    They will buy arms from Israel but not a bionic eye or farming technology to grow food in deserts! Why? On reports that Israel has exported security equipment over the past five years to Pakistan and four Arab countries, according to a British government report. Israeli scientists have also developed a technology that may enable people who are blind from birth to see, with the help of a bionic contact lens. “This technology is good news for humanity, especially in bringing sight to people blind from birth without requiring surgery or damaging other vital senses or organs,” says Prof. Zeev Zalevsky, head of Electrical Engineering and Nanophotonics at Bar-Ilan University, who headed the research team. Though there are no interest or takers yet from the Middle East or Pakistan, though many blind can use this technology. But Israel has exported security equipment over the past five years to Pakistan and four Arab countries, according to a British government report. Israel has exported security equipment over the past five years to Pakistan and four Arab countries, according to a British government report. The report, which deals with British government permits for arms and security equipment exports, says that in addition to Pakistan, Israel has exported such equipment to Egypt, Algeria, the United Arab Emirates and Morocco.These grimy malodorous Islamic countries make Israel the monster to deflect awareness from their own misdeeds but will take Israel's missiles to exterminate. Why not establish diplomatic relationship? Why not import the farming technology and knowledge how to raise farm yields with low water basis. Instead of killer security weapons These double standards are brazenly shocking. Muslims have an open license to kill each other, the killing fields of Islam are horrendously unreported. Iraq Iran fought for 9 years 2.5 m lives lost. Saddam gulped Kuwait and set a stage for an unending war. The way Assad is annihilating opposition labelling the freedom seekers of Homa as Al Qaeda members, Gaddafi open season on its own for well over 25-30 years. When Serbs were eliminating Kosovons it was the West who came to assist, Saddam was actually exporting arms to Milosovic. When Sarajevo had no water in Bosnian conflict as Serb had stopped it , it was Jewish philanthropists like George Soros who came forward and helped raised funds to pump water into the besieged and encircled town. Go back centuries and you will find that a primary enigma of technological record is why some societies have foregone progress and chosen backwardness by failing to adopt technological advancements. Although the Ottomans were quick to adopt advancements in military technology, they waited almost three centuries to allow the first book to be printed in Arabic script. Though guns were accepted, printing presses were a big no for centuries by the Ottomans. Guns helped victories and expansion instantaneously whereas books change a society within that takes a while to sprout.
