Israel Ranked As 8th Most Influential Country In The World

JNN News, April 24, 2019

USA News & World Report has ranked Israel as the world’s eighth-most influential country in the magazine’s 2019 version of its annual list. The report describes Israel as “the only Jewish nation in the world, a small country on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea” that has had a large influence on global affairs. For its relatively small size, the country has played a large role in global affairs,” the article said. “The country has a strong economy, landmarks of significance to several religions and strained relationships with many of its Arab neighbors.” The rankings for “Most Influential Country” are based on “a global perceptions-based survey,” the magazine said, “and countries are ranked based on the highest scores among more than 11,000 informed elites in a compilation of five country attributes: leader, connected to the rest of the world, influential culture, politically influential and strong international alliances.” Israel came in ahead of several influential countries including Canada, Australia, and India. The United States, Russia, and China dominated the top three spots. (J.Post)
