    I've never been in a country that does not have a racism problem. Its a matter of degree. Israel's problem, and this is of course not a matter of precision, is significantly greater than Finlands but much, much less than the problem in most Islamic states or even concentrated pockets of Islamic peoples in Western states That Israel's problem may not be as great as that of its enemies is no cause for ignoring the problem. Its serious. Every effort must be made to deal with it. The genesis of the problem in Israel is significantly a function of the way Jewish people have been discriminated against throughout history and certainly by the Arab countries. Thankfully, unlike Arab countries, there is no deep seated and systematic teaching of hate of Arabs or others. But Israelis nevertheless need to take their problem to heart and eliminate it. That is not an easy task, especially for an embattled country whose enemies continue to seek to eliminate her.
