My op-ed in today: “...falsify reality in their discussions of Palestinians’ “intersectional” struggle, their use of the term “apartheid” to characterize Israeli policy, and their tendency to define Israelis as Ashkenazi Jews alone.”
Excellent oped ⁦⁩ by ⁦. Important to add that Jews are not “white”. We are Jews. period. Jews were designated “Semites” so Europeans could exclude them, and they are designated “white” for same purpose. It is NEVER about facts.
Reminder: “I am Mizrahi, as are the majority of Jews in Israel today. We are of Middle Eastern and North African descent. Only about 30% of Israeli Jews are Ashkenazi. I am baffled as to why some ignore or misrepresent these facts and the Mizrahi story.”
"Only about 30% of Israeli Jews are Ashkenazi, or the descendants of European Jews. I am baffled as to why mainstream media and politicians around the world ignore or misrepresent these facts and the Mizrahi story."

A powerful reminder that some misconceptions are unjust and prejudice. #Israel is a mix of color, skin and history of people who struggled to build their home.
Excellent article by reminding that (far from perfect) Israel is not the white, western, colonialist society that outsiders often see. So much of Israel is truly part of the Middle East - for better or worse.
"No, Israel isn’t a country of privileged and powerful white Europeans" by the brilliant reminds me of witnessing Persian Jews screamed at & called white supremacists on campus. Not normal. Can we PLEASE let Jews of color speak for themselves?

"Any erasure of the Mizrahi experience negates the lives of 850,000 Jewish refugees just like them... Demographic ignorance also works to deny the existence of almost 200,000 descendants of Ethiopian Jews."
The colonial narrative regarding Israel is especially strong in Latin America. Thanks to for countering the idea with those crazy things called facts.
I suspect many who think they know Israel - perhaps especially those who spend their time criticizing it - will be surprised by this piece. Great work ⁦⁩ .
ICYMI: powerful writing from on the reality of Israel's identity, circa 2019.
Mizrahi Jews, along with so many others, regardless of skin color, shared the desire for a Jewish state long before the establishment of Israel.
Excellent article from the about Israel and Israeli identity from a perspective many Americans are either unaware of or outright ignore because it doesn't fit their agenda.
An eye-opening article by ⁦⁩ highlighting the appropriation of American racial history (that never happened in Israel) to create a new kind of anti-Israel propaganda with familiar themes for westerners not in the know. Must read/must share
