One would have to be unconscious not to see with one's eyes and hear with one's ears how free, open and democratic Israel is. I am a profoundly secular Jew. There is not one fear I have that I could not come to Israel and speak as freely, write as freely and associate with whom I want just as freely as I do in the US. Yes, some cultures are better, more advanced and technologically sophisticated than others. Israel from many countries around the world gets undeserved criticism. I will always love her and hope fervently for Israel to live in peace undisturbed and unbowed in the face of unjustified critical abuse.
