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.

UK’s National Student Union President Strikes Down Policy Allowing Jews to Appoint Representative to Anti-Racism Committee
by Lea Speyer

The controversial president of the UK’s National Union of Students (NUS) has found herself once again embroiled in controversy, after voting against a traditional practice regarding Jewish representation on a prominent committee.

NUS President Malia Bouattia — who has previously been accused of antisemitism — aroused ire when she broke a tie and voted against allowing Jewish students to appoint their own representative to the Anti-Racism, Anti-Fascism (ARAF) committee during a meeting of the NUS National Executive Committee (NEC) on Tuesday...

Danon: European applause killed Hallel-Yaffa

In an op-ed Danny Danon blames the European Parliament for encouraging Palestinian terrorism.
by Arutz Sheva Staff

In an op-ed published in Israel Hayom, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon said international tolerance for Palestinian incitement against Israel was partially to blame for the recent spate of killings by Arab terrorists.

Danon drew a clear line between the horrific murder of Hallel-Yaffa Ariel last week and the speech of Mahmoud to the European Parliament a week earlier.

In that speech, Abbas revived an old blood libel and claimed that some rabbis had called on the government of Israel to poison Palestinian water supplies... Read the full story...

Gaza rocket explodes in Sderot kindergarten

Rocket fired by Gaza terrorists explodes in the city of Sderot, causes damage but no injuries.
By Elad Benari, Canada

The "Red Alert" rocket siren was heard on Friday night in the Sderot and the Shaar Hanegev area of southern Israel.

A rocket fired by Gaza terrorists exploded a short time later in an empty kindergarten in the city of Sderot.

There were no injuries, but the building sustained damage.

Rocket and mortar fire from Gaza has continued to “trickle” into Israel on occasion despite a ceasefire which Gaza's Hamas rulers agreed to.

On May 6, two mortar shells fired from Gaza exploded near the security fence in the Eshkol Regional Council.

There were no physical injuries or damages... Read the full story...

Palestinian Authority Hails Terrorist Who Butchered 13-Year-Old Israeli Girl; Blames ‘Occupation’ for His Death
by Ruthie Blum

Official Palestinian Authority Channels lauded the terrorist who butchered a 13-year-old Israeli girl in her Kiryat Arba bedroom on Thursday morning.

In the immediate aftermath of the attack against Hallel Yaffe Ariel, the PA Health Ministry issued a death notice about her killer, the Hebrew news site nrg reported, which read: “We are officially announcing the death of the youth, Muhammed Nasser Taraiyre, 19, from the town of Bani Naim, after the occupation fired on him near the settlement of Charsina northeast of Hebron.”

Meanwhile, as was reported by Palestinian Media Watch, the official Facebook page of PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah faction promptly posted a picture of Taraiyre and declared him a “shahid” — martyr... Read the full story...

‘The Holocaust Is Justified’: What Syrian Refugees Learn in School
by Ariel Silbert and Charles Jacobs

There are perhaps few better ways to gauge the probable socio-cultural attitudes of Syrian nationals currently between the ages of young adulthood and late middle-age regarding Jews and Judaism than by examining the content of the state-issued textbooks comprising the curriculum for state-mandated education in Syria.

Although questions of methodology and practice are certainly important (e.g., “how” the material is taught), as are potentially “extra-curricular” sources of information (social media, etc.), the material itself is nevertheless central to a clear and accurate understanding of Syrian perceptions, within the cohort studied, regarding Jews and Judaism...

Op-Ed: Rocks thrown at Jews are "non violent." 6/22/2016

Rocks thrown at Jews are "non violent."
by Stephen M. Flatow

The writer, a New Jersey attorney, is the father of Alisa Flatow, who was murdered by Palestinian terrorists in 1995.

When is the throwing of boulders "non-violent"?

When a Palestinian throws them, of course. Just ask Thomas Friedman of the New York Times.

The Palestinian attackers first spilled oil across the highway, hoping to cause cars to slide and crash.
A few years ago, Friedman included rock-throwing in his list of types of "non-violent resistance" that he hopes Palestinians will carry out... Read the full story...
