shabbus clock euthanasia

Tim Butcher in Jerusalem
Machines will perform euthanasia on terminally ill patients in Israel under legislation devised not to offend Jewish law, which forbids people taking human life.
A special timer will be fitted to a patient's respirator which will sound an alarm 12 hours before turning it off.
Normally, carers would override the alarm and keep the respirator turned on but, if various stringent conditions are met, including the giving of consent by the patient or legal guardian, the alarm would not be overridden.
The bill, which was approved at the third and final reading in the Knesset by 22 votes to three with one abstention, will become law next year.
Danny Naveh, the health minister, described the passing of the law as a historic moment, saying: "This is one of the most important laws passed by the Knesset. It represents major moral value for the terminally ill and their families."

Bad Jews , Bad Jews



LAS VEGAS -- Heavyweight fighter Joe Mesi, sidelined since suffering bleeding on the brain after a 2004 bout, won a chance Monday to return to the ring when a state judge ruled his medical suspension expired when his Nevada boxing license expired. Mesi went to court after the Athletic Commission ruled in June that he failed to convince the panel that he was fit for competition as a boxer in Nevada. Mesi's lawyer said that if Mesi applies for another boxing license in Nevada, the state Athletic Commission should treat him as a new applicant instead of a suspended one.

Ha! thats nothing , see us

I apologize for all the gloom and doom. Daniel Pipes delineates in his article why he is pessimistic about the world’s development. Here are 9 main points.

  1. Harvard and Georgetown universities each accepted US$20 million for Islamic studies from a Saudi prince who overtly promotes his government’s Wahhabi outlook, Alwaleed bin Talal.
  2. A Florida jury somehow managed to overlook the massive evidence of Sami Al-Arian’s leading role in Palestinian Islamic Jihad and acquit him on this charge.
  3. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, boasts an endorsement from Wells Fargo Bank, an invitation from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and a letter of congratulations from the president’s brother, Jeb Bush.
  4. The Muslim Public Affairs Council, hosted representatives of the departments of Justice and State at a conference last week.
  5. The Bush administration seems to be allowing the Iranian regime to build nuclear weapons, stipulating only that the Russians carry out the uranium enrichment, an ineffectual safeguard.
  6. Pursuing its democracy campaign to its logical conclusion, Washington is signaling a willingness to deal with Islamists in Lebanon, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, and elsewhere, thereby bolstering radical Islam’s power.
  7. Elite opinion ascribes the French intifada only to faults in French society, such as unemployment and discrimination.
  8. The Blair government appointed an Islamist banned from entering the United States, Tariq Ramadan, to a prestigious taskforce; and it abandoned efforts even temporarily to close down extremist mosques.
  9. John Kerry’s notion of terrorism as a nuisance similar to prostitution or gambling has taken hold, suggesting that future acts of violence will be shrugged off. And, even if mass murders do wake the public, a next round of alertness will presumably be as ephemeral as the last one.

Who is this man? Who cares?


His name was Yossi Shok.

He was murdered near Chevron last week. He left 5 orphans. I didn't hear about it in the news or in shul. Of course I didn’t hear about it in the mainstream media, I didn't hear about it among my own people. If we as a group remain mute when a calamity hits our own how can we expect the media to treat it as newsworthy? How can we honestly implore from the Master of the Universe that He keep the world safe if we ignore our own tragedies?
