4th Most Dangerous Place in the World.

Did you know that Israel ranks as the world's forth most dangerous country? According to the Global Peace Index the only places (out of 144 countries world wide) more dangerous are Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq. In case you were wondering the article states "the Index is constructed from 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators of external and internal measures of peace including levels of democracy and transparency, education and material wellbeing". And there I thought we were only above average dangerous. It turns out we excel at danger (97% percentile).

Can't believe that SA did not make the top 5 list!!Who would believe that Jews would stay in the most dangerous country - they move out of the neighborhood as soon as it gets bad!
