Israel comes out on top
To quote David Suissa, a Huffington Post contributor, “Israel’s Never Looked So Good.”
This week, the peoples of the Middle East erupted into social and political chaos.
Starting about two weeks ago, nearly one million people in Egypt protested their government, hoping the president would quit. According to the Wall Street Journal, around 150 were killed and more than 600 were wounded.
Just days ago, Jordan’s king fired his entire government and the Syrians planned a mass protest .
The Tunisians and Yemenis also protested their political leaders.
The Middle Eastern countries, besides Israel, finally got the message. Tyranny is out, and democracy is in. But the method of getting there is hostile and barbaric.
Today, the media is featuring the Mideast for its extreme immorality and turmoil. But what about most other days when those countries aren’t in the news? Even when the cameras aren’t rolling, these Arab countries’ leaders violate basic human rights on a daily basis.
These Arab countries strip gay people of their basic human right to peacefully live. Residents are stripped of religious freedom, and women are considered second-class citizens.
“While self-righteous Israel bashers have scrutinized every flaw in Israel’s democracy they kept their big mouths shut about the oppression of millions of Arabs throughout the Middle East,” Suissa wrote in his column.
Israel hosts the largest gay pride parade in the Middle East; it allows members of minority groups to serve as high-ranking members in the government, and residents from all over the world with diverse backgrounds and religions call Israel their home.
The world that for so long condemned Israel for being inhumane and unjust finally sees, out in the open, that it’s the surrounding Arab countries that have the problem with corruption and immorality.
So now like the rest of the Israel supporters, I bet you’re thinking, “Israel’s Never Looked So Good.”
