1. about 181 Jewish laureates in History now. Mazal Tov Israel!
mary of Bethany ,   singapore   (10.06.11)
There are 10 Israeli-laureates in Israel alone. About 181 Jews (including those with at least half Jewish ancestry)in the whole world have been awarded the Nobel Prize, which is about 22% of all recipients worldwide between 1901. Just in America alone, Jews Nobel laureates is about 36% of all US recipients. Jews is just 0.2% of the world's population! By surviving after about 1900 year of dispersal all over the world, yet you can come together back into the Land, yearning to "NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM"! By not forgetting your Hebrew tongue after so many years i foreign lands, as Hebrew is one of the most ancient Language. By not forsaking your worship in G-D of the Scripture while in foreign lands for 1900 over years! By Being yourself, you ALL deserve to be proud.

Not one born and educated in Israel and an another one in line with most of his work/achievements affined to his tenure abroad, mostly in US institutions,...
3. I'm not too worried

Obviously, it would be splendid if Israel did not have to invest so much in defense and security issues, but given the rabble that borders Israel on all sides, we have little choice. That said, I note for the record that well over one-half of the chemotherapy protocols that are in use throughout the world today were developed in Israel. I note that Israel is in the vanguard of information technology -- both hardware and software. Not too shabby for a small country, surrounding by enemies who seek her destruction. Not too shabby at all.
4. To: No. 2

Dripping with jealousy, are you? For good reason. What ersatz "Palestinian" has ever made any contribution to civilization or the sciences? Good luck researching that one.
5. and not only what you said, Sarah B.

additionally, the gentleman has the faint beginnings of a Iowa-Midwest accent. Which is gorgeous.
6. #2- Split always lies

Lies are not as persuasive as truths.
7. #2 in their body are Jewish Blood, no matter where they born
mary of Bethany ,   singapore   (10.07.11)
... Jews for almost 1900 years has been yearning to return to Jerusalem: crying "Next Year in Jerusalem". No matter where they are they are still Jewish People, the Chosen Nation. "thanks" to the Romans during 70 AD to 135 AD, Jews are scattered all over the world, thus G-D use Jews to bless the different nations that they resided in. they contributed in Technology, Medicine, Law, Education... in building up the countries like Singapore (where i am). in Singapore alone, Jews helped to build up our military and Law systems, long before i was born. Question: what did muslims contribute to the world, say in Europe or Asia? Burka? Sharia Law?
8. Sarah B, tks for replying Spilt. Happy Yom Kippur.
mary of Bethany ,   singapore   (10.07.11)
there are about 200 over happy Jews living in Singapore i guess. very grateful to the pionneer-Jewish People who help build up very young Singapore. Singapore is just like Israel, surrounded by radical Islamic States like Indonesia (in your case, Arab States) that hesitate not to condemn us over tiny issues. Sarah B, never leave this talkback, OK? you are like coffee to me, addicted to daily reading your punch and blow to the Leftists. guess Ynet will be different without people like you and Ben Jabo, Brod...... Am Israel Chai!
9. #2. 6 arab laureates only, including Obama then 7!
mary of Bethany ,   singapore   (10.07.11)
Only 6 arab Laureates out of 1.4 BILLION Muslims on earth (means 20% of the world's population are muslims, simply 2 out of every 10 people are muslims in world). Najib Mahfooz (Literature), Anwar El-Sadat, Yasser Arafat, Shirin Ebadi (Peace), Ahmed Zewail (Chemistry), Abdus Salam (Physics) (oh, if you considered Barak Hussein Obama (Peace) also, then there are 7 amazing arab laureates) AND,. i simply can't named all the Jewish laureates, Ynetnews not enough space for me to put all in. savvy?
