The Anti-Racist Campaign

Israel's Ministry of Justice is airing, through television commercials, an anti-racism campaign.

You can view the video clips here.

They play an off-tune version of the national anthem, HaTikvah, and the line "our hope has not yet been lost" appears:-




I wonder what they'd say if someone complained to the special telephone number (1-700-70-60-44)* that, on the basis of race, Jews are banned from fundamental civil liberties and rights guaranteed by law if they attempt to worship at the Temple Mount?

YM:

Only Jews can be racist - and you're an evil, colonial settler too boot!

I'd hazard a guess if you called up their hotline and identified yourself as a Jew from Shilo, they'd either take a report and do nothing or just hang up on your phone call to them.

I doubt this campaign is really aimed at countering endemic Arab racism.
