security guards choked him
JERUSALEM — An Arab Israeli diplomat once deployed abroad to push back against Israel’s critics says he was beaten by security guards at Jerusalem’s central bus station last week in what he believes was a case of ethnic profiling.
Ishmael Khaldi, 49, said he has filed a police complaint and is going public with his experience to bring attention to what he described as racist behaviour in parts of Israeli society.
“This is wrong. This has to stop. This is nothing Israeli,” he said, adding that he remains patriotic and proudly serves his country.
Within seconds, he said he was pinned down by three guards, with the angry leader placing his leg on Khaldi’s neck, shoulder and ear. He said the pressure was so strong he feared his neck would break.
“I screamed ‘I can’t breathe. I can’t move,’’ he said. The guards eased up on him after bystanders started screaming, but then a supervisor rushed to the scene and joined the others in holding him down. ...
This is an Israeli of Arab descent who became a diplomat for Israel through his loyalty to the Israeli state, travelling the globe fighting against BDS. But because he is the wrong "race," he recently found himself with a big IDF knee on his neck, as he struggled to breathe.
