    Thank you to Gideon Levy for highlighting probably the most pernicious of ideological and institutional ironies inherent in the notion of Israel as a 'Jewish' state. It is equally ironic that, whilst racism only really became an offensive idea and practise AFTER World War II, and only because of the atrocities of the Holocause, it is only in the country of the descendents of the Holocaust's survivors that racism has become so much a part of the institutional and ideological paradigm.
