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.

Hamas's Academic Apologists 8/31/2014

American Thinker
Hamas's Academic Apologists
by Cinnamon Stillwell

Reaction by Middle East studies professors to Israel’s recent effort to destroy Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure epitomizes their perennial pro-Hamas, anti-Israel, and anti-American biases. In lieu of reasoned, informed, and balanced assessments, they proffer extremist rhetoric that demonizes Israel and America while ignoring Hamas’s misdeeds: rockets aimed at Israeli civilians, kidnappings and murder, disregard for ceasefires, and the cynical use of Palestinian civilians -- including children -- as human shields.

Two groups -- Middle East Scholars and Librarians and Historians Against the War -- signed letters advocating a boycott of Israeli academic institutions and accusing Israel of war crimes that demand the end to U.S... Read the full story...

Leading Reform rabbi cites newspaper’s one-sided coverage of Gaza war

I am a lifelong Democrat, a political liberal, a Reform rabbi, and for four decades, until last week, a New York Times subscriber. What drove me away was the paper’s incessant denigration of Israel, a torrent of articles, photographs, and op-ed columns that consistently present the Jewish State in the worst possible light.

Rock Ambush Injures Baby in Samaria 8/27/2014

Rock Ambush Injures Baby in Samaria

Eleven-month-old baby was lightly hurt when Arabs threw rocks at the car she was in, near Yitzhar.
by Uzi Baruch and Gil Ronen

An 11-month-old baby girl was lightly hurt Wednesday when Arabs threw rocks at the car she was in, at Yitzhar junction in Samaria.

A Magen David Adom ambulance that was alerted reached the junction and gave the baby first aid. It then took her to Schneider Children's Hospital in Petah Tikva.

The ambulance driver said that the rock that hit the baby was the size of a fist and that the fact that the baby did not suffer more severe injuries is “a miracle.”

The attack took place just as it was reported that after a year and a half of intensive operations and treatment, four-and-a-half-year-old Adelle Biton will be returning to her home in the town of Yakir, in Samaria, tomorrow (Thursday).

On March 2013, as she was travelling in a car with her siblings and mother Adva close to the city of Ariel, their car was ambushed by Arabs, who hurled rocks at the car, causing it to veer off the road and crash headfirst into a truck.

Adelle, who was just three years old at the time, was left critically injured and fighting for her life; investigators say she was struck directly in the head by fist-sized rock thrown by her attackers.

Following a difficult period in intensive care and extensive operations she was transferred for rehabilitation at the Beit Lowenstein hospital in Raanana... Read the full story...

The Israel Story

Is there anything left to say about Israel and Gaza? Newspapers this summer have been full of little else. Television viewers see heaps of rubble and plumes of smoke in their sleep. A representative article from a recent issue of The New Yorker described the summer’s events by dedicating one sentence each to the horrors in Nigeria and Ukraine, four sentences to the crazed génocidaires of ISIS, and the rest of the article—30 sentences—to Israel and Gaza.

When the hysteria abates, I believe the events in Gaza will not be remembered by the world as particularly important... Read the full story...

A Hate Incident
by Elon Gold

This past Friday night, instead of having my usual guests for a festive Friday night dinner in my home, I had three compassionate Los Angeles Police Department officers standing in my kitchen explaining the difference between a “hate crime” and a “hate incident.” My family was the victim of the latter.
We were walking home in Los Angeles after a Friday night dinner at a friend’s house, dressed nicely for Shabbat, easily identifiable as a Jewish family... Read the full story...

Hamas Goes on an 'Israel Collaborator' Killing Spree

Eighteen Gazans publicly executed in central Gaza City Friday morning as part of the terrorist regime's ongoing bloody 'purge.'
by Ari Yashar


The Hamas regime in Gaza continues to execute its own civilians, even while engaged in a bloody war against Israel.

In a central venue in Gaza City on Friday morning, 11 local Arab residents who were charged with "collaborating with Israel" were publicly executed by Hamas, according to the Arabic-language Al-Rai news agency.

However, Hamas TV reported that the number of those executed was actually as high as 18 men... Read the full story...
