I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
Israel’s Politics of Discrimination:
(Eva Illouz) Discrimination is the sophisticated, less blunt, distant cousin of racism. It has the same effects as racism − ranking people by birth − without, necessarily, the same intentions, which is why discrimination is mostly and most often an invisible mechanism. This is also the reason why some legal provisions suggest evaluating discrimination on the basis of facts. But facts alone do not scrutinize the mindset of people working in organizations. If, for example, women represent 50 percent of the population, Arabs and Mizrahim constitute 60 percent of the population and if all three groups have almost never been represented among the rectors, presidents and deans, or been recipients of scientific awards of Israeli universities, we need not enter the minds of the people who make these decisions to suspect discrimination. The proof is in the famous pudding.
My Commentary: Discrimination based on gender, ethnicity, religion, etc… IS PURE FALLACY! Why do some countries get a free pass to engage in this disgusting behavior, while others are outright condemned? :sigh: Critical thinking is at an all-time low in this world.
