Brave Israeli journalist disguised as Syrian ‘refugee’ enters German belly of the beast

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 19, 2018

Invasion of Europe news….

He entered Germany to show how easily an Islamic extremist could get in pretending to be a Syrian refugee and he infiltrated the Muslim Brotherhood there.

See my earlier post this morning, here.

Now if we only had journalists like this one….

From the Unhived Mind:

Prominent Israeli journalist Zvi Jecheskeli, who went undercover as a devout Muslim, has revealed how easy it may be for Islamists to pass through Germany’s borders and become a “Syrian refugee.”

Screenshot (214)

Not just about Germany. He said of the USA: “The biggest revelations in this series are in the United States.”

Jecheskeli spent several years risking his life to film a documentary on the role and influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in the streets of Germany, France, Britain and Turkey. While the organization is legal in some countries and has affiliated political parties, its outlawed as a terrorist group in others, including Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. [The Muslim Brotherhood is LEGAL in the USA.—-ed]

Infiltrating the ranks of the Muslim Brotherhood is a challenge indeed, as the group is “known for its distrust” of outsiders, whom they would “never” allow a glimpse into their plans, Jecheskeli told Die Welt.

His five-part series, entitled “False Identity,” recently began airing on Israeli Channel 10.

The Israeli intelligence service, Mossad, kept close taps on Jecheskeli and wired him with secret cameras and microphones in order to rescue him in case of emergency.

The challenge was to find out whether a Muslim fundamentalist can legally enter Germany and make contacts with fellow Islamists. For his daredevil tour, with the help of acting and retired Mossad agents, he transformed into Sheikh Khaled Abu Salaam, aka Abu Hamsa.

“I wanted to talk about the dangers that Europe is exposed to by radical Islam. I am not bound by the codes of political correctness and can openly speak the truth,” Jecheskeli, Israel’s best-known expert on the Arab world, told Die Welt.

In his investigation, the 47-year-old journalist, who speaks perfect Arabic, shows how easy it is for the Islamists to smuggle followers to Europe, the newspaper reported. “All you need to get asylum in Germany is a Syrian passport.” And that proved to be as easy as pie.

[….]

“With Allah’s help, you are starting a new, Islamic life here,” the German social worker with Palestinian roots tells Jecheskeli while giving him advice on how to trick German authorities and bring his family to Europe.

Trump Administration cuts funding for special UN agency for Palestinian ‘refugees’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 18, 2018

International refugee industry heads are spinning as the Trump team has withheld funding for UNRWA.  That is the United Nations special agency that we have funded for more than 60 years that supposedly takes care of those who were displaced when the modern state of Israel came into being.

They should have long ago been resettled in other Sunni Arab countries, but their demand for a “right of return” to the land Israel occupies is responsible for the continued unrest in the Middle East.

yossi Beilin

The New York Times found one-time liberal politician Yossi Beilin to refer to Donald Trump as “ignorant.”   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yossi_Beilin

If they want a “right of return” then Christians and Jews can demand a “right of return” to all the places (they once lived) that have been taken over (through violence) across the Middle East and North Africa by marauding Muslim hordes.

As I said in a previous post on the topic—tell me at what time in world history were the lands of the world fairly distributed.

Believe it or not, the New York Times has a fairly balanced article on the subject once you get past the usual sob-story about a hungry ‘refugee.’  (Is this J-school 101: start with a sob-story to emotionally soften up readers?).

Here are a few paragraphs, you can read the rest yourself. Of course they found someone willing to call the President “ignorant.”

The United States, its [UNRWA’s] biggest donor, announced this week that it was withholding $65 million from a scheduled payment of $120 million. The Trump administration said it was pressing for unspecified reforms from the agency, while also seeking to get Arab countries to contribute more. [US taxpayers want to know why any of this is our financial responsibility!—ed]

[….]

The Trump administration’s move, which added to a deficit of around $150 million on the agency’s budget of nearly $1.25 billion, brought new attention to a sprawling agency that functions as a quasi-government in some areas of the Middle East and has courted controversy throughout most of its history. And it revived politically loaded questions about just who should qualify as refugees — and what is the proper role of the organization charged with caring for them.

The agency, known by the acronym Unrwa, was set up in 1949 to aid those who fled or were expelled from their homes during the Arab-Israeli war of 1948. Meant to be temporary, it defined refugees loosely and expanded that definition over time. One key difference between it and the office of the United Nations high commissioner for refugees, critics say, is that the agency routinely allows refugee status to be passed down for generations. Another is that it does not remove people from its list who have acquired citizenship in a new country, so the number always increases.

Further down there is an explanation about why Lebanon won’t give citizenship to Palestinians.

Very few have been granted Lebanese citizenship for fear that taking in so many Sunni Muslims would upset the country’s delicate sectarian balance. And many Lebanese have long argued that giving them rights and services would lessen the pressure on them to return to what is now Israel.

That is it in a nutshell! No country (either Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu or Shiite) wants large numbers of Sunni Muslims as citizens! 

Sunni Arab countries like Saudi Arabia don’t take them either, why…..

….because by leaving the Palestinian Arabs in perpetual limbo the pressure continues on Israel.

Read the whole story here.

In my view, it is this type of dramatic move by the Trump Administration that could finally force a resolution to the conflict. At least it is worth a try!

US taxpayer-funded resettlement agency has it nose (again) in Israel’s business

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 15, 2018

Many American Jewish groups are angry with the Israeli government because it is now taking steps to remove tens of thousands of economic migrants who entered Israel from Africa before it had built its great border wall.

If US private activist groups want to pressure Israel that is their business, however, when one of those groups is paid millions annually from the US Treasury it becomes our business what they do.  Of course it is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) I’m talking about. 

Why are we paying them a dime to take care of the refugees they resettle in the US while they muck around in world affairs?

Where is Congress? Cut them off!

And, let me be clear at the outset (before I get broad brush anti-Jewish comments). HIAS is first and foremost driven by its Leftwing view of the world (a borderless world). Just as there are Catholics (Lutherans, Evangelicals etc) on the political Left and on the political Right, so too are there Jews on both ends of the political spectrum.

HIAS is NOT working here on behalf of Israel! (I hear all the time from readers who say that HIAS is working for Israel!)

Israel is in the same situation the US is in with thousands upon thousands of mostly economic migrants (not refugees) who got in to the country illegally and if permitted to stay would drastically change the country, for the worse. Anyone in their right mind knows that borders cannot be completely erased if a country wants to survive.

The difference is that since Israel is smaller it will die faster than we will if they do nothing about people like these:

 

Jewish protesters

Protesters in front of the Knesset. So what do you think? Do you believe these people who got in to Israel illegally are going to be beneficial for the country going forward?   http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Activists-ask-Israeli-pilots-to-refuse-to-fly-refugees-to-their-deaths-533552

 

Israel is said to be planning to begin deportations in the spring and the International Left (including HIAS) is haranguing the Netanyahu government in hopes of stopping it.

Here is The Jerusalem Post to explain what they are doing.

They want Israeli pilots to not fly the deportation planes!

(That is one of the mean tactics the mean Leftwing learned from Saul Alinsky to go after those who will hurt first—some poor pilot just doing his job.) 

Amid growing reports that the government is planning to deport tens of thousands of migrants from Sudan and Eritrea to Rwanda in March, an online campaign has been launched to beseech Israeli pilots not to fly asylum-seekers to what many activists deem a death sentence.

The campaign, initiated this week by the NGO Zizim Community Action, calls on the public to send letters to the Israel Aviation Association and the Israel Pilots Association, which includes all the pilots in the country, to refuse to fly migrants to any dangerous African country.

According to the NGO’s CEO, Raluca Gena, the online campaign is the first step toward a series of activities against what they, and many other human rights organizations and Jewish communities around the world, are calling an immoral deportation.

[….]

Presently, approximately 35,000 Eritrean and Sudanese asylum-seekers live in Israel. Among their 13,764 asylum applications submitted since 2013, only 11 have been approved by the Interior Ministry as of July 2017 – 10 Eritreans and one Sudanese.

hetfield-at-ny-anti-trump-rally1

HIAS CEO Mark Hetfield speaking at anti-Trump rally that HIAS organized in New York last February.  Rep. Keith Ellison was a keynote speaker.  More than half of HIAS’s budget is funded (involuntarily) by you from the US Treasury.   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/07/11/updating-financial-data-on-refugee-contractors-big-bucks-for-humanitarian-work/

Outside of Israel, prominent leaders of the North American Jewish community sent a public letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday urging Israel not to imprison or deport tens of thousands of Sudanese and Eritrean asylum-seekers.

Rather, the leaders – who sent an initial letter regarding the controversial issue to Netanyahu in November – urged him to allow North American Jews to help resolve the matter.***

Signatories include Mark Hetfield, president and CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), the global Jewish nonprofit that protects refugees; Rabbi Jill Jacobs, executive director of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights; Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism; Jeremy Ben-Ami, president of J Street; and Nancy Kaufman, CEO of the National Council of Jewish Women.  [This is a who’s who of  American Leftwing Jewish groups.—ed]

“The government of Israel recently announced its plans to imprison or potentially deport tens of thousands of Sudanese and Eritrean asylum-seekers unless they leave voluntarily before April,” the letter states.

“The ultimatum follows a mounting campaign of escalation on the part of the Israeli government to pressure the roughly 38,000 African asylum-seekers remaining in Israel to self-deport. While Israeli authorities contend that the population in question – most of whom entered Israel between 2007 and 2012 – are economic migrants, HIAS and other rights groups argue that they are asylum-seekers and refugees deserving of protection.”

Israel does (or did) have a program where economic migrants who self-deported received a financial payments, but I don’t know if it is still in use.

More here.

***You should know that HIAS has been working with the US State Department to bring some of those so-called ‘refugees’ to the US directly from Israel.  The numbers are small so far (9 this fiscal year), but if you think this story isn’t about you, it is!

They aren’t planning to bring more of them to the US and other western countries, are they?

If Donald Trump dumped UNRWA it would be a miracle

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 29, 2017

Update January 6, 2018: Many good points in this op-ed at The Hill about getting rid of UNRWA.

Many of you may not know that the United Nations treats Arabs (so-called Palestinians), who lost the 1948 war with Israel, as a very special class of ‘refugee’ with their own very special UN agency called the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) and we pay a huge amount of your tax dollars to keep it going.

Islam expands

Why am I showing this map of expanding Muslim military conquests? Because if one is going to argue that the Palestinian Arabs have a “right of return” to the land Israel now controls, can we argue that Christians and Jews have a right of return to all the lands Islam took from them by military force? Yes!

These ‘refugees’ (it is debatable about whether they are even legitimate refugees) are not cared for by the usual refugee agency—the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)—but have their own ‘camps’ (not camps, but cities) maintained partly by you as a perpetual thorn in the side of Israel.

If Arab countries really cared about ‘Palestinians’ and peace, they would have long ago absorbed the Palestinian Arabs, but in fact they are more valuable as thorns in Israel’s side then as humans.

Here an opinion writer at the New York Post argues that the Trump Administration should end US backing of UNRWA—turn off the spigot from the US Treasury to the UN agency! (emphasis is mine).

As the UN General Assembly voted to reject America’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, US Ambassador Nikki Haley issued a stern warning: We’ll remember this the next time you come calling for more hard-earned American taxpayer dollars. Most nation-states called her bluff, leaving many to wonder what comes next.

If President Trump wants to use his financial leverage at the United Nations to strike at the heart of the anti-America, anti-Israel institutional infrastructure, he should look no further than the agency responsible for Palestinian refugees: the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.

By most definitions, refugees are those forced to flee their country because of persecution, war or violence. Nearly every refugee in the world is cared for by the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees, whose ultimate goal is repatriation, resettlement and integration. The exception? Palestinian refugees. [Actually he is wrong about the legitimate definition of a refugee, who must prove persecution, war and violence have been added in by the refugee expansionist movement.—ed]

Arab states insisted on a different definition for Palestinian-Arab refugees of the Israeli War of Independence — and a different agency to care for them.

Today, millions of people are referred to as “Palestinian refugees” even though the only home they, and in many cases even their parents and grandparents, have ever known is either a refugee camp or an Arab host nation like Jordan.

Rather than use the billions of dollars of international assistance provided since 1950 to resettle and integrate Palestinian-Arab refugees — just as Israel successfully resettled and integrated Jewish refugees from the Middle East, North Africa and the Soviet Union — UNRWA’s mandate has always been to keep Palestinians as perpetual refugees.

In truth, it’s not a refugee agency but a welfare agency, which keeps millions of people in a permanent state of dependency and poverty — all while feeding Palestinians an empty promise that one day they’ll settle in Israel.

Yet the United States remains the agency’s largest single-state donor.

There is much more, click here.

Even a serious threat (from the Trump Administration) to cut off the funding to UNRWA might cause the Arab world to “welcome” their co-religionists to come live with them ending the cycle of  Middle East violence that is always blamed on Israel.  (Of course, I know it won’t end all violence because the Muslim sects will be at each other throats forever, and Islam will continue to seek expansion of territory that they stole from Christians and Jews.)

Every time I see some Lefty Muslim apologist claiming that Palestinian Muslims should have their land (or some Leftwinger claims that the Native Americans should have North America), that it is only fair, I want to ask then at what point in human history can we go back to where everything was FAIR!  What is that magical date in history when the world’s population was distributed fairly?  Make them tell you!

Israel ready to deport thousands to Africa, UN furious…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 4, 2017

…but, get this: It turns out that many of the illegal alien/asylum seekers have been transported out of Israel to third countries.

I had heard rumors that we are taking some of those!

I just checked Wrapsnet and we did take 8 ‘refugees’ off Israel’s hands in October. (The November processing countries will be out in a few days and I’ll check again.)

Screenshot (57)_LI

That is the UNHCR Filippo Grandi glad-handing with George Soros, the leading architect of a borderless world, in 2016.

Here is how asylum is supposed to work:  migrant asks for asylum in the first safe country he or she reaches and it is that country’s problem to process the asylum claim and grant it or not.

However, the whole process has been skewed for at least 10 years (the time I have been involved, it could be more) by things like our deal with Malta and more recently Australia*** where we take their rejects!

Is it happening with Israel too?

Here the UN High Commissioner for Refugees says that in fact the UN has helped over 2,000 asylum seekers move from Israel and be placed in “third countries.’

This is just one more reason we must get out from under the thumb of the UN!  The only asylum seekers that are our responsibility are the ones who arrive on our border!  (We aren’t asking Israel to take some of ours!)

From Haaretz:

The head of the UN’s refugee agency says Israel is choosing to forget its own painful past and should treat its African asylum seekers more compassionately.

“The Israeli government’s decision to expel 40,000 African asylum seekers is of great concern,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi told Haaretz at a conference in Rome over the weekend.

[….]

The Israeli government approved a plan last month to close its detention center housing African asylum seekers from Sudan and Eritrea, and launch an expulsion operation in the coming weeks to deport them back to their homeland or another African state.

The asylum seekers will soon receive notices demanding that they either leave Israel or face jail for an unlimited amount of time. Israel is reportedly paying Rwanda $5,000 for every asylum seeker it takes in. Additionally, those agreeing to leave Israel will receive $3,500 and get their airfare paid. The move could cost the government about 1 billion shekels ($287 million).

[….]

Grandi says his organization has been talking with the Israeli government about African asylum seekers for many years, noting that the UN has helped some 2,400 refugees be resettled from Israel to third countries (i.e., somewhere other than Israel or their homeland).

Then there is a discussion about that dreadful other UN agency, UNRWA, that is specially designed to take care of Palestinians in perpetuity. Those ‘refugees’ are never resettled elsewhere in the Middle East (can you say rich gulf states like Saudi Arabia) so that the thorn is always there in Israel’s side.

Grandi spent nine years at the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, first as deputy commissioner general and then, from 2010, as commissioner-general. His term as refugee commissioner runs until 2020.

He defended his former UN agency for its work with Palestinians. “UNRWA is often accused of either perpetuating the refugee status of Palestinians or of exempting Israel of its responsibilities toward civilians in the occupied territories by providing services on its behalf,” he said. But the disappearance of the underfunded agency “would not solve the issue of Palestinian refugees – rather it would exacerbate it,” he warned.

More here.

I will bet the White House doesn’t know we are taking more Africans as ‘refugees’ who are really Israel’s problem.

Why are we taking any ‘refugees’ from Israel?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 13, 2017

This is another in my series of inquiries about why it is our responsibility to take ‘refugees’ off the hands of governments where those asylum seekers (supposed refugees) are that country’s problem.

(Is Israel taking any of our illegal aliens/asylum seekers?)

See my recent post on Russia, here.  Or, see the dumb deal with Australia, here.  And, I have been writing about this issue for years as it relates to Malta, here.

This morning I want to know why we took 38 ‘refugees’ from Israel in the first 5 months of FY17.  Whoever they are, they are not our problem?

(For background on the problems Israel has with illegal aliens, especially from Africa over the years, go to our category ‘Israel and refugees’ by clicking here).

This is the Refugee Processing Center data from Wrapsnet:

There are a lot of countries on this list that beg the question, why are we taking refugees from these countries where refugees would be perfectly safe!

 

One more thing President Trump’s State Department could do, is to stop using refugees in deals with other countries, something I testified about several times here (see #7).

Israel to raise the height of its border fence

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 17, 2016

The latest wave of Africans trying to break into Israel via Egypt are bringing ladders.

 

 

For new readers we have a category here at RRW entitled, ‘Israel and refugees,‘ although there has been so much news from the ‘Invasion of Europe’ lately we haven’t said much about the smaller invasion of Israel.

Here is news from Breitbart that could be used for guidance for Trump’s wall:

TEL AVIV – Israel is set to raise the height of its fence along the Egyptian border in an effort to keep out migrants, defense officials said Tuesday.

The fence will be raised an additional meter, making it six meters (19.7 feet) high. This follows an increase in African migrants entering the country over the past year.

The army said that a series of additional prevention methods will be put in place to reduce the number of illegal border crossings.

The current fence, which was built between 2010-2014, has been largely successful in preventing migrant incursions, the IDF said. In 2014, only 14 people made it across the border, compared with 12,000 in 2010. However, in 2015, some 200 migrants made it over the fence, often with the use of ladders.

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society hires grassroots organizer to get American Jews’ minds right

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 8, 2016

Her job is to organize the American Jewish community to “welcome the stranger,” in this case Muslims from the Middle East and Africa (because they have run out of Jews and Christians to resettle).

 

jennierosenn

HIAS grassroots organizer/lobbyist Rabbi Jennie Rosenn. http://www.hias.org/leadership/rabbi-jennie-rosenn

The Times of Israel has a very lengthy story on their new Vice President Rabbi Jennie Rosenn.   I encourage you to read it because it is very informative, but was virtually impossible to snip for some reason.

Rabbi Rosenn’s job is to try to bring around the American Jewish community to support Muslim refugee admission to the US.  The article says that some Jews (understandably!) got skittish after the Paris and San Bernardino terrorist attacks.

And, then they have to counter the likes of us (bigots, racists and nativists).

Here are just a few things new readers need to know about the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (they want to be called HIAS):

  • In 2013 they received a grant from the JM Kaplan Fund to write a $35,000 report about us.
  • They advocate sending the goons at the Southern Poverty Law Center after us!  Click here.
  • They lobbied hard for so-called “comprehensive immigration reform” (aka Gang of Eight bill) in the Senate.
  • In 2014, they re-branded and dropped the word “Hebrew” from their title and are known only as HIAS or HIAS Inc. now (what was that all about?).
  • Here we learn that they don’t want money and supplies for Syrians, they want the American Jewish community to lobby for more refugees to be brought to America.
  • They want 100,000 Syrians in here by the time Obama leaves office!
  • HIAS (no friend of Netanyahu) blasts Israel for attempting to close its borders and deport illegal aliens, here.
  • As one of nine major federal resettlement contractors*** they receive millions of your tax dollars every year to do this work.   From USASpending.gov: Under the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society they received just short of $135 MILLION from the US taxpayer since 2007, and then when you search HIAS there is another $59 MILLION there in grants and sub-grants.
  • They could not be doing this work without YOUR money.

Arab groups say Jewish contractor HIAS a big help in getting more Syrian Muslims admitted to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2015

I think my head is going to explode!

Why do big news outlets like the Washington Post republish such biased news from lazy reporters?

Here is an article written by Jacob Wirtschafter for Religion News Service (whatever that is) and published at the Washington Post that leaves one very large piece of the story unreported.  And, that is that HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), as one of nine major federal resettlement contractors, has a financial stake in the decision to admit large numbers of Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees.

Mark Hetfield HIAS

Doing well by doing good!

More than half of their $31 million dollar budget*** is from the federal government (you!) which pays them (BY THE HEAD) to resettle refugees.

They have every incentive to increase the number!  HIAS doesn’t focus attention on persecuted Jews and Christians/other minorities as a first priority, they help bring Somali, Iraqi and soon Syrian Muslims to your towns and cities.

And, how dare CEO Mark Hetfield now feign concern for Israel when he has been bashing Israel for years over the illegal alien problem Israel has been trying to cope with!  See here and here.

Here is the “news” about how happy Syrian Americans are that HIAS is helping get their people into America.

At the Washington Post:

LOS ANGELES — Advocates for Syrian refugee resettlement found unexpected allies as major Jewish groups have called on President Obama to open America’s gates to 100,000 asylum seekers from the war-torn Arab nation.

The American Jewish resettlement agency HIAS has launched a petition drive calling on Obama to resettle 100,000 Syrians in the U.S., and Reform rabbis pledged to make refugee assistance a key theme for High Holiday sermons and congregational activism.

Jewish American groups, saying they can’t be bystanders as the worst refugee crisis since World War II unfolds, are joining Arab-American leaders in a critique of existing policies, which have sharply limited the numbers of refugees settled in the United States.

The nerve of Hetfield now saying we should bring Syrian Muslims to America to ensure Israel’s safety! Why? Presumably just to pander to the American pro-Israel community when Hetfield has been a leading critic of Israel on the immigration issue urging them to let in more ‘refugees’ which anyone in their right mind knows will kill Israel.

HIAS President and CEO Mark Hetfield said the request for additional Syrian refugees is also a matter of ensuring Israel’s safety.

“The crisis in Syria threatens to destabilize Jordan, Lebanon, and perhaps even Turkey and Egypt,” he said. “This cannot be good for Israel.”

[….]

“HIAS has consistently called for more resettlement and pushed back against discriminatory rhetoric opposing the opening of doors to Syrian refugees,” said Omar Hossino, public relations director for the Syrian American Council in Washington, D.C.

It took 5 seconds to find this linking the Syrian American Council to the Muslim Brotherhood.

And, btw, HIAS was a leading activist group pushing the ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty bill in the Senate (we have many posts on their lobbying activities on these pages over the years).

If the US brings in 100,000 Syrian Muslims as HIAS is demanding, they will be rolling in the green stuff!  So come on lazy reporters, do your homework!

*** Have a look at the most recent Form 990 for HIAS (which re-branded itself and dropped the word Hebrew from its name awhile back).  It is a $31 million dollar a year supposed ‘non-profit’ group that receives 55% of its funding from the US taxpayer.  Federal grants total just over $16 million and that is to resettle refugees!  And they receive other funds related to their refugee resettlement efforts including over $500,000 in processing fees for loans (refugee air fare loan collections).

Hetfield pulls down a salary (and related income) of just over $300,000 per year and there are 5 other employees in the six-figure range.

Go here to see if HIAS is working in your city.

Israel will begin to deport illegal alien Africans

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 2, 2015

Israel is one of the only first world countries on the planet attempting to save itself from the onslaught of migrants demanding asylum after illegally entering the country.  Australia is attempting to save itself as well.  Of course, most European countries have their borders wide open, as do we here in the US.

By the way, one of Israel’s critics is the US refugee resettlement contractor—Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.

From The Guardian:

Israel will begin deporting asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan to unnamed third countries in Africa even if against their will, the immigration authority announced on Tuesday.

The assumption is that the third countries are Rwanda and Uganda, although Israel has not revealed details.

According to the interior minister, Gilad Erdan, the move will “encourage infiltrators to leave the borders of the state of Israel in an honourable and safe way, and serve as an effective tool for fulfilling our obligations towards Israeli citizens and restoring the fabric of life to the residents of south Tel Aviv”.

Until now, the state exerted pressure and provided a one-off monetary incentive for asylum seekers to leave voluntarily, but only if they signed written consent. Now the state will give them 30 days to leave; those who refuse will face a hearing to determine their indefinite imprisonment.

People in Holot, a detention facility in the Negev, currently requesting asylum will not be immediately affected by the new measure.

Mutasim Ali, a detainee in Holot who fled Darfur and is a leading activist in Israel’s African asylum seeker community, said the new policy was not that different from the current grim reality.

[….]

Eritreans and Sudanese are entitled to collective protection under the 1951 UN refugee convention, to which Israel is a signatory, because their lives would be in danger if they were sent back to their countries of origin.

An estimated 42,000 Eritrean and Sudanese nationals currently reside in Israel, of whom about 2,000 are being held in Holot. According to the immigration authorities, 1,500 left with consent to a third country in 2014 and 7,000 returned to their home countries.
