Google is a Public US company, and is in the main financed by US Pension Plans. It has an obligation to it's stockholders to run the business in an effective, competent and appropriate manner.
Therefore the following question begs to be asked; " Does the establishing of a $50 million dollar research centre in Tel Aviv, paying extravagant salaries to Israeli workers, when such an operation could have been located in Bangladesh for example, at a fraction of the cost, fall within the remit of conducting business in an effective, competent and appropriate manner? "
In this sudden rush to Israel, Google is in good (depending on how you see the world) company. IBM, Sun Systems, Microsoft, Intel and others have all chosen Israel as a location in which to set up operations. Financially, this just does not make any sense. Furthermore, why is a country made up overwhelmingly of Russian immigrants, with an average IQ of 90 such an attractive destination for these corporate giants ?'
