agreed. what a perspective to live in that military compound Israel... to be fair, ME Arab achievements are equally impressive: organizing into small factions that do their best to undermine themselves and each other is quite a feat. so if i was forced to choose one to move to, i would consider that Israel is at least functional. luckily noone's forcing me at the moment. why should a reasonable person spend their life trying all to hold on to an elusive idea?
