I must say I’ve had a good laugh recently. All we see every day is Palestinians and BDS people trying to boycott everything on earth just because they don’t agree with it. Recently they’ve tried to boycott McDonalds and I must say of all these things they’ve ever tried to boycott, this is the funniest.
Some statistics for you: This family food restaurant has more customers than the population of Great Britain, they operate in over 119 countries, 75 hamburgers are sold every second it generates 24 billion dollars in revenue. So really, a small little city really is not going to make any difference.
To make things even better founder of the BDS has a degree at the University of Tel Aviv. Irony much? No matter how you go about life, whatever you do, there is no possibility that anyone could ever boycott Israel. The existence of the modern world depends on Israel as all the technology and medicine comes straight from our beautiful land Israel. When Jabotinsky spoke about sharing in the wealth of the land I don’t think he could have ever imagined Israel as it is today.
Let’s look at Israel’s statistics:
• Israel has the highest ratio of university degrees to the population in the world
• Israel is at number one when it comes to scientists and technicians in the work force
• Israel has the highest number of High Tech companies in the world
• Israel has produced 10 Nobel Prize winners
• The cell phone was developed in Israel
• Drip Irrigation was developed In Israel
• USB flash drive was developed in Israel
That’s not even touching in Medical contributions. How on earth can the land that gives the world light be hated so much? We will never know. Will there ever be peace? We will never know. I went to see World War Z and they most Ironic part of the movie was the second Muslims and Jews became friends the land of Israel fell.
I do believe there will be peace one day but his day will only come as Golda Meir said “There will only be peace when Arabs love their children more than they hate us.” This is a sad fact especially amongst the extremist terrorist population. I always tell people and that we should not refer to all Arabs as terrorists as not all of them are bad. Last week I met a Muslim land who gave me a very simple story.
When he applied for a new job his boss was Jewish. His boss said to him “how do you feel about Jews” his answer was simple. “Give me a needle, if I prick my finger and I prick your finger the colour is the same, if it’s not, then we have a problem.” I was so overwhelmed by this statement as in times like this it’s so difficult to find the light at the end of tunnel. We always think the worst before its even happened. But people like this man are a true inspiration to us all.
