Denver Church Posts Sign: 'Jews Killed the Lord Jesus'
Israel Faxx News Service
The Lovingway United Pentecostal Church in Denver has posted a sign saying, "Jews
Killed the Lord Jesus," apparently a quote from the New Testament. Jeff Auerbach, who has
both seen the sign and spoken with Pastor Gordon, asked him to please take the sign down.
Gordon has so far refused. Bruce DeBoskey of the local ADL spoke with Gordon but the
church only amended the billboard slightly by removing the word, "settled," and adding the
attribution to First Thessalonians.
Mass Terror Attack Thwarted; One Soldier Killed
By Sonja Pace (VOA-Jerusalem) & IsraelNationalNews.com
An Israeli Army force thwarted two Arab terrorists, on their way to a mass shooting
attack Thursday morning, before they could reach their target. The force killed both
terrorists, but not before the latter killed one soldier.
Brig. Gen. Gadi Shamni, commander of the IDF Forces in Gaza, told reporters that word
had been received of an Arab attempt to carry out a large-scale terrorist attack from
Gaza. The terrorists planned to pass through the Erez Crossing in northern Gaza, and from
there proceed to an area where many Israeli motorists passed by.
Precautions were initiated a few hours before dawn, including the closing of the Erez
industrial zone and the dispatching of forces to seek out the terrorists. When the
terrorists were discovered, they fired a single shot, and shortly afterwards fired again,
this time killing a soldier and wounding two others. Reinforcements then arrived,
overcoming and killing the attackers.
It is still not clear how the terrorists arrived at the Crossing. Popular wisdom in the
IDF at present is that the terrorists arrived in the area via a five-meter tunnel they dug
under the Gaza perimeter fence.
The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades of Fatah, which is linked to Yasir Arafat's Fatah faction,
claimed responsibility for the attack. Its most recent attack was the #14 bus bombing in
Jerusalem this week, took responsibility for Wednesday's attack. A Kalashnikov rifle and
grenades were found on the terrorists' bodies. MK Ehud Yatom (Likud) said that the
terrorists are encouraged by Sharon's plan to retreat from Gaza, and wish to encourage it
The fallen soldier was the 143rd casualty of Palestinian terrorism since Israel
accepted the Road Map - with 14 reservations - last June, and the 25th since the beginning
Also, two Palestinians are dead and dozens of people are reported injured in a
confrontation with Israeli security forces in the West Bank. This violence occurred in the
West Bank village of Bidou, near Jerusalem, where Palestinian demonstrators clashed with
Israeli troops. Palestinian officials said two men were shot dead by the soldiers.
Thousands of Palestinians turned out for the second day in a row in Bidou and nearby
Beit Surik to protest against the barrier Israel is building in and around the West Bank.
The demonstrators apparently tried to stop construction workers from putting up a new
section of the barrier. Security forces reportedly used rubber-coated bullets and tear gas
to push back the demonstrators. Witnesses said the soldiers also fired live
New Israeli Medical Firsts
Recent Israeli "firsts" once again confirmed Israel's place at the forefront of medical
research and health care technology. This time, both breakthroughs come from Jerusalem's
Israeli fertility experts at the Hadassah University Hospital-Ein Karem have
facilitated the birth of two healthy babies from embryos that were frozen for five years
longer than previously thought possible. The happy parents, from Jerusalem, had their IVF
(in vitro fertilization) embryos frozen in 1990 as a result of unidentified fertility
The embryos are considered to be the world's oldest to have been implanted successfully
in a womb and proves frozen embryos can remain viable for much longer than previously
believed. Until now, the longest human eggs have been frozen and then defrosted to produce
an in vitro fertilization (IVF) baby was seven years.
In 1990, a Jerusalem resident, aged 27, and her husband, who were experiencing
unexplained infertility problems, underwent vitro fertilization producing 12 embryos. Four
of the embryos were transferred back to her womb immediately, while the other eight were
frozen within 72 hours. The woman became pregnant from three of the initial four embryos
and subsequently gave birth to healthy twin girls. A few years later, she became pregnant
without assistance and delivered a healthy baby girl.
Two years ago, the couple decided they would like to have more children and again
turned to Hadassah. Four of the eight remaining frozen embryos were transferred back and
the woman became pregnant. When the fetuses were 36 weeks old, healthy twins each weighing
five pounds were born. The twins - a boy and a girl - are now nine months old and
developing normally, according to Revel.
The Hadassah process was reported on in the February edition of the prestigious medical
journal Human Reproduction. Dr. Ariel Revel of the In Vitro Fertilization Unit of
Hadassah's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a team of Hadassah physicians
carried out the procedure.
"Israel has always been at the forefront of the whole issue of fertility treatment,
because the scientific community here is dedicated to the subject," Revel told Israel21c
website, "Many of the breakthroughs in this field have come from Israel and at
international conferences on the subject, you'll always find Israelis in the front
In another field entirely, orthopedic surgeons at Hadassah University Hospital-Mt.
Scopus became the first in the world to perform hip replacement surgery (arthroscopy) with
the assistance of a computer navigation system. Hadassah Hospital presented the results of
the recent surgery, in the person of 53-year-old Amram Weiser of Kibbutz Yad Mordechai,
who was the fourth patient to have undergone the computer-assisted operation.
Israel's Revolutionary Lie-Detector Eyeglasses
A new Israeli invention called "Voice Analysis Eyeglasses" has created a new brand of
lie detectors that make the need for wires and electrodes absolute. In fact, the new lie
detector developed in Israel is so inconspicuous that one may not even know they are being
The glasses provide lie detection analysis on the inside of their lenses about whoever
is speaking at the time, claims Nemesysco, the Israeli company which developed the new
technology. Mathematician Amir Lieberman at Nemesysco's headquarters in the town of Zuran
developed the glasses for military, insurance claim, and law enforcement use. The
technology is also being repackaged and retargeted for personal and corporate applications
by V Entertainment in New York.
The heart of Nemesysco's security-oriented technology is a signal-processing engine
that is said to use more than 8,000 algorithms each time it analyzes an incoming voice
waveform. In this way it detects levels of various emotional states from the pitch and
speed of the voice simultaneously.
Anti-terrorism, law enforcement, insurance and workers compensation claim assessment
companies are already beginning to use variations of the eyeglass technology software
which is already available as a downloadable PC program which can analyze voices either
live or over the phone. Lieberman says the glasses will be available in the U.S. by June
for a price ranging between $500 and $1,000.
