This week, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu cited the “Best Countries Rankings” recently published by the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, U.S. News & World Report and BAV Consulting.
“Israel was ranked as the number eight power in the world based on three things – military power, international influence and, notice how they put it, international alliances,” Netanyahu said. “I didn’t choose to say it, they did. They ranked us for our international power because of our international alliances.” (Israel Hayom)
The top ten are United States, Russia, China, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Japan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and South Korea.
