Jakarta: 10,000 Indonesian Muslims rally against Israel

How is it that Israel incurs such widespread and vehement hatred? It's one of the tiniest of countries, only one-sixth of one percent of the lands called Arab. How is it she is held responsible for the political dissatisfaction of 22 Arab countries, with 640 times her size and 60 times her population?

Five million Jews, and the Muslim world just can't stand it.

Thank you to Masada2000 for the above map, showing Israel in red, and the surrounding Muslim world in green. Visit that site for more geographic facts about Israel . . . like how Big Bad Israel would fit into the United States 768 times, into Florida seven times.
