    What country "through out the Arab World...throughout China...throughout Africa...." holds more than ONE MILLION people confined in an open air prison, with inadequate food, inadequate clean water, inadequate medical care, etc., etc., etc.? This happens NOWHERE except Israel. And yet you say Israel is one of the "most humane" countries in the world? No, Akiva, it is you who lives in an upside-down world. Where many hundreds of dead civilians in Gaza are evidence of "humane" conduct of the IDF. Where tens of thousands of demolished Palestinian homes are an indication of "humane" government policy. Where the systematic expulsion of the indigenous people from their ancestral lands shows the "humane" nature of the Israeli government. These are not isolated, anomalous incidents, but have happened continuously for DECADES. You are either delusional or willfully ignorant if you truly believe Israel is such a humane and enlightened country.
