When Israeliborns ask where I’m from ‘b’makor’ there are usually a few follow up questions that I get after I answer I’m from New York. Por example:
- Ahhh, so you lived/you have been to Brooklyn?!
- Are there a lot of Arabs there?
- Have you been to Harlem? Is it really scary?
I wonder if you could analyze that and decide what the undertones mean.
