in regulating the immune system.
Israeli agro-tech is a game-changer for Virginia. Ralph Robbins, executive director of the Virginia Israel Advisory Board (VIAB) has developed the model "Ecosystem for Success" in order to promote Israeli companies that can bring benefits to the agriculture of the US State of Virginia.
Israel celebrates "International Bat Night. Israel hosts and protects 33 species of bat – they are important pollinators and prey on insects, especially mosquitoes. Bat Night has taken place every year since 1997 in more than 30 countries. Lectures and tours take place across Israel.
Israel's sea turtles are hatching. Some 50 days after mother turtles laid their eggs in Israeli beaches, newborn sea turtles are starting to make their way "home," to the sea. The Israel Nature and Parks Authority tries to ensure that there are clear paths to the sea for the newly hatched sea turtles.
IsraAid helps clear up after Washington wildfire. (Thanks to Nevet – www.broaderview.org) Despite the war back home, workers from the Israel Forum for International Humanitarian Aid (IsraAid), spent two weeks helping clean up after the destruction from the single biggest wildfire in Washington State's history.
SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY:
Speech analysis can profile personality. Ben Gurion University researchers have developed a new computer-based personality profiling methodology that can decipher the actual feelings of an individual. When used to analyze speeches of Presidents Obama and Putin it produced some interesting assessments.
Samsung enhances HD TVs using Israeli technology. Samsung has selected the Adaptive Video Accelerator (AVA) from Israel's Giraffic to provide Internet video streaming for its smart High Definition TVs. Giraffic's AVA software virtually eliminates the need for re-buffering, to provide reliable, high quality, video download.
Backup your smartphone while it's re-charging. (Thanks to Atid-EDI) Don't worry if you lose or break your smartphone. With bleep-Smart from Israeli start-up Musers, your data is backed up every time you charge the phone's battery. Contacts, history, pictures, videos, WhatsApp – it's all saved to a secure memory stick.
What a comparison indeed, and tell that to the odious BDS scoundrels.
