This is proof that demagoguery, racism and hatred exists in every corner of our world…….even Israel, where demonizing migrants and refugees is the latest trend.
An estimated 1000 protesters took to the streets in Tel-Aviv, to demand the deportation of African migrants and asylum seekers. The protest turned incredibly violent as angry mobs of protesters beat Africans in the streets, reportedly beat up a mother and a baby, pulled a kid off from a bicycle and kicked him in the head and even stopped buses in order to check for any possible African migrant workers on board.
All this whilst the Israeli police stood and watched apparently.They did make arrests later, mostly comprising of minors.
Absolutely despicable actions.
The riots were sparked by an apparent incident where a young Israeli woman was raped by Eritrean migrants.
The recent influx of tens of thousands of refugees, has witnessed the rise in racial tensions and intolerance, with many accusing the black community of committing crimes, stealing jobs and undermining the identity of the Jewish state.
Israeli PM Netanyahu stated that the presence of these migrants ‘threatens Israel’s social fabric.’
The predominately black neighbourhood of Hatikva was ransacked by groups of nationalist protesters who had attended a demonstration on Wednesday night against illegal African migrants.
The protesters claim the Africans are responsible for a rise in crime, bearing signs saying “This is not Africa” and “Stop talking, start expelling”.
“Blacks out!” shouted demonstrators in the crowd, while others yelled “Send the Sudanese back to Sudan”, as other protesters derided the “bleeding-heart leftists” working to help them.
The mob set cans of rubbish on fire, smashed the windows of shops owned by Eritrean migrants and beat up Africans walking through the streets.
TJ, a 29-year-old migrant from Nigeria, watched the violent chaos from his rooftop having been chased and pelted with rocks when he attempted to leave his house.
“There were protesters everywhere smashing shop and car windows,” he said. “A group of about 10 or 15 boys stopped one black kid cycling on his bike. They pulled him off and were punching and kicking him in his head. The police just stood and watched until it got really out of control.”
Other witnesses described a gang assaulting a mother carrying a young baby so violently that she was forced to drop her child. Others stopped shuttle buses to search for migrant workers among their passengers.
The Israeli police confirmed they had arrested 17 suspects involved in “a protest against illegal African immigrants”. Extra police units were positioned to prevent further violence in the area last night.
Peace Now, an Israeli human rights organisation, is calling for an investigation into whether the speakers at Wednesday night’s rally, including Knesset ministers Miri Regev, Danny Danon, Yari Levin and Michael Ben-Ari, are guilty of incitement.
During her address, Ms Regev described illegal immigrants as a “cancer in our society”.
Anyone else notice that instead of evolving as human beings, we are doing quite the opposite: devolving.
I could say alot here, I really could, like how the angry mobs of fascist Israelis ( select few) should really google their own political history and learn how many Jews fled to other nations to escape racism, hatred, persecution and genocide.Anyone remember Kristallnacht?
But I will not say anything at all.
