A heartfelt tribute to Israeli innovation

While Israelis in recent years have on the whole been more renowned for what they have stolen from others than for anything they have created for themselves, from time to time we are reminded that they can come up with something fresh and new. How many nations, for example, can boast the invention of a whole new class of war crime? There are nations with thousands of years of history which can make no such boast, yet one which even seventy years ago was wholly a piece of fantasy has risen from total non-existence to make this great contribution to 21st century civilisation.

Mazel Tov, ladies and gentlemen of Israel. If Israel's claim to this remarkable feat is upheld, I trust those responsible will receive appropriate and proportionate rewards.
