    Israel is a 300 billion dollar economy. With more allied against it than all dictatorships combined; including North Korea, Catholic Communist Venezuela and Iran combined.

    That is a bigger miracle by far than the 6 Day and 47 “war of extermination” by 8 Arab armies and ex-SS, defensive war wins.

    That may be the biggest miracle ever. A quarter of the world is obsessed with making Israel starve to death.
