I don't expect you to admit that Israel is a nation of institutionalized racism. One needs only to read many of the commentaries here to plainly see that. Do you deny: Israel's Basic Laws omit mention of "equality under the law"? (contrary to the US "equality under the law" for every person). Israel's Basic Laws allow the state to violate them as "befitting the values of the State of Israel", which of course has been amply applied to effect "Jewish" privilege under the law over "others". In contrast, the US constitution prohibits government violation of human rights, especially on such a nebulous basis as "values". These "legalities" are applied in Israel just as the Jim Crow laws in the Southern States in the US were applied to achieve racism, or the "Indian Removal Act of 1830" was applied to perpetrate genocide against the Native Americans. This is the core behind Israel's politics of demography.
