The Neo-Nazis of Israel - Xenophobic violence against African asylum seekers

Israel Xenophobia africans asylum

After watching the following video on YouTube I was taken by surprise from the acts of a country often described as "The most civilized in the middle east area".

Watch the video then continue reading

The video shows the amount of Xenophobia in the Israeli society, it baffles me how disrespectful Israel is towards the right of asylum described in article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states the following:

Article 14.

  • (1) Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.
  • (2) This right may not be invoked in the case of prosecutions genuinely arising from non-political crimes or from acts contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.
As far as I know, Israel is one of the member nations in the UN but according to the video they are breaking the laws of the UN which shouldn't be gone unpunished by the international community.
