The Origins of Israel's Tech Miracle

Abstract:
JG: Can the hi-tech industry solve the problem of the economic disenfranchisement of Arab citizens of Israel? Did you find much integration of Arabs into this high-tech industry? If not, is there a way to bring them in?

DS: There's not a lot of it happening.

JG: Because a lot of these human capital networks are built in the army?

DS: We found a few really interesting stories of Israeli-Arab doctors and researchers who are working with Israeli. Where it's happening, it's pretty amazing. There was one amazing story in nanotechnology happening at Hebrew University that I wanted to write about, it was a great start-up between an Israeli-Arab and an Israeli-Jew, but for security reasons for the Israeli-Arab, we couldn't write about it. We talked about changing his name, but people would have been able to piece his identity together.
