1. Fire the inspectors!!
Dave ,   Montreal, Canada   (04.30.15)
There is no excuse for an assault of this nature, illegal immigrant or not. This is racial profiling and has no place in Israel. The inspectors might as well have been wearing swasticas! How dare they call themselves Jews with behaviour like that.
2. Israeli officials attaack Ethiopian
Luke Anderson ,   NYC, USA   (04.30.15)
No one trusts what the Israeli govt. says. They lie all the time. They are a very racist and have many anti gentile laws.
The police here leave a lot to be desired ,they are often amateur and ciolent ,and they believe that the public are there in order to serve them ,the police ,rather than the police serve the public. Regrettably ,there are too many bad apples and racist cops.
4. Stand up for your right my dear friends
Dovdevan ,   Ashdod,israel   (04.30.15)
The israeli society is rude as a new immigrant from france who know very well israel since my childood some people are racist , The governement did the same mistakes it made with the misrahim 40 years ago but what is sad is that those who suffered then from racism are racist today so you have to struggle to get your right and get The place you deserve in this country !!

Jerusalem is not like Baltimore, Eritrea or Ethiopia. Is an expensive jewish city and many young ethiopians just come to work here to earn bether salaries but they dont have a big ethiopian community like the israeli - arabs have. shabat shalom

History: Mission "Operation Wings of Eagles"- jews from Yemen were airlifted to Israel in 1949 by PMinister David Ben Gurion. Ethiopian jews came from Sudan in 1984 during Shimon Peres and in 1991 thanks to the Israel Defense Force and the Republican President of U.S. then, George Bush

This should come under the banner, "no good deed, goes unpunished", or "dog bites hand that feeds it", rescued from Africa, they now attack the rescuer.
