Bentley manufactures and markets a portfolio of approximately 130 pharmaceutical products in various dosages and strengths, as both branded generic and generic products, to physicians, pharmacists and hospitals. Bentley markets its products primarily in Spain, but also sells generic pharmaceuticals in other parts of the European Union. These efforts are supported by finished dosage and active pharmaceutical ingredient manufacturing facilities. Bentley's generic pharmaceutical operations generated revenues of approximately $114 million for the year ended December 31, 2007.

Commenting on today's transaction, Shlomo Yanai, Teva's President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "This is an important acquisition for Teva, as the combination of Teva Spain and Bentley will provide us with a platform to capture a leading position in the fast-growing Spanish generic pharmaceutical market.

We are extremely pleased that we will have Bentley's strong management and work force, complementing our existing management team, to support our growth strategy."

Why Cultural Zionism

The evidence now indicates the following:

Based upon interviews( since 1973 ) of both Arab - Palestinians, and Israeli Students, and an American co - joined interviews of Jewish and Non-Jewish students at various institutions of higher education within Western, New York, and Ontario, Canada, I have established a working perception of the realities which exist within the Middle- East. It was from an article by Avramham Burg, The End of Zionism, republished in The Independent Media, Monday, September 15, 2003, from an article first publsihed in The Guardian, which got me going on this project.

Of course I wrote the only reaction, though sad'ly un-editied, to this, see

Sad'der yet it was deleted. as of March 2, 2006, by the radical leftists who I discovered was herself Jewish.Moreover, and largely due to my other past associations with International Student/Scholars, agian within higher education of Western, New York, I have compared their experiences, and informaion reguarding Israel to the Arabs' and Israelis' interviews, especially from those who recieved their under graduate education in the Soviet Union. This comparison revealed a deeper and darker side. This under-lined the real danger in Mr. Avramham Burg's statements, and other similar articles within both the present media, and especially in the internet Independent Media it self. The follow through studies, as a result of all the interviews, which dicated the direction of research, as above proved to be shocking.Foremost discovery was a critical and alarming Judaic studies conducted by the Soviet Union on who or what are The Jewish Peoples', initiated by Joseph Stalin, who was to face a personal anxiety of acquiring a Jewish son - in - law, by his daughter's marriage, and further acknowledging in his eye his grandson is Jewish.

Later on, while Arab students were being educated in the Soviet Union, these Judaic studies were shared, and assisted in the early crafted development of the Soviet pedagogic alumni linkages to the infamous Anti - Zioinist Resolution.What these studies revealed is that in essence, there is a sort of collective vulnerability see more by clicking your mouse now and right here.
