This Freedom House map is color coded to show countries that are Free, Partly Free and Not Free according to a large number of criteria.

Middle East Human Rights Map

 

 

North American and European countries are almost all colored green. In the Middle East, there is only one (1) country colored green. Can you spot the only Green colored, free country in the Middle East? That's right. It is Israel!

 

What does the map mean? The tables and texts and images below and on adjoining pages explain.

 If you are a progressive, if you care about free press, representative government, gay rights, women's rights, compassion, think carefully: Which side are you on?

Iran Torture Victim ref

Libya, Iran,  Moroccan West Sahara Sudan, Syria, and Saudi Arabia have consistently been singled out as rights violators by Freedom House, by the US State Department and by groups such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. Torture of political opponents, disappearances, no elections, meaningless elections or one party elections, banned Internet sites, gender discrimination, death sentences for sex offences and religious offences and persecution of minorities are but a few of the problems in most of the countries of the Middle East.
