Israel's Contribution to the World

Whether in communications, medicine, industry or agriculture, Israeli cutting-edge technology leads the way.
And, amazingly, yet again a leading News group actually covered the following story.  Under the heading, " Israel:  Eco-revolution in the desert", the Daily Express wrote a really good article about Israel’s achievements and contribution to the world. 
Speaking of the nation of Israel, the Daily Express state, "It grows food in sand, powers homes with the sun and this year launches the world's finest city-wide electric car system. So how has war-torn Israel become such an eco-pioneer?"  
The article then goes on to state that Israel will be the first country in the world with its electric car technology. The electricity for the cars will come from solar technology being developed in the desert in southern Israel.  The Daily Express write, "Amid the gunfire, this tiny country the size of Wales, and with a population of just under 7.5million leads the world in developing and exporting green technologies that could save the planet.  Ironically it is precisely because of its precarious position that such eco-inventions have flourished.  In innovation it outshines all its neighbours."   
Israeli farmers radically revolutionised the watering of agricultural crops more than 40 years ago.  Today, one can travel the length and breadth of the nation of Israel, and see the drip irrigation system in action.  This system has since been adopted worldwide. 
Netafim, which markets the technology, says it is now used in more than 110 countries and has helped create self-sustaining agricultural communities in drought-stricken areas, particularly in Africa
The article, written by Daily Express' Matthew Kalman goes on to say, "Israeli ingenuity in electricity is not limited to the sun. Innowattech is developing a system to generate electricity from the pressure of traffic driving along roads. Piezo-electric generators are installed inches beneath the upper layer of asphalt and convert the mechanical energy of traffic passing over them into electrical energy.  Before too long it will be possible to drive an electric car powered by a battery whose electricity was generated by the sun or by other cars driving across a sub-surface generator, and whose engine is cooled by recycled water.  But only in Israel." From

These people may be blinded to their Messiah, but God protects them and makes them leaders in all aspects of technology. Much of what we take for granted today has come from Israeli ingenuity. The world knows this as well, and like juveniles in junior high school, they vent their envy and jealousy and turn others against the very ones who make the world a better place in which to live...until the Lord returns!!
