  1. The Israelis are indeed a brave people, I salute them. Despite a politically correct and dishonest world making Israel its whipping boy, despite vile accusations in media everywhere against israel’s rights record, the facts remain undisputed – [1] Israel is a flourishing democracy and a million of its arab citizens have the right to vote
    [2] The richest country by per capita viz. Israel in the middle east has no oil
    [3] Israel is a tiny, arid country and despitethat they’ve fought against ridiculuos odds to win again and again (quite unlike their giant arab neighbours who’ve forever been whining about excuses like colonial excesses and cultural incompatibility for their pathetic records on human rights, democracy, education and healthcare.
    So how is it that so many people in the world harbor such a vicious hatred against jews? While at the same time apologising for all-too-unmistakable flaws in that so-called ‘religion of peace’
    Go figure.
