Yesterday Israellycool had a dedicated team at a conference to talk about BDS. Frankly I didn’t think a big public conference was a useful response, but I got some swag, met up with a whole gaggle of Facebook/Twitter friends, all of whom turned out to be really nice people, and of course we got to hear Roseanne Barr excoriate the facist BDS movement.
But this is where we fight BDS for real:
Sources inform “Globes” that a few weeks ago billionaire Elon Musk, owner of electric car maker Tesla and promoter of various energy and space ventures, secretly visited Israel. Musk flew to Israel in a private plane to visit Mobileye (NYSE: MBLY), which is developing key components for Tesla’s automatic driving system Autopilot, which the company intends to launch commercially within the next few years.
Automotive industry sources say the aim of the visit was to view a demonstration of several breakthrough developments by Mobileye in this field installed on a trial Tesla Model S vehicle. Two vehicles of this type have been in Israel for some time and are being used in the development of the automated system.
Read it all here.
The founder of Tesla, the world’s most innovative car company, has quietly made a pilgrimage to Israel to worship at the altar of Israeli high tech prowess. Also note that there are two Model S Tesla cars in Israel being tested. I can only hope that at some point someone will see them here and that I’ll be rich enough to afford one! Perhaps I’ll start a Patreon campaign to pay for it?
And already the MobileEye technology is being built into an increasing number of cars such that soon it will be impossible to buy a modern car that doesn’t have Israeli inside. That BDS crowd better do a lot more dancing ‘cos they’re going to need to be fit when they have to walk everywhere.
This is MobileEye driving along the 443 Highway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
