Middle East and North Africa is now the least peaceful region globally, latest Global Peace Index says; Israel drops five places to 150.
While the world has become more peaceful for the first time since 2009, the Middle East and North Africa, the region known as MENA, dragged down by revolutions, civil wars and ruthless crackdowns by totalitarian regimes, has now surpassed sub-Saharan Africa as the least peaceful region on earth….
Ironically, the two most peaceful nations are Iceland and New Zealand, which appears to prove that having no neighbors is the best condition for peace.
