Leave it to an Israeli politician, the country’s powerful Interior minister in this case, to make the oft-denied parallel between Jewish supremacy in Israel and white supremacy in South Africa as explicit as possible:
[O]n Sunday, Israeli daily Maariv published an interview with Interior Minister Eli Yishai, in which he stated that most of the “Muslims that arrive here do not even believe that this country belongs to us, to the white man.”
“I will continue the struggle until the end of my term, with no compromises,” Yishai continued, stating that he would use “all the tools to expel the foreigners, until not one infiltrator remains.”
Racism exists everywhere, as your liberal Zionist friend has probably already reminded you. The difference is that in the case of Israeli racism, every U.S. politician of national importance (or who wishes to be important some day) pledges their support for it. When the likes of Nancy Pelosi speak fondly of a “Jewish democratic state,” they are speaking fondly of a state that values perceived tribal identity — and supremacy — over true democracy for all of its inhabitants.
My tip to Israeli pols, though: if you want to continue your white settler project in the Middle East, you’re going to want to quit drawing attention to the fact that Israel is a white settler project in the Middle East. American politicians are fine with supporting racism and colonialism, obviously, but the more liberal-minded prefer that fact to be obscured.
