Police Brutality Israel

Thousands of Israelis protested Sunday, amid allegations of police brutality targeting Ethiopians.

Protester Eddie Maconen said, “Being Black, I have to protest today.”

“First the police need to be dealt with, then we’ll get to all the other (official) bodies that screw over Ethiopians,” he told AFP.

The protest surged through the streets of Tel Aviv, with demonstrators carrying placards with messages such as, “We demand full equal rights.”

“In Europe they kill Jews because they’re Jews, here they kill Jews for being Black,” another placard read, according to Al Jazeera.

Police threatened to forcibly disperse the rally, after it blocked a main highway, according to the Times of Israel. There are unconfirmed reports of at least two protesters being arrested.

UPDATE: Police have deployed tear gas against protesters, in an effort to force them from the streets. There are reports at least one police vehicle has been overturned.

The demonstration was the second major rally since footage emerged earlier in the week of two police officers beating an Israeli Ethiopian soldier. The footage sparked a wave of outrage, with critics accusing police of widespread discrimination against Ethiopians. On social media, the protests have been likened to the rallies in Baltimore, U.S.

Over 120,000 Ethiopian Jews live in Israel. Human rights groups have long claimed Ethiopians face discrimination from across Israeli society. When thousands of Ethiopian Israelis protested Thursday night in Jerusalem, they were met with tear gas, prompting clashes that left at least 10 people injured.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has responded by vowing to see the officers shown in the footage that sparked protests prosecuted.

“I strongly condemn the beating of the Ethiopian IDF soldier and those responsible will be held accountable,” he said.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
