The anti-Semitic attack in Monsey, New York, on the 7th night of Hanukkah last night is horrific. We must all come together to fight, confront, and eradicate the evil scourge of anti-Semitism. Melania and I wish the victims a quick and full recovery.


2………..> Not So Fast: China Gene Editing Halted


Chinese scientist He Jiankui, the inventor of the world’s first “gene-edited” babies process by altering human embryos in 2018, was  convicted on charges of practicing medicine illegally, sentenced to three years and fined 3 million yuan ($614,400).

He  used a tool called CRISPR to alter a gene in embryos to resist infection, a procedure that sparked a global debate over the ethics of gene editing, shared by other scientists, one being Zhang Renli, who was sentenced to two years in prison and fined 1 million yuan ( $204,810), and the other Qin Jinzhou received an 18-month sentence with a two-year reprieve and a 500,000 yuan fine ($ 102,450).
and how it works.

He shocked the scientific world when he announced in November 2018 that he had helped make the world’s first genetically edited babies, twin girls born in the same month.


3…………> Arabian Nights Revisited: Israel Find


A jug full of 1,200-year old gold coins, one being a dinar from the reign of Caliph Harun al-Rashid, the legendary Abbasid ruler mentioned in “Arabian Nights”, was recently discovered by a team of Israeli archaeologists working at an excavation in the city of Yavne, just before” the Hanukkah festival, during the excavation conducted in the area prior to the construction of a new neighborhood.

“The hoard also includes coins that are rarely found in Israel,” one researcher remarked.

“These are gold dinars issued by the Aghlabid dynasty that ruled in North Africa, in the region of modern Tunisia, on behalf of the Abbasid Caliphate centered in Baghdad.”


4…………> Bloody 1st Amendment: Egyptian Style


A leading Egyptian human rights lawyer Gamal Eid said he was attacked by up to a dozen men, waiting for him in three cars parked on the corner, as he attempted to flag down a taxi near his home in the capital’s Maadi district.

The men beat him, threatened him with pistols and threw paint on his face and clothes, and when neighbors tried to intervene, the men drew weapons and told them to leave.

Mr. Eid, the executive director of the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANRHI), believes the men were policemen or acting under the direction of a security forces officer, and the state-owned news website Akhbar al-Youm quoted anonymous “informed sources” as saying the assault against Mr. Eid was “planned by anti-Egypt evil forces”.

Sarah Leah Whitson of Human Rights Watch (HRW) said the latest attack “has the fingerprints of Egyptian security forces all over it”.

“Repeated attacks against one of Egypt’s leading rights activists raises grave concerns about the possible involvement of Egypt’s leadership,” she said.


5………….> Stop The Smog Now: Bank Of England Chief


“I would say we’re in a climate crisis… action needs to be taken. The world will face irreversible heating unless firms shift their priorities soon”, the outgoing head of the Bank of England Mark Carney said, pointing out that the financial sector had begun to curb investment in fossil fuels – but far too slowly.

He said leading pension fund analysis “is that if you add up the policies of all of companies out there, they are consistent with warming of 3.7-3.8C, far more than the 1.5C want and governments are demanding”.

Scientists say the risks associated with an increase of 4C include a nine meter rise in sea levels – affecting up to 760 million people – searing heatwaves and droughts, and serious food supply problems.
