    Howdy Chana; The CIA World Factbook says that Israel's GDP (real purchasing power) is $140 billion (2005 est.) and her GDP (official exchange rate) is $121 billion (2005 est). Plus, Israel has a real growth rate of 4.7% per year which is one of (if not) the highest economic growth rates of any Western country.

I just thought that you might like to update your figures. Thank you for blowing John's ship out of the water on his claim that Israel is being primarily supported by U.S. tax dollars. He made a whole bunch of other false claims like "ethnic cleansing" in 1948 whereas most Palestinian refugees voluntarily packed their bags and left at the urging of their leaders and his claim that the security barrier is being built on "somebody else's" property whereas most of it is being built on public land or compensated for
