Does This Remind You of Anything?

Violence against African immigrants to Israel seems to be on the rise in the entity, as hateful headlines against foreign individuals continue to dominate headlines in Israeli media. Sentiments against African migrants reached their peak on Wednesday after some 1,000 people in southern Tel Aviv staged a violent demonstration against the rising number of Africans moving into the area. The demonstrators armed with sticks and stones attacked African-run shops and those serving African customers, and smashed up a car with two African men on board. They also shouted racist slogans, including “Blacks out!” and “Infiltrators, get out of our homes.”

This is my favorite part of the story:

“The infiltrators are a cancer in our body,” Likud MP Miri Regev told the crowd, as fellow MP Danny Danon shouted, “The infiltrators must be expelled from Israel! Expulsion now!”

Where have we heard about this sort of behavior before? Hmmm…Hmmm…Hmmm…

You always become what you hate.
