Israel and Jordan have agreed to a plan for 1,500 Jordanians to partially replace foreign workers from Asia and Europe to work in Eilat.

The agreement was signed on Friday, Israeli Deputy Minister of Regional Cooperation Ayoob Kara told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency. Until now, Jordanians with permits to work in Israel have been excluded from Eilat.


More permits also have been given e to Palestinian Authority workers to be employed in Israel. This would seem to be good news for the economy in the Ramallah-based regime, but leave it to the left-wing B’Tselem to find a cloudy lining in a silver cloud.

The organization claims that tens of thousands of Arabs from Judea and Samaria are “forced” to seek a living by working in Israel because the Zionist’ occupation stifles the economy, Ma’an reported.

Wages paid by Israeli firms are far higher than those paid by Arab employers.

  1. Wrong move…The arabs start with "innocent labor within Israel"…then they gradually move into acts of terror, while maintaining their claims of "discrimination, apartheid, genocide' expulsion"….Providing jobs to thousands of Gazans, did not prevent them to side with Hamas….and will not make friends among the "so-called-Jordanians (!) "….

  2. Israel is inflicted by insanity.
    If anyone isn't aware, it also allows tens of thousands of tons of cement to enter Gaza on a regular if not daily basis. Does Netanyahu or some fool in his cabinet think that this time this material will not go into tunnel construction?
    Israel is in desperate need of a dictatorship of sorts to sort out the myriad of problems confronting it. Democracy Israeli style can only lead to disaster.
