From a country smaller than NJ, Israel has been a master of innovation. My favorite is their use of medicinal marijuana in treating cancer patients. Why can Israel do this while the US is stuck in political rangling, self interest, and out and out abuse of the system?

And the use of bombs shells tanks gunboats and more to kill!

Thanks for this, Beatrice. Just imagine what Israel could achieve if it didn't have to waste so much of its manpower and resources on ensuring it doesn't get wiped out by the savages that surround it.

Leave it to Israel again to come up with more technology and developments!

You are right on that Stan! They would probably come up with double what they do now if they didn't have to spend the money on defense to keep the lunatics at bay!!

Thanks Beatrice for this interesting and exciting story of some the greatest advances in medicine and science from this dynamo of a little country. What a bleaker world it would be without it.

All those who hate this country so much should give some thought to what would be lost if Israel were to be exterminated by those who a obsessed with doing just that - those who contribute nothing to human advancement. What have those Muslim occupied lands that surround Israel contributed to humanity? Medicine? Science? Anything except suicide vests, oppression, death and intolerance?

There is a reason that with only 14 million Jews in the world they have earned 185 Nobel Prizes, mostly for science and medicine, and with 1.5 Billion Muslims in the world they have only earned 10 - mostly for 'peace' (and most of those have been persecuted for not being 'real' Muslims or for standing up to the hate and intolerance that Islam teaches toward all non-Muslims.

If Israel were to be taken over by the Arabs/Muslims this wonderful light of creativity would go out forever. But you won't find all those who rage against Jews and Israel reading articles like this. Sad.

This list just underscores the stupidity of demanding from Israel lands to give to Arabs!

Arab states now already have 10,000 times more land than Israel. They don't know what to do with that land, other than to let foreign workers to get oil out of it. The population of Aran countries does NOT have prosperity, democracy and human rights.

Giving Arabs more land, or creating 23rd Arab state won't help the World even a bit. Giving it to Israel means more healed people world wide, more technology developed to create jobs and make life easier, more modernity pushed to the Middle East, otherwise drawning in Islamist hatred and backwardness.

Carola..David Car is a hit and run opportunist! He never has anything good to say about anything good...he only adds negative just like the Palestinians!

This article was awesomely very interesting! With our current government administration, a Muslim sympathizing administration, we were kept in the dark on some of these interesting facts that we should have ran into in our daily lives!!!

Thank you Rob and Jay for informing us of these magnificent facts!!!
