Skip to comments.UNHCR Blasts Israel: They Are Refugees, Not Illegal Aliens
Posted on 01/05/2014 4:43:24 PM PST by Eleutheria5
The United Nations on Sunday night criticized Israels policy towards illegal immigrants, as thousands of them protested in Tel Aviv, demanding that Israel recognize them as refugees and grant them asylum.
The UNs High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) released a statement in which it accused Israel of sowing fear and chaos among the illegal aliens who, it said, should be referred to as asylum seekers and not infiltrators.
We demand that the government examine the asylum requests of the foreigners, and stop the large-scale arrests in south Tel Aviv, said the UN agency, adding that while it supported the holding facility for infiltrators in southern Israel, it was not acceptable in its present form as the agency deemed it to be a long-term detention center.
Infiltration from Africa has been a major problem for Israel over the past several years, as tens of thousands have entered Israel trying to find work and have settled in working class neighborhoods in southern Tel Aviv, Eilat and many other cities.

Majority of American Jews support amnesty for illegal immigrants in the US, now they have a cow with illegal immigrants in their sacred homeland. Treat Israel the way American Jews treat the US.
Lol. What's good for the goose...
Israel can pass whatever law it wants. However rational human beings will migrate away from miserable poverty and chaos and toward lands of prosperity and stability despite borders or laws. Also while it is politically incorrect to state, Africans, despite claims of racism ,wish to live among Caucasians because they know their lives will be better.
Just people on vacation. They should go home, clean the refrigerator, mow the lawn, and wash the car. They need to pick up their lives. Elsewhere.
Israel had better deport the “tens of thousands” before they become hundreds of thousands and then millions. These aren’t “immigrants”; they’re invaders.
