More proof that Israel is indeed a light unto the nations and that our presence here is ancient and incontrovertible…writes Michael Kuttner.

ALZHEIMER’S RESEARCH

 Israeli researchers are leading the fight to combat this disease. A team at Sheba Medical Centre believes eyes are windows to our brain and could potentially help detect this devastating illness.

They are using advanced imaging techniques and a new medical device to track changes in pupil size that they hope could lead to the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease.

REGENERATING DAMAGED HEARTS

 Scientists at the Weizmann Institute have discovered a molecule prevalent in embryonic cardiac tissue which promotes rapid healing in adult mice as well as in human cells.

This finding could offer hope to millions of sufferers of cardiovascular diseases around the world.

FROM ISRAEL TO FIJI WITH LOVE

 More than fifty Fijian children have undergone surgery by a team of Israeli medical specialists.

As part of the humanitarian arm of the Israeli Foreign Ministry, the team of three doctors and a nurse is providing free surgeries and health screening at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva. It is expected that over a ten-day period some seventy surgeries will be performed.

EVIDENCE OF BABYLONIAN DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM

 In another one of those amazing coincidences on the eve of Tisha B’Av, further evidence has been unearthed proving the Jewish connection to Jerusalem.

Evidence of the destruction of Jerusalem and King Solomon’s Temple at the hands of the Babylonians was recently discovered in the City of David (Ir David) just south of the Old City of Jerusalem.

During excavations organized by the Israel Antiquities Authority and funded by the City of David Foundation (Elad) on the eastern slope of the City of David, structures built more than 2,600 years ago were found; unearthed after being covered over by layers of collapsed stone.

Underneath the stone, excavators found artifacts from the First Temple period, including charred wood, grape seeds, pottery, fish scales and bones, and pottery.

These findings, say researchers, hint at the affluence and character of Jerusalem, capital of the ancient kingdom of Judea. The artifacts also testify to the city’s destruction at the hands of the Babylonians in the 6th century BCE.
