New Discoveries in Israel (Israel-Jews)
Israel 21C Newsletter describes new discoveries made in Israel----medical breakthroughs, agricultural innovations, etc. You can sign up to receive it in your e-mail or just visit the site to read about new things. Today I was reading about how they are working to stop the spread of a wheat fungus called Ug99. A stem rust fungus discovered in Uganda in 1999, it has spread through the Horn of Africa and is moving north. It is able to attack 70% of the wheat varieties around the world. Botanists at Tel Aviv U teamed up with researchers at University of Minnesota and discovered a particular Israeli plant (Sharon goatgrass) that is resistant to this fungus. It may take five years to perfect their work in transferring the resistance.
Israel was once desolate, but Ezekiel, Zechariah, and Isaiah foretold that it would become fruitful again like the "Garden of Eden" (Ezekiel 36:35). Since 1900, there have been about 200 million trees planted in Israel. They export fruits (see Zechariah 8:12-13). Here is the link for the newsletter.
