    There are a lot of people here in Britain that look a bit like him, and I’m not even talking about those of foreign descent. He could pass for being George Harrison’s son.

      You must be blind or terribly ignorant.

      The average Arab from the Near East (Lebanon, Syria, excluding the gulf) looks like this man. Have you even seen Lebanese people? They’re no lighter or darker than him.

    Arab looking Jew also face racism and discrimination
    from their white looking counterparts in Israel.

    • isaacder3i says:

      No we don’t face discrimination, thats a myth made up by anti-zionists.

      Oded Fehr is ashkenazi, which is his religious rite, nothing more. Ashkenazi jews are middle eastern according to genetic studies.

      He looks levantine, and he could pass as Iraqi Jewish, because he is the same race. He just was born into ashkenazi judaism.
