Better suited to Sweden? (H/T The Times of Israel)
With the suspiciously well-organized African illegal immigrant demonstrations in Israel finishing a third day, horrible news has broken…for Sweden:
Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar announced that dozens of Eritrean asylum seekers had left Israel voluntarily in recent weeks for Sweden…
Sweden agreed to take them in response to a special request by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and to include them in a resettlement plan, due to their special circumstances.
Sweden accepts dozens of Eritrean asylum seekers from Israel by Ilan Lior Haaretz Jan 7, 2014
Sweden is of course completely mad to accept these profoundly dysfunctional people who are incapable of avoiding being a permanent burden of the country’s lavish welfare state - quite apart from the crime they can be counted upon to supply.
The matter is harshly but accurately put in perspective by the webzine The New Observer
Israel has a total population of around seven million, of whom some six million are Jews. Sweden has a population of around nine million, of whom around seven million are European Swedes.
There is therefore, no logical reason why hundreds of thousands of Africans represents any more of a threat to Israel than to Sweden; in fact, they do to both countries.
Particularly bearing in mind Sweden’s size, I ask again How Long Before Israel's Unwelcome Black "Refugees" Get Dumped On America?Meanwhile we can only be wistful about the patriotism of Israel’s leaders as reported by Haaretz:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that, despite the events of the past two days, he is still committed to expelling the migrants. "I'd like to make clear that protests and strikes won't help," Netanyahu said during a Likud faction meeting. "As we were able to stem the illegal infiltration of our borders, we are steadfast in our commitment to evict those who entered before we closed the border...
Also on Monday, Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar said he was "not very impressed with all the crying and complaining" by business owners whose employees were on strike. "With all due respect to the restaurant and café owners in crisis, or those whose cleaning staff didn't show up, this will not determine Israel's national policy. On the contrary, let's think about those Israelis who have lost their jobs [to migrant workers]."
