In 2019 the BDS Movement attempted to gain significant ground in their efforts to de-legitimize Israel. This neo-Nazi movement continues to spread on college campuses, and on the social media platforms. It is also being legitimized by members of the mainstream media, and in certain political party’s throughout the world. In fact, a supporter of the BDS Movement was almost elected Prime Minister of Britain in 2019. In the United States many of the leading presidential candidates are showing open disdain for Israel at the behest of the BDS Movement.
However, despite the onslaught of attacks Israel fought back. Israel handed the BDS Movement some massive defeats, made possible by Israel’s expertise in high-tech, digital health, agriculture, water, security, defense, and many other fields. Here are just some of the numbers from 2019. Israel’s economy grew by 3.3 percent, compared to 1.1 percent for the average OECD country. Israel’s exports surged to a record $114 billion. Israel’s M&A deals were valued at $20.4 billion. Israel’s tech exits saw a 102 percent increase, reaching $9.9 billion dollars. Israel’s start-ups raised a record 8.19 billion dollars. Israel also welcomed a record $4.5 million tourists.
These are all incredible numbers for a tiny country of 9 million citizens. However, Israel and it’s supporters must never be complacent. The members of the BDS Movement are out for blood, and will not give up. This war will continue in 2020 and beyond. Rest assured that Israel and her supporters will be ready.

24 things that made us happy in 2019
Forget the awful news that dominates most media; 2019 was a fabulous year for many reasons. We look back on some of the best.
By ISRAEL21c, December 25, 2019:
One of the joys of working for ISRAEL21c is that our focus is on the positive. While the media generally dwells on all the awful things taking place around the world, we seek out heartwarming stories, the stories of people trying to make a difference and to improve our planet.
It’s a focus I never take for granted. When every day you report on people using their creativity to come up with innovations or solutions that will impact people’s well-being, or help the environment, or enrich our technological world, you receive a daily dose of optimism and hopefulness.
That’s what we all need. In today’s fast news cycle, it’s hard not to be overwhelmed by the negative and it’s easy to forget the goodness that lies at the heart of most people.
As 2019 comes to a close, a year that has not been easy for many people around the world, we decided to look back at the stories that made us the happiest this year and to share them with you.
Some of them moved us, some impressed us, and some just made us smile. All of them gave us hope. MORE…….
