In the book of Genesis God made many promises to Abraham. But it is in Genesis 12:2 & 3 that God promises to bless Abraham and his people. and all the world as well. The key verses upon which this discussion is based are: "And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, and make your name great: And so you shall be a blessing, And I will bless those who bless you," (NASB).
While the chief fulfillment of the promise given to Abraham in Genesis 12:2-3 and Genesis 18:18 is in Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:7,8,9, 14, 16, 18), there are many remarkable blessings bestowed upon the nations of the world also through the achievements of the Jewish people in fulfillment of the mandate to "have dominion over the earth" given mankind by the Creator God in Genesis 1:26, 28.

The Jewish population of the world is less than 0.6 percent of the world's general population, but the Jewish people who won the Nobel prize are 22 percent of all the Nobel winners.

The Jews, although persecuted throughout history, have given the world some of the greatest minds in science and literature and they continue to contribute. Six Israeli Jews won the Nobel prize and many more contribute to science and to almost every other field.

The windows software, for example, was programmed almost entirely in Israel. The first anti-virus was developed in Israel. Israeli scientists created new ways to fight cancer and increased the efficiency of medicines.
One of the greatest achievements of 2006: the research made by Israeli scientist Shulamit Levenberg got us one step closer to creating new organs for transplant.

Israeli scientists also developed the first DNA computers, leading the way to even more efficient ways to fight diseases.

This is just a small example of the Israel achievements and if you still think we didn't really changed the world take a look at your cell phone and remember this: the first cell phone in the world was developed in Israel.
