immigrants from the former USSR, a really charming use of taxonomy that together with humans also includes the genera of monkeys, as you call this Israeli minority which constitute some fifteen percent of Israeli population; does it mean that the overwhelming rest of the Israelis understand the basics of western culture? If so, what’s the problem? The author of this article esteemed Shlomo Avineri obviously like to think, as seems you do, that the rest of Israelis are not racist, are not prone to the militarism and nationalism and rule of the firm hand toward local Arabs, not to mention an overwhelming presence of religious chauvinism, religious coercion, and strong tendencies for the establishing a full scale theocracy. At least, the latter are not a feature of the Russian immigrants who are, how paradoxically, main victims of the existing State sponsored religious coercion to the extent that those people are denied basic human rights such right to marry and establish family in Israel. Please, stop pretending that “Russians” are problem for the absence of western democracy and the presence of the occupation which dates from times when most of these hominid Soviets were not born.
