Israelis often boast about their contribution to science and high tech, but they overstate their contribution be a large margin. When pressed for specifics, they go off on a tangent and change the subject. Nations that are preoccupied with religious tyranny, sexism and racism do not do so well with high tech. Of course, in Israel's case they have an advantage. America gives them much high tech, and access to more. America also provides billions for R&D in Israel and makes direct investments in Israeli companies. In spite of being propped up like this, we see Israel dragging their behinds on the nuclear issue.
