I wasn't being sarcastic at all, and I'm VERY MUCH on topic.


You made a comment about race and behavior. I made a comment about race and behavior.



What's so hard to understand??



Black Jews, The UK, South Africa are all going through their Movements...


There's a Movement going on. And certain demographics are more involved this time than in the past.

The white (ashkenazic) Jews in Israel of European descent who are the minority do have some bad apples as other countries do. Being an Israeli doesn't stop white immigrants bringing their prejudice with them and creating generational prejudice. Keep in mind that for the most part these white Jews are nor descended from the survivors of the holocaust or from eastern Europe.
Interesting.

Looks like a "riot" to me:

Protests by Ethiopian Jews turn violent - CNN Video

Whatever terminology people choose to use, the impetus appears to be the same - Black citizens hassled and assaulted for no reason.

It's indefensible.

Compared to the US or France, it was a noisy block party.

Oh please.


What are you trying to do here? What's your motive??



You didn't want to listen. People rioted. It's been happening since the beginning of time. It's not brain science.

Before going any further with your comments, you may want to read some of my past posts. I LIVE in Israel for about 6 weeks every year. You want to see riots in Israel then look up the Haredi who started some massive fires because a law changed that required them to do military service and work.

So the argument is about quality of the riot no the issue that caused it?

The problem in Israel is that the white western European Jews, who are a minority, think they are better then everyone else. All one has to do is look at who is moving into the settlements in the West Bank; It's them. I'm Mizrahi and I've dealt with their negativity. If it's not the Blacks then it's the Sephardics/Mizrahis or the Arabs. That being said it doesn't even come close to what its like in the US or currently in France.
