Why Israel is the World’s Best Nation

Why Israel is the World’s Best Nation

The Jewish State keeps showing the world the best humanity has to offer.

by

I don’t know another nation on earth which, since its founding less than 70 years ago, had to sacrifice 23,000 soldiers.

I don’t know another nation on earth without recognized borders.

I don’t another nation on earth whose population lives under a perpetual emotional strain.

I don’t another nation on earth threatened to be wiped off the map.

I don’t know another nation on earth so threatened by boycotts all over the world.

I don’t know another nation on earth where winners tend to lose wars.

I don’t know another nation on earth which provides its own enemy with water, electricity, food, weapons, and medical treatment.

I don’t know another nation on earth where guests on official visits utter disrespectful and offensive words.

But I also don’t know another nation on earth which has recorded so many miracles.

Imagine a helpless, naked Jew at the gas ovens facing a Nazi official, who thinks he will get rid of the Jewish cancer, get rid of this unique phenomenon of 2,000 years.

Could that helpless, naked Jew imagine that in 50 years other Jews will be flying F-16’s in the skies over Israel?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel’s population today would be nine times that of 1948, the year of the state’s creation?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is much happier than all the European countries?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel has the highest worldwide publication of new books?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the only nation which began the 21st century with a net gain in the number of trees?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel has with largest number of chess grandmasters per capita of any city in the world?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation whose academics produce more scientific papers per capita than anywhere else in the world?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation with the highest ratio of university degrees to the population in the world?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the country which, in proportion to its population, with the largest number of startup companies in the world?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the country with the highest percentage in the world of home computers per capita?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation with the largest immigrant-absorbing model on earth?

Unfortunately, you will not find Israel’s goodness and superiority in the media, because it doesn’t fit in with the stereotype of the “colonialist Zionist occupier.”

In the world’s consciousness, the word “Israel” must be equated with fear.

But the Jewish State, despite its media, its cynical politicians, establishment, keeps showing the world the best humanity has to offer.

Terrorists and their Western appeasers want to destroy Israel because it is a light unto the nations. 

The only one in the world in which we live.

Make Aliyah

Well said!
Maybe more of you should consider making aliyah. It's a great place to live and a fantastic place to raise your children. No more excuses! There are plenty of anglo neighborhoods where your kids (and yourself) will feel very much at home.

Couldn't Have Said It Better!

Well said!

Hopefully, these wars will end soon, the terrorists will be crushed, and there can be peace between Arab and Jew.

How can we raise the consciousness of the general public?

This was a very well written article. I just wish more people had a better understanding of the concepts you illustrated. (I am referring to non Jews and Jews alike.)
