The fact is that the Mizrahim did NOT create the state, even though immigration to the area was not a problem for them. The Ashkenazim were culturally more advanced, and something in the Islamic culture which tends to be very static rubbed off on the Jewish inhabitants. As far as comparison to France, we see another flaw in the argument: 1. If the Mizrahim in France now do as well as the local French, it means their general abilities are comparable; 2. And if Jews do BETTER than typical Americans in the US, it means their general abilities are Superior to the locals; 3. Conclusion: If US and French citizens are of comparable abilities, it follows that Ashkenazic abilities are superior to the Mizrahim's. This conclusion also makes sense from an evolutionary point of view. The Ashkenazim were subject to much more persecution over the ages (by their Christian hosts), and survival of the fittest implied for them that the more intelligent survived, which today shows its effects in the US and Israel. Denial is not only a river in Egypt. P.S. The writer is a Mizrahi, or married to one, as her last name indicates, and I understand her discomfort, but reality has to be recognized. The solution is "intermarriage" between Mizrahim and Ashkenazim in Israel, which fortunately is a common happening today.

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.16:16 28.04.16 | 0 comments
