21. yes Israel has a large African population that are not all too well treated

like the African refugees that Israel is building detention camps for in the Negev? Like the refugees from Sudan that were forced back into Egypt despite pleading not to and after being held at the border fence for days with Israel's standing orders to IDF not to give them or allow anyone else to give them food and water those Africans?

Seeking Asylum in Israel

The number of African asylum seekers in Israel has grown substantially in recent years, now standing at roughly 60,000, mostly from Eritrea and Sudan. Israel has agreed to refrain from deporting nationals from those countries due to the risk they would face, but is pursuing a string of restrictive measures to stem the tide of arrivals. This past May, a nighttime mob attack took place against African migrants and their properties in south Tel Aviv, fueled by the state’s anti-immigrant rhetoric. +972 has tracked the unfolding developments and challenges faced by a status-less community under increasing pressure.

or are you speaking of Ethiopian Jews who were rescued and brought to Israel only to have Israels Rabbinical authorities declare to not be Jews however Israel's secular government said they were Jews the Religious declaration only causes problems if they should decide to marry outside of their ethnic community
