Israel – Against all Odds

Israel

It is common knowledge that if you have to maintain a community, you have to sacrifice individuality and hence innovation. So, can a community ever stick together and still maintain individuality & innovation for a long period of time? Can a community produce great leaders as well as stay together against all odds? How can two opposite things – community and innovation be kept together for a long period of time? Impossible right? Think Again.

The Land of Israel has been sacred to the Jewish people from Biblical times. There have been lot of leaders who have led Israel and the World.

Moses: Moses is the important prophet in Judaism, and is also considered an important prophet by Christianity, Islam, the Bahai faith, Rastafari, and many other faiths

Jesus: Jesus is a central figure of ChristianityIslam also considers him a prophet and a Messiah.

Spinoza: Spinoza was a Dutch philosopher of Portuguese Jewish origin.

Albert Einstein: Albert Einstein is regarded as one of the most influential scientist of all time.

Abraham: Judaism, Islam and Christianity are sometimes referred to as “Abraham religions” because of the progenitor role that Abraham plays in their holy books.

Freud: Sigmund Freud was a JewishAustrian neurologist who founded the psychoanalytic school of psychiatry.

Israel is currently surrounded by a volatile neighborhood with countries like Lebanon in the North, Syria in the northeast, Jordan in the east, and Egypt on the southwest. It is also in close proximity of Iraq and Iran.

With challenges from all sides, it is imperative for Israeli’s to innovate and are known for their discipline and expertise in technology. Some of its best upcoming technology companies are as follows:

TuneWiki: Music Player for Mobile

Fring: Free VOIP and IM on Cell

Mecanto: Music Service on the Mobile

Retalika: Mobile content for retail department stores

TelMap: Mobile Navigation

Mobixell: Social Media Gateway provides a mobile Internet experience for social network users

Communitake: Customer Service Assistant for SmartPhones

Waze: Navigation on the road

Perfecto Mobile: Low cost, virtual tool for testing applications with Web and video tools

WorldMate: Travel on Mobile, Web

Israel is an exemplary example of maintaining the perfect balance of personal and work life together from their inception to the present time. There have been examples like Munich, where they have gone far & wide to protect their community.

    ***Israel for all its glory and its volatile neighborhood, is also facing the challenge of changes involved in Globalization. As its people get more exposed to the World, different countries, traditions, business practices they must adapt too. However as their past has shown at the same time they must maintain discipline too which often comes at the cost of freedom. It faces huge pressures, both internally as well as externally. Its people and its leadership, both will be tested to the maximum. Perhaps the most stern test since the Holocaust.
