On Sunday, the cabinet approved a plan on Sunday to spend anadditional NIS 630 million on projects aimed at preventing Africanmigrants and others from infiltrating into Israel via the Sinai Peninsula.The plan approved on Sunday includes speeding up construction tocomplete a border fence with Egypt within the coming year and alsoincludes the construction and expansion of detention facilities to holdillegal migrants."Now [Netanyahu]'s talking about detention centers. It's too late fordetention centers! Where are you going to put 40,000 people? You canbuild a detention center for 5,000 or 6,000 people. Forget about adetention center. Only one thing: we need an airline! That's the onlything. Gather them up and tell them, the vacation is over!" said Ben Arion Sunday.The right-wing MK urged on the crowd, calling: "Now you are goinghome!" and "Sudanese to Sudan!"A crowd of Africans and their Israeli supporters of similar size gatheredin an adjacent area of the park, separated by a metal barriers and ateam of Border Police officers.The Africans and their local supporters chanted "Prison - No! Freedom -Yes!" in English and "Enough with the racism," and "All of us togetherwithout hate or fear" in Hebrew.Ben Ari, who currently lives in a West Bank settlement but grew up inSouth Tel Aviv, harshly criticized the Israeli counter-protesters,characterizing them as enemies of the state."I see them over there, those that want to destroy our country. I seethose that are preparing a welcome table for the millions of Africansthat are on their way here," he said.Tensions ran high between the nationalist demonstrators and Africansand their supporters, but did not escalate beyond shouting matches.
