DAILYKENN.com -- Black Africans were bloodied as Arabs pelted them with rocks and gasoline-soaked items.
Police stood by and watched for hours, reports say, until intervening to rescue women and children.
Arab Muslims expect to be treated with dignity and respect when invading Western nations. They hold a contradictory standard when migrants invade their countries. To our knowledge, no one greeting the black Africans with "Welcome migrants" signs.
The media failed to characterize the attackers as xenophobic or racist. Those terms appear to be reserved exclusively for white people.
Dozens of migrants were injured last Friday when they were attacked by locals in the town of Béchar, some 1,000 kilometres south of the Algerian capital, Algiers. Our Observer says that despite the presence of police officers, it was several hours before they did anything to stop the violence.Please report typos...
Towards midday on Friday, March 25, dozens of people from Béchar began throwing rocks at an abandoned shopping centre where a group of migrants were living. The violence kicked off after a local resident accused one of the migrants of trying to rape a little girl. But no crime was ever reported to police officers, and according to a local journalist covering the story, no one has pressed charges for attempted rape in any of the town's police stations.
Most of the sub-Saharan migrants living in Béchar arrived in the city fairly recently from Mali, Gabon, Senegal and Cameroon.
The attack lasted for a few hours before the migrants were evacuated by security forces to neighbouring cities including Oran, Adrar and Tamanrasset, to the south.
