Freedom House ranks the least (and most) free countries in the world

The Least Free, according to Freedom House?
Belarus
Burma
Chad
China
Côte d’Ivoire
Cuba
Equatorial Guinea
Eritrea
Laos
Libya
North Korea
Saudi Arabia
Somalia
Sudan
Syria
Turkmenistan
Uzbekistan
Tibet
South Ossetia
Western Sahara

Of the other middle East nations, all of them are ranked in the LOWEST category of “NOT FREE” except Lebanon which manages “Partly Free” largely because of it’s acceptance of Christianity.

As for Israel? Suprise, it achieves the highest status of “Free” with a 1 (the highest and the same as the US) for political rights.

Oh, and in case you may wonder, the board of Freedom House is comprised of a wide variety of people, and a huge number of Arabs, so bias is not a question.
