The white protesters gathered near the Central Bus Station in Tel Aviv, and held their protest targeting African immigrants and calling for their deportation from the country.
They also described Israeli leftists as “traitors” and held signs saying “South Tel Aviv, Not South Sudan”, Haaretz reported. They stated that they will continue their protests until the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “acts against the immigration of Africans instead of just talking about it”.
During a similar protest against African immigrants last week, an African person, who was walking in the area, was attacked while several protesters also set garbage cans on fire and smashed windows of a number of cars parked in the area.
Over a thousand Israelis held protests in south Tel Aviv demanding the government deport all African asylum seekers and immigrants. The protesters marched in Hatikva neighborhood, inhabited mainly by persons of African origin, and ransacked property in the neighborhood while setting trashcans ablaze.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
