    In 2007, Israel had the 44th-highest gross domestic product and 22nd-highest gross domestic product per capita (at purchasing power parity) in the world.

    Israel has the most modern military in the Middle East and it's well-known that Israel does have nuclear capability. Israel is also the fourth largest exporter of military equipment, training, and technology, with the People's Republic of China as the primary recipient.

    Israel claims to have a representative democracy, but like in the US, there is a large segment of the population that has pushed for religious groups to have more of a say in the government. Considering that the founding of the country was based on some ancient BS claim, the idea of the country being in any way democratic while forcing the expulsion of millions of non-Jewish inhabitants is laughable to say the very least.

    All while remaining the closest ally to the US, not to mention being the largest recipient of US foreign aid in the world by a huge margin.

    It's funny how one of the primary reasons Bush Jr wanted to invade Iraq was because of their supposed unwillingness to be truthful with the IAEA concerning nuclear facilities, and one of the reasons the US is hostile to North Korea is because of their refusual to be a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, but Israel isn't a member of the IAEA, or part of the NNPT.

    Well Israel is a much smaller nation than all of those 3. And yet its military and economy are booming. Its military, while small, is probably one of the worlds most advanced and well-trained. Im sure Israel has a more powerful army than Canada. Its economy is pretty strong too. But again, its a small nation so it has limits.

    Its society is much the same as the U.S., Canada, and Britain. Its a democracy. Its government is probably more religion-based but its far from a theocracy like the Islamic nations surrounding it.
