Go ahead! Compare real Arab racism with Israel

Let's compare Arab racism with bogus anti-Arab racism charges on Israel

Report Details Israeli "Racism"
Arutz Sheva, Israel - Dec 9, 2007
Similarly, the demand that Arab government ministers and MKs must pledge allegiance to the Jewish State is considered "racist,"...

OK, I don't know about you, but I think I had enough of Arab racists and Israel's radical left's beating Israel up with charges of "racism".

Let's make a run down on racism, who is who, who is what.

Israelis overwhelmingly 1) give a right for one more Arab state, and 2) give Arab 'Palestinians' a right to exist though 3) not a real democracy by any standard.

Arabs are [thus far] mostly racist and 1) do NOT give the 2) only one Jewish state a right to exist, even though in fact it is a 3) free democracy and equal to all.

Israeli Arabs are at least 20% of its population, many achieve high roles in Israel's democratic pluralistic society, (ironically the Arab members of Israel's government use it to stab Israel in the back and still demonetizing it for being "discriminatory", imagine that) the number of Jews in [racist ethnic cleansing] Arab "Palestinian" called area = exactly zero!

There's not one Arab Islamic terror attack on innocent Israelis that does not involve help from Israeli "loyal" Arabs, that seek attacks on Israeli Jews out of pure racism.

Arab racism enslaves & commits most horrific genocide in Sudan, Chad, etc. humanitarian Israel accepts African refugees.

There's not one minority (including indigenous) that it's exempt from oppression, discrimination in all of the racist Arab world: Kurds in syria, Iraq etc., Al Akhdam in Yemen, Berbers in [Arab] North Africa, indigenous Nubians in Egypt, the Copts in Egypt, Asians in Arabia...

Racism at root of Sudan's Darfur crisis csmonitor.com Reluctance to call it genocide

Hence, just when we Blacks thought that colonialism was over, or that apartheid in South Africa was the final obstacle to liberation of Blacks in Africa, we find one of the most horrible atrocities being committed against Africans in Sudan, racism against native Africans in North Africa, the total submersion of the aboriginal Nubians and Black Egyptians who live in Egypt today and are the heirs of Egyptian civilization, and atrocities in places like Mauritania and elsewhere.http://www.raceandhistory.com/cgi-bin/forum/webbbs_config.pl/noframes/read/556

The word "NUBIANS" has been used to designate the indigenous Africans of the area adjacent to the southern borders of ancient Egypt. http://books.google.com/books?id=9ZtsNo5r6dsC&pg=PA104&lpg=PA104&dq=racism+egypt+indigen ous+nubians&source=web&ots=WoyVQ2T2uv&sig=mRFFX0-FyP2fFthQS77oeloagAo

Arab racism must go. There will be no peace around here before Arabs view Jews as human beings

There are two causes of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The first is Arab racism, which rejects any presence that is not Arab in its neighborhood; the second is Islamic intolerance which leads to the same rejection.

Racism is a worldwide phenomenon. In some countries it's met with disapproval, in others with denial. The Arab countries, mostly, fall into the latter category. The A to Z of ethnic and religious groups in the Middle East embraces Alawites, Armenians, Assyrians, Baha'is, Berbers, Chaldeans, Copts, Druzes, Ibadis, Ismailis, Jews, Kurds, Maronites, Sahrawis, Tuareq, Turkmen, Yazidis and Zaidis (by no means an exhaustive list), and yet serious discussion of ethnic/religious diversity and its place in society is a long-standing taboo.

"What ought to be a civilised debate has, at street level, taken a nasty turn. People complain that Syrian workers ‘come here and take our jobs'. The Syrians ‘flood our markets' with their cheap melons and tomatoes, and, as a result, are ‘ruining our agriculture'. This is the familiar language of racism the world over. If Syrian workers could afford to buy houses in Lebanon they would no doubt also be accused of bringing down property values by their presence. "The other day a Syrian walked into the lobby of the hotel where I was staying in Beirut and inquired politely if there were any jobs. He had obviously done his best to look smart, but his clothes were so old and unfashionable that he could not possibly be mistaken for someone Lebanese. He was told, in the most abrupt terms, to get lost."One statistic constantly cited by the Lebanese to back up their complaints is that there are up to a million Syrian workers in Lebanon. If they all send a dollar a day back to Syria, that's a million dollars that Lebanon is ‘losing' every day."Syria, in turn, has its own abused minority - about 2 million Kurds (among a total population of more than 17 million), some 200,000 of whom are not even recognised as citizens. The grievances that Syrian Kurds speak of - lack of recognition for their language and culture, marginalisation and attempts to suppress their identity through dispersion and "Arabisation" - are familiar ones, shared with many other ethnic groups. After several days of violence in the country's Kurdish region a couple of years ago, the Syrian embassy in Paris issued a statement denying that the conflict had anything to do with ethnic tensions and blaming politically motivated "troublemakers" instead.In Egypt last December, police brutally attacked another unpopular group - Sudanese migrants. With batons and water cannon they set upon 2,000 men, women and children who had been camped near the UN refugee office in Cairo for three months. More than 20 migrants died in the mayhem as onlookers reportedly cheered.In the Gulf states, where armies of poor guest workers do all the hard and dirty jobs, racial...

Professor Tariq Modood of Bristol University: "Arab racism is such that most Pakistanis would prefer to work in Britain than in Saudi Arabia for a higher income; racist humiliations from shop-keepers, taxi- drivers, catering staff and so on have become a regular feature of the pilgrimage to Mecca for the diverse ethnic groups of Islam."
