How does Israel - with fewer people than the state of New Jersey, no natural resources, and hostile nations all around - produce more tech companies listed on the NASDAQ than all of Europe, Japan, South Korea, India, and China combined?

How does Israel attract, per person, 30 times as much venture capital as Europe and more than twice the flow to American companies? How does it produce, for its size, the most cutting-edge technology start ups in the world?/Hoping to convert someone? I hardly think so, from what I've read I believe the average Atheist would walk away puffing themselves up and boasting "I just shot another couple of 'Religious Nuts'down today" Haven't you read in Mt 7:6 "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet,and turn and tear you to pieces."(In other words Holy and valuable things must be given only to those who are open to appreciate them) God is not being 'Judgemental'in saying this, his will is that everyone would come to repentance but it is also his will to give us freewill. This verse was written so we will use discernment and not let God's truths be laid open to mockery and abuse.(Happening on this board) They (the Atheists) have no interest in trying to understand the truths of Scripture but are only making sport of them and trying to distort them. When the Aplstle Peter spoke of Pauls letters in 2Pt 3:16 he said "His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort,as they do the other scriptures, to their own destruction." I believe it would be far better to pray for God to open the eyes of their hearts than to get into silly auguments that they use to score points and pat themselves and each other on the back. The Lord warned us in 2Ti 2:23 "Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments,because you know they produce quarrels." - and again - "But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless." Why quote the Bible to those who have beforehand made up their minds to reject it, you may as well quote from Harry Potter. These people have hardened their hearts as the Scripture says in Eph 4:18 "They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts." I am not saying these Atheists are beyond help but our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. That is why I said to pray. Watch how they respond to this and judge for yourself.

/the story of Karin (presumably a pseudonym), a German woman who took a taxi downtown and got arrested for doing so. Thrown into a dungeon, beaten, raped, traumatized, no one knew where she was.Finally, a married Saudi man (alas, one to whom she was already attracted), moved heaven and earth to rescue her. He got her released after having her German husband deported and after marrying her without Karin even being present. A well connected Saudi man can rescue his wife from prison. Satam moved Karin into the home he shared with his first wife Fatima and their children. Satam soon lost interest in Karin and spent long hours away from home. But Karin was already pregnant. Here's how Fatima handled the situation.First, around midnight, while Karin was sleeping, Fatima put on loud Arabic music, came into Karin's room and "slammed a massive stick down onto my stomach…I screamed for help. 'No one is going to hear you, Gahba (whore)!'" The first wife kept swinging the stick at her. Karin fled.Finally, Satam got Karin her own apartment. Whereupon, Fatima started calling her to "harass and terrorize me…she spread rumors that I had a boyfriend who secretly came to visit me." In fact, Fatima enlisted relatives in an elaborate scheme to entrap Karin and to report all such concocted suspicious doings to Satam.But here is the most evil thing that Fatima did. Because Mimi, their housemaid, was helpful to Karin, Fatima reported Mimi to the mutawa for "fornication." The fact that this was totally untrue made no difference. Once Mimi was arrested, Prince Salman signed her death warrant. Satam could do nothing to reverse this decree. Thus, the following Friday, after prayers, the appropriate verses from the Qu'ran having been read, Mimi was stoned to death. The two Indian men she was accused of "fornicating" with (shopkeepers, where Mimi was shopping for Karin) each received one hundred lashes.The graphic description of Mimi's stoning is too awful for me to repeat.I am waiting for Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama to spell out precisely what American policy should be vis a vis Saudi Arabia given their barbaric record on human rights and their major role in funding and exporting Islamic Jihad globally.//Jews "flocking to Israel" in days to come may have revealed a belief in end-times theology, the Rapture, and the death of all Jews who do not convert to Christianity./Tea Party Patriots publicly heckled a grieving family and suggested that the couple fabricated their tragic story.

But technically, stress is both a psychological and physical response. Along with the new millennium, we have a new kind of stress: SuperStress. It is the result of our over-stimulated, over-extended modern lifestyle. The diagnosis of SuperStress describes a physical and emotional state that resembles post-traumatic stress disorder. SuperStress leaves you feeling unable to catch up or get a handle on things; it saps you of your sense of humor and perspective about what's important in life.

In the larger context of health, study after study has shown the link between chronic stress and the worsening of many medical conditions such as coronary artery disease, diabetes, gastrointestinal issues, obesity, high blood pressure, asthma, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and cancer. /Peru's anti-kidnapping police. He said the suspects, two of whom were arrested carrying bottles of liquid fat, told police it was worth $60,000 a gallon ($15,000 a liter).

Mejia said the suspects told police the fat was sold to intermediaries in Lima, the Peruvian capital. While police suspect the fat was sold to cosmetic companies in Europe, he could not confirm any sales.

Medical experts expressed doubt about an international black market for human fat, though it does have cosmetic applications. Yale University dermatology professor Dr. Lisa Donofrio speculated that a small market may exist for "human fat extracts" to keep skin supple, though scientifically such treatments are "pure baloney."

At a news conference, police showed reporters two bottles of fat recovered from the suspects and a photo of the rotting head of a 27-year-old male victim. Suspect Elmer Segundo Castillejos, 29, led police to the head, recovered in a coca-growing valley last month, Mejia said.

Mejia said Castillejos confessed that the gang would cut off its victims' heads, arms and legs, remove the organs, then suspend the torsos from hooks above candles that warmed the flesh as the fat dripped into tubs below.

Six members of the gang remain at large, Mejia said, adding that in addition to the five killings the suspects confessed to, the gang may be involved in dozens more. Castillejos told police that the band's fugitive leader, 56-year-old Hilario Cudena, has been killing to extract fat from victims for more than three decades.

At least 60 people are listed as missing in Huanuco province, where the gang allegedly operated, this year alone,//
