Despite the efforts of those who want to portray Israel as "mighty," the truth is the exact opposite. Israel is a tiny sliver of a land with less than 6 million Jews in an area with dozens of Arab countries with many hundred times the total land mass -- more than 1.5 billion Muslims & Arabs with vast oil wealth and the political power that comes with it. That Israel continues to exist is a miracle in itself, especially with so many Arabs (and some Jews) within it who seek to undermine it -- partially by portraying it as some mighty power suppressing Arabs -- instead of the tiny David it is facing the Arab/Muslim Goliath. In light of that, the degree of freedom and justice for all that Israel maintains is admirable -- especially compared to its neighbors.
