I'm always surprised that people call Israel racist. Are you saying that the light-skinned Jews from Europe, the black Jews from Ethiopia, and the brown-skinned Jews from Arab countries like Iraq are all part of a single race?

No they are not, but then try to google "ethiopian jews" and "racism".
You'll be unpleasantly surprised.


My wife knows of a Jew who converted. Before he converted, he was a Muslim Arab. What was his race before he converted? What is it now?

We use "racism" for lack of a better word when we mean "prejudice because of ethnicity". The emotions involved are pretty much the same, and the motives is as despicable.
