Why Israel is the World’s Best Nation

A beautiful article about Israel, written by an incredible Italian with a real backbone in journalism!
The writer, Giulio  Meotti  is an Italian journalist with Il Foglio.
I don’t know another nation on earth without recognized borders.
I don’t know another nation on earth whose population lives under a perpetual emotional strain. 
I don’t know another nation on earth threatened to be wiped off the map.
I don’t know another nation on earth so threatened by boycotts all over the world.
I don’t know another nation on earth where winners tend to lose wars.         
I don’t know another nation on earth which provides its own enemy with water, electricity, food, weapons, and medical treatment.
I don’t know another nation on earth where guests on official visits utter disrespectful and offensive words.
But I also  don’t know another nation on earth which has recorded so many miracles.
Imagine a helpless, naked Jew at the gas ovens facing a Nazi official, who thinks he will get rid of the “Jewish cancer,” get rid of this unique phenomenon of 2,000 years.
Could that helpless, naked Jew imagine that in 50 years other Jews will be flying F-16s in the skies over Israel? 
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel’s  population today would be nine times  that of 1948, the year of the state’s creation?
Could that  helpless Jew imagine that Israel is much happier than all the European countries? 
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel has the highest production of scientific publications per capita in the world?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel has the highest worldwide publication of  new books? 
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the only nation which began the XXI century with a net gain in the number of trees? 
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel has with largest number of chess grandmasters per capita of any city in the world?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation whose academics produce more scientific papers per capita than anywhere else in the world?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation with the highest ratio of university degrees to the population in the world?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the country which, in proportion to its population, with the largest number of startup companies in the world? 
Could that  helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the country with the highest percentage in the world of home computers per capita? 
Could that  helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation with the largest  immigrant-absorbing model on earth?
Unfortunately, you will not find Israel’s goodness and superiority in  the media (also Israeli), because it doesn’t fit in with the stereotype of the colonialist Zionist occupier.
In the world’s consciousness, the word “Israel” must be equated with fear.   
Israel just came out of another war against terrorists whose value is less than that of animals.  Do you know of any animal species sheltering behind its own children?
But the Jewish State, despite its media, its cynical politicians, establishment, once again showed the world it is the best humanity has
to offer.       
This hope is expressed in the faces of Israel’s fallen soldiers, its wounded and injured soldiers.  In those faces there is joie-de-vivre, not sadness or hatred.
Terrorists and their Western appeasers want to destroy Israel because it is a light unto the nations, the only one in the world in which we live.
With all the accusations hurled at us, it is good to see a "righteous Gentile" who appreciates the uniqueness of Israel in the family of nations.   Show us another nation on earth which, since its founding, had to sacrifice 23,000 soldiers over the span of her first seventy years.
