No, Sabirin, I do NOT agree. I think that, on the whole, Israelis are some of the nicest people in the world but I think that Israel's politics leave a great deal to be desired. Israel is a country which was established for them by the Western powers and continues to be supported by them (especially America). The land that is Israel was owned by various Arab nations for many hundreds of years and it was only the conflicts of the First World War and the Second World War which 'restored' that area to the Israelis. I don't have a problem with Israel as such. Wars are about territory and that, historically, is how the Israelis lost their country in the first place - and regained it later. The thing that I dislike about Israel is that, even though there are Palestinians who owned land and have a right to be in the country that is now called Israel, the Israelis call them outcasts. I also abhor the Israeli policy of 'annexing' land which is not rightfully theirs and of making any Palestinians who live there 'second class citizens'. How you (from Singapore?) can assert that Israel is the 'strongest in the world' baffles me! I think that there is no country that can be said to be (or can think itself) strongest. America may be the most wealthy ... and powerful (in terms of military strength); China has, I believe, a thriving economy and if that were withdrawn, there would be big repercussions in the West. There are many other nations which contribute - some are stronger in economics, politics and ideology and philosophy than others: many of them are not seen to be great but will rise to prominence in due course. I don't see Israel as figuring in this list at all. Politically, they are unsound; economically, they are efficient and good farmers and traders (but not as significant as other countries); ideologically, they are working from an outdated philosophy that is, let's face it, racist and restrictive.

I believe that china have the militiry might but for technology they are far behind israelies.China tech is depend on russia.Israel communication technology is far greater then any countries in the world even far ahead then china russia germany and any other countries.If the country own a huge number of military and have the strongest weapon power Without communication strengh they are useless.Jewish now is controlling our sattelite communication.U just imagine when internet is down whole whole become panic right.The israel can do that by just pressing a buton at thier end and the whole will be in panic state.
