Israeli Innovation - The Best of 2015; What's Coming in 2016

posted by mysababa admin over 1 year ago

BDS… see my other answer, please.What make Israel so innovative? The million dollar question. It's a combination of things… top research, curiosity, patriotism, drive, risk taking, tikkun olam and an existential need to survive. Israel has the greatest number of scientists and engineers per capita in the world. Israel spends more on r&d relative to its size than any other country in the world. And Israel's main natural resource is its brain power.

Thanks graylock, and this answer is also for you bibs (below): The simple answer is 'yes, selectively'. I'm always conscious of our goal in closing the perceptual gap I mentioned in response to 'themodel' which for the most part keeps us focused on major news networks, press and outlets that impact public opinion and in turn foreign policy towards Israel. Giving Israeli outlets more coverage overseas through our community is something we do when for example that Israeli outlet becomes the very source of a major western news outlet. As the oxygen is already there, we'll be sure to call out both the Israeli source and the western outlet. You mention Haaretz, so let me share a couple links with you that make the above point by example. http://honestreporting.com/haaretz-creates-non-existent-apartheid-state/http://honestreporting.com/haaretz-apartheid-clarification-too-little-too-late/

Uniting and building relationships with other student groups is a fantastic idea! I highly encourage students to reach out as broadly as possible. There's always going to be a percentage of people who hate Israel - but the majority of students are neutral or apathetic. If you reach out and build positive relationships, it can have a very big effect! Pro-Israel students have a lot of potential to create coalitions and relationships with a very broad range of students and groups.
