45. By and large, yes
although I disagree that the US or the other post-colonial countries have really apologised to their indigenous people in a sincere way.

But they are further along than Israel. Perhaps 50 years ago or so the US still had a "cowboys and indians" view of itself, as having been established by intrepid white pioneers battling the underhanded native hordes. I think most Israelis are still very much stuck in that mentality.
