Stand up for Israel’s African refugees

I just signed this petition: Stand up for Israel’s African refugees: Tell Netanyahu to fire the inciters & implement just policies. So should you.

My statement on the matter:

Like many Diaspora Jews I am outraged by the behavior of these Israeli public officials. While I am often at odds with Israeli government policy, the hateful incitement and predatory politics of Yishai, Regev, Dannon and others is absolutely beyond the pale of any acceptable notion of the limits of political discourse. The purportedly Jewish character of the Israeli state is stretched thin when such ugly speech – and uglier violence – breaks out.
