MK Danny Danon (Likud), held an urgent discussion in the Knesset’s Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs which he chairs, on the issue of the abduction of young female immigrants from the former Soviet Union by Arabs.  The representative of the Israel Police testified that she has no knowledge of a single such case of abduction.  MK Nissim Ze’ev (Shas) called for outlawing conversion to Islam before the age of 21.  Nissim Algelani, a club owner from Kiryat Gat, said that in his town and in neighboring Netivot there is a municipal bylaw which prevents non-residents from loitering in the city after 11 pm, stating that “in Netivot, for example, you will not find Bedouins or their like prowling the streets after eleven at night, there’s no way they’re prowling there.”  MK Lia Shemtov (Yisrael Beitenu) said that these bylaws “should be adopted”, and MK Danny Danon said that the legality of such laws should be examined and that “providing mayors with further authority so that they could take care of this phenomenon” should be considered.

Pasquills (Wall posters written by ultra-orthodox Jews) spread across Safed in the past week are calling against the plan to build a Medical School in the town, defining it A Hollocaust of Assimilation. The pasquills’ natures reveal this is not only a battle against future Arab students but also for the city’s future ambiance. According to residents, the identity of the people who spread the pasquills is unknown. “It is obvious that only a few are involved”, said a resident related to the ultra-orthodox community, “but the ultra-orthodox society is aligning with the extremists, and the moderates are silent”.

Despite the fact that the right wing demonstration against “Arabs palling around with minor girls” in Ashkelon was postponed due to the weather, Baruch Marzel came to the city, to talk with residents. He says “our protest is mainly against the Bedouins who live in Ashkelon, but also against the Arabs and the refugees from Sudan and Eritrea. The residents here don’t want hostile residents. They don’t want innocent girls to be trapped by people who pose as Jews and trap them cunningly.” Deputy Mayor Shimon Cohen said that “Ashkelon has terrible and most shocking cases, where upper-class girls fall into traps set by those villains. Caution against minorities should be inculcated at the beginning of high school, if not earlier.”

Sterna Drukman, wife of Kiryat Motzkin Chief Rabbi Meir Drukman, was one of the women who signed the “rabbis’ wives letter”, asking Jewish women not to work in places employing Arabs and to refrain from dating them. In an interview, Drukman said “everyone understands that assimilation is similar to a spiritual holocaust”. Drukman further said that “it’s no secret that the Arab young men excel in courting. They don’t appear before the Jewish women in kaffiyehs, but come dressed as Europeans, nice and charming. They usually win the hearts of easily-seduced, flighty women, and bribe them with pricey gifts, expensive perfumes, jewelry, etc. The girls, most of whom as I’ve said are of weak character, fall pray to the charms of this men, and do not realize this is a honey trap”.

About 200 right-wing activists demonstrated in the center of Bat Yam, shouting anti-Arab slogans. One of the demonstrators mounted the podium and said “every Jewish woman who goes out with an Arab must die; every Jew who sells his house to an Arab must die”. The right-wing demonstration was titled “We want a Jewish Bat Yam”. Among the demonstrators were the extreme right wing activists Baruch Marzl and Itamar Ben Gvir. One of the speakers said: “We are not racists, we’re simply Jews. We taught the nations tolerance and humanity. Fie on the mouth that says we’re racists. The Arabs come and take our girls, we’ll say no to that”. (Hebrew)
