On Sunday, a leader of the recent massive demonstrations of thousands of illegal immigrants declared, "we ended the strike, but we still continue the struggle." Evidently the "continued struggle" includes putting offensive images on the internet.

An image of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Interior Minister Gideon Saar was uploaded by infiltrators recently, showing the two with a  large swastika in between them.

Above the altered image are words calling the two the "Nazis of the 21st century," reports Yisrael Hayom. Another image shows Netanyahu looking out over the massive protest in Rabin Square, Tel Aviv, with a swastika on his forehead.

According to reports, the pictures were distributed online by an infiltrator from Eritrea, who describes himself on his Facebook page as living in Tel Aviv.

The pictures come just as a Ministerial Law Committee on Sunday approved for a first Knesset vote a law forbidding the use of Nazi symbols, or calling someone a Nazi. The law comes in response to neo-Nazi activity and anti-Semitic vandalism.

Last Wednesday, the protesting infiltrators moved to Jerusalem, where they surrounded the Knesset. Their previously declared demand to speak with Netanyahu and Saar was not granted. The request prompted Defense Minister Danny Danon to quip "they want to negotiate? After they get their passports checked at Ben Gurion Airport we’ll hear their demands."

Netanyahu responded to the protests last week by saying "I want to clarify: no protests or strikes will help, just as we have succeeded in completely blocking illegal infiltration, so will we firmly remove from here those that succeeded in entering."

"These are not refugees, those were are dealing with according to the international accords," added Netanyahu. "These are illegal work infiltrators and we intend to pursue the law regarding them to the end."

Saar similarly noted that "only a small minority of the massive community even presented requests" for shelter as refugees, adding "the decisive majority of requests are from job seekers, and not refugees."

The illegal migrants' protests are organized by leftist groups that attempt to create the impression that they are spontaneous.
