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.

Why Is No One Talking About Ahed Tamimi’s Call For Stabbings?
by Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll

The sight of a young, unarmed woman standing up to heavily armed soldiers will always be a powerful one. This was certainly the case with a recent video seen around the world — that of Ahed Tamimi, the teenaged Palestinian girl who stood against the mighty IDF and was subsequently arrested.

Who could resist the stark, moving image of a young girl battling powerful soldiers with just her tiny fists, a perfect David vs... Read the full story...

Students For Justice In Palestine Relies On A Network Of Hate 2/4/2018

Students For Justice In Palestine Relies On A Network Of Hate
by Max Samarov


For years, the anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has presented itself as an “independent grassroots organization” that supports justice and human rights while opposing all forms of bigotry. Their recently leaked SJP Divestment Handbook, however, reveals that SJP relies heavily on outside political groups — and often, ones that actively promote hate.

The SJP Divestment Handbook details the inner workings of SJP’s campaigns against Israel as a part of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement.

The story begins with the front cover, which states, “Produced with support from US Campaign for Palestinian Rights” (USCPR)... Read the full story...

Palestinians: Silencing and Intimidating Journalists
by Bassam Tawil

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11804/palestinians-silencing-intimidation

The five journalists were arrested shortly after Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas signed the controversial cyber-crime law in June 2017. Critics say the new law is aimed at silencing and intimidating journalists and political opponents of the PA and its president.

Ammar Dweik, head of the Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights, said the new law is "one of the worst" since the PA was established in 1994.

The Palestinian Authority claims it does not tolerate "incitement." The "incitement" it is referring to, however, is criticism of Abbas and his cronies... Read the full story...

Thoughts from Norway: Palestinian schools promote war against israel 1/26/2018

Thoughts from Norway: Palestinian schools promote war against Jews
by Dag T. Elgvin

The Norwegian Foreign Minister now has an important issue on her table. It demands great courage, because it involves a change from previous policies. The former Foreign Minister, Børge Brende, last years halted a grant to a women’s center named after the terrorist Al-Mughrabi, who murdered 30 people on a bus in 1978.

Now it appears that anti-Semitism and glorification of terror and terrorists not only takes place in one women’s center, but is a continuous theme in elementary schools.

Their textbooks claim that the Jews have no historical connection with the country and that the state of Israel has no right to exist, and therefore violence and terror to kill Jews with the purpose of eradication of Israel is legitimate.

Over a million children and youth are exposed to this propaganda.

The same anti-Semitic schoolbooks are also used in the 370 schools run by the UN Organization that helps Palestinian Refugees from 1948 and their descendants, , UNRWA.

The new Norwegian Government states in its new declaration that the government “will not support organizations in the Palestinian territories that encourage violence or promote hateful expressions, racism or anti-Semitism.”

Then there’s only one thing to do: Stop all funding of The Palestinian Authority (PA) and UNRWA, and demand that textbooks be rewritten.

The PA has for a long time tried to become a member of the UN... Read the full story...

Iraqi Jews, Al Jazeera and Theft 1/24/2018

Iraqi Jews, Al Jazeera and Theft

The following guest post is written by Lyn Julius, author of UPROOTED: How 3,000 years of Jewish Civilisation in the Arab World Vanished Overnight (Vallentine Mitchell).

After taking control of Baghdad from Saddam Hussein, US troops discovered what came to be called the Iraqi-Jewish archive in the waterlogged basement of the Iraqi secret police headquarters. This priceless collection of Jewish books and documents was shipped to the US for restoration at a cost of $3 million.

And now: it’s heading back to Iraq.

In spite of fierce protests by Iraqi Jews and even members of Congress, the US government, which is committed to an agreement signed in 2003, has announced that it will return the archive next September.

Why is this a problem?

Not only were its contents originally stolen from the rightful owners (the Jews of Iraq), but upon the archive’s return, it will almost certainly become inaccessible to scholars as well as to any Jews who may be interested in their own history.

Enter Al Jazeera and its article by Dalia Hakuta entitled, “Iraqi-Jewish archive triggers traumatic memories.”

The overwhelming impression to the reader is that the archive is the property of Iraq, and that it is the Americans who have stolen it from their rightful owners... Read the full story...

Europe's Linguistic Crusade Against Israel 1/22/2018

Europe’s Linguistic Crusade Against Israel
by Daniel Krygier

Europe deals with guilt over the Holocaust and former colonialism by idealizing Third World Muslims and demonizing the First World Jewish state with a linguistic crusade that perverts truth.

A few days ago, Germany’s Foreign Minister, Sigmar Gabriel, repeated the lie that Israel is an apartheid state. In the past, Gabriel has claimed that the German Social Democrats suffered the same fate as Jews during the Third Reich.

Gabriel’s disturbing anti-Jewish CV includes mingling with Iran’s leaders, who openly call for Israel’s destruction, and hosting the German-based Islamist extremist Hamidreza Torabi at a German Foreign Ministry event promoting “religious peace.”

Israel’s enemies often claim that they cannot criticize Israel without being accused of antisemitism... Read the full story...
