Israel has, for quite some time, been one of the world’s most negatively viewed countries, ranking on par with North Korea. And now in 2012 the Zionist nation has dropped even further in the eyes of humankind, according to an annual BBC survey.
Evaluations of Israel’s influence in the world—already largely unfavourable in 2011 — have worsened in 2012. On average, in the 22 tracking countries surveyed both in 2011 and 2012, 50 per cent of respondents have negative views of Israel’s influence in the world, an increase of three points from 2011.
The news will come as a blow to the perpetrators of Israel’s multimillion dollar propaganda campaign. It seems they’ve failed to downplay Israel’s breaches of international law while extolling their own exceptionalism and reiterating their nation’s status as a victim.
The world, it seems, tends to frown upon the imprisonment of an entire population and the systematic starvation of said people. And now that Israel’s atrocities are coming into the light for more and more, no amount of song and dance will keep us from seeing the truth.
