Lawmaker accuses government for Tel Aviv ‘lynching’

MK Dov Khenin of the Joint (Arab) List condemns the police beating of an Arab man in Tel Aviv, which he terms a “lynching,” and calls on the government to investigate it.

“I have conveyed an urgent message to the public security minister demanding answers for what appears, on the face of it, to have been a lynching in broad daylight,” Khenin says in a statement, “an assault on an innocent citizen by police solely because he is an Arab.”

He accuses politicians of emitting a “foul wind of racism” that stokes “an intolerable reality of violence.”

Khenin singles out Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for criticism over allegedly racist comments during the 2015 elections, and adds, “when the government incites, there are those who are incited.”
