Video| “Who wants to feed a Bedouin ?”… Zionist family treating Palestinian children as zoo animals

The children's TV. shows star, Roy OZ, waves a cookie to two Bedouin children while talking to his children: "Who wants to feed a Bedouin?"

Occupied Negev (QNN)- A video footage trended on social media, showing an Israeli well-known children’s TV. show host with his family driving in the Negev desert and feeding two Bedouin children as if they were zoo animals.

The TV. shows star, Roy OZ (known as Roy Boy), opens the windows holding a cookie. He waves the cookie to two Palestinian Bedioun children while talking to his son: “Ariel, do you want to feed a Bedioun?”, he says.

“Let’s feed a Bedouin. Don’t you want to feed a Bedouin?” he repeatedly says to his children in the backseat.

The video provoked outrage among human rights activists and criticism against the institutional racism and dehumanization of native Palestinians by ‘Israel’ and Zionism.

The irony is that Roy Oz has made numerous children’s television shows and films, mostly focused on nature and animals.

Oz said in a Facebook post that the video was taken some five years ago during a family trip. It wasn’t clear how the video surfaced but now that it stirred controversy, Oz apologized for it.

Atia al-Asem, head of the Regional Council of Palestinian Villages in the Negev, lamented the shocking video, adding that the Bedouin children were being treated like “monkeys.”

MK Ahmad Tibi called Oz’s behavior “The lowest of human behavior, racist and despicable brutishness.”
