Israeli ‘racism’

I AM disturbed about protests in the Israeli town of Afula.

Many residents, together with the mayor, have taken to the streets because a Jewish resident plans to sell his house to an Israeli-Arab.

The protesters have called for “a Jewish-only town”.

How can this not be racist? It seems no different to the American Deep South in the 1950s.

There were similar protests there against integration, and they were correctly attacked by the civilised world as nothing but naked racism.

If Jews were on the receiving end of similar treatment, we would rightly hear howls of protest.

Our Jewish community leaders call out this shocking racism.
