Contact and cooperation between scientists from different countries in the field of educational research and practice, can benefit both sides. But in fact, such a relationship is often based on unequal terms; the prestigious Western scholar meeting his colleague from an underdeveloped country in the function of expert and advisor, or as the initiator of an intercultural research project. The case of Israel, although not a clear-cut example of a scientifically underdeveloped country, is used to illustrate the various processes by which local educational research becomes oriented to foreign (mostly American) problems and issues, instead of focusing upon Israeli society — its problems and needs. This situation is described in detail. The main conclusion is that such a situation is causing considerable damage — to Israeli educational research and educational system, as well as to the quality of intercultural comparative research in general.
