Its incredible that such a tiny country a country that If you wanted to run Israel’s width , you could do it in under two hours and yet this tiny country is sending aid again to help a country struck down by tragedy while oil rich Arab countries yet again refuse to help ,...
EVER ASK YOURSELF, WHY IS ISRAEL SO POWERFUL?
WELL HERE'S THE ANSWER....
1. Israel knows she is surrounded by enemies who outnumber her by 50:1 and who have much more resources including oil. So the only way not to be defeated and annihilated is to maintain the tecnological gap . This is exactly what Israel is doing.
Israel spends about 5% of its GDP on R&D, the highest among OECD countries including Japan, and more than double the OECD average of 2.3%.
2. Israel concetrates the efforts on those types of military equipment and arms where she is very strong, like UAV, tanks, electonic military devices, light arms. Exporting them, Israel gets the money to buy those items where she is not at the best- world level, like military jets, artillery and some kinds of munitions.
3. Israeli soldiers get a very good training, and they are constantly in action, which gives them an ample combat experience.
4. Israel has a very flexible and modern military tactic, and also the necessary instuments to apply all the necessary components of this tactic on the battle field.
5. Israel has one of the strongest Intelligence in the world, and the constant and fierce competition between Mossad, Shabak and Aman makes the Israeli Intelligence as a whole even stronger.
Well, there are also many other reasons( it would take about 10 pages more on my blog to describe them all), but these five points are the most important.
GOD BLESS ISRAEL
