Best Countries in the Middle East

The Top Ten

1 Israel Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world but arab, african and east asian communities still can be found. more.

The only country in middle east that allows minority religions to practice without discrimination. Muslims, Christians, Druze, Jews, all have more civil rights than any other middle eastern country. Only Kurdistan comes close, while rest of countries pay lip service to their own constitutions, and persecution is ongoing.

The only true democracy in the Middle East and also the only Middle Eastern country with a growing Christian population. Half of the Israeli population doesn't have a single European ancestor thanks to the mass exodus and purging campaigns that brought the Jews in most of the Muslim Nations towards the brink of extinction.

Only Democracy in the middle east, and by far the most technologically advanced nation in the middle east as well.

They have a democracy, and though their government is very Jewish run and has Jewish theocracy as they have for thousands of years (and rightfully so as they are God's people), they respect Christians and Muslims who are willing to cooperate and be peaceful. Its free, its beautiful, it's the land of many holy sites, and it will always be a great nation.
