    With the exception of the other industrial superpowers, I'm sure this would be the biggest foreign investment for almost any country, maybe excluding banks.

    Lapid claimed. 'This is the biggest investment by a foreign company ever in Israel and is further proof that Israel is at the forefront of technology and innovation.'


    I thought Intel started out as an Israeli Company, then became multinational

    Nope: incorporated in California in 1968 by Gordon Moore (California), Robert Noyce (Iowa), Arthur Rock (New York) and Max Palevsky (Chicago).

    I knew the year and the names of the founders, but I'll readily admit I had to look up where they were born on Pikiwedia!

    There's no way you could have left it at Moore's law. The pedant in you had to point out that its simply an observation. :D

    Plenty of sand surrounding the fab to be used.

    Shame we can't get that kind of investment in the UK.

    We get bucketloads of foreign investment in the UK! We're the second highest foreign-invested country in the world, behind only the US, (and, after I looked it up, over 20x as much as Israel, who are 45th).

    The trouble is that too many people (probably thanks to certain sections of the press) see it as a negative thing...

    Depends what you class as foreign investment, are they setting up new business, new plants, new offices. Or are they buying up previously UK owned business ?
