Why the Nation of Israel is the World’s Best Nation

Tags: History, Education, Science and Technology

Adapted from Giulio Meotti

What makes this small country, the nation of Israel, the world’s best nation?

I don’t know another nation on earth which since its founding, had to sacrifice 23,000 soldiers and victims of terror at the hands of neighbors determined to destroy Jewish life and the Jewish state as a whole.

I don’t know another nation on earth without recognized borders because of refusal by the Arabs to accept any peace agreement that recognizes Israel’s existence.

I don’t know another nation on earth whose population lives under a perpetual emotional strain from the ongoing and incessant need to live beyond the trauma and agony of terror.

I don’t know another nation on earth threatened to be wiped off the map - threats that are disregarded by the world as insignificant only because it is Israel.

I don’t know another nation on earth so threatened by boycotts that are legitimized as retaliation for the existence of the sole Jewish democratic country in the world.

I don’t know another nation on earth where the winners tend to lose wars because of lies and propaganda.

I don’t know another nation on earth which provides its own enemy with water, electricity, food, weapons, and medical treatment and yet is continuously accused of not doing enough.

I don’t know another nation on earth where guests on official visits to their land utter disrespectful and offensive words yet continue to be accepted with open arms in the hopes they will open their hearts and minds about the values of the Jewish State.

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

Why the Nation of Israel is the World’s Best Nation

Imagine a helpless, naked Jew at the gas chamber door, 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-16s in the skies over Auschwitz as a testament to Israel living and breathing long after the Nazi reign of terror has ended?

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’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 production of scientific publications per capita in the world?

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?

Could that helpless Jew imagine that we would once again be facing a rise of Jew hatred in nearly every corner of the world, justified by their resentment of the existence of a Jewish state?

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.

Israel continually faces existential war against terrorists who take shelter behind their own children.

But the Jewish State, not perfect by any means, and subject to the same ills of human society as every other country in the world, and despite its media, its cynical politicians, its often dysfunctional methods of establishment, show the world it is the best humanity has to offer.

Terrorists and their Western appeasers want to destroy Israel because it is a light unto the nations. And the only one in the world in which we live.
