Police Block South Tel Aviv Residents From Cinemateque

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

Police blocked the entrance of dozens of residents of South Tel Aviv into the Cinemateque where a group of left-wing NGOs were discussing how to further assist the illegal infiltrators living in Israel.

The Israeli residents were protesting outside the Cinemateque where the discussions were happening, as they see the illegal infiltrators as a danger to their neighborhood, which has become a popular final destination for many illegals.

Numerous South Tel Aviv residents have reported being harassed by the infiltrators, crime has risen, and there have been a number of high-profile rapes, including of the elderly, committed by the illegals.

The residents view the NGOs as helping and enabling the illegals to stay in their neighborhood through money, legal advise, and general support.

Government Failure, NGO Support, Fan Illegal Migrant Flame

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

The past few days in Israel have seen a well organized protest campaign of thousands of illegal African migrants, mostly from Eritrea and the Sudan, on the roads, in front of the Knesset, and in a park in central Tel Aviv. The demonstrations, on behalf of an estimated 50,000 illegal migrants, is coordinated with the hunger strike of some 130 prisoners in Saharonim prison, who are slated for deportation to their home countries.

Meanwhile, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) representative in Israel Walpurga Englbrecht blasted Israel’s new semi-open Holot facility in the south, saying it is a detention center for all intents and purposes.

She’s right, of course. Israel is facing a major social and demographic crisis, begun in the 1990s, as local wars in the Horn of Africa began to result in poverty and hunger, driving out hundreds of thousands of people in search of work. This influx of cheap, illegal labor happened just in time to fill in for the missing Arab workers from the newly created Palestinian Authority, whose entry into Israel was being curbed because of rampant terrorism.

In a manner reminiscent of the illegal Mexican migrant workers situation in the American South West until about the market crash of 2008, Israeli business, especially agriculture, but industry as well, cultivated the illegal African migration.

She’s also selective in her view of the migrant worker crisis in the region. While Israel to date has deported some 13,000 Africans out of an estimated 60,000, all them leaving willingly, according to the authorities—Saudi Arabia has been forcibly deporting more than half a million legal migrants, against their will, back to their home countries across the region.

One of the reasons may be that while the Sudanese and Eritreans in the Israeli democracy enjoy the right to assemble and the right to demonstrate – similar behavior would land them in prison, if not worse, in The Kingdom.

Englbrecht was also correct in pointing out that Israel acted in a most unprofessional and irresponsible manner in its treatment of the influx of migrants. “The Israeli government awarded temporary shelter to many Eritreans and Sudanese, but for many of them their status is being changed drastically,” she told the Army Radio. “One of the problems was that these people have never been processed properly, to discover if they were refugees or employment seekers.”

Englbrecht said Israel had made a big mistake by not discovering early on why these Africans had left their countries, and why had they crossed three different borders on the way.

What she didn’t mention was the fact that, on top of mishandling the illegal migrants, as supply began to outweigh the demand for labor in Israel, Israel was also neglecting and mistreating Israel’s poorest citizens, whose neighborhoods were eventually invaded by a myriad unemployed, uneducated, downtrodden foreigners.

At that point, under the poor management of a succession of governments run by Labor, Likud, Kadima and Likud again, the true magnitude of Israeli suffering under the lawless rule of these supposed “refugees” was being swept under the rug.

An NGO named Eitan-Center for Israeli Immigration Policy, documented an astonishing history of official lies about illegal acts committed by Africans against Israel’s most defenseless population: the working poor and the elderly, by and large of Sephardi descent, were stuck, economically immobilized, in perpetual purgatory.

Can Jews Set Up Detention Camps?

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Sudanese illegal migrants marching towards Jerusalem (they actually ended up in Beer Sheva) in protest of the new Holot (sands) detention camp, Monday, December 16.

The new anti-infiltration law that was passed in the Knesset a week ago permits residents of the camps—mostly Sudanese and Eritreans—to leave the site until 10 PM each day, provided that they show up for a head count three times a day.

It makes it tough for them to reach any urban center. So now some 250 illegals are refusing to return to the facility.

I don’t envy Israeli politicians and civil servants deposited with the task of managing the population of an estimated 50 to 80 thousand illegals, mostly from war torn East Africa. The connotations are obvious and disturbing. And yet, all these poor, neglected people have been dumped on Israel’s cities’ poorest neighborhoods, turning the lives of local residents into a living hell.

It’s a serious problem, it has to be resolved, and whatever Israel does to alleviate the problem will look and sound terrible. On account of the “camp” part in the term “detention camp.”

The marchers carried signs, no doubt prepared for them by Israeli NGO activists, with Biblical verses about our obligation to treat the foreigners well, because we, too, were foreigners in Egypt.

Of course, one of the conditions the Torah places on the foreigner is to observe the law. Illegal infiltration would probably disqualify them for the accepting treatment advised by the Torah.

Vizhnitzers Shocked as Sudanese Workers ‘Violated’ Rebbes’ Chambers

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Vizhnitz hasidim were shocked on Sunday to discover that the secluded, sanctified room (known as the Private Tzimmer) belonging to the late Vizhnitz Rebbes, the author of Imrei Chayim and his son, author of Yeshuot Moshe, has been “defiled” by Sudanese workers, B’Hadrei Haredim reports.

With the increase in visits by hasidim clamoring to see the current Vizhnitzer Rebbe, the building, became too small to contain everyone, and that B’nei Brak community’s management decided to renovate the entire structure.

Nevertheless it was decided that hallowed Tzimmer, where the previous rebbes used to receive thousands of their followers and give them advice, would not be altered, and instead be preserved as it was during the life of the rebbes.

Now B’Hadrei Haredim reports that no one seemed to be in charge of the movements of the Sudanese workers who are roaming through the structure and have turned it into their sleeping area. And so they’ve chosen the sacred Tzimmer as their bedroom, threw down a few mattresses, among sacred books that are strewn about, and some say they even conducted their Christian prayer services there—although that part has not been proven.

The official owner of the building is London real estate tycoon Rabbi Chaim Moshe Feldman, who is the biggest supporter of the Vizhnitz movement.

A Paradox: Israeli Arabs vs. Illegal African Migrants

Thursday, June 14th, 2012
Ah, the tormenting mental gymnastics that the following paradox is causing Israeli leftists….Today (Thursday) in Kfar Manda, an Israeli Arab village in the lower Galilee, Israeli Arabs lost their cool, and had an all out rumble with the illegal African migrants who have been occupying the town after too much noise was erupting from an apartment of Sudanese.
For over an hour, Kfar Manda became a battle zone between the residents and the illegal African migrants, and the Israeli police had to intervene with force, — including the use of tear gas.  The Kfar Manda Arabs decided that they “had enough” of the Sudanese and decided to evict them all using bats, rocks and knives.  The Israeli police intervention prevented bloodshed, yet the police decided for the Sudanese protection to evict all of them from the village. (anwrs.net, rotter.net)

Here are some pictures after the rumble, the eviction of the illegal Sudanese, and a video of the police trying to clean up the mess.

The question is – how will Israeli leftists spin this story? They must sympathize with the Illegal Sudanese migrants because after all – they are illegal.  Yet its unethical to blame Israeli Arabs for their behaviour…

In fact, Haaretz is so embarrassed by the scenario they don’t even have the report on their English edition website, only in Hebrew.   Yet even in Hebrew, they try to soften the blow by headlining the article “Due to altercation, 100 Sudanese leave Kfar Manda.”  (Nothing about the eviction by the police).

I feel bad for the Israeli Arabs.  They have it tough enough as is without having to worry about the illegal African migrants occupying their town as well.

More on the illegals here.

Immigration Police Round Up Sudanese for Deportation

Monday, June 11th, 2012

Israeli immigration police arrest dozens of South Sudanese illegal immigrants in Eilat on Monday morning in a raid intended to curb the influx of unauthorized entrants from Africa.

At approximately 5:00 AM, immigration police raided a neighborhood which has become known as a way station for the hundreds of migrants who breach Israeli borders from the south.  Police gave the individuals time to gather and pack their belongings before being deported.  Eight South Sudanese migrants were arrest by the Immigration Authority on Sunday.

Last week, a Jerusalem court ruled that Israel could deport South Sudanese citizens back to their country.

The Knesset on Monday will dedicate special sessions to dealing with strong Israeli reactions to violence and theft brought on by the wave of Sudanese and Eritrean illegal immigrants, in particular in South Tel Aviv and the port city of Eilat.  Discussions will include ways to deal with the various classifications of immigrants – including opportunists as well as asylum-seekers – as well as Israeli violence against the migrants sparked by public outrage at immigrant conduct.

On Sunday, the Ministerial Committee for Legislation supported a bill to punish Israelis who employ or migrants and Palestinians who are inside Israeli illegally.

Though it is difficult to estimate how many illegal immigrants from Africa are currently in Israel, Ministry of Interior estimates, as of April 2012, 59,858 Illegal immigrants who were never imprisoned in detention facilities have infiltrated into Israel.  A fraction of those are entitled to refugee status, while Eritreans – comprising a whopping 34,000 of those – will not be deported due to the opinion of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees that Eritrea has a difficult internal situation and a forced recruitment and that Eritrean immigrants should be defined as a “temporary humanitarian protection group”.
