1. Good news
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (03.12.13)
Now this is good news. The State of Israel is (or should be) a law abiding Stante, not religious run by prejudice. We are not - yet - Iran. Very glad to see that the courts are taking this important step in returning us to balanced judgement.
Yoni ,   Shomron   (03.12.13)
I call on the "Supreme Court" to IMMEDIATELY halt the government's undemocratic and inhumane insecticide fumigation of locusts trying to infiltrate the State of Israel!!! They have EVERY right in the world to infiltrate WHEREVER they please! Preventing them from entering the country is RACIST and in clear violation of international law!!!
3. Holding facility? Mercaz klitah?
former oleh chadash ,   Brazil   (03.12.13)
You should sell land for us to build a home. For a reasonable price. That's what mimshalah should do for us.
4. International law says they are Egypt's problem
Eric ,   Tel Aviv & NY   (03.12.13)
Asylum seekers are supposed to ask for protection in the first state that they reach. By crossing Egypt to get to Israel the Geneva Convention says they should be looking for asylum in Egypt not Israel. This is all the justification the state needs.
5. Yoni, comparing human beings to insects is just despicable
and you obviously not serving the Israeli cause... I see... you're not living in Israel anyway
6. Yoni, Shomrun
Robert Haymond ,   Tekoa, Israel   (03.12.13)
In fact, your Jonathan Swift comment was well written and made its point extremely well. I'm afraid it was misunderstood by at least one Reader, however; probably due to the sophistication of your response.
7. Hand over all African refugee claimants to UNHCR
Tracy W   (03.12.13)
If they are truly persecuted people then they must be protected in UN camps in Africa. Israel and all other countries pay dues to the UN to look after refugees.
8. Yoni, you're stupid.
Jay Abouaf ,   Jaffa Israel   (03.12.13)
9. This is a security matter.
Reuven   (03.12.13)
The self-assumed powers of the High Court to rule on security and military matters must be clipped. And Eric is correct. Under International law it is Egypt who must take responsibility for these illegal immigrants.
10. Yoni, please. A bit funny & quite smart, but finally stupid.
Ibrahim Sued ,   Brazil   (03.12.13)
11. An IQ Test for the Courts
Ron ,   OC   (03.13.13)
If Israel allows unbridled African/Moslem illegals into Israel how long will the Jewish state be Jewish? If the liberal courts are allowed to circumvent common sense Israel will cease to be Jewish or a desirable place to live.
12. Check who's funding this legal petition.
Expat ,   Adelaide   (03.13.13)
Wouldn't be surprised at all if you'd find the New Israel Fund.
13. As simple as Tracy W #7 says
Keren ,   IL-BR   (03.13.13)
The solution to these African infilters to Israel is so absurdly simple that it is not comprehensible why the government of Israel loses so much time and money on it. Do the obvious and right thing and move on!
14. Here is why - disgust with crimes!!
Ted   (03.13.13)
another case - "An Eritrean man allegedly broke into an apartment in the Yad Eliyahu neighborhood of Tel Aviv early on Wednesday morning, stabbing and lightly wounding a woman who tried to prevent him from attacking her daughter."
15. A World of refugees In Our Own Country
Joseph E ,   Givatayim-Israel   (03.13.13)
We've become refugees, lost at home, refugees in our own countries, wanderers in our own cities. We find that we belong less in our own country than the infiltrators flooding it. We've has become displaced persons, a familiar enough feeling to many of our neighbors who are also victims of ethnic and religious conflicts & the severe crimes of those illegals aliens. But while the conflicts the infiltrators have fled are official, our conflict is not. We're the victim of a nameless conflict that can be named, of a colonization that can be described as such and of the ethnic cleansing of our national identity and the theft of our future.
