ISRAEL'S BALTIMORE: THE TEL AVIV UPRISING OVER POLICE BRUTALITY

FEELING REBLOGGY

THE U.S. IS NOT ALONE IN CONDONING POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST MINORITIES

Regarding The Israel Race Riots on May 3 - 4 2015



The event that sparked off the wave of protest was a video of two police officers attacking an Ethiopian soldier last week in Holon.

"The race riots engulfing Tel Aviv [May 3 - 4 2015] bear some resemblance to the violence that shook the streets of Baltimore last week.

Israel is quick to show off its Ethiopian Jewish population as an example of the country’s multiculturalism and tolerance. While the country was able to airlift 60,000 Ethiopians to Israel in the 1980s and 1990s, their experience after arrival has been anything but easy. This is because Israel is crisscrossed by a multitude of racial and ethnic fault lines. From overt racism towards Palestinians to the rifts between Jews from Arab countries and those from Europe, Israel is one of the region’s most divided societies."
