In spite of the ongoing security concerns and stifling heat, Israel is a pretty good place to live, or so says "Newsweek", which this week published a special article that rated Israel the 22nd best country in the world.

In an article entitled "The Best Countries in the World", Israel was sandwiched between Spain and Italy, scoring seventh in health, 25th in quality of life, and 15th in economic dynamism. In a rating that would surprise many Israelis, Newsweek ranked Israel a respectable 27th in political environment.

The next Middle East country to make the list was Kuwait at 40, while neighboring Jordan placed 53rd. Iran and Syria also made the list, ranked 79 and 83 respectfully.

Finland topped the list as the planet's best country, while West Africa's Burkina Faso was ranked the 100th best country.
