    It saddened me to learn about Israeli racism towards Eithiopian Jews. I have always believed that "a Jew is a Jew," regardless of belief, sect, or outward appeance. While all people are subject to ignorance and predjudices, the Jews, of all people, should be highly sensitized to this issue, particularly so when the victims are our own people. I have always thought that as long as there are Jews there will always be Jew haters. It is clearly a perversion of our inner core as a people to engage in racism. Every Jew is precious, and it is absurd to alienate and discriminate Jews who were brought to Israel at considering expense and diplomatic wrangingly. If you hold these view, please look deeply into your heart and brain and change directions.
