Israel beats the Islamic world in IQ. The total number of Israeli patents is greater than that of all Muslim countries combined. In 2012, it was 1376 (Israel) to 1330 (all the Islamic world.) These numbers include international patent applications by origin via the PCT, Madrid and Hague Systems in 2012. Jewish researchers outside Israel are not included.
Israel is also skillful at raising capital:
Billie Jean King and Novak Djokovic invest in PlaySight
Sports analytics company PlaySight Interactive Ltd. has raised $3.5 million from world number two tennis player Novak Djokovic and tennis women's legend Billie Jean King. Other high profile investors in the financing round include Founder of Pershing Capital Management LLC Bill Ackman as well as Mark Ein, Dr. James Loehr, and Ray Benton.
Smart people like Djokovic are obviously unfazed with silly ideas like boycotting Israel. So is China, as this piece of recent news (July 2014) shows:
Israel, China to open $300 million research center
400 Chinese business and government officials visited Israel for a week of conferences, summits and business deals.
Tel Aviv University announced that a partnership was entered into with Beijing's Tsinghua University to invest $300 million to establish the XIN Research Center, intended to research early-stage and mature technologies in biotech, solar energy, water and environmental technologies. TAU officials say they hope the center will cement ties between the two countries and create opportunities for tech advancement in both countries.
The agreement establishing the institution is scheduled to be signed by Prof. Joseph Klafter, president of TAU, and government and academic officials from China. It is one of a number of Israel-China business events taking place this week, as hundreds of Chinese government and business officials arrived in Israel.
They are seeking Israeli technology to help China "upgrade" its society, said Shangyan Fen, head of strategic investment and development at China Everbright Ltd. and a managing director in Catalyst-CEL, a joint Israel-China investment fund that helps Israeli companies develop their technology for the Chinese market. "China has come to the point where people realize that change needs to occur if we are to continue to thrive" and is looking to Israel to help execute that change, she said.
A strategic alliance of Israel and China would beat all the Islamic world and the USA combined.
