Compare me to Canada or Sweden! he demands. What a great comparison. Let's see. Both countries, just like Israel, are tiny countries surrounded by the most barbaric, backward, violent countries who tried to destroy it for more than 63 years. Both countries have a very big minority of citizens who identify with the countries which want to destroy them. In both countries this big majority is willing to do absolutely nothing in order to defend them - again, because he ientifies with their enemies. What this honest Arab forgets, as usual, to mention is that despite the seemingly impossible reality that Israel faces with its ever growing Palestinian minority (an issue of higher birth rate), this majority lives in more security, prosperity, human rights, democracy than in any of the countries around Israel that this minority identifies with. This, unlike what we hear from the distinguished mayor, IS the truth.
