Race or class?

Now I'm looking at an article by Daphna Baram on one of the refusenik sites. It's about Tali Fahima's incarceration without trial, in Israel, for meeting with a Palestinian militant in Jenin. Daphna Baram suggests that Fahima wouldn't be in such trouble if she was a middle class Ashkenazi Jew, but she's working class and from Morocco. And so she went to jail.
