Three thoughts you must have had.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on April 18, 2016, that Singapore is an admirer of Israel, which shares many similarities but also has many contrasts with the city-state.

At the Hebrew University where he received an honorary doctorate, he said: “You reflect the remarkable human talent and the indomitable spirit to overcome overwhelming odds, that is the signature of Israel. Whether it is irrigating the desert to make the sand green and agriculture possible, making revolutionary advances in medical technology, creating outstanding art, music and architecture.”

Both Singapore and Israel are young nations, with Israel less than 70 years old, and Singapore having just turned 50.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Israel has the Jews, Singapore has the Yews. Like you know, people of Lee Kuan Yew.”
Yee She Lie, 43-year-old political scientist

 

sian-half-uncle “It is usually difficult to show up as a guest in your host’s country and be mean and talk shit about them.”
Jiang Fei Hua, 68-year-old ex-national debater

 

happy-bird-girl “If Israel really inspired Singapore, I would be serving National Service too.”
Qu Dang Bin, 18-year-old eMart staff
