'Israeli society is infected with racism,' Tibi says after assault on Druse soldier

MK Ahmed Tibi, speaking about the Druse soldier who was severely attacked over the weekend, said, “Israeli society is infected with the virus of racism.”
“The extreme right wing has moral responsibility for the attack,” wrote Tibi, Channel 2 reported on Sunday.
Yinon Magal, a former journalist and Bayit Yehudi candidate for the Knesset, responded to Tibi saying mockingly, “Arab society is very tolerant of Jews.”
Referring to Tibi, Magal added, according to the report, that “those who glorify martyrs should be the last to preach to us.”
Razzi Houseysa, a soldier serving in the IDF's Golani unit, was attacked on Friday night in a nightclub for "speaking Arabic," he says, reported The Jerusalem Post’s sister publication Maariv Hashavua.
