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.

Study by German commission: Schoolbooks biased against Israel
Why are Germans so quick to remove Israeli flags?

'
BERLIN – German schoolbooks present a one-sided view of Israel as an aggressive, warlike country while ignoring that the Jewish state is the only functioning democracy in the Middle East, according to a new study by a joint Israeli-German commission reported on Monday by the daily Tagesspiegel paper.

“Pupils connect Israel with a warmongering society,” said Simone Lässig, director of the Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research.

The institute sponsored the work of the commission, made up of German and Israeli academics and pedagogical experts... Read the full story...

Op-Ed: Code Words for Genocide
by David Singer

BDS is a way to cloak a desire to destroy the Jewish state.

The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions campaign (BDS) instituted in 2005 by “Palestinian civil Society” against Israel and its civil society continues to attract people from all around the world – including Jews and Israeli Arabs - who support the campaign without realising its genocidal objective.

The BDS manifesto makes clear that its punitive measures are to be pursued until Israel ends “its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands”

These are code words effectively calling for Israel’s destruction since according to the PLO: Israel is the homeland of the Arab Palestinian people; it is an indivisible part of the Arab home land, and the Palestinian people are an integral part of the Arab nation... Read the full story...

Hamas is pinning high hopes on BDS to pave the way for the destruction of Israel through boycotts, divestment and sanctions. Hamas believes that such tools are no less important than rockets and suicide bombings, which have thus far failed to achieve the goal of wiping Israel off the face of the earth.

Instead of looking abroad, Israel should look closer to home to counter delegitimization
Instead of looking abroad, Israel should look closer to home to counter delegitimizationReuters
The campaign of anti-Israel "delegitimization" and boycotts - including but not limited to the so-called BDS Movement - is nothing new, but in recent weeks the topic has received more attention than perhaps ever before.

Despite it being far from an existential threat in its own right, from the FIFA saga to the more recent, still-unfolding drama with Orange, it is clear that Israel can no longer afford to ignore such a campaign of demonization, which is increasingly being used as leverage by internal and external actors to coerce the Israeli government to alter its policies, and hamper its ability to adequately respond to threats by applying ever-greater international pressure.

And yet, with all the bluster, the debate over how to combat "delegitimization" is as stale as ever.

On the Left, the answer is simple: it's Israel's fault for not making concessions to the Palestinian Authority, or for not toeing Obama's line... Read the full story...

The Growing Cognitive War Against Israel: A Q&A With Dr. Phyllis Chessler 6/3/2015

The Growing Cognitive War Against Israel: A Q&A With Dr. Phyllis Chesler
by Frances Martel

In her new book, Living History: On the Front Lines for Israel and the Jews 2003-2015, best-selling author, lecturer, columnist and retired psychotherapist Dr. Phyllis Chesler explores the growth of the anti-Israel campus movement and the alliance of leftist academic intellectuals with leaders of anti-Semitic Islamist movements in the East.

Speaking to Breitbart News via email, Chesler expands on the "cognitive war" being waged against Israel and the West, the startling growth of leftist pro-Palestinian movements on campus, and the nature and appeal of the anti-Israel "death cult" that has taken advantage of young college students looking to empathize with the oppressed.

Q: The book is a series of essays from the past twelve years that gives the reader a wide breadth of how expansive the propaganda war, as you call it in the book, against the state of Israel is... Read the full story...

Op-Ed: The Last Jew On Campus
by Jack Engelhard

There is a problem when Jewish kids are fearful of being Jewish on campus.

His first name is Michael. This much I can say. But he’d rather not give his last name publicly or the name of the university under discussion.

So already we understand the problem. We know there’s a problem when Jewish kids are fearful…just plain fearful of being Jewish on campus.

But he’s not “religious.” His parents always vote for Democrats and he thinks like they do... Read the full story...
