Israel in the World

This colorful volume takes an in-depth look at a remarkable achievement: how one small and very young country has successfully become one of the world's technological leaders.

From agriculture to medicine, Israel stands right at the forefront of technological development. Learn about the country's many achievements and breakthoughs, and how it's poised to remain on the industrial cutting edge in the foreseeable future. The countless accomplishments outlined here would be dazzling, even if they hadn't emerged from a nation that didn't even exist 60 years ago: Israel created the ICQ chat facility that is now used by hundreds of millions of internet surfers each day; the technology that allows you to leave voicemail messages on a mobile phone; the medical diagnostic equipment (including magnetic resonance imaging) found in most hospitals; and the surveillance equipment that alerts security officials to suspicious activities at airports. Find out about the people who made such progress possible; the educational system that allowed these citizens, many of them recent immigrants, to reach their full potential; and how Israel uses its knowledge for the well-being of the world.

If you would like to catalog and add Israel in the World to your library’s collection, please send us an e-mail with your name, the library’s shipping information, and phone. Please accept the CD as a DONATION as long as our supply lasts.

Israel aids flood victims, cancer patients, poor Latinos; world yawns
Israel extends "disproportionate" kindness to the world.
by Stephen M. Flatow,

The writer, a New Jersey attorney, is the father of Alisa Flatow, who was murdered by Palestinian terrorists in 1995 on a study trip to Israel when the bus she was on exploded on her way to the beach in Gush Katif.. When Flatow succumbed to fatal head wounds at Soroka Medical Center, the family donated her organs to save the lives of others.

Have you ever noticed how so much of what Israel does benefits the international community? Just this past week, Israel aided earthquake victims in Italy and flood victims in the United States, made an important breakthrough in the fight against cancer, and extended desperately-needed assistance to a beleaguered Third World country.

The international community didn't notice any of that... Read the full story...

Jewish Student Files Complaint Against Houston High School... 8/24/2016

Jewish Student Files Complaint Against Houston High School for Failing to Discipline Antisemitic Activists (INTERVIEW)
by Lea Speyer

A Jewish student who filed a discrimination complaint against his high school accused administrators of not taking his grievances seriously because they were “mixing their political bias and their roles as disciplinarians.”

Eliav Terk — a recent graduate of Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston, Texas — told The Algemeiner on Tuesday that, during a nine-month controversy surrounding the actions of anti-Israel classmates, “The administration systematically attempted to silence me and disregard my complaint.”

Terk was referring to an event that took place last November, during the public school’s annual International Festival... Read the full story...

McGill Student Warns Incoming Freshmen About ‘Disheartening’ Reality.. 8/24/2016

McGill Student Warns Incoming Freshmen About ‘Disheartening’ Reality of Being Jewish on Campus
by Lea Speyer

A Canadian Jewish student issued a warning Tuesday to incoming pro-Israel freshmen about the harsh reality they will likely face on campus for their religious and political identities.

In an op-ed published by the Washington Post, Molly Harris — a third-year McGill University student — wrote about being singled out by anti-Israel groups and many of her “liberal peers” for her campus advocacy on behalf of the Jewish state.

“I’ve been called a ‘Zionist b****.’ I’ve been told several times that Jews haven’t suffered… I’ve seen my friends mocked for their Judaism in crude, hateful language on popular anonymous social media platforms,” Harris wrote.

During one attempt to raise awareness about campus antisemitism, Harris said, she was told by a student publication that the topic had already been covered in the “mainstream Zionist media.”

Harris warned that SOCIAL-JUSTICE ORGANIZATIONS — which, she said, share many values with the Jewish community — have aligned themselves with the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and have “excluded” Jewish students from their ranks.

She stated that activists continue to “propagate the idea that Zionism underpins many of the world’s problems, as well as claim that Jews have no right to feel connected to Israel and that any Jew who does feel a connection to his or her religious homeland is part of the problem.”

“As a Zionist, this can be extremely disheartening — why should you be alienated from a cause because you believe Israel has a right to exist?” she wrote.

Jewish students must “prepare” themselves and understand that the “years to come will be challenging,” added Harris... Read the full story...

My Father Was A Poster Boy

Vivienne Grace Ziner is a vociferous and outspoken activist, advocate, writer and speaker for international human rights, the global advancement

My father, John Ziner z’l” (Czinner Janos in Hungarian), was born in the twilight years of The Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Born in 1910, to a wealthy and established Jewish Hungarian family in Budapest, he was the quintessential “Poster Boy” for emancipated European Jewry.

Wealthy, handsome, worldly and debonair, popular and well established, he epitomized the privilege that Napoleon’s emancipation of European Jews had created for them.

By the mid 1850’s, progressive European countries were opening their ghettos and removing their anti-Jewish restrictive laws, thereby allowing their Jews to become educated, to become lawyers and doctors, merchants and business people... Read the full story...

Well-meaning but misguided activists shield their bigotry with moral fraud.

As yet another indication that the university campus has become “an island of repression in a sea of freedom,” last March a pro-Israel group, Hasbara Fellowships Canada, was barred from participating in a “Social Justice Week” event organized by the Student Association of Durham College and University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT)...

UK: A Tale of Two Inquiries
by Douglas Murray

Now someone has "leaked" the full Royall report, which shows that students at the Oxford University Labour club who were Jewish were subjected to frequent anti-Semitism. And this makes clear that the Labour party clearly attempted to cover-up the negative findings of an inquiry that they themselves had commissioned.

In an interview aired July 20, Shami Chakrabarti was specifically asked about whether she had been offered a seat in the House of Lords (peerage) before writing her report... Read the full story...

Campus Watchdog: Jewish Students Single Largest Target of Systematic Suppression of Civil Rights at American Universities (INTERVIEW)
by Lea Speyer

Jewish college students are the largest university population “coming under systematic attack,” with an increasing number seeing their civil rights infringed upon, the head of a campus watchdog group told The Algemeiner on Tuesday.

Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, co-founder of the AMCHA Initiative — which combats, monitors and documents antisemitism at institutions of higher education in America — made the comment following the release of a shocking new report revealing the dramatic rise of antisemitic activity across more than 100 US college campuses between January and June 2016.

According to the report, anti-Israel and anti-Zionist groups on campus “have become significantly more brazen in both their strategy and tactics,” which has contributed greatly to an increase in antisemitic activity.

Dramatic findings of the report include: antisemitic incidents on college campuses increased by 45 percent as compared with the same time period in 2015; the suppression of Jewish students’ freedom of speech and assembly doubled, while calls for Israel’s elimination tripled... Read the full story...
