The headline in today’s Haaretz article says it all:
Weizmann Institute scores as best research spot outside U.S.
The report – citing The Scientist magazine – doesn’t specify what institutions from Australia, Canada, France, the Netherlands and the UK also made it to the list, but the Weizmann came ahead of them all. So, I imagine, for example, that the dons of Oxford and Cambridge were less than pleased about the report. It’s a remarkable achievement of a remarkable institution in a remarkable country. No wonder the anti-zionists are keen on boycotting Israeli universities: the BDS crew fear the others cannot compete with the best!
