Very disturbing news

Reader comment on item: Recognizing Israel as the Jewish State: Statements, Actions, Analyses

Submitted by Alexandros (United Kingdom), Oct 12, 2013 at 14:46

An Israeli court, just yesterday i think, decided to give freedom to 2,000 Sudanese people in Israel, who were asking for political asylum. Immediately Israeli Jewish extremists, proclaimed against this decision, screaming that Africans are slaves and should go back to Africa. I will not talk about the court's decision, respecting that decision, but the fact that racist hate came from Jews is shocking!

I have written several times, that fanaticism in religion is darkness, there is no doubt, that a religious state, whatever the religion, will end up, to be racist and suppressive, even to it's own citizens. I hope the Israeli people to chose a different path!

Daniel Pipes replies:

I have not seen this report but, yes, there is anger, especially in south Tel Aviv about the illegal immigrants. Let's hope that the government successfully repatriates the economic refugees among them.
