So what will Apple do when the Palestinians blow up the factory? Send in the Apple Police?

Nope, not just you. At least he isn't as bad as the Russian president, who openly advertises Apple gadgets on G8 (or WTF is it nowadays) meetings and so on :lol:

Why is it sad? Apple is a big and influential company and why wouldn't Israel's prime minister want to advertise that Apple decided to invest in his country?

Plus, it was just polite and good manners to welcome Apple into your country.

They will patent the damages so that anyone who gets attacked by
angry Palestinians has to pay royalty.

I am surprised it took Apple that long to tap into Israel's resources.
It took Intel a while to do it too, but once they did, it opened the door for the Core series that ultimately lead to Core 2 and the i series that are so successful now...

Huge acquisition for Apple. Anobit has developed a lot of cutting edge technology to improve flash memory.

This story probably won't get many comments since it's not hate fodder (like an Apple lawsuit), but this is far bigger news than any of those disputes.

__-_-_-__Does the PM advertises other companies too?

Their were press releases when Intel began working in Israel.. But that was a long time ago.. Way before Twitter..

I respect Israel for building up a strong industry and country from nothing.
