Free press? How about the military censor? Independent judiciary? There is no process to enforce court decisions. The IDF has been in violation of multiple court decisions for years. As for the status of Israel's economy, all this is misleading because Israel counts on America for long term political, financial, and military support. Israel has never supported itself. As for national health care, the Americans don't have it. I wonder how they feel supporting Israel who does have it. In truth, Israel is a tight little theocracy hiding behind some of the trappings of democracy. People who support this theocracy will naturally not acknowledge it for what it is.
