Boycott the Jews? You will die
Truth is the best disenfectant.
The boycott threat is endangering the Jewish people. Universities, pension funds, commercial chains, newspapers: there is an anti-Semitic offensive around the world.
Let's see what would happen if the anti-Semites would really boycott "everything Jewish", as Ayatollah Khamenei said.
If you contracted syphilis, you could not be cured by salvarsan since it was discovered by a Jew, Paul Ehrlich.
If you contracted gonorrhea, you could not seek diagnosis, because the method is named after a Jew, Albert Neissner.
If you had heart disease you could not use Digitalis, because it was discovered by a Jew, Ludwig Traube.
A toothache? No, because Novocaine was discovered by two Jews, Widal and Weil.
Diabetes? You will die soon because Insulin is the result of research by a Jew, Oskar Minkowsky.
You cannot get the anti polio vaccine, because it bears a Jew's name, Jonas Salk.
You must also die of Tuberculosis because a Jew, Zalman Waxman, invented the drug for it.
No hope for cancer because one of the most important tumor suppressor genes was cloned by scientists at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot (defective copies of this gene are found in more than half of all human cancers).
No chance to be saved from the "Mad Cow" disease, because Israel developed the diagnosis in Creutzfeldt Jakob genetic disease in humans with a urine test instead of a brain biopsy.
Did you get the West Nile virus? Forget the Israeli vaccine.
Forget chemotherapy that extends the lives of cancer patients, kidney dialysis machines, cardiac pacemakers or Hepatitis B vaccine.
The Muslim fanatics and their Western anti-Semitic friends can only dream of having a tiny fraction of the brain power of these Jewish scholars.
And I say it to a genius like Stephen Hawking as well, who approved the boycott of the Jewish State. Maybe he is alive because of Israeli technology. The same for Mahmoud Abbas' wife, who has just visited an Israeli hospital. Such hypocrisy.
How many Nobel prizes have the Muslims collected? 7.
How many prizes for the Jews? Of the 850 Nobel Prize winners, 177 have been Jewish and several were born in Israel. 20 % of them have gone to Jews.
This is not racism and Israel has plenty of dullards and morons. But the price a real anti-Jewish boycott would cost can give you an idea of what kind of war Israel is fighting: civilization against darkness.
If Israel and the Jews, who make up just 0,2 % of humanity, fall again, the world will be darker and meaningless.
If 6,000,000 Jews would not have perished in the Holocaust, can you imagine how much richer the world would be?
