Israel Could Groom Middle Eastern Tigers

Japan played a vital role in spreading economic development to Asia. Economic development spread from Japan to the so-called Asian Tigers (South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore) and later to the rest of Asia. The Israeli economy is so dynamic that we could see a comparable although not identical pattern of dynamically spreading economic development in the MENA region. Furthermore, many Israeli Jews have family origins in other MENA countries and those are important soft power assets for those other nations to capitalize on in bringing Israeli business and later European business as well. There is thus tremendous economic potential in normalization for MENA nations and especially for a country like Tunisia.
