The Video The New York Times Didn’t Want You To See

(Max) Blumenthal explained how The New York Times commissioned the 11-minute video, but after the paper’s editors saw it, refused to publish it:

“I was asked to submit something by The New York Times op docs, a new section on the website that published short video documentaries. I am known for short video documentaries about the right wing in the US, and extremism in Israel. They solicited a video from me, and when I didn’t produce it in time, they called me for it, saying they wanted it. So I sent them a video I produced with my colleague, David Sheen, an Israeli journalist who is covering the situation of non-Jewish Africans in Israel more extensively than any journalist in the world. We put together some shocking footage of pogroms against African communities in Tel Aviv, and interviews with human rights activists. I thought it was a well-done documentary about a situation very few Americans were familiar with. We included analysis. We tailored it to their style, and of course it was rejected without an explanation after being solicited. I sent it to some other major websites and they have not even responded to me, when they had often solicited articles from me in the past. Blumenthal, author of the bestselling and widely promoted 2009 book Republican Gomorrah, also spoke about the difficulty he has had getting any mainstream media attention for his new book Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel. Just like this video, Blumenthal’s new book offers an unflinching look at the racist reality of Israel that America’s establishment media simply does not have the guts to confront.” ~ Max Blumenthal

  1. These people have the right to be racists? well, so do we europeans, so don’t return here, you know the consequences.

  2. I’m not defending Israel, most Jews are evil. However, I’m not going to trust someone spreading propaganda about the right in the US. If the Africans are coming in illegally, that is a crime.Your emotions don’t make the laws, the country does. If someone went into my home and decided to stay, I’d kick their ass out. The feminization of society is real and will end society as you know it.

    • In total agreement but the orthodox Jewish that live outside of is-ra-al used to come out in new York in their thousands saying they haven’t been told to go back by God as it was God who scattered them all over the world as they were sacrificing babies and animals in their temple and every turn they took was a slap in the face of God.. the 12 tribes are only two in what I still call Palestine as it was called since the Greek times 7000 years ago and some of the best scholars admit how is-ra-al was put into the bible is a mystery as the 12 tribe’s were judeans or nazarenes etc. That land was always called Palestine up on till 1974 by the United nations. And look at the way they treat them the Palestinians.. God’s chosen people?? Not any God I’ll want to meet or follow. Killing babies blowing up massive apartment blocks killing hundreds saying the Gaza residents are hiding a killer so the whole block has to come down. Zionists are evil using superior weapons to bomb Iraq Iran Syria as the zionists want what was called the greater is-ra-al project to come about.. look it up they want Lebanon part of Saudi Arabia Egypt Syria to be all greater is-ra-al. The Levant was the name of the land that they now want and they need to build a third temple and that will bring in the anti christ they have the priest’s ready for the building of a new Solomon’s temple who jesus said was used as a satanic building and not God’s church. Tax collectors markets for making money and on certain days used as a temple for sacrificing children to baal. The Euphrates river has dried up and that was also prophesied as the start of the end times..

  3. Here is the thing… Who the fuck gave the Israelis the right to own Palestine anyways? It wasn’t theirs to take in the first place!!!


  5. Wow, such hatred. Now I see why the Jews are almost universally hated themselves. THEY SUCK!! They’re so big on their Jewish state, why don’t they call all their Jewish brothers and sisters back home from the U.S. We don’t want them, their arrogance, greed or hatred here!! Makes you wonder how much better off the planet would be without the Jews. Consumed with greed and hatred, what a way to live your life.

    • Or the Ethiopian Jews who are one of the original tribes of Jewish who God scattered over the world and told them not to come back.. it was always called Palestine from Egyptian Greek times thousands of years ago.. the United nations in 1974 I’m sure gave the Jews the land and the name they wanted to call that land.. the u.n corrupt as a bag of snakes

    • Dude, you can’t bash hate and then go on and hate. You sound just like the assholes in the video. Seems like arrogance, greed, and hatred come with the human condition. Learn from that instead of fueling this shitty cycle that prevents the unity of the one group of humans on our only planet.

      • Some groups invite hatred. Zionism is terrorism, racism, thievery, usury, lies, manipulation, and lest we not forget, the False Flag attacks. If you don’the ‘hate’ that, you must be a Zionist Jew.

        I’m tired of spilling American blood for the wars of Israel, and I’m tired of MY country being systematically looted by these thieving sub-humans. Their fate is obviously sealed, but their arrogance and greed won’the let them see that far, however. It’s just a matter of how many millions, or even billions, will die before Zionism is stopped, ONCE AND FOR ALL.

        • Right on brother.. and least some people are aware of what they are.. God didn’t scatter them across the world for nothing.. baal was there God.. still is . Look at how they treat the Palestinians hundreds killed if there looking for one Palestinian and there family is massacred if they are found. God’s chosen people. Not the God I’ll want to meet or know.

  6. No kidding! An apartheid state won’t allow applicants for asylum from Africa, when the right of return of refugees from that very state is illegally refused? What a shock!

  7. People. No one from out side the middle east can understand the complexity and special rules which prevail in this harsh area. Israel has extreme aspects but it is still the only democracy in the area (gay rights, freedom of speech, no capital punishment, minority rights albeit with problems and so on). Please come and visit. See for your own

    • Any time I hear someone say that Israel is our only ally in the Middle East, I can’t help but think, that before Israel we had no enemies in the Middle East. Israel is a VERY racist, terrorist state, that is stealing Palestinian land and committing genocide, as the world watches. The Zionist have also destroyed the US. Was it Bolivia that just listed Israel as as terrorist state? At least someone has the balls to speak the truth. The people of he world have had more than enough!!

    • So calling themselves a democracy is supposed to make their crimes against humanity okay? I don’t think so. I wouldn’t visit that shit-hole of hatred if my life depended on it.

  8. so many incorrect facts in one 10min boring movie- amazing. the film maker forgot to mention that the reason for those protests against african immigrants were accruing after more then hundreds of sexual assaults being committed by africans in tel aviv alone. israel has helped each immigrant that was sent back to his home land with basic needs, shelter and money. which is more then they got in any other nation that just threw them back to where they came from.

  9. Wow Israel. Did you learn nothing?

  10. hm, this reminds me of the 2th world war.. Just with the jew on the other side

    • Jews cause ALL major wars. We have this insane ‘War on Terror’ now. I bet they get a good laugh over bagels every morning. Let’s have a new war, maybe a ‘War on Bad Stuff.’ The one we REALLY NEED to have, is a ‘War against Israel.’

  11. Don’t let the facts be compromised by the truth! Once again, vitriolic antisemitism rules now, but not for long. The end of this 6000 years period of human history is rapidly coming to a close and Jew haters worldwide will reap their just rewards! I’m spitting in the wind, but I will offer up a report, biased you will immediately say, of life in downtown Tel Aviv:-During the hearing, the Center for Immigration Policy in Israel wrote a detailed response to cries to repeal anti-infiltration laws. Great changes have been made in Tel Aviv’s southern neighborhoods since the law was enacted.

    One data point demonstrates, simply, how the infiltration problem is localized the South Tel Aviv. According to the data, 11% of infants at baby-care clinics [mandatory visits are required by Israeli law; provides a population census – ed.] in Tel Aviv are the children of migrant workers. By contrast, the baby-care clinic near the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station, which handles children in Neve Shanan and other areas in south Tel Aviv, reports that 93% of patients were born to illegal immigrants and infiltrators.

    The report also includes data from the Israeli Police, which reportedly shows correlation between infiltration and crime. Sexual offenses in neighborhoods with large percentages of infiltrators are recorded to be occurring at a rate 3.5 times higher than found in the general population, violent crime 2.5 times higher than in the general population, and robbery 6 times higher than in the general population.

    The report also shows that according to UNHCR figures, the number of Eritreans and Sudanese who entered Israel in the peak of infiltration, in 2011, were higher in absolute numbers than the ratio of illegal migrants who received asylum in any EU country. Thus, for example, Israel absorbed 95 times the number of infiltrators Spain does in terms of its population, and 370 times more in relation to Israel’s geographic size.

    Can anybody, reading this so obviously slewed report by a UN body, with hand on heart and say “bring them to my house, I will give them shelter and sucor ant attend to all their needs?”
    If you’re from the EU, according to this report, you should hanging your collective heads in shame for not exercising comparatively the same ratio of resources as Israel does in alleviating an African problem for which you, the European countries overwhelmingly are the architects of a problem that is your own creation! But there again, you’re not Jewish so the argument is a non-sequitur! Link for report above:-

    • I’m not an ‘Anti-Semite,’ I love Arabs.

    • ***”Jew haters worldwide will reap their just rewards!”*** This one statement shows the arrogance of the Zionists!! They believe they are special. If you don’t bow to the almighty Jew, then you will get your just punishment. Insane bullshit. It’s the supreme Jews, and then there is the rest of us. They actually believe this shit. That’s why they have zero respect for any other group of people – race, creed, color, or religion. They tolerate the U.S. because without the Americans their weak, sorry asses would have been slaughtered long ago, even after WWII. They’re a proud, brave people, as long as someone protects them from the big bad Arabs.

    • Who are the infiltraitors? You Israelis really dont know when to stop eh. You know israel gave birthcontrol to ethiopian jewesses – without the womens knowledge nor consent. What the hell is that?! Israel is a racist, apartheid state, an illegal occupant. The world is finally waking up.

  12. It is very sad and unbelievable that humans treat others in a sadistic manner due to their race, colour, gender, financial background, etc. Especially when your own race has been oppressed through the Holocaust you would think that some insight would be gained . I doubt any Jew not living in Israel would enjoy being treated poorly due to their but ignorance will always blind people and murder their souls. .

  13. They never mention that those Africans live in Israel, work were, and the rage came after a series of crimes committed by their community including rape, murder and assault, just like in Europe.
    Everyone should help them, but they need to act properly toward the country they live in.

    It’s easy to show bunch of extremists, those asshole who made this films is just a poor anti-semi.
    I bet he won’t go to Syria in order to film there about “human rights” because they will decapitate his ugly head in 5 seconds.

    • You wanna talk crime? Let’s talk 9/11!! The world is just a bunch of poor ‘anti-semites,’ and for good reason(s).

  14. I think they have the right to not allow black people to live in their country. It is their country and they fought for it so they can do what they want, if they dont want black people there other should respect their wish. Also Africans should go to the country where they like them, and also they should fought for their country to become good, not just go to other country and also get all benefits and social care, I mean what have their relatives contributed to the country so they can get any? Specialy if they are muslim, as they dont assimilate(they spread like an oil on the watter, and dont mix with watter), so your parents fought for your country, and then you have to have people you dont like. I see some people are too idealistic, but you know people we are not robots to say what is right and how people should feel, so if they are not comfortable with them dont see the reason to host them. I dont know how they allow them to come in the first place. Maybe for example in USA is not a problem because there is no social security, but in Europe in some countries there is very good social security(I dont know about Israel), and then you are paying money to the people that dont want to asimilate, and in the end they want their rules, it is crazy, some people stick to their idology, so they dont see meter around themself, or they cannot think for themself!

    • But these cowardly, greedy, defective, criminal Mo-Fo’s think they have a right to dictate mass-immigration policies to every other country on the planet? Eff the arrogant Jews.

  15. Using the holocaust as an excuse for outright abuse, rascism and persecution is blatant ironic idiocy. Israel has become what it loathed and feared and the US supports them which is a sham democracy ordering other nation states to do as they say not as they do. Noone can criticise israel without being labelled an anti-semite, just like noone can critique feminism without being called a misogynist. We live in a ridiculous world society that is soon beyond parody.

  16. Oh, the irony of it all. Shame on them.


  18. It’s funny that nethanyahu, don’t care if i spelled his name wrong, said that an influx of african migrants would change the Jewish traditions of the state of Isreal. What about the reports of thousands of Ethiopian Jewish women who emigrated to Isreal only to be forced by the government to take birth control injections as part of thier visa conditions. This clearly isn’t a matter of preserving the Jewish faith. Isreal is a racist, neo-facist and apartheid state.The only reason it still exists is because America armed it to the teeth with nuclear warheads which holds back all the arab countries in the region from tearing it limb from limb!

    • They weren’the ‘forced’ to take birth control, they were given it without their knowledge. Satan is alive and well, and he lives in Israel, with tentacles all over the world!!

    • You’re right, and the United States needs to severe ties with this cesspool of humanity. Jews embody everything that is wrong with humanity.

  19. Irony anyone? Has everyone forgotten WWII?

  20. im going to go out on a limb here and assume that DOVIDW, youre a jew? correct ? that being established maybe you can answer one or 2 questions about one of the 3 rabinical texts that you all follow as sources of doctrine. i speak of course about the talmud. how can you sit there on some sort of moral high ground ( nevermind your ridiculous calibration commen) whe you follow texts that enumerate WHEN IT IS APPRPORIATE TO HAVE SEX WITH 3 YEAR OLD CHILDREN? ouch ! all of us goyem are not the illierate chaddle you underestimate us as. how many goyem slaves are you destined to accumulate, agajn ? was it 2700 per jewish male. please i need to see how your jew mind will turn this around on me, when this in fact wha you believe and the basis of all of your sense of entilement….

  21. that is terrible what is happening. can’t believe these few jewish people are acting like they are. they go to other countries quite freely and no one batters an eye lid but, soon as these poor africans who seem to have nothing against Israel and are in need. get abused like this. SHAME ON ALL THESE PEOPLE AGAINST THIS! i wonder what it says in there religious texts about this kind of behaviour!

  22. They look and sound just like the Nazis. A case of the oppressed becoming the worst oppressor. Hate and passivity turns man into devils!

    • Yet they believe they are God’s chosen people. Now that’s insane. If there was a god, he/she/it would definitely NOT want this group of hate-filled jerks anywhere near Heaven. They’d sell their own mother for a dollar.

  23. Everybody should know what jews colons are doing in palestina territory with israel army watching and allowing this.. Damn you

  24. Hard to believe some kind of nazi-jews really exist… But not only them.. The whole wold is getting racist… Just like in russia against caucasian people.. And the ugliest thing the government support these groups… World’ future s so dark

  25. Indeed it is the truth thing for the countrys not wanting the very high and many number of the black peoples, isn’t it? But even the black peoples are the normal peoples. Very bad and sorrowful for to be incarcerating. More the better to policeman on Israel fringe zone and say it ‘no cannot to be coming in’.

  26. Oh my, not being able to rent houses, being put to work in camps? As someone who remembers the atrocities that happened here in WWII I can’t imagine why this still exists. Why so much hate? Wheter you’re jew or black or German, let’s just accept each other, learn from another and show love and kindness to each other. This is terrible…

  27. I’m sorry to see so much hate against Jews, you can’t hold an entire people responsible for the ignorance of some of their peers.its the same for the Israeli people who hold all Africans responsible for for the crimes of a few.

    Violence and hate only begets the same.

    • Nearly all Jews have the same arrogance, greed and are cursed with the idea that they truly are a superior race. The Zionists (and Mossad) are the ones that perpetrate the crimes like 9/11, 7/7, Charlie Hebdo, etc. But yes, there are some Jews that could coexist in a society with the Goyim, cattle.

  28. It’s really disgusting to see the Jews doing the same as the Nazis did,but if you say something you are antisemitic of course .just don’t forget if they did not stole all the land from the Palestinians they would not have a Country at all

  29. in this case we should expell all the jews from all over the world and send them back to Israel will see how they going to take their own

  30. Where is the outrage for the Sudanese Gov’t? Why are their own people so desperate to leave. That’s the true outrage! These poor people are harmless victims of their dumb azz gov’t.

  31. It’s eerie how quickly victims become the monsters they try to get away from.

    • The Zionist idea of a One World Government run from Israel, with ‘some’ of the Gentiles left to do the manually labor is nothing new. Israel is so racist because they believe they are ‘the superior race,’ so they must retain racial purity.

    • Couldn’t agree with you more, SirHell. It’s much more eerie, more bizarre that “refugees” fleeing from atrocities are prepared to exact the self same violence on innocent Israelis by stealing, rape and murder. I’m glad at least one other poster has the clarity of mind to see the truth!

  32. * Israel is the country with the highest number of protective US Security council vetoes… 100 + times

    * Israel has killed more innocent civilians per capita than any other country… 50,000 +

    * Israel has imprisoned more civilians per capita than any other country… 250,000 +

    * Israel has rendered more innocent civilians handicapped per capita than any other country… 50 thousand+

    * Israel has injured more innocent civilians per capita than any other country… 200,000 +

    * Israel has only two countries to defend its policies in the United Nations. These countries are America & Micronesia. The population for Micronesia as of June 2008 is only 108,000

    * Israel is the only country on Earth that denies the right of return of refugees

    * Israel is the only country on Earth that publicly, steals the water of its neighbors

    * Israel is the only country on Earth that has legalized home demolishing as a method of collective punishment

    * Israel is the only country on Earth that uproots trees as a method of collective punishment

    • Israel = Evil

    • Absolute arrant nonsense, except possibly for the number of UN vetoes!! Taking as a reference your bizarre and totally outrageous and transparently fabricated posting, one can confidently predict that you also believe that the the earth is flat, the moon is made of cheese and pigs and elephants can fly! You’re so naive that you shouldn’t be allowed out on the street alone with money in your pocket! You really shouldn’t have stopped taking your medication!


    Nearly 50,000 members of the World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) have downloaded special megaphone software that alerts them to anti-Israeli chatrooms or internet polls to enable them to post contrary viewpoints. A student team in Jerusalem combs the web in a host of different languages to flag the sites so that those who have signed up can influence an opinion survey or the course of a debate.

  34. @DovidW, The one thing this comment feed did not need was a self elected Censor. Every second comment is you (and to say your comment are clearly biased and dripping with venom would be an understatement)
    We get it DovidW – Pallestinians are imaginary and Israel does no wrong. Now crawl back under your stone and let open minded people discuss there thoughts

    • On the contrary, this is exactly what this comment feed needs is a Censor based on the stream of one sided antisemitic vitriol. Of course my comments are biased, just like yours. Prove your stance with verifiable evidence.. Disassemble my arguments point by point if you have the courage or the wisdom. Very doubtful. Yes, palestinians are imaginary (check the historic facts) and no, of course Israel does many wrong things. But compared with the rest of the world, almost insignificant. As I write, well over 150 victims of the war in Syria have been treated (free, of course) in Israeli hospitals; probably an unique event in the annals of warfare bearing in mind that technically Israel is still at war with Syria. But there again, as I stated before blind hatred is just what it is; blind. FYI the spelling of “there” in your final comment is spelt “their” but for an ignoramus like you, guess it’s close enough!!

  35. Using the same twisted logic implied in your grossly asinine comment, one could reasonably conclude that with a name like Armand you obviously must be a card carrying member of the Nazi party!!

  36. When I watched this I thought , if it was in black and white and put a German sound track down, wow who has Israel become!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. get your facts straight israel only became a state after 1947 after they stole Palestine’s land

    • Just for the record, what exactly are you saying? It can only be then, that the vote in the UN on November 1947, granting statehood to Israel either didn’t grant Israel statehood; or it never happened! So, give it your best shot, which is it? An anxious public awaits your early response!!

    • Get your facts straight It’s Jewish country and they make the laws there, They want only Jews in the country the prison camp thing is awful beyond words and the human rights violations should be something all Jews should be ashamed of and very sensitive of It’s ugly a hateful those folks should not go to a hostile country and expect to be granted entry

      • Jews are greedy, hateful, “We just want to be left alone” people. They will help themselves to your money though. No self-respect, and it shows.

      • I suggest Tim, before we all rush too fast to judgement on the “human rights” violations of Israel, let’s consider the human rights record of what I surmise to be the country from which the majority of the posters(?) on this board originate, i.e. America. A significant number of my comments are supported by documentaries on this web-site, as wells as TopDocumentary, Frontline, PBS, Metanoia,, BBC Channel4, etc. And the conclusion one inevitably comes to is that the country called America, which always shouts loudest for human rights has been for over a hundred fifty years, probably the single greatest violator not only of other countries human freedoms and dignity, but more specifically a violator of its’ own people! Thinking Jews are quite happy to be held to a higher standard than the other nations, it’s our role in humanity to calibrate the moral compass. But when the accusers (including European countries) of our admitted shortcomings come to the International courts of justice with their own hands dripping with the blood of millions of people on their hands, to call this blatant hypocrisy would be a gross understatement. The African refugee problem started long before the modern state of Israel existed. It stands wholly and squarely on the shoulders of the Western nation’s policy of colonisation and imperialism, the aftermath of which was to make sure the individual African nations would be left in a state of constant internal war. The rationale for this being a paving of the way for the acquisition of the inevitable big arms contracts coupled with the ability to plunder the continent of its’ raw materials at below market prices.To expect Israel to be in the forefront of picking up the tab on some other country/countries massive international criminal activities is equivalent to major banks losing $billions on reckless speculation and expecting the mass of working people to pay up for their losses!! Who could ever imagine such a preposterous and outrageous scenario?

    • Whether you accept it or not, the re-establishment of modern state of Israel was as a result of the United Nations vote on the 29th. November, 1947. It would therefore completely contradict your erroneous claim of land theft. Unless of course you believe the UN to be a criminal organisation which didn’t seem to be the prevailing majority world view at the time. Prior to this historic UN, the British, not for the first time in history, reneged on their mandate agreement with the Jewish leaders and STOLE 7/8th. of the land allocated to the Jews and created Trans-Jordan! So if there was any theft of land, it was the British stealing from the Jews. Can you give me any historical reference to “palestinians” prior to 1948? From 1948 till 1967 when the non-existent “palestinians” had all the territory they are now asking to be returned, it didn’t occur to them to set up their state, with E. Jerusalem as their capital But then of course, if your source for historical knowledge is gleaned from the back of a Kellog’s cornflakes package, it tends to lack minimal credibility!

      • They were under british rule you shmuck.

        In fact, allowing for the existence of Israel is, with historical distance, the worst decision the british empire ever made.

        I guess israeli history books and education amout to some sort of brainwashing though.

  38. Well this was moderately upsetting. That one scene of teenage nationalists screaming at an obviously terrified African woman while a man stands absolutely still hoping to remain invisible while biting his nails nervously is heart wrenching. I’m sure someone with a thesaurus will find something to read me on for writing this but I wonder if people will ever awaken to the idea of compassion? I believe it was Thumper’s mom that said “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” I make a decision every day on how I view the world and the people in it and know firsthand how it feels to be on the short end of the stick. Perhaps we all need to feel strife in order to contrast and heighten joy but maybe we all can make a different choice and help instead of harm when the opportunity is presented. Or perhaps a good ole alien attack would unite us all and strip away the superficial prejudices we carry that perpetuates ignorance and hate. The solution is clearly moon lizards. Moon lizards.

    • Agreed, that particular scene cannot be justified under any circumstances! But as with all complex issues, to take a snapshot from a documentary made by someone who so clearly has his own agenda and come to any meaningful conclusion, is bound to result in a dangerous distortion of reality. Has anyone made the documentary on the 68 year old Jewish woman who was murdered by a Sudanese asylum seeker as in the latter part of this report:-
      But the number of cases opened against Eritrean and Sudanese migrants nearly doubled, from 684 in 2011 to 1,048 cases in 2012, officials pointed out. The number of robberies also rose from 787 in 2011 to 1,160 incidents in 2012. and also Galili’s mother Esther was a victim of Sudanese crime in Tel Aviv. The 68-year-old was beaten to death by a drunk Sudanese man in 2010 near her home in southern Tel Aviv. The killer got just eight years in prison. “I was furious about the sentence, but it didn’t help,” Corinne recalled.
      Now to prove that old adage, lies, damn lies and statistics you could say that the criminal activities of the asylum seekers is significantly less than the indigenous population but this would be an obscene distortion of logic! Why on earth would any country accept any unwanted immigrants on the understanding that they come with their own more modest crime statistics? I’m just left wondering how many of the well meaning and holier than thou commentators on the BB would accept any uninvited foreigners into their own countries? None of course, is the answer. To get a wider understanding of the problem, suggest you view my earlier posts.

  39. Israel will never last, its an experiment gone wrong. When america finally wakes up to this fact it will be lights out lads !

    • Not quite sure how you came to this absurd and ridiculous conclusion when bearing in mind the fact that Israel, the Nation has been around for over three thousand years and white America, which is in its’ final death throes, will have lasted only a few hundred years!!
      Either you know something we don’t know or more probably, the logical functioning part of your brain requires some remedial work!

  40. Not all jews are pigs but all pigs are jews..

    • Your comment has moved me to tears, because I want to be the one who nominates you for the Darwin Award. FYI, this prestigious accolade is bestowed In the spirit of Charles Darwin, to commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives. Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species’ chances of long-term survival.

  41. Exodus 22:21
    “You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”

    Exodus 23:9
    “Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.”

    Leviticus 19: 33-34
    ‘When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God.”

    Deuteronomy 1:16
    ‘And I charged your judges at that time, “Hear the disputes between your people and judge fairly, whether the case is between two Israelites or between an Israelite and a foreigner residing among you.'”

    Deuteronomy 10:19
    “And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt.”

    Malachi 3:5
    “Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me,” says the LORD of hosts.

    • These Biblical quotes, in English, once again prove that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. The Torah, written in Hebrew has a number of hidden meanings contained within the simple words and to not include the added contextual content offered by the oral law often results a complete distortion in what the words really mean!. In a nutshell, illegal African asylum seekers do not in any way qualify as strangers or foreigners as the simple quotes suggest.That’s not to say that they should be in any way badly, but residing in Israel as part of the Jewish nation is not a solution.. Firstly, in order to get to Israel, these wretched people have had to trek through at least one other country before arriving at the Promised land and if I’m not mistaken, the obligation to give shelter and support to such migrants lies with the first country outside of the one from which these people are fleeing. If you look at a map of north Africa, one can see any number of countries from which migrants might consider Israel as the place to be. Should Israel be the recipient of any number of migrants leaving their respective counties for what. in many cases, is only for economic reasons? Have you considered the fact that poverty is exacerbated in countries where living is already at subsistence level by more developed countries stealing the fish stocks of the indigenous peoples; causing untold suffering and misery for whole communities for whom fishing is their only means of survival? Russian, Korean and Chinese factory ships are causing havoc
      with these people but very little is heard in the councils of power regarding this outrage. No, it’s all the Jew’s fault just as it has been throughout history. Before pointing an accusing finger at Israel maybe you should first check out your own country’s moral compass?

      • So, you are basicly saying here that only refugees from neighbouring countries should get shelter? Well, as being a resident of the ‘peacecity’ of this world, The Hague, where over 50% of the population has no dutch origin, and many religions and cultures succesfully live in one city together, i can only feel uphold by the sense of superiority or righteousness in your writings, ..shortly whereafter i realised you just find in this ‘unrighteousness to your people’ the needed outlet for some subconscious negative feelings of being a victim.
        But, we can only be oppressed when we are putted in fear, and disconnected from our ability to love and see with love and think with love.
        I know it is scary,… but i know deep down inside you are a good person and i can only say you that if you want you will be free of any thought of hate, blame or any need to judge over an other man as soon as you will understand how resonance governs all that you know

      • often results in a*

      • I agree with @Dovidw

        • Thank you for endorsement, Robert. I frequently feel I am a lonely candle flame in a hurricane. It’s interesting to note that even in cases where I support the plight of the refugees or attack racism, I still get a minus rating on my comment!

  42. Historical trauma. The abused tends to become the abuser. There are long lasting repercussions to holocausts and genocides. There are no winners here. Many examples of this. It’s very sad. Let’s “pray” that we can all forgive each other some day.

  43. ok so bring a million sudans to America…lets do that.

  44. In the beginning you say no European country will take Africans in…why not? bc they dont want to deal with this themselves! LOL Yes some israelis are racist i agree..however if there was another holocaust israel would be the only country that the Jews could go to to be safe…So yes israel does need to keep itself Jewish and safe…What about the sudans that rape and steal from the israeli people? there was nothing mentioned about that! Why should this be Israels problem to begin with? No one looks out for Jews like Israel does as they should. Everyone, every country, every culture looks out for themselves…its a shame the world isnt unified and we dont share the planet as one nation….but this is the reality of the world we live in.

  45. Nothing in this documentary surprises me. I wept in Yad Vashem when I saw the awful symmetry between the Warsaw ghetto and the evil partition wall of Israel. The tragic re-enactment of trauma is there for the world to see. Dear Dovidw, your protestations are pointless and shameful to repeat. Of course, you are from a subtle intelligent and proud species: humanity. Please urge your fellows to follow peace and give up racism and bigotry.

    • Your comment is probably one the most offensive and outrageous postings on this board to date! Are we to believe that because a young girl weeps in Yad Vashem “over the symmetry
      between the Warsaw ghetto and the evil partition wall” that this somehow bestows upon you
      some sort of higher moral authority to the point of passing judgement on the Jews
      of Israel? Just for your elucidation, here is a quote from Wikipedia on the Warsaw

      The death toll among the Jewish inhabitants of the Ghetto, between deportations to extermination camps, Großaktion Warschau, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the subsequent razing of the ghetto, is estimated to be at least 300,000.

      Once again, critical thinking and intellectual honesty is something woefully missing
      from your pathetically small mental mindset.You should hang your head in shame for such a disgusting and idiotic comparison; and you call my comments shameful? Begs the question what on earth are you doing in a country of such evil people as the Jews?

      • That is the incorrect usage of the phrase “begs the question”, you’re racist and ignorant – I should have seen that one coming.

      • I am not sure she was saying she had any morel authority, it is sad to see such hatred and there is a common theme of hatred in both stories. I probably don’t understand what it is like to feel threatened in Israel, but I think we can all agree demonizing a group, removing their civil rights, and detaining them is not a practice that has a bright history. I really doubt that israel is under siege and is being threatened by the Sudanese, Eritreans, and Somalis. It looks like hate-filled nationalism that should not be condoned, supported, or perpetrated by citizens of any country. It is probably not a fair representation of the actual situation for everyone, but if those elements exist they should be not be continued or tolerated by a developed nation that was founded partially because of a excruciating and horrible legacy of abuse, at the hands of stigmatizing, overreactive, racist, nationalists.

        • Absolutely she is! By making a moral equivalence between the Warsaw ghetto and Israel’s protective wall she has made a most odious comparison. And by giving her your support, in spite of the fact that you have the benefit of historical facts brought to your attention, renders you far objectionable than she is!!

  46. Absolutely disgraceful. An insight into what is meant to be a forward thinking secular society, Tel-Aviv. Disappointing on so many levels. The unashamedly racist remarks, the alienation of whole non-jewish communities, and the rounding up and imprisonment of people based solely on their ethnic origin. A further stain on Israel’s history. This hope of maintaining a “Jewish state” is futile and is causing so much harm, hate and fear in the middle east. A unified, secular, open-minded society is the only way peace will ever be felt in the region.

    • The thing is, their hatred and actions can only lead to one place for them. We all know what that will be.

    • I think you comment comes under the heading of misguided and misunderstood. It is not for outsiders to determine or impose on Israel what it should or should not do. I haven’t a clue what a forward thinking secular society is? Can you name me one unified, secular, open-minded society that’s functioning normally in this world of total chaos? And what does a “further stain on Israel’s history mean?” Have you recently checked out world history over the last few hundred years of the unremitting exploitation by the more technically advance nations plundering the life blood of lesser nations in terms of their manpower (slavery)
      and raw materials? Could it be that the parlous situation that pervades all of Africa is just the awful legacy of the centuries of white European exploitation and subjugation of peoples unable to resist? That’s not to say of the two thousand years of Christian and 1400 years of Islamic antisemitism; and you’re preaching peace to the Jews in Israel? I suggest a perusal of my earlier observations on this comments forum would give you some
      insights as to why Israel has an overriding duty to address the well being of its’ own citizens first; just like any other responsible nation would be obliged to do!

      • Jews are a greedy, hate-filled, arrogant and violent people. This isn’t about addressing the well-being of it citizens first. You people deserve everything that is coming.

      • i think nobody should ever try to broaden your understanding and view, because you obviously simply will refuse to even doubt ANY of your conclusions. So all i would love to say is “goodluck with your image of the world, i petty your life-experience” . And from MY life-experience i cxan say without doubt that you clearly have never suffered really seriously in life,…. I know that for sure just because suffering teaches also empathy and compassion. I am sorry on behalf of every human who ever made you feel afraid, threatened or not cared for, and wish u much wisdom, peace and harmony

  47. This video is very sad indeed. What is also sad are the comments below which show the same level of misunderstanding and prejudice as those in the film. But what I also find hopeless is that every otherwise well educated, well researched and well written comment by Dovidw seem to be far too aggressive to change the mind of any idiot, let alone those perpetrating these terrible acts. So to you Dovidw, I suggest you get down off your high horse, recognise that there are misguided and misunderstood souls out there, and try to reach them in the spirit of humanity. Rather than playing your constant game of one upmanship intended solely to highlight your own intellectual superiority.

    • Well on the point of this being a very sad video we are in agreement. I’ll go
      further and say it’s also a very bad video. You seem to be somewhat confused
      insofar on the one hand you give credit for a “well educated, well written, well
      researched comment” and conclude that it’s also “hopeless and aggressive!” I am
      intrigued to know on what basis you come to this bizarre conclusion? And who
      are you to assume that my intention is to change the minds of “misguided and
      misunderstood souls?” I respond to antisemitic slander and prejudicial odium in a manner
      which I see fit with no regard for the concerns, sensibilities or other lackings of
      the perpetrators of such venomous hate. And if this bothers you, great! I feel
      I have achieved my objective. Your final pathetic attempt to discredit my comments
      is to play the old “ad hominem” card. If you can’t repudiate the message,
      kill the messenger!

      • You represent your people well. Every post oozes with hatred.

      • You clearly are an inteligent human being. Hence why I stated your comments were well researched and well written. However, I am sure you can see that someone can be knowledgeable on any specific topic, and yet miss the bigger picture. You belittle my comment by saying I finally bring out the old ‘ad hominem’ card, like this earth we live on is forever destined to fall into disrepair. In this way, I was indeed foolish to assume you were here trying to change people’s opinions. Hell, anyone would be forgiven for reading into that as I did when seeing how much time you have clearly spent trying to right so many wrongs in the comments here. My point being, your agressiveness will never, ever change this world for the better. And if you are not trying to change this world for the better, then what are you doing? You come across just as angry, pathetic and pointless as many of the idiots on here posting stupid and derogatory views, only you, unfortunately, seem to have the inteligence to look at this with a more balanced perspective. I hate to be the one who tells you this, friend, but no one will take your arguments on board. Not because of what you say, I happen to agree in most cases, but for the simple fact the way your approach injustice and wrong-doing makes you as worthless to any real change as a fart.

        • You’re obviously a glutton for punishment, because most of this rambling posting really doesn’t make any sense at all. I’m not going to bother any more pointing out your deficiencies in attempting to construct a meaningful dialogue, so this will be my last word to you on the matter. There’s no basis for your conclusion that someone can be “knowledgeable on any subject and miss the big picture.” there’s just no logic to that conclusion whatsoever. In my world, knowing something means understanding a subject from conception to its’ final manifestation including all the details and nuances. “Like this
          earth is always destined to fall into disrepair!” What’s that all about?
          We certainly agree on one thing, that foolish you certainly are! Wrong. I’m not at all trying to change peoples opinions; they’re already set in concrete as supported by a quote from Biblical sources; something which would be way outside of your frame of reference. You make far too many asumptions as to how I think and what my motivations are which are based purely on your limited ability to understand anything beyond your simplified world view. If my standpoint is perceived to be “angry and aggressive” I reserve that right to destroy those who would destroy me by any means at my disposal; especially by pointing out glaring flaws in facts, logic and prejudicial thinking. Apart from my initial comment, all my subsequent comments are reactive to those who are transparently antisemitic and would further the cause to see the demise of the Jewish people as a desirable goal! Your penultimate comment is just so ridiculous and just highlights your own pathetic confusion by employing personal sleights in an attempt to undermine my views for which logical argument have deserted you. As for your last comment, all credibility disintegrates with your feeble “I hate to tell you, friend.” Let me tell you this, you are no friend of mine and you never will be and your use of unclean language just confirms to me the low life that you really are!

  48. Now if we could do something about the stinkin (literally) Africans they bring over here.

    • I can with, absolute certainty, assure you that your offensive comment condemns you to a much more serious condition than someone with a stinky body. You have a stinky mind and that’s far, far harder to remedy; if at all!

  49. If this weren’t so dramatically tragic, I would laugh at the irony that jews, of all people, are so similar to nazis.

    • Yeah, you would have thought they would have learned something. They do play the sympathy card very well though.

    • Now that’s such a stupid comment, it doesn’t deserve the epithet “stupid!”
      Asinine, uninformed, uneducated and pathetic spring to mind, but let’s go
      with your theory of “Jews are so similar to Nazis.” So in order to fit the
      parameters of your theory, it must be that the Jewish parliament have enacted
      a whole range of oppressive laws specifically excluding all Arabs from the professions
      including law, medicine, education, finance etc and a whole host of other activities such
      as owning and running stores, being bus drivers for Jewish run bus companies,
      taxi drivers etc. Just like the Nazis. Also, just like the Nazis we must have forced
      the Arab population into the many ghettos that you see all over Israel as
      well as the myriad of concentration camps dotted all over the Holy landscape.
      Just like the Nazis, right? Not to forget, of course the obligatory daily acts of
      extreme violence such as the burning alive of whole villages tastefully done in
      their houses of worship by way of enhancing the experience! And yet what is really
      ironic is the fact that with all this presumably well known in the Arab world,
      still a significant number of Muslim, African asylum seekers head for the very
      place where their lives are in mortal danger from the Israeli Nazis!! And what’s
      even more perplexing and maybe you can concentrate all your impressive mental
      capabilities on this little conundrum. There’s an organization called IL4Syria
      an Israeli based Jewish/ Nazi charity that is sending food, medical aid
      blankets clothes etc to the very people that they should be seeking to exterminate!
      It could just be that in the field of Jews being just like the Nazis they’re not
      very good at it at all!!

  50. When are you guys going to get it through your thick skulls that there are no sides to pick here because there isn’t a rational one on the table and every one is wrong. The US should not be sending or taking money to or from any foreign special interest groups whether they be Jewish or Palestinian or Arab or anything nor should they get involved. If these two groups can’t come together and wish to behave like children and fight over a little worthless dried up patch of dessert then let them kill each other if it is the inevitable, more oxygen for the rest of us who can get along. A lot of people don’t like that statement, but do you know whats worse than that statement? The fact that these people are killing each other everyday over %100 bullshit. And as your snap judgment forces you to spew forth a “It’s not bullshit” or “It’s not a patch of dessert it’s our religious heritage.” I’ll stop you right there with a big ol’ GOD DOES NOT EXIST AND THE SOONER ALL YOU IDIOTS FIGURE THAT OUT THE BETTER OFF WE’LL ALL BE! Even if it did exist (which it doesn’t) none of what any of you are doing reflect the scriptures of your holy books, so if they existed (which they don’t), then you’d all be going to your respective hells. Also Jews in this video are screaming “I’m proud to be racist” which is odd considering the most notable group to chant such anthems in my mind nearly brought your people to extinction. What if the US acted like this and wanted to round up everyone who wasn’t white how would that be different from whats happening here? You might say the US is doing this to Mexicans, but that is based on nationality not race or religion, and there are millions of legal Mexican American citizens and millions more of every other race, creed, culture and religion, it’s not perfect but we try and so do most other countries. So, WTF is wrong with you Israel? What makes you so special you think no ones allowed in your little club? It’s 2013, time to grow up and stop trying to rationalize your hatred based on ancient beefs. You may have survived seven countries coming at you with Kalashnikovs but you can’t survive seven countries coming at you with nukes in fact none of us can so for the sake of the world and all of humanity cool your fucking jets.

    • You’re preaching to deaf ears. The Jews truly believe they are special, that they are God’s chosen children. As ludicrous as it sounds, it’s true. Can you imagine any self-respecting god choosing ‘that’ as his/her people? The Sudanese would be much more desirable, obviously. There’s some seriously defective genes in that Jew pool. The U.S. needs to cut all ties with Israel and let the chips fall where they will. You reap what you sow. Hatred begets hatred, and the Jews are consumed with it – blind even.

    • The only minute piece of integrity which lies in this otherwise meandering, vacuous and vapid vomit of vox populi lies in your name, Vulgar! Truly befitting a man without articulate expression or appreciation of anything outside a very narrow, confused and painful inner world. Not only are you an embarrassment to yourself, but also to anyone to whom you
      might be associated with! Your “comment” about Jews and Arabs fighting over “a little worthless dried up patch of dessert (sic) belies your own rabid, blind antisemitic agenda. FYI this documentary has nothing at all to do with the Jewish/Arab conflict,but then to someone like you blind hatred is what it is. Blind!! One is left pondering how on earth can you have a valid opinion about anything when your knowledge of this subject is so pathetically non existent? You who come from a nation whose record in International affairs is one long litany of supporting and involvement in violent insurrection causing the deaths of countless millions in over 50 countries since WW2 beggars belief. How dare you pass judgement on another nation’s treatment of illegal immigrants forcing themselves uninvited into another country when your own country’s treatment of its’ own non white indigenous population is not only criminal, but perverts all standard norms of civil society? Probably your only claim to any degree of mental capability lies in the fact that your were able to add up two numbers correctly before submitting your post!! Btw what on earth are “ancient beefs?” Old leather, perhaps?

      • I wrote a fantastic rebuttal to this obviously close minded and bias character who seems to be completely oblivious to reality and is incapable of admitting he is wrong and insists on refusing to be educated. This is not an unusual behavior and is expected from bigots and fanatics. I suppose the votes speak for themselves. However, once I reached a nearly 3000 word count I decided he wasn’t worth it and I rather keep the information for myself for future use. Suffice it to say he failed in his argument as soon as he tried to assassinate my character as opposed to presenting a valid argument containing any facts. It is also quite amusing that he proceeded to do exactly what I predicted he would as previously detailed in my original comment. The word vulgar has many meanings, one of which is “of the people”. The word ‘beefs’ is a colloquial term which is basically synonymous with ‘resentment’, a feeling I’m sure Dovindw is very familiar with. I win.
