The number of university-level degrees handed out in
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%).

The best way to fight BDS is not to fight it at all.
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
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.

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!)
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.)

A meeting of EU foreign ministers blasts
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!)
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?)

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!)
