Lapid lashes out at MKs for incitement against migrants

Yair Lapid lashed out Thursday against right-wing MKS for incitement, following a night of unprecedented violent disturbances against African migrants in south Tel Aviv. 
"I support arresting and deporting infiltrators, completing the [border] fence and stopping them from entering Israel and I believe human rights organizations should think first about the rights of the neighborhoods' residents," Lapid wrote on his Facebook page.
"But when I see a pogrom in the state of Israel, led by inciters like MKs Danny Danon (Likud), Miri Regev (Likud) and Michael Ben-Ari (National Union), I wonder from where these people draw the insolence to call themselves 'Jews,'" he continued.
"Regev, Danon and Ben Ari, together with the wild bunch who beat infiltrators on the streets of Tel Aviv, do not understand the meaning of Jewish morals, Jewish collective memory or the meaning of Jewish existence," Lapid added.
