Israele, uno Stato razzista (Scaffale aperto/Sociologia) by Mario Moncada di Monforte

By Mario Moncada di Monforte

Israele uno Stato razzista non è un pamphlet contro gli ebrei né contro l'ebraismo ma, secondo l'autore, chi conosce l. a. storia del mondo e sa delle vessazioni inflitte agli Ebrei lungo i duemila anni della storia d'Europa fino ai crimini del razzismo nazista, non può rimanere stupito e sconcerta nel constatare che oggi gli Ebrei sionisti governano Israele con un comportamento chiaramente razzista. Il saggio, scritto da un autore che descrive l'ebraismo come l. a. religione spirituale più raffinata e umanamente più costruttiva, documenta le ragioni delle affermazioni delle affermazioni di Finkelstein esclusivamente con testimonianze dirette di ebrei che, in Israele e nel mondo, protestano according to il razzismo sionista che discrimina e maltratta non solo i Palestinesi, ma anche gli ebrei non ashkenaziti, cioè non europei.
