Two far-left activists were arrested on suspicion of setting fire to a housing protest tent set up by right-wing activists in Tel Aviv on Thursday.

Police said a verbal confrontation developed between the suspects and those who had set up the tent on the corner of Sderot Rothschild and Rehov Allenby.

Following the argument, "two youths in their 20s set the tent on fire, and assaulted a photographer on the scene," a Tel Aviv police spokeswoman said.

The suspects fled the scene, but were soon captured by officers from the Lev Tel Aviv police station and arrested.

This is not what it's about - this should not be a left-right thing or even a religious-secular thing. All sectors of the population are suffering under the burden of high housing food and utility costs. Hopefully this incident will prove to be the exception.

Since Baruch Marzel and his mob of Kahana fascists only went to the tent city to try and cause problems (racist and homophobic changing, for instance) - probably sent by the far right government as agents provocateurs - it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that they were the ones who started the fire and attacked the photographer. They do have form in being violent with a pyromanic tendency. Just look at the Price Tag Jewish terrorists. That's their MO.
Also the organisers, a group of middle class professionals, asked marzels fascists to leave because of the provocations they were causing. Everyone is welcome at the protest, just not the settlers and the other fascists who caused the economic crisis for the middle and working classes in the first place.
Boker Tov me'od, yisrael.

They were not asked to leave - the report in this morning's print edition of the Jerusalem Post quotes one of the organisers as welcoming their participation. This affects all sectors of the population and as a democratic country everyone has a right to be and will be heard.

Nice try: However, the Anarchists Against the Wall movement rejected the far right claims.

"The idea of torching a tent with people inside is shocking," said a member of the movement. "The very idea of one of the activists belonging to Anarchists Against the Wall would do such a thing is preposterous. These are groundless, slanderous accusations"

That kind of pyromaniac protest is the modus operandi of the Jewish terrorists in the occupied territories.
Funny how the far right and its wannabe supporters were dissing the protests only last week, but now that they seem to have widespread support - 80% of Likudniks even - the fascists feel the need to join in. After their racist and homophobic chanting yesterday, they aren't welcome.

Tensions flared on Rothschild Wednesday after large groups of rightist activist arrived at the protest site to the great dismay of many protesters who do not agree with the rightists' views.
The hypocrisy of the nine days, eh...

Quote:

Assaf Levy one of the more prominent members of the tent city protest movement sat with (Baruch) Marzel and framed the social struggle as one that is not about politics.
"This is not only an economic revolution, it is also a social one and part of its goal is to break down the idea of Right and Left. The settlers are very different than us in many different ways but that doesn't change that we have many things in commen. Both of us are Jews and part of a heritage thousands of years old". Levy said the Left vs. Right paradigm is forged by Israeli MKs while saying "turning one part of the public against another part is what the Knesset does all the time. This brotherhood is our answer to the MKs who just try and get us to fight one another all the time in order not to pay attention to what they're [the Knesset members ]are doing.

Ahavat chinum - true love between brothers and the message of the Nine Days.

Marzel and his fascist thugs were shunned by most protesters because they aren't stupid. They realise that the fascists were sent as agents provocateurs the moment they started with their racist and homophobic chanting.
It's a bit too late to jump on the bandwagon.
I can't wait until this hypocrisy ends on Tuesday night. Then the true face of the fascist purveyors of sinat chinam, the settlers and their great pretender friends, will be able to go back to doing what they do best - spreading hatred, especially of themselves.

"...baseless hatred of others -- "sinath habrioth" -- reflects a deficiency in the uniquely human component of the individual." The Maharal of Prague commenting on
Chapter 2: Mishna 19: of the Ethics of the Fathers which states that baseless hatred takes a person out of this world.

And in spirit of their hatred, here's some of the graffiti sprayed on a JNF street marker (how ironic) on Rothschild Boulevard.

The slogans read: "The Sudanese are donkeys" (a reference to the asylum seekers and those who do all the dirty work) and "Arabs Out" (in German that's "Juden Raus").
Here we have some of the fascists' good ole baseless hatred

And here we have some wearing T-shirts with "Tel Aviv for Jews". They must have got that one from here

Crowds of Rostockers let the rock throwers disappear into their midst when chased by police, cheering on the skinheads and screaming "Germany for the Germans!" Hundreds of rioters were arrested, and hundreds of police were injured in the fighting.

Maybe they need T-shirts that say "Auslander Raus!" Oh, there is one with something like that.
Oh dear, here are some "anarchists"
