Thousands of African asylum seekers gathered in Levinsky Park in south Tel Aviv on Tuesday, for the third consecutive day of protests over Israeli government policy of expulsion. In a direct appeal to the Israeli people at a press conference, a representative of the African community called for a change in that policy, insisting that they are not the enemy.
The new policy of the Israeli government, arresting people, putting people in prison indefinitely has forced us to take drastic measures, he said. This was a very different decision to take. Our jobs are hard; our pay is very low. Many people in this community (are) very poor.
He stressed that the migrants posed no threat to the Israeli people.
The Israeli government is lying to the Israeli people, saying we are not refugees, that we are infiltrators and in search of work. The government wants the Israelis to be afraid of us, to stay away from us and not to see us as human beings.

they are mostly Islamic peoples and right now Israel is struggling to survive all the attacks and murders and bombs from various Islamic peoples. It makes zero sense for an Islamic person to seek refugee status in the Jewish homeland when there are 57 Islamic countries.
So, it is very very understandable that the Israelis are suspicious, to say the least...
These people look all the world like they are sent to Israel to infiltrate and weaken and possibly attack innocent citizens from within that small nation. Better to provide them with any emergency medical care and send them packing right away!
If Israel is to be a jewish homeland, they had better think about who they allow in. Ugandans have several countries to choose from. Israelis have only Israel.
It is the job of these illegals to prove that they will.
Israel has one of the most generous tourist and asylum programs in the world. Lying about their intentions in coming to Israel is not a good place to start.
I really wish government here would do the same thing for our unneeded and undesirables.
