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's Reading Month to include events in the periphery
Book fairs, children's plays, meetings with authors and musical performances to be held in 60 cities and towns across the country starting June 25 and running until July 20.
by Elad Zeret

After the end of the Hebrew Book Week, which saw events only in three major cities, Israel's Reading Month will begin Sunday and is set to include events in the periphery as well.

The Hebrew Book Week, which ended on Saturday, featured book fairs only in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Rishon Lezion because of a dispute between the Book Publishers Association and the Culture Ministry over the budget for the events in the periphery.

Culture Minister Miri Regev decided to hold additional events as part of the Israel Reading Month, which the ministry has been holding for eight years, to the tune of NIS 3.75 million.
Reading Month events, starting June 25 and running until July 20, will be held in 60 cities and towns across Israel and in the West Bank, including Migdal, Katzrin, Eshkol, Kiryat Ekron, Yavne'el, Tirat Carmel, Gan Raveh, Or Akiva, Har Hebron, Kedumim, Ma'ale Adumim, Safed, Arad, Bat Yam, Beit Shean, Ofakim, among others.

Among the planned activities are book fairs, children's plays, meetings with authors and musical events... Read the full story...

What’s Happened to the Anti-Defamation League?
by Charles Jacobs

Where is the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)?

As a “new antisemitism” casts the Jewish state as the cruelest of nations, and her Jewish supporters as “racists,” the ADL has been largely silent. The lies are spread in newspapers, churches and college classrooms. On campuses, Jewish students are harassed and intimidated... Read the full story...

Netanyahu to Abbas: Stop poisoning Palestinian youth

Netanyahu blasts PA chairman for his continued incitement and for educating young Palestinian Arabs to murder Israelis.
by Elad Benari

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday night blasted Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas for his continued incitement against Israel.

In a series of tweets, Netanyhau condemned the PA for naming – not for the first time – a public square after a terrorist.

This time, the PA named a square in Jenin after arch-terrorist Khaled Nazzal, the Secretary of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), and commander of its military branch.

Nazzal was responsible for planning the 1974 Ma'alot massacre, in which terrorists entered a school in the northern town of Ma'alot and took dozens of children and teachers hostage... Read the full story...

Getting the digital generation hooked on books
by Dr. Nitza Dori

In honor of Book Week, I would like to discuss the "electronics generation." Sometimes, we don't even try to make them into bookworms.

Especially today, in an era in which everything is fast-moving, it's important to raise children who read. Children who read become teenagers who read and adults who read, and they won't have difficulty writing a detailed answer to a question on a literature, history, Bible, or any other test...

Although there has been hard-right anti-Semitism for decades, the bigotry of the hard-left is far more prevalent and influential on many university campuses. Those on the left, who support left-wing anti-Semites try to downplay, ignore or deny that those they support are really anti-Semites. "They are anti-Zionist" is the excuse du jour...

CUNY's Curious Defense of Linda Sarsour 6/1/2017

CUNY's Curious Defense of Linda Sarsour
by A.J. Caschetta
The New English Review

Islamofascist Linda Sarsour will give the keynote address at the City University of New York (CUNY) School of Public Health graduation ceremony today.

In an era when saying the wrong thing, deemed offensive by someone, can end a career, social justice warriors always seem to get a pass. Few have received more than Linda Sarsour, a Muslim self-styled "feminist" who supports a political system that systematically represses women, celebrates child warriors on social media, and once tweeted of two ideological foes, "I wish I could take away their vaginas – they don't deserve to be women."

The more Sarsour offends, the more she is celebrated... Read the full story...
