1. I guess their lives ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.13.12)
... were not all that much at risk after all. Who would have guessed?
2. At last, some good news from Israel
Geoff ,   London (UK)   (11.13.12)
3. #1 Sarah
Gregg ,   Haifa, IL   (11.13.12)
They leave because their lives are at risk in democratic Israel !
4. Please take Eli Yishai with you
Haim ,   TA   (11.13.12)
5. Economic migrants
Yahli ,   Poleg   (11.13.12)
These people are economic migrants seeking a better life. It is a compliment to Israel that they want to live here. They are however illegal and they need to be treated as such.
6. Why not go to Muslim lands?
Toby   (11.13.12)
Muslims have over 99% of Middle East land, yet these people make a beeline for tiny Israel. Why? LOL every civilized person knows why. Says a lot about Islam. Very unattractive to say the least. They only way Islam expanded historically was by the sword.
7. # 3 Gregg
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (11.13.12)
How many of them have died in Israel?
8. 3 gregg
alsky ,   Toronto   (11.13.12)
democratic nations have a right and duty to protect borders and keep out infiltrators. Try again
9. To: No. 3
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.13.12)
Not their lives, you nitwit. Their livelihoods. I'd say the good people of South Tel Aviv have far more to fear from illegal Africans than the illegal Africans have to fear from the good people of South Tel Aviv. Hey -- didn't you say that you were planning on leaving Israel? So, what's keeping you?
10. Inadmissible Illegal Economic Migrants
Bill Foonman ,   Jacksonville USA   (11.13.12)
No civilized country would accept these illegal infiltrators. If they are voluntarily returning to their home countries, it is absolute proof that they came to Israel as economic migrants and all of them should be returned as soon as feasibly possible.
11. #8 Alsky, democratic nations
Gregg ,   Haifa, IL   (11.13.12)
have the duty to protect any citizen, any person, legal or not, who's on its territory from physical violence and racism
12. Sarah, does that give south TA residents
Gregg ,   Haifa, IL   (11.13.12)
the right to attack Africans? Be patient, I'll be gone soon enough. Meanwhile, I am still living in Israel, working and paying my taxes as any other citizen, so I am entitled to giving my opinions whether you like them or not. You'll note that I'm always polite and never use bad words or curses. That is not the case for everyone I can see.
13. Thank God
Mark ,   U.S.   (11.13.12)
At least they won't get caught up in the earthquake, that Syrian-African fault has been having birth pains for some time,,, Hatti was enough of a sign,,, Thank you HaShem, thank you for this one. May these Africans prosper in their country and use what they have learned from Israel and her peoples.
14. #11 Ms Gregg
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (11.13.12)
Citizens YES Illegals NO How many of them have you invited to your own house ? Any nations paramount interests are to protect it's own legal residents first Be a good gal/fellow,help them pack their bags, then pack yours & join them Neither of you will be missed
15. 11 gregg
alsky ,   toronto   (11.13.12)
as an immigration consultant here in Toronto, I can tell you that Israel treats refugees far more humanely than we do. You should see how we deport the Mexicans. (sometimes in handcuffs)
16. 14 is that what you say to anyone who disagrees with you?
Gregg ,   Haifa IL   (11.13.12)
Pack up and leave?
17. #3 Gregg
Rachel ,   US   (11.13.12)
These people's lives were not at risk when they left Cairo to cross Sinai into Israel. They come to Israel for one reason: jobs.
18. #16 Ms.Gregg, that's not the only thing
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (11.13.12)
I also asked how many have you invited to your home If you haven't you’re being generous with what doesn't belong to you, sheer hypocrisy on your part Funny thing is that since the Illegal’s were first mentioned; I’ve asked dozens of those that want those Illegal’s to stay, I have yet to hear that any of you have invited them to dine & sleep under your own roof Who knows, maybe you will be the very first ?
19. #17 Rachel
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (11.13.12)
These illegal’s also said that if they couldn't get jobs that they would commit crimes, which they are doiing in South TA
20. These peoples will be welcomed
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (11.13.12)
in Greece, great lack of immigrants there. Relative short distance to travel.
21. #9 -sarah B. Israel/USA
S.b.i.u   (11.13.12)
Did Sandy hit your New York duplex appartment ?? How is life in the Manhattan nowadays ??
22. Or to put it another way...
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (11.13.12)
...they WERE bogus asylum seekers. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
23. # 3 They are still iLLEGAL.
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.13.12)
And, their lives aren't at risk.
24. # 21 And why is that any of your business?
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.13.12)
For all you know Sarah B is a volunteer helping victims of Sandy in NY and NJ.
25. # 15 Alsky Canada THANK YOU !!!
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.13.12)
Bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.13.12)
27. # 20 How about Hungary ?
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.13.12)
Would they be welcomed there, illegally?
28. #20 istvan
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (11.14.12)
For them to get to Israel,they'll have to swim, any ships that they might take will be interecepted by the IDF & illegal passengers jailed, as they should have been when they first manged to sneak into Israel
29. To: No. 12
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.14.12)
You once said that you were not a citizen of Israel, but rather a citizen of Italy. Which is it? The residents of South Tel Aviv do not attack Africans. The reverse, sadly, is not the case. Or don't you consider rape to be an attack? How about threatening and aggressive panhandling? Do Africans passed out in a drunken stupor inhabit the public parks and playgrounds in Haifa? By the way, don't flatter yourself. You are not as polite as you seem to think you are, and you are quite rude in your diatribes against the State of Israel -- in fact, that is what we have come to expect from you. You taunt, you ridicule, you criticize, but you never, EVER, put forth anything remotely resembling an intellectual argument. I guess such a thing is well beyond your ken.
30. To: No. 21
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.14.12)
Actually, not to put too fine point on it, but it's a triplex. We came through the hurricane just fine. A lot of people still have no power, a lot of people lost their homes. Thanks for asking, as if you really cared ....
