TEHRAN (Tasnim) – An Israeli television network’s live broadcast of a Palestinian man being violently beaten by a Zionist mob amid the ongoing violence by the regime has drawn massive condemnation on social media.
Footage from Wednesday evening showed a man being dragged from his car, beaten and set upon by dogs in Bat Yam, Tel-Aviv, and was aired live by state broadcaster Kan.
While the violence was broadly condemned on social media, many commentators focused on the fact that Kan, the Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation, aired the horrifically violent footage live on national television.
One Twitter user labeled the Israeli media “incorrigible perverts” for “showing (the) mob lynching of an Arab live on national TV.” He added that it reminded him of scenes he had seen on Indian TV.
Another commentator said that Israel is the only place where you can watch someone being dragged from their car and lynched by a crowd of hundreds on live TV.
Others hit out at the Western media organizations that had highlighted Kan’s broadcast of the lynching. One suggested that AFP, a leading global news agency which drew attention to Kan’s decision to air the lynching, was “infected by fake news” and that it “supports (the) largest socialist #organizedcrimesyndicate (in the) world.”
“At what point do we say Israel has a white supremacy problem?” another person tweeted, adding that this brazen violence on a ‘non-white’ man took place “in FULL VIEW of a TV camera.”
Wednesday’s disturbing footage comes amid escalating violence by Israeli forces against Palestinians.
