As usual, the Huffington Post refuses to publish pictures of Israelis when Palestinians are killing them but are happy to publish pictures of a dirty homeless man. Isn't that typical. Anyway, the headline is super spun thanks in part to Ha'aretz, who did half of the Huffington Post's job for them. The truth is that Israel has the highest relative poverty rate among the OECD. If this seems like a distinction without a difference, the OECD does not include everyone, and the measurement is also by what Israel considers to be the poverty rate is quite different from the international one. Internationally Israel is not anywhere near the highest.
But leave it to the Huffington Post to go for the sensationalist headline first.
