Night and Day

Today in Israel:

An Israeli start-up has developed a processor that uses optics instead of silicon, enabling it to compute at the speed of light, the company said.

Lenslet said its processor will enable new capabilities in homeland security and military, multimedia and communications applications.

“Optical processing is a strategic competitive advantage for nations and companies,” said Avner Halperin, vice president for business development at Lenslet.

“Processing at the speed of light, you can have safer airports, autonomous military systems, high-definition multimedia broadcast systems and advanced next-generation communications systems.” An optical processor is a digital signal processor (DSP) with an optical accelerator attached to it that enables it to perform functions at very high speeds. “It is an acceleration of 20 years in the development of digital hardware,” Lenslet founder and Chief Executive Officer Aviram Sariel told Reuters.

Today in Palestine:

An armed member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades takes part in an anti-Israel demonstration. The United States has reduced the size and cut the budget of the team it sent to the Middle East with great fanfare earlier this year to monitor the implementation of the so-called “roadmap” for Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Anyone see a pattern here?
