Anti-Africans Protest Hits Israeli Supreme Court
when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to prove him with hard questions—1 Kings 10:1

I didn't choose the worst texts. Those seemed taken from a Hebrew textbook on Nazism, and probably were. I skipped the "They rape our daughters" tirade.
These texts were not said by the wives of Goebbels and Hitler complaining about their kosher-eating neighbors, but by Jewish denizens of Tel Aviv at the Supreme Court in Jerusalem protesting against Africans. They don't protest against Romanian, Turkish or Thai foreign workers. The issue is their skin color.
Proving that the protesters' assessment that the Justices favor the Africans was not correct, they chose Christmas to deal with the petition against African refugees. Many of the latter are Christians.
None of the Justices was hurt. To balance the image in the best of American media tradition, let me remind that recently the Justices were publicly called corrupt by a senior member of Netanyahu's party, Moshe Feiglin, who run twice against the Prime Minister to lead the Likud Party (see Likud Leader: Israeli Courts Corrupted).
Israeli Violence, African Victims
After the Law for the Avoidance of Infiltrations was declared illegitimate and annulled a few months ago, the Holot detention center was opened. Illegal workers detained are now placed there and forced to appear three times during the day and to sleep in it. In protests, the innocent men jailed there started a walk towards Jerusalem which provided the image below. Shortly after they started their peaceful protest they were jailed, unlike those who attack African workers in Tel Aviv.
In The Red Lily, Anatole France wrote in 1894: "In its majestic equality the law forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, beg in the streets and steal loaves of bread."
Instead of reviewing the events related to Israeli violence towards African workers in recent years, I attached to the image above links to my main articles on the topic. This is more effective due to the accumulative effect of their quantity.
The core issue is that Israel wants them since Israelis don't want to work in certain areas (gardening, food preparation, construction) and Palestinians are increasingly denied access to these jobs. African workers are cheaper than Thais, Nepalis, Filipinos, Romanians, and Turks brought to Israel through specialized agencies.
Thus, they are allowed to work as long as they are invisible. At the moment they want to send their children to a kindergarten or visit Tel Aviv's beaches on the weekend, they become undesirable.
"Come on, why are you quoting hysterical racist women and extrapolating to the entire society?" A few readers may be thinking along this line right now. Luckily, in September I took a snapshot of the most serious Israeli newspaper headline. It read "Made in the Land [Israel]: 'Africans as the Black Death.'" It is reproduced below.
Easy Question, Racist Answer
The subtitle of this article describes the African Queen of Sheba arriving at Jerusalem and asking Solomon hard questions.
Delicate Israeli hearts may consider her behavior disgraceful to the extent of justifying her being sent to jail.
PM Netanyahu, allow me to ask you a very easy question. I know the answer; yet, I will ask it. To avoid wasting your invaluable time, I will mention just two occurrences of the issue in the Mosaic Law; yet, many more are available. Did you ever heard the following?
Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. Exodus 22:21
Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in his land. Deuteronomy 23:7

* Israel's Supreme Court of Justice usually operates as the highest appellate court in the country, but it features also a special operational mode as a court of first instance, called in Hebrew bagatz (acronym for High Court for Justice, not to be confounded with the formal name of the court: The High Court). In this instance, everybody under the jurisdiction of the Court can initiate a process against the State of Israel if he feels one of his rights has been legitimately oppressed by the State; this is the result of Israel lacking a Constitution and formal recognition of Human Rights.
