"Whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.
- Jerusalem Talmud, Sanhedrin 4:8 (37a)

You gotta love this story out of Israel, what with the Druze Likudnik heartily endorsing the great works of the Efrat organization.

I don't know why it took me so long to blog about them, but Efrat is really doing the Lord's work in Israel, as you can see. I have donated to them a few times, I think it is for the best of causes!

On the darker side of this story...Can you imagine that 40,000 babies a year are aborted in Israel? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THOSE PEOPLE? Don't they know that their enemies openly plan a "population bomb" war against them, and this just plays into their hands? Not to mention the MORAL issue here--let's put it this way, if you want God to look favorably on your nation, do you think aborting your infants is a good way to go about it?

Anyway, blessings and prayers for Efrat, and all their great work!

Druze Deputy Minister Offers to Help Jewish Pro-Life Group
Iyar 11, 5769, 05 May 09 02:51by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz (IsraelNN.com)
Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud), a Druze Israeli, declared his intention to do whatever he could to assist the pro-life Efrat organization. He made the commitment following a personal tour of the organization's Jerusalem facilities on Sunday.

"I cannot believe what I see here," Kara enthusiastically said after hearing about Efrat and its activities combating what the organization sees as unnecessary abortions. "There is no other organization of this high caliber in the country. They are literally saving lives here and, in that, assisting the nation in confronting the demographic problem," he added.

"I will assist you in every possible way that I can," Kara told Efrat Chairman Dr. Eli Schussheim. "You will yet hear from me. The whole country needs to know about the great and unbelievable thing that you are doing. I am really moved by what I see here."

Efrat was established in 1977 by Dr. Schussheim, an Argentinian immigrant who served as senior surgeon in Jerusalem's Shaarei Tzedek Hospital during the Six Day War. The organization provides information on abortion that might not otherwise be seen by pregnant women, as well as financial and emotional assistance to expecting mothers who are considering terminating their pregnancies for reasons other than medical necessity.

In his presentation to Deputy Minister Kara, Dr. Shussheim discussed the database of over 4,000 Israeli women currently receiving financial aid from Efrat. The meaning of that figure, Shussheim said, is that the organization is saving the lives of over 4,000 children annually by means of economic assistance alone.

MK Ayoub Kara--NOT "Jewicidal"!
