A sad case of the way Arabs continue to be treated in the only democracy in the Middle East.
Tel Aviv – An Israeli man has admitted to killing Monday a Palestinian taxi driver from East Jerusalem, believed to be about 35 years old, police officials said.
The Israeli man, aged 25, told police he committed the murder because the driver ‘was an Arab,’ Israel radio reported.
Hundreds of Jews protested against an Arab family moving into the Naveh Zayit neighborhood in Lod on Saturday, and two demonstrators were taken in for questioning.
reparations for the protest began after residents of the neighborhood discovered that one of their neighbors had signed a contract to sell his home to an Arab family.
While it should be said that all modern societies have their social problems, these are certainly disturbing in the extreme. It’s hard to imagine either of these cases would be tolerated in the Western world.
