    Let's not repeat with him, what happened with Helen Thomas. It would be meaningless. I think he should be given a chance to apologize although what he said is stupid. It's not because you have a technic superiority that you are superior. There are still remote populations in Papua New Guinea that live like during Stone Age. Are they inferior to us? I don't think so. A lot of anthropological stuides have shown the opposite. Furthermore, they have never practiced slavery. Technic superiority is not always tantamount to moral superiority. By the way, my family suffered from discrimination when they arrived in Israel. Practicing discrimination against people just because of their origins is certainly not a sign of ''superiority''. I hope Zach will not forget it next time.
