" Hitler was right ! Go back to the camps!" shout hard core Israelis at Jewish peace activists

Friday 25-12-09, about 250 demonstrators were walking and drumming down Hanevi'im st. in Jerusalem, as part of a non- violent demonstration against the occupation of Palestinian houses by Israeli settlers in the Palestinian Neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah (in East Jerusalem). These are some of the responses they encountered on the way.

  1. From Jews Sans Frontieres in regards to this video.

    "This is more complicated that it sounds to those not into Israeli sociology. The two Israelis, Jews of Arab origins, identify the protesters as Ashkenazi (Jews of European origin), and clearly intend their words as a slur for Ashkenazis. In Israel, Jews of Arab origins have been systematically discriminated against and oppressed since the beginning of the state. The great success of the Ashkenazi dominated Labor Party was to create a linkage between peace with Palestinians and racism against Jews of Arab origin. This is the foul fruit of that achievement.

    I wonder if the Anti Defamation League will have something to say about it. But I won't hold my breath."
