Underappreciated, overrated.

On one hand, we have this report coming out of the BBC World Service, saying that Israel has been voted the least popular country out of a survey of 12 countries (Iran and the U.S. come closely behind).

On the other, there is this Happiness Map that shows Israel to be a pretty happy place, all things considered, if happiness is measured in colouring inside the lines.

What these two reports tell us – despite both being fairly subjective, like everything else in the world – is that Israel doesn’t need to be popular to feel good.

Rock on.
