Ethnic bias against Middle Eastern Jews within Israel has far-reaching implications for the whole region.
Middle Eastern Jews from Egypt, Morocco, Iraq, Yemen, and other Arab or Muslim lands—"Mizrahis"—make up nearly half of Israel's population. Yet European or "Ashkenazi" Jews have historically disparaged them for looking like Arabs, speaking Arabic, and bringing with them what was viewed as a "backward" Middle Eastern culture. Journalist Rachel Shabi, who was born in Israel to Iraqi Jews and grew up in England, returned to investigate the subtle discrimination and tense relations that still exist between Mizrahi and Ashkenazi Jews in Israel. She combines historical research, her own family's story, and the heartfelt oral history of several other Mizrahis to make We Look Like the Enemy a stunning, unforgettable book.
Rachel Shabi has been published in the Guardian, the London Sunday Times, the English Aljazeera online, Jane's Intelligence Digest, and Salon.com. This is her first book. She lives in Tel Aviv.
