5. #1 You obviously believe.....
....you are better than others. I don't find that so civilised.
Instead, let us honour the achievments of Prof. Ur. Congratulations!
6. Thanks to Britain for slightly reducing the isolation of IL
This is an important international award because it helps Israel to be a little less isolated in the world. Israel would be wise to reciprocate and show it appreciates the British gesture. How about sending rabbi Ovadia Yosef to pay homage to Isaac Newton's memory?

8. Israeli English professor ,...
Born and educated in Great Britain, talking about bragging and - I bet if she did something bad she would a just a Brit ;) ,...
Much of the Israeli population is made up of immigrants or children of immigrants. Their influence on Israeli is arguably much greater than that of immigrants to the US. So yes, we are proud of Prof. Ur's accomplishments, especially since the majority of her life and her entire professional career were spent in Israel. I don't think we should apologize for taking pride in her achievements.
