Analysis of the events captured in this video: http://bit.ly/ilcourt On September 16, 2013, Israel's Supreme Court overruled an amendment that the Knesset tacked on to the country's Anti-Infiltration Law in January 2012. The amendment authorized the automatic incarceration without trial of all Africans who enter the country asking for asylum. Since the amendment came into effect, about 2,000 Africans have been jailed by Israel. The court now ruled that they must be released. The next day, on September 17, 2013, residents of South Tel Aviv, where about 30,000 African asylum-seekers already live, protested the court's decision.
