VIDEO: Is Israel Denying Asylum to Jewish African Refugees Because They Are Black?

Since 2009, 17,778 Africans, mostly Jews, have applied for asylum in Israel seeking refuge in the Jewish state. Only 45 of these applicants have been granted refugee status, as most applications have been denied & withdrawn or imprisoned in the Negev Desert allegedly on the basis of being Black.

    African migrants clash with Israeli soldiers after they left Holot detention center in southern Israel and walked towards the Border with Egypt near the southern Israeli Kibbutz of Nitzana. In a report issued Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014, Human Rights Watch says Israeli authorities have coerced almost 7,000 Eritrean and Sudanese to return to their homes, where they may face serious abuse.

    BEIRUT — Amnesty International released its “The State of the World’s Human Rights” on Wednesday. In the report, the NGO asserts that Israel has denied the rights for fair determination of African asylum seekers and held more than 2,000 African asylum seekers in indefinite detention in a prison in the Negev Desert in 2014.

    “None of it is surprising,” said Rania Masri, associate director of the Asfari Institute for Civil Society and Citizenship in Beirut, to MintPress News.

    “I think this is what we need to recognize. The moment there’s a state that’s built on supremacy of one community [Israeli Jews] on another [Palestinians], then it becomes natural for that community that claims supremacy to also discriminate within itself.”



    One case currently being investigated features allegations that the state of Israel deliberately attempted to reduce birth rates among its Ethiopian citizens, presumably because they are black.

    Ethiopian-Israeli women have accused Israel of injecting Ethiopian women with Depo-Provera, a long-lasting contraceptive, against their will. Hedva Eyal, who currently works with a women’s rights research group in Haifa, Israel, first made the allegations in 2009. The allegations resurfaced with potent vigor in 2012, following the release of a documentary by Gal Gabai, an Israeli journalist at Educational TV.

    Knesset member Penina Tamanu-Shata, the first Ethiopian-born female to hold office in Israel, said of the allegations: “The community is worried and upset over the question whether it’s possible that someone didn’t want Ethiopian children, and whether there was a systematic policy of exploiting the distress of women who were in transit camps en route to Israel.”

    The Israeli Health Ministry has since launched an investigation into the controversial practice.

    “It’s pure racism,” Masri told MintPress. “It breaks up this mythology of Jews of different colors and of different backgrounds. It’s nonsense.”

    “I mean, a religion can never be a nation,” she said.

    In December 2014, the Knesset enacted the Law for Prevention of Infiltration and Ensuring the Departure of Infiltrators from Israel, which authorizes the automatic detention of refugees and asylum seekers for three months at the Saharonim Prison in the Negev Desert, if they can not be deported. Those “already in Israel, as well as new arrivals (following their three months of detention) can be detained at the Holot detention centre for 20 months.”

    The law originated in the 1954 Prevention of Infiltration Law, enacted just five years after the Knesset was established and the new state was born. The law was intended to prevent attacks on citizens inside the country and to keep Palestinians, which it described as “infiltrators,” out of Israel.

    The law defines “infiltrators” as any citizen, resident or visitor of a neighboring Arab state, as well as any Palestinian citizen who “left his ordinary place of residence in an area which has become a part of Israel for a place outside Israel.” And it allows Israel to imprison, fine, and deport anyone who fits the above description.

    Michael Omer-Man, the managing editor of +972 Magazine, a news website based in Israel and Palestine, wrote that the legislation was “intended to stop Fedayeen [Palestinian nationalist fighters] sneaking into Israel.” Yet it also “created a legal mechanism for preventing the return of Palestinian refugees in direct contravention of the spirit of the [1951 U.N.] Refugee Convention, which ironically, Israel ratified the same year in 1954.”

    The December legislation now defines African refugees as “infiltrators,” reflecting the racist sentiments increasingly held by the Israeli public, politicians and media since the mid-2000s.

    Amnesty International reports:

    “Asylum seekers were prohibited by law from taking paid work and had little or no access to health care and welfare services. Meanwhile, the authorities pressured many to leave Israel ‘voluntarily’ under a process that paid them to withdraw their asylum claims and return to their home countries or travel to third countries. More than 5,000 Eritrean and Sudanese nationals were reported to have accepted ‘voluntary return’ in the first 10 months of the year, some leaving after facing imminent risk of detention, despite fears that they faced persecution or torture in the countries from which they had fled.”

     

    Where did it all start?

    In a revealing article about the origins of Israel’s racist policies toward African migrants, Omer-Man wrote last January that the country’s stance toward African refugees and asylum seekers started taking its current form in 2006, after Egyptian policed killed 26 Sudanese migrants who had been camping outside of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ office in Cairo for three months.

    Following this attack, about 1,000 migrants — mostly Sudanese — crossed the Sinai Desert and entered Israel. Omer-Man wrote, “Although the first asylum seekers came in small and demographically inconsequential numbers, the Jewish state quickly began shaping its perception of the new arrivals as a crisis that threatened its ethnic identity, and started looking for solutions.”

    In September 2007, Israel’s Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit responded to the rise in refugee numbers and the crisis in Darfur, Sudan, by saying, “Israel, with its history, must offer assistance.” The history Sheetrit was referring to was the country’s status as “a state founded by and for refugees,” wrote Omer-Man. There were about 1,700 Sudanese refugees in Israel at that time.

    Behind the scenes, however, Israel was looking for ways to avoid accepting the influx of migrants. A WikiLeaks document from 2007 reveals that Israel’s foreign ministry only wanted to accept 1,500 refugees annually, yet 400 to 500 were arriving each month.

    Referencing another WikiLeaks document, Omer-Man shows that Israel was attempting to create an agreement with Egypt to “accept the return of all future Sudanese asylum seekers who transited Egypt en route to Israel — with an Egyptian promise not to send them to an uncertain fate in Sudan — and an expectation that Israel would grant refugee status to some of the Sudanese from Darfur that are already in Israel.”

    This plan never panned out, and there isn’t any evidence to suggest that Egypt made an agreement with Israel regarding African refugees.

    Israel had also started resorting to what has been termed “hot returns,” in which border agents turned asylum seekers away upon arrival. The “hot return” policy violates the principle of non-refoulement enshrined in the 1951 Refugee Convention, “which is a refugee’s right not to be returned to a country where he or she will face persecution or to a country that will return him/her to the place of persecution.”

    Meanwhile, politicians and the media were starting to take note of the growing presence of African refugees in Israel. The UNHCR had been tasked with determining the status of these migrants up until mid-2009, when Israel’s interior ministry took over.

     

    Failure

    African refugees sit on the ground behind a border fence after they attempted to cross from Egypt into Israel as Israeli soldiers stand guard near the border with Egypt, in southern Israel.

    The astounding failure of the Israeli government to address the needs and rights of African refugees and asylum seekers came to light this week, when official state statistics showed that from 2009 to 2015 only four out of 5,573 Sudanese and Eritrean asylum seekers were granted refugee status in Israel. Those four are all Eritrean; no one from Sudan has been granted refugee status.

    In January 2014, the UNHCR estimated that as many as 53,000 refugees were living in Israel. The majority them were from Eritrea (36,000) and Sudan (14,000). These figures are in stark contrast to the number of documented refugees in the country, which the Israeli government revealed on Feb. 16 to be 17,778.

    Shockingly, only 45 of the 17,778 applicants for asylum from 2009 to 2015 were granted refugee status. The majority of applications — 68.5 percent — have been denied or withdrawn, while the remaining 31.25 percent have not been answered.

    For some perspective, worldwide 56 percent of Sudanese asylum seekers and 84 percent of Eritrean asylum seekers “received refugee status or extended protection in the first half of 2014, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR),” Ben Norton wrote in a recent piece for Mondoweiss, a progressive Jewish news website based in the United States.

    These figures and sentiments fuelling them haven’t gone unnoticed in Israel. A poll conducted in March 2014 revealed that 95 percent of Israeli society believes racism is a problem. Haaretz reported: “Asked which groups of Israelis – if any – experience racism the most, the vast majority, some 79 percent of respondents, answered Israelis of Ethiopian origin. Some 68 percent, meanwhile, said Israeli Arabs, 41.8 percent said Haredi Jews, and 34 percent said Mizrahi Jews and immigrants from the former Soviet Union.”

      I can’t say I blame the Israelis. These people multiply like rabbits and never seem to achieve self sufficiency. Israel should not have to pay for that. Compare an Israeli to a Palestinian. Which really, on the whole, behaves in a more civilized manner? In Mongrel-america, some of these refugees are defecating in open spaces, on floors, etc., raping sweet, innocent children, etc. They are vile.

      @Delilah re “The people who are trying to get into Israel now are fake converts”

      Of
      course the article is deliberately misleading and confuses the
      Ethiopian Jewish community that has almost completely moved to Israel
      with African migrants, but the African migrants trying to get into
      Israel now aren’t even “fake converts”, they aren’t Jewish at all and
      never even claimed to be. Most are Christians and Muslims from Eritrea
      and Sudan, as well as other parts of Africa. Some of them may be
      legitimate refugees fleeing political persecution, war or discrimination
      in their home countries; many others, however, are simply seeking
      economic opportunity in Israel. Most of Europe is also facing an influx
      of African migrants and refugees and trying to stem the tide just as
      Israel is. That said, however, Israel should have a better system for
      determining who is an actual legitimate refugee and deserving of asylum
      and grant refugee status (temporary or permanent) to more of those who
      truly deserve it. The way it stands now, those migrants coming from
      places like Eritrea or Sudan who arrive in Israel now get a conditional
      protected status that prevents them from deportation but they must be
      registered with the police and are forbidden from working.

      “there are people in Ethiopia who, for a fee will teach people who want
      to immigrate to Israel how to answer questions to prove that they are
      jewish, once they get into Israel they continue practicing their own
      religion.”

      There
      are the so-called remnants of the Falash Mora still in Ethiopia. These
      are descendants of Ethiopian Jews whose ancestors converted to
      Christianity a couple of hundred years ago, many of them are related to
      the Ethiopian Jews in Israel. Those who can prove they have close family
      members living in Israel can be approved to move to Israel on the basis
      of family reunification whether or not they officially readopt Judaism,
      others have “converted back ” to Judaism in Ethiopia and then move to
      Israel where they continue to keep it in Israel too; others have
      returned to Christianity in Israel. It’s hard to know who is who. If
      they have close family still in Israel, they should be allowed to move
      here on a case-by-case basis, but sometimes families have been split up
      and there is a lot of confusion and bureaucracy. This can plague all
      immigrants, however. The article is still deliberately misleading and
      intentionally confuses the issue of black African asylum seekers and
      migrants with black Jews from Ethiopia (who never even needed to apply
      for “refugee” status in Israel, because as Jews they were entitled to Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return.)

          Ayelet Shaked never said that “the mothers of all Palestinians should be killed”, but that Palestinian terrorists s were snakes and it’s too bad their mothers didn’t die before they were born. It is hard to argue with that logic.

          Yes, religious Jews believe they are “chosen”. That means they were think there is a contract between them and the Deity to observe religious Jewish law, 613 commandments enumerated int the Torah, stuff like remembering the Sabbath to keep it holy, eating only kosher food, not mixing wool and flax, and not muzzling your ox while you’re threshing. Religious Jews who believe in the Torah think that Jews—and only Jews–were chosen for this….not the members of the non-Jewish nations –in other words the goyyim are exempt from observing these 613 commandments and the Jews, being chosen, have a duty to uphold them. (The word “goyyim” simply means “nations”, and a goy in today’s parlance means a non-Jew, so you are a goy and there is nothing hateful or insulting about my pointing out this fact.Of course, since I am an agnostic Jew, I don’t believe in any “god” so of course I don’t believe in any idea of the Jews being chosen for keeping any commandments. I like eating my non-kosher food and violating the Sabbath, and one day I hope to muzzle my ox while threshing as I wear a garment made of wool and flax. Netanyahu, by the way, is as irreligious as they come, so it’s clear that he doesn’t believe in any idea of a “chosen people”.

          And of course any goy can become “chosen” by converting to Judaism and undertaking the obligation to observe the 613 commandments, so even though the idea that there is a god and he/she/it chose the Jewish people to keep these 613 commandments is ridiculous and false, there is nothing racist about the idea. Capisce? No, I don’t suppose you do, because although there are many smart goyyim, you’re one of the really stupid ones.

            What sort of fools are they hiring for hasbara trolls? It’s a bit stupid to try to deny public statements, joo-boy.

              Hasbara means “explaining”. Only the terminally stupid b would think it’s an insult to accuse someone of explaining things. Proud supporters of Israel like me are not “hired” to voice their opinions.

              As I said, religious Jews (I am not a religious person) believe that the Jews are chosen to observe “god’s” law and that’s the entirety of what “chosen people” means and has ever meant in Jewish tehology. In my personal opinion as a secular , atheistic/agnostic Jew, one who does not believe in “god” (if such a thing could be proven to exist)there is no such thing as a chosen people because there is no such thing as a god, but there’s nothing offensive or racist about said belief. It’s certainly much less offensive than the Jesuscultists who think that humanity can only gain salvation through a accepting as a saviour a crucified Jewish hairy fairy who you goyyim call Jesus. Zionism, of course, is the movement that enabled the Jews, which are primarily a national group, to gain an independent state in their own homeland and applies to Jews who are religious or non-religious. That’s all that Zionism is. Backwards, racist hate-filled bigots like you have a problem with that, I guess. Too bad for you. You’ll just have to continue smelling our shoes! 🙂

When I see a thing like you LIE I will answer your lie and eviscerate you point by point when I feel like it and I have the time. Do you actually think I can be intimidated by something like you? Because Zionism exists, BECAUSE Jews don’t fear things like you, we will speak as we please. The man with the mustache whose picture you love to post ordered Jews’ books to be burnt, like generations of his fellow Europeans burnt Jewish books centuries before. He did so on racial-hatred grounds, whereas the Jesuscultist fanatics before him did so because they thought Jewish religious books defamed the hairy fairy that they worshiped. In any case, now we live in an age of Zionism. When a Jew is abused, we stand up and don’t cower in fear because of dismal, hateful freaks like you. Too bad for you if you can’t tolerate it.

Now we live in an age of Zionism, and this will never happen again as we are once again a free strong nation in our own homeland. The days of Jewish victimhood are forever ended, to your chagrin.

                        Judaism is a criminal cartel, which
                        uses “religion” and “ethnicity” as a screen
                        disposable supply of Jewish sheeple as a buffer.

                        Overy the last 3000+ years, the
                        Jews have been banished from countries more than 100 times. They claim it is
                        because they are “different” and are “persecuted”. Which,
                        in a way, is true……….

                        Jews refuse to accept the cultural
                        and legal norms of the society in which they find themselves. A huge percentage
                        of Jews live by treachery, corruption, perversion and barbarity. In EVERY
                        banishment where I was able to find an account NOT WRITTEN BY JEWS, there is a
                        back-history of Jewish crime leading up to the banishment.

                        Many
                        of the terms of the Treaty of Versailles were dictated by the Rothschild
                        Bankster Cartel. Those terms allowed the banks of that cartel to, effectively,
                        rape Germany. When Hitler began his rise,
                        bodies of starved Germans were being collected for mass burial because there
                        were no jobs, there was no money…………..Germany had been destroyed by Jewish owned
                        banks. The Rothschilds made the rise of a Hitler and the consequent attempted
                        genocide of the culture of the Rothschild bankstersINEVITABLE.

                        Just as the banksters and their
                        accomplices sat safely in London and New York, while millions of Jewish sheepl
                        died for the crimes of their leaders 75 years ago, the money changers that
                        Jesus is said to have driven from the temple steps, days before his death,
                        blackmailed Pilate into executing Jesus (Matthew 27).

                        Just weeks after the announcement
                        by John Kennedy, that he would abolish the Federal Reserve and put monetary
                        control back into the hands of the government, Kennedy was
                        assassinated……….and the assassin was then killed by a Jewish bar owner to
                        insure that Oswald was never able to be seriously interrogated.

                        The “holy” books of
                        Judaism and their modern religious and cultural leaders teach Jews that they
                        are a “chosen” master-race. The behavior of the Jewish leadership and
                        a large portion of the Jewish people bear out this delusion that they are, in
                        some way, “superior”.

                        There are, obviously, many Jews who
                        are opposed to Zionism and Israel for their own reasons. Their
                        arguments seem focused around points of “Jewish law” and they have
                        little to say about the crimes of their bankster and Zionist cousins.

                        Quotations from the Jewish Torah
                        and Talmud……………..

                        Sanhedrin 58b. “If a heathen
                        (Gentile) hits a Jew, the Gentile must be killed. Hitting a Jew is the same as
                        hitting God.”

                        A racist is someone who believes humanity is divided into biological categories called “races” and that certain races have advantages and disadvantages relative to each other, and therefore advocates discrimination, separation and segregation between these various “races” on the basis of that spurious belief. Nothing I have written here (or anywhere) indicates that I harbor such a belief. Clearly you are clueless and ignorant and have no understanding of what the simple word “racism” means. As to my being superior to you, this is quite obvious, but it has nothing to do with my thinking I am part of a superior “race” or any racist belief. I don’t even know what “race” you are — for all I know, you might be an Israeli Jews with a similar ethnic background to me. Since I am most definitely not a racist, I do not ascribe your inferiority, stupidity and lack of morals to your racial, ethnic or ancestral background, because your failings and inadequacies are entirely your own.

                        That’s right. I think “Robert Munro”‘s job is to smell my shoes. It’s a vivid expression of what a lowlife I think he is, as an individual, and the best I think he can do with is life, after he vomited out a non-stop steam of invective against Jews. Note that I didn’t make any reference to his ethnic background (I don’t know what it is, for all I know he could even be Jewish) nor did I say that non-Jews are only fit to smell Jews’ shoes. My telling the twisted freak Munro that it his job to smell my shoes in no way reflects the way I fee about non-Jews, nor does it imply any belief in the superiority of any one “race” or ethnicity over another (to the extent that “races” even exist). I merely stated that its his< job to smell my shoes. He doesn’t represent all non-Jews and and I don’t represent all Jews, and your assumption that my gracing him with the privilege of smelling my shoes was an expression of contempt to all non-Jews shows your essentializing mindset. I am of the firm belief that the best he can ever do is to smell my shoes. If I ever met him in person and knew who he was, he would literally have to do it. Moreover, for someone like him, the fact that we live in an age where Jews are no longer oppressed, where Jews are NOT victims, where Jews are not ghettoized, where Jews are not expelled (see how many times your fellow hateful cretin posted about the history of Jews being hounded from place to place and see how he longs for those days) is a humiliation to him, an
                        up-ending of the way he thinks the world should be. It’s like smelling Jewish shoes every day.

                        Maybe you will one day have this privilege too.

                        Again, to be clear, because you are an exceptionally stupid person, my stating that you are so exceptionally stupid has nothing to do with a belief that you were made this way because of your ancestral heritage, and my stating that “Munro” is at best fit to smell my shoes is in no way refelctive of my attitudes towards non-Jews. Capisce? I suppose not. (You’re stupid, after all.)

        • MikhaelMeir

          @disqus_xBNl9dsYxo:disqus re “YOU forgot that the Judeo-Nazi state forcibly sterilized Ethiopian Jews before allowing them into Greater Israel”

          Nope. Not one Ethiopian Jew was ever “sterilized”. *Several* (meaning a few, not all, not many) Ethiopian immigrant women from the Falash Mora community (a community of Ethiopian Christians who claim to be descended from he Beta Israel, Ethiopian-Jewish community and distinct from them) *alleged* (that means not proven) that they were urged to take Depo Provera by health care workers employed by Jewish Agency clinics in Ethiopia prior to moving to Israel. Depo Provera doesn’t cause sterilization, which means PERMANENT infertility. Depo Provera, however, is a long-lasting contraceptive administered by injection. Nevertheless, its effects are temporary, lasting a few weeks or months. The several women alleging this claim that they were not fully informed about Depo Provera’s long-term effects and were unaware that they were not able to get pregnant whilst on DP. At most, if true, the health care workers were negligent for not fully advising the women about how long the DP would last. But there is really no serious evidence that they failed to do so, other than the say-so of these women who felt they were forced to take the drug . But no evidence that they were “forced” to take it either. It’s possible that bad communication on the parts of the Israeli workers and the Ethiopian women caused them to misunderstand well-intentioned medical advice as a command, but it can’t be proven. Considering that all of the women who complained that they were steered to the Depo Provera (an entirely safe, and TEMPORARY contraceptive) got pregnant subsequently, the slander that Israel forcibly sterilized them should be put to rest but a lie on the Internet will never die and will always be believed by stupid people like you.

              Among the strongest Zionists in Israel today are proud Israeli Jews of Ethiopian-Jewish heritage. Approximately 180,000 black Zionist Israeli Jews whose families left Ethiopia in the past 35 years live in Israel today, whereas their number in Ethiopia circa 1980 was 50,000. Amazing how this “sterilized” group thrives and procreates in Israel to such an extent.

              Oh, and despite the fact that the articles you linked to are still distorted, not one of them makes the far-out and easily disprovable claim that Depo Provera, the drug that some of the non-Jewish Ethiopian immigrants to Israel claimed (without any proof) that they were “forced” to take , ever causes or caused sterilization.
              But you’re stupid and you don;’t know the difference between contraception and sterilization. .

                  Most Israeli citizens (including non-Jews, even Muslims) are proud of our defense forces and army who fight against the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror gangs operating from Gaza who target Israeli citizens living in their own homes. If the terror gangs would place their rocket launching sites, the thugs who fire the rockets, and the commanders who order the thugs to launch the rockets at Israeli citizens, AWAY from civilians and civilian-populated areas, then our Israeli DEFENSE Forces can accomplish the task or ending the lives of the terror gang members and their commanders much more easily and efficiently without endangering the lives of any Palestinian Arab civilians in Gaza. I highly suggest that if you are concerned about innocent civilian lives in Gaza, that you encourage Hamas and Islamic Jihad to distance their forces from civilian-populated areas so we can more easily and efficiently kill them without risking the harm to civilians.

                  SO far, Hamas and aother associated terror groups have killed more than 1,00 Israeli civilians through terror bombs in Israel in the early 2000s. Their crude rockets have killed and maimed dozens more, including children. Israel won’t tolerate any more of these deaths.

                  Ethiopia, were visiting their grandmother. They were playing outside the
                  house, on Haggai Street, under an olive tree, when they were directly
                  hit by the Kassam rocket. Suffering massive injuries, both died shortly
                  afterwards in hospital. About 30 people were wounded in the attack, for
                  which Hamas claimed responsibility.

                  • TecumsehUnfaced

                    You’re proud of this? This Wehrmacht thrust for Lebensraum?

                    It is this international exceptionalism and intentional blindness that throws me back to 1948 and to the period between June and October of that year. On 11 June, a truce was announced by the UN between the Zionist forces and the units of the Arab armies that entered Palestine on 15 May. The truce was needed for both sides to rearm, which benefited the Jewish side and disadvantaged the Arab side, as Britain and France embargoed the arms shipments to the Arab states, while the Soviet Union and the Czech republic re-armed the Jewish forces.

                    By the end of that truce it transpired clearly that the all-Arab initiative to salvage Palestine was doomed to fail. The truce enabled UN observers to see for the first time, at close inspection, the reality on the ground in the wake of the organisation’s peace plan
                    What they saw was ethnic cleansing at high gear. The principal preoccupation of the new Israel at that moment was to utilise the truce to accelerate the de-Arabisation of Palestine. This began the moment the guns were silenced and was enacted in front of the eyes of the United Nations observers.

                    By that second week of June, urban Palestine was already lost and with it hundreds of the villages around the main towns were gone. Towns and villages alike were emptied by the Israeli forces. The people were driven out, many of them long before the Arab units entered Palestine, but the houses, shops, schools, mosques and hospitals were still there. What could not have escaped the UN observers is the sound of the tractors flattening these buildings and countryside landscape, now that there was no clatter of shooting around them.

                    What they heard and saw was adequately described as an “operation of cleansing” by the person appointed by the new regime of the land to oversee the whole operation, the head of the settlement division in the Jewish National Fund (JNF), Yosef Weitz. He duly reported to the leadership: “We have begun the operation of cleansing, removing the rubble and preparing the land for cultivation and settlement. Some of these [villages] will become parks.” He proudly scribbled in his diary his amazement of how unmoved he was by the sight of tractors destroying villages.

                    This was not an easy or a short operation. It continued also when the fighting resumed for 10 days, at the end of the first truce, during a second truce and in the final stages of the war when the troops that came from Iraq, Syria and Egypt were retreating – wounded and defeated – back home. The “war” in the autumn of 1948 was prolonged because Palestinian villagers, volunteers from Lebanon and some Arab army units tried in vain to defend isolated Arab villages in the north and south of Palestine.

                    Thus, more villages came under the boot of the JNF and its tractors. The UN observers recorded quite methodically the dramatic transformation of Palestine from an Arab East Mediterranean countryside into a kaleidoscope of new Jewish colonies surrounded by European pine trees and huge water pipe systems draining the hundreds of creeks that flowed through the villages – erasing a panorama that can only be imagined today from several relatively untouched corners of the Galilee and the West Bank.

                    In the beginning of October 1948, the UN observers had had enough. They decided to write an accumulative report to their secretary general. It was summed up in the following way. The Israeli policy, they explained to their boss, was made of “uprooting Arabs from their native villages in Palestine by force or threat”. It recorded the process quite in full and was sent to all the heads of the Arab delegations in the UN.

                      Israel, like any country, has bigots and fanatics. Sometimes they give expression, loudly, to their bigotry. While this is nothing to be proud of, Israel does not deserve extra condemnation for negative social phenomena and xenophobia that exist everywhere, particularly when so many Israelis condemn it.

                      A quick YouTube search will reveal many shocking expressions of hate from Muslims and Arabs towards Jews; but because I am not a bigot, I do not condemn all Arabs/Muslims for the actions of those who act in a hateful manner, nor do I even condemn all of Islam nor all Muslims when some of them commit terror outrages against Jews, Christians, and even fellow Muslims in the name of Islam. I guess that’s because I’m not like you. (You know, because I am morally superior and smarter.) Again, my greater intelligence and moral superiority relative to you has nothing to do with our respective ancestral or ethnic background. Only racists and bigots would think that or assume that’s what I mean.

                        So far, I haven’t seen any indications of your presumed superiority, only of the flaming bigotry you so frantically deny. Only a bigot would be presenting 17 ancestors as a claim of value to be presented.

                        You must feel very insecure about your actual quality. You are always working furiously to construct a facade to hide it.

                        re ” you’re so obliviously proud of a nation ripped from the guts of the indigenous people”

                        Since I am descendant of the indigenous people, the country obviously hasn’t been ripped from the guts of the indigenous people.

                        If you are talking about Palestinian Arabs when you refer to “indigenous people” they had and still have an opportunity to found a nation-state of their own (which would be the 23rd Arab state first Palestinian-Arab state ever) alongside Israel, the only Jewish state. They rejected this opportunity in 1947 and again in 2000, although there is an Arab state (Jordan) that exists on approximately 76% of the original Palestine Mandate territory allotted to the UK by the League of Nations. Although I believe that the i effect Jordan already is a Palestinian-Arab state, with a majority of the population defining itself as Palestinian (even with a Palestinian queen) and existing on land formerly known as Palestine, Palestinian Arabs should be entitled to seek self-determination in a small state of their own in the West Bank and Gaza, where they are the majority of the population.

                        “so far, I haven’t seen any indications of your presumed superiority, only o flaming bigotry you so frantically deny.”

                        Well, you ARE stupid, so it can’t be expected that you would understand anything.

                        “Only a bigot would be presenting 17 ancestors as a claim of value to be presented”

                        I think, like every human being, I have far more than “17 ancestors”, and I never claimed to have “17 ancestors.” You have no reading comprehension ability, though (that’s a big part of your stupidity). Moreover, I never made a claim of “value” regarding the fact that I am descended from 17 generations in Eres Yisrael and never insinuated that this fact makes me a better person. (Although I am a pretty good person, definitely better than you, being superior to you is nothing to be proud of anyway. Most people probably are.) The relevance of my 17-generation descent from indigenous Jews in my country is to counter your bizarre and ludicrous claim that Jews are recent interlopers. Many Israeli families are similar to mine.

                      • TecumsehUnfaced

                        Again, you inoperative logic is on display. Just because you are descended from Arab Jews living in Palestine, hence indigenous like your Christian and Muslim neighbors, does not mean that the Ashkenazi European colonialists are.

                        You explode any appearance of logic in yourself by your silly pretense that the number of Arab countries, or any kind of countries, is at all relevant. Are you proclaiming that Arabs are homogeneous everywhere? Are you proclaiming that people living for hundreds of generations somewhere have gained no attachment to that land? You seem to have done an excellent job of tromping on your own silly claims for all Jews from everywhere grabbing Palestine.

                        Your yammer about 17 ancestors when you had already described them merely show that you were and are posturing again. Posture, posture, posture! It never stops. Your insecurity about yourself must engulf you.

                        Amazing, you never noticed my pointing out that 2-4% of the population before the savage Ashkenazi Zionist “aliyahs” of invasion was Mizrahi. Why wouldn’t they interbreed and keep records to gloat over?

              “Can I Become Pregnant After I Stop Using Depo-Provera?

              With Depo-Provera, you could become pregnant
              as soon as three to four months after your last shot. However, it may take some women up to a year or two to conceive after they stop using this type of birth control. This time frame seems unrelated to how long you had been using Depo-Provera.”

              • Robert Munro

                Yes, hasbara piggy, there is a 30% chance of becoming pregnant after the administration of Depo-Provera – which has been banned in most countries.

                • MikhaelMeir

                  “Hasbara” means explaining and teaching. It’s good to explain the way the world works to the stupid. Only the terminally stupid would think that it’s an insulting term.

                  Nope, there is no convincing evidence, not one scientifically vetted study, that has shown any case of Depo Provera ever sterilizing one woman.

                  The only country that has banned it so far is Zimbabwe, a backwards dictatorship, formerly the breadbasket of Africa driven into poverty by the demented but still power-mad Mugabe.

      The asylum seekers are not Jewish, that is why they must seek asylum. If they proved that they were Jewish, like the Ethiopians did, then they would receive their citizenship. There are no Jews in Eritrea or Sudan.

      Yet (black) African Jews must apply for asylum, which is routinely denied.

      • Moo

        No, this article is just poorly written. The Jews from Ethiopia were admitted, although they face racism now that they are Israeli citizens. The people from Sudan and Eritrea do not claim to be Jewish, they claim that they face political persecution at home. And of course they prefer being the clutches of the evil Zionists to being in Egypt, where they are routinely shot by the police, instead of being offered money to repatriate, as they are in Israel.

        • Robert Munro

          The Ethiopian Jews were forcibly sterilized before being allowed into Israel. One Knesset member stated that “Israel had enough blacks”.

        No. Black African Jews (nearly all from Ethiopia) automatically became citizens of Israel, just like the Jews from Europe.

        Non-Jewish Muslims and Christians from places like Eritrea and Sudan seek asylum in Israel (and many other countries, especially in Europe) based on political and ethnic persecution in their home countries.

    • Robert Munro

      The Jewish regime forcibly sterilized Ethiopian Jews before allowing them to enter Palestine. A member of the Knesset remarked that Israel was a white country and must remain white. Nobody in the regime contradicted him.

      • MikhaelMeir

        Not one Ethiopian Jew was ever forcibly sterilized. Not one. Not ever. Read above.
        Member of Knesset Eli Yishai (himself actually a son of North African Jews in Israel) was reacting to a clip of an interview with a Muslim African illegal migrant to Israel that aired on Israeli TV in which the African migrant declared “This country (i.e., Israel) is not for any white man.”

        The original clip can be viewed here, where an African Muslim migrant provocatively tells an Israeli, “You have no country” and “this land is not for you, this land is not for any white man”

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLwFk4CTBaI

        In reaction, Yishai said (his exact quote)

        רוב האנשים שבאים הנה הם מוסלמים שחושבים שהארץ בכלל לא שייכת לנו, לאדם הלבן. כמה מהם דיברו על כך בגלוי בטלוויזיה.
        “Most of the people coming here are Muslims who think the land doesn’t belong to us at all, to the white man. Some of them have spoken openly of it on television”

        Now, Eli Yishai may have erred in his belief that he knows what most of the migrants (many of whom are Christians) believe based on that one interview with that one idiotic illegal migrant to Israel. But he never said Israel is for whites only. Stop lying so much.

          They’re right. You’re just invaders that were led to conquest by a smuggled army of European colonialist thugs. You’re squatters, a most grievous affliction upon the Semite indigenous people you savagely assaulted.

          • MikhaelMeir

            re “You’re just invaders that were led to conquest by a smuggled army of European colonialist thugs.”

            It’s amazing how in Europe, Jews were discriminated against, ostracized and depicted as an alien, non-European, Oriental Semitic “Other” because of their roots in the Middle East and now that Jews have regained sovereignty in their original homeland the ideological descendants of the European ant-Semites who said Jews weren’t European excoriate Jews for being “European.” Of course, Ashkenazi Jews (who do, of course trace their roots here) are under one-half of the total Israeli-Jewish population. Most Israeli Jews are descended from Mizrahi-Jewish families (like yours truly) that have lived in the Middle East/North Africa/Levant region for generations. Also, Israelis from all of the different Diaspora heritages marry and have kids with each other all the time, so basically these communal differences between descendants of the European Diaspora and Middle eastern Diaspora are fading and literally very soon every Israeli Jew will be descended from a family that has lived in the region for generations.

            “You’re squatters, a most grievous affliction upon the Semite indigenous people you savagely assaulted.”

            Semite is a linguistic term. The national language of the Jewish people and the official language of Israel is Hebrew, a Semitic language (alongside Arabic, another Semitic language). Semitic peoples speak Semitic languages or are descended from speakers of Semitic languages. Israeli Jews speak Hebrew and are descended from people who speak Hebrew and Aramaic, thus Israeli Jews are by definition Semites.

            • TecumsehUnfaced

              You’re not too hot in logic either. How does the troubles experienced in Christian countries justify assaulting a the indigenous people in a Muslim land that never did any offense to the assaulters? Also, claiming ownership by putative ancestors tow millennia past from people inhabiting that land for all that time and previously is rather absurd.

              Your observation of a Mirzahi majority in Israel today is rather disingenuous. Everyone know that the establishment of Israel was an Ashkenazi project. The Mizrahi came later.

              Alos, your declaration of Semite being a linguistic term is rather disingenuous too, since you are very much aware that it is commonly used as a racial term too. All this twisting to make people into Semites by speaking Hebrew. You must feel very insecure about Ashkenazi claims to Semite heritage.

              Sorry, the vast majority of Israeli Jews can’t be jawed out of being invaders of the indigenous people of Palestine.

                Your observation of a Mirzahi majority in Israel today is rather disingenuous. Everyone know that the establishment of Israel was an Ashkenazi project. The Mizrahi came later

                Mizrahim and Sefaradim lived in Eres Yisra’el for many generations (including 17 generations of my own ancestors who were continuously present in the country from the 1500s until the present and perhaps longer). When the modern political Zionist movement gained ground in the 19th century (it’s important to distinguish between the modern political Zionist movement that led to the successful national renaissance of the Jews in their own historical national homeland and the simple Zionism that is embedded in the traditional Jewish religion and that always inspired Jews to move back to their own country) , Mizrahi Jews participated in the first Zionist Congresses. Active support for the modern political Zionist movement was high from its inception; there was far more Jewish opposition to it from among Ashkenazim (and most extreme anti-Zionist Jews are more likely to be Ashkenazim today as well). (Both from the Left and the ultra-Orthodox.)

                Alos, your declaration of Semite being a linguistic term is rather disingenuous too, since you are very much aware that it is commonly used as a racial term too.

                Sure, racists (like you, I guess) think that “Semite” is a racial term. That’s why European racists in the 19th and early 20th centuries stigmatized and persecuted Ashkenazim as alien Semite others who had no place in Europe and ultimately sought their extermination. Today, their ideological descendants have inverted this thesis and proclaim that Ashkenazim are not Semites and have no place in the Middle east. However, scientifically knowledgeable people know that “Semite” is only meaningful as a linguistic term. Semitic peoples are those peoples that speak Semitic languages.

                You must feel very insecure about Ashkenazi claims to Semite heritage
                I’m very secure in the knowledge that Ashkenazim, in Israel and elsewhere, speak a Semitic language (Hebrew) and non-Hebrew-speaking Ashkenazim in the Diaspora are descended from people who spoke Semitic languages, namely Hebrew and Aramaic. You seem to think that “Semite” signifies a racial origin. Tell me, what gene codes for Semiteness?

                      Terrorism: How the Israeli state was won
                      Middle East – Tom Suarez on January 1, 2017

                      Britain’s wake-up call regarding the Zionists’ indoctrination of children came on the 8th of July, 1938. That day, the Irgun blew up a bus filled with Palestinian villagers. Now, this was not the first time the Irgun had done something of this sort, but this time the British caught the bomber. She was a twelve year old schoolgirl.

                      Teenagers, both boys and girls, were commonly used to plant bombs in Palestinian markets and conduct other terror attacks. Teachers were threatened or removed if they tried to intervene in the indoctrination of their students, and the students themselves were blocked from advancement if they resisted, even being taught to betray their own parents if those parents tried to instill some moderation. Jews who opposed and tried to warn of the emerging fascism were assassinated, and indeed most victims of Zionist assassinations—that is, targeted, rather than indiscriminate—were Jews.
