|Israeli Flag (edited version of This one)|
For those who think that women in power would make this world a better place: Sofa Landver has just proved you wrong.
Sofa Landver is a Minister of Immigrant Absorption. This position implies doing the utmost for the integration of Jewish Immigrants in Israel. But apparently, Minister Landver’s utmost effort to integrate immigrants (olim) is done according to the immigrants’ amount of skin melanin.
Kiryat Malakhi’s housing committees do not consider Ethiopian Jews worthy of buying their homes (even though they can afford them). Of course, this generated outrage among the Beta-Israel community (and decent Israelis in general) and so they protested against this obvious act of racism. And what was the Absorption Minister’s response to the protests? “Ethiopian Immigrants should be grateful [for what they have received from Israel]”. Israel is the one that should be thankful to Ethiopian Jews and not the other way around. Must we remind Minister Landver the Purpose behind Operation Moses, Operation Joshua and Operation Solomon? When these rescue operations occurred, Ms Landver was old enough to make a proper use of her grey cells.
Ethiopian Jews (Beta Israel) are mostly descendants of the House of Judah and there may very well be descendants of the House of Menelik (the son of King Solomon and Queen Sheba) somewhere among them and, I can only imagine what these might be thinking right now.
Does it make sense at all for certain Jews to be racist? Given the Jewish history of persecutions throughout the ages and genocide; no, it doesn’t. Racism in the heart of Israel is unacceptable, shameful, hypocritical, immoral and, mostly, amoral.
Before moving on, I have one question: did Hitler spare the blue-eyed-blond Jews in Germany and Eastern Europe?
Make no mistake: when evil comes after the Jewish People it doesn’t discriminate and, it is only then when certain Jewish fools realise that, regardless the colour of the skin, the Chosen People is all the same.
Sofa Landver is a Russian-born and raised Jew and a member of the Yisrael Beiteinu; a hard line political party representing Soviet immigrants. Given this fact, it is easy to grasp the reaction of this fascist minister; but what I don’t quite understand is why PM Netanyahu keeps giving space to the Far Right to sabotage his tenure.
Coalitions are to be respected, no doubt about that; however when these put in peril a re-election...
Racist Jews insist upon trying to show the idiots around the world (who say there is apartheid in Israel) that they are right. They also insist on giving prominent figures, like Desmond Tutu, material to side with the Palestinians – regardless of their terrorist acts.
This sort of Israelis is a liability to the Jewish State; and a menace to the security of the Jewish Diaspora.
In summa: racists have no place in Israel and reckless politicians can cost her future.
