      PM Promises Many More Nobel Winners


      Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised newly-named Nobel Laureate Dan Shechtman, on Thursday, that Israel will have many more Nobel Prize winners because of the investment his administration has made to education at various levels. The promise came during a reception for Professor Shechtman at the Prime Minister's Office.

      Netanyahu was responding to the Technion chemist's words that Israel needed to invest in education. Professor Shechtman illustrated the work that earned him the honor.
