African Refugees Under Attack In Israel


In recent weeks Israeli nationalists have marched through Tel Aviv in protest against the High Court decision in late September that the ‘open residential facility’, Holot, should be closed. The protestors have also attacked African-owned businesses.


This facility is situated in a remote part of the Negev desert and is an ‘open-air’ facility where undocumented African migrants can be held without trial for up to a year. But those protesting against the court’s ruling, who come from across the spectrum of Israeli politics, object to the decision believing that ‘Giving up on Holot would be a stage of capitulation; the inevitable result would be the assimilation of the infiltrators into Israel society’.
