Five police officers were among the casualties.03:00 28.11.15 | 0 comments
When I was growing up in the United States in the 60's (I made aliya in 1980), my father told me about the tremendous abuse that was heaped upon Jackie Robinson (the first black American to play baseball in the major leagues since they were excluded in the late 1800's) when the Brooklyn Dodgers put him on the field. That was in the late 1940's. So, my question is this: are we Israelis, after all we've encountered in our history, just as bigoted as the Americans were in the 1940's? Have we learned nothing from our past?
