Israelis and immigrants demanding the right to stay demonstrate in Tel Aviv

For the last several weeks, the government of Israel and large swaths of its citizenry have embarked upon a merciless crusade of “ethnic cleansing,” the likes of which has not been seen since the Bosnian conflict in the 1990's. The targets of this particular atrocity are not Israel's traditional whipping boy, Palestinian refugees or even Palestinian inmates of what can only be described as the open-air prison of GazaGaza on the West Bank. The victims this time around are illegal African immigrants mainly from South Sudan, Eritrea, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, and other sub-Saharan countries. Even Chinese and Filipino immigrants have been targeted.

At last count, these people numbered around 60,000 souls, or about 0.9 percent of the Israeli population. The Israeli government, media, and citizenry do not refer to them as “illegal immigrants," however, but rather as “infiltrators.”

In Tel Aviv, on April 27, 2012, anti-African immigrant sentiment exploded into arson attacks when white Israeli “demonstrators” firebombed apartment buildings housing African immigrants. One apartment contained a mother and her four children. That was just the beginning.

“Blacks out!” That was the rallying cry of about 1,000 Israelis, also in Tel Aviv, less than a month later, on May 23, 2012. Shouts of “infiltrators get out of our homes,” and “Death to the Sudanese” filled the air as the white mob turned to open assaults and attacks with sticks, bricks, and stones against anybody unfortunate enough to be within striking distance and wearing dark skin.

And, as recently as June 4, 2012, in Jerusalem, yet another white mob set fire to an apartment building filled with Eritrean refugees, injuring several dozen people.

Amazingly, the Israeli government's response has been to support the rioters and their demands. President Netanyahu has himself referred to the refugees as “infiltrators,” and publicly stated that the African immigrants were a direct threat to “the social fabric of society” and the “Jewish and democratic character of the country.”

Authorities have actually begun rounding up immigrants for deportation and have promised severe punishment for any Israelis who might be sympathetic to the Africans and attempt to help them. A 30-foot high fence between Israel and Egypt is under construction to stem the flow of asylum seekers from that direction. And, a new law allows the Israeli government to imprison African asylum seekers – including women and children – for as long as three years without charging them with a crime.

As many as 25,000 illegal immigrants have been slated for deportation. Thousands of others are being herded into open-air detention centers (concentration camps?) for future deportation processing.

Why is this happening – especially in a country which prides itself as being the only democracy in the entire region? And, what is or should be the United States' response to this obvious and blatant affront to its stated goal of upholding human rights worldwide?

The answer to the first question is clear: Pure, unadulterated white supremacist-based racism. Oh...? You doubt that? Okay, then explain why recently thousands of white Russian non-Jewish illegal immigrants were granted work permits while only one out of 4,000 African applicants for the same permits was allowed.

And as to the United States' position? Seems pretty obvious that the United States government is poised to seriously ignore the whole situation. Have you heard or read any of this in the “mainstream” media? On government websites? And, when was the last time President Obama or his campaign mentioned anything about Israel beyond awarding the "Medal of Freedom" to former Israeli Prime Minister (and current President) Shimon Peres?

Do not expect Obama to criticize anything that Israel does during this election season. He is fully aware of the power of the American Israeli Political Action Committee in propagandizing and raising money against any American politician who is even slightly critical of Israel. Ask former President Jimmy CarterJimmy Carter about this and I'm sure he'll give you an earful.

AMERICA'S RACISTS HAVE INFILTRATED AMERICAN POLICE FORCES TO WAGE A RACE WAR AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA

THE BLACK RACE IS AT WAR

Original Post

Mind you this is the same subject that Africana got shut down for posting about.  But they spoke more to the actions of the gov't oppressing the Ethiopians they brought over there during the 1980's airlifts. How they put things in place to obstruct their progress in the society.

  I ain't surprised.  When Israel so-called went to "rescue" Ethiopian Hebrews and brought them back to their homeland....they REFUSED to give them citizenship.  Hey!  The ball is gonna FALL on Israel.  It's a coming.  And now they are REALLY showing WHO they are.  And it will be a matter of time when Arab Spring is gonna spring over there and explode.  Watch.   See they think America is gonna protect them always....but!  They are behaving like spoiled little brats and they will finally be called out internationally...cuz they are sooooo racist, it ain't even funny. Folks are starting to say...."who gives a fock about Israel...I'm just trying to survive in my own country."  In a minute it's gonna be....let the chips fall where they may.  And Israel gonna find itself....all by itself....surrounded by folks who hate them and are willing to die to destroy their "land" site once again.  But!

I'm glad you reminded me of that.  I do remember reading about complaints the Ethiopians had AFTER they actually were "relocated" to Israel.  (I still believe that there were ulterior motives in Israel doing this in the first place).  My best guess:

 

a.  To get their hands on ancient text in possession of Ethiopian priests

b.  Cheap labor

c.  A population that can be exploited and mistreated without consequence

===========================================

 

You know .... these people (who are almost always Black journalists, at that) are REALLY starting to get on my LAST nerve with this constant ... "What should/is the United States/President Obama gonna do about (insert personal grievance here)??" crap!! 

 

The United States nor President Obama is - nor should be - the "world police" and be trying to "FIX" other people's/country's problems .... when we have PLENTY enough of our own, thank you!! 

 

The majority of them know little to nothing about foreign policy or affairs in the first place (hell, most don't understand the real deal of DOMESTIC policy either, for that matter!!) ... enough to be trying to insert action on our part into situations or problems that are NONE of our business .... and do not directly concern or affect us.

 

Yes, Israel is wrong for what they're doing to Africans ... and yes, Africans are getting the raw end of the deal in Israel.  We get the "raw deal" WHEREVER we are ... by whoever wants to dish it out to us!!  What's happening to African people in Israel ain't nothing new!

 

But criticizing the President for it is ridiculous.  And politically naive and immature. 

 

What should the United States response to this be??  Not a damn thing.  The President has MUCH bigger fish to fry.  Including "immigration/deportation" issues that we need to be dealing with right here in the good ol' USA.

 

Now .... why couldn't the author of this piece write about THAT, I wonder?? 

The POTUS may not have anything to say about it, (though he should have a personal opinion considering his family is Lua and Kenyan) but myself as a person of African descent oh I'm going to have an opinion about how others treat other people of African descent. You best believe that.

 One of the things I like about you my sista...you are a thinking WOMAN  I'll go for "a" for $1 million. Cuz b and c.....well...they can get that HERE!  However, getting their grimmy little hands on documents to PROVE their religious entitlement.  That's the ticket to it all.  And I guess they are pissed off cuz those priests GUARD those documents like it's secrets to how make a nucelar bomb.    There is a man who spends his entire life guarding those documents 24/7.  I wonder why?  Cuz if you believe those so-called sacred documents[personally I don't] it gives  leverage to Jews being "chosen/God's selected children and having those ancient documents would substantiate that.  But!  Since black hebrews[the original jews] STILL have it....I think that right there is/was their ONLY motivation to airlifting Ethiopian Hebrews from harm in Ethiopia....had it been let's say Somalia or Tanzania it would have been a whole 'nother ball game.  But!  Those crafty jews want something and that is why they REFUSE to give Ethiopian i.e. black hebrews their citizenship in Israel until they get it or not.  Hell...you can go to America and live here and few years, take the test and get citizenship...so why does Israel think they are any different? Cuz they BELIEVE the lie....they believe all that craps that says they are "better."  And as long as they continue to think that and continue to do underminded and inhumane things to people not Jewish[cuz of a man-made lie]....that hammer is gonna continue bustin' down on their azzes.  Big time.  That's why it is soooooooooooooo important to KNOW world history.  Not that propaganda crap to sway opinion....but!  Actual events that have shaped us as human beings.  Now...I'm not gonna minimize anyone's religious or spiritual beliefs...cuz that's not my calll....believe whatever turns you on....but!  Be realistic about the TRUTH and NOT that fantasy tale crap hidden behind the cloth of God to justify racism and slavery...know the REAL truth.  Cuz everybody's got a story. But if you are aware of history....you will know that it is all about POWER and status.  And that's what those Israelites want.  And getting those documents will elevate their so-called position of power even more.  Especially where they are suspiciously located.   But!
