81 Belarus Belarus

Really? Belarus?. Belarus was Always seized by Lithuania, Poland and Russia.

82 Israel Israel Israel, officially the State of Israel is a country in the Middle East, on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea.

If by Israel, we mean the Jews, then no question top 3. Abraham (and Western monotheism) Moses, Jesus, Einstein, Freud, Marx, and countless others.

If we mean modern Israel, then still very influential, not only for its many innovations and contributions--in technology, medicine, art, etc--but also for its volatile political context. As the only democracy in the Middle East and the only Jewish state in the world surrounded by Muslim states, it is often the site of conflict and controversy both internally and on the world stage, thereby affecting other countries' actions and participating in one the defining conflicts of our time.

Should be ranked way higher. Jesus was a Jew, enough said!

How is this not number 1? Jesus, duh!

The number 1, no doubt.
The old testament was written in Hebrew.
Son of God was born in Bethlehem, Israel.
