getting ready to solve more problems

Several Latin American countries plan to recognize an independent Palestinian state in 2011. This worries the Israeli government. December 27, 2010: Israel - United Kingdom: London considering granting Palestinian delegates diplomatic status -- This could lead to a full-fledged recognition of Palestinian statehood as done already by Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador and Bolivia. The Foreign Office has already confirmed that it is considering upgrading the status of the Palestinian delegation, something that is worrying the Israeli government. Jerusalem – The UK government is considering upgrading the status of the Palestinian delegation to that of diplomatic mission, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported today. In Israel, officials fear this might lead to the unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood. If carried out, the step would follow that of various South American nations who have already granted recognition to an independent Palestinian state. The Palestinian delegat

UPDATE:  We have questions for our authorities. We are not scientists. However we can look things up. We looked up Yellow Fever. We see that this disease is nothing new. Let's just go with Wikipedia for now. 1) SYMPTOMS: Clinically, yellow fever presents in most cases with fever, nausea, and pain and it generally subsides after several days. In some patients, a toxic phase follows, in which liver damage with jaundice (giving the name of the disease) can occur and lead to death. ...The WHO estimates that yellow fever causes 200,000 illnesses and 30,000 deaths every year in unvaccinated populations;[4] around 90% of the infections occur in Africa.[5]...Yellow fever begins after an incubation period of three to six days.[8] Most cases only cause a mild infection with fever, headache, chills, back pain, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting.[9] In these cases the infection lasts only three to four days. 15% of cases enter a second, toxic phase of the disease with recurring fever,

Video from Flogging Dead Horses. "I just don't know why we have to come and beg people that we put in office to work for us, to work for us." ~ Sandra Hines Well, the trouble is, of course, that we DIDN'T put the people in office, and that's why they don't work for us. The people in office work for those who put them in office. They work for bankers. And that's why it SEEMS LIKE they work for bankers. Because they actually do! Remember that politics is a playpen, an elaborate social engineering experiment that keeps many people happily entertained and employed, while signifying nothing. Image from The Guardian The American people seem a little slow on the uptake with this situation. ^^^^^^^ For decades, Americans send a lot of foreign aid to certain countries. Israel and Egypt receive a lot of US foreign aid. We hear a lot about Israel. We don't hear so much about Egypt. In Egypt, 50 million people live below the poverty line. The tot

Come in, come in, ye kings, and kiss the feet of God.

 This is a very beautiful song. Merry Christmas to all of you. The Three Kings Words by Laurence Housman, music by Healey Willan "Who knocks tonight so late?" the weary porter said. Three kings stood at the gate, each with a crown on head. The serving man bowed down, the Inn was full, he knew. Said he, "In all this town is no fit place for you." A light in the manger lit; there lay the Mother meek. This place is fit. Here is the rest we seek. Come, come. They loosed their latchet strings, so stood they all unshod "Come in, come in, ye kings, and kiss the feet of God."

You may have heard of Jesus of Nazareth, also known as Jesus Christ or simply Jesus. Tonight billions of people in the world celebrate his birth. Jesus grew up in Nazareth. City of Nazareth Map - 1912 AD (city where Jesus grew up) PLEASE CLICK TO ENLARGE - NOTE THAT NAZARETH WAS A CHRISTIAN AND MUSLIM CITY IN 1912 The accompanying text reads: " And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene. "  (Matthew 2:23, KJV)      Jesus made Nazareth his permanent residence up to the age of about thirty when he officially began his ministry.      The city of Nazareth is a small town, situated in Galilee , west of Capernaum , and not far from Cana.  It was built partly in a valley and partly on the slope of a hill.  P opulated by mostly Gentiles, the city of Nazareth is not mentioned in the Old Testament.  Nazareth was considered of little significance, with a special contempt seemin

December 19, 2010: Authorities arrest members of alleged Egypt-based Israeli spy ring Egyptian security forces have arrested several people suspected of belonging to an Israeli spy network operating in Egypt. The alleged network reportedly consists of two fugitive Israeli officers and four Egyptian nationals. The State Security apparatus is currently conducting a highly secretive investigation of the suspects. Investigations have so far revealed that network members had succeeded in establishing two communications offices, one in Cairo and one in the UK, through which they recorded telephone calls made by prominent Egyptian government officials. The calls were then allegedly transferred to a communications office in Israel. Investigations have further revealed that one of the Israeli officers had managed to recruit a female Egyptian public relations director working at a tourism company to supply him with information, in return for money, about places frequented by certai
