    Why every time one of the big "monsters" of technology acquires a start-up is it from Israel?
    Are the big technology players of the world biased?
    Why we never read about Google buying a start-up from Egypt or Apple buying a start-up from Lebanon or Facebook buying some Jordanian start-up?

    Are the Israelis the only people interested in technology in the middle-east? Is that a demographic matter?

    Where are the contributions of the other middle-east countries in the areas of reearch and technology?

    Most of the contributions were blown up by Islamic fundamentalists long ago. But don't fret, many middle-eastern countries remain on the forefront of IED technology.

    What are you a small child that believes if he sticks his fingers in his ears and shouts "Not Listening!" loud enough then suddenly the world will change to be the way he likes it? The state of Israel exists and it has an amazing culture, a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an army capable of defending it. What there is not ,is a Palestinian Arab state. And, if the Palestinian Arabs do not start negotiating responsibly, they will never get one.

Every successful person has had failures but repeated failure is no guarantee of eventual success.
