A Syrian Explains Why He Admires Israel

Despite the fact that both Israel and Syria are officially "not friends," it looks like one Syrian by the name of Farid Ghadry was brave enough to express his true opinions about Israel, which speaks highly of the Jewish state.

( Israel has, in less than 60 years, built an economy ten times that of Syria with one-fifth the population. How does one explain this fact? It is very simple: Israel is a vibrant democracy. [...]

It is said that approximately one third of all scientific Nobel Prize winners are Jewish. The ratio is mind boggling. One third comes from a universe of 15 millions Jews and the remainder two-thirds from the much larger pool of 6 billion-plus people. Arabs (mostly Egyptians) have two or three Nobel Peace and Literature Prizes (From a pool of 350 million people) but no Arab has ever won a Nobel in sciences be it chemistry, physics, or medicine. Any argument here as to why Israel is so important to the region?

Be sure to read the whole article by Farid Ghadry on Aish.

Note: This is one of a four part series by Farid, so be sure to read parts two, three and four, which are over on Farid's blog Reform Syria.
