The fact that there are crazy Israelis is clear. But those who started to be violent were arrested whenever the police could catch them. This is the big difference, and why your kristalnaught comparison is baseless. The Israeli public does not support this sort of racism. I hope that the Likud and other extremist parties do not manage to play on our citizens' fears to distract the voters from the fact that the 'leaders' who incited this don't really represent us, our conscience or our best interest. I hope these 'leaders' are put into jail, where they belong.
