Now that the Israeli military has smashed Gaza to smithereens to punish the Hamas terror attack on October 7, two Israelis have conceived a plan to compensate the residents of Gaza: The “West” can import them. Indeed, Knesset members Danny Danon and Ben-Barak argue in The Wall Street Journal—in agreement with American leftists, of course—the West morally obliged to import them. Commenters roundly and rightly rejected the idea as dangerous and ridiculous.
“Europe has a long history of assisting refugees fleeing conflicts,” the two wrote, citing the imprudent decision of Germany, Sweden, and France to import million of Muslim “refugees”:
Looking to these examples, countries around the world should offer a haven for Gaza residents who seek relocation. ...
The international community has a moral imperative—and an opportunity—to demonstrate compassion, help the people of Gaza move toward a more prosperous future and work together to achieve greater peace and stability in the Middle East.
[The West Should Welcome Gaza Refugees, November 13, 2023]
Words, as they say, fail me.
Importing a bazillion angry Muslims won’t “achieve greater peace and stability” in the West, as we have learned from the anti-Israel, anti-Hamas protests, along with the political and physical clashes between Jews and Palestinians in Europe and the United States.
Here are some commenters, many obviously Jewish themselves:
And one reader raised the obvious objection:
This is a joke right? They shouted death to America, Death to Jews.
No way!, they can all go to an Arab nations, or Iran who is funding this with the 6 billion Joe Biden sent them.
On top of that we have 8 million illegals who already broke the law, who will be on welfare for decades, while I just received a letter telling me I will get 800 dollars less a month starting in 2034 on my social security.
Curiously, the two Israelis don’t discuss their own country’s “moral imperative” to “demonstrate compassion.”
Then again, being an Israeli means never having to say you’re sorry.
