Lebanon is so different from Israel. The latest report I read about Lebanese living in USA, they count around 3.5 millions and they send more than 11 Billion dollars to Lebanon every year (to their families). This is not the case with Israel (at least not at this scale). No doubt the strength of Israel is from within. The Israelis are a lot more productive than Lebanese, and a lot more organized and clever. But that does not mean that the Lebanese are stupid. All the clever Lebanese are living abroad because they are over qualified to the requirements of the Lebanese market. I have an intention to go and buy a Ferrari someday in Lebanon, and this Ferrari will be the one that Mr. M will see and speak about, whereas I live and work in France and have nothing to do in Lebanon (regarding business). Got a better picture now?
