Why is it when a Sephardic Jew is critisized the specter of racism is raised?. Even though the Sephardic Jews are a majority in Israel and are to be found in all segments of society and at all levels they still feel they are being discriminated against. It's never because they are rightly critisized.....Mr.Minister instead of worrying solely about the ultra orthodox and "greater Israel' perhaps you would have been more effective had you also devoted your energies to the more secular problems of the country. Instead of making the most outrageous statements such as your spiritual leader Ovadia makes you could have been more moderate and understanding of the secular Israel, you wouldn't be so despised as you are.
