They arrived without authorization, thus they should be expelled. Israel should hire a few boats from Greek shippers and load them up with the illegals and ship them back to their home countries. Or else to the country whose border they crossed to get into Israel. The gall of these people who think they can climb in the windows of one’s home just because it is better than where they came from. The mistake that Israel made, like most EU countries, was to let the infiltrators stay as long as they did. You have to deal with these infractions in a timely manner, ie immediately, otherwise you give the infiltrators the idea that they can wit you out and win in the end.

If those people do not have legal permission to be in the country then they are breaking the law and therefore criminals. They should be treated as criminals and thrown out across the border. Its really infuriating to see the audacity of such people who think they can sneak into countries and demand exemption from the laws of immigration, and expect jobs and welfare.

Unless these African Migrants are Jewish they stand about as much chance of being admitted to Israel as the Palestinians do.

“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said this week he views the African influx – since stemmed by an Israeli fence along the Egyptian frontier – as a threat to Israel’s Jewish social fabric.”

Well that settles it, Likud is racist and doesn’t care about non-Jews.

Also, if Africa has a refugee problem, then other countries must do their part as well and take in as many people as possible.

@delta5297, I don’t think any country should take in any refugees from Africa or any other place. The Africans should resolve their own problems to live and prosper in their own land, not run away from their problems and take advantage of more prosperous nations.
