Home grown products

The newspapers are full of "Yom Ha'Atzmaut projects" - such as the best Israeli songs form the past 60 years, Israeli memories, Israeli military successes, Israeli science success, Israeli economic success, memories, jokes, etc.

Yediot Acharonot, Israel's leading newspaper, printed the following on the front of their Finance section.It lauds the success of some home grown products. Cows, for example. While I don't think cows were created in Israel, maybe they are lauding the success of the milk production - the highest per cow in the world.
2 of the 6 images that are on the list of "home grown products" are Stanley Fisher (head of the Bank of Israel) and Professor Aumann (recent winner of Nobel Prize in Economics for his work in Game Theory). 2 of the 6 images (these 2) are not home grown products. They are both imports from the USA (granted Prof Aumann was imported much longer ago than Stanley Fisher, but still...)

Anybody recognize who that is in the top left corner? I don't.
