Go for it, guys.
Yahoo! It's about time we talk about israel's contributions to peace, mankind & civilization.
Let us begin with a lasting peace between two surrounding Arab countries of Egypt & Jordan. Just curious, who have the Palestinians ever achieved a lastoing peace with?

That "peace" with Egypt and Jordan was bought by the US for a couple billion dollar a year each. The agreement with Egypt never had popular support and there is little in Jordan.
The Palestinians are not at war with anyone. That is real peace.

MJB, none of your posts mention what Israel has done for peace.
Israel contributes endlessly to oeace by virtue of their cintributions in science, medicine, space, technology, humanities, and Israelis have received many Nobel prizes for their contributions.
Meanwhile, Palestinians seem to be really good at how to kill, hate, and destroy (not so different than their Muslim brethren elsewhere) and by virtue of that contribute jackshit to jackshit.
New Israeli treatment improves blood flow. Israeli doctors performed the first operation of its kind, injecting genes which stimulated the growth of new blood vessels into a cardiac patient, said a spokesman for Rabin Medical Center in Tel Aviv. This experiment marks a major breakthrough in the field of genetics and catheterization.
Mutant Protein Holds Promise For Cell Growth Control. A unique technique for neutralizing the action of the leptin protein in humans and animals – thereby providing a means for controlling and better understanding of leptin function, including its role in unwanted cell growth -- has been developed by researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Leptin was discovered ten years ago and has attracted attention first because of its involvement in control of appetite and later by its effect on growth, puberty, digestion and immunological processes. Leptin can also have negative consequences, such as, for example, enhancing the spread of tumorous growths. Israelis invent hydrogen car that uses just a tank of water. Scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, have devised a scheme that gets round the problem of dangerous and expensive hydrogen infrastructure, and makes possible 100% green cars that emit only water from their tailpipe. By reacting water with the element boron, their system produces hydrogen that can be burnt in an internal combustion engine or fed to a fuel cell to generate electricity. The only by-product is boron oxide, which can be removed from the car, turned back into boron, and used again. What's more, they plan to do this in a solar-powered plant that is completely emission-free.
Israeli chance discovery can stop cancer in its tracks. Work carried out at The Hebrew University has produced a new drug treatment for halting the growth and spread of cancer cells.
Israeli invention gives paralyzed a chance to walk. An Israeli-developed and manufactured wireless, computer-controlled device that enables safe walking for people with a foot paralyzed due to stroke, brain injury, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration.
This is for contributions to peace.
The Brand Israel propaganda campaign does not count for peace.
