dear Anshel Pfeffer, I thought we were past the stereotyped "Jewish look" that was popularized over the centuries by anti-Semites. But here you are broadcasting and popularizing it again for all to see. Perhaps you should get out of the neighbourhood and go visit the Museum of the Diaspora (if it's still exists) or have a look at the appearance of the whole people of Israel and you will note that your opinion is exclusivist and European-centric. Perhaps you like to believe that all "Jews" have white skin, but what about those that do not? If they don't speak fluent Hebrew but have Jewish names, wouldn't that raise eyebrows according to you and Lt. Col. Eran Tuval? Well here's a fact: that is what happens in real life to many of us who don't look "Jewish" to you (or white Jewish, which is what you really mean but don't have the guts to admit).
