ISRAEL: Is Now The Time To Speak Up and Take a Stand For Peace?
Original post made

Are you willing to take a stand? Do you wish to lend your collective voice to this issue? Is this somebody else's problem, or do you have a role in the solution? Do you wish to support others taking a stand? The answer may lie in the realization that if your city was in Israel's position, would you want others to help out? The short video referenced below may help to provide that answer. If not now, when and if not you, whom? This may be an excellent time to "Think globally and act locally."
Sending a letter supporting those whose efforts you approve, may be the best "$0.49c of Diplomacy" you ever spent. Spending one hour or more on world peace may be time well spent for you, your loved ones and the community.
I do hope before the year 2014 is over, that you find the time and a way, large or small, to do your part to support the efforts of others in one way or another. If you do, many will think the world of you. Thank you.

Are You Serious?! Bill Gates Said That About Israel.
What makes Israel a technological superpower? Is it the Jewish ability to challenge ideas, to question and think out of the box? The pioneer spirit and willingness to take risks? “… when you’re looking for brains, for energy, for integrity, it’s the only stop you need to make in the middle east.” Says Warren Buffet, Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. about Israel. Hear what Bill Gates, Meir Brand from Google, Israel, Dr. Daniel Zajfman, President of the Weizman Institute, and others say about Israel’s incredible technological accomplishments.
