As an Israeli-American citizen, I have long tried to explain to American Jews that Israel is a bi-polar society. This is because Israelis are not all of one mind about things, no matter what Fox News will tell you, and in spite of right wing parties like Likkud, Yisrael Beiteinu and Shas would have you believe.
Israeli Jews who stand up for the dignity, rights and justice of and for all are among the best human beings in the world. They are not few and far between, they are nearly half of the country… But there is another nearly half of the country who I am not so proud of – people who are a shanda, who give Jews, Judaism and Israel a bad name that the rest of us do not deserve.
I will not tell you about these people, I will let you see them for yourself in the video below. Too many are silent about these sorts of people. Please do not maintain this silence. Spread this far and wide; the racist right in Israel need to be called out and shamed.
