Once again Israel shows the way in dealing with illegal immigrants --- primarily by ignoring all the liberal wailing surrounding the issue:


<< JERUSALEM — Measures taken by Israel to stem a flow of illegal African migrants coming across its desert border with Egypt have had a dramatic effect in recent months, reducing the influx of newcomers to a trickle, according to recent government figures and Israeli groups aiding the Africans. >>


<< In a joint statement this week with Human Rights Watch, two aid groups said the Israeli army has been blocking migrants at the frontier, in some cases pushing them back into Egypt, where the groups say the migrants are at risk of prolonged detention by the authorities, abuse by Bedouin traffickers and forcible return to their country of origin. >>


<< The arrival of the Africans — about 60,000 have come to Israel since 2005, mostly from Eritrea and Sudan — provoked a violent backlash in Israel and posed a challenge to the government, which struggled to contain the influx, described by Netanyahu as a potential threat to Israel’s character as a Jewish state.

Living in limbo and gravitating to poor areas in Israeli cities, the migrants generated resentment among local residents. Angry street protests and attacks against the migrants in low-
income neighborhoods in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem triggered a government crackdown earlier this year. Hundreds of Africans from South Sudan and the Ivory Coast, where conditions were deemed safe enough for their return, were rounded up and deported. >>

Israel is a country founded on race. Many of their policies specifically delineate separation of races. You are surprised that they are not looking for homogeneity when dealing with immigrants?

Very similar to Hitler's conception of Germany then?

The Arab complaint of Zionism=racism is justified?

Jews are a "race"? Hitler certainly agreed with that one.

Israel is starting to look more and more like South Africa under Apartheid. I wonder how long it will take to organize a boycott and 'encourage' needed change?

I know the Chickenhawks and Tea-Baggers favor Apartheid, but when are the Liberals and Progressives going to speak up?
