Sometimes it feels like everyone hates us.

We are surrounded by hostile neighbors, most Arab countries want nothing to do with us – so much so that they won’t even allow Wonder Woman to be shown because it stars an Israeli actress. European countries aren’t fond of us either; even Sweden, which famously loves everyone, somehow finds reasons to dislike us. It seems that hardly a day goes by without some branch of the UN condemning us and passing resolutions against us.
