Taming the desert for sustainable agriculture in Israel.

… I don’t share the idea that the greatness of the Jews has nothing to do with the achievement of any prophecy. Quite the opposite, his iron-cast dedication can solely be attributed to reach the face of all odds. It’s unusual to attribute Einstein’s success to any explicit blessing when man by no means believed in God or supplied any prayer in his whole lifetime.

Earlier than I traveled to Israel, I believed that Jews’ unprecedented achievements in all areas of human endeavor have been as a result of they have been anointed by God however after spending three days there the concept disappeared. I noticed issues for myself. First, milk and honey usually are not flowing of their nation. It’s a desert the place there’s a extreme scarcity of rainfall and water.

For agriculture, they’re largely depending on irrigation. Jews are extraordinarily hardworking, resourceful and progressive. They’re decided to rise above the challenges of their atmosphere. Jews usually are not Christians however Jews. The principle distinction between Judaism and Christianity is their outright rejection of Jesus because the Messiah. They don’t imagine a single phrase of the New Testomony. There isn’t any New Testomony in his Bible.

Regardless of their hatred of Christianity and Jesus, they have been sensible sufficient to discover business alternatives for pilgrimage. Israel makes billions of {dollars} a 12 months by commercializing a perception or perception that they don’t share.

Jesus was not killed by the Roman rulers of Judea however by his fellow Jews, who noticed him as a risk to the spiritual institution. After greater than 2000 years, they nonetheless have not modified their thoughts about him.

Their progress has extra to do with the alternatives they make. Have a look at Donald Trump, he would not learn the Bible however he is aware of that to win elections in America, you could faux to share the feelings of evangelical Christians. That is precisely what he did.

In Nigeria, regardless of being endowed with huge pure and human assets, we don’t wish to achieve success by over-exploiting the assets. We’re dreamers hoping to succeed with out lifting our fingers. We’re miraculous pursuers who reduce corners as properly. This explains why there’s a enormous market in Nigeria for prophets, sorcerers, prophets and Pentecostal monks, who promise prosperity with out labor.

Japan was the primary nation on the planet to attain the feat of turning its title right into a model. When you see ‘Made in Japan’ on any product, you might be assured of its wonderful high quality. The Japanese are neither Christian, nor Muslim, nor Jewish. They achieved success as a result of they’re hardworking, resourceful, progressive and trustworthy. What about Singapore that has jumped from the Third World to the First World? I can go on and on.

Have a look at the United Arab Emirates (UAE): Dubai and Abu Dhabi are probably the most visited vacationer cities on the planet. This was unimaginable simply 20 years in the past.
