Quite a headline:
African asylum seekers injured in Tel Aviv race riots, by Conal Urquhart, The Guardian, May 23, 2012
Dozens of African asylum seekers were injured as race riots broke out in Tel Aviv on Wednesday night.
Thousands of protesters joined politicians to protest against the arrival of an estimated 60,000 asylum seekers in Israel in recent years. But after inflammatory speeches the demonstration broke out into violence.
Witnesses reported seeing men and women being beaten and shops and properties being attacked. Police said nine people were arrested.
The protesters were addressed by politicians including Miri Regev and Danny Danon of the ruling Likud Party. According to the Israeli newspaper Ha`aretz, Regev described the asylum seekers as a “cancer in our body,” and promised to do everything “in order to bring them back to where they belong”.
Danny Danon, who heads a lobby group which seeks to deal with the issue of illegal immigration, said the only solution to the problem would be to “begin talking about expulsion”.
“We must expel the infiltrators from Israel. We should not be afraid to say the words `expulsion now`,” he was reported as saying.

Anger has been growing in the city and earlier this year the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the migrants threatened the Jewish character of Israel
