The left and Israel

The media and Israel


The Islamic world often complains about Israel. Israel can be criticised, but it is the only free country in the entire Middle East. It is a tiny beacon of democracy, human rights, free speech, science, religious tolerance and accountable government in a vast Islamic sea of totalitarianism. Most of the Islamic world has no right to speak about it.

List of wars by death toll shows how small Israel's wars are on a global scale.
Diagram is rather flawed since it leaves out Vietnam War, Soviet-Afghan War, Congo War and others.
But the basic point is true.

From here.

Imagine Israel is: Imagine the Palestinians are: Then the Muslim world will react as follows:
Non-Muslim Non-Muslim No interest
Muslim Non-Muslim Support Israel
Muslim Muslim No interest
Non-Muslim Muslim Support Palestinians

Israel - The future

"In a region that is supposed to have been held back by colonialism, hampered by prejudice and crippled by years of exploitation, the single most successful nation is the one least favoured by nature. Israel's economic output, rate of growth, levels of employment, educational achievements, infant mortality and standard of public health care comprehensively outstrip all its neighbours.
Israel has no oil or gas. But it is the only state [in the region] where governments change as a result of democratic elections, the Press is free, the courts fair, the officials uncorrupt, contracts open and enforceable, and political opposition integral to the culture.
For all those whose narrative of the last 60 years places the West in the dock, finds capitalism and imperialism guilty of the greatest global crimes of our time, and lays the woes of the developing world at the door of the developed, the condition of Israel is a living refutation of all they stand for. For the leaders of all Israel's neighbours, Israel's success is a daily reminder of how they have failed their peoples."
- Michael Gove, Celsius 7/7.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
