    Our economy survived the world crisis, we're in the world states' rich club. Our influence is thus spreading. Our technology both in the military aspect is desired by the world and in civilian sectors, notably in the medicine area and high-tech. Thus our influence is spreading not only because we're in the right and hold the morale high ground over our enemies, but because of our strong economy(which is constantly being praised by key members of the global economy) and Israeli companies are traded the most in Wall street after American ones. Not bad for a 7 million population ay? As for society, yeah, there's a rift. Between Israeli Arabs to Jews. Between secular Jews to ultra religious Jews. There are rifts in every society, especially those of different ethnic characteristics and different religious ideologies. Your attempts to isolate Israel in this global 'phenomenon' simply hold no water. So how's the future for Israel? Quite bright on this side, More so when this Israeli site with Israeli authors are allowed to write what they want with comments that seem to support the destruction of the state and the denial of the holocaust, in the name of our democracy where any voice can be heard. Thus trying to label Israel's liberal systems that they're not - also holds no water, merely your attempt to do so strengthens this point. Doomsday prophet comments and articles are so cute, but they're usually nothing more than wishful thinking.

Which foods make you fat? The answer is in your gut

Is rice more healthful than ice cream? Not necessarily. Are potatoes harmful? Not for everyone. A breakthrough study by two researchers from the Weizmann Institute shows that each of us has a different 'microbiome,' that makes us respond to foods differently. Get ready for a new medical revolution.
