    years, but I'll take it at face value. Some Jews may be able to track theirs to before there was even a palestine. This is an educated man. A product of Israel whether he likes it or not. I've been to Israel many times and 'Arab' doesn't even register in my mind when I meet people, let alone whether it is a Christian or Muslim Arab. I don't care who I buy my falafel from, who drives the bus or taxi, who is a scientist and who isn't. Most Israelis are like this. It's not uncommon for minorities to 'seek' racism. When you seek it, you will definitely find it. Jews also are guilty of looking for anti-semitism and inevitably they will find it. Arabs need to speed up their assimilation. Part of that will have to be to stop calling Israel 'palestine' and just get on with life. It's good that this guy is really contributing to Science, but stop harping on about being oppressed. He's done well in Israel and it has nothing to do with him being pale skinned, just intelligent and motivated. Same with that Arab singer that won. Oh racism here, racism there - but she won. She was voted for by the public.
