    This video shows some true colors of racism in the Middle East.

    Racism exists all across the globe.

    It's a deeply rooted, animalistic aversion to "the other" ... tribalism at it's finest.

    But man, that was some first-class swearing. Well done.

    It's no secret that many Israelis view Arabs as second class citizens.

    If you are neither Arab or Israeli and living in Israel...

    True, but it's much more acute towards Arabs cause they are the less powerful and minority in Israel.

    It really isn't much more acute. It is much more displayed on social media. Both sides hate each other as we see in media but the majority in each region are apathetic.

    I'm talking about in Israel itself. There are plenty of Arab Israel citizens. But even if talking about Palestine, the same holds true. It's one thing when it's a social issue, but when it's a political and economic issue, Israel is playing dirty with it's power, and I doubt it would be differ if it was a lack of excuses.

    I think the real issue is the ongoing onslaught of Israel against the Palestinian people.

    Racism exists the world over, its a dire shame.

    Yeh because the Jews and Arabs loved each other before Israel.

    But you could also say the same about Europeans and Jews.

    With the rise of the far right in europe and the rise in anti semitism, the same thing could be said now tbh.

    Boohoo. Christians are being all but exterminated in Mosul. Beheadings, rape, executions, mutilations.

    Jews can barely step out of Israel into any other middle eastern nation, and it sure as hell isn't because Islam is a religion of Peace.

    If Jews want to step out of Israel into other Arab countries then they need to make a serious effort to achieve peace in the region.

    Well Hamas did agree for Palestine to become a member of the ICC so let's see.

    To be fair, the genesis of the state of Israel was kind of ********. Nevertheless, Israel isn't going anywhere and the Arab world needs to accept that. Meanwhile, Israel needs to stop occupying the West Bank and building illegal settlements, for example.

    Before America invaded Iraq there were no beheadings,executions or rape taking place in Mosul. Saddam would have executed anyone raping anyone,executing anyone or beheading anyone. Muslims and Christians lived in peace together in Iraq along with Syria as well. This is completely irrelevant of Islam as Iraq did not fall apart or get invaded due to Islam. If you think ISIS represents Islam then you need some serious help.

    Mmmm hmmm, right. That's why they don't recognize Israeli passports, and won't allow entry to people with Israeli stamps in their passports.

    Once Israel sits down and talks to the Arabs then that will be sorted.

    It's totally contradictory. They say one thing, and do another.

    The Israeli state has encroached on palestinian land, year after year, after year, after year.

    I'm not talking about hamas, I'm talking about israel and palestine..... but you struggle so much with the concept that all muslims aren't the same, and that they're not, by default, terrorists I wouldn't expect you to grasp that concept.

    Hamas is a little more extreme than the other Arab states. And it is unclear whether it would negotiate with Israel if Israel was prepared to talk to it. That point needs clarifying so that pressure can be applied as appropriate.

    Still the other Arab countries and the Palestinean Authority in the West Bank have signed up to the peace plan.

    It's just a freak coincidence that beheadings and muslims frequently turn up in the same place :rolleyes:
