Here's a question for those who tell you that Israel is the Middle East bully. It's a very simple question.

It's easy to remember. It's visual. 

It shows you a truth you might not know. It's a truth that might prompt you to re-think all the terrible things you've heard about Israel. 

It's a truth that'll put the 'Israel problem' into perspective.

You need some perspective about Israel because of what the world says about Israel: Israel is the ugly bully that torments the Middle East. 

Here's what the world tells you:

-Israel is the regional superpower. Everyone knows that.

-Israel dominates the Middle East. Everyone knows that, too.

-Israel uses its size, power and wealth to push around poor Arabs who look tiny compared to the Jewish bully. Everyone knows that.

-In the Middle East, everyone knows Israel is the giant. Everyone 'knows' that Israel acts as if it's the only country in the Middle East.

-Everyone knows that's how bullies act. Everyone 'knows' that Israel is so big, it thinks it owns at least half the world.

-The Jewish Israel is the biggest bully of them all.  

Well, here's some perspective on this 'giant Jewish bully' business. It comes in the form of a question. Page down and take a look:

Who's the bully in the Middle East? Look at the picture. Who looks like they own half the world?

You tell me who's the bully--the big guys or the tiny, almost invisible guy?

The Middle East isn't a civil place. It's ugly--and ruthless. It's filled with hate. It's where the majority bullies and terrorizes the minority--and then tells the world that the bully-terrorist is the victim.

The picture tells you all you need to know about the Middle East.
