Nevertheless, the Gross National Product of all Arab countries put together (without Oil) is less than that of Israel.

Israel has a population of five million Jews, and about a million Arabs.Within Israel the Arabs produce 350 M sheqels of tax revenue, and consume 7 billion sheqels in well-fare. Despite the fact that Israel's Arabs are by far better off economically than in any Arab country.

If it were not for Oil, Arab inflence would account for nothing. except as producers of the World's best terrorists.
As for dates, Israeli dates are by far better, to say nought of jaffa Oranges.
As for Oil, the end is near. Bush has finally figured it out.
