From Rami Gudovitch:
I am exited to accept the invitation to share my thoughts and experiences with the readers of Dr. Rampoldi’s ProMosaik e.V. The ProMosaik e.V is known for its struggle for equal rights for all human beings and for refugee rights and for a society without racial, cultural, and religious discrimination.
To a large extent, the official state of Israel seems to have forgotten, in this sad moment of history, many of the moral commitments that underlay its foundation and its existence. But there is also something else in Israel that I believe is rather unique. Many people in Israel oppose and struggle to stop the racial discrimination of African refugees and asylum seekers in Israel, as they struggle against the discrimination and mistreatment of other communities. I hope the following paragraphs would give a glimpse of this “other side” of Israel. In the following paragraphs, I would like to give some of my thoughts and impressions following the recent 8 years, years that I had spent much of coming to know the rich and diverse communities of African refugees living in Israel.
