    This is the most racist bit of babble I've had the misfortune of reading in Ha'aretz comments! I am Mizrachi and do not fall into your stereotypical broad brush description and neither do my family who all vote either Labor, Meretz or Kadima! If you go to a Peace Now meeting YOU will be surprised to hear so many thick Russian accents because apparently you think they all love Liberman. This post is disgraceful and I can't believe it got 11 likes. If you ask me it is the Saberim that are the biggest racists and obstacles to peace in our country because they stand the most to lose from peace and an egalitarian society! It is the Saberim who own most of the property, the Saberim who never built a mass-transit system or developed the periphery (and treated all new comers; Ashknasi or Sephardi with contempt) and it is the Saberim who still run the country. Not even the descendent's of Ashknasi Holocaust survivors have made it into the PM's office or into the highest ranks of the military or civil service. So don't go blaming the rest of Israeli society for the ethno-national control of the Saberim! If the country becomes fascist I assure you it will be led a 6th generation Saber dictator!
