The Lynch No-One Will Investigate

On Monday, a Palestinian went on a killing spree in the bus terminal of Beersheba, the largest city in the south of Israel.

Someone mistakenly took Habtom Zerhom, an Eritrean citizen working in agriculture in Israel, as a terrorist, and shot him. He was not killed, but a frenzied mob, some of them workers at stalls in the terminal, perpetrated a horrendous lynch  as he lay wounded and murdered him.

Here’s a link to an op-ed about the the event and its implications:,7340,L-4714059,00.html
