Shame Britain hasn't got Farage.

Manchester United had Ferguson. His players didn't like getting him angry. He used to throw hairdryers at them in the dressing room, and injuring them, if they played badly. No wonder they've won so many trophies.

Here's hoping he can't get a coalition together and that he's held accountable for the charges against him.


Congrats to Israel on becoming one of the worst places in the ME, and that's saying a lot.

It's actually the best country to live in in the Middle East.

You are allowed to be gay in Israel and to call your ex's wife a horse.

Best country?

With the extreme right wing Israeli's, you're not allowed to be gay. Actually there's a LOT of damn similar things you can't do in right wing Judaism, a lot like extreme Islam and Christianity. For a lot of the same reasons (fancy that, considering it's all OT based BS).

Getting to call people names isn't a sign of a good country, either.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in Israel are the most tolerant in the Middle East, and among the most tolerant in Asia.[1] Although same-sex sexual activity was legalized in 1988, the former law against sodomy had not been enforced since a court decision in 1963.[2] Israel became the first country in Asia to recognize unregistered cohabitation between same-sex couples, making it the first country in Asia to recognize any same-sex union. Although same-sex marriages are not performed in the country, Israel recognizes same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. Discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation was prohibited in 1992. Same-sex couples are allowed to jointly adopt after a court decision in 2008, while previously allowing stepchild adoptions and limited co-guardianship rights for non-biological parents. LGBT people are also allowed to serve openly in the military.

Tel Aviv has frequently been referred to by publishers as one of the most gay-friendly cities in the world,[3] famous for its annual Pride Parade and gay beach,[4] earning it the nickname "the gay capital of the Middle East" by Out magazine.[5] According to LGBT travelers, it was ranked as the best gay city in 2011,[6] despite reports of some LGBT violence during the 2000s,[7] which were criticized by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres. A monument dedicated to the gay victims of the Holocaust was erected in Tel Aviv in 2014.[8] Opinion polls have found that a majority of Israelis support the legalization of same-sex marriage,[9] as well as adoption and surrogacy rights for same-sex couples.

The Saudis would just love to nuke Tel Aviv and cleanse it, no doubt. They may just get the chance soon thanks to John Bolton and Co.

Religious fanatics aren't good for anything, period.



BTW - you again missed my point. RIGHT WING/Ultra Orthodox beliefs on gay culture fit more with the right wing/extremist religious views than with the rest of the world. Israel is not the best country when it still has conversion therapy as a 'solution' for it's gay people. When it has people preach that being gay is wrong. It's only better because it doesn't kill people for being gay. But inflicting emotional trauma isn't any better, IMO, cause it can lead to suicide, which is death, just slower.

Death is still death. In Israel, the far right has more increased chances to make negative changes than positive ones since it's becoming popular, thanks to Bibi.

RIGHT WING Jewish beliefs are just like extreme religious views in Islam and Christianity.

In the end, Israel is just a f-ed up country like every other one. The sad thing is, it's also becoming much like the very people who nearly wiped them out.

Right wingers are weird. They revile abortion above all things, but they want 20-80% of the people in their countries dead.

Go figure. Fear makes people think strange things.

Interesting to note that running in a democratic election is trying to bring someone else down.

I would fully expect the 2020 election to have this flavor.

I'm thinking the writer meant that Israel is the "best country in the middle east" in which to live and he'd be absolutely correct. Best country "in the world" however, may not necessarily be so IMHO

Even if that's the case...


Israel isn't the 'best country in the middle east'.


There are no real good countries there.
