I wonder how much of that can be attributed to Netanyahu and Israeli right wing?

What would Israel look like had it not had a strong defensive wing whether left or right?

Nah, at least not in the sense of physical attractiveness. People aren't looking at Jack Black, Rebel Wilson, or even Tom Hanks and thinking, "wow, I wished I had me some of that."

Re: Religion(s) of peace
