    .. in the world in happiness, and also is among the best in terms of life expectency (77.7 years). Too bad that Gaza doesn't even show on the NEF/HPI map - it's just shown as part of Israel. So there is no way to compare the well-being of Gazans to the well-being of Cubans. I realize I'm going out on a limb, but I think that Gaza would not be too close to the top of the happiness or longevity index. Do you disagree?

Plenty of areas in which the US has been hypocritical to the injury of others. Cuba, not so much.
