The World’s Most Racist Nations
According to a recent Washington Post report, India and Jordan are the most racist nations on the planet with more than 40% of the population not wanting another race for their neighbor. Following close behind were other Middle Eastern nations such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and then South East Asian nations such as Vietnam, Indonesia, and South Korea. Unfortunately, the creators of the survey, which the Washington Post report was based on, purposefully left out the most racist nation on the planet: Israel. Although much of the Middle East is included in this survey, Israel is ominously omitted, even though information on Israeli racism is readily available. The association for Civil Rights in Israel(ACRI) took a poll in 2007 which found that 66% of Israeli teens believe Arabs are less intelligent, uncultured, and violent. Fifty percent of the Israelis taking the poll said they would not share an apartment with an Arab, befriend an Arab or let their kids befriend Arabs, or even let Arabs into their homes.
A poll taken by the ACRI in 2008 found that these trends were increasing. Another poll taken in 2007, by the Center Against Racism found that 75% of Israeli Jews did not approve of Jews living in the same apartment buildings as Arabs, and that more than 50% of Jews would not have an Arab boss and thought that marrying an Arab was tantamount to national treason. Fifty percent of Israelis also thought Arabs should not be allowed in the same entertainment sites and 40% wanted Arab’s voting rights rescinded. In 2012, a majority of Israelis said they would support apartheid.
Racism in Israel is not just limited to anti-Arab bias unfortunately, Israeli racism against blacks has actually surpassed anti-Arabism. The racism in Israel has become so severe that Yuval Diskin, the former head of the Israeli Security Agency (Shin Bet), recently admitted that Israel has become “more and more racist.”
A full report on Israeli racism can be found here:
These statistics clearly show that Israel has more than double the level of racism of some of its Middle Eastern neighbors, and about 50 times the level of racism of the Western nations that is supposedly “shares values” with. Since the West, which many people closely associate Israel with, has the lowest levels of racism, the Washington Post report makes it appear as if unbiased Israel is surrounded by racist neighbors. The reality is that Israeli racism far surpasses that of its neighbors and the rest of the world. America should re-consider its financial/political support of the most racist nation on the planet.

In another article Blitzerian examines some of the underpinnings of Jewish racism, as manifested in Israel: In 2010, the leader of the Sephardic community and founder of the Shas party, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, stated that the sole purpose of non-Jews was to serve Jews. He also said in a television interview that “gentiles need to die…goyim have no place in this world.” In the same year, 50 state-paid rabbis signed a letter instructing Jews not to sell or rent houses to Arabs. The letter was then endorsed by another 250 Jewish religious figures. Many of the top Israeli Rabbis issued a religious edict saying, “a thousand non-Jewish lives are not worth a Jew’s fingernail.” The edict went on to say that captured Arab prisoners of war could be used for medical experiments. The religious leaders also decreed that Jewish law forbids renting homes to Arabs or employing them. They based these edicts and proclamations on their holy book, the Talmud, which they claim allows Jews to cheat gentiles and even claims that it is not a sin for a Jew to kill a gentile indirectly. This may explain why Israel had no qualms about firing white phosphorous rockets into Palestinian villages in response to minor terrorist attacks. White phosphorous weapons are internationally illegal because they burn the victims alive in the most grotesque manner possible. When a nation does not view a particular race as human, it is far easier to commit war crimes against them. ”
