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
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.
