I'v seen this doing the rounds on a couple of news sites so thought I'd share it here.
I have no idea who initially wrote this so I'm unable to provide a source or anything, but do have a read because it is interesting.
None of them Especially not Israel. Israel is ranked 31st in the world on GDP per capita, and considering Cost of Living. (Using the actual data provided by the World Bank.)
Which country in the Middle East receives more than one-third of all U.S. aid to the world yet is the 16th richest country in the world?
Question: Which country in the Middle East has just recently used a weapon of mass destruction, a one-ton smart bomb, dropping it in the center of a highly populated area killing civilians including children?
In July of 2002, for example, Israeli forces dropped a one-ton bomb into an apartment building; it killed not only the Hamas activist the Israelis were trying to assassinate, but also his wife and 16 other civilians, among them nine
FARS New Agency reported that Iran has developed a new optically guided 1 Ton smart bomb it has named Qader the bomb can be deployed on Iran's F-4 or F-5 jets.
In September the regime showed off the bomb to the public for the first time accompanied with numerous anti-Israel slogans in a military parade.
This new smart bomb has a range of 1,100 miles and can strike targets throughout Israel and is sufficient to put U.S. bases in the region at risk
Now there's a bit of dramatic writing. Would AI have been happy if it were shown that they were "Guilty" homes? What in the world is an "Innocent" home, or is it just an excuse to get "innocent" used?
Question: What country in the Middle East was cited by Amnesty International fordemolishing more than 4000 innocent Palestinian homes as a means of ethnic cleansing?
More than 18,000 Palestinian homes have been demolished by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) since 1967.
More than 4,000 of those homes were demolished after September 2000.
From September 2000 until 2004, over 2,500 homes were demolished in Gaza; 1,600 of those were located in Rafah, a 2.5 mile long strip of land along the border of southern Gaza.
Today, July 11, 2014, as I write this, the savage murder of 3 Israeli teens has been matched by the equally savage murder of over 100 Palestinians.
This is not about Israel; this is about the USA. The USA, my USA, is the lifeline to Israel. The necessary change to this decades old abomination lies squarely in the US Congress and President.
How do we stem the flow of blood?

Hello again Charles my friend, I believe that this dilemma, this conundrum, will one day pass. Why? Because I call myself a progressive, and progress is the path that lifts humanity above the lesser creatures of this earth. We must understand that even today, in 2014, you and I are still feral primates that live by the law of nature. Humanity has come so far, but we are still so primitive. Are we so much more advanced than a tribe of Bonobo monkeys? I hate to seem so discouraging; I guess it is just a matter of time.
