Good point about the various fascist strongmen in power around the world: modi, erdogan, bolsonaro, duterte... But umair haque 's point in excluding these countries from the axis of idiots was about the people and how much choice they have when they simply do not have the infrastructure for education, health, living income, food security etc.
Russia and the rest of Eastern Europe is included in the axis of idiots.
Israel is excluded because the European colonizers there are actually doing quite well with apartheid. Presumably it is just a matter of time before the depredations that the European colonizers in Palestine inflict on the non Europeans there will cause their hearts to rot like umair haque has happened in the Anglo world.
