At BibleInteract, we were completely taken by surprise to learn that many people, from the age of 50 and younger, including merican Jews, do not know the dramatic story of how Israel became a legally recognized state. That understanding is essential for an accurate view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today. Therefore, this series of engaging conversations between Anne Davis of BibleInteract and her guest, Laura Green, who is an active Jewish advocate for the state of Israel, addresses this untold story of Israel’s return to the land that God has promised to them. The sessions are organized historically, so you can follow the story of Israel’s return from Jewish immigration under the Ottoman Empire, to the United Nations vote to give Israel its own state, and finally to Israel’s struggle to defend its country and its people.
Session 8: Israel's Unique Economy
Learning to live in the close confines of a tank, army buddies often go into business as a team after the army. Their ability to work together has led to a creative explosion of new technological ideas, and their persistence brings the ideas to production. The high tech industry is now the #1 industry in Israel. The book, Startup Nation, records the secret of Israel's economic success.
