“When it comes to the power of the mind—the development of industry in that wasted desert continent—versus savages who don’t want to use their minds, then if one cares about the future of civilization, don’t wait for the government to do something. Give whatever you can. This is the first time I’ve contributed to a public cause: helping Israel in an emergency.” Ayn Rand
Israel’s tech sector continues to break records. In the first 6 months of 2019, a staggering $3.9 billion dollars was invested in Israeli start-ups. Israel’s more established tech companies are being sold for billions of dollars as well. Multi-national technology companies paid a whopping $14.5 billion for Israeli companies in the first half of 2019 alone. These are astonishing figures for a small country, and represent another humiliating defeat for the neo-Nazi Boycott the Jews (BDS) Movement. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar have no chance against Israel.
Pay for slay versus ….. this.

Record-High $3.9 Billion Invested in Israeli High-Tech Companies in H1 2019
Ministry of Economy and Industry, August 7, 2019:
A new report finds that Israeli high-tech companies and startups raised a record $3.87 billion across 254 deals in the first half of 2019, with $2.32 billion raised across 125 deals in Q2 alone – the highest amount for any quarter since 2013.
The report, prepared by the IVC Research Center and the ZAG-S&W law firm, points to a maturing high-tech ecosystem in the Startup Nation, with more capital raised across fewer deals compared to the 2014-2018 average. Late-stage companies saw their investments hit record highs, while early-stage investments were stable and mid-stage financing declined.
The three largest Q2 deals totaled $670 million – nearly 29 percent of the total raised in the quarter:
- Insurance technology startup Lemonade raised $300 million.
- com, a workplace software company, raised $250 million.
- Cybersecurity company Sentinel Labs raised $120 million.
Companies operating in the artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and big data clusters attracted the most investments, as they have for the past seven years. AI-focused companies raised $1.509 billion, companies involved in cybersecurity raised $993 million, and companies in the big data cluster raised $816 million.
Other leading recipients included companies in autotech ($560 million), fintech ($531 million), and IoT ($432 million).
Watch PM Netanyahu address the Democrat Party congressional delegation visiting Israel. The squad tried to sabotage this trip. Many of the Democrats who are now visiting Israel will be primaried by the radical Left in the near future.
