Unwanted in "Israel"

Many Zionist groups have been very active in opposing the "genocide" in Darfur and yet, look how the apartheid state is treating these Sudanese refugees.

"More than five hundred Sudanese refugees have fled to Israel in the last two months to escape 'genocide' in Darfur.

Now Israel is threatening to deport them."

Gee, I wonder why those refugees didn't try to go to an Arab country. Egypt is right next door.

Well, it IS the Arab militias who are killing people in Darfur....

Haaretz reports:
Olmert told the Foreign Affairs committee that some 2,800 refugees and economic migrants have crossed into Israel from Egypt, and that 1,160 of them are from Sudan. According to Olmert's data, 2,500 persons crossing into Israel from Sinai during the first six months of the year.

Olmert promised that Israel will absorb the refugees that have already arrived from Darfur, and will help settle them in Israel. As for the rest, he said that they will be returned to Egypt.

'Most of the persons crossing are economic migrants, and there is no reason to hold them here and to create a community that [potentially] may reach hundreds of thousands.' Olmert said.
