Imagine if these were two different strains of the same Muslim sect, people would be wailing that Islam and Muslims are racists. As of now I haven’t heard anyone say Judaism or Jews are racists. You can also bet that if these protesters against integration were Muslims.
Can you imagine ‘White-only” or ‘black-only” stuffs like this?
One question to the supporters of a ‘One State Solution’ for Israel/”Palestine”…. How do you expect Israelis and “Palestinians” to get along in one state when Israelis cannot even get along with each other?
If they want segregation between Jews of European decent and Jews of North African or Middle East descent, can you imagine where “others and “Palestinians” will wind up? With situations and behaviour like this many would say this: Apartheid and segregation may be dead and buried forever long time ago in South Africa and America respectively but alive and well in the newly established state of Israel? None of this is from G-d.
- “To suddenly put them in an open-minded place is not good for them”. — is this for real? —
- Parents of European, or Ashkenazi, descent at a girls’ school in the West Bank settlement of Emanuel don’t want their daughters to study with schoolgirls of Mideast and North African descent, known as Sephardim. — is this a bad joke? —
…The Ashkenazi parents insist they aren’t racist….? SO WHAT ARE THEY? It not a secret that they are even racist towards each other !!.
Are they building a positive ISRAEL or an ISRA-HELL? Is God a segregator? or is the One True God of and for everbody.
Well let me put it. simply….. Do they need to study; re-read their Torah and also prayers of mercy? or ….
It’s hard to know where to begin a response to this ugly and tragic situation… Haredim more harm than good?
I guess racism is a central tenet of contemporary Hareidi belief. Sad. And also frightening.
Good to know your opinion!
