Introducing Alex Artovski, reportedly a former Soviet policeman, former Israeli policemanÃ‚Â andÃ‚Â current head of YadÃ‚Â L'Achim's anti-Missionary department.
A few years ago ArtovskiÃ‚Â once boasted to the Orthodox newspaper HaModiaÃ‚Â that he uses all the tricks of his former trade as a policeman in the oppressive Soviet regime. It is a bit odd thenÃ‚Â that YadÃ‚Â L'AchimÃ‚Â are considering taking Calev Myers, a Messianic Jewish lawyer, to court for describing their tactics as similar to such totalitarianÃ‚Â regimes when Artovski madeÃ‚Â a similarÃ‚Â claim himself!
Artovski (Artovsky), in his late forties, early fifties, uses various techniques to wage war against Messianic Jews and missionaries, amongst them included his going undercover and pretending to be interested in Yeshua. He targets the weak inside the congregation and then intensively works on them to 'save their souls'.
Artovski boasted that he has paidÃ‚Â 'informants' in nearly all Israel's Messianic congregations as well as informants abroad in the upper echelons of the Messianic Ã‚Â movement.
There recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named Irena.
During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.
She had an 'ulterior motive' ... She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German.)
Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids..) She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises..
During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.
She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely.
Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.
Many countries and world leaders have accused Israel of responding disproportionately to aggression from Hizballah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.
However, it is time that the world press and media speak of another disproportionate response from Israel.

The methods of harassment and persecution used by the ultra-Orthodox organization Yad L'Achim against innocent, law-abiding Israeli citizens goes beyond the limits of legitimate activity by a civilian body and borders on unlawful. The organization, which has deployed a dense net of activists across the country and the world, is proud of "rescuing" Jewish men, women and children from the "claws" of other faiths and belief systems using coercive and dubious tactics.
Geneva (ENI). The general secretary of the World Council of Churches has said that Israel's occupation of Palestinian territories should be declared a "sin against God". "Occupation along with the concomitant humiliation of a whole people for over six decades constitutes not just economic and political crimes but, like anti-Semitism, it is a sin against God," said WCC general secretary the Rev. Samuel Kobia, in a report to a meeting of the church grouping's main governing body, its central committee. [718 words, ENI-09-0677]
The following piece, written by CAMERA analyst Dexter Van Zile, appeared in The Jewish World Review on July 27.
Anglican Priest Naim Ateek is making the rounds in support of his most recent book, A Palestinian Christian Cry for Reconciliation (Orbis, 2008), in which he falsely accuses Israel of perpetrating a "slow and creeping genocide" against Palestinians "” who have one of the fastest growing populations in the world.

Marching towards Gog & Magog (Ezekial 38 & 39) Obama makes deal with Russia allowing Russia to continue to see nuclear technology to IranÃ‚Â - Jacob Prasch
The release of a world currency by the G8, governments toppled in South America and riots in the streets of Iran pale in comparison to what is about to happen between Israel and Iran. Nuclear armed subs have been sent by Israel into the Red Sea and Russia is arming Iran with very sophisticated missile technology. Meanwhile President Obama's "sensitivity workshop" foreign policy between Russia, Iran and Israel will unleash catastrophic forces, major terrorist attacks and a regional thermonuclear war.

The American lawyer Alan Dershowitz is one of the most prolific, high-profile and indefatiguable defenders of Israel and the Jewish people against the tidal wave of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish feeling currently coursing through the west. So a piece by him in the Wall Street Journal giving expression to the rising anxiety being felt about Obama by American Jews naturally arouses great interest.Ã‚Â
