I must say that Israeli towns often appear to have reasonably nice parts & also tatty suburbs - a recent visit to Afula was no exception. However, this little ugly runt of a man (check the hair 'style'), then goes on to inviting wealthy Jews back to the city! It seems all dictators think alike, and all their grimy little countries are pariahs with no future for their people. Look no further than DPRK, Syria, Zimbabwe, Cuba, etc. etc. Interestingly, although I haven't scientifically researched the statistics, it appears the vast majority of dictatorships in the World are Muslim countries. I wonder why?
