Israel is literally curing cancer, while their enemy’s only contribution to mankind is different, more terrible ways to kill the Jews, and the left unequivocally aligns with the savages. Dark times, indeed.
Israel — repairing the world.

Israel named ‘innovation champion’ by leading American trade organization CTA
The organization also praised Israel’s role in the development of self-driving vehicles, notably thanks to Jerusalem-based Mobileye’s world-leading computer vision capabilities.
By Eytan Halon, Jerusalem Post, January 9, 2019:
Israel has been named as one of 16 global “innovation champions” by leading American trade organization Consumer Technology Association (CTA).
The CTA rankings published on Tuesday evaluate countries according to their innovation friendliness based on 14 different categories, with “champions” typically outperforming other countries in terms of freedom, broadband, entrepreneurial activity, resiliency and self-driving vehicles.
First-time honorees Israel and Germany joined 14 other countries on the list announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, with Israel’s rise from “Innovation Leader” to “Innovation Champion” primarily due to its unrivaled expenditure on research and development and after producing four “unicorn” start-ups – companies worth at least $1 billion – in the last decade.
“These countries are world-class leaders in growing innovation,” CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro in a keynote address to conference attendees.
“When it comes to technology and policy, they value disruptive innovators. To be leaders in innovation, nations must drop protectionist rules and end barriers that limit them from creating the next great startups that will change the world for the better.”
CTA cited Israel’s unmatched 4.3% of GDP expenditure on research and development, highly-skilled workforce and the 47% of students graduating university with a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) degree as key factors in its innovation success.
