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.

ASA pretends to partially drop Israel boycott
by Eugene Kontorovich October 18
The American Studies Association may be backing down from its widely-publicized decision last year to boycott Israeli academics. Or, more likely, they may be obfuscating and retroactively recharacterizing their policy to avoid civil rights problems.
Yesterday, I discussed how the Westin Bonaventure hotel’s hosting of the ASA’s upcoming annual conference might violate California civil rights law... Read the full story...

In return for receiving taxpayer funds for foreign regional studies, universities must agree, according to Title VI of the Higher Education Act (HAE), to conduct "public outreach" programs aimed at K-12 teachers and the general public.
Problem is, as shown in research by Campus Watch and others, the Middle East studies centers betray a relentless bias in their Outreach programs against the United States and its allies, especially Israel, while showing a willful blindness to radical Islam... Read the full story...
Israeli library's manuscripts tell unique stories
Israel's National Library is unique: It seeks manuscripts from every country in the world where Jews have ever lived, therefore Kafka's Hebrew notebook, Newton's theological theories and S.Y. Agnon drafts are just few of the treasures found in It.

These are treasures that Israel doesn't allow anyone to check out of its national library.

1,200 academics sign anti-boycott petition
Move comes in response to statement by over 360 anthropologists urging sanctions against Israeli academic institutions
by Times of Israel staff
Nearly 1,200 academics from universities and colleges across the world signed an online petition to oppose any boycott of Israel and its higher education institutions.
The petition was posted October 5 on the Faculty for Academic Freedom website and had been endorsed by 1,185 signatories at time of writing.
“We, the undersigned academics… vigorously support free speech and free debate but we oppose faculty or student boycotts of Israel’s academic institutions, scholars and students,” the petition states.
The statement accused BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) supporters of discriminating against Israeli institutions, professors, and students “for no other reason than their nationality and the policies of their government,” and added that such a practice violated “the very principle of academic freedom.”
According to the petition, the BDS supporters’ position undermines the possibility of ever achieving a long-lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, as it completely isolated the Jewish state.
“The two-state solution – which guarantees to both parties mutual recognition – enjoys the endorsement of the United Nations, the United States, the European Union, and the Arab League,” the petition reads.
“By demonizing and seeking to isolate one of the two parties to the peace process, the anti-Israel BDS movement sets itself apart from the global consensus for peace.”
The anti-BDS petition came in response to a statement posted on Oct... Read the full story...
