That’s a mighty interesting coincidence

Does anybody else see any similarities between the 14 countries other than Israel that are boycotting the UN’s review conference on anti-racism?

I can’t seem to quite put my finger on it…

Canada: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
United States: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
Italy: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
Australia: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
Germany: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
the Netherlands: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
New Zealand: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
Poland: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
Denmark: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
European Union: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
Sweden: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
France: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
United Kingdom: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European
Czech Republic: Population overwhelmingly caucasian/white/European

This graph helps put the situation into perspective.

    While I understand that you are extremely anti-Israel in your outlook and I don’t want to debate that with you– I won’t change your mind and you won’t change mine. But I do think it’s important to clarify something…

    “White/Caucasian/European” is a minority in Israel.

    As per Wikipedia:
    Nearly 60% of Israeli Jews are Arab Jews, Iranian Jewish, Turkish Jewish, Kurdish Jewish, Berber Jewish, Bukharan Jews, and other Afro-Asiatic countries or are descended from such Jews, and about 40% are European or descended from European Jews. Over two hundred thousand are, or are descended from, Ethiopian and Indian Jews.[4] There are also Chinese Jews, Afghani Jews, Pakistani Jews, and many other communities.

    I know Wiki’s not a source, but there are valid sources which it links you to.

    For the sake of honesty and veracity, I thought you should know. This claim that Israelis are mostly European is totally bogus and serves only to delegitimize the state’s existence. It’s not a legitimate criticism– and as you well know, there are plenty of those to expose, so you may as well put this one to rest.

    Best,
    Yaron M
