Ultra Right Wing Provocations in Jaffa - Rifat (Jimmy) Turk did a great job

The ultra right-wing Herut party decided to provoke Jaffa today: during the night they put up posters and graffitti suggesting the transfer of Jaffa's Palestinian population and later today, the ultra right wingers of Herut came right to the center of Ajami, trying to suggest the same and handing out money to those who want to leave...
Rifat Turk, my neighbor, reacted in a great way, he took the money and handed it out to the people in the street. After all, Jaffa's poor can always do with some extra pocket money. Thus Turk turned what was supposed to be a rightwing political statement into an act in support of Jaffa's poor.
Fighting started. I'm a peaceful person, i don't think fighting can lead to any good, however, when provoking us in such a way, i really understand it is not easy to control oneself.

No, we won't put up with fascists creating havoc and provoking us. Yet answering provocations in a violent way, is doing what the provocateurs want. We should not answer their needs.

Obviously Kleiner was out to provoke, in order to get some headlines for his failing campaign.
We shouldn't give him those.
