A Palestinian baby is lucky to be alive after being saved by an Israel Defense Forces doctor, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

The IDF doctor's life-saving actions averted a tragedy, which may have struck a Palestinian family.

On Friday night, in the Palestinian village of Beitin near Ramallah, the one-month-old Palestinian baby started to choke in her home while playing with her sister. The mother brought the baby to an IDF checkpoint near the Beit El Division Headquarters.

An IDF officer from the division noticed the panicked mother with the choking infant in her arms. He immediately called the nearest IDF doctor. Within a few minutes, Sec. Lt. Ben Tzanani and his team were at the scene and saved the baby’s life.

“I got a phone call about a baby choking, and so I called up my medical team,” said Sec. Lt. Tzanani. “My medical team and I were first on the scene. I asked the family to bring the baby to our ambulance and I started to check her vitals. The medical team provided initial stabilizing treatment. I think it took about 5 to 7 minutes from the time the officer spotted them until we came,” recalled Sec. Lt. Tzanani.

“Later on, the ‘Red crescent’ (Palestinian ambulance) came and helped us, and also the brigade’s doctor came to continue the examination. He saw the baby was recovering and that there was no need to evacuate her to an Israeli hospital, so we handed her over to the Red Crescent ambulance, which took the baby to a hospital in Ramallah,” Sec. Lt. Tzanani added.

Doctor Tzanani continued to recount: “The division headquarters received many phone calls from the villagers of Beitin, who expressed their gratitude. In medical issues there is no difference between Palestinians and Israelis. A one-month-old baby is a human being, and so we are obligated to save her life. There were many incidents in which young Palestinians, who were hurling rocks or shooting at soldiers, received medical care from us. Nevertheless, this was my first incident with a baby,” concluded Sec. Lt. Tzanani.

This event is in no way unique or singular. IDF medical teams and Israeli civilian emergency units from the communities in Judea and Samaria, also known as the West Bank, regularly treat local Palestinians at car accidents or for a broad array of ailments and injuries. The Palestinians' practice of walking to an IDF checkpoint or to the front gate of an Israeli community for medical treatment is common.

On April 1st an IDF medical team treated 20 wounded Palestinians after a serious car crash. Last December, a car accident in the region involved three Palestinian women, who were seriously injured. The three women were treated by an IDF medical team at the scene. They required more extensive care and were transferred to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem.

World renowned cantor saves lives with his United Hatzalah motorcycle

Cantor Shlomo Glick 
By: Anav Silverman

A world renowned cantor recently spoke out about his passion for volunteering as a United Hatzalah first responder, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

They are a familiar site in Jerusalem and across Israel – United Hatzalah volunteers rushing in their orange vests and red motorcycles to save lives during calls of emergency distress.

Each of the 2,100 registered volunteers, who include secular Israelis, ultra-Orthodox Jews, Arabs, settlers, and citizens across the spectrum, carry a defibrillator and necessary medical equipment to treat patients as quickly as possible.

Many volunteers also carry their own stories, leaving behind families, professions and busy lives when the dispatch call arrives. Internationally renowned Israeli cantor Shlomo Glick of Jerusalem, is one of those volunteers. When Glick is not on stage performing with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra or singing before international audiences in Berlin, London, New York, and Prague, he is on a lifesaving mission with his ambucycle responding to emergency calls in Israel.

The 36-year-old father of six children, who recently performed at the United Hatzalah 10th anniversary concert with other leading singers, sat with Tazpit News Agency in an interview about his work as a cantor and an emergency volunteer.

“Hatzalah is always on my mind – I can get a call anywhere and anytime, even in the middle of leading prayer services at the synagogue or recording a cantorial piece at a music studio,” Glick said.

Cantor Glick recalled one incident when he was recording a cantorial piece at a well-known music studio in Meah Shearim. “In the middle of the song, my mobile-alert went off. I rushed to a playground nearby, where a mom had called and I treated her unconscious baby,” he said.

United Hatzalah utilizes unique GPS dispatch technology to identify the closest and most qualified volunteers to respond to an emergency. This gives volunteers, whose cellphones and motorcycles carry the GPS technology, the ability to arrive on scene between two to three minutes. Glick responds on average to two to three emergency calls every day.

“This Passover, we took our kids on a trip to northern Israel. On the way, I saw a car accident and I had to go treat an injured person. My kids know that I have to respond because that’s what dad does,” he explained.

“It’s not easy on the wife and kids – many times I will have to go out in the middle of kiddush on Shabbat or when putting my children to bed. One moment can make all the difference when it comes to saving a life,” he told the Tazpit News Agency.

“United Hatzalah’s goal is to prevent untimely deaths. We don’t want to say - had we been there, it could have been different,” Eli Beer, the founder and President of United Hatzalah whose volunteers arrive on scene in less than 3 minutes, filling the time gap between the emergency and the arrival of the ambulance, said. “Whoever saves a single life, saves an entire world,” he added, quoting a famous Talmudic adage.

Beer and Glick both believe that their desire to save lives developed from the way they were raised.

“It’s all about education from home – you teach your kids the value of life and that seed grows,” Beer, a property developer and full-time United Hatzalah volunteer with over 25 years of life-saving experience, said. Beer was raised in a home where medical volunteering was part of the household.

His father was an ambulance driver during the Yom Kippur War and as a young child, Beer witnessed a bus bombing in Jerusalem during the first Intifada and has been on site as medical responder during multiple suicide bombings during the Second Intifada.

Like Beer, Glick also grew up with a father who volunteered as an emergency medical responder, and said that volunteering is a family affair. “My father, 61, still volunteers as an ambulance driver with Hatzalah and so does my brother,” he explained.

“Our volunteers could just go home after work and play golf,” said Beer. “However, they don’t. There’s an understanding that there is more to life than just your livelihood and personal gain,” he continued.

Glick himself is well-known in the cantorial world. “Sometimes it shocks people to see that Shlomo Glick is the one responding to their call. They’ve seen him in these powerful performances, belting impressive pieces; they listen to his albums, and suddenly he’s in person treating their condition,” said Beer.

“It would be like Bono arriving on a motorcycle to save people on a weekly basis,” he added.

Glick has even found himself singing to a patient while giving him oxygen. “In one incident, as I was treating an elderly man, his wife had asked me to sing her husband’s favorite cantorial piece and that’s what I did. After, he was treated and discharged from the hospital, he couldn’t believe that it was me who had responded first to the call. Some people have said to me that it’s not fitting for someone of my profession to ride a motorcycle. An artist is supposed to distance himself from the public for his image. That doesn’t interest me,” explained Cantor Glick. “God gave us life and he can take away life. Your image as a musician or whatever profession, isn’t important when you’re saving a human being's life,” he concluded.

Worldwide study shows anti-Jewish attacks increased sharply in last year

A new study released just ahead of Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, showed that anti-Jewish attacks rose sharply, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

The worldwide annual report on Anti-Semitism during 2013 was released today.

The report that was compiled by Professor Dina Porat of the Moshe Kantor database for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism and Racism at Tel Aviv University, in cooperation with the European Jewish Congress, described a severe escalation in the worldwide anti-Jewish atmosphere in 2013, as anti-Semitism continues to infiltrate the mainstream from the extreme left and right fringes, and its manifestations have become an almost daily phenomenon.

The major conclusion of the research conducted by the Kantor Center team and supported by both community reports and independent surveys by non-Jewish sources, is that the anxiety felt by Jews around the world, both as individuals and as communities, originates in the growing intensity and the increase in insults, abusive language and behavior, threats and harassments, but not necessarily in an increase in the number of physical violent incidents.

Surveys show that most Jews who have experienced an anti-Semitic verbal or physical attack, did not report them. Therefore, the situation is worse than the one reported by monitoring and law enforcing agencies, and Jewish communities.

During 2013, the Kantor Center team registered and analyzed 554 violent anti-Semitic acts perpetrated with weapons or without, by arson, vandalism or direct threats against Jewish persons or institutions such as synagogues, community centers, schools, cemeteries and monuments, as well as private property. Physically violent incidents decreased in 2013 by 19% to 554 attacks, yet the number of direct attacks against persons is steadily increasing.

Among all registered cases worldwide there were 25 attacks with weapons, 98 cases of weaponless violence, 9 cases of arson, 89 direct threats, and 333 incidents of vandalism. The targets of such incidents were 185 persons, 67 synagogues, 52 community centers and schools, 90 cemeteries and memorial sites and 160 private properties.

The highest number of events occurred in France: 116, (compared to 200 in 2012). A decline in violent cases was registered in Italy, Poland, the U.S. and Australia, and a rise was recorded in the U.K., Canada, Germany and Ukraine. The number of violent incidents during the last decade (2004-2014) is higher than in the 1990s.

The disconcerting findings were the result of a wide scope survey published in the beginning of November 2013, by the Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA), a research branch of the European Union (EU), on the reactions and perceptions among European Jews regarding anti-Semitism. The survey was conducted among six thousand Jews in eight countries, where approximately one million Jews who constitute 90% of the Jewish population of the European Union reside.

The findings point at an intensified feeling that personal safety and communal well being are jeopardized, especially in Hungary, France, and Belgium, followed by Sweden, Italy, Germany, the U.K. and Latvia, where the situation is less severe.

About 80% of those questioned in Hungary, considered extreme right circles as the main source of threat; over 60% in Italy pointed to the left; 73% in France and 60% in Belgium blamed radical Muslims, while anti-Semitism originating in the church and in Christianity in general, was last on the list.

The report offers two conclusions. First: there is a growing discrepancy between official policies in most western countries that support commemorating the Holocaust, condemning any form of anti-Semitism, and promoting legislation against anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial, and the popular opinion in such countries that surfaced, for instance, during the kosher slaughtering and circumcision debates, and intensified when Jewish property looted by the Nazis reappears as a national issue.

A significant number of politicians, leaders, and officials who expressed anti-Semitic opinions, slurs and the like in public (at least 15 during 2013), were forced to resign, or did so on their own accord.
The second conclusion is that anti-Zionism, which is rampant in the west, the rise of right-wing extremist parties (each having its own wider agenda), the economic crisis that started already in 2008 – these factors cannot explain the present level of anti-Semitism, the report stipulates. No large scale military conflict occurred between Israel and the Arabs in 2013, or an attack such as the one on the Toulouse Jewish school in March 2012­ that generated a wave of more violence.

The report's conclusion on the tidal wave of anti-Semitism is that the present anti-Semitic phenomenon is not dependent on external events. "In short, what we witness in 2013 is classic ‘net anti-Semitism’ per se," the report said.

(Scroll down for video) A man threatened employees at a Baskin-Robbins, with a syringe that was allegedly filled with AIDS, police in Oregon said.

Portland Police said that they are looking to arrest and charge the man, who walked into the ice cream shop at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, and threatened workers with the hypodermic needle.

The man used the syringe in order to steal an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing on foot. “The guy just walked in and said: ‘This is a robbery, This is a needle full of AIDS,’ and ‘Open the cash drawer.’ I did,” Katharine Pepin, who was working at the store during the robbery, said.

The 19-year-old employee saw what seemed like a hypodermic needle that was filled with a bloody substance. Pepin called police after the man ran off.

Pepin returned to work the next day. Police said that they are looking for a white man in his 20s, who is about 5 feet 9 inches tall with brown hair. He wore glasses and bright clothes.

By: Aarav Sen

A man was arrested after spraying women with a smelly substance, which turned out to be his own urine.

Ian Wilson, 56, of the United Kingdom, has been ordered to pay £50 (about $84) to each of the two women after squirting them using a plastic toy water gun, while they were shopping.

Wilson, who runs an Internet marketing business from his home in Blackburn, Lancashire, slipped behind the victims in broad daylight and sprayed them with his urine.

Wilson told officers that he could offer no explanation for his strange behavior. Two days after his arrest, Wilson was admitted to the psychiatric unit of the Royal Blackburn Hospital, where he was treated for three weeks.

At the Blackburn Magistrates Court, Wilson pleaded guilty to two counts of common assault. The court heard that when the incident took place after Wilson’s relationship with his wife had broken down and he was suffering from a mental breakdown.

His lawyer, Imran Hussain, said that Wilson had suffered from depression and sought help for his condition. “He is deeply ashamed of what he did on that day,” Hussain said.

In court, Wilson was ordered to pay the women and was given a conditional discharge for three months.

(Scroll down for video) A large ape was seen on video doing the unthinkable, a video uploaded to YouTube showed.

The video, which was uploaded by the BBC, showed how Kanzi loves cooking with fire.

The ape even learned how to build a fire on its own. One of the most remarkable moments on the video focused on the skills of Kanzi using matches to ignite the fire.

In the clip, the bonobo is seen breaking large branches and twigs, stacking them loosely in a pile, opening a matchbox, selecting one match, striking the match on the box and setting the twigs on fire.

The ape then carefully puts a marshmallow on a stick and places it on the fire for a quick roast. When the marshmallow is perfectly roasted the ape eats it.

According to reports, Kanzi has learned to communicate with humans using symbols. Bonobos, one of the closest relatives of humans, are classified as endangered species.
