I've been to Israel twice. Went to Haifa, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem. Haifa was like being I. An American city except for the signs' languages. I enjoyed my time there and wish I could have stayed longer.

It seems these days that USA is just as much a target of Muslim extremists as Israel.

I don't know the current situation -- but at one time, Israel and Egypt were the 2 largest recipients of U.S. foreign aid money in the world.

Get a second passport/nationality if you are entitled to one.

You can get what's called a "second passport" from the State Department to avoid those kinds of situations.

Jews aren't White to begin with, we're Middle Eastern. Continuing to say we're White only makes the Arabs think we're "colonialists" even more than they already do. Fact is that we're the aboriginals of the Holy Land--genetics and archaeology prove it.

But I do agree with your sentiment otherwise

Actually "true" Middle Easterners are White (some may have a olive tint to them). The one's with different levels of dark skin are crossed with Africans. If we look at Yemen this will be pretty prevalent as their trade was by sea. Dark skin Jews are known as Sephardi Jews.

No; Middle Easterners may be Caucasoid in bone structure--as South Asians, Europeans, and Ethiopians are--but that vast majority of us don't consider ourselves "White". Nor do White people even think of us as such.

Or were you referring to skin tone? Even then, most are somewhat tan/olive.

No, Dima you are incorrect. I'm Mizrahi and I'm White. My DNA test showed me to be 98% in common with those of the Levant.
