"The African-Filipino Occupation"

Very much in the fashion of other democratic states, some Israelis have decided to take up the cause against social ills such as unemployment, crime and disease. How do they plan to do it? Not by addressing the realities of Occupied Palestine and a bloated security regime, making schools and hospitals more accessible for Israelis and Palestinians or instituting government reform for jobs and the economy. No, of course not. The solution these Israelis have decided upon? Attacking African and Filipino refugees, immigrants to Israel, as well as Israeli-born citizens, and demanding these ‘infiltrators’ be kicked out of the country. The video, above, is the work of Israeli journalist David Sheen–Sophia Azeb.
