The Water-Gen machine, which can produce between 15 and 20 liters of drinking water per day, can be a boon for regions lacking portable drinking water, Dershowitz noted.

“There is no weapon more powerful in the fight against BDS than for Israel to develop technologies that the world cannot live without,” he added. “You cannot boycott products that you can’t live without.”

During the presentation at a Washington, DC convention center, AIPAC National Managing Director Elliot Brandt recalled Zionist leader Theodor Herzl’s dreams of Israeli innovation.

The annual AIPAC Policy Conference ends Tuesday.

    “potable” not “portable”!

    Interesting, many Christians following the literal writing in Revelations; “those who bless Israel will be blessed; those who curse Israel will be cursed.” I wonder if they realize that Theodor Hertzl the founder of Israel, the nation, was an atheist; and that contemporary Israel is a political entity, not a spiritual one. Most Israelis do not acknowledge Jesus as their Messiah.

      It doesn’t matter if Theodor Hertzl is an atheist, in Judaism his good works count. There are many observant Jews, Christians, and other religions as well as atheists. All the citizens in Israel that work for the better of the world, will have a place in the future of the heavenly kingdom. And of course the Jews do not acknowledge Jesus as a messiah. We are Jews. We worship none except G-d.

  • The World at large has for thousands of years wrongfully and maliciously persecuted the Jews, confiscated and stole their assets including personal valuables, homes and Real Estate property. The world at large will try and push us around if we let them. It is time to put an end to such biased unjustified and deliberate persecution.

    All the distortions of history up to and including modern day, by biased nations relying upon deceptive, fictitious make-believe facts and wishful beliefs, must not be tolerated any more. While most of the biased world continues to unjustly assail Israel; the nation of Israel contributes to the world a substantial amount of advancement and technology in all fields, including medicine, energy, water desalination, IT, and much more.

    Today the Jewish State of Israel has the man-power and the resources to defend itself against most world powers, with the help of the almighty. Thus, it is time for us Jews to become unified and stand up for ourselves as was done during the days of Moses, King David and King Solomon.

    We are supposed to be “a stubborn nation” (Am Kshey Oref). Let us utilize our “stubborn” resolve with a strong backbone steeled with our unwavering faith. If we stand our ground without capitulations, we might encounter some obstacles and suffer some set-backs. But in the long run we will be stronger and the world at large will respect us more.

    We must overcome the “Diaspora victim mentality” we have too easily accepted over thousands of years.
    It is time for all Jews worldwide to raise our heads, and steel our resolve as a proud nation with proud people with our ancestral Jewish code and tradition.
