    How many decades did it take the likes of the US & Europe to educate people on AIDS and end SOME not all of the stigma. The fact attitudes haven't changed in Israel at the same speed is not a crime its just not politically correct. Attitudes on most issues ( not just medical ) vary from country - country and society - society, in the US alone different states have different attitudes towards various issues so if they can vary so much in a single country isn't it natural that attitudes might be a little different in Israel than it is in the US & Europe? As for the drugs, Israel has a much smaller budget than the likes of the US and can't afford all the newest and very expensive anti virals they can in the US. It has plenty to offer but not as much, comes down to money at the end of the day.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
