Would you believe that I’m a pretty positive guy?
No, really. I’m a complete optimist – absolutely, positively convinced that it will all work out. I’m just not all that cracked up about the messy part right before the end, which is why I created a second website called OmegaShock.
I mean, I’ve got God on my side. How about you?
Anyway, I thought that I’d show a bit of that positiveness, by talking a bit about some of the good stuff that Israel does – good stuff that no one outside of Israel hears about. You can get it, all of it, from a weekly blog post here:
I mean, Israel is an awesome place, and there is no place that I would rather be. And, I also happen to know that Israel is God’s favorite place on the planet.
Here’s a secret: If God loves something, make sure that you love it, too.
Anyway, here’s a positive bit of news from Good News from Israel:
Look how Israel treats the Palestinian Arabs
Contrary to what you may have been told, Israel is not conducting ethnic cleansing or the genocidal destruction of the Palestinian Arabs in Judea and Samaria. How can this be proved? Just look at the population statistics for the number of Arabs in the Territories (2.4 million). Even allowing for claims of PA double-counting, this still represents at least a two-fold increase in the numbers of Arabs in 1967. So if Israel was trying to eliminate these Arabs, they’re doing a pretty poor job of it. In any case, the Palestinian Authority rules in the West Bank Territories, and the Hamas terrorist organization runs Gaza.
So where does Israel really get involved? Since July 2010 I’ve been collecting individual items of news where Israel’s path crosses with that of the Palestinian Arabs. There were plenty of reports of violence, but I was astonished to discover over 60 positive news stories that never appeared anywhere except in the Israeli press. In this issue, I have just selected the areas that Israel has helped the Palestinian Arabs in providing Medical assistance.

No matter how gloomy and awful things get, there’s always good news about a place that God cares about.
Go. Be positive!
