Ben-Ari: Israel Caused “Slaughter” in Africa for Money

June 05, 2013 / Gilad Atzmon

Right-wing Israeli politician Michael Ben-Ari accuses the Israeli government of causing the “slaughter” of African people, and of doing so because the state financially benefitted from it. He then accuses other world super-powers of the same crimes, of selling weapons that are used to destroy the lives of millions of innocent African people. Ben-Ari is one of the Israeli politicians that has led a campaign to vilify and expel the tens of thousands of African asylum-seekers who have migrated to the country in recent years, fleeing the armed conflict in their home countries that he here admits Israel is at least partially responsible for.
