Fear and loathing in south Tel Aviv - Haaretz
« La couleur de ma peau est devenue dangereuse »
By Gideon Levy | Jun.03, 2012
Shopkeeper Ellen Barhat hides behind the closed iron louver of her shop. Only a narrow crack separates her from the street. Only a few customers enter the shop, which in any case has hardly anything left to sell. The refrigerator door has been ripped from its hinges, and Barhat has already cleared away the fragments of the many broken bottles. Only the red bricks resting on the floor - which had been hurled into the shop during last week’s anti-migrant demonstration - and the gaping hole in the plasterboard wall remain as evidence of what had happened in the Hatikva neighborhood of Tel Aviv.
