The Germans have indeed lived up to “über alles” according the 2013 country rating poll conducted by the BBC. The goal of the survey was straightforward, it aimed to measure public attitudes of various countries around the world regarding other countries. Germany came out on top with 59% of respondents deeming it’s presence on the world as positive. The strongest voices of approval came from African countries (especially Ghana) as they enjoyed significant trade links with Germany.
The least liked countries were: Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, and Israel. But more on that later. Interesting enough, Asian countries took a nose dive in popularity, particularly India and China. Some say that is due to the political scandals (Bo Xilai)) and the deplorable treatment of women in India (various rapes and sexual assaults).
On the whole I’m satisfied by the response of the poll. Despite Jewish Hollywood’s constant vilification of Germany (like the nazi like scientist from the new Spiderman movie) the world still admires the Fatherland. I’ve confess that I too have always held a solemn reverence for German culture and the resilience of the German people. The Germans carry a genuine love for their nation within their hearts, a love that demands self sacrifice over the chest thumping chauvinistic nationalism endemic to south Asia. The German work ethic is legendary as are the quality of their exports, my favourite being the industrial metal band Rammstein. In my view, Germany represents the heart of western civilization.
Pakistan and Israel
I was immensely gratified to see that my two least favourite countries in the world were also the world’s least favourite countries. Pakistan and Israel deserve to be universally loathed as both of them are birds of a feather. Both of these countries were born out of bloody partition and ethnic cleansing. Both of them treat their minorities like garbage and both of them have shallow plastic identities. Neither Israel nor Pakistan possesses an authentic cuisine. Both of these states were carved out by a minority that usurped the land of the majority. While Pakistan’s image is understandably in the gutter, Israeli supporters in the BBC’s comments section were in shock and denial. It must have been a shock for them to realize that Jewish propaganda isn’t infallible.
