Only this week, on May 20, 2012, Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, warned that the influx of African migrants is “threatening the fabric of Israeli society, its national security, and its national identity”, adding that if Israel doesn’t act to stop African migration “60,000 infiltrators are liable to become 600,000, and lead to the eradication of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.” 

Speaking after the worst violence in Tel Aviv for years on May 23, 2012, Oscar Olivier, a Congolese migrant, said, “The question is not if they will kill an African because he is black, but when.”
