I guess it depends on how you define black

I guess this may be a manifestation of the Transnational Progressivism USS Clueless like to talk about. Mendela says Iraq is a black nation and Israel is white.

Newsweek: What about the argument that’s being made about the threat of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction and Saddam’s efforts to build a nuclear weapons. . . . .

Mendela … Scott Ritter, a former United Nations arms inspector who is in Baghdad, has said that there is no evidence whatsoever of [development of weapons of] mass destruction [who has not been inspecting for the last four years]. Neither Bush nor [British Prime Minister] Tony Blair has provided any evidence that such weapons exist. But what we know is that Israel has weapons of mass destruction. Nobody talks about that. Why should there be one standard for one country, especially because it is black, and another one for another country, Israel, that is white.

With the Ethiopians (and maybe the Ultra Orthodox), I would think that Israel is more 'black' than Iraq.
