is israel a racist country ?
-RACISM IN ISRAEL- Racism directed towards Blacks Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, has been the subject of some viciously racial personal attacks, alongside vociferous criticism of her policies. These included an anti-black racist Cartoon in Palestinian Authority's controlled Press Al Quds. The New York Times reported in 2006 "Her comment that the Israel-Lebanon war represented the “birth pangs of a new Middle East”— coming at a time when television stations were showing images of dead Lebanese children — sparked ridicule and even racist cartoons. A Palestinian newspaper, Al Quds," which "depicted Ms. Rice as pregnant with an armed monkey, and a caption that read, “Rice speaks about the birth of a new Middle East."  The Palestinian media has used racist terms including "black spinster" and "colored dark skin lady. Racism towards blacks during times of slavery Chattel slavery in the Ottoman Palestine included both black Africans and people of other ethnicities, many of whom circulated through the Arab slave trade. Nineteenth century travelers accounts tell of being served by black eunuch slaves. The trade was suppressed in the Ottoman Empire beginning in the mid-19th century, and slavery was legally abolished in 1889. Late 19th-century slaves in Palestine included enslaved Africans and the sold daughters of poor Palestinian peasants. British mandate officials reported no chattel slavery in mandate Palestine as of 1924. Black slaves were owned by Bedouin in the Negev, who had a proverb, "Don't buy a black slave unless you have a stick; for slaves are not just filthy, but importunate too. "The yellow badge (or yellow patch)", was first introduced in ISLAMIC countries to subrogate jews,christians,hindus & bahai from the local ISLAMIC population long before the NAZIS! 60% of the jews in israel ("mizrahi jews") are refugees from ISLAMIC countries! the first "documented" massacre in the holy land is the "Hebron massacre 1929" google: "Hitler&The Mufti Of Jerusalem" "Jewish exodus from Arab lands" "yellow badge" "plunder of Safed 1834" "Farhud" "Dhimmi" "tiberias massacre" "granada massacre" "Damascus affair" "1934 Thrace Pogroms" "Shiraz blood libel 1910" "Aleppo pogroms 1853,1875,1947" "Jaffa riots 1921" " "Conversion of non-Muslim places of worship into mosques" jews("old yishuv") were ethnically cleansed from gaza,hebron,Judea&Samaria, leaving behind their homes,shops E.T.C...(their grave stones desecrated, used as pavements and latrines) in many cases the new muslim occupiers didn't even bother to erase the david star marks engraved by the former jewish owners on the stone gates and they are still visible today to the naked eye. youtube>> "Hebron massacre 1929,arabs and jews used to live in peace ?" Funny thing.... muslims say israel is a racist country (since we all know islam is a race ! LOL) yet muslims are taking refuge in israel from OTHER muslims genociding them ! no other muslim country is helping darfurians ! youtube>> "Israel embraces Darfur" youtube>> "Darfur Children Start Over in Israeli Schools" islam is a great religion isnt it ?

No. In fact, Israel is the most open and free place in the Middle East. The only country that is a democracy, that has the freedoms it has, and that any citizen, regardless of their race, religion, color or previous nationality, may participate, fully, in that democratic process.

I believe yes. I also think it is one of the worst racist countries in the world and that it gets away with it because of its use of Lobbies. But I do not say all Jews are racist nor all Israelis. I also believe Israel has the right to exist like everyone else
