Firing of Arab Workers Condemned by Israeli Politicians
Jerusalem Post – Israel must have zero tolerance for racism in the workforce, Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said Thursday, in the wake of a decision announced by Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni to stop the city’s employment of Arab workers renovating bomb shelters in the city’s day cares.
“99.9% of Israeli Arabs are loyal and want to integrate. There is a tiny minority that uses violence and causes terrorism and we must crack down on that but also integrate and bring closer the vast majority of Israeli Arabs. This is a key to our future here.”
