While Israel may be lacking in natural resources, Israeli innovators keep thinking of new ways to help Israelis survive, such as water, agricultural, and medical technologies. Former president Shimon Peres believes in the power of Israeli innovation and recently opened the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation.

And Peres’ center has some big supporters: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin attended the center’s grand opening in support of Israel, the start-up nation.

Netanyahu said that Israel’s scientific and technological edge, plus its record for dealing with terrorism, is bringing the world to Israel’s door.

The scourge of terrorism brought about by radical Islam has heightened the security concerns of many countries, which are eager to share in Israel’s breakthroughs in security technologies. This includes Arab countries, said Netanyahu, adding, “This may bring us the peace we seek.”

The other reason that other countries are eager to cooperate with Israel is because of Israel’s innovative advances in agriculture, water technologies and management, and medicine. In this context, Netanyahu referenced Africa.
