This Is Israel

If you have heard or seen the State of Israel being covered in the press or the media it was probably connected with politics, war or terrorism (fighting it). Unfortunately many have been fed and taught to associate Israel with negativity based on biased news reports and a well organized Palestinian, Muslim propaganda machine.
While Israel is the size of New Jersey her discoveries, R&D and national innovation reaches heights that only a few can compete with.

The modern day State of Israel was born on May 14, 1948 and will be 64 years old this May. 
 In the following post I would like to share with you the accomplishments and contributions that this small infant Jewish State has given to the world in only 64 years.

Israel's actual size is 22,500 km or 8,500 sq. miles and has a population of 7.9 million people. 5,900,200 are Jewish. Arabs and Muslims constitute 20.5% of Israel's citizens and other religions and people represent the remaining 4% or so. Israel is 150th smallest country in the world and is home to only 1\1000 of the world's population.
Since Israel's birth there have been 10 Nobel Prizes awarded to Israelis. These include several Nobel Peace prizes as well as Prizes in Economics, literature and Chemistry. Israel has won more noble prizes per capita than any other country in the world.

  • Israel is largest immigrant absorbing nation in the world.
  • Israel is the only country in the world that entered the 21st century with a net gain # of trees
  • 90% of Israeli homes use solar energy to heat water.
  • Israel is ranked 2nd in the world when it comes to space sciences 
  • Israel produces more scientific papers per capita than any other country in the world.

Motorola company and R&D department in Israel is responsible for the cellular phone as we know it today. Cellphone cameras and Apps are flowing from Israel like Milk and Honey but here is a new company that is merging what seem to be two opposing ideas. Healthy Living and Mobile phone use.

According to most sources there are over 7 BILLION cell phone users in the world! While Mobile Apps and social media programs are flooding the market, Tawkon is making sure we can TALK ON  while living longer and healthier lives. 
Over the past couple of years Cellular radiation has become a concern for over 7 Billion cell phone users. Studies show that radiation from cell phones can cause Cancer, Tumors, Infertility, Pregnancy complications, memory loss, loss of bone density and more. Here is a lengthy list of articles on the Cellular radiation debate.
  TAKWON has developed a revolutionary APP to precisely measure the amount of radiation being emitted from a cellphone at any given time. The good news is the APP is designed to help us lower that radiation so that we can continue playing angry birds without turning into one! 

Tawkon not only gives instant radiation levels and warnings but instructs the user with advice to actively lower the amount of radiation emitted from the Mobile Phone. 

How real is this App? 
Let's just say, it seems Steve Jobbs was very uncomfortable with his customers being aware of just how high the radiation gets and refused to allow Tawkon in the AppStore!

This is one FREE app that is priceless! 

Israeli Innovation in Medicine
Two companies making a difference with medicine and patients.

A company whose innovation has made Medical testing less invasive. No more needles for blood pressure or sugar levels. 
"Cnoga Medical is an innovative developer of easy-to-use, TouchFree and non-invasive medical devices.
It is Cnoga’s belief that the time is soon approaching when most blood tests will be conducted by the patients themselves, in the comfort of their own homes, and with a simple non-invasive device."

This company is right out of the future! No more Colonoscopy or other instruments used to get a view of internal organs, just swallow a PILLCAM! This is truly an unbelievable breakthrough to the medical field. 
There are 3 different pills already out on the market and more pills are being developed in order to reach different areas. This will truly change the medical world as well as that of the patients.
Military Innovation and Defense
Since Israel's declaration of independence she has been battling with security threats. Whether it be urban war far, terrorism, Missile Defense systems, fire power or tanks, Israel's military innovation and R&D has helped countries around the world fight terror.
One of Israel's leading companies in Advanced Defense Systems in Rafael.
This revolutionary company has developed an array of defense weapons and systems. There is nothing that says FUTURISTIC like Rafael.
During the last Gaza missile attacks on Israel the Rafael developed Iron Dome missile defense system had proven itself with a success rate well over  70%.
"The Iron Dome is an effective and innovative mobile defense solution for countering short range rockets and 155 mm artillery shell threats with ranges of up to 70 km in all weather conditions, including low clouds, rain, dust storms or fog.
The system uses a unique interceptor with a special warhead that detonates any target in the air within seconds.  The Iron Dome is a cost effective system that can handle multiple threats simultaneously and efficiently.

The Iron Dome system has been selected by the Israeli Defense Ministry as the best system offering the most comprehensive defense solution against a wide range of threats in a relatively short development cycle and at low cost."

A defense system designed by Rafael gives Military vehicles the ultimate defense against missile attack. Whether it is from the air or a land missile the Trophy is a revolutionary automatic defense system that keeps an array of military vehicles protected. This is right out of Star Wars!

Anti Terror and Urban Warfare

Israel is often facing Guerrilla and terrorist warfare. Tactical and strategic training that deals with almost any situation is being taught to many countries throughout the world. Often the US Marines can be found training with the IDF and exchanging ideas and training methods. 
One company called CALIBER3 specializes in anti-terror and urban warfare training. They are well known for training IDF troops as well forces from other countries including the US.

While Israel is still in her infant age of 64 she has proven to be a light unto the nations in many different areas. Israel has developed, innovated and contributed to the world  in numerous fields and plans to continue to help make the world a better place!

Here are just a few example of what Israel has accomplished in 60+ years. 

For those Anti Israel activists looking to boycott Israel, here are two videos you definitely want to see! These videos will give you a detailed list of things you probably use but shouldn't since they were developed in....ISRAEL!
