It's not surprising to me that Israel would be a leading innovator resulting in new patents issued. Scripture tells us in Daniel 12:4 that knowledge would increase in the last days. God has blessed Israel, and has allowed her to rapidly become highly advanced in technology. Israel is a leader in agriculture technology and medical innovations. That tiny nation exports billions of dollars of goods and produce - inconceivable just a few decades ago. Israel's security intelligence and military is among the best in the world.
The story caught my attention because, over the years as a design engineer, I personally have been granted (22) US patents for product engineering and development. It's only by the grace of God that I have done that.
