There was a problem with neo-Nazis arising from Russian immigrants to Israel a few years ago.

I was wondering how people who are not from a Jewish background are accepted in Israel. According to this article, the Fillipinos, being traditionally Catholic, seem to be managing rather well.
The Filipinos are marrying Israelis in order to stay in Israel and therefore intergrate into the local society.

That would be a problem esp since the country imports people that have no real attachment to the Jewish religion or culture, especially when people don't feel any connection if one of their grandparents or great grandparents who were Jewish.

So its all hearsay then.. No actual proof. I thought so. I've heard Americans make comments about Mexicans being illegal in the this country.. does this mean all Mexicans are illegal? No way, Jose. In WWII nazis made comments about jews.. was that true.. not.

IF you are going to stereotype an entire group of people.. at least provide some facts, not from hearsay.

Can people try to refrain from making blanket assumptions about an entire group of people? People who can't.. are just plain ignorant and are malisciously spreading lies.

Very interesting to hear that Filipinos are going to Israel to work as domestic workers.

It is not exactly hearsay as I remember reading some articles about this in the Hebrew language Israeli press online perhaps a year ago or more. I also know an Israeli who personally knows a Filiphino woman in Israel who married an Israeli whose sister was looking for an Israeli guy to marry in order to stay in Israel. So I don't see this as hearsay as there are certainly cases to prove this.

So if someone told you that Jews are all cheap and are money hungry would you agree? Its on web sites, its what some (ignorant) people say. Yes there are cases but your statement above implies ALL OF THEM. Stop making generalizations. Yes there are Jews that are cheap.. but you don't see me posting comments that they're ALL cheap and money hungry
