Feeling the Hate in Tel Aviv


“What do you have to say to the Iranian people?”
“The Iranians are fucking assholes.  I hate them all.  They can go fuck themselves.”

“What do you have to say to the Iranian people?”
“I hate them.  I don’t like them.”

“What do you think about Obama?”
“Obama is a cooshi.”
“He’s a cooshi.”
“What does that mean?”
“Black Nigger.  Negro.”

Max Blumenthal and Jesse Rosenfeld interview young Tel Aviv residents about Iran, Obama, and right-wing laws limiting the speech rights of their Palestinian-Israeli neighbors.  The shocking responses reflect the deepening of racist and authoritarian trends in Israeli society.  This is the sequel to “Feeling the Hate in Jerusalem,” the video banned by YouTube, Vimeo, and the Huffington Post after topping 400,000 hits.  This video was brought online on 12 July 2009.  The text above is a short excerpt from the video.
