Ken O’Keefe – Is Israel The Only Democracy in the Middle East? Must Watch 2017

Gepubliceerd op 19 mei 2017

In their February 14th op-ed “BDS movement demonizes Israel,” Howard Libit and Ron Halber say that Israel is “the only democratic nation in the Middle East.” This is empirically false.

Freedom House ranks both Cyprus and Tunisia — other Middle Eastern countries — as “free.” This is the same ranking that it gives Israel.

Messrs. Libit and Halber have a right to their own opinion, but not their own “alternative facts.” Propagating falsehoods in service of Israel’s occupation and settlements is no way to win a debate.
