Aziz´s Latest: My Brother´s Kippah

The great 19th century German writer Heinrich Heine onced remarked that his (regrettable) conversion from Judaism to Christianity was an ‘entry ticket to Western civilization.’ Aziz Abu Sarah, Palestinian writer and alternative tour guide, has discovered that donning on a Kippah can be his entry ticket to some fobidden zones in the West Bank (apparently Jews and Arabs do look alike). Have a read.

  1. He’s passing as Mizrahim (Oriental Jew) not Ashkenazi (European) which he could never pass as.

    One wonders how many Mizrahim mingle among settlers and what their status would be.
