Default Shitty Little Country

The Middle East has been growing date palms for centuries. The average tree
is about 18-20 feet tall and yields about 38 pounds of dates a year.

Israeli date trees are now yielding 400 pounds/year and are short enough to
be harvested from the ground or a short ladder.

Israel the 100th smallest country, with less than 1/1000th of the world's
population, can lay claim to the following :

The cell phone was developed in Israel by Israelis working in the Israeli
branch of Motorola, which has its largest development center in Israel .

Most of the Windows NT and XP operating systems were developed by
Microsoft-Israel.

The Pentium MMX Chip technology was designed in Israel at Intel .

Both the Pentium-4 microprocessor and the Centrino processor were entirely
designed, developed and produced in Israel .

The Pentium microprocessor in your computer was most likely made in Israel .

Voice mail technology was developed in Israel .

Both Microsoft and Cisco built their only R&D facilities outside the US in
Israel .

The technology for the AOL Instant Messenger ICQ was developed in 1996 by
four young Israelis.

Israel has the fourth largest air force in the world (after the U.S, Russia
and China ). In addition to a large variety of other aircraft, Israel 's air
force has an aerial arsenal of over 250 F-16's. This is the largest fleet of
F-16 aircraft outside of the U. S.

Israel 's $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate neighbors
combined.

Israel has the highest percentage in the world of home computers per capita.

According to industry officials, Israel designed the airline industry's most
impenetrable flight security. US officials now look (finally) to Israel for
advice on how to handle airborne security threats.

Israel has the highest ratio of university degrees to the population in the
world.

Israel produces more scientific papers per capita than any other nation by a
large margin - 109 per 10,000 people --as well as one of the highest per
capita rates of patents filed.

In proportion to its population, Israel has the largest number of startup
companies in the world. In absolute terms, Israel has the largest number of
startup companies than any other country in the world, except the U.S.
(3,500 companies mostly in hi-tech).

With more than 3,000 high-tech companies and startups, Israel has the
highest concentration of hi-tech companies in the world -- apart from the
Silicon Valley , U.S.

Israel is ranked #2 in the world for venture capital funds right behind the
U.S.

Outside the United States and Canada , Israel has the largest number of
NASDAQ listed companies.

Israel has the highest average living standards in the Middle East .

The per capita income in 2000 was over $17,500, exceeding that of the UK .

On a per capita basis, Israel has the largest number of biotech startups.

Twenty-four per cent of Israel 's workforce holds university degrees, ranking
third in the industrialized world, after the United States and Holland and
12 per cent hold advanced degrees.

Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East.

In 1984 and 1991, Israel airlifted a total of 22,000 Ethiopian Jews
(Operation Solomon) at Risk in Ethiopia, to safety in Israel.

When Golda Meir was elected Prime Minister of Israel in 1969, she became the
world's second elected female leader in modern times.

When the U. S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya was bombed in 1998, Israeli rescue
teams were on the scene within a day -- and saved three victims from the
rubble.

Israel has the third highest rate of entrepreneurship -- and the highest
rate among women and among people over 55 - in the world.

Relative to its population, Israel is the largest immigrant-absorbing nation
on earth. Immigrants come in search of democracy, religious freedom, and
economic opportunity. (Hundreds of thousands from the former Soviet Union)

Israel was the first nation in the world to adopt the Kimberly process, an
international standard that certifies diamonds as "conflict free."

Israel has the world's second highest per capita of new books.

Israel is the only country in the world that entered the 21st century with a
net gain in its number of trees, made more remarkable because this was
achieved in an area considered mainly desert.

Israel has more museums per capita than any other country.

Medicine... Israeli scientists developed the first fully computerized,
no-radiation, diagnostic instrumentation for breast cancer.

An Israeli company developed a computerized system for ensuring proper
administration of medications, thus removing human error from medical
treatment. Every year in U. S. hospitals 7,000 patients die from treatment
mistakes.

Israel's Given Imaging developed the first ingestible video camera, so small
it fits inside a pill. Used to view the small intestine from the inside,
cancer and digestive disorders

Researchers in Israel developed a new device that directly helps the heart
pump blood, an innovation with the potential to save lives among those with
heart failure. The new device is synchronized with the camera helps doctors
diagnose heart�s mechanical operations through a sophisticated system of
sensors.

Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in the
workforce, with 145 per 10,000, as opposed to 85 in the U. S., over 70 in
Japan, and less than 60 in Germany. With over 25% of its work force employed
in technical professions. Israel places first in this category as well.

A new acne treatment developed in Israel, the Clear Light device, produces a
high-intensity, ultraviolet-light-free, narrow-band blue light that causes
acne bacteria to self-destruct -- all without damaging surrounding skin or
tissue.

An Israeli company was the first to develop and install a large-scale
solar-powered and fully functional electricity generating plant, in southern
California's Mojave desert.

All the above while engaged in regular wars with an implacable enemy that
seeks its destruction, and an economy continuously under strain by having to
spend more per capita on its own protection than any other county on earth.


And the Fwench Ambassador to England calls Israel a "shitty little country".

They turned a virtual wasteland into something nice. If the arabs had their way the whole country would be a shit hole again. Look at when they pulled out of Gaza leaving behind hi tech green houses & other infastructure, what did the sand palestains do with it?

"what did the sand palestains do with it?"

I knew a fellow who rented a home to an arab family. He almost had to condem the palce after they moved out. There was like 17 people living in it, holes kicked in the walls, and urine and feces on the floor.

"Palestinian looters damaged many of the greenhouses, stripping them bare, for instance, of computers that the settlers used to monitor crops. Irrigation pumps were stolen, electricity networks paralyzed, and protective sheeting for the hothouses were torn.

Greenhouses covering one-fourth of the land were damaged during looting after the handover, according to Palestinian officials. The inherited farms had the potential to nearly double the output of the local agriculture industry"

From a article I found

Don't forget the burning down of synagogues and the booby-trapping of homes.

We gave them a nation, complete with industry [food from those greenhouses fetches a pretty penny in the middle east], homes, public services and even religious sites.

They destroyed it all in 24 hours.


They don't want a state, they want Somalia.

Greenhouses covering one-fourth of the land were damaged during looting after the handover, according to Palestinian officials. The inherited farms have the potential to nearly double the output of the local agriculture industry, the largest domestic private-sector income engine in Gaza's $1 billion economy.
