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.

HonestReporting CEO: Corrosive Atmosphere on Campus Harming Young Jews
by Alex Margolin

As college campuses across North America become entrenched in battles over Israel led by the BDS movement and other forces of delegitimization, how much hostility is being directed at Jewish students?

That’s the question behind a new study released on Tuesday, and the findings are enough to give pause to anyone thinking about the atmosphere on campus.

According to the study presented by Brandeis professors Leonard Saxe and Theodore Sasson, one third of Jewish students in the US and Canada experienced verbal harassment and a quarter have been blamed for Israel’s actions because they are Jewish... Read the full story...

Report on PA education system shows widespread glorification of terrorism 7/22/2015

Report on PA education system shows widespread glorification of terrorism
by Hayah Goldlist-Eichler

“The PA teaches its children to reject Israel’s right to exist, encourages them to view Jews as evil and directs them to embrace terrorist murderers as role models.”

An Israeli teachers’ association will present a comprehensive report about anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist education in Palestinian Authority schools, at a global education conference that opened on Tuesday.

The Association of Secondary School Teachers in Israel, in partnership with the group Palestinian Media Watch – which monitors and analyzes the PA through its media and schoolbooks – is set to present the 57-page report at the Education International World Congress.

In the foreword of the document, the association writes that “the PA teaches its children to reject Israel’s right to exist, encourages them to view Jews as evil and directs them to embrace terrorist murderers as role models.”

It also accuses the PA of depriving their own children of a peaceful future.

The report, which Palestinian Media Watch compiled, includes a detailed list of examples of Palestinian children’s exposure to what the monitor group’s director, Itamar Marcus, has called “terror glorification.”

Marcus was invited to be one of the Association of Secondary School Teachers in Israel’s delegates at the congress, and will be the one to present the report.

Copies will be handed out at the start of the conference to delegations representing 400 teachers’ unions from 171 countries.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post this week ahead of the conference, Marcus said he thinks the evidence will shock those in attendance.

“When you hear the problematic issues one by one, you don’t get the same sense as when you really see the totality of it – the world of the Palestinian child,” he said.

According to Marcus, the world of the Palestinian child means “you can wake up and walk to school on a street named after a terrorist and then go to school on a street named after a terrorist and in the afternoon play in a sporting event named after a terrorist... Read the full story...

Note From Librarians for Fairness: 7/20/2015

We hope a lot of people saw the newspaper photographs of Ku Klux Klan members burning an Israeli flag, in South Carolina this weekend. Essentially, so-called "progressives" (including some librarians) who hate Israel, disrupt the presentations of pro-Israeli speakers, boycott its products, and burn Israeli flags, have much in common with the racist KKK.

How anti-Zionism has turned into anti-Semitism on UC campuses 6/26/2015

How anti-Zionism has turned into anti-Semitism on UC campuses
by Leila Beckwith

Scholars have struggled to understand the many faces of anti-Semitism, a phenomenon which has existed for almost two millennia, and which the great scholar Robert Wistrich labeled “the longest hatred.”

In the Middle Ages when Jews were forced into conversion, exile, and/or ghettos, Jew hatred took a religious form.

Even in the 1930s, when I was growing up in Brooklyn, there were children who ran after me, taunting me as a Christ killer.

Later, Jew hatred morphed into economics, with Jews hated either as greedy capitalists with power over the world, or its opposite, as revolutionary Communists.

By the 1930s, the Nazis labeled Jews as an inferior “race” who contaminated the earth by their existence, and therefore, deserved to be exterminated.

But now, and particularly on university campuses, it is the land of Israel that is the medium through which hatred, now of the Jewish collective, is expressed.

Hatred that is irrational and obsessive is other than mere scholarly criticism... Read the full story...
