Just an Arab.

23 Oct

My fellow Jewish Zionists will hate me for this, but I don’t believe in exclusionism or whatever you call it, when this country insists to be morally superior to the whole damn world.

I want to give an eyewitness example of how the ever-so-praised Israeli Jews do their part in keeping the Jewish-Arab chasm as deep as possible. It’s not just “settlers” who bully Arabs in news-worthy ways, it’s the whole system that does not honor its promise of racial and ethnic equality where it comes to things that have nothing to do with Jewish identity.

A few weeks ago, I had a guy over for the night. Woke up around 4, went to the living room. Even before falling asleep I had heard a girl screaming angrily at someone but couldn’t make out what, or in what language. Now it was still going on and I looked out the window to see what was happening. I found an Arab girl, not very religious from the looks of her outfit and hair, no older than perhaps 22, but more around 18, 19. 3 Arab guys the same age were with her. From what little Arabic I understood, she was angry at at least one of them, lots of “Achosharmuta” and something about mothers. At some point she shoved one of the guys who then grabbed her arm and pulled her into all 3 guys’ reach. She tore free and ran onto the road where a bus was pulling in. She begged the driver to let her in, but when he spotted the three other men, he decided he wanted nothing to do with this and drove off, almost hitting her.

The guy she had shoved, who seemed to be her main “opponent”, ran up to her, pulled her to her feet, punched her to the ground, and kicked her in the back.
At that point I shouted down at them that they need to weigh their actions with witnesses around. I was utterly ignored and the girl, being upset beyond coherent thought, lunged at the guy again, but only weakly lashing at him, not really dangerous in any way.
From just before I shouted at them, my date had joined me and while I was shouting and thinking about what chair to beat those guys up with, he grabbed me and said, “They’re just Arabs, don’t get yourself into trouble for those apes”. Ignored his remark and called the cops.

Now while the bus driver and my date were merely very damn disappointing (does it matter if they’re Arabs when 1 girl is attacked by 3 men?), the police really drained what little was left of my “Holy Land Yay”. Dispatcher asked, all guilty-like, “Are they Arabs?” and at first I thought she just wanted to know for identification purposes. Only later did I stop to think that “3 young men pouncing on 1 screaming girl” should be enough.
I understood why she’d asked that when the police came. They had sent 1 single young man to deal with this. Now the girl was screaming in Hebrew, and it turned out that one of those men had gotten her pregnant against her will (don’t know if it was rape or just irresponsible consensual sex), and in doing so, hurt her mother and her family honor. Judging by how upset she was about this, she must have been in real trouble or at least convinced that she was. The thing is, you don’t send a man to deal with these issues, you send along a woman, ideally an Arab woman who knows about Arab family values and understands why this girl was so distraught. In the end nobody was arrested and my neighbor, as much as I hate that ars for many valid reasons, walked her to safety.

So basically, Arabs here tend to be what African Americans are in the States. Only worth police attention when they (seem to) endanger white people, or here, Jews. Otherwise, send way to few cops way too late and have them do way too little because hey, it’s just Arabs. I don’t care how crazy that girl went on those guys and that she made too little attempts to walk away (when she did, they didn’t let her), they were three men ganging up on a pregnant girl. And the cops took their jolly time to send ONE utterly useless guy.

It’s no wonder Arabs are less than appreciative of their Jewish co-citizens. We desperately squeal Hasbarah all over the Internet and beyond and act all inclusive and accepting and make it all seem like the Arabs’ fault, but when you call the cops on 3 guys beating up 1 girl, ethnicity should not matter and all of Israel’s Hasbararians should be ashamed of this. Jews are doing their share to keep the hate flowing just as much as Arabs are. And it’s bad enough individuals are doing it, but police???

Black people, white people, bullshit people.

11 Jun

My thoughts on the black-white debate:

Strictly speaking, nobody is white – or black. As a painter, I learned that the color of snow or salt or my Persian cat is white. White people are beige, cream, orange, pinkish, or various shades and hues of brown. The latter also goes for black people. They’re brown, because if a non-human object with the same color as their skin were described, the word used would be brown, not black.
They say I’m white but if you were to ask for a dress in the color of my skin, “White” wouldn’t get you what you want. Asians aren’t yellow, lemons are. Black, strictly speaking, is the color of a vinyl record or the better part of a Rottweiler.

So weird that brown, cream, and orange surfaces, when they’re human, are described as the extremes, black and white, when they’re neither – by definition of the color. Basically, the whole black-vs-white discussion is bullshit because the only black thing about a black person, is the hair and the only white thing about a white person, if they’re lucky, are the teeth.

You could go the whole scale of “black” to “white” skin colors in a cup of coffee. A thick coffee with no milk would be considered black, while, held against the light, you can clearly see it’s an intense brown. With each drop of milk, the coffee becomes lighter, covering all the shades from a Massai warrior over Obama all the way down to the sun-fearing ginger kid. The max lightening you’d get though, is off-white or light beige, perhaps with a pinkish hue, but never pure white. All shades of coffee will always be some degree of brown, and the same goes for skin. There are no black or white people, only brown ones.
