Israeli Journalists Discovered America

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
In Israel there is an idiom in Israel that goes "גילה את אמריקה" - he discovered America. The expression is used when someone discovers or realizes something that is obvious and known to everyone else. He discovered America.
Israeli journalists are writing articles all over the place about their lousy experiences in Qatar covering the World Cup. They talk about how they are mistreated, about how the Arabs, along with fans from other countries, hate them and treat them as lower class and are hostile to them. 
The Israeli journalists seem to have just discovered America. Did they really think we are beloved throughout the world, and throughout the Arab world, just because we have a normalization agreement with Dubai? We have peace agreements with Egypt and Jordan and they still mostly hate us in those countries, does anyone really expect us to be beloved in other countries that are officially still hostile to us? 
It makes me wonder what reality these journalists are living in.
