ABC of Israeli Apartheid
The alphabet of Israeli racism
Most Israelis believe that they live in a democratic state, although there is no constitution and 25% of the population has no equal rights. Religious laws control family lives, marriages and divorces, food supply, burial and labor laws. Jews cannot marry Christians or Muslims, and Palestinian Israelis cannot live in a Jewish communal settlement. The population of Israel includes 5.8 million Jews and almost 2 million Palestinians. Although these Palestinians are Israeli citizens, they have no equal rights by low, and they live separately from the Jewish citizens. Israel also controls the lives of about 4 million people in the occupied territories in the west bank and Gaze. These people have no human rights, no freedom of movement or freedom of speech or even the right to life, liberty and security.
The Israeli apartheid is not only the official policy of the government. It has deep roots in the Israeli culture and most Jewish Israelis accept it as part of their lives.
The book undermines the image of Israel as a democratic state, and reveals the racial substructure of Zionism. It presents the paradoxical character of the Israeli culture, and the basic racist assumptions, which are accepted by all levels of Israeli society. It identifies Israeli racism as a disease, not as an ideology.
The book is a personal testimony by a member of Israeli society, whose family has lived there for ten generations, and who has witnessed the degeneration of his culture from childhood. It is an authentic eye witness account of one who cannot be accused of anti-Semitism. The book presents 100 common words in contemporary Hebrew (in alphabetic order), and reveals their hidden racist meaning.

The art of creating a sense of a safe place in a changing world
Our brain is the most sophisticated computer, in which our emotional process plays a central role. Emotional Training is a software that improves the functionality of the emotional proces. The book Emotional Training is a practical guide to emotional management.
How can we cope with our natural death anxiety and create the sense of a safe place in the changing world? How can we efficiently cope with crisis and trauma? How can we learn to create relationships and find love? How can we realize our potential and be happy? And can we do all this without approaching psychotherapy or counseling or coaching?
Dr. Dror Green has researched hundreds approaches to psychotherapy, and found that they all ignore our inborn emotional skills, which enable us to attune ourselves to reality, avoid crisis, realize our potential and be happy. Emotional Training is a simple and practical way of life, based on improving our emotional skills and creating a sense of a safe place.
Emotional Training is based on a new concept of human nature
The myth of the 'mind' and the belief in the separation between body and mind have been the corner stones of Western culture for more than 2,000 years, but they remain vague. Dr. Dror Green has defined a new, revolutionary concept of human nature that regards emotions as physical responses to stimuli from reality. This concept is compatible with new researches in neuroscience and the understanding that empathy is inborn. The emotional process is not a mystical concept, as is customarily assumed, but the autopilot that navigates our lives, warns us of dangers and directs us to a safe place.
Emotional Training suggests a new understanding of our lives
Emotional Training is an efficient path to a healthy and productive life, and it also enables us to review all aspects of our lives: interpersonal relationships, professional relationships, social and political systems, thought and research, creativity and art. Emotional Training supplies us with efficient ways of coping with the challenges of the 21stcentury, global warming and the Internet revolution.
