Arab countries are pariahs, not Israel

The anti-Israel world behaves in a straight-forward manner: it declares how awful Israel is. Then it shouts that Israel is a pariah nation.

Well, according to the blog, elderofziyon, that 'shout' is completely false. In fact, according to one measure of a country's 'acceptability', the real pariah isn't Israel, but the anti-Israel nations surrounding it.

Here's the blog post. It's from October 26, 2017:

Passport Index ranks all national passports by a "Power Rank" of the number of countries a passport holder can enter without a visa.

This is a pretty good metric to determine which countries are isolated from the world and which ones are full members.

This year Singapore ranks first, with 159 countries that a Singapore passport holder can visit freely,  followed closely by Germany with 158.

Israel is ranked 50th out of 199 countries with a score of 137, which isn't a stellar score. But considering that most Muslim majority countries would not allow people with Israeli passports to enter altogether, it is a respectable score.

How does Israel compare with other countries in the Middle East and North Africa?

Israel is not isolated at all. It is more a part of the community of nations than every single one of its Arab Muslim critics.

So for all the people who have dedicated their lives to telling the world that Israel is a pariah nation - you are once again proven to be liars.

My comment:

Some 27 years ago (in November, 1990), the jerusalempost’s Yaakov Kirschen used a drybones cartoon to illustrate Israel’s reputation as an ‘international pariah‘ (Herb Keinon, “Is Israel really a nation that dwells alone?”, jerusalempost, December 2, 2017)“Good news, bad news about the community of nations?”, one man asked the other in the cartoon.

“Yup”, the second man replied. “The good news is, the world has finally united. The bad news is, everyone has united against Israel” (ibid).

 Such isolation might have been an Israeli truth in 1990. But that's no longer true (ibid). 

The only place Israel is isolated is at the UN, whose influence has plummeted and whose performance-to-help-humanity has been weakened because of corruption--and because of sex-crime charges against UN 'peace-keeping troops' that never get addressed. But in arenas where the true ability to help humanity counts--security expertise, cyber safety, water technology, scientific and high-tech creativity--it is Israel who excels, not the UN. 

The nations of the world know this. On the international stage, nations beat a path to Israel's gate (Keinon, ibid).

Israel has changed since 1990. It's no longer  a pariah. It's a 'go-to' source for science  advancements, information resources, protection skills and medical miracles.

The real pariah nations are those whose citizens are stuck because of their government's evil ways. These citizens are isolated. They can't use their country's visas to travel freely. On the international stage, they are unwanted.

If you want to identify who these unwanted, pariah nations are, don't look at Israel. Look at the Middle East Arab nations that surround Israel.
