Anonymous said: there's really no systematic or much social racism against black asylum seekers in israel, don't spread lies. try going for yourself and seeing instead.
In July 2012, Hospital director Gaby Barabash denies Eritreans entry into medical facility to see their ill family members. Asylum seekers were then duped into believing they were appointed separate facilities, only to be setup, ambushed and detained by Israel police.
Israeli politician Michael Ben-Ari calls for ethnic eradication of asylum seekers stating the following in a hate rally orchestrated by him and attended by hundreds - “The people demand the expulsion of the infiltrators. We have come to expunge the darkness.”and praised the mayor of Eilat for his alleged harsh treatment of Africans. stating he is “doing a great job with the Africans there. I only wish we did the same here in Tel Aviv. He doesn’t allow them to attendschools, he restricts their movements, he knows what to do.” (x)
Another hate rally incited by political personality May Golan, in which she is proud of her racism and states that Eritrean and South Sudanese asylum seekers are degenerates who she is afraid will rape and bludgeon her, though police reports continue to prove that even while homeless and unemployed, asylum seekers are much less likely to commit violent offenses than the Israeli settlers.
Last March, municipal inspectors in the town of Huldai poured bleach into meals and drinks of several eateries owned by asylum seekers, so they could purposefully sabotage them, have them fail inspections and close down their businesses. And when that didn’t deter the efforts of entrepreneurship amongst the migrants, they stopped issuing work permits to Eritreans altogether.
Architect Arnon Sofer (who unsurprisingly enough designed the apartheid wall against Gaza) orchestrated a similar idea on the edge of the Sinai to deter asylum seekers from entering. Not satisfied however with the presence of them within fabricated Israeli borders, he also designed a holding cell with no heat, or comfortable bedding to unlawfully detain East African migrants and called it.. a concentration camp.
May of 2012, over 1000 Israelis in Tel Aviv rioted the streets, engaging in assault, harassment and looting, burning and chanting hateful and racist slurs in neighborhoods with a large migrant population.
Here’s my personal favorite- Israeli lawmaker and former IDF spokesperson Miri Regev compares Eritrean and South Sudanese asylum seekers to cancer, but then retracts her statements and apologizes to cancer patients for comparing them to Africans.
Orthodox rabbis release edicts forbidding landlords from renting living spacesto East African asylum seekers. In the same link, it also details pest control companies in Tel Aviv using the xenophobia and antiblackness waged against the migrants to their advantage by shelling out samples of their product and stating that it can be used against Africans. (x).
I could keep going. I have well over 100 links, articles and videos not unlike this one reinforcing the rampant racism that permeates your settler society, but I have better things to do than go back and forth with a delusional and dishonest coward like yourself.
Despite the existence of video evidence clearly showing Seattle, Washington cop Garth Haynes stomping on the head of a handcuffed man during a 2010 ordeal, the officer was formally cleared of all misconduct this week.
Upon advisement of the Seattle City Attorney’s Office, the local police department’s interim chief, Harry Bailey, said on Tuesday that Haynes has been exonerated of his involvement in the Dec. 2010 incident.
Israeli settlers - who live illegally on Palestinian land and shouldn’t be there in the first place - regularly destroy and uproot olive trees belonging to Palestinians, often striking at night to go unnoticed.
Olive trees are a livelihood for many families, and a key component of the Palestinian economy. That’s how they are meant to survive.
I saved the worst for last. Israeli soldiers escort Israeli settlers to attack Palestinians then stand by and watch, if not join in too.

But for all the change revealed, the devotional also exposed the limits of how far most whites would go. The devotional attached the historical construction of the white Jesus to extremists: Klan members and German Nazis. It distanced everyday people from the production, dissemination and consumption of white Jesus figures. It failed to mention that Sunday school teachers, popular preachers, Hollywood directors, and children’s authors had done far more than the Klan or Nazis to populate the world with white Jesus images. McDowell did not mention that his friend Billy Graham or artists he knew or books that he bought or churches that he attended or college Christian fellowships that he had helped to form were instrumental in teaching the world to worship a white Jesus.
Even more, the devotional called for no action beyond prayer and a personal change of heart. It made no reference to righting the wrongs of the racist past or battling the racial discrimination of the present. As the leading sociologist of racial segregation in churches, Michael Emerson, has pointed out, the white evangelical emphasis on individualism and emotionalism has severely limited churches’ capacity to engage with social and racial problems. Through historical misdirection and by spiritualizing social problems, the devotional gave white evangelicals absolution without any requirement to take action.

Syphilis Study Still Provokes Disbelief, Sadness
July 25, 2002 —Thirty years ago today, the Washington Evening Star newspaper ran this headline on its front page: “Syphilis Patients Died Untreated.” With those words, one of America’s most notorious medical studies, the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, became public.
"For 40 years, the U.S. Public Health Service has conducted a study in which human guinea pigs, not given proper treatment, have died of syphilis and its side effects," Associated Press reporter Jean Heller wrote on July 25, 1972. "The study was conducted to determine from autopsies what the disease does to the human body." [Read more and listen to NPR report.]
