The latest reason to boycott the Red Sea Jazz Festival | The Electronic Intifada

This year, however, there is an added reason to boycott the Red Sea Jazz Fest in particular—namely that also in Eilat, Israel is interning hundreds of African migrants scheduled for deportation. In mid-June, Israeli authorities began rounding up Sudanese refugees from across the country. And the internment center in which they’re being held is—you guessed it—in Eilat.

African immigrants have increasingly scapegoated in Israeli society over the past year, with politicians in the Knesset calling them “a cancer and an AIDS virus on the Israeli people.” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has joined the charge against the “60,000 African migrants, whose numbers are seen by many Israelis as a law and order issue and even a threat to the long-term viability of the Jewish state.” This language—that of a looming “demographic threat” to Israel’s Jewish character—is similar what is commonly said about Palestinians.
