AFRICANGLOBE – African refugees in Israel face violence, discrimination and an uncertain future.

Tensions came to a head in Tel Aviv this April with a Molotov cocktail attack on African homes and a creche.

In a country where refugees are seen as ‘infiltrators’ and a ‘cancer’, Isayas is a refugee attempting to change the situation on the ground.

He escaped Eritrea after being imprisoned and tortured and is now trying to gather support and build a network to improve the plight of those fleeing war-torn countries.

He works tirelessly to organise sit-ins and marches to challenge the construction of the world’s largest detention centre for refugees.

Isayas’ energy is endless but even he has moments when the pressure gets too much.

    Unless those African immigrants know how to catch rockets with their bare hands (and are willing to join the Israeli army), they should leave. Israeli is not a safe place for them. Heck, Israel is not safe for Israelis right now. Get a clue!

    Whatever u will say is a lie. We Africans like Israel more than the US and Europe .
