The following are two indictments in Jaffa - against Arabs who brutally lynched a Jew until the chair with which he was beaten "dismantled from the power of the blow."
In Bat Yam - against Jews who threatened Arabs "while their behavior provides a reasonable basis for further acts to improve peace." Where has the State Attorney's Office mentioned the term "racist motive" 5 times - and where is 0? The answer is in front of you..

By the way, anyone who reads the indictment in Jaffa cannot know that this is an attack by Arabs against Jews: there are only "defendants", "others" (who helped the defendants) and a "complainant". On the other hand, in Bat Yam the matter is very clear: the complainant is of "Arab origin" and the attack is due to "racist motives towards Arabs due to their national ethnic origin." In Jaffa it was probably Swedes against Norwegians.

When the riots broke out in the cities involved in Israel, Dror Tamir, a resident of Jaffa, equipped himself with a camera and went out to document the riots. After dealings with some of the rioters at the scene, the situation quickly escalated into a brutal assault that also included beatings using chairs and sticks.

"I went there and made sure not to stand still, I kept going," Dror continued. "They realized that I was taking pictures. One of the rioters came out of the camp, followed me and asked in Hebrew, 'What are you taking pictures of here?'. I turned to him and said to him in English, 'We are live on Facebook. "What do you think of the Jewish people?" I will save his answers...
