    Israel ranked 16th out of 187 countries in the United Nations Human Development Index for 2012, released on Thursday. The ranking was one better than the country's ranking for 2011 from the standpoint of economy, education and health. Israel scored 900 out of a possible 1,000 points, as compared to top-ranked Norway's 995.

    Israel was the highest-rated country in the Middle East. The closest Arab country was oil-rich Qatar at 36th place. The nearest immediate neighbor was Lebanon at No. 72. Only five of the 27 European Union members placed higher.

    With what Israel has stolen and mooched, Haiti would be a prosperous country.

    how is all that prosperity working out for you?

    shall we look at some other polls regarding israel?

    a number of western democracies ranks it at the top or close as the "most hated nation" in the world. the UK springs to mind.

    i know, i know...everyone is just jealous of your prosperity. lady, i'm an american. we rent you.

    That's cool, but I think a good amount of it has to do with donations from Jewish groups outside of Israel. And reparations, etc...But also their tackling of resources near or in Palestinian territory. And near Lebanese territory.

    Mostly it relates to the relative trivial amount of filth and corruption
    as compared to neighbors that function on the filth of shariah and
    a social system that is actually caste like and the sick economy of
    BAKSHEEESH the scum of the UMMAH secrete their billions in
    jewels and foreign banks

    Thats not true, the mentality of the people on the ground matters. If you don't know how to manage anything I can give you billions and your country will still be a shit hole.
