1. Merzel is right
Natan ,   Tel Aviv   (12.31.12)
Politicians exist to sit in office. They don't act unless they see that what they are doing is ruinining their chances of staying in office. The PEOPLE demand a nation for Jews - not African immigrants (except Ethiopian Jews). Don't like it - take your liberal sensitivity and move to Paris. Oh yeah - you'll be next to African criminals there as well.
2. Sick and racist behaviour
Jay Abouaf ,   Jaffa Israel   (12.31.12)
Our former President is in prison for rape. This is an excuse to releas kneejerk racism The immigrants are no greater a threat than Israelis. Bad Jews
3. The CRIME was perpetrated by ONE african, NOT all of them.
Big Mouth ,   On the face   (12.31.12)
Some africans are MORE honest than ben-ari-gvir-marzuk. So the whole Africa should NOT be blamed 4 the CRIME of 1 african.
4. The fence is finished
Judah ,   Golan Heights,ISRAEL   (12.31.12)
So there should be no more African infiltrators sneaking into Israel. Now we need to deport the tens of thousands who arrived here before the fence was built.
5. Stringent Securities
Zechariah   (12.31.12)
All SickoCriminals need to be watched Africans maybe more but also Israeli Jewish Crims .The refugees from Africa need assessment for two Characteristics Genuine Refugess Geniunely Safe People.A stringent thorough ruthless investigation and screening with neuroscience technology.
6. Don't Make America's Mistake
David ,   Wilkes-Barre, USA   (12.31.12)
Israel, do not make the same mistake as America. The open borders have allowed criminals and freeloaders from all over Central America and South America into the US. The country is overrun by illegals who take from the government without paying taxes and even get benefits that American-born people cannot get like low tuitions to colleges. Our signs are all in Spanish and you can't go to a store where the employees speak in English anymore. Israel, please deport these people as soon as you can before they overrun the country.
7. To # 2 get your head straight
David ,   Montreal,Canada   (12.31.12)
There are laws for everyone. For infiltrators or immigrants that breaks the laws, they should be heavily punished. In fact they should be shiped back . I'm sure if that was your mother you would go for capital punishment.
8. #2 - Screw you...your days here are numbered.
9. Get Rid of the Filth!
Cheryl ,   Chicago, IL   (12.31.12)
Don't let another second pass by where they can taint our Land and our people anymore.
10. refugees
Mike ,   Uk   (12.31.12)
This is really ridiculous. Jews don't rape?
11. 2#
PersianJew ,   Holon   (12.31.12)
Really? Jews are just as likely to rape as an African? you have never looked at any statistic regarding sexual violence in your entire life, have you Jay ?
12. it isn't about skin color, they also despise Russian whites
observer ,   Egypt   (12.31.12)
13. Send them back
michael Pielet ,   israel   (12.31.12)
Send all Africans to north Tel Aviv, where they belong.
14. Just TRUST and VOTE for ''FAR RIGHT ''
RJ USA ,   USA   (12.31.12)
Most of the commentators who say "it's only one African" or, "Jews don't commit crime?" miss the point (although the crime and rape that Jews commit is 1/1,000,000 of what the Africans commit) - THESE AFRICANS HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE IN ISRAEL. NO RIGHT. THEY ARE NOT CITIZENS. ISRAEL IS NOT REQUIRED TO ALLOW THEM TO LIVE IN ITS TERRITORY. ISRAEL IS A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY. KICK THEM OUT NOW.
16. Setup an african refugee camp alongside
jason white ,   afula,israel   (12.31.12)
bibis house. Why should we take them in? Did anyone take in Jews during the Holocaust? I hope they built the fence with an exit. Send them back now!
17. they came illegaly from Egept
B. ,   Israel   (12.31.12)
and must be returned there. Egept is no treat to them.
18. Ben Ari tore up the New Testament
sonia ,   paris france   (12.31.12)
These racists are being driven on by a racist Christophobe. A man who tore up an important teaching that urges Jews to love thy fellow human beings as thyself, not just thy fellow Jew.
19. # 2
Birdi ,   Israel   (12.31.12)
Your post is a load of bunk. You really dont know what you are talking about.
20. shame
Dov ,   USA   (12.31.12)
I'm glad it was only a few dozen hateful people who came out to protest. My parents survived the Holocaust. These protests invoke the memory. Please we don't need isolation.
21. People on this thread are awful
Sol ,   America   (01.01.13)
Calling them filth? Saying they have no right to be in Israel? Question: How many of you had grandparents or parents who were forced to flee for their lives? I'm guessing most. This is just disgusting! These are PEOPLE fleeing from, for the most part, GENOCIDE. Remember that? We had one of those too, in case you forgot. Security measures are necessary to keep them from just getting in and staying illegally, but at the same time you can't turn down people who have nowhere else to go. It isn't right.
22. Remember how it used to be?
moshe ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (01.01.13)
I find it interesting that we of all people show such prominent affinity towards racism and nationalistic bias. Do not misinterpret what I am arguing; the son of a b.... who did this is a monster who deserves a severe punishment, but his being an African immigrant has nothing to do with his actions. Generalizing crimes of the few to an entire nationality, race etc. is a definition of racism in the worst sense of this word. The same methodology what was used tonight by Ben Ari et. al. tonight was used by the Nazis in WW2 and by so many before them as well. Have we not learned anything from our history? All of you who support tonight's actions, let me ask you a question: Are you upset when people label "jews" with negative stereotypes? Yes? Then you should think twice before labeling the entire African community of South Tel Aviv as a bunch of thieves, rapists and murderers.
23. Living in S. Tel Aviv
Lorne ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (01.01.13)
I live in South Tel Aviv and work with a couple of guys from Eritrea in a restaurant. They are brothers-in-law who are here because they did not want to be in the Eritrean Army which requires a 20 year commitment. They send most of their money back to their families. Just so you know who you're demanding be deported.
24. africuns are not refugees, they are cheap labor, so shame on
Moshe ,   Usa   (01.01.13)
Israel for letting them in ! Pay Jews more & then you will enjoy a better society.
25. #18
Moses   (01.01.13)
You mean the same text the crusaders used? Oh yeah, those guys really showed love for their fellow man. Ask the Muslims and Jews how nice the good old Catholic French crusaders were. Oh wait, I misread your comment. You wrote " A man who tore up an important teaching that urges JEWS, etc...". Does that mean if the person is not Jewish they don't have to love fellow man? Ergo the crusaders committed no sin? Please don't proselytize Sonia. You want to say what's going on is racist, fine. You have a right to an opinion like that. Going on about "Christophobe" considering all the crap Christians have done to Jews is down right disgusting. We've not killed Christians in pogroms, ever. It's nice you've all decided to become civilized after the fact you killed so many Jews and now demand those civilized rules on us, coincidentally when we have power and a country. Too bad when we had no country or power the rules of civility did not need to apply to your kingdoms. How many Jewish lives would have been sparred if you could have abided by what you preach today? For the record, tearing up any book is abhorrent, but this article has ZERO to do with that. The only relation is that the politician in this article did that, but it is rather unrelated to this story, but does fit nicely with an old Catholic agenda to portray Jews as Jesus haters. Trust me, most of us could care less about Jesus. We neither hate nor certainly love the guy. It's high time Christians like yourself mature and get on with your own religion, while stopping to meddle with a far more ancient religion, that really could care less for your's. Learn your (emphasis on your) saviors words in peace, but leave us alone. Christians like you give a rotten name to the majority of decent and tolerant ones that I've had the pleasure of knowing and befriending over the years.
26. Israel
Sam ,   Israel   (01.01.13)
sorry but the Israeli government focuses on our enemies surrounding us. This has always been our challenge. The thing is the government is not experienced to deal with internal issues except the extreme ones. The government needs to set up a special internal task force or else everything will go under the table. Remember the tents around the country two years ago - all the tents and nothing happened! If anything housing price increased higher!!!
27. The animal farm
Ferdinand ,   France & Israel   (01.01.13)
Reading the talkbacks reminds me of the end of The animal farm, where it's no longer possible to tell the pigs from the humans. In the same way, I see no difference between most comnents here about Africans and what Germans said about Jews in the 1930s. How on earth did we end up here? :-(
28. #21 Oh stop trying to look politically correct
Shalom ,   Israel   (01.01.13)
The left's dillusional way of thinking has cost more Israeli lives then anything else. The left's dillusional way of thinking will also eventualy lead to assimilation, birth growth decline, migrant problem etc until it is to late and nuclear Iran is ready ;)
29. #23 Lorne
Ron M ,   Tel aviv   (01.01.13)
I also live in south Tel Aviv and frankly I'm not moved by your sympathy story. My area has become a dump because of people stealing into my country. They are here illegally, I've had enough - let them go work in Egypt or Eritrea, not at my expense. I pay taxes. I have frikkin rights too. I'm not here to be subjected to crime so you can feel like a humanitarian, adopt and sponsor them if you want, until then you're all talk. Take care.
30. It's not good for the country when money leaves the country
