Unknown vandals spray-painted swastikas and hate slogans, including "Death to 'n-word's," on the gravestone of a woman of Ethiopian descent in Beersheba.

This is so ignorant! I am not sure if this was done for the symbolism or out of sheer stupidity. The article doesn't say how or when the woman died. However, the fact of the matter is, she was dead already. Are they professing that this is where people of her ethnicity belong in the grave? Or are they just that stupid? I am going to presume it was stupidity.

any one who uses a Swastika is a fool "thay lost and did more harm to white europeans than anybody bar stalin" and is stopping race relations moveing forward. now any one who thinks there is a difference between races has to put up with being grouped with these loony guys that just want to kill and harass people.

This is what struck me as odd as well. That's why I'm leaning on the whole stupidity notion.

There are a tremendous amount of Ethiopian Jews in Israel today. On the other hand there are also a lot of immigrants from the former Soviet Union residing in Israel today, and this is not the first story of a hate crime linked to that group.

It's hard to decide what happened in this instance. I have spent time in Israel. There are people who live there who are proud Russian Jews, for example, and they berate other Israelis, calling them Polish Jews or English Jews, what have you. Nonny nonny boo boo, you aren't as good a Jew as meeeeeeeee...........

A dear friend of mine who lives in Israel was talking to another American, saying, would it be too much to allow Israeli's to move to the U.S. and find some sort of peace and security.
The other American said, not a problem with me, but you would have to assimilate to our culture.

My Israeli friend was quite upset with this. She wants to retain her special Jewish/Israeli identity.

However, months later, my friend spoke of the Ethiopian Jews, the black folks, who migrate to Israel. My friend teaches art in a school where they help Ethiopians assimilate into Israeli society. She sees no problem with this, since they are leaving their country and moving to another country and must learn to accept the societal norms of their new country.

Funny, ain't it? Naw.

Israel is a country where some people claim superiority due to which country they orginated in, how much the people of those countries suffered at the hands of anti-Jews, etc.
