The number of university-level degrees handed out in Israel has multiplied by five over the past 25 years. Academic degrees in Israel increased 500% since 1990.
In the 2013/2014 school year, 75,100 degrees were awarded to students who completed their studies in institutions of higher education - universities, academic colleges and education colleges. Forty-two thousand received degrees from universities (55.9%), 24,700 from academic colleges (32.9%, of which 15.3% are state-funded and 17.6% are private) and 8,400 from colleges of education (11.2%).
In 2013/14, most bachelor degree graduates were women (59.5%), and most master degree recipients were women as well (60.7%). Nearly half of PhD recipients were women (49.7%). In many fields of study women made up the majority, such as in medical assistance (83.9% undergraduate and 84.3% masters) and the humanities (77.5% undergraduate, 77.4% masters and 56.4% PhD).
Almost a tenth of graduates during the 2013/14 school year were Arabs (9.7%). Their percentage was particularly low at academic colleges (6.3%), however, at colleges of education their percentage was very high (19.5%). The percentage of Arabs who received PhDs was very low (3.2%).
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
The best way to fight BDS is not to fight it at all. Israel has a lot to offer to the world - from medical to military innovations; from hi-tech to agriculture. The best way to defeat BDS is to promote what Israel can do for the world!
Israel has the Cause for Self-defence Action
The same day as the UN endorsed Iran deal, paving the way to lift sanctions, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei called for the Muslim world's mission to unite and the destruction of Israel: "If the Islamic Ummah (nation) were united and relied on their own commonalities, they would certainly be a unique power in the international political scene but big powers have imposed such divisions on the Islamic Ummah to pursue their own interests and safeguard the Zionist regime (of Israel)."
(There are two ways to eliminate threat from Iran : Bomb nuclear facilities or help suppressed and discriminated Iranian minorities to remove the idiotic regime!)
Israel is demanding that European Union member states halt funding to non-governmental organizations allegedly working to delegitimize the Jewish state. The Foreign Ministry claims that European governments provide 100-200 million euros annually to anti-Israel leftist groups. Some of these organizations are associated with and actively support terror groups.
(EU will never give up its deeply ingrained anti-Semitism that still in charge of its politics toward Israel. Stop begging! Israel must adopt and enforce laws regulating foreign interference on Israel's internal politics and press conduct!)
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Freed Terrorists Are Murdering Jews Again
Opponents of the 2011 deal that freed captured soldier Gilad Shalit in exchange for 1,070 terrorist prisoners are experiencing a sad vindication as more and more Israelis are being murdered by terrorists freed in that deal. The Israeli government released terrorists, who had murdered 619 Israelis in total. Malachi Rosenfeld's murder brings to six the number of Israelis murdered by terrorists freed for single soldier in 2011.
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Jonathan Pollard to be Free?
The US Justice Department is "seriously" considering the release of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard when he is up for a parole hearing in November. Pollard is currently serving his 30th year of an unprecedented life sentence in a US prison for espionage on behalf of an ally, Israel.
(After letting go Russian spies several years ago and releasing Cuban murderer the US only 'considering' release of Jonathan Pollard? Or, is it just deception after the deal?)
Axis of Evil is still Evil
Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the agreement with world powers won't change Iran's approach to the United States. He also said Iran would continue supporting Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas and Palestinian militant groups.
(Nothing has changed, only the desire of the US president to create his presidential 'legacy' and the wish to help his Muslim 'friends'!)
Israeli Bees Coming to Japan
An agreement for direct non-stop flights between Israel and Japan has been signed - and Israeli bumble-bees might be the first passengers to help Japan agriculture to compensate for its dwindling honeybee population.
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Kerry doesn't Know what's in Iran Deal
During classified briefings Secretary of State last week John Kerry told lawmakers that he has not read the side deals, never possessed a copy of them, and approved the nuclear agreement without knowing their details. Lawmakers say they aren't satisfied with the explanation of side deals on Iran 's nuclear program that weren't sent to Congress, and still want to see the original documents. "These side deals were essential to getting a deal signed in the first place. Iran believed these side deals to be important to an overall agreement, and so should the United States..." said Rep. Mike Pompeo.
A series of explosions targeting Hamas and Islamic Jihad operatives has pushed internal strife to its limits, with Hamas and Salafists battling for control of the coastal territory. Four of the destroyed vehicles belonged to Hamas military wing members, and the rest belonged to Islamic Jihad military wing members.
(In the beginning, there was Fatah, then PLO, PA and Hamas. Now Islamic Jihad, Salafists and ISIS have arrived. There are no Palestinian people, just a mix of Israel-haters, who at any moment are willing and eager to kill each other!)
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Subtlety is not German Forte!
German business leaders landed in Iran with Sigmar Gabriel, Germany's vice chancellor and economy minister, who flew to Iran just few days after the nuclear deal, becoming the first top Western official to visit the country. Some 80 German companies are still having subsidiaries in Iran.
(It proves that the deal was not about stopping the Iranian nuclear program, but to open oil-rich Iran for business.)
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Herzog: The Disengagement Was a Mistake
Several senior Israeli politicians from across the political spectrum attended a conference marking 10 years since the expulsion of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria. Among those speaking at the conference was Opposition Leader and Zionist Union party chairman Yitzhak Herzog, who told the audience he agreed the Disengagement was a "mistake."
(Empty words mean nothing! Are they willing and ready to remove enemies from Jewish land?)
(.../freeworldexpress.com/) Now the EU is Angry at Israel
A meeting of EU foreign ministers blasts Israel for what it says are actions that 'seriously threaten the 'two-state solution'. The EU "calls on Israeli authorities to halt plans for forced transfer of population and demolition of Palestinian housing and infrastructure..." The EU "reiterates its strong opposition to Israel 's settlement policy and actions taken in this context, such as building the separation barrier beyond the 1967 line, demolitions and confiscation - including of EU funded projects.
(Bigots were happy and welcomed the forceful transfer of 8.500 Jews from Gaza 10 years ago! They saw no problem with population transfer then and still supporting stupidity of the 'two-state solution', because it is the first step toward destruction of Israel!)
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Iran has Made the First Step Toward 'Peace'!
In defiance of the international arms embargo, Iran placed an order for a huge fleet of 100 Russian IL78 MKI tanker aircraft (NATO: Midas) for refueling its air force in mid-flight. These tanker planes can simultaneously refuel six to eight warplanes. Their acquisition brings Israel, 1.200km away - as well the rest of the Middle East - within easy range of Iranian aerial bombardment.
(The ink is not dry yet on the fake agreement, but Iran has already made a move which proves that the critics are right!)
(.../freeworldexpress.com/) French do not Want to Reveal Truth about Arafat's Death
French prosecutor requests dropping Arafat death probe. The request to drop the probe into the leader's death on Tuesday comes two years after French investigators said the level of polonium 210 in Arafat's body was the result of naturally occurring processes involving radon gas, not deliberate poisoning.
(They try to avoid disclosure of the true cause of his death - AIDS! Isn't it strange that the original blood test and autopsy results have not been revealed after he died?)
Quote of the Week:
"Many people around the world have been fed a lie being victims of a massive propaganda hoax. The lie is that the Palestinians want freedom by having their own state. Actually, Israel knows full well that this can't possibly be about freedom because Arabs in Israel have more freedom than Arabs anywhere else in the Middle East. So if Palestinian leaders want a state, why do they spend so much time talking about killing Jews and glorifying those who do? What does glorifying murderers have to do with getting your own state? Why do their schools teach their children that Israel has no right to exist and must be destroyed? People always talk about what they want. The Palestinian leaders talk about erasing the Jewish state. That's why their leaders spend so much time demonizing Israel." - Mark Biltz, a Christian pastor.
Why is it racist for Jews to be proud about our national abilities and achievements? All nations are proud about and often even exaggerate the achievements of their compatriots and ancestors - Italians about art, Greeks about democracy, Germans about engineering. Jews have been immensely and disproportionally contributing to their population to the development and progress of humanity. It is time to become proud about it too and demand due acknowledgment!
Studies show descendants of Jews from Medieval Germany, throughout Europe have IQ 20% higher than global average.
According to a study performed by Cambridge University called, "From Chance to Choice: Genetic and Justice," Ashkenazi Jews have a median IQ of 117.
Not to brag or anything, but according to USA Today, "Ashkenazi Jews comprise 2.2% of the USA population, but they represent 30% of faculty at elite colleges, 21% of Ivy League students, 25% of the Turing Award winners, 23% of the wealthiest Americans, and 38% of the Oscar-winning film directors."
According to the Institute for Ethics & Emerging Technologies, "Since 1950, 29% of the Oslo awards (Nobel Prize) have gone to Ashkenazim, even though they represent only 0.25% of humanity. Ashkenazi achievement in this arena is 117 times greater than their population."(Note: Median IQ of Israel 96 - It is not yet the Jewish state!)

(.../freeworldexpress.com/) Muslim Riots Desecrate the Temple Mount
As Jews here commemorated the destruction of the First and Second Jewish Temples, masked Arabs on the Temple Mount used a mosque to amass stones, Molotov cocktails and other explosives with the intent of attacking Israeli police and Jewish worshipers ascending the holy site. The plan was reportedly to attack Jewish worshipers as Jews worldwide celebrate the Jewish fast day of Tisha B'Av, or the ninth day of the lunar Jewish month of Av. The day marks the anniversary of several major disasters in Jewish history, most notably the destruction of both the First and Second Jewish Temples in Jerusalem.
The violence was perpetrated by Muslim extremists on the Temple Mount over Tisha B'Av. Islamists used the Al Aqsa Mosque as a base for the attacks, barricading themselves inside with stockpiles of rocks, wooden boards, fireworks and other projectiles. The rioters had intended to use the deadly stockpile to launch attacks against Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount - Judaism's holiest site - as well as for attacks on security services.
A Sheikh had been spotted teaching martyrdom and terror to little children on the Temple Mount a week ago - and the Israel Police was standing idly by, doing nothing!
The situation in the Temple Mount compound today reflects a loss of control and absence of Israeli sovereignty. Hamas flags are waved proudly, undisturbed; provocations, attacks, and disruptions are aimed at Jews, who have returned to exile and been replaced by "landlords" who desire riots, not peace. (Please, watch the footage.)
No Condemnation from International Jew-Haters!
(They - the UN, the White House and EU - are always in rush to accuse Jews and Israel of any wrong doing. The word "ALLEGED" is always forgotten when an opportunity to blame Jews is presented. After being subjected to so much terror committed by 'Palestinians' and their Arab brothers; as well as anti-Semitic hate from the traditional international bigots Jews have the right to be outraged too!)

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
Most countries of the world are less than 300 years old. Many of them are occupying lands which they had conquered from their neighbours. Some nations have not even existed before their statehood was declared. Isn't it funny that the majority of those countries support creation of the state of the fake people, and are feeling that they have the right to dictate to Israel, one of the oldest nations, what the land of Jewish people is?
(.../freeworldexpress.com/) Professional Refugees Protest Against UNRWA
In the Gaza Strip and Jordan protesters claim that UNRWA has cut its health and educational services. In the Gaza Strip, where nearly half of the residents rely on UNRWA services, scores of protesters gathered outside the agency's offices. "UNRWA needs to be careful not to enrage our refugees," said Talal Abu Zarifa, a senior member of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. "Our people will erupt because they realize that this is a conspiracy against refugees, and not a financial matter."
(.../freeworldexpress.com/) Red Cross does not Want to Embarrass Hamas
The Red Cross relayed the request for details about the missing Israelis to Hamas, but they refused to divulge the response given by the Hamas terrorist organization regarding their fate. Aside from two Israelis - Avraham Mengistu and an unnamed Bedouin Israeli - who apparently entered Gaza months ago due to mental illness before being captured by Hamas, the terror group is holding the bodies of two IDF soldiers - Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin - who were killed in last summer's war.
(This deeply anti-Semitic organisation still has not changed its name to "Red Crystal"!)
(.../freeworldexpress.com) Right to Build in Judea and Samaria
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said that "it is our right and our duty to build in Judea and Samaria." "I think that for the last few years we saw that the real obstacle to peace is terror," she added. "We must keep on building this way," she added. "Half-a-million Jews are a reality that no element in the world could evict or uproot..."
US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians was the only resolution to the conflict there. Clinton's comments came hours after the UN's Middle East envoy, Nickolay Mladenov, told the UN Security Council that "the two-state solution is on life-support."
(After 20 year of "two-state solution" stupidity, it is a time to look at other options - Sinai or resettlement of this fake nation in other Arab/Muslim states! Neither Hillary nor other international political hypocrites want to do this.)

A US-led raid on the compound housing the Islamic State's 'chief financial officer' produced evidence that Turkish officials directly dealt with ranking ISIS members. Islamic State official Abu Sayyaf was responsible for directing the terror army's oil and gas operations in Syria . NATO member Turkey has long been accused by experts, Kurds, and even Joe Biden of enabling ISIS by turning a blind eye to the vast smuggling networks of weapons and fighters during the ongoing Syrian war.

On the first visit to Iran for 12 years by a French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius conveyed an invitation from President Francois Hollande to Iran's President Hassan Rouhani to visit France in November.

Only Israel is not Allowed to Fight Enemies!
White House justifies Turkey's use of anti-ISIS operation against Kurds. White House spokesman Alistair Baskey said that "Turkey has the right to defend itself against terrorist attacks by Kurdish rebels." Baskey went on to point out that "Turkey is a NATO ally of the US."

US secretary of state State John Kerry to travel to Egypt and Qatar and meet with allies in attempt to alleviate concerns over nuclear agreement signed with Tehran. In what appears to be a new low in US-Israel relations he will not visit Israel, "the best ally of the United States"! "I think I've had more meetings with an Israeli prime minister and more visits than any secretary of state in history. And I consider Bibi a friend..." State John Kerry said.

Quote of the Week:
This deal has nothing to do with us. We are not influenced by this deal at all. We aren't partners at the table. We are a meal on the menu!" - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"The US is holding the refugees over Israel's head, forcing Israel to accept its dictate. It may be that not only has the US agreed with the Arabs to force Israel back to the '67 lines, it has also agreed to keep the 'refugees' stateless as demanded by the Arab countries." - Ted Belman
Several times the United States and other Western 'friends' of Jewish people forced Israel to close its borders, after it won military conflicts with Muslim neighbours, and keep (.../freeworldexpress.com/) Arabs and other so-called Palestinians, who wanted to leave, on Israel controlled land!
...The US is the largest funder of UNRWA, (Reaching $400 million this year, one third of the UNRWA budget), could have predicated further funding of UNRWA on a humanitarian commitment to resettle UNRWA's client population: 5.4 million descendants of Arab refugees from the 1948 war, few of whom were even born by 1948 - into decent permanent living conditions.
(Being deeply in debt, the United States is paying $400 million a year to undermine the dream of the Jewish people - so much for the best friend!)
Yet the US-UNRWA accord mentions nothing of the kind.
Instead, the US-UNRWA accord mandates that refugee status is inherited and that thousands of these descendants of Arab refugees who have wallowed in the indignity of refugee life for 66 years, must continue to live in refugee squalor "until a comprehensive and just solution is secured", something which UNRWA will not allow to happen...
Just as the US accord with Iran places the burden of proof of any wrong-doing on the determination of the Iranian regime, the US allows UNRWA to determine if it has committed a security indiscretion.
At the same time, the US-UNRWA accord turns a blind eye to Hamas takeover of UNRWA facilities in Gaza. Sixteen years ago, the Gaza-based employees of the UN Relief and Works Agency held elections to choose union leaders.
Hamas took advantage of the campaign and took over the entire teachers association and workers association. By 2012, more the 90 percent of UNRWA employees had become Hamas supporters.
As a result of the takeover, Hamas created an apparatus whose mission was to maintain its grip on the Gaza-based UNRWA schools...
(The UN allows the terrorist organisation to build terror tunnels, training camps and use schools for anti-Israel indoctrination. The 'Useless Nazi' pays salaries to Hamas members, instead of caring for the welfare of Gaza residents!)
Steven Shamrak born in the Soviet Union and now lives in Melbourne Australia. He is a qualified civil engineer and software specialist, and was an active participant in the nascent Moscow Zionist movement before he arrived in Australia 25 years ago. Believing that "a sense of pride, nationhood and connection to all Jewish land" is missing from Jewish hearts, he spends his spare time educating Jews and non-Jews about Jewish history in the Middle East. He worked as a construction engineer at the Moscow Olympic Games project and as a computer consultant in Australia. For several years he has been publishing an Internet editorial letter about the Arab-Israel conflict since August 2001.
Dear Friends, this independent editorial has been published since 2001. It is not sponsored by or affiliated with any government or political party. The aim is to present Jewish point of view on Arab-Israel conflict, propagates and motivates Jewish people and our true friends to uphold ideals and inspirations of true Zionism - Jewish National independence movement.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel remained committed to treating war wounded from Syria. Israel has treated more than 3,000 war wounded from Syria in what it describes as a humanitarian gesture. In defiance of the United States, which is demanding that the Palestinian Authority completely stop financial rewards to families of terrorist “Martyrs” (Shahids), the PA is now raising the payments to the “Martyrs’” families.
Israel unveiled the latest addition to its multilevel missile defense system with David’s Sling. The two-stage radar and electro-optic guided system’s range is three times that of Iron Dome. The system is designed to shoot down incoming rockets with ranges of 25 to 190 miles (40-300 kilometers), targeting mostly the missiles that were fired by the Lebanese Hezbollah organization toward Israel in recent years.
The Jews had no choice but to agree and the Palestine Mandate was signed in 1922. This territory amounted to 78% of what was promised to the Jews and it ultimately became Jordan. The deletion of the east bank became permanent contrary to Article 5 which prohibited any removal of land from the Mandate
I am going to make some statements about the USA as might be found in the newspaper of a mythical communist country called, ‘The Democratic Marxist Republic of Californication.’ In doing so, I am going to be making statements that a casual world news observer or internet savvy foreigner might actually consider to be factual based on extensive exposure to western media.
Disciplining yourself to pay attention to the actual words used and the actual meaning of the sentence is very important, especially so since so much of what purports to be news is little more than the writer’s opinion about the facts of the news. Unfortunately, people easily succumb to emotive language such as ‘Donald Trump demonstrates his stupidity again!’ Such a headline is designed to reinforce in the minds of those who don’t like Trump, that he is an idiot. Another thing of which to be careful when reading is the inclination to ‘interpret’ what we read within the context of our religious, cultural and political worldviews.
When you stand to speak you are doing more than reciting words. You are in fact engaged in communicating with an audience your opinions, ideas, feelings, passions and/or knowledge on a subject. They expect you to express yourself with feeling and passion and to actually know what you are talking about. Therefore it is essential that you KNOW what you are talking about – and – show the appropriate body language, gestures, actions and emotions associated with your topic.

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
