A blessing for the whole world
Israel is really a blessing for the whole world, is like a superbright star at the sky. She is so lovely. I´m a nonjew, who loves Israel so much, know, that I stand at the light side, future side.

Israel has been a blessing
Every human being living on planet earth in the yesteryears or today have directly or indirectly benefited from the scientific contributions of the Jewish people. They have been a blessing to humanity from the beginning...

G-d keeps His Promises
This video is proof that Genesis 12:1-3 is still in effect to this very day. Have you had a chance to listen to Abraham's well that is still producing water 3000 years after it was dug in biblical Beersheva? I have... the noise you can still hear to this very day is the SPLOOSH a rock makes as it hits the bottom of the well as G-d is still providing the blessing of water in the Negev to His chosen people. Israel is a chosen country of blessed people that has been given it's land, its nation, to forever remain an ongoing and CONTINUAL source of BLESSING not only to it's people but on out to the ENTIRE WORLD from a most faithful and compassionate, promise keeping G-d who will never leave it or forsake it. Amen.

Great people! Peace on earth!

No mention of G-D
Very nice video. Just interesting, I noticed that in the whole video there is no mention of WHO helped Israel prosper, and WHO gave the Israelies all those "brains" I think it's important to give ALL the credit to G-D, Not themselves as the video does seem to make it. Just an interesting point to ponder. (Editor's note: In the book "Startup Nation," the authors do discuss the Almighty as a factor.)

The World Needs Israel
And Israel needs the world. I am so proud to be a Jew. I wish my contribution was greater! I do the best I can, I think most of us are always looking for an opportunity to improve our world. My G-d protect Israel and all of the earth.

advancing technologies under G-d
There's an argument that societies that don't have a belief in G-d are more advanced than those that do, however, Israel is the exception. Since when was there innovation in Arab lands other than drilling for oil?

to question is the key
I really liked this video and particularly appreciated the notion that to ask a question is to open doors, a truly valuable and true insight, and very true, according to this video, of Israelis.

Isreal people always keep their thought, speech and action together more than all other nations

I have relatives with Levi and Fischer surnames and I believe I have Jewish blood in me. Even if I am not, I am very proud of the miracle that is Israel and what the Jews are doing to advance it.

One of the hallmarks of the Jewish people are it's humility, we are not showoffs. Also there is a concept that only something covered from the eye will be blessed.

Could Warren Buffett be wrong?
Warren Buffett stated that if you are looking for oil and gas, Israel is not where you should look - only the asset of technology is available there. I believe Israel will be shown to have much more oil than Saudi Arabia in the near future, BASED ON RELATIVE AREA (Saudi Arabia being 100 times larger than Israel).

Well of course... how could Israel do and be anything else? Israel was begun by survivors, wasn't it? May Hashem always bless and protect Israel.

Wow! Makes one feel proud. How can we be a part of it? Love all those advances, especially in the medical field.

No mention of G-d
Thank you for the beautiful, informative video. But I believe very strongly that it held a very major flaw. There was not one word mentioned of G-d. Everything was about, "How smart we are... We question everything..." Not one word was about how it is all G-d's blessing.
