Children and educators alike can learn about Israel’s cool Internet technologies (i.e. AOL instant messaging), watermelon picking robots, live-saving cancer drugs, and other joint U.S.-Israeli projects and become better informed about Israel’s unique history, national languages, climate, food, branches of government, and currency.

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 New York Times' Double standard Is On Display - Yet Again
by Ira Stoll

One of the best ways to detect the biases of the New York Times in relation to Jews and Israel is by making comparisons.

We’ve written about this in the past here and here, citing examples such as the Times’ approval of separate swimming hours for Muslim women, but objection to them for Jewish women, or enthusiastic coverage of an exhibit on Islamic art versus vaguely hostile coverage of an exhibit about Judaism.

But the examples just keep coming and coming.

The first concerns foreign policy... Read the full story...

Anti-Israel Activists at McGill Boycott, Block Access to 'Peace Wall' 11/18/2016

Anti-Israel Activists at McGill Boycott, Block Access to ‘Peace Wall’
by Lea Speyer

Despite invitations to contribute to an installation promoting peace in the Middle East, BDS activists at Canada’s McGill University protested it on anti-Israel grounds, campus newspaper the McGill Daily reported.

According to an organizer of the installation — run in part by advocacy group Artists 4 Israel — anti-Israel activists “chose to separate themselves and segregate themselves” from the event, which he said centered on the themes of peace, coexistence and inclusiveness.

The installation in question included Israeli and Canadian flags, the word “peace” in Hebrew and English and banners highlighting the democratic nature of the Jewish state, as well as a tee-shirt-making stand.
