How does Israel still maintain a economy when surrounded on all sides?
Israel's GDP is 201,761 USD according to a 2008 List by the International Monetary Fund. (Which is higher than New Zealand) How do they have such an economy when it is at war on all fronts?

They also have made medical advancements-robots tiny enough to be swallowed by a person so that doctors can study them from the inside out and can be passed... More

It is not at war. And it also has a lot to do with the fact that we give them billions in AID every year for the last dozens of decades. What do we get in return? They SPY on us and they genocide ARABS.

War is generally very good for an economy, not that they are at war.

Funny that. It's ALMOST AS IF Israel was the unofficial 51st state of a mysterious, un-named country which has a vested interest in having a millitary presence in the Middle East, and provides Israel with aircraft, weapons and even nukes, whilst also keeping the UN off their backs whenever they massacre Palestinian...

Because America is its b***h and we'll support them no matter what. As far as war on all fronts, you don't know $hit. The Zionist entity has quiet borders with Jordan and Egypt. Lebanon is not going to do anything because its military is f'n weak, even by Arab standards.

Surrounded on all sides!! All countries are surrounded on all sides. 1- On south: Egypt is shamefully their friend. 2- On east: Ordon is shamefully their friend. 3- On west: Mediterrian sea, connects them to Europe, Africa, as well as high seas. 4- On North: It's only Lebanon which is not their friend.
