Israeli journalists are only inflaming tensions by blaming longtime Oriental Jews residents of south Tel Aviv for the plight of African asylum seekers. So one must ask: why aren't journalists actually holding the government accountable? Shoshana Gabay (Translated from Hebrew by Benno Karkabe, Shoshana Gabay and Dana Hadadi) May Golan is a young resident of an impoverished south Tel Aviv neighborhood, and an active member of Michael Ben-Ari's fascist movement "Otzma Le'Israel" (Power to Israel).

Day 42 - (March 16, 2014) Yesterday evening one guy in our room wasn't feeling well. I went to talk with gate prison and told him about it. He answered that it is not his responsibility.

Day 21 - Day 26 (February 22 - February 27, 2014) Notes: My friend was sick and got these painkillers. Right after he took them he got even sicker, in his stomach too. We were all awake at night because he wasn't feeling well. Nobody in Holot cares about you when you don't feel well, there is no medical center, only a small room. You either need to take public transportation to Beer Sheva, or you need to walk. If it is really bad they take you. I think they are trying to kill us. It made me very sad.…Read More... | 2 Comments
