"Intel Israel's five locations, some with multiple facilities, include design and development centers, fabs, and sales and marketing support offices. Israel itself is home to 6.7 million residents. It comprises a mosaic of people with varied ethnic backgrounds, lifestyles, religions, cultures and traditions, all thousands of years in the making. In collaboration with local leadership, Intel Israel contributes to education, employment and the development of suppliers and infrastructure."


"Intel are one of the biggest supporters of Israel. Their very first development centre outside the US was opened in Haifa in 1974. Since then they have continued pouring investment in to Israel.[2] By year 2000 they employ over 4000 israelis. Exports from their Lachish-Qiryat Gat plant in israel (opened feb 99) total $ 3 million a day at peak capacity - approximately $ 1 billion a year. [1]

Al-Awda (Palestine Right to Return Coalition) have pointed out that the Intel plant at"Qiryat Gat" is built on land Israel confiscated from the Palestinian villages of Iraq al Manshiya. Iraq al Manshiya was a village of 2000 people living in 300 houses with two mosques and one school. The original Palestinian inhabitants were terrorised out of the village and then the whole village was razed to the ground to prepare the way for the new israeli settlement of Qiryat Gat. Today the remaining population from Iraq al Manshiya is still not allowed to return.[4][5][6]. Legal action against Intel for building on looted land is being considered [7]."

but only because you thought I was a caring libertarian socialist. Which I'm not. Indeed I am quite convinced that animal never existed in the first place.
