    We have a very bad name at the moment and are counted between the most unpopular countries around. There is a large movement deligimatizing Israel at work. Why on earth do you need to write this article which in itself is important, but obviously meant for Israels citizens as a sign on the wall. You write for an international outlet with such a provocative title? Fact I came to it thru Google news. Most people have no clue about the Middle East or imagine how things work here. There maybe a lot wrong in Israel but this is a country with a much better democracy then most and even more when you consider we do not operate it that long. Compare it to the surroundings we live in. Also in Europe and the USA life is no picnic for the common people. Why to feed the anti-Israel forces? Maybe writers could find a way to point out wrong without all the drama?
