Israeli Technological Innovation Amidst Terrorist Rockets

While Israel must stop Hamas terrorist rocket and mortar attacks on civilians, Hamas openly hopes that Israeli response results in inadvertent collateral damage. Their longstanding purpose to destroy Israel prevents the terrorists from ever supporting peace.
Less obvious and rarely reported, is Israeli technological innovation's improvement of the global human condition, despite daily terrorist attacks. In addition to leading Cleantech, like water desalinization, treatment and irrigation technologies, Israelis have invented many high tech products, like AOL Instant Messenger, voice mail, USB flash drives and the first ingestible camera pill.
In stark contrast, Hamas' technological innovation consists of strapping explosives to children on homicide missions against civilians and using human shielding at terrorist military installations.
Measured self defense against daily terrorist rocket attacks is critical for any free society to protect its citizens and survive. This benefits Israeli Arab citizens, who vote and elect legislators to the nation's Kinneset.
While Hamas prevents peace, Israel remains a democratic, peaceful and productive, yet tiny nation. What nation but Israel, smaller than the state of New Jersey, warns its enemies by cell phone and leaflets to evacuate before hitting military targets? Israel deserves global recognition for its technological contributions during its humane defense against irrational terrorists.
