Israel: the little state that could

The video that follows makes a very good case for a country like Canada to support and defend the State of Israel. This tiny democracy, surrounded by hostile states and beset by enemies without and within, has managed to transform what was basically an underdeveloped desert community into a powerhouse of innovation and a world-class cultural, scientific and industrial complex.

Israel, excluding territories captured by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War, is approximately 8,019 square miles in area, less than twice the size of the tiny island of Jamaica, and yet Israel’s accomplishments rival those of the world’s leading economies.
