Israel, the most-hated ‘apartheid’ state by brain-damaged liberals, voted for a Filipino singing caregiver as the first season winner of “X Factor Israel”.
Rose Fostanes, who hails from Taguig City, received a standing ovation from the audience and competition judges, after singing her winning song “My Way” by Frank Sinatra.
Fostanes’ victory strongly belies the anti-Jewish propaganda by the global Left, liberals and Islamists that Israel is an apartheid state.
Israel’s demographics and current politics show that this Jewish state is the most democratic in the Middle East and one of the most multicultural countries in the world. Bear in mind that Fostanes is also a self-confessed lesbian, which proves Israel’s diversity and gender equality.
Currently there are about 20,000 Filipinos working legally in Israel, with most working as cleaners and caretakers for the country’s elderly and disabled.
It’s pretty ironic that the Philippines that embraces strong protectionism, limits foreign investment, and bans foreign professionals has been sending tens of thousands of domestic helpers and professionals abroad due to lack of investment and high unemployment rate.
The tiny Jewish state, which is currently at war with its Islamic neighbors, on the other hand, achieved economic success due to its openness to trade and liberalized economy.
According to the Heritage Foundation, Israel is the 44th freest economy in the world. The Philippines ranked 89th this year.
In terms of ease of doing business, Israel ranked 35th, while the Philippines placed 108th in the global ranking.
