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.

Muslim and Jewish Book Burners 4/4/2015

Muslim and Jewish Book-Burners by David Horowitz

On April 2, the Daily Californian, which is Berkeley’s campus newspaper, published an article I wrote giving the reasons why I had organized a campaign against Students for Justice in Palestine. The article cited a series of facts as evidence for identifying SJP as a hate group whose purpose was to spread the genocidal lies of the terrorist organization Hamas, and whose raison d’etre was the destruction of the Jewish state.

The following day, Students for Justice in Palestine posted a “response.” I put quotes around “response” because what SJP posted was actually not a response in the sense of an attempt to refute my claims or a reasoned defense of its mission... Read the full story...

Are Jewish students safe at the Ujniversity of California? Yes and no. 3/26/2015

Are Jewish students safe at the University of California? Yes and no:
Posted: 03/26/15
by Tammi Rossman-Benjamin

What is the campus climate like for Jewish students at the University of California? As the old Jewish joke goes: in one word, good; in two words, not good.

Let’s start with the good.

Last week, UC President Janet Napolitano and Board of Regents Chair Bruce Varner issued a strong statement condemning recent anti-Semitic incidents on UC campuses, which have included swastikas spray-painted on a Jewish fraternity house at UC Davis and the inappropriate questioning of a candidate for the student judiciary board about her Jewishness and Jewish affiliations at UCLA.

The Napolitano-Varner statement was issued on the heels of two other unprecedented responses to escalating anti-Semitic activity on UC campuses: the student senates at UCLA and UC Berkeley each unanimously approved resolutions condemning campus anti-Semitism.

Both resolutions invoked the U.S... Read the full story...

ALA parners with UAE book fair that doesn't like Jews 3/25/2015

American Library Association partners with UAE book fair that doesn't like Jews
From the American Library Association:

What fun!

Only a couple of problems.

One is this:

The Shar­jah Inter­na­tional Book Fair (SIBF) in the United Arab Emi­rates, which report­edly attracted 1 mil­lion vis­i­tors from across the region, fea­tured sev­eral infa­mous anti-Semitic books...

The mis­sion of the fair, accord­ing to orga­niz­ers, is “to cul­ti­vate the love for lit­er­a­ture among peo­ple by enrich­ing their expe­ri­ence of the writ­ten word.”

The anti-Semitic books for sale at the fair were listed along­side main­stream books in var­i­ous cat­e­gories... Read the full story...

Jewish University Students and Double Standards 3/23/2015

Jewish University Students and Double Standards by Lindsay Schneider

The University of Oklahoma cut all ties with the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity chapter on campus after a video surfaced in which fraternity members were chanting a racist song on Monday, March 9th. [Note from LfF: We agree with the University's punitive actions in this sordid incident).

A statement from SAE’s national headquarters apologized for the “unacceptable and racist behavior.” The University of Oklahoma’s SAE chapter closed, all members have been suspended (including those not in the video), and those recognized in the video have been expelled... Read the full story...

Needed: "Islamist Apartheid Week"
by Uzay Bulut

"The BDS movement is immoral because it violates the core principle if human rights: namely, 'the worst first.' Israel is among the freest and most democratic nations in the world. It is certainly the freest and most democratic nation in the Middle East. Its Arab citizens enjoy more rights than Arabs anywhere else in the world. They serve in the Knesset, in the Judiciary, in the Foreign Service, in the academy and in business... Read the full story...

From Durban to Los angeles: the BDS movement's long trail of anti-Semitism 3/13/2015

From Durban to Los Angeles: the BDS movement’s long trail of anti-Semitism
by Tammi Rossman-Benjamin/

Last month, in a breathtaking display of anti-Semitism reminiscent of Nazi Germany, members of the student government at South Africa’s Durban University of Technology (DUT) called for the expulsion of all Jewish students from their campus. The very next day, halfway around the world, the student government at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) engaged in a similar display of anti-Jewish bigotry, nearly denying a highly qualified young woman a position on the student judiciary board after four student representatives brazenly argued that her Jewishness and affiliation with Jewish organizations should make her ineligible for the position.

Besides a shared proclivity for anti-Jewish bigotry, the DUT and UCLA student governments have something else in common: both bodies had previously voted to embrace the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel... Read the full story...

Anti-Semitism in action at UCLA 3/9/2015

Anti-Semitism in action at UCLA
Monday, March 9, 2015

The sickness of anti-Semitism that afflicts too many institutions of American higher education came into view at UCLA when an impressive student sought to join the school’s undergraduate governing council.

When Rachel Beyda stood for an interview by members of the panel, a fellow student asked:

“Given that you are a Jewish student and very active in the Jewish community ... Read the full story...

Op-Ed: UCLA's Jewish Problem - Trending Far and Wide 3/9/2015

Op-Ed: UCLA’s Jewish Problem – Trending Far and Wide
To be Jewish at UCLA or at any other Burka U is to be an outcast, primed for blacklisting and bullying.
by Jack Engelhard

The story has been circulating for quite some time, but finally The New York Times took notice, front page, about Rachel Beyda who failed to meet specifications at UCLA, namely for the mistake of being Jewish.

This demerit disqualified the 20-year-old sophomore from being admitted to an exclusive student council subgroup, the judicial board, although all her other papers were in order... Read the full story...
