Africans are a Cancer in Israel

Now, Israel has an Immigration Problem

Israel, for such a small country, a land made from immigrants, has its own immigration problem. The Africans are invading it, crossing the open border between Eqypt and Israel and other means. It is estimated 60,000 of them have crossed the border. Like the many Mexicans that cross the border into the USA illegally, so do the Africans. They take low paying jobs, crime rates go up.

The government has declared war on them. Members of its government have declared that they are a "cancer in our body". Netanyahu has declared the Africans a national threat to Israel. Most of the Africans arriving do so from Sudan and Eritrea. As government officials have stated, " We want to preserve the identity of the Jewish Zionist state". Many of the Africans settle in the Tel Aviv area and crime has risen. Rape occurs several times a week, usually on a white woman. Women are now arming themselves with Tasers. Many of the Africans are hard workers in the Red Sea resort of Eilat. They do the menial jobs for lower pay than locals would.

The African immigrants, like many south of the US border, pay coyotes or Bedouins to transport them to the border and past Egyptian patrols. Once inside Israel, many are caught and given a temporary residence card. Sending the Eritreans or Sudanese back to their home country is not possible. Sudan, is an enemy of Israel and Eritrea is a country with repression.

Israeli vigilante hate groups have also torched an apartment complex with mostly Africans living there and hate crimes have skyrocketed. Africans are not safe in Tel Aviv. Another method of deportation Israel is trying is to pay $1247.00 per adult to return to their own country voluntarily. They get the money and a free plane ride. The other choice is to go to jail and then be deported.

Israel also faces the increasing potential of having terrorists bribe the poor to carry on attacks within the country, or have trained African terrorists cross the border to carry on attacks.

      The width of Israel is about the distance from Oakland, across the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate. (9miles)No where near as long as Ca. Unchecked immigration is indeed a serious problem in Israel.

      Like a cancer it grows, so why was the problem allowed to start? Nip the problem in the bud so it won't grow. If they have so much border vigilance, how come they got in?. Don't get it, but better late than never. Here comes the UN condemnation for their bigotry, insensitivity, and above all RACISM!

      If Israel can not deport them to their home countries, they should just deport them into the Mediterranean Sea.
