Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Top PA Minister Donates Big Money to Israeli Hospital

Israel gives medical help to its enemies. One heart won, possibly.

PA Official Meets with Staff of Rambam Hospital

A top official of the Palestinian Authority has donated an unspecified amount of money – described only as "tens of thousands of shekels" – to Rambam Hospital in Haifa. He was long treated there for cancer, saw the many children and adults from Gaza receiving similar treatment there, and decided that he wanted to share in the kindness.
"Medicine is a bridge between people," said the man, who refused to have his photograph publicized and who is known only as M.
Some 1,200 residents of Hamas-run Gaza and of the Fatah-run Palestinian Authority receive medical treatment in Rambam Hospital each year. Among them this year was M., a man in his 40's, who was diagnosed with a malignant growth in an unspecified area of his body. He received several rounds of treatment in Rambam, and credits the hospital staff with saving his life.
Upon the conclusion of his treatments, he made one last trip to the hospital, where, in a small ceremony with doctors and staff members, he bestowed his gift. The funds will be used to establish a recovery room for children cancer patients.
"When I arrived in Rambam," said M., "I saw a medical staff giving devoted care to many patients – but I also saw the suffering of the children among the patients. I saw children who are Palestinian [Authority], Israeli, Syrian and from other countries being treated in Rambam, and who need all the help they can get. I decided to donate towards this end as an act of humanity and of solidarity."
He said that both Israelis and Arabs "suffer from violence, and I am striving for a situation in which we can all contribute towards peace and health."

U.S. Finally Gets Tough on UN Anti-Israel Bias

The new U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, openly rebuked the Human Rights Council for their outrageous obsession with Israel, ignoring deplorable violations from Syria, Eritrea, Venezuela, and the Congo, not to mention North Korea and Cuba. Here's how one journalist described her impact so far (Kim Sengupta, Independent UK): "...her performance at the Security Council debate was meticulously prepared. Other national delegates were impressed, and even the Russians, at the receiving end of her tongue-lashing, were privately acknowledging that they will be facing someone at the UN from now on who they cannot take lightly." A little light dispels a great deal of darkness. Ambassador Haley's rising star is shining new light that may reach far beyond the walls of the U.N. in New York.

Nikki Haley warns US may pull out of UN Human Rights Council over 'anti-Israel bias'

The US envoy to the UN said the council is stacked with opponents to Israel

US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the US is "reviewing its participation" in the Human Rights Council over what said is the group's "chronic anti-Israel bias".
The Geneva-based Council made up of 47 member countries is beginning a three-week session and Ms Haley said the US “sees some areas for significant strengthening” in the group. 
The council's critical stance of Israel has long been a contentious issue for the US, Israel's main ally. Ms Haley has said in the past that Israel is the “only country permanently on the body’s calendar”.

The council's members have taken a strong position against Israel's continued occupation of territory seized in the 1967 Six-Day War, its treatment of Palestinians, and its building of Jewish settlements.

Most countries in the UN system and international bodies consider the settlements illegal since they are built in areas Palestinians consider part of an eventual independent state. 
Ms Haley used Venezuela's alleged human rights violations as an example of anti-Israel bias. She noted the council pursued five resolutions against Israel in its March session but none against the government of President Nicolas Maduro. 
“If Venezuela cannot [address human rights issues], it should voluntarily step down from its seat on the Human Rights Council until it can get its own house in order. Being a member of this council is a privilege, and no country who is a human rights violator should be allowed a seat at the table," she said.
Ms Haley is set to host a side event in Geneva specifically regarding the South American nation, where at least 65 people have died and hundreds have been injured in continued anti-government protests since the end of March. 
Venezuela responded to Ms Haley's comment, saying the forum “needs to be free of politicisation and double standards”.

The US ambassador also called on the council to vote on resolutions against Syria, Eritrea, Belarus, Ukraine and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Some activists urged Washington to focus on abuses at home. “It's hard to take Ambassador Haley seriously on US support for human rights in light of Trump administration actions like the Muslim ban and immigration crackdowns," Jamil Dakwar, director of the human rights program at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), told Reuters. 
The US “must get its own house in order and make human rights at home a priority – then, it can begin to credibly demand the same of other countries abroad”.
Despite remaining allies, former President Obama had an icy relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
In fact, in late December 2016 during the waning moments of the Obama administration, the UN Security Council passed a resolution condemning Israel's settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Then-UN ambassador Samantha Power chose not to veto the resolution as was normal procedure for the US. 
Comparatively, Donald Trump and Mr Netanyahu seem to have a far friendlier relationship according to foreign policy experts. The Israeli leader recently hosted the US President during Mr Trump's first foreign trip.

Saudis Turn on Hamas: "Worse Than ISIS."

It seems all of a sudden the Saudis woke up. They say Hamas is brutal to its citizens and using Saudi money to build terror tunnels. This echoes the recent complaints of Norway and Denmark that their donations to the PLO are fueling terror and not peace. But the aim of Hamas and the PLO is to destroy Israel. So are they "militants" as the media describe them, or perhaps they are evil doers? Do they have a real cause, or they just opposers of G-d and the Jewish people? Interestingly, Hamas in Hebrew means violence.

"Hamas uses the Palestinians in Gaza as human shields," Okaz, popular Saudi newspaper



"Islamic State kills quickly, whereas Hamas are murdering slowly," wrote the author in one of the most critical articles ever seen in an Arab country against Hamas.

You might have to pinch yourself to believe a Saudi Arabian newspaper's criticism of Gaza-based terrorist organization Hamas. The Israeli Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) could just copy and paste the article on their Arabic-speaking website.

In an exceedingly stinging criticism, Saudi newspaper Okaz wrote on Friday that "Hamas' actions are a double betrayal on the issue of Palestine, with the organization investing $120 million in the last three years in intensive tunnel construction."

According to the newspaper, Hamas has taken millions of dollars from Saudia Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in order to dig tunnels and hold hostage two million Palestinians.

"Hamas' should have quickly put right the ongoing disaster in the Gaza Strip, instead of criticizing statements made by the Saudi foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir," who recently demanded that Qatar sever its links with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

According to the newspaper, Hamas is a terrorist organization whose crimes exceed those of the Islamic State. "Islamic State kills quickly, whereas Hamas are murdering slowly," wrote the author in one of the most critical articles ever seen in an Arab country against Hamas.

"Hamas allocates millions of Saudi and UAE dollars in order to support Iranian-orchestrated terror."

The leading Saudi newspaper drew parallels between the Islamic State and those of Hamas, stating that "there is no difference between them."

The newspaper called for immediate Arab intervention in order to prevent Hamas' exploitation of Gaza's citizens and even "to save their lives."

"Hamas uses all the aid that the Palestinians receive to support their interests, it digs tunnels beneath schools, houses and hospitals and thereby poses a danger to the lives of Palestinian civilians."

"Hamas uses the Palestinians in Gaza as human shields," concluded the article. "The secret is out: Hamas is a double agent of Doha and Tel Aviv."
