Residents of Israeli town dub African students “animals, rapists and human trash”

According to messages sent on a Whats App group, the residents believe if the Africans are not dealt with, there would be a rise in sexual assault, break-ins and murder

Africans students would be booted out of Israel after a town’s residents complained about them allegedly raising crime in the community.
With the racism against African people in Israel at an all time high, recent reports just showed how serious the issue truly is.
Residents of the Israeli town of Avshalom have accused African students, who are residing in the country due to an agriculture government programme, of elevating crimes in the community.
According to a report by IOL, the Israeli residents believe crimes related to sexual assault, breaking an entry and murder, have been on a rise since the African students arrived.
Briefly.co.za learned the Israeli media managed to get their hands on messages sent in a WhatsApp group, where residents blatantly show their hatred towards Africans.
One group member urged others to help take action or face the criminal consequences of the Africans, while another user used harsh terms to describe the foreigners.
It is not the first time the country displayed racism against Africans. A month ago, Israeli parliamentarian, Oren Hazan, warned if they do not drive Africans out of their country, the foreigners would take over.
Hazan continued by saying Africans have no culture and there should be a ban for African refugees to have children in Israel. In fact, the racism towards Africans are so high a new Israeli law allows the withholding of refugees salaries until they agree to leave the country.
