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.

New Study: Palestinian Educational Materials Even More Radical Than Before 9/4/2019

New Study: Palestinian Educational Materials Even More Radical Than Before, Celebrate Jihad and Terrorism, Delegitimize Israel
by Benjamin Kerstein

A study has found that new Palestinian educational materials to be used during the 2019-2020 school year have, despite considerable international criticism, become even more ridden with anti-Israel and sometimes antisemitic propaganda.

According to the group IMPACT-se, which evaluated the materials according to the standards of the UN cultural body UNESCO, the materials contain “a systematic insertion of violence, martyrdom and jihad across all grades and subjects.”

The materials “indoctrinate for death and martyrdom, utilizing a variety of tools to convince children to risk their lives as martyrs,” the group noted.

“Throughout the textbooks for all grades, the need for continuous struggle is stressed — using terminology like revolution, uprising, ribat and jihad, not only as part of a national struggle but also as a way of teaching and invoking extremist religious beliefs as a central goal of this curriculum,” IMPACT-se stated.

Israeli library displays last batch of Obtained Kafka works 8/7/2019

Israeli library displays last batch of obtained Kafka works
by Press Association

Israel’s National Library has unveiled a batch of previously unseen personal letters, illustrations, diaries and handwritten manuscripts belonging to famed author Franz Kafka.

After a lengthy legal saga, the papers arrived from a Swiss bank two weeks ago with roughly 100 other artifacts.

The released materials are the final unseen portion of a collection inherited by Max Brod, Kafka’s long-time friend and editor, and the publication marks the end of an 11-year battle in court.

Although the collection does not include substantial unpublished work by Kafka, researchers believe it will help shed light on the life and thinking of one of the most influential writers of the 20th century.

Kafka's Rare Manuscripts: From The Vault in Switzerland to the Library in Jerusalem
The newly arrived documents include Kafka's manuscripts of the uncompleted story "Wedding Preparations in the Country", a notebook for learning Hebrew, hundreds of personal letters, sketches, and more

“We are very happy for this moment, finally, after almost 12 years of legal proceedings, many travels and treasure hunts, to bring Max Brod’s estate with papers of Franz Kafka to Jerusalem,” said Oren Weinberg, the director of Israel’s National Library.

He said the release fulfilled Brod’s wishes to make the materials publicly accessible and enhances research on the influential author.

Kafka, a German-speaking Jew from Prague, was a little-known writer when he died of tuberculosis in 1924 at the age of 40... Read the full story...
