    It took Europe ca. 900 years to get its act together to get to some semblance of so-called unity with the last major war only being a blink of an eye in historical terms ca. 70 years ago. Which also brings to your point about no involvement in wars... Sweden supplied and went against British and Nazi forces. It was a 'passive' belligerent. Democracy role model topic... ehh... nothing exciting... this is farted out by other nations. "we havent occupied other peoples land in centruies" You are boasting about this? What you think you deserve a pat on the back that you were forced out of territories that were forcibly obtained by your greed and ambitions? And loosing your last colonial territories in the late 19th century does not constitute as 200 years. As for the connotation about colonialism and Israel, you are clearly ignorant. There has been a Jewish presence in the Levant and in particular the holy cities (Jerusalem, Hebron, Safed, Shechem, Tiberias). I have a lineage that goes back 600 years in Hebron - which by the way was ethnically cleansed by the Arabs of Jews in 1929 in progroms) and you have the gall to call me a foreign entity!?! "We were the first country in the world to give women voting rights, at that time Israel did not even exist!!!! " Big woof! When Israel was established everyone was given voting rights, no matter gender, religion, age. And that decision did not take several hundred years for male chauvinists to decide it was ok for a woman to vote.
