Race riots in Tel Aviv

It is terrifying to read about the violent race riots last night in Tel Aviv against African refugees & asylum seekers. A rabid mob of over 1,000 Israelis marched into the neighborhoods where most African migrants live smashing windows, looting & vandalizing shops, setting fires, attacking Africans, & chanting “Blacks out!”, “The people want the Africans to be burned”, & calling for imprisonment & expulsion of Africans from Israel. Much of this was incited by government officials, including a Knesset member who called the migrants “a cancer in our body”. This race riot is more than the kind of attacks going on in Arizona & Alabama, US (although it’s exactly where those policies are headed). This chilling event is completely in sync with Zionist racial policies, with apartheid & ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians. If it reminds you of pogroms against Jews, that’s because Zionism is completely in sync with that odious history. It cannot be said enough that Israel, a Jewish state built at the expense of the Palestinians is not a solution to anti-semitism. It is a death trap for Jews. And those who want a planet without racism & anti-semitism where people live in harmony & peace will make no concessions to Zionism--no matter how many crocodile tears they cry about anti-semitism. Take a stand against Israeli apartheid against Palestinians & against African refugees by boycotting all Israeli products (barcode 729).  (Photo by
