Boycott Israel

by The daily Sport Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2006 at 2:35 PM

Keys for an effective boycott of Israel

I understand that you are ticked off at Israel, and in lovewith the Palestinians. That's fine with me, as long as you have truly weighedup all the facts.

So, you want to boycott Israel? If you are doing it - do it properly.

Let me help you.

Check all your medications. Make sure that you do not have tablets,drops, lotions, etc., made by Abic or Teva. It may mean that you will suffer from colds and flu this winter but, hey, that's a small price for you to pay in your campaign against Israel, isn't it?

While we are on the subject of your Israeli boycott, and the medical contributions to the world made by Israeli doctors and scientists, how about telling your pals to boycott the following.....

An Israeli company has developed a simple blood test that distinguishes between mild and more severe cases of Multiple Sclerosis. So, if you

know anyone suffering from MS, tell them to ignore the Israeli patent that may, more accurately, diagnose their symptom.

An Israeli-made device helps restore the use of paralyzed hands. This device electrically stimulates the hand muscles, providing hope to

millions of stroke sufferers and victims of spinal injuries. If you wish to remove this hope of a better quality of life to these people, go ahead and boycott Israel.

Young children with breathing problems will soon be sleeping more soundly, thanks to a new Israeli device called the Child Hood. This innovation

replaces the inhalation mask with an improved drug delivery system that

provides relief for child and parent. Please tell anxious mothers that they shouldn't use this device because of your passionate cause.

These are just a few examples of how people have benefited medically from

the Israeli know-how you wish to block. Boycotts often affect research. A

new research center in Israel hopes to throw light

on brain disorders such as depression and Alzheimer's disease. The

Joseph Sangol Neuroscience Center in the Sheba Medical Center at Tel HaShomer Hospital,

aims to bring thousands of scientists and doctors to focus on brain


A researcher at Israel's Ben Gurion University has succeeded in

creating human monoclonal antibodies which can neutralize the highly

contagious smallpox virus without inducing the dangerous side effects of the existing vaccine.

Two Israelis received the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Doctors

Ciechanover and Hershko's research and discovery of one of the human

cells most important cyclical processes will lead the way to DNA repair,

control of newly produced proteins, and immune defense systems.

The Movement Disorder Surgery program at Israel's Hadassah Medical Center

has successfully eliminated the physical manifestations of Parkinson's

disease in a select group of patients with a deep brain stimulation

technique. For women who undergo hysterectomies each year for the

treatment of uterine fibroids, the development in Israel of

the Ex Ablate 2000 System is a welcome

breakthrough, offering a noninvasive alternative to surgery.

Israel is developing a nose drop that will provide a five year flu

vaccine. These are just a few of the projects that you can help stop with

your Israeli boycott.

But let's not get too obsessed with my ducal research, there are other

ways you can make a personal sacrifice with your anti-Israel boycott.

Most of Windows operating systems were developed by

Microsoft-Israel. So, set a personal example. Throw away your computer!

Computers should have a sign attached saying Israel Inside. The

Pentium NMX Chip technology was designed at Intel in Israel. Both the Pentium 4

microprocessor and the Centrum processor were entirely designed,

developed, and produced in Israel. Voice mail technology was developed in Israel.

The technology for the AOL Instant Messenger ICQ was developed in 1996 in

Israel by four young Israelis.

Both Microsoft and Cisco built their only R. & D. facilities outside the US in Israel.

So, due to your complete boycott of anything Israeli, you now have

poor health and no computer.

But your bad news does not end there. Get rid of your cellular phone. Cell phone technology was also developed in Israel by MOTOROLA which

has its biggest development center in Israel. Most of the latest technology in your mobile phone was developed by Israeli scientists.
