Hurray! Alarabiya writes:
Israel said on Monday it had started rounding up African migrants in the first stage of a controversial “emergency plan” to intern and deport thousands deemed a threat to the Jewish character of the state.
Israel Radio reported that dozens of Africans, mainly from South Sudan, had already been detained in the Red Sea resort of Eilat, including mothers and children.
“This is only a small group of the infiltrators,” Interior Minister Eli Yishai said. “I’m not acting out of hatred of strangers but love of my people and to rescue the homeland.”
The goal is to repatriate all the estimated 60,000 African migrants, whose growing numbers are seen by many Israelis as a law and order issue and even a threat to the long-term viability of the Jewish state…
Israeli human rights and activist groups back the Africans. But rightwing and religious parties say that if they are not stopped today’s 60,000 will become 600,000 in a few years, in a population of 7.8 million.
Poor south Tel Aviv residents say affluent north Tel Aviv Jews can afford to be liberal, because the Africans are not in their back yard. An opinion poll last week showed 52 percent of Israelis agree that the Africans are “a cancer”.
This truly brings joy to my heart. If other countries take Israel’s example, then perhaps Africa will be forced to solve its own problems instead of pawning it’s refugees off on the rest of the world.
As for Alarabiya, I couldn’t help but notice the subtle hint that they do not support Israel in this endeavor. Look at the photo they inserted into the article:
An image of an anonymous little girl is media code for “innocent and harmless”. It would have been more accurate to show shiftless young men. If the hordes of African migrants were composed mainly of little girls, it would not be nearly as big a problem.
Africa is a very large place. The fact that these refugees bypassed the entire continent of Africa, and chose Israel as their new home, means that they have rejected Africa; they have made a clear statement, with their feet, that Africa is a failure. If some parts of Africa are not failures, then those are the places the refugees need to go. Africa should take care of her own. If she can’t, then something is wrong with her and we need to consider the source of the problem. Since it’s likely the problem has something to do African people themselves, non-African nations should prevent Africans from settling in their lands.
The article goes on to say that…
An opinion poll last week showed 52 percent of Israelis agree that the Africans are “a cancer”.
This is a harsh way of putting it, but I do wonder about the other 48%. Are they truly so dense that they do not grasp the danger of immigration from Africa? Most likely, they have adopted the “don’t know, don’t care” attitude of other liberals. They have no clue as to what large numbers of blacks do to a society, and they refuse to go to the trouble to find out. Either that or they wish for the destruction of their own homeland.
I wanted to point out that most, if not all, of the Israeli Jews who reject the Africanization of their country also reject the Africanization of the rest of the world. No, I did not do any surveys when I was there. But I know the mentality. Many Israeli Jews fled black crime in America and Europe. Contrary to what some people claim, there is no double-standard here; not all Jews are of one mind and the ones in Israel tend to have a better understanding of the concept of “nation” and how nations are lost.
