I shall start with an African anecdote, for as you know, I was born and raised in Central Africa and also haved lived in the southern part of that continent, which is very close to my heart.

I thought this article ‘Tu seras Juif, mon fils’, which is the story of a Congolese Christian who, with the blessings of his family, has converted to Judaism, might interest you, knowing that there are about 170,000 Ethiopian Jews living in Israel, as well as tens of thousands of African-Americans who claim they belong to one of the lost Hebrew tribes (also considered as Israeli citizens).  Of course, there are racists everywhere, even in Israel, where some Ashkenazi (of East European origin) look down on Sephardim (southern Europeans, or Jews, formerly living in North Africa and in the Arab Middle East), and the same goes for African and other Jews.  But in the whole, it is a much more open country than most – and here I refer to our so-called developed Western societies.  I am witness to this, since I’ve been at least a dozen times to Israel and to Palestine (the West Bank – my last visit there was in Novembre 2011).
