Since Israel’s creation, the situation of gays has improved dramatically. Back in 1948, they were socially shunned, they had to enter heterosexual marriages so that they wouldn’t be discriminated against and in many cases they ended up committing suicide, even when they had rendered valuable service to their countries, as was the case with Alan Turing.
Today, gays can openly discuss their sexual identity, marry each other and even boast of their same-sex partners in fashion magazines.
Same goes for blacks. Could anyone fathom a black President back in 1948? But in 2008 Obama was elected to the office. It took Israel 60 years to take a man of color to the US’s top executive post, but finally they managed to.
The situation of the disabled has also improved dramatically. As has that of nonsmokers, and that of women. All these minorities have benefitted from the birth of Israel.
But of course, there will always be antisemites who claim that these advances have to do with a huge social change in the Western world, whereby prejudice against Jews, blacks, gays, women, etc., is no longer acceptable, rather than with the miracle of Israel’s inception.
