Why doesn't the writer and others here bother to look up racism in an English dictionary? Racism is prejudice based on difference in race. There is ethnic, religious and national prejudice and discrimination on both sides of Arab/Jewish conflict. It has never been racial or racist, as we are related with related languages. It is not the same at all as whites with no roots in South Africans ruling over black South Africans, much as Israel-haters love to draw this erroneous comparison. The repeated misuse of the "racism" lie here has by now grown quite pathetic. It is no wonder that this publication is not a top-ranked English publication, with such biased, twisted "re-definition" of a clearly defined word - racism.
