Hashkama #53 ~ Sparrows—are they a curse or a blessing?

The Bible talks about sparrows— Jesus said, “…not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.” (Matthew 10:29) One winter in 1958 an ‘estimated’ 194, 432 sparrows were killed in one day, in one area alone. Across the whole nation the sparrow population was decimated with millions of birds dead on the ground. Without the sparrow population the bugs they once fed on thrived. The locust population spiralled out of control along with the grasshoppers. Famine followed as the insects devoured the crops.

Hashkama #50 - The Future Generation Fund

By Meir Abelson

(Submitted by Malcolm Baker)

One day in 1980 Meir Abelson, a Land Valuer with the Ministry of Justice in Jerusalem, was walking along Alkalay Street in Rehavia when he spied a newly painted notice on the door of number 9: "THE CENTER FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICE." Something impelled him to enter; sitting at a desk was Hava Ya'ari, a retired head teacher at Yehuda Halevi School. She looked at him and said: "I only put that notice on the door five minutes ago; you are the first person to come in!" Meir replied: "What can I do for you?"

Hashkama #49 ~ Plymouth - A Deception Too Far

Britain is a witness to the world of a nation that has departed from the presence of the Lord. Britain, in abandoning her God has surrendered her moral, spiritual and intellectual standards that were the norm when we acknowledged Him as our Lord and King. Common sense has been tossed overboard by the fiery prongs of Hell replacing it with Political Correctness. The intelligentsia and some of the common people too, have experienced the seeping contamination of Hell’s sludge, and have come under the hypnotic spell causing fumes.

Hashkama #48 - The Battered of Britain

Plans put in place have been mainly ineffective in battling the forces of nature as the rains come down and the floods come up. Environmental elites are incompetent getting wrong most of the decisions they have made, according to the individuals that are suffering the consequences of flooded homes and communities. Reports state those men working at ground level are excellent and are working very hard to improve things, but they have to do what they are told by their bosses who are getting it horribly wrong.

Hashkama #47 - Be of Good Courage

“Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” (Psalm 24:4-5)

The world and much of the Church today are bereft of truth. Today’s world is built upon lies, deception and propaganda, and that is not anything new; it began in the Book of Genesis and in the Garden of Eden.

Hashkama #46 - My Life in 'Apartheid' Israel

By Meir Abelson

In 1971 my family and I arrived in Jerusalem from England and moved into a newly-built apartment. The first thing we needed was an electrician.  I spoke to one of my neighbours, and he warmly recommended an East Jerusalem Arab.  When the latter arrived, we found that he spoke excellent English; apparently he worked during the British Mandate in an army store.  We were very pleased with his work; and after he finished and left us, he often took the opportunity to drop in and visit us when he was in the neighbourhood.

Hashkama #45 - The "Palestinian" Hoax

By Meir Abelson

What can be done about the Palestinian refugees –who are estimated today to number about seven million, including the descendants of the original 630,000? The conventional answer is: the Arabs and Israelis must be persuaded to come to an agreement, on the basis of two states for two peoples. This solution has been bandied around for over 70 years but has always foundered for an obvious reason that is never mentioned: ISLAM.

Hashkama #44 - Questions & Answers

In 2008, historian, Meir Abelson was asked by a radio station in Miami to give a telephone interview lasting an hour to mark Israel's 60th birthday. He was given 12 questions to which he had to give concise answers. Question 1 was a very short answer on the Balfour Declaration, so here, we are including questions (and concise answers) 2 – 12.

Question 2: What was the initial reaction of the Arabs to the possibility that a Jewish State could be re-established?
