Nobel Prize winning chemist Prof. Arieh Warshel told a news conference Thursday that when he spoke with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and offered to explain what his research was about, the prime minister expressed concern that he would not be able to understand the explanation.

Despite this, said Prof. Warshel, he succeeded in explaining the gist of his research to Netanyahu “in one minute.”

Netanyahu responded by saying that from now on, he would demand that his ministers, too, limit whatever statements they wish to make to one minute.
