    Wouldn’t the relationship between Egypt and Israel be complicated?

    Do everybody really hate ISIS.

    The current regime in control of the executive branch of the United States is certainly not a friend of Israel. Maybe an “it’s complicated” yellow marker, but even for some, the actions of the US State Department are certainly not friendly towards Israel. Some might even say they are against Jewish people in general, possibly even against Christians.

    The countries and organizations over there have friends? Who knew?

    Barry, that’s a pretty sad depiction of moral equivalence.

    Israel respects both genders, all religions, all colors, the LGBT community, and is an active participant in medical and technology innovation around the world.

    For the most part, the Islamic countries that surround Israel allow no Jews, have driven Christians almost completely out, wage war continuously with each other, despise (and torture) the gay community, and otherwise have played virtually no role in Western civilization.

    The real color chart should be: green indicates where you might consider living and red – where you would not.

    That would be far more telling.

    Interesting that Jordan, in the very center of it all, isn’t included in the chart.
