Far-right group pickets Jewish-Arab wedding

Far-right group pickets Jewish-Arab wedding
Several dozen Israeli police formed human chains to keep 200 screaming far-right Israelis at bay as they picketed the wedding of a Jewish woman and a Muslim man in this latest sign of escalating fallout from the Gaza situation.

‘Death to the Arabs,’ they shouted, as several dozen officers, including Israel’s elite units, prevented them from storming the wedding hall in the Tel Aviv suburb of Rishon Lezion. No one was injured, but four protesters were arrested. They violated a court order not to approach the wedding hall by closer than 200 meters, the Times of Israel reports.

Among those gathered outside were also supporters of the couple, but the atmosphere was tense, as police thoroughly checked more than 600 guests. The mere possibility of this wedding had local media in frenzy in the current climate of anti-assimilation activism.
