Despite the anti-Semitic (you KNOW I mean anti-Jewish!) propaganda, Israel is the ONLY country in the Mid-East that provides equal rights to ALL citizens - regardless of religion. It is the ONLY true democracy. It is the only one that has full participation of all religions in their legislative body and the governing/administrative positions.
From Aish.com, in just the Science and Technology category (there are more at the link):
All that science superiority stuff probably comes from the fact that the Israeli scientists are NOT spending their research time concentrating on how to kill other human beings in the most barbaric ways possible - unlike scientists from Muslim countries.
- Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in the workforce, 63% more than the U.S. It also has the most physicians and engineers per capita.10
- Israel's scientific research institutions are ranked 3rd in the world.11
- Israel is ranked 2nd in space sciences.12
- Israel produces the 3rd most scientific papers per capita, and the most in stem cell science.13

- Israeli companies invented the drip irrigation system, discovered the world’s most used drug for multiple sclerosis, designed the Pentium NMX Chip technology and the Pentium 4 and Centrium microprocessors, created Instant Messenger (ICQ), and Israeli cows produce more milk per cow than any other in the world!
