I guess you do not understand. Nothing to me but there has been violence- check the local police reports and local neighbors. some understandable some not. It, as you say, needs to be addressed and the local people of the neighborhood are not less important either. Racism is not just about color or African. The Israeli government needs a form for dealing with such illegal immigration, establishing the eligibility for refugee status or not, in a quick and far fair and just manner. Once this is done, the other problems that come with those in limbo land - homelessness, lack of medical, welfare, education, jobs, status,can be slowly solved. That Israel does not have any policy is the problem. What would you do if your neighbourhood was swamped with thousands of foreigners and changed it's face forever? Racism, right, probably in part, but there are other important social issues involved, and fear, all factors. We saw the same attitude by some sectors to the Russian immigrants and they were Israelis. The government is faced with huge problems here, and we don't live in an easy land. Fear is a huge factor here.
