Some of the good news about Israel all in one place

A lot of the good news about anywhere never gets told. The media seems fixated on making us miserable, negative and hostile, especially towards its favourite targets such as the Church, Christianity, Jews, Israel, the West etc. etc.

Trying to redress the balance is an uphill struggle. Here's a website and a book that contributes to the struggle

“Tiny Dynamo: How One of the World’s Smallest Countries Is Producing Some of Our Most Important Inventions,”  by Marcella Rosen, chronicles 21 Israeli inventions that improve our lives. Close behind the USA, Canada, and China in number of startups, Israel is a true incubator of innovation. Also included in the book is a timeline (reprinted here) of major Israeli inventions since 1948. Available on Amazon.


A little bit of the preface to the book reads as follows:
While everyone has been focused on the country’s decades of military conflicts, Israel has quietly become the most energetic, ambitious, go-go incubator of entrepreneurialism and invention the planet has ever seen.
It’s true: Israel is a barrier-breaking dynamo of a kind never before witnessed in history. Acre-for-acre, citizen-for-citizen, no place is churning out more ideas, more products, more procedures and devices and technologies than this tiny strip of land along the Mediterranean.
And the work that Israel is turning out is saving and improving lives around the world, every day.
