Race Matters – Anti African Activism in Israel

Made by David Sheen and Max Blumenthal, this video was solicited by the New York Times but never shown. In fact a number of other sites had the video sumbitted to them and they rejected it as well. according to Mr Blumenthal. It was finally published on The Nation.

I find this video disturbing on a number of levels.

Firstly, that the hatred shown by many of the individuals shown is not just a rarity. These rallies testify to this.

Secondly, whilst this could be narrowed down the racism of some “crackpot Zionists”, the video clearly shows the demonisation is fully supported by members of government!

Given the very reason why the state of Israel was formed in the first place was to prevent wide spread racism, xenophobia or potential genocide, it seems that many have such a short memory. No wonder some laugh at the concept of Israel as a poster child of democracy.
