Israeli Apartheid in action!

An Israel Candid Camera-like show decided to test Israeli reactions to anti-Arab discrimination by filming in a store with two planted actors – one macho looking Israeli sales clerk and one Arab woman in a Hijab trying to buy coffee.

The reactions of the people in the store are all amazing to watch – all become outraged, most scream at the employee in typical Israeli fashion and one seems to be taking an “it’s none of my business” approach, but with a twist.

EDIT: the person that sent me this sent another video to qualify. This post is not to say that there is no racism in Israel – I have previously written about how, unfortunately, this is not entirely the case.

    note that the Israeli coffee chain Aroma recently issued written rules to employees that Arab employees are not allowed to speak Arabic in front of customers, as it apparently makes the customers feel uncomfortable.
    unfortunately, there is plenty of that sort of stuff going on here in Israel.
