WTF?!

So sorry to read that. As of last week I thought it was just Bibi being racist. Surely it’s a small minority, though, I hope?

Just as I read your post, I saw on FB a number of posts from the New Israel Fund, Liberal Judaism (UK) and others deploring the racist violence. At least you’re not alone in the world.

Well, seeing as we have a coallition

of 94 out of 120 MKs, all between right and very extreme right, and there is even one party in the oposition that didn’t join in because they ar even rarther to the right, I’d say, not a very small minority. Of course, the people who actually act with violence are a minority. But a very common remark I’m hearing is: well the violence is wrong, but I know what they mean by it, the foreigners are criminals, they are violent, they have deseases.

Sounds like they’re scared. But didn’t I read that the crime rate is actually lower amongst African refugees than among regular Israelis…?

I'm not sure.

I’ve seen references to several researches, they seemed contradicting but I don’t know. Maybe they measure different things, or over different periods.
Suppose there is really more crime? There may be crime where there is poverty, I suppose.

I think I heard

that the chief police guy in Israel was making that claim.

But to be honest I haven’t been able to follow it that closely so I could be wrong.
