White men will survive a bit of verbalized distrust on the internet. The UN was instrumental in the creation of Israel and stands impotent behind their slaughter. Feelings of individuals are one thing, but they don’t stand for much but pain.
I am sure they will. I still see it as racism though. It is not okay to say “Muslim and/or Arab men will survive a bit of verbalized distrust on the internet" because of ISIS, Qaeda, Child marriages, or the Arabic Slave trade (which was alive & well till the 19th century).

"We rue the militarization of Israel and the army’s discriminatory policies. One example is the way women are often relegated to low-ranking secretarial positions. Another is the screening system that discriminates against Mizrachi (Jews whose families originate in Arab countries) by keeping them from being fairly represented inside the army’s most prestigious units. In Israeli society, one’s unit and position determines much of one’s professional path in the civilian afterlife.”
“The military enshrines an image of the “good Israeli,” who in reality derives his power by subjugating others.The central place of the military in Israeli society, and this ideal image it creates, work together to erase the cultures and struggles of the Mizrachi, Ethiopians, Palestinians, Russians, Druze, the Ultra-Orthodox, Bedouins, and women.”
Kudos to Yael Even Or for her courage! This piece reveals a lot of what is beneath Israel’s facade of a “democratic” society!
