1. Sorry, but no sympathy here

People from Eritrea and the Sudan who have arrived in Israel are NOT refugees. They have crossed more than one border. Why not simply hand over all the illegal aliens to the warm and welcoming arms of the United Nations? If they can build schools in Gaza, they can certainly build them elsewhere in Africa. It's a fair bet that the latter schools will not be used to stockpile weapons and as grounds from which to fire missiles at Israelis. We all know exactly the purpose of the United Nations schools in Gaza serves and education is not one of them. Israel's job is to worry about the education of Israeli children. Other people's children are someone else's problem. Keep in mind, too, that the funding for Israel's schools largely comes from the tax base. Illegal migrants from Africa do not pay taxes.
2. And ? In Sweden&Denmark are waiting lists to kindergartens,

it's a blessing to find kindergarten when and where it's needed, only Israel is burdened by inflated demands of freeloaders

And America's job is to worry about the education of American children and not of Israelis' kids who live in Manhattan with their parents.
4. 3.You seem to be missing the point made by #1

I am a dual citizen. I pay taxes in both countries and I have homes in both countries. You know what, chica? While I spend a great deal of time encouraging the Jews, say, of France to come home to Israel, I would like to see you reverse the journey. Go back to wherever you belong. Alternatively, if you feel so strongly about educating the children of illegal aliens from Africa, why don't you just endow a private school for their benefit -- coordinate the curriculum with the Education Ministry, pay the salaries of the teachers, pay for computer equipment; pay for foreign language speaking teachers because these children do not speak Hebrew. You can also graciously build a playground and a school gymnasium and a library and all sorts of things -- right out of your own pocket.
6. Chase them out of the country ASAP or you will lose

your country. Israel was founded as a safe heaven for Jews. What part of that do the brain dead not understand?
7. Education will turn these children into

good citizens. But the remarks posted here remind me of an appropriate statement once made by a very intelligent person: "The exquisite gut-wrenching beautiful painful joyful sorrow I feel when I look at the ways of my people make me want to soar like an eagle, or kill myself depending upon what day it is." -Michael James
8. To: No. 7

Oh, yeah. You and Helene just go right ahead and spread your wings. Pay your way. Just this once. Has it ever occurred to you that it is Israel's job to make ISRAELIS soar their wings? You can take care of the rest, financially. I'm just assuming that you and Helene can pick up the tab. Go for it, eagle.
