Humiliating Selfies: Racism in Israel on the Rise

A post that’s gone viral on Facebook drew attention to the issue of rampant racism in Israel.

The Israeli photographer Jonathan Small was walking as he passed two black individuals who were showering while ‘not harassing or hurting anyone’.

After a while, a group of Israeli men began harassing them. Reportedly, they shoved, pulled them and forced them to take humiliating selfies.

Soon after this episode, a report was released by Israeli State Comptroller Joseph Shapira, who wrote on Thursday that:

Only a few weeks ago, Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef had called black people monkeys. His words had been widely condemned across the world.
