We are a grass roots organization located in both Israel and the United States. Our intention is to be pro-active on behalf of Israel. This means we will identify the topics that need examination, analysis and promotion. Our intention is to write accurately what is going on here in Israel rather than react to the anti-Israel media pieces that comprise most of today's media outlets.
A QUARTER of a century ago, The World in 1988
light-heartedly ranked 50 countries according to where would be the
best place to be born. Then, America came top (see chart on left). Now
the Economist Intelligence Unit has more earnestly calculated where
would be best to be born in 2013. Its quality-of-life index links the
results of subjective life-satisfaction surveys—how happy people say
they are—to objective determinants of the quality of life across
countries. Being rich helps more than anything else, but it is not all
that counts—things like crime and trust in public institutions matter
too. In all, the index takes 11 indicators into account. Some are fixed,
such as geography; others change only very slowly over time
(demography, social and cultural characteristics). See full article.
