That is correct, Israel’s technological capabilities attracted them. Intel is utilizing Israeli researchers, and those scientists belong to country, that’s the point. Those brains are the assets of the nation, they make technological advancement possible and they can choose not to work at Intel but another competitor or a local semiconductor company.
Technologies outdate quickly in this ever-changing world, but a strong pool of skilled labors will help maintain that technological edge.
If Malaysia has enough brains to create the next generation Intel chips, why not, Intel will rush to zone many R&D centers. The last I heard, it is closing its R&D center in Malaysia: http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story.as … c=business
Perhaps you can read more on how Israel saved Intel: http://seattletimes.com/html/businesste … ael09.html , that invention they designed in Haifa successfully reversed Intel’s decline.

You invest in our country, we help boost your company’s profits. Best choice for Intel, the innovation made in its Israeli labs now account for 40% of Intel’s revenues: http://www.allvoices.com/news/11737172- … el-revenue
Haha, saying that is like saying “we are great because we have higher population”. Note that fabrication/production facilities can be replaced. Philippines or Indonesia also have a good amount of labor workforce. But the minds that help create the company’s breakthrough technologies is hard to come by.
The cellular phone technologies was designed by Motorola R&D center in Israel, which was its largest R&D facilities at that time. Motorola was the first US corporation to set up an R&D unit in Israel, in 1964. It was also the first branch of Motorola Inc. outside the USA, and the first to develop and market and support a wide range of Motorola cell-phones.
The prototype of the cellular systems was passed to Doctor Martin Cooper, Vice-President and Director of Research & Development at Motorola, who tested it and became the official inventor.

If you look into Martin Cooper’s Wikipedia page:
"In the early 1970s, John F. Mitchell (chief engineer of Motorola’s mobile communications) put Cooper in charge of Motorola’s car phone division where he led Motorola’s cellular research. Cooper envisioned mobile phones that would be used not only in a car, but also small and light enough to be portable. Thanks to years of research and development in portable products directed by Cooper and new technologies from all over the company, when the pressure was on, it took only 90 days in 1973 to create the first portable cellular 800 MHz phone prototype.
It took only 90 days? Now it’s obvious the systems was developed prior to date. In where? Well, Motorola has its largest R&D center in Haifa.
Israel isn’t a country that like to boast this thing, given its geopolitical environment, any endorsement from Israel actually worsen matters. One example is that the newly-independent Singapore under Lee Kuan Yew seek help from Israel to develop its military in 1965. This secret was kept until 2000, when Lee in his book, From Third World to First: The Singapore Story 1965-2000, revealed the Singapore-Israel connection, then only Israel acknowledged it. Singapores army is today considered the strongest and most advanced of the military forces in Southeast Asia.
I don’t have time to search for all your Israel verification needs online, but if you wish, buy this book, 'Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle (http://www.amazon.com/Start-up-Nation-I … cr_pr_pb_t), it’s recommended even by billionaire former CEO of eBay Meg Whitman, now CEO of HP.
