    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.

    Funny, because that hasn't helped the Muslims. Ironically the MUSLIMS stole Pakistan from India in 1948. Despite a 1000 fold larger geography, that shithole Muslim country is lives in the dark ages. Same with the other country stolen from India, Bangladesh; that is a real shithole.

    Not to mention all the shit hole Arab countries stolen from the native inhabitants on the Arabian peninsula. They started as a small band of thefts, rapist, raiders and murders. Then the grand-war0lord child molester Mohammed appeared and started the Muslim Crusades (Caliphates). First the murdered all the Jews that were the inhabitants of what is now Saudi Arabia. Then then conquer Babylon, Asyria, Persia, Byzantine Empire, the lands that are now Pakistan, Jordan and Lebanon. Then then pushed north into the caucuses and West into North Africa. Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Algeria, Sudan, etc. all fell to the hand of Islam and the Islamic crusaders. Funny how all these countries had black African histories that were WIPED out in the 7th-9th centuries and were replaced with nearly 100% Arab populations. Many of these STOLEN LANDS have been BLESSED with great riches such as OIL and the Muslins have controlled them for centuries. Yet none emerge out of the dark ages and none ever move up in the rankings.

    So you claim the Jews thrive on stolen land. With is hogwash, since Israel is one of the smallest countries in the world, so what is your excuse for Muslim failing on their stolen lands?

    Maybe but that's not all there is to it, you also look at how much the state encourage self developing of residents, which influence much. Almost every Israeli youth these days is looking for Academic studies. The Arab community also helps that.

    You're always complaining about the size, even though to me it's enough land. And it is beautiful land. But size doesn't have to do with everything, Jerusalem used to be a key trade center in the Middle East.

    LOL, not like the billions we give a year for the last 20 to Egypt has done any good or the billions we give to Pakistan the last 10 years has done a thing. Both of those countries are stuck in the dark ages, their economies are shit and getting worse and their political stability has never been worse! The Palestinians are a forever welfare state relying on foreign dollars, American dollars and ISRAELI money! But don't let that stop you in your hatred rant.

    Report for Selected Countries and Subjects

    Israel's GDP is $253 BILLION and projected to be $270 BILLION in 2013 after another 4.8% growth!!!! So that $1.5 Billion in MILITARY AID helps the military, but it's small patatoes in relation to their economy.

    I mean 1.5 B of 253 B equates 0.006%!!!

    Ignorant people state that the military aid is what did it for Israel, yet they discount the fact the Israel has thrived to amazing heights with obstacles that over-whelm any donations they receive. First, since her rebirth, she has been constantly attacked by her much larger neighbors. Second, since her billigerent, bigoted and blood-thirsty neighbors continuiously attack her, threaten her and seek her destruction, she must spend a significant amount of her budget on defense (defense spending takes away from the country's other needs) and the economic boycott by all the racist Muslim countries in the world.

    Taking into account those obstacles and it's absolutely amazing what the Israelis have accomplished!

    Taking to mind that you're and antisemite, Sunni, I think its a poetic justice that you know your taxes save Jewish lives.

    That's like a wheel turning.
