When racism is acceptable: Israeli Racism

The walls of a Mosque in Jaffa were vandalized early Sunday morning with messages of hate towards the city's Arab population. "Death to Arabs" and other messages were spray painted on walls and doors of the building causing tension between the city's Arab and Jewish populations. Yet where is the media coverage? Why has this type of hate crime gone unnoticed and unspoken about by the majority of the Media? Silence and Media blackouts of such hate crimes are just as bad as the crime itself. What a life it must be to be an Israeli, when the whole world is outlawed from standing against or disagreeing with you for fear of being called racist or anti-Semitic, yet you can be as racist and hateful towards others as you wish? What a double standard! Oh to be an Israeli. . .
