Racism In The Holy Land

                  “Watch the video the New York Times didn't Want You to See” — (Max) Blumenthal

I would first like to take this opportunity to say kudos to the creators of this film David Sheen and Max Blumenthal; thank you for exposing this horrific situation and pushing your viewers to take a stand against this injustice in Israel the birthplace of Jesus Christ.

This video is very taxing to watch, but I believe it is essential to view to fully understand the current tragedy that is occurring. The war that has been waged on the Sudanese and all Africans in Israel is horrific. I do not understand why the hatred is at this point. It is horrifically racist and just plain wrong.

While all parts of this film are emotionally taxing to view, I was particularly struck when the individuals were berating an African woman holding a baby in a grocery store. It is clearly unsafe for the African individuals to be in Israel. It rattles the very being of my soul that this behavior is tolerated. It is repulsive that the Israeli government is supporting and frankly encouraging this behavior.

The way the African individuals are being held in deplorable conditions is inhumane. Something has to be done. This level of mistreatment and racism has to stop. I am very curious to know if the same treatment would be bestowed upon Irish Catholics (who are white) immigrating to Israel? Somehow I  don’t think they would be welcomed with such hatred. Or a repeat of holocaust on the Israelis anywhere in world wouldn't be strongly condemned worldwide?
