    I think that I know what I am talking about because as immigrant from russia I experienced same treatment as reported by ethiopians now:. this attitude stems not from racism but from provincial belief that "My village is better then the next one, and we are better persons". You will encounter it in every country and it isn't much of the problem. It easily goes away when people start sharing something common: work, army school. ASk any Israeli, ask yourself: if you see this "racist" attitude to people at your work or in the army. I have seen many times as people staring this you would readily define as racist attitude finish if not as friends so as normal company with normal non-racist relations. The real problem is that people from different origins in Israel don't have enough opportunities to mingle together and as result the feeling of exclusivity of their sub community persists
