Yes, there is the Israeli racism against Arabs, but Zionism – a project of European colonialism – is also racist toward Oriental and black Jews.
It is because Israel is based not only on Jewish supremacy against Arabs, but also European Jewry supremacy against Oriental Jews. Think about it, 50% of Israeli Jewish are Mizrahi or Sephardi; but where are they? Israel has not elected one prime minister from the latter two, Israeli governments are overwhelmingly composed of European Jews. Of course, there is always a token Mizrahi.
Read the Israeli historian Tom Segev and his book “1949: The First Israelis” about how the Oriental Jews were rounded up in camps and separated from the “white” Jews.
The founding father of Israel and its first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion himself spoke with contempt against Oriental Jews and declared that the state of Israel was not built for them.
Instead, it is the Jews of Europe whom are “the leading candidates for citizenship in the State of Israel. Hitler, more than he hurt the Jewish people, whom he knew and detested, hurt the Jewish State, whose coming he did not foresee. He destroyed the substance, the main and essential building force of the [Jewish] state. The state arose and did not find the nation which had waited for it.” [Segev, 157].
But black – of Falasha Jews – get it the worse. In recent months the Israeli press has been filled with stories about how they are segregated into their own schools – majority white schools refuse to admit them – and even their own towns, how they are casually referred to in Hebrew as “nigger” and how they are denied by landlords:
One Israeli property owners explained why Ethiopian Jews should be excluded from living in the small building as that of superior White Jews: “…in order to preserve the apartment’s value and the building’s value.”
This is not an atypical story in a country where racism by senior officials in the occupying IDF – upheld by Israelis as a melting pot of varying Jews – engage in racism with impunity:
“An Ethiopian soldier serving at an Air Force base in southern Israel petitioned the High Court of Justice Thursday over racial slurs hurled at him by a senior officer. The soldier asked the court to order IDF officials to explain why disciplinary action was not being taken against a major whom he claims called him an “annoying nigg*r.””
