Israel is a major player in Corporate Espionage

In 1999 I worked on a project for Raythoen that the DoD had influence over. In order to work on the contract I had to sign a paper that stated that I was aware that China, Israel, and I forget the 3rd (think it was Russia) were heavily engaged in industrial espionage and I had to swear that I would immediately contact the DoD if I were ever asked to discuss work with any Chinese, Israeli, or Russian nationals.

Now we know that the NSA 'shares' data with the Israelis. Is it a bit odd that Israel has become the world's leader in innovation in the last 20 odd years?

Is it coincidence?
