    your right Jews in post war Germany and later on in Russia and the US did contribute a lot to modern particle physics – As the standard model was introduced to the world by Glashow – a Jew - But there are also many others – like Salem – a Muslim from Pakistan, Planck, Schrodinger, Higgs... But I ask you where is the great Israeli contribution to modern physics – shouldn't in your theory a country full of Jews contribute in an extraordinary way to modern science – In my opinion I think the rest of the World will manage in particle physics without Israel, but I don't think Israel will manage without the World – modern science is just to expensive for one country alone and normally it's very productive if people from a different culturally background work together on a subject as they see things with different eyes, to say we are better, stronger, smarter, because we are white, Asian, German, Jewish or what ever never brought development to mankind it's just the other way around and leads into darkness. So see it as a chance for Israel, as a chance for mankind that Israeli scientist can now contribute to worlds knowledge by working to gather with scientist from all over the world, by using the most sophisticated machine build by mankind.
