An Israeli woman wearing a shirt that says “Death to Sudanese” as the debate over presence of African asylum seekers in Israel turns violent. 

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.”
“Whole new world, baby”: Conservatives gloat over Netanyahu’s victory

Israeli PM’s larger-than-expected victory has the right crowing!

“ … The polarizing prime minister’s victory followed a campaign in which he vowed that there would be no Palestinian state if he remained in power, and came just hours after he warned right-wing voters that “Arab voters are coming out in droves to the polls.” Moreover, Netanyahu badly damaged relations with the Obama administration after he delivered a bombastic congressional address on March 3 denouncing the international negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program. … “

“ … Netanyahu undoubtedly outperformed expectations, but his path to a fourth term in power came at a heavy price. That didn’t much bother conservative Twitter, however, which gloated in the hours after it became clear that Netanyahu would remain premier. Here’s a sampling of the right’s crowing, which ranged from the crude and crass to the simply snarky.   “
