    The Arab/Israeli conflict has nothing to do with racism. It is territorial/religious. The word "racism" means subscribing to the pseudo-science of the 19th and 20th century which promulgated the the erronious theory that mankind could be divided into "races" arranged from inferior to superior. Nobody endorses this theory today except for vestigial nazoids. It is only used as a blood libel against Jews, Israel, America and Europe. Tukey is never labeled "racist" for its tratment of the Kurds, Moslem Arab states for their treatment of Jews, Sri Lanka for their treatment of Tamils etc.,etc. "Racism" is a cheap, demogogic, smear and using it agaist the Jews, the greatest victims of real Racism, is particularly repugnant. Shame on you Akiva Eldar.
