Israel: World’s “HappiesT” Country

Envy surrounds no country on Earth like the state of Israel, and with good reason: by objective measures, Israel is the happiest nation on Earth at the 60th anniversary of its founding.
Why Israel is the world’s happiest country

It is one of the wealthiest, freest and best-educated; and it enjoys a higher life expectancy than Germany or the Netherlands.

But most remarkable is that Israelis appear to love life and hate death more than any other nation.

Israel is surrounded by neighbors willing to kill themselves in order to destroy it. “As much as you love life, we love death,” Muslim clerics teach; the same formula is found in a Palestinian textbook for second graders. Apart from the fact that the Arabs are among the least free, least educated, and (apart from the oil states) poorest peoples in the world, they also are the unhappiest, even in their wealthiest kingdoms.

It cannot be attributed to material conditions of life. Oil-rich Saudi Arabia ranks 171st on an international quality of life index, below Rwanda.

For one thing, Israelis are far more religious than American Jews. Two-thirds of Israelis believe in God, although only a quarter observe their religion strictly. Even Israelis averse to religion evince a different kind of secularism than we find in the secular West. They speak the language of the Bible and undergo 12 years of Bible studies in state elementary and secondary schools.

Faith in God’s enduring love for a people that believes it was summoned for his purposes out of a slave rabble must be part of the explanation.

If the Israelis are the happiest country on Earth, as the numbers indicate, it seems possible that they will do what is required to keep their country, despite the odds against them.

Israelis happy and loving Life?…You bet.

Despite this:

and this:

and this:

The haters taste no happiness; only bitterness from all the bullet showers.
Perceiving the “in-fidels” as fresh meat to be obliterated.
nothing but a force with which to be reckoned.
Fists of fury remain their only jury.

They know not true calmness, nor a life of self-determination.

According to Israeli Prime Minister Omelet, Israel’s survival would depend on offering the homicidal, civilian murdering Ar-abs a more “hopeful future” with their own political sovereignty, not to mention boosting their economic development….to afford them more kassam rockets.

Because as long as the filthy rich A-rab nations allow the Palis to remain stuck in Israel living in poverty and despair Israel will remain “at War”.
Nice equation eh.

Apparently enabling and assisting terrorists to achieve a viable, prosperous “State” is the goal of the ones they are attempting to demolish.

Kinna like givin CPR to someone whose got a knife stuck in your jugular.

Sorry, it doesn’t require a degree in International Politics to realize that trying to “pursue Peace” with self confessed killers is not only inane, dreadfully self defeating…but ultimately suicidal.

Izlam represents the most lethal strategic challenge to America, Europe, Israel and free Nations worldwide.

Ham-ASS, a baby killing terrorist organization of thugs won the most recent “Palestinian” national elections in a landslide.

Just a bit “telling”, wouldn’t ya say?

Think the haters can ever kill America’s or Israel’s spirit and joy in Living?
Think again.

Much to the chagrin of the rest of the world…. America and Israel are “Keepers of the Flame.”
The flame of Freedom.
The taste of Freedom that lets you fly,
that lets your very soul run free.

Content with the knowledge that we are not the tyrants nor the oppressors,
simply humble defenders.

We share the freedom to honor a loving, peaceful God in all His glory
for all Eternity.

It’s been said:
The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself. (Benjamin Franklin)
And indeed..we do.

The best vitamin to be a happy person is B1.

    God bless them every one. Compare to the Muslims who seem upset over everything, angry, hateful, and mean.

  2. Katie says:

    The B-1 vitamin is good, but the B-2 is better! Most Israelis are happy, but they won’t admit it. It’s a secret they keep to themselves.

    If the Israelis love life, and these other guys love death… if they love death as much as the Israelis love life… then does that mean that if the Israelis are alive and these other guys are all dead, there will be peace and everybody will be happy?

    These other guys have some pretty stupid propaganda. They can’t even hate Israel right – all they do is make a case for their own genocide.

    Interesting post, Angel!

  10. Daniel Ruwe says:

    I can definitely believe that Israel is one of the world’s happiest countries. They are free, and often freedom and happiness go hand in hand.

  11. Otto - American Interests says:

    And the most esteemed nation in the Middle East, a true model for democracy. I fear the future though, Israel is threatened by not one but two, rejectionist bodies on its borders, Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Hizbollah in Lebanon, and further afield by the nuclear threat that is Iran….I also frear the passing of the WWII generation, they know so much. A challenging century this shall be. My hope is that the America Israel relationship gets even stronger and closer, more than ever the two need to draw on the strengths of each..

    There are a fair number of hateful Muslims. Yasser Arafat was an idiot. Al qaeda members have a caveman mentality. Bin Laden had no authority to issue the fatwas that he did.

    With apologizes to the site author and all her eloquent commentors..i must paste here an opinon piece in todays N.Y. Newsday by Mr. Charles Krauthammer, i believe it speaks for itself…..

    Israel’s crime is its insistence on living
    Charles Krauthammer | Newsday Staff Writer

    Before sending Lewis and Clark west, Thomas Jefferson dispatched Meriwether Lewis to Philadelphia to see Dr. Benjamin Rush.

    The eminent doctor prepared a series of scientific questions for the expedition to answer. Among them, writes Stephen Ambrose: “What Affinity between their (the Indians’) religious Ceremonies & those of the Jews?” Jefferson and Lewis, like many of their day and ours, were fascinated by the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, and thought they might be out there on the Great Plains.

    They weren’t. They aren’t anywhere. Their disappearance into the mists of history since their exile from Israel in 722 B.C. is no mystery. It is the norm, the rule for every ancient people defeated, destroyed, scattered and exiled. With one exception, a miraculous story of redemption and return, after 2,000 years. Remarkably, that miracle occurred in our time. This week marks its 60th anniversary: the return and restoration of the remaining two tribes of Israel — Judah and Benjamin, later known as the Jews — to their ancient homeland.

    The establishment of the State of Israel embodied many miracles, from the creation of the first Jewish army since Roman times to the only recorded instance of the resurrection of a dead language — Hebrew, now the daily tongue of a vibrant nation of 7 million. As historian Barbara Tuchman once wrote, Israel is “the only nation in the world that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, and with the same religion and same language as it did 3,000 years ago.”

    During its early years, Israel was often spoken of in such romantic terms. Today, such talk is considered naive, anachronistic, even insensitive — nothing more than Zionist myth designed to hide the true story, i.e., the Palestinian narrative of dispossession.

    Not so. Palestinian suffering is, of course, real and heart-wrenching, but what the Arab narrative deliberately distorts is the cause of its own tragedy: the folly of its own fanatical leadership, which repeatedly chose war rather than compromise and conciliation.

    Palestinian dispossession is a direct result of the Arab rejection, then and now, of a Jewish state of any size on any part of the vast lands the Arabs claim as their exclusive patrimony. That was the cause of the war 60 years ago that, in turn, caused the refugee problem. And it remains the cause of war today.

    Six months before Israel’s birth, the United Nations had decided by a two-thirds majority that the only just solution to the British departure from Palestine would be the establishment of a Jewish state and an Arab state side by side. The undeniable fact remains: The Jews accepted that compromise; the Arabs rejected it.

    With a vengeance. On the day the British pulled down their flag, Israel was invaded by Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Transjordan and Iraq — 650,000 Jews against 40 million Arabs.

    Israel prevailed, another miracle. But at a very high cost — not just to the Palestinians, displaced as a result of the war, but also to the Israelis: 6,373 dead. One percent of the population.

    You rarely hear about Israel’s terrible suffering in that 1948-49 war. You hear only the Palestinian side. Today, in the same vein, you hear that Israeli settlements and checkpoints and occupation are the continuing root causes of terrorism and instability in the region.

    But in 1948, there were no “occupied territories.” Nor in 1967, when Egypt, Syria and Jordan joined together in a second war of annihilation against Israel.

    Look at Gaza today. No Israeli occupation, no settlements, not a single Jew left. The Palestinian response? Unremitting rocket fire, killing and maiming Israeli civilians. The declared casus belli of the Palestinian government in Gaza behind these rockets? The very existence of a Jewish state.

    Israel’s crime is not its policies but its insistence on living. On the day the Arabs — and the Palestinians in particular — make a collective decision to accept the Jewish state, there will be peace, as Israel proved with its treaties with Egypt and Jordan. Until that day, there will be nothing but war. And every “peace process,” however cynical or well-meaning, will come to nothing.
