    you're not the spanish I'm referring to because you are educated and employed

From my perspective it sounds like: "you are not a real arab. You are open-minded, atheist, educated and only half arabic"

So I don't qualify as someone who represents the arabic minority in Israel, so I get treated like an ashkenazi jew. At some point it goes so far that people start making racist jokes about arabs while forgetting that I am in the room because "I don't count".
