I once attended a trade school, with two Israeli classmates

They did both have kind of a "I'm better than you" attitude toward most of their classmates, possibly founded in the fact that they did display superior intelligence and diligence. They both became very friendly to me when I topped their grades. I wouldn't say they were racist, but they clearly believed that people who demonstrate intelligence and industry are superior to those who don't. That can look a lot like racism -- to those who don't.

In the final analysis, people are individuals, not racial stereotypes. I don't know how "typical" my two friends were -- but I'm reluctant to generalize about how racist "Israelis" are, or to blame them for their horrid government. As an "American," I would be greatly offended if "foreigners" judged me by the actions of Barack Obama and his gang.
