About 200 people on Monday night rallied outside of the Bat Yam mall to "keep Bat Yam Jewish."

The demonstrators protested against what they claim is the "Arab takeover of the city" and the growing trend of Jewish girls dating Arabs in the city.

During the rally, the protesters chanted, among other phrases, "Muhammad is dead," "Death to Arabs," and "Arabs get out."

Right-wing activists from all over the country attended the rally, as well as MK Michael Ben-Ari and his assistants, Itamar Ben Gvir and Baruch Marzel.

A few hundred meters away, social activists from Yafo's Ajami neighborhood, members of Arab youth movements, and former MK Tamar Gozjanski demonstrated in opposition to the right-wing rally.
