    "Israel is one of the highly successful countries in the Middle East and the world. In just a few decades, the country transformed itself from an economy primarily based on agriculture, clothing and other industries to a hi-tech powerhouse with leadership positions in software engineering, computer component manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and medical technologies.

    This vibrant economy offers many excellent opportunities for investors. Widely praised as a “start-up nation”, Israel has the highest number of companies listed on the NASDAQ after Canada and the US and the highest level of venture capital as a share of GDP."

    One in four Israelis 'living in poverty': study

    Israel has one of the highest poverty rates among members of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the club of 33 rich nations which it joined in September 2010.

    In terms of income equality, Israel has one of the largest gaps between rich and poor in the OECD, ranking alongside the United States, Mexico and Chile.

    Er, Israel's per capita income is twice that of Turkey and approaching that of the UK.

    How are you Rabs doing?

    Where does the three billion in anual aid from the US come in at? Also where does the 100 million in collected taxes that Israel refuses to give the Palestinians come in at? I wonder what their economy would look like if they had to do it all on their own?

    So its one of the worst rich countries? Thats like having sex with one of the worst Playboy bunnies.

    Also, the whole rich/poor gap thing doesnt include the fact that our poor are basically, with the exception of other 1st world countries) better off than most places upper middle class.

    The military equipment Israel receives is about 1% of Israel's GDP, so, no biggie. In return, Israelis buy upwards of $15 billion in US exports while poor shits like you buy from China.

    Once you get that promotion from flipping burgers, you won't be worrying about Israel.

    Once you find gainful employment, you won't be jealous of the successful Jews. Don't be proud, cleaning toilets is still work
