Does hatred for Israel stem from jealousy?

Here is something for you to think about while you munch on your Special K.

Stephanie Gutmann raises some interesting discussion points on her blog at The Telegraph.
Why is the world so obsessed with hating Israel? Perhaps it is because despite all odds, this tiny country with a small population continues to succeed and dominate in various fields. Perhaps if the haters had to acknowledge that Israel was legitimately successful they would then have to ask themselves some hard questions about why other countries (or certain territories, ahem) cannot face the odds head on and create their own success. I doubt that would happen though - too many people have built a career and lined their pocketbooks hating Israel and Jews.
