Israel finance minister: Lose control and we'll end up like Britain

Remember the time when Israel was the economic basket case and Britain was rich? Well, those times are long gone.

Now it is Israel which looks on Britain with horror. As the Israeli finance minister Yuval Steinitz warned yesterday,

"If we go wild and lose control we might end up like Britain or Spain, not to mention Greece - in another two years."

Explains a bit about the recent spike in British aliyah figures, doesn't it?
