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.

Much has been written here at COMMENTARY and elsewhere regarding the boycott, divest, sanction (BDS) movement, its hypocrisy, and the anti-Semitic attitudes which too often seem to motivate some of its most vocal supporters.

A Call For Genocide 12/8/2014

A Call For Genocide
by Hali Haber

“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” What does this even mean? This chant, which is screamed across hundreds of campuses in North America, and Canada, is a call for the genocide of the Jewish people.

Let’s take a look at some of the facts:

Israel’s population is 8,252,500, as of Rosh Hashanah 2014. Within that number, 4.2% (356,500) identify as “other,” which includes non-Arabs and, Christians... Read the full story...

The Priceless Treasures on the Temple Mount
What motivates the Arabs is not their non-fundamental attachment to Jerusalem or the Temple Mount but their desire to prevent Jews from exercising sovereignty over both.Destroying priceless archaeological treasures is a way to deny Jewish history.

Jerusalem is sacred to Jews and has been for over 3000 years. According to the Tanach, (Hebrew Bible) King Solomon built the First Temple (aka Solomon’s Temple) there around 960 BCE according to the specifications in the Torah... Read the full story...

Book Review: A Decade Later, "The New anti-Semitism" Comes of Age 11/26/2014

Book Review: A Decade Later, "The New Anti-Semitism" Comes of Age
by Fern Sidman
Israel National News

Originally written after 9/11, the updated version of this important work shows how much worse Jew-hatred has become. It cannot be wished away.

When I began reading Professor Phyllis Chesler's updated book "The New Anti-Semitism", I seemed to hear a collective sigh saying "this hasn't come a minute too soon." And thanks to the excellent research and prophetic analysis of the acclaimed author, lecturer and activist, the reader is afforded the necessary context and perspective with which to understand the invidious phenomenon of contemporary Jew hatred.

Originally written over a decade ago, Chesler's premise was and still is that classical anti-Semitism as espoused by such nihilists and evil madmen as Hitler and the scores that preceded him has now been deemed to be "politically correct" by the trendy denizens of Western academia and the "intellectual" crowd.

Chesler was among the first to have seen and denounced the suicidal alliance between Western intelligentsia and fundamental Islam... Read the full story...

As I See It:: The academic intifada 11/5/2014

As I See It: The academic intifada
by Melanie Phillips

The global demonization of Israel and the Jewish people is gathering terrifying pace and ferocity, not least on university campuses.

During last summer’s war in Gaza, the Western media uncritically promulgated as truth the inflammatory Hamas lie that Israel was willfully killing Palestinian children and most of Gaza’s war casualties were civilians.

The result was an eruption of hatred and violence against Diaspora Jews in Britain and Europe.

Galvanized by this rout of reason, Palestinians have felt emboldened to ratchet up their incitement against Israel.

So Mahmoud Abbas has been inflaming the violence and rioting that has been escalating in Jerusalem by making false and incendiary claims that Israel was attempting to desecrate the Aksa Mosque.

On Western university campuses, the demonization of Israel and intimidation of Jewish students has similarly shifted onto an even more intense and vicious level.

According to a report by the Anti-Defamation League, more than 75 anti-Israel events have been reported on US college and university campuses this autumn, more than twice as many as last year and accelerating after Operation Protective Edge.

In the last few days, it was revealed that 15 Jewish and education advocacy groups have written to the presidents of more than 100 American universities which have Students for Justice in Palestine chapters, to warn them of an SJP strategy for disrupting pro-Israel events and ostracizing, harassing and silencing Jewish students.

Dozens of Jewish and pro-Israel students’ events were being disrupted, they wrote, and Jewish and pro-Israel students were being harassed, intimidated, and “stripped of their constitutionally protected freedom of expression and association.”

There is a veritable tsunami of such attacks swamping Jewish university life... Read the full story...
