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.

In Response to Brandeis Report on Campus Antisemitism, Major Groups Say Students More Willing, Prepared Than Ever to Fight Back
by Lea Speyer

Jewish and pro-Israel students are more willing and better organized than ever to fight back against antisemitism on US campuses, the heads of major campus watchdog organizations told The Algemeiner this week, in response to a newly released Brandeis University-sponsored report on the growing phenomenon and its link to the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, head of the AMCHA Initiative, said the report’s findings are in line with research conducted by her own organization... Read the full story...

Mideast Scholars: Anti-Israel Professors in US Ignoring... 10/10/2016

Mideast Scholars: Anti-Israel Professors in US Ignoring Violent Suppression of Academic Freedom on Palestinian Campuses
by Rachel Frommer

Academic freedom on campuses in Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled areas is suppressed by a surrounding societal culture of intimidation and violence — something that anti-Israel professors in the United States have been ignoring, two scholars told The Algemeiner this week.

Cary Nelson, Jubilee Professor of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) — who recently penned an article about the radicalization of Palestinian students — and Asaf Romirowsky, executive director of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East (SPME), said that aggressive, sometimes life-threatening tactics are employed on West Bank campuses to stifle thinkers who may question or contradict the mainstream Palestinian narrative.

Nelson said Palestinian students are “weaponized” by terrorist groups to intimidate academics into conforming to a strict Islamist ideology; Romirowsky claimed Palestinian education culture is one that uses the cover of academic freedom to “perpetuate hate.”

Nelson recounted a conversation he had with a Palestinian faculty member, who described West Bank campuses as filled with “gangs of young students trained by Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules Gaza, and PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah faction to threaten staff, burn cars, kill and beat” and bemoaned the fate of fellow academics who would like to engage in genuine scholarship, but face a “crazed level of intimidation.”

“Most Palestinian academics are not honest about what’s happening in the pedagogy of Palestinian children,” Romirowsky said... Read the full story...

43 UK Campus Leaders Slam President of Country's Largest Student Union... 10/8/2016

43 UK Campus Leaders Slam President of Country’s Largest Student Union for Repeatedly Dismissing Concerns of Systemic Antisemitism
by Lea Speyer

In an open letter on Wednesday, campus leaders across the UK slammed the head of the country’s largest student union for her repeated dismissal of concerns regarding systemic antisemitism on campuses.

“Over the past six months, the [National Union of Students’ (NUS)] Leadership has rightly come under increased scrutiny for its attitude towards Jewish students,” said the letter, signed by 43 student leaders and directed at NUS President Malia Bouattia.

Referring to a recent interview with the UK’s Guardian — in which Bouattia acknowledged that she applies double standards when it comes to racism against Jews — the student leaders wrote that despite an ongoing discussion about antisemitism within the NUS, the voices of Jewish students have been ignored.

“Time and again Jewish students have not felt safe participating in our national movement, because of the actions and rhetoric of leadership of NUS,” the letter stated.

The student leaders demanded that Bouattia and the organization under her leadership “listen to Jewish students when they say something is antisemitic.”

They also addressed Jewish students in the letter, saying: “We…promise to respect, champion and listen to your concerns... Read the full story...

Jewish Students at U. of Michigan 'Deeply Offended'... 10/7/2016

Jewish Students at U of Michigan ‘Deeply Offended’ by ‘Apartheid Wall,’ Mock Israeli Checkpoints Erected on Campus During Rosh Hashanah

Jewish students at the University of Michigan were “deeply offended” that an “apartheid wall” and mock Israeli checkpoints were allowed to be erected on campus during the high holiday of Rosh Hashanah, the student newspaper The Michigan Review reported on Wednesday.

According to the report, the structures — assembled by the anti-Israel group Students Allied for Freedom and Equality (SAFE) as part of Palestine Awareness Month — outraged those members of the Jewish community who remained on campus during the holiday and were “left to cope…without the support of many of their peers,” who were away observing the holiday.

According to the report, SAFE needed to receive advance permission from the school to hold the “apartheid” event, “suggesting that the university initially saw no problem” with it.

In response, students launched a petition calling on the school’s president, Dr... Read the full story...

'Most South Africans Love Israel'
Pro-Israel South African MP, Rev. Dr. Kenneth Meshoe, rubbishes 'apartheid' slurs, calls on Israelis to be more self confident.
by Eliran Aharon

Rev. Dr. Kenneth Meshoe, a courageous pro-Israel voice in South Africa, who is visiting Israel as part of his activity in the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, told Arutz Sheva that despite misconceptions, most South Africans love Israel, and noted that many South African churches have “Israel” and “Zion” in their names.

However, he explained, the anti-Israelis are better financed and tend to be louder than supporters, whereas Israel's supporters are more shy.
