    A.B. Yehoshua, as a half Moroccan, should come clear about his nationalistic pank about Israel. How could a Diaspora Jew accept the concept that actually there is an Israeli nation whose aspirations and historical ETHOS, fit his . How could a man like A.B. who accept the lack of content of the Sepharads-Mizrahi component in the Israeli mosaic, as being a homogenous nation, like for instance Italy to the Italian diaspora in North or South America. The Jewish Diaspora being in both Americas and Europe are waiting for Israel to show a coherence in its internal life and separate itself from the East European heritage, that is basecally the allegiance everyday Israeli is asked to keep in hers or his Modus Vivendi. It is once more not the basic educational system of the Jewish Diaspora which is at fault, but the Israeli educational system that is stuck in the Y.L. Peretz, Ahad Haam and the concept of Shtetl that has nothing to do with majority of Israel reality and far less the majority of Jewish Diaspora. In his book about Hamasah Besssof Haelef, A.B. Yehoshua is building a mythology of the Separads Jews, and the difference between it and the Ashkenaz Culture which was intolerant, fanatic and oblivious to any other culture but theirs: He has basically done the same in his speech which should have ignore as A.B. is more concern to advance his ideology rather caring about the assembling the Jewish People around what unifies us rather the distance that leaves us with A NARROW PRESPECTIVES. iSRAEL EDUCATION IS AT FAULT, a.b. HAS NOTHING BUT CONTEMPT FOR IT.
