Israeli justice minister accused of interference and incitement after video threat

Ayelet Shaked said she would post videos every two hours showing Tel Aviv neighbourhood flooded with asylum seekers while supreme court deliberated on law to tackle the issue.


Ayelet Shaked, Israel’s Right-wing justice minister, has been accused of judicial interference and racial incitement after posting a video on social media as the country’s highest court considered a new law on African asylum seekers.

Ms Shaked wrote on Facebook that she would post a new video every two hours showing how southern Tel Aviv had become “an official detention facility for infiltrators” until the supreme court issued a ruling on legislation allowing the long-term incarceration of illegal migrants.

She then posted footage that purported to show a black migrant attacking a local resident. In fact, the film depicted a scene from another country – possibly Turkey – rather than Israel, forcing Ms Shaked to remove the post and publicly admit her mistake.
