"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." -- Thomas Jefferson

Tel Aviv's brutal military campaign in the Gaza Strip, aside from claiming thousands of lives and wreaking havoc upon the region, has put a serious dent in the Israeli economy.

Israel’s GDP contracted 19.4 percent during the last quarter of 2023 amid the invasion of the Palestinian enclave, according to data released by the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics.

This large decline in Israel’s economy was influenced by several factors, said Dr. Nasir Iqbal, associate professor at the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics.

“The ongoing war contributed to the decline of Israel's economic activity. Secondly, the psychological impact of war also has a significant impact on decreasing consumption patterns,” he explained.

“If we look into the spending pattern and psychological well-being of the citizens of Israel, they are facing a lot of issues in terms of this psychological warfare of the economy and that led to a significant decline in economic activity,” he said.
