Israeli Company signs deal to bring “meat from heaven” to the European market

by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz | Oct 20, 2022 |

An Israeli company is expanding operations, selling plant-based meat alternatives to gourmet outlets in Europe. Some opinions maintain that vegetarianism is a Biblical idea while others compare high-tech proteins to “meat from Heaven” described in a Talmudic parable.

Redefine Meat, an Israeli company, announced this week that they have partnered with the prestigious meat importer, Monaco-based Giraudi Meats. The start-up, located in Rehovot south of Tel Aviv, raised $170 million in a series A financing round this year and opened a new factory in the Netherlands which will help the company achieve its production goal of 15 tons a day.  Its 3-D printed “New Meat” is made from ingredients including soy and pea proteins, chickpeas, beetroot, nutritional yeasts, and coconut fat. 

Plant-based meat alternatives are considered to be better for animals and the environment but the partnership with the gourmet meat purveyor emphasizes the company’s claim that its product is not a compromise or a meat substitute intended for vegans. Its product list includes tenderloin, striploin, lamb flank, premium burger, and lamb kebab. New Meat is currently available in Israel, Britain, the Netherlands, and Germany in almost 1,000 restaurants that are currently paying about $40 per kilo for Redefine Meat’s steak cuts.  

A known powerhouse in high-tech, Israel is quickly becoming a leader in alternative meat and is ranked second in the absolute number of alternative protein companies, lagging behind the US. Israel companies pulled in over $114 million in investments in the field in 2020. Good Food Institute’s (GFI) Israel report found that Israeli startups raised over $320 million in the first six months of 2022. This is expected to grow at a rate of over 150 percent each year, reaching $155 billion by 2027.

Historians reveal Israel’s use of poison against Palestinians

October 15, 2022

By Nasim Ahmed
The details of Israel’s secret use of biological weapons and poison against Palestinians during the 1947/48 ethnic cleansing campaign has been revealed in a recent article by historians Benny Morris and Benjamin Kedar. The 84-year-old Kedar is professor emeritus at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the more well-known Morris is famed for his work as one of Israel’s “New Historians”. This group of Israeli scholars, including Professors Ilan Pappe and Avi Shlaim, dismantled the occupation state’s official narrative about its creation in 1948 and the birth of the Palestinian refugee crisis. However, unlike his fellow historians, Morris went on to become a rather controversial figure for adopting morally questionable positions in defense of Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

“I find myself as convinced as ever that the Israelis played a major role in ridding the country of tens of thousands of Arabs during the 1948 war,” said Morris in an article in the Los Angeles Times about the controversy surrounding his book, The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, 1947-1949. “For unearthing that dark side of 1948,” Morris said that he was vilified by the “Zionist establishment.” He was accused of shattering the founding myths of the Israeli state and lending moral weight to the Palestinian cause. Morris rejected the claim as “untrue” and explained that he “was simply a historian seeking to describe what happened.”

Affirming his commitment to Zionism, however, Morris went on to defend Israel’s ethnic cleansing. “I also believe their [Israeli] actions were inevitable and made sense” said Morris before giving his justification for why Israel had to expel three quarters of the indigenous non-Jewish, Muslim and Christian Palestinians. “Had the belligerent Arab population inhabiting the areas destined for Jewish statehood not been uprooted, no Jewish state would have arisen, or it would have emerged so demographically and politically hobbled that it could not have survived. It was an ugly business. Such is history.”

Morris’s argument is typical of many Israelis who find themselves trapped between the truths about Israel’s creation and remaining committed to the Zionist cause. Some abandon the ideology which preserves a Jewish ethno-nationalist state in historic Palestine because of the moral dilemma it presents. Others continue to insist that the Zionist cause supersedes all moral and ethical considerations, even if that means justifying ethnic cleansing, racism and the crime of apartheid.

In light of his background, Morris’s take on Israel’s use of biological weapons and poison is all the more interesting. His article with Kedar – “‘Cast Thy Bread’: Israeli Biological Warfare during the 1948 War” – was published by Middle Eastern Studies. According to Haaretz, the article is a rarity because it was researched and published against the wishes of the Israeli security establishment, which has tried for years to block any embarrassing historical documents that expose war crimes against Arabs, such as murdering prisoners, ethnic cleansing and destroying villages. Moreover, the article is based on original documents stored in the Israel State Archive as well as other archives.

The article provides details of how scientists from the Scientific Corps, together with battlefield units, were involved in a systematic campaign to poison water wells and spread typhoid bacteria in Arab villages and cities as well as among the invading armies of Egypt and Jordan. The objective was to frighten the Arab-Palestinian population, to force them to leave and to weaken the Arab armies. It is claimed that the use of biological warfare was approved by the founder of the Israeli state and its first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion.

Among the examples of the use of poison discussed in the article is the deployment of typhoid germs sent in bottles to the southern front. Morris and Kedar shed light on the Israeli soldiers sent with the poison to Acre and the Galilee village of Ilabun. According to British, Arab and Red Cross documents, dozens of local residents of Acre were poisoned and became severely ill. An unknown number of them died.

The same method is also said to have been used in Gaza in May 1948, a week after Israel proclaimed its independence. Apparently two Jewish soldiers from a Special Forces unit posed as Arabs and infiltrated Gaza with tubes containing the typhoid germs. Their mission was to poison the local water supply to stop the advance of the Egyptian army. However, they were arrested and tortured, and then sentenced to death by an Egyptian military court in August 1948.

The use of biological weapons has been illegal for nearly a century, since the 1925 Geneva Protocol. This prohibits the use of chemical and biological weapons in international armed conflicts. Although Israel, Egypt, Somalia, Eritrea and Comoros have refused to commit to the protocol, 183 other states have done so.

While Israel has never publicly admitted to the use of chemical weapons it has been caught red-handed on several occasions. One such was the botched attempt to assassinate Palestinian political leader Khaled Meshaal in Amman, on 25 September, 1997. The brazen attempt on the life of the then 41-year-old head of the Hamas Political Bureau sparked a diplomatic row which threatened to wreck the peace deal between Jordan and Israel. The crisis ended with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu making a number of humiliating concessions.

A six-member Mossad team arrived in Amman a week before the assassination using false Canadian passports. The plan was clear: kill the exiled Hamas leader using a lethal toxin without leaving any trace of the killers. The idea was that after the toxin had been administered covertly, Meshaal would go about the rest of his day as normal and then, when tiredness overcame him, he would take a nap, never to wake up again; he was expected to die within 48 hours. Two of the Mossad agents delivered the toxin as planned but were captured by Meshaal’s bodyguard while trying to flee from the scene.

Hours after the arrest of the agents, the Israelis hatched a plan to diffuse the situation. With the diplomatic consequence of his actions dawning on him, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attempted to conceal the botched assassination attempt from the rest of the world. He dispatched Mossad head Danni Yatom to plead with King Hussain of Jordan for the agents’ release. He failed to diffuse the situation and instead sparked a diplomatic crisis with the Hashemite Kingdom, which had normalized relations with the Zionist state three years earlier. The King had gone out on a limb to sign a peace treaty with Israel against the wishes of his people. Following pressure from the US and under the threat to the peace treaty, the Israelis delivered the antidote. Meshaal was saved with just hours to spare.

Nobody should be too surprised, therefore, at the fact that Israel used biological weapons against the Palestinians in 1948. The occupation state also has nuclear weapons, which it has never allowed to be inspected by the International Atomic Energy Agency, or anyone else for that matter. In short, the state is a depository for weapons of mass destruction and has used them against Palestinian civilians.

Has Israel been sanctioned, invaded and occupied by the West as a result? Of course not. Yet again, the West’s hypocrisy on such matters has been exposed, this time by an unlikely duo: Benny Morris and Benjamin Kedar.

UN Votes 152 to 5 Telling Israel to Get Rid of Its Nuclear Weapons

The United Nations General Assembly voted overwhelmingly, 152 to 5, to tell the Israeli apartheid regime to get rid of its nuclear weapons, which are illegal under international law.

 

The vast majority of countries on Earth voted in the United Nations General Assembly to condemn the Israeli apartheid regime for having nuclear weapons, in flagrant violation of international law.

Israel is the only country in West Asia that has nukes. Tel Aviv has not officially acknowledged its possession of the planet-destroying weapons, but experts estimate it has at least 90 nuclear warheads, and perhaps hundreds.

On October 28, a staggering 152 countries (79% of all UN member states) adopted a resolution that called on Israel to give up its atomic bombs, join the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to supervise its nuclear facilities.

I think I'm with Israel on this one. Why should the globalist UN pick them out individually when there's plenty of other countries with nukes too? I could understand it if they had a resolution on multilateral disarmament for every nuclear power, but unilateral disarmament? Wind your neck in. We should leave the UN.

The issue is that Israel denies having them, unlike every other country that has them, which is breach of International Law.

l'd have to go check the name...( Mordechai Vanunu  )...but a whistle blower who told the world that Israel had developed atomic / nuclear weapons was illegally kidnapped from Italy.....and put on trial in Israel with his teeth wired up so he couldn't talk.

And - By not acknowledging possession of nuclear weapons, Israel avoids a US legal prohibition on funding countries that proliferate weapons of mass destruction. Such an admission would prevent Israel from receiving over $2 billion each year in military and other aid from Washington.


Really really not good.

@legion  ah yes I remember the Mordecai Vanunu story. Not good, but I don't see the answer as unilateral disarmament. It looks like Israel only has nukes for themselves, they're not proliferating to other countries are they? Israel could simply admit to their nuclear arsenal. The US policy, as a nuclear power itself, doesn't make sense to me. To be consistent they'd have to stop funding themselves or do unilateral disarmament first, before they stopped funding anyone else.  

 

This is also why I don't get the campaign against Iran having nukes too, when it's mostly nuclear powers trying to stop them.

The more I think about it, the more that things like the non-proliferation treaty and international aid ( civil and military) looks like a scheme to keep small countries dependent on the superpowers and compromise their independence. Preventing places like Ukraine and Taiwan having them makes them rely on the US and effectively become part of the empire. 
 
We were told that MAD, mutually assured destruction, from nukes has kept the peace in Europe since WW2 so we need them. But there's a different rule for others. 
 
And now they're trying to bring in "international law", which implies international courts and international government. Ie a single authority merging together the superpowers. No wonder the left like it to deal with the middle east: problem/reaction/solution again.

The most charitable explanation I have is that the powers are being pragmatic and applying the maxim of 'the end justifies the means'. Instead of consistent moral principles we have contradictions and double standards.

 

In which case we have to ask ourselves what are the real ends they are working towards. Of course by their own actions they have created a precedent that lying is acceptable ("Israel doesn't have nukes" justifies the ends) so we have to take everything else with a pinch of salt. 

 I'm not only referring to the US-Israel relationship here of course, many other countries use this so-called "diplomacy".

Empty words from Keir Starmer because he knows full well he and nobody else will do anything

about the continued theft of Palestinian land, with Jewish settlements.

 

David and Gareth Icke used to support BDS totally a few years ago (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions),

but have been very quiet of late. Why is that Gareth? genune question.

 

@GarethIcke

 

 

 

  Maybe the Icke's want to keep their platforms for free speech. As we can see recently David has been banned from speaking freely, even travelling freely... so if we were in their shoes we would be trying to save the platform by any means. If that means toning down what they say while it is readily known from previous speeches how they feel then we should give them space to maintain a status quo in order to continue. They are clearly on David's ass now and have put a two year restriction on him in certain areas. But while he has a platform he can continue his work.

 

We all know the The Balfour Treaty was and is a corrupt treaty. Palestine was not Britains to give away. Thats a fact. The settlers (claimed to be Israeli settlers) stole Palestinian lands, their homes and sometimes killed them. Those Palestinians that left were never allowed to return. They fled the 'war' created by the'Israelis' or whoever was really chasing them out. They put the possessions they could carry in their clothing, often sewn in, and headed to Jordan or Lebanon areas... I have this from Palestinians who were robbed of their homeland, their homes and their possessions...and more importantly in many cases of their families. This whole business makes me sick...

Revealed: The Former Israeli Spies Working in Top Jobs at Google, Facebook and Microsoft

October 31st, 2022

Studying employment databases, MintPress has ascertained that hundreds of agents from Israeli military intelligence and spying organization Unit 8200 are now employed in influential roles in many of the world’s largest tech and communications companies, including Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Amazon. 

A MintPress study has found that hundreds of former agents of the notorious Israeli spying organization, Unit 8200, have attained positions of influence in many of the world’s biggest tech companies, including Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Amazon.

The Israeli Defense Forces’ (IDF) Unit 8200 is infamous for surveilling the indigenous Palestinian population, amassing kompromat on individuals for the purposes of blackmail and extortion. Spying on the world’s rich and famous, Unit 8200 hit the headlines last year, after the Pegasus scandal broke. Former Unit 8200 officers designed and implemented software that spied on tens of thousands of politicians and likely aided in the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

 

Google

According to employment website LinkedIn, there are currently at least 99 former Unit 8200 veterans currently working for Google. This number almost certainly underestimates the scale of the collaboration between the two organizations, however. For one, this does not count former Google employees. Nor does it include those without a public LinkedIn account, or those who do have an account, but have not disclosed their previous affiliations with the high-tech Israeli surveillance unit. This is likely to be a considerable number, as agents are expressly prohibited from ever revealing their affiliation to Unit 8200. Thus, the figure of 99 only represents the number of current (or extremely recent) Google employees who are brazenly flouting Israeli military law by including the organization in their profiles.

Among these include:

Gavriel Goidel: Between 2010 and 2016, Goidel served in Unit 8200, rising to become Head of Learning at the organization, leading a large team of operatives who sifted through intelligence data to “understand patterns of hostile activists”, in his own words, transmitting that information to superiors. Whether this included any of the over 1000 Gazan civilians Israel killed during their 2014 bombardment of Gaza is unknown. Goidel was recently appointed Head of Strategy and Operations at Google.

Jonathan Cohen: Cohen was a team leader during his time in Unit 8200 (2000-2003). He has since spent more than 13 years working for Google in various senior positions, and is currently Head of Insights, Data and Measurement.

Low birth rate is one of the western features which Israel doesn't copy.   We in the west have been programmed to think that we can't afford to have more children, but when you look at the birth_rate figures, it's the poorest countries which have the highest birth rates. Which is where many of those migrants are coming from.

its only white people that mustn't have children......meanwhile migrants are flooded in and given housing, free healthcare, free education and free money to help them procreate without even having to work for a living

I think second and third generation migrants aren't having any children either, specially the more westernized ones. There seems to be something about the western urban lifestyle that makes people collectively suicidal. I wonder if our "owners" know something we don't and if that's the reason they seek to replace populations.

they know that we have a sense of national identity and cultural identity and a history and tradition of common law and christian morality

 

they want all that gone to create 'tabula rasa' (blank slate) people which they can then mould into global citizens on the technocratic slave plantation

 

it makes perfect sense why posh neo-marxist climate activists would attack old artwork because they are post-modern, mind controlled slaves whose handlers want to wipe the slate of europe clean. They don't want our culture and art to survive. They don't want anything that reminds us of who we are and where we came from. This was what orwells '1984' was portraying with everything being thrown down the memory hole
