The exclusive-and explosive-account of the politics of one of the most controversial nations in the world. According to Aviva Klompas, representing Israel at the United Nations is like volunteering to sell Red Sox paraphernalia outside Yankee Stadium. During her time as the director of speechwriting for Israel´s Permanent Mission to the United Nations, Klompas crafted highly acclaimed speeches that advanced Israel´s policies and informed public opinion. In Speaking for Israel, Klompas gives readers a glance behind the curtain of international politics and all the drama, intrigue, and conflict that simmer under the surface. During her tenure as Israel´s UN speechwriter, Klompas saw the collapse of four Middle Eastern states, faltering Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, waves of Palestinian terrorism, stop-and-go nuclear negotiations (culminating in the Iran Deal), an attempt to push Palestinian statehood through the UN Security Council, the Palestinians´ bid to join the International Criminal Court, the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers, and fifty days of war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. Constantly in the thick of things, Klompas´s experience with the Israeli UN delegation is full to bursting with juicy insider stories and a day-to-day look at what it´s like in the top diplomatic echelon. With humor and bite, Speaking for Israel tells her story, one that is both universal and uniquely singular.
Dr. Anne Davis is a professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity Southwest University and director of educational programs at BibleInteract. Her ongoing research has led her to the Hebraic nature of the New Testament, the intimate connection between the two testaments, and ancient methodology used by the apostle Paul and other New Testament authors. Her work to understand methods that would have been in use during the first century, before the production of hand-copied books, has led to this and other publications that explain and apply these ancient methods.These books include:Ancient Methods of Bible Study (instruction designed for beginners)All Israel Will Be Saved: Paul’s Midrash in Romans 9-11 (intermediate study)The Law Is Not a Curse: Paul’s Midrash in Galatians (advanced study)Uncovering Mysteries in the Parables with Haggadic Midrash (a practical way to begin learning ancient methods of searching the Scriptures)What is Israel’s inheritance? What is Israel at risk of losing? In book 1 of this four-part series, join Dr. Davis in this fascinating study as she turns to scripture to search for the answers to these questions. Dr. Davis shows us through scripture that all God’s children are born to a special inheritance, known as the birthright, because God calls them His firstborn son. However, simply being born to the birthright does not necessarily mean that receiving that inheritance is secured.There is the possibility of losing that special inheritance because of unrighteous behavior, and God will choose another son who is worthy. Dr. Davis finds that only those children of God who submit to their Lord as willing servants will be selected by God to inherit the birthright, and those chosen few are identified in scripture as a remnant. Dr. Davis will lead us on a journey that includes an introduction to the ancient artistry of language in the biblical text, the in 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne K. Davis.

How will Israel keep its strategic edge over an increasingly dangerous Iran? Israel has been preparing for this day by creating a special and secretive IDF unit called Talpiot. Instead of being trained to fight, the few soldiers each year selected for Talpiot are taught how to think. In order to join this unit they have to commit to being in the army for 10 years, rather than the three years a normal soldier serves. Talpiots are taught advanced level physics, math, and computer science as they train with soldiers from every other branch of the IDF. The result: young men and women become research and development machines. Talpiots have developed battle ready weapons that only Israel´s top military officers and political leaders know about. They have also dramatically improved many of the weapons already in Israel´s arsenal. Talpiot has been tasked with keeping Israel a generation ahead of a rapidly strengthening and technologically capable Iran. Talpiots contribute to all of the areas that will be most important to the IDF as Iran becomes even more powerful including missile technology, anti-missile defense, cyber-warfare, intelligence, satellite technology and high powered imaging. Talpiot soldiers have also been a major factor in the never ending fight against Israel´s other enemies and many have left the R&D lab to fly fighter planes, serve in the field as commanders of elite army ground units and at sea commanding Israel´s fleet of naval ships. After leaving the army, Talpiots have become a major force in the Israeli economy, developing some of Israel´s most famous and powerful companies. Israel´s Edge contains dozens of interviews with Talpiot graduates and some of the early founders of the program. It explains Talpiot´s highly successful recruiting methods and discloses many of the secrets of the program´s success. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shlomo Zacks.

This book doesn´t contain any Arabic letters! All Arabic words in this book were written in English-transliteration! Have you always wanted to learn how to speak the Palestinian Arabic dialect but simply didn´t have the time? Well if so, then, look no further. You have here one of the most advanced and revolutionary methods ever designed for quickly becoming conversational in a language. In creating this time-saving program, master linguist Yatir Nitzany spent years examining the 27 most common languages in the world and distilling from them the 350 words that are most likely to be used in real conversations. These 350 words were chosen in such a way that they were structurally interrelated and, when combined, form sentences. Through various other discoveries about how real conversations work - discoveries that are detailed further in this book - Nitzany created the necessary tools for linking these words together in a specific way so that you may become rapidly and almost effortlessly conversant - now. If your desire is to learn complicated grammatical rules or to speak perfectly proper and precise Arabic, this book is not for you. However, if you need to actually hold a conversation while on a trip to the Holy Land, to impress that certain someone, or to be able to speak with your grandfather or grandmother as soon as possible, then the Nitzany Method is what you have been looking for. This book is recommended for those who already have some prior knowledge of the pronunciation of Arabic accents (such as the Arabic accents: ayin, ghayn, ha, and khaf). For those of you who do not, this book does indeed provide some great, in-depth techniques on the pronunciation and recognition of these accents, which you will encounter throughout the program.

How did a fertile region turn humankind from small tribes of hunter-gatherers into the civilizations we know today?Where did writing, culture, and agriculture begin?How did the belief in a single, all-powerful God sprout and thrive in a world where people worshiped many different gods?These are just some of the questions you’ll find answers to in History of the Middle East: Melting Pot - Holy Wars & Holy Cities - From the Sumerians to the Ottoman Empire and Today’s Nation States: Israel, Iran, Iraq, and Egypt - Shaping the Near East History. The Middle East is the cradle of civilization - where humankind once roamed in small groups of hunter-gatherers and foraged for food and shelter, then learned to plant crops and build structures. Today, we are an advanced civilization that has conquered the skies, oceans, and even the moon. To understand how this transformation occurred, take a brief trip back into the history of the Middle East, where it all began.Go back to the origins of humankind, where two rivers formed the Fertile Crescent and civilization sprouted.Hear the Abrahamic Religions bud in the Levant along the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and develop into Judaism and Christianity.Listen as the steady march of empires hold sway over Middle Eastern trade, resources, religion and culture for millennia.Visit the sacred cities whose connections to holy people and events sparked bitter conflict. 1.
