    Now this racist way of inclusion/exclusion is made into law in Israel. Of course it is "different" when Jews do the excluding! When Jews are at the receiving end the other side is anti-Semitic, when Jews do it, cultural values are preserved! I well remember my family's outrage when my father was not promoted on the grounds that a "Portuguese Jew" could not possibly represent The Netherlands. Thankfully The Netherlands has improved in political correctness since then (though Dutch Muslims face the PVV bigotry these days). Israel had better learn to be more pc . Racism is bad PR.
