A recent study revealed that pictures of Israel with the hashtag #NoFilter boast the third highest amount of “likes” on Instagram, the UK’s Daily Mail reported on Monday.

The study was conducted on photos that had not been enhanced by any technological means, to get a sense of which countries are  the most naturally beautiful.

The booking website Busbud analyzed the usage of the popular Instagram hashtag to determine the photos of which naturally beautiful countries are the most popular among Instagram users. According to the research, photos of the Jewish state that were not enhanced by Instagram’s many filters garnered 74.3 percent of “likes” by Instagram users.

Pictures of the Maldives not enhanced by filters were found to be the most popular on Instagram, with 230.5 percent of Instagram “likes,” followed by Lebanon with 75.2 percent.

The study also revealed that the country with the highest number of photo uploads on Instagram featuring the hashtag #NoFilter was the Bahamas. The website determined that 4.32 percent of photographs of the tropical location carried the hashtag.

According to Busbud, around 7 percent of Instagram users lie when posting the hashtag.

    Funny that no one, not one, not a single person on the planet, said that for the 800 years it was a portion Turkemenistan, Mongolia and briefly Egypt.

    In fact I could find a hundred to a thousand quotes directly contradicting that. JFK contradicted that, pictures contradicted that, malaria contradicted that, the Crusaders to a man each wrote a long paragraph at least about, who would even want to live here.

    Missionaries said over and over who would want to live here, and who would call this a ho;y land throughout the 1700s and 1800s.

    I could link 5 pics of the giant holes in the roofs of the main buildings.

      You are wrong!!
      I would want to live there, my parents would want to live there and my grandparents wanted to live there.

      I even found a letter, from my great grandfather, who wanted to live there.

      Israel is the beauty that Jews round the world, desire to return to and now they can.

      Don’t let anyone change your heart, against this precious place.
