And the Winner of 'The Most Miserable People in Israel Are....

...The amount of self-loathing shown here is off the charts. But at Haaretz, this is pretty much par for the course. To be fair, the writers for +972 Magazine are just as filled with self-hate as those at Haaretz.

Elder of Ziyon..

A poll in 2013 showed that Israelis were the 11th happiest people in the world.

Another survey in 2014 showed that among the 10 countries with advanced economies polled, Israel ranked second in satisfaction with how things were going.

Yet another survey last August showed that 86% of Israelis were satisfied (or very satisfied) with their lives.

But not 100%.

There are some Israelis, a tiny minority, who are miserable, and they spend every waking hour telling the world how awful things are.

Arabs? Mizrahi Jews? Haredim? No, no, and no – their happiness numbers are all better than world averages.
