1. Israel A to Z - 60 first references to Israel
This "Israel 60, A to Z' glossary serves as first reference to 60 frequently discussed issues about Israel in the Middle East, for the public and for the non-professional writer - like the writer of a Letter to an Editor. Its reader can see in one minute the essence of a subject, perhaps also an eye-opener to non-conventional wisdom - in place of politically correct clichés we read and hear far too often through mass media.
This one-minute essence may be about diverse subjects, from Israel's history, daily life and achievements, to challenges, happy news or controversies; and their intensive but often dubious media coverage. These may be brought to you in various forms; as a short formal encyclopedia entry, a Reader's Letter which hits the nail on the head, a humoristic piece or as an answer to a hostile question.
Language used may be US or British English - or that International English which hasn't its own country, but is used by hundreds of millions in the world.
Before you read any entry of your choice, we suggest to read our two background articles: the first one is the lead entry at ‘A': "A Birthday Blessing for Israel in her 60's"; the second is at ‘I': "Israel in the Middle East" (abridged from: "A View from the Eye of the Storm" by Professor Haim Harari).
Wishing You a useful, inspiring and enjoyable reading of this A to Z,
