Another miracle from Israel? Prostate cancer cure in 20 minutes

One in six American men will develop prostate cancer.  It is the most common cancer after skin cancer, and the second biggest cancer killer for men.  Two Israeli scientists at the Weizmann Institute in Israel promise an almost miraculous cure, now in clinical trials at New York’s Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.  It is the culmination of 20 years of basic research by plant scientist Avigdor Scherz and cancer researcher Yoram Saloman.

Professor Scherz took a naturally occurring form of chlorophyll from aquatic bacteria:

… chemically modified by Prof. Scherz's lab at Weizmann to fit the team's pharmaceutical needs. Once the photosensitized drug is injected, it meets up with the second crucial element in this therapy—light—at the targeted tumor site… from highly focused fiber-optic lasers that have been inserted near the tumor. As the chlorophyll absorbs the light, it can then interact with the third component in the process—oxygen—to produce oxygen radicals. This interaction initiates a fast cascade of pathophysiological events that cause instantaneous closing of the blood vessels leading to the tumor, followed by oxygen and nutrient deprivation at the tumor site, as well as other active processes that kill tumor cells. In 24 to 48 hours, the tumor undergoes complete necrosis.

The treatment, called vascular-targeted photodynamic therapy or VTP, is a one-time 20- to 30-minute procedure.  There have been no side effects in urination or sexual function. 

The Israeli team foresees applications for breast, ovary, lung, and pancreas tumors.  The latter has no effective treatment to date and has been a tragic death sentence.

As I read about these medical breakthroughs from Israel, my mind goes to Germany today, and yesteryear.  The Nazis killed off their Jewish citizens, their best and their brightest, out of envy, greed, and spite.    

Attracted by Nazi Jew-hatred, the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood allied with Hitler.  The Arabs’ price for their allegiance, valuable because of the promise of sabotaging the British in the oil fields of the Middle East, was to deny Europe’s 6 million Jews refuge in Palestine, their only lifeline.  Germany, Britain, and America under FDR had the same policy in this regard – do not upset the Muslim Brothers, it being preferable to let Europe’s Jews be wiped out by Hitler by forbidding Jews refuge in their own Palestinian Jewish homeland.  Divine justice has brought that evil decision back to haunt us.

The jihadi movement is Hitler’s enduring gift to us.  The Third Reich sent Eichmann to Egypt to train the Muslim Brothers in anti-Semitic propaganda, bomb-making, and other sabotage techniques, giving birth to the modern jihadi movement.  The Nazis built the Muslim Brothers up from ten thousand to a million members.  Ayatollah Khomeini listened to Nazi-Arab broadcasts from Berlin every day of the war years.  (Read my column on Hitler’s jihadi legacy here, and more from Dr. Matthias Kuntzel here). 

We are all suffering the consequences today.  We had a second chance.  If the world had stood behind Israel in the face of the post-war 60-year anti-Semitic Islamic onslaught seeking to destroy them, we would have marginalized and starved the jihadi movement long ago.  But Europe chose to indulge the Arabs in their Jew-hatred, only partly to kowtow to the oil-rich Arabs.  It was also Europeans’ pleasure, and the pleasure of European and American leftists in particular, to pretend the Jews were the bad guys.

Now Germany is inviting the jihadis out of their Middle Eastern hellhole and into their midst.  In her misguided invitation for the Muslim invasion of Europe, German chancellor Merkel is driving out the rest of Europe’s Jews, who are targeted by Europe’s hate-filled Arabs, and consigning Germany and Europe to cultural and demographic suicide.  The Arab population of Europe has been terrorizing Europe’s Jews and forcing the younger generation to flee for many years now, but the rest of Europe considered this acceptable.  The final tragic chapter in Europe’s self-destruction is at hand, with anti-Semitism at its core at every step.

And then my mind goes to the other side – all those lost Jewish lives.  Would cancer have been cured decades ago if not for the Nazi-Arab pact of evil that wiped out 6 million precious lives?  Jews undoubtedly have genetic gifts, but much of their cultural flowering is from Judaism itself, a religion that fosters reading, thinking, and debating – in other words, individualism and freedom.  Merkel is instituting the final purge of Judaism from Europe and substituting a million followers of "submission" (that’s the translation of the name Islam).   

Luckily, this time around, the Jews of Europe do have a place to flee and to flourish, and to develop their gifts of life for the benefit of the rest of us.  Men over sixty have a special reason to be grateful to Israel this week.
