Move Israel to number one! They have something that most Middle Eastern countries don't have, and that is, of course, freedom! - SovietZephyr

I agree

In Israel you can be whatever you like and no one will judge you. you could be LGBTQ, Arab, Jewish or whatever. also Israel is ranked in the 10 happiest countries according to Forbes Magazine.
