A few weeks ago Sir Roy Trotman set off a wild debate in the country with his ‘Egyptian Jew’ comment directed at Jacob Hassid, the CEO of Diamond International (DI). The unnecessary taut served to bring to the fore the latent racial tension which continues to seethe below the surface of Barbados society. I
n response to the comment by Sir Roy the CEO of DI raised the ‘fearing for the limb of he and family’. Bear in mind Barbados has demonstrated that it is one of the most tolerant – some say docile – countries in the world.
After watching the following videos of Jews openly and vehemently demonstrating against immigrants, particularly African, one is left to wonder.
There is also the other concern conveyed in videos which leaves one to wonder if Israel will ever be able to tolerate an agreement with the Palestinians given the unyielding position of Israelis – some say Zionist – to those deem to be from the ‘outside’.
