Anti-Palestinian Climate in Israel: War Against Racism Rages On

Extract from: Anti-racism rally held in al-Quds
Palestinian and Israeli activists …/… [demonstrated] to protest against the murder of a Palestinian man by Israeli settlers and the ban on selling or renting to Arabs…/…

AFP reported hundreds of people gathered in central al-Quds (Jerusalem) late on Saturday to protest against the murder of Hussam al-Rweidi two weeks ago.
24-year-old …/…Hussam was critically injured and taken to a hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

…/…Protesters condemned the rise in racism in Israel and called for the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu…/…and for the dismissal of …/…Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman…/…accused of promoting a racist, anti-Palestinian climate in Israel.

In December 2010, 50 Israeli rabbis issued a ruling that bans Jewish people from selling or renting their homes to Arabs in the occupied Palestinian territories…./…

A recent survey conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute found that 53 percent of Israelis believe that the Israeli government has the right to deport Palestinian citizens and almost half of Jewish Israelis would be bothered by having a Palestinian neighbor.

Israel occupied and then annexed the West Bank and East al-Quds in the Six-Day War of 1967, but the move has never been recognized by the international community.
