Israel's rejection of Ugandan Jews highlights bigger problem of ethnic supremacy

The outrage of liberals at Israel's anti-Black racism, while failing to acknowledge Zionism's inherent racism, is a sad reminder of how much more work remains to be done

After Israel’s interior ministry recently announced that members of the Jewish community of Uganda are not allowed to immigrate to Israel, many progressive Israelis and diaspora Jews denounced the decision as racist.

Of course it is; racism is a defining characteristic of Zionism, which privileges one ethnic group over others. The decision is also in keeping with the virulent anti-Black racism plaguing Israel, equalled or surpassed only by the country’s anti-Palestinian racism.

More importantly, it confirms that not all Jews who wish to become Israeli are “returning” to their ancestral homeland.
