The Jerusalem Post spoke
2 weeks ago about racism directed at blacks in Israel. Something most important to consider is that in some cases, there were likely Muslims who committed the offenses:
In 2005, another driver at Mount Scopus refused to let an Ethiopian security guard enter the bus, saying, “Hey, cushi [a pejorative term for blacks], you’re nothing, who put you here?” The abuse directed at Ethiopians by bus drivers crosses ethnic and religious lines. The bus driver accused in the Beersheba incident is a Beduin and one of the bus drivers at Mount Scopus was an Arab. This points to a wide pattern of acceptance of racist attacks on the public and security workers. The list of incidents is longer than presented here and it can be assumed that many other incidents go unreported because the victims either do not know the verbal attacks could result in legal actions against the perpetrators or choose not to speak up.
I have a sad feeling even some leftists in this country are willing to use that kind of hostility against blacks in this country, and probably even hate Yitzhak Shamir for his help in bringing them here. It's something that definitely needs to be dealt with.
