Prime Minister Netanyahu's 2016 Holiday Greetings

Introducing "Joy Bear"
The Season of LIGHT

We at Jerusalem Vistas/Israel Vision and Still Small Voice send to YOU our dear frends worldwide our very best wishes for Christmas, Chanukah and all through 2017.

As you watch the message below, you may notice that our new "Rescue" pup and mascot is making an appearance. His name was Joya. Someone told us that it meant "Searcher" in Arabic.

Now that he has settled in, we have discovered that his favourite activities are sleeping next to the wood stove and getting hugs. As a result, the grandchildren have renamed him "Joy Bear"

Join us in the video below, as Meridel gives personal greetings to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a reception held at the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem. She was able to mention that the lovely life size oil painting portraits of the presidents and prime ministers which hang in the entrance way to the cabinet room, were painted by renowned Canadian artist, Joy Caros Rawlings of Vancouver, BC, Canada and are a gift to the country. PM Netanyahu's response to  Meridel was the warm Israeli expression, "Kol Ha Kavod"~meaning in English "Congratulations"!

These are days of unprecedented attacks on Israel by the United Nations. They continue to castigate Israel with their lopsided resolutions with not even a single  mention of of the Russian backed genocide of women and children in Aleppo by Assad's regime propped up by Iran.  The Bible says, "Woe unto those who call good evil and evil good."  The Prime Minister clearly refers to this in his Christmas Message, at the end of the video. Please pray for him. Thanks.

We Know that the LIGHT Will Always Triumph Over Darkness.

In HIS love,
Jay and Meridel and Team

Dr. Aryeh Eldad: A War Between Civilization and Barbarism

In an article published by Arutz7, Dr. Aryeh Eldad for the first time released a statement that he requested be widely distributed so that people will understand what is taking place all over the world. It is important to understand what radical Islam is about and what the world is facing if it is not stopped.

Dr. Eldad: 
I was instrumental in establishing the Israeli National Skin Bank, which is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for everyday needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations. The skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. 

This is how I was asked to supply skin for an (Muslim) Arab woman from Gaza, who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such atrocities happen among (Muslim) Arab families when the women are suspected of having an affair.

We supplied all the needed Homograft for her treatment. She was successfully treated by my friend and colleague, Prof. Lior Rosenberg, and discharged to return to Gaza. She was invited for regular follow-up visits to the outpatient clinic in Be'er-Sheva.

One day she was caught at a border crossing wearing a suicide belt. Her mission was to explode herself in the outpatient clinic of the hospital where they saved her life. It seems that her family promised her that if she did that, they would forgive her. 

This is only one example of the war between Jews and Muslims in the Land of Israel. It is not a territorial conflict. This is a civilizational conflict, or rather a war between civilization and barbarism. 

Bibi Netanyahu gets it, Obama does not.

"I have never written before asking to please forward onward, so that as many as possible can understand radical Islam and what awaits the world if it is not stopped."

Urgent Prayer Request!

Dear Friends and Partners
I, Meridel Rawlings am writing on behalf of Jay. 

Five days ago he was admitted to the cardiac unit in Jerusalem’s  Share Tzedek  Hospital. (Gates of  Righteousness) He is under supervision and intensive testing to discern the cause of his rapid heart beat, shortness of breath and fluid in his lungs. He is taking medication to slow his heart. 

Tomorrow he will  under go a “shock” to the heart. The Doctors will stop it and start it again, hoping to regulate the heart beat. We need your prayers at this critical time~my sons and I thank You and we know You are there for us.

Jay and I hate having to ask for financial help. We find it very humbling, and in a perfect world we could just keep working and say nothing about expenses. But that is not the case. Stress is part of the load here, and financials are very close to the top of the list. If there is any way you could send a donation to help us keep  Jerusalem Vistas/Israel Vision going at this very critical time, we would be most grateful. (Directions for giving are at the end of this message.)

2016 was an action packed year and there is reason to be a little weary. Upon return to Israel we have experienced one hit after the other on so many levels. It feels like an onslaught, but now, with Jay taken out of commission, we know we are under direct attack. We are being inundated with regulations and hidden fees. The office is currently squeezed into the living room of our home. At this time we have had to cancel everything, but  try to carry on as best we can under the circumstances. We are being tried and tested.
Pray with us for Jay’s complete recovery Please. Pray also that he will allow himself to rest and heal when he returns home from the hospital. We Need Him in order to carry on with the Kingdom work.
Thank You All for remembering Israel in your prayers. We sense that things are changing for the better. Remember this is “a land the LORD our God cares for~always”...Deuteronomy 11:11-12
This comes with love from our home to yours...

Every blessing at this Hanukah and Christmas time,
Meridel Rawlings, sons and team

The Myth Of Palestinian Arab Refugees Exposed

For many years there have been opposing sides on the issue of "Palestinian Refugees". This topic has been discussed, fought over and tossed around for years. For some reason, (unknown it seems) to the western world, the problem is growing with frightening speed. Why?

Part of the problem is the western way of thinking and its incompatibility with the middle-east mind set. Part of it is a plethora of red herrings making understanding difficult to say the least. We are constantly looking for videos, that contain facts and figures to help those who are interested in truth. The video below is from a series made by former Ambassador, Yorim Ettinger.

Yarom Ettinger is an insider on US-Israel relations, Mideast politics and overseas investments in Israel's high tech.  He is a member of the American-Israel Demographic Research Group (AIDRG), which has documented dramatic flaws behind demographic fatalism on one hand and a Jewish demographic momentum on the other hand.

Mr. Ettinger is a consultant to members of Israel’s Cabinet and Knesset, and regularly briefs U.S. legislators and their staff on Israel’s contribution to vital U.S. interests, on the root causes of international terrorism and other issues of bilateral concern. Ambassador (ret.) Ettinger's Op Eds have been published in Israel and in the US, and he has been interviewed on Israel's and US’ TV and radio.  He was also a speaker at an AIPAC Annual Conference.

Ambassador (ret.) Ettinger~who did his graduate studies at UCLA and undergraduate at UTEP~served as Minister for Congressional Affairs at Israel's Embassy in Washington (with a rank of an ambassador), Israel's Consul General in Houston and Director of Israel's Government Press Office.  He is the editor of Straight from the Jerusalem Cloakroom and Boardroom newsletters on issues of national security and overseas investments in Israel's high-tech.

Isn't it Time for the World to Stop Shoveling Money Into A Bottomless Pit??
