The term political correctness is used to describe language, policies or measures that area attended to avoid offense or disadvantages to members of a particular group in society. Nowadays, everything has to be spoken and written correctly so as not to offend someone.
With many different types of minorities, nowadays, religious people, gays, colored people, etc. Many people are finding it hard to be politically correct. People who hold high offices, such as the President of the US, Prime Ministers across the Globe and many politicians have to be politically correct so as not to offend constituents.
The State of Israel is a Jewish State. There are no buses on the road, many of the stores are closed on Shabbat. The Jewish Festivals are a national holiday. Going into a supermarket there is only kosher food. If you want to experience a taste of Jewish life, Israel is the place to go.
However, just like every other Government, of every other country, the Israeli Government makes mistakes. That does not mean every Jew should be held accountable. Do you hold every American accountable for the actions of the President?
Citizens from all over the world get their information about Israel from the media, whether it’s the internet, Google or Facebook. The media, often does not agree with the Israeli Government. There are even some Jews that don’t agree with their government, this is all normal. But citizens from other countries now have the wrong impression of Israel. We need to fix this!
