Conversation: Are black tourists safe in Israel?

Where do you live? No, I don’t want to be part of this I made aliya
(immigrated) three years ago You have an Ethiopian ass I wish Speak in Hebrew if you want I do think that they are welcome to come here It is more, how can I say this as African Americans
they will be more accepted more welcome than Ethiopians that come here You mean, people from the
Third World the developing world What racism have you
experienced in your life? Here as a black woman – from me of course
(her Arab Israeli friend) I am a minority here so… I have the privilege as a minority
so I can be racist towards them It is more acceptable to … Arabs are much more discriminated against… The Yemenites don’t like the Moroccans But the Arabs are the
most inferior in Israeli society Also the Ethiopian people
are also… What racism did you experience? Many times in restaurants many times I saw an ad that they were looking for waitresses and they would say
“yes, we are looking” but they would point me
to working in the kitchen I heard that a lot I would say “I don’t want
to work in the kitchen, I want to be…” I heard that a lot Yes, it is something they want you to work in the kitchen and not to wait tables so that is a form of racism
even if it doesn’t… No, that is racist but if you protest This really really bothers me this “we would support you but…” “if you weren’t violent” It is really not right When will people finally think
to support the powerless minorities here? We had enough! We are sick of this! So the only excuse they can give is “they are violent so we can’t support them” but it is clear that it is it is a condescending rhetoric
by the average Israeli that says “you are a minority
and we will accept you, so to speak” “Wow, it is great that you
are a minority” “sit on the sidelines quietly
don’t make too much noise” “and if you make too much noise,
you are violent, a terrorist” or whatever I understand half of that but

  1. As an Israeli, If I was a witness to what that girl was going through – that she was looking for a job as a waitress and they would offer her a kitchen position beacuse she's black… I would burn that restaurant

  2. Please interview Mohammed Zoabi!

    A brave voice that deserves to be heard!
    And his wonderful mother too

  3. Corey this is so funny to me and so random and I love it.. I just hijacked your video and don't even know what it was until now.. it's awesome what you are trying to do.. thanks for letting me bogaurd my way in..

  4. 9:54 I believe it is against Jewish law to refer negatively to someone whose ancestors had converted to Judaism, voluntarily or by force. I believe this dates back to the time of the Mishnah when there were many such people from the tribes surrounding Judaea.

  5. I love seeing tourists in Israel, I love to see people from everywhere, black, white, asian, it is so pleasant to see new faces ❤️❤️❤️

  6. Black and white Americans are both racist and the dynamic is messed up. The blacks don’t help themselves and the whites don’t want to deal with blacks.
    Europe and Israel is no where near as racist as people from USA

  7. The Jewish Western Wall is always flooded with African Christian tourists, but if a Jew steps foot on the Temple Mosque all the Muslims riot for days.

  8. Israel is one of the safest countries in the Middle East. I have never been to Israel but let me tell you I would feel safer there than in Saudi Arabia, any of the Gulf countries or Iran. In Israel, everyone is treated fairly, whether you are Muslim, Christian, Jew or something else, black, white or brown, secular or religious.

  9. Loving the argument about who's the biggest victim. Everyone trying to claim it. Poor Corey as a Canadian has nothing lol

  10. the terrorist state of israel pay black folks well to be professional hasbara agents. anyone willing to lie for terrorists will earn a good living in israel.

  11. It is, of course, true that within the Israeli Jewish population, there is discrimination against the Mizrahi Jews and even more against the  Ethiopian Jews. Russian Jews too. But while intra-Jewish racism exists, the major division within the Israeli society is not between black and white, but between Jewish and non-Jewish, and in particular between Israeli Jewish and Palestinian. That is inescapable.

  12. Corey, can you please do a video about Argentinians in Israel? I'm talking about the ones that have been there relatively recently, like in the past few years. I am curious to know what they think about their country, if they would go back there. I've noticed that Argentinians love their country, but because of the bad economics there (high inflation), they choose to live elsewhere. I was there last year and I loved it!!

  13. Can you ask the same question of more people?
    Also would it be possible to get a black person to do the interview questions? (Because of the Observer Effect)

  14. 03:20 למה את מצפה? את שחורה ולא אתיופית, מן הסתם שאת לא יהודיה, כי לא היו עוד קהילות יהודיות שחורות חוץ באתיופיה.
    למעט כל מיני מתחזים כמו "בית ישראל" או Black hebrew israelites.

  15. ליטרלי ארבעה ממורמרות מתמסכנות ומתקרבנות ורבות מי הכי מופלה.

  16. Corey I have a question. I want you to ask isreal people or show a picture of a sikh. Then ask do they know where they are from and by their appearance would they be scared by assuming they are Muslim fundementalist. Thanks

  17. "Palestina" is no an ethnic group that is the name that Roma empire give to Israel when they conquer the land of Juda Israel
    and that who calls themselves "Palestine's " that in Hebrew languets translate is an invader =palestine
    the Arabs lie because they want this land but The Arabs of some who call themselves Palestinians when they settled in Israel during the Ottoman period who are themselves Arabs who ruled Israel between 1516-1917
    For 400 years the Turks ruled Israel and the Ottomans (Turks)
    Believers in the Qur'an and they gave the Arabs of all the countries around Israel the server entry to the country and that means that all the Arabs in the land of Israel who call themselves "Palestinians"
    They are actually from the west of Jordan and Egypt

  18. 3:25 – if i say you're racist, then you ARE a racist. — she must be a mind-reader since she thinks it's okay for her to impugn motives to someone. –it doesn't matter how you self-identify, how you see yourself, what values you hold, what your world-view is, people like her will just slap a label on you at her own whim, & will declare to all who will listen "who you are".

  19. Can we appreciate the enthusiasm in that woman with the braids? Like she is beautiful and charismatic. What a fun person to be around

  20. ( confusion utter confusion)
    Amos 9:7-15
    [7]Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?
    [8]Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD.
    [9]For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
    [10]All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.
    [11]In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
    [12]That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.
    [13]Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
    [14]And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
    [15]And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

  21. There are racist people here like any place
    But most of us not!
    We love black people and we love people in general 😍

  22. Nice to know, me and my husband want to live there and worship in Israel. Israel is a beautiful country. This video is a breath of fresh air. Thanks for this video.

  23. As Judaism crumbles having been shown a false religion like other religions & as rational thinking and science education spread apartheid will bite the dust.

  24. Such a great piece. I think because of the history of brutal racism here in the USA, Black Americans are afraid of other places being just the same. And sounds like the take of the American woman she feels there is more tribalism, than racism present.

  25. This is my favourite video from Corey, not because of the topics although they were incredibly interesting.

    I enjoyed it because all of you seem so to be having so much enjoyment just talking, I learnt from your videos that Israel is a beautiful and tolerant place to visit.


  27. Why is everyone talking about race is it that important they say never judge a book by its cover but in isreal they do

  28. Given the fact that you were only able to interview 3 black tourists or residents(daughters of Zion) on this issue speaks volume.

  29. Mizrahim are not Arabs, we are both Semitic yes, we are both belong to the same meta racial group, sure.

    We have a lot of similarities between us, no one deny.

    But we are not the same subrace, we split thousands of years ago, we developed different mutations and different genetic signature.

    Mizrahim Jews are the direct descendants of ancient Hebrews from Judea kingdom, and Arabs are our cousins.

    In addition North African Jews are genetically about 50% or more sephardic,

    so saying that Mizrahim and Arabs are the same, is not make any sense, is like saying that Japanese and Chinese are the same.

  30. No they are not save in Israel just as their brothers in colour the ethiopians aren't because they hate the all blacks wether Sudanese or african american.

  31. I love every human being as long as he is not bad for me or the society around us, but we must know, there was a man named Noah, and Noah had 3 sons, "shem" ham, and, "yefet, and they were different because God wanted, God didn't want That one hated one another, but God did not want one to learn the other's bad things if he had it in his nature, for example: God told Noah that sexual intercourse should not be allowed in the Noah's Ark, especially when his creatures of God were drowning in the flood. And the crow, and ham, went over the command of God and they both turned black, so it is written in the ancient books of the Jews. And those who do not believe it will then explain to me: 1 How from nowah did one black go out? 2. If there are several types of blood How did the first person emerge several types of blood ?! 3. How did the first person emerge several types of people, different in external appearance ?!

  32. Good point at 7:20. Africans are tribal af. (That's also how the slave trade flourished, tribes captured and sold enemy tribesmen and women). How's that different than "white" vs "black" tribalism, aka racism?

  33. YouTube should have paid long time ago, contact them they , you have been working for so many years and have so many views

  34. the arab guy , let me tell you about him .
    he is israeli arab , his family is fmale politician who supported terrists and terrorisen , anti-israeli .
