When responding to imaginary racism in real racism

Salman Masalha wrote in Haaretz that the state of "Zionist evil" "has no right to exist", all because of some questions he was asked at Ben Gurion Airport. And also: why was it important for him to emphasize the "black color" of the security guard?

In other words, according to Masalha's testimony, he was received at the gates of Ben Gurion Airport kindly, approached with one technical question while waiting in line for check-in, and again, a few moments later, while several other questions were of an informative technical nature. On this minor incident, Masalha was so furious that he came out in a froth against the "racists of Z.....m" from the "rotten kingdom of I....l," the same "men" whose "little heads" brazenly ask him the "usual stupid questions." The same "Ophir." Who seemed to him to be of Oriental descent, described as follows:

Ophir is a young and black security man. Perhaps a descendant of converts from the southern Arabian Peninsula, and perhaps from the Atlas Mountains. But one thing was clear as sun, its black color looked very faded, tattered and stained with evil.

The effluent that he poured on the State of Israel was wiped out by Masalha in a statement that "there is no right to exist" for the state of "Z... evil", which deserves, a Nazi like her, to come next time at the gates of its airport with a yellow badge. And Haaretz found all this worthy of publication.

When the newspaper's publisher, Amos Schocken, was asked on Twitter if he did not think Masalha's tongue was racist ("his black color looks very faded"), he initially said no, as "indistinguishable from the context", but eventually agreed and admitted that it might make sense. Of Masalha, who interpreted his experience in the field as racism towards him, was "to respond in racist language to show that racism can be two-way." In other words, the Haaretz publisher admits that his newspaper gave rise to a racist remark by one of his writers.

Zero kidnappings since 1968

If we extend the discussion beyond the author's racist and extremist language, then Foam goes against the "profiling" method - the selective inspection method used at Ben-Gurion Airport, which concentrates the security check on people whose profile, consisting of their religion, national affiliation or origin, May pose a danger in some data. Since Haaretz has sharply chosen to categorize the method, it is worthwhile to understand what the profiling method is, what its advantages and disadvantages are and what has been done over the years to improve and reduce as much as possible the discomfort and humiliation it may cause Israeli Arabs ...
