Should I hate myself for being born israeli ?

Israel is hated by everyone. So why should I be proud if everyone looks down upon me ?

You should be proud ! Israel is one of the greatest countries in the world ! Surrounded by hostile nations , they have gone through a lot ! No one messes with Israel unless they're plain dumb ! I can't think of anyone I know that hates Israel ! Hold your head up and be proud of your countries achievements ! You or I can't do anything about our Governments decisions !

Well. You can't say that necessarily...I have no reason to hate Israel.....Thus, why would I look down on you? Even if Israeli people did things to harm me or mine, where you involved? Most likely no. Were do you live currently?

Not at all. There will always be bigots out there - people who hate Israelis, blacks, whites, latinos, etc. - but they are always the minority, and should never represent the rest of the population.

They also should NEVER make you hate yourself for being who you are. The place you were born or the appearance you have does NOT define you as a person. You are the only one who defines the person you are.

No you shouldn't, because Israel is still God's chosen Also, because your heritage only makes up a small portion of who you are. But even then what an AMAZING heritage you have.. I like Israel and am planning to visit when I have the money to do so.

You should not be ashamed to be an Israeli. It's the governments that are messing things up. I'm sure you a very smart and kind person.

No ... Israel is hated because they are more successful than their neighbors (for the most part). This is because the Israelies are more free, and invested time and energy into turning their country into something successful. As opposed to the surrounding countries which were corrupt and had leaders that took all the results of their people's work for themselves.

You should be proud to belong to such a free and successful nation.

(If only more Americans would think of themselves and their country that way, as well.)

Israel is admired by many people so don't believe what is put out by the main stream media. The world would be a much poorer place today were it not for the Jews. I doubt that any other people or nation has a higher rate of great scientific minds and awards. Study your history and you will know that you should be proud, not ashamed. I am a Roman Catholic.

No, you shouldn't. You were just born there. There isn't one thing on this planet that everyone will agree on.

Don't bring yourself down on something you had no control over.

Be proud of yourself for being different and sit back and prove people wrong of their assumptions. Where you're from does not define who you are.

I would say it's a little unfair to say that all people hate israel. I don't. Plus you should always be proud of who you are. Your not just Israeli, it is not the only thing that defines who you are you know?

Thomas, You've asked four questions, all of them about people hating Israel or Israelis. If you intend to live in Florida for a while you'll do well to drop the attitude. Treat people as people and let them treat YOU as a person. Stop isolating yourself by saying things like, "People hate me," or "Everybody hates Israel".

That attitude will generate hostility, and quickly.

No! Be proud of your origins! Be proud of your religion! If you don't like something, do what you can to change it! Try to let your voice be heard. America does not hate you. Your nationality should not be something tha makes you hate yourself!

Jews are God's chosen people. Christians love you because we know that. Most Americans do not hate you, other than some misguided liberals who can't or refuse to see the truth. Israel unfortunately is surrounded by Muslims who seem bent on her destruction.
