JNS.orgLife expectancy in Israel ranks eighth among the world’s 36 most developed countries, according to a new Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report released Tuesday. The report said the average life expectancy in Israel is 82, two years higher than the OECD average.

The report added that the Israeli economy is expected to grow this year by 3.2 percent and in 2015 by 3.5 percent.

“The [Israeli] economy will be buoyed by a gradually improving external environment, the benefit of which should be amplified by expanding gas production and persistently low interest rates,” stated the report.

    There could be a flood of Islam to Jewish converts.
