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.

The decision to follow through with sending Iraqi Jewish archives back to Iraq is part of a disturbing pattern.
September 12, 2017 Caroline Glick 32

The law of Occam’s Razor, refined to common parlance, is that the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.

If we apply Occam’s Razor to recently reported positions of the US State Department, then we can conclude that the people making decisions at Foggy Bottom have “issues” with Jews and with Israel.

Last Friday, JTA reported that the State Department intends to abide by an agreement it reached in 2014 with the Iraqi government and return the Iraqi Jewish archives to Iraq next year.

The Iraqi Jewish archives were rescued in Baghdad by US forces in 2003 from a flooded basement of the Iraqi secret services headquarters... Read the full story...

Palestinian Authority cracks down on press freedom 9/10/2017

Palestinian Authority cracks down on press freedom
by Dima Abumaria

Abbas's recently enacted Electronic Crimes Law leads to the closure of some 30 websites and the detention of multiple journalists in the West Bank in the name of 'national security' and 'public good'; in Gaza, Hamas attacks, kidnaps, tortures and limits journalists from travelling abroad.

Over the past month, Palestinian Authority security forces arrested multiple journalists, including Tareq Abu Zeid, Amer Abu Arafa, Mamdouh Hamamra, Ahmad al-Halayqa and Qutaiba Qasim.

The families of the detained journalists and human rights activists participated in a sit-in this week in downtown Ramallah to protest the arrests and the Electronic Crimes Law, enacted by President Mahmoud Abbas in July.

The civil courts nevertheless have extended the detention of the journalists for working with channels considered by the Public Prosecution to be banned in the West Ban
The PA has seemingly launched a crackdown on civil society, including shutting down social media accounts and websites—all of which were said to be guilty of “electronic crimes.” So far, about 30 sites have been closed, with some of the reasons given being for the purposes of “national security,” “political stability,” “public good,” “social peace,” etc.

Mohammad Laham, who is responsible for protecting journalists’ freedom of speech, explained to The Media Line that the new law covers a very broad range of potential offenses... Read the full story...

New York Times Likens Israel to North Korea

A New York Times column likens Israel to the brutal dictatorship of North Korea.
by Ira Stoll

In his foreign policy column “The Interpreter,” New York Times staffer Max Fisher makes the claim that China can’t solve the problem of North Korea’s nuclear weapons. He relies in part on “Jeffrey Lewis, who directs an East Asia program at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.”

The Times column says:

“Its sticks and carrots all having failed with North Korea, China worries that increasing pressure will cut off what little influence it has.

“Americans might see parallels in their country’s own troubled alliances, particularly in the Middle East.…

New York Times Review Hails Book Accusing US of ‘Blind,’ ‘Fanatical’ Support of Israel
by Ira Stoll

The latest issue of the New York Times Book Review devotes its entire front page (and most of a second page inside) to a glowing review of Suzy Hansen’s new book, Notes On A Foreign Country: An American Abroad In A Post-American World.

The Times-picked reviewer gushes that the book is “rare and necessary…admirable.” It also claims that the book “is spoken softly rather than screamed.” The book’s author, Hansen, “is a contributing writer for the Times magazine.”

And then we get this strange and glancing mention of the Jewish state... Read the full story...
