There were many incidents of religious people spitting on Christian priests in the old city of Jerusalem and no one took notice until the target was a 12 year old Jewish girl! Over 50 Rabbis signed a letter forbidding the rental of houses to Arab students who attend a college in Safad, and no one raised a voice. Now every one is up in arms because the victims are Ethiopian Jews! The list of institutionalized discriminations against Israeli Arabs can fill books. So why is ever one now surprized that this discrimination is reaching Ethiopian Jews? A racist does not distinguish between an Arab, an Ethiopian, a Morrocan, or an Iraqi. The absorption minister learned racism back home and brought it here with her other belongings. She speaks that way because the whole environment is ripe with racism and Sofa feels home!
