jews have contributed disproportionately to the world's sciences and culture. unfortunately, they have been less skillful in developing strategies for self preservation. the jewish state and tzahal have become a bulwark against the genocide of the jewish people.
2. Oh no! Not more Nobel prizes!

7. Oh i see now they are Israelis ?
Miri   (12.11.13)
Thats strange only a few years ago BB and his right wing henchmen were calling Israelis who have emigrated to the US "Traitors" Well its quite obvious they couldnt refund their research in Israel and had to leave in order to further their research. Maybe instead of investing in to the illegal settlers Israel neglects all other areas.
8. Enough exaggerated self-congradulations
Zvika ,   Jerusalem   (12.11.13)
These gentlemen hold Israeli citizenship and even lived in Israel. They've been living for 30+ years in the U.S. where they conducted their research and acheived their groundbreaking discoveries. It's understandable - to a point - to note their remarkable and praiseworthy accomplishments. But the media circus that has arisen around these 2 expats is rather overblown, and almost childish. At the end of the day, Israel provided them (and many others) with a basis to continue further research. But hailing their Nobel prize as an "Israeli" success story is patently absurd.
9. #7 revisionist
I don't think Netanyahu said anything about the emigrants, it was his henchman Lapid. In any case, it was originally Rabin who called emigrants "the failures of the scum" and he was never a Netanyahu henchman.
