Should we Laugh or Cry? —

The Teddy Bear Crisis in Sudan

By Moshe Terdman

The Project for the Research of Islamist Movements – PRISM – was founded by Reuven Paz in 2002, in order to combine academic and field research of new developments of radical Islam and Islamist movements. The project is part of the GLORIA Center in the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya.

The project is dealing with developments of radical Islamic and Islamist movements in the social, cultural, ideological, and political fields; Finance of radical Islamist groups; Sponsoring of Islamic states to Islamist radicalism and terrorism; Islamic communities in the West; The “Culture of Global Jihad” and its attitude toward the Western civilization, Israel, and the Jews; Islamist networks; and support for radical Islam through the virtual global Jihad in the Internet. The focus of its research is on primary sources in Arabic, and the project wishes to fill some vacuum in the use of Arabic sources for the Islamist phenomenon.

PRISM wishes to become a home and platform for scholars in these fields, to conduct research, publish their products, and organize conferences, seminars, and workshops on the above topics.

Sun 2/24/08

Congressman Weldon addresses KCAC about greater cooperation between the two sister caucuses.

Jerusalem – The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus met today with Congressman Dave Weldon, co-Chairman of the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus (CIAC). The CIAC was established in July 2006 in response to the initiative of its sister caucus, the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus (KCAC) of the Israeli Parliament.

Attending the meeting were many MKs of the caucus, Opposition leader and Chairman of Likud, MK Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as many Christian leaders. Discussed at the meeting was cooperation between the KCAC and the CIAC. At the event, Chairman of the KCAC, MK Benny Elon and Congressman Weldon, ratified a joint resolution between the two sister caucuses. “This resolution will act as a blueprint for political cooperation between the KCAC and its sister caucuses.” said caucus director, Josh Reinstein. This resolution will be signed by all of the chairmen of the 11 sister caucuses later this year.

Congressman Weldon called for the “Unity of all peoples of good will to declare that those who stand together for freedom, democracy and justice must stand with Israel in its hour of greatest trial.” MK Elon, Chairman of the caucus, expressed that “this network of inter-parliamentary caucuses that have been created around the world will bring in a new era of political support for Israel “. Christian leaders attending the meeting were proud of the new burgeoning relations. “I think that part of the reason there is this growing relationship between Jews and Christians is that our values our under attack, both physically and spiritually. ” said former Prime Minister Netanyahu who himself has been a pioneer in building the new relationship with Christian allies around the world.

On March 5, 2008, members of the KCAC will be meeting in Washington, D.C with the CIAC on Capitol Hill.

The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus, founded by the late Yuri Shtern, in January, 2004, is chaired by Member of Knesset Benny Elon. It is made up of twelve members of Knesset from seven parties, across the political spectrum. Its mission is to build formal and direct lines of communication, cooperation and coordination between Christian leaders and Members of Knesset.

A Jewish Philosophy of History

A Jewish Philosophy of History:

Israel’s Degradation and

Redemption

Book by Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Sun 2/24/08

eidelberg@foundation1.org

In A Jewish Philosophy of History: Israel’s Degradation and Redemption, Prof. Paul Eidelberg unites three disciplines — politics, philosophy, and science — in reader-friendly language.

Since its first printing in 2004, dramatic events have occurred in the world which further confirm Israel’s current degradation, but which also point to Israel’s ultimate redemption. After a candid analysis of Israel’s degradation, Eidelberg sets forth a comprehensive remedial program. He reveals the flawed mentality of Israel’s ruling elites as well as the inherent flaws of Israel’s system of governance, both of which hinder a renaissance of Hebraic civilization. Eidelberg sees this renaissance as essential for overcoming the clash between of the West, now mired in relativism, and Islam long trapped in absolutism.

Eidelberg explains that Judaism is not a religion so much as a verifiable system of knowledge. Citing the works of eminent physicists from Einstein to Hawking, he reveals the convergence of science and Torah. He then sets forth the world-historical program of the Torah. But what is most remarkable, he shows how philosophers, scientists, and empires since the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE, have unwittingly facilitated the Torah’s world-historical program! He concludes by elucidating the basic principles of Hebraic civilization, precisely what mankind needs to avoid the scourge of Western Nihilism and Islamic Jihad.
