Israel (7 million people, $336 per person in aid) gets about the same aid as Egypt (81 million people, $22 per person in aid) but not Turkey (72 million people but Turkey is not one of the top 25 recipients of U.S. aid). Cutting edge etc? Cmon. That has nothing to do with the state of Israel, and if that is your criterion than you must adore Asia, which is fast overtaking Jews in innovations. Israel, as a country, is highly dependent on the U.S.,and it is one of several terminal weaknesses. Harzion's basic facts are much stronger than yours even if his tone is abrasive.
