Some headlines and summaries from JTA

Israeli firms said on WMD list

The British government has reportedly listed Israeli companies believed to have taken part in weapons-of-mass-destruction programs.

Eleven Israeli companies appear on a recently issued report by the MI-5 security service titled “Companies and Organizations of Proliferation Concern,” Britain’s Guardian newspaper reported Saturday.

Also accused of using private firms for their WMD programs are Iran, Pakistan, India, Syria and Egypt. The Guardian said MI-5 compiled the data to help warn British companies against working with foreign agencies linked to WMDs.

Israeli media speculated that the MI-5 list is unlikely to include private firms in Israel, and probably focuses on government agencies involved with Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor.

Helping Israel online

Israel has launched an e-learning program for those who want to help its global image.

“Stating the Case,” a monthlong course sponsored by the Jewish Agency and Foreign Ministry, will begin Nov. 7 and feature sessions on Middle East history and major diplomatic challenges faced by Israel.

The time commitment is two to four hours a week, and registration — at — costs $60.
