Number of Infiltrators Leaving Israel Skyrockets in August

Yaakov Levi, Israel National News, September 1, 2014

With Gaza terrorists showering Israel with rockets, August didn’t bring much good news for Israelis. But every cloud has a silver lining: in August a noted increase was recorded of illegal African immigrants leaving the country.

While there was no specific connection to the war, observers said that many in the infiltrator community were taken by surprise by the intensity of the war – and many of them have apparently decided that Israel isn’t necessarily the best place for them.

A total of 379 illegals voluntarily left Israel in August, more than had left the previous four months altogether. It was also significantly more than had left the country in August the previous year, when 216 illegalsvoluntarily emigrated.

So far this year, 5,388 illegal Africans have left Israel voluntarily; Israeli authorities who have investigated the infiltrators have repeatedly reported that nearly all of them snuck into Israel looking for job opportunities.

In June, more than 1,000 illegal African immigrants staged a sit-in near the southern border with Egypt, following a protest march against their internment camp in Holot, near the Sinai border, where they are required to stay. The infiltrators called for help leaving the country.

Israel requires illegal immigrants who have been in the country for more than five years to live in Holot. Under legislation passed in December 2013, authorities can detain illegal immigrants for up to a year without trial.

The Israeli population and immigration office said that in late 2013 there were 53,646 African immigrants in Israel, 35,987 of whom were Eritrean, 13,249 Sudanese, and the remainder from other countries.

Illegal immigrants have been cited as responsible for a dramatic rise in violent crime in parts of Israel, particularly in the working classneighborhoods of southern Tel Aviv were they are mostly concentrated.

Israel’s construction last year of an electric fence along its border with Egypt has reduced the number of immigrants arriving illegally through the Sinai Peninsula to almost none.

    Infiltrators? I thought they were undocumented refugees.

    • M.

      Kudos to the Israelis for calling a spade a spade.

      • APaige

        Jews are smart. I would take incoming rockets if it meant outgoing Africans.

    • APaige

      Or Dreamers

    • Nancy

      No, they only call them refugees when they’re in THIS country. Over there, their “infiltrators”.

      I’m sure the discrepancy is due to some obscure nuanced translation from the Hebrew language. /sarc/

  • M.

    “Illegal immigrants have been cited as responsible for a dramatic rise in violent crime in parts of Israel.”

    That’s because of slavery, Jim Crow, and the K… Oh, wait.

    • Sloppo

      I’ve read that Jews dominated the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and I’ve read that Jews in the US were more likely to own slaves than other demographic groups, so that “logic” could be applied I suppose.

      • SoCal88

        Wrong on all counts, anti-Semite! You need to get your reading material from something other than Nazi websites.

        • Sloppo

          Do you have empirical evidence which disproves that information … or is the name-calling thing supposed to be good enough?

  • Luca

    Hard to believe that even a cat could sneak into Israel. Leave up to Africans looking for a handout.

  • IstvanIN

    We could accomplish the same thing by making life unpleasant for “our” aliens. We could never clean them all out this way but it would be a start.

  • Eddie Lutz

    A mandatory work draft will chase them the hell out of there! A border barricaded with rakes, wheelbarrows, and work boots will keep them out.

    Israel does not mess around with illegal aliens from Africa. A liberal Israeli has thoroughly and disdainfully documented the visceral repulsion most Israelis feel for the job-seeking intruders in their midst. Watch/Youtube:

    Israel’s War on Africans (1hr, 11m)
    Talk by David Sheen, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver
    March 9, 2014

    David Sheen reports on Israel’s ferociously racist/xenophobic and violent response of Israelis to the presence of 60,000 black illegal refugees from Northeast African countries such as Sudan, Eritrea [via Egypt]

    • Nancy

      If I had to live shoulder-to-shoulder with an inferior, violent sub-race constantly trying to exterminate me and the rest of my kind, I’d be really intolerant of MORE sub-humans trying to squeeze their way in, too.

      Oh, wait…

    • Kenneth Arrow

      And that is the reason why I like Israeli Jews. They are among handful of nations who still understand the value of racism. It is beautiful to see how unapologetic they really are. They even discriminated against ethiopian Jews.

      They know how to treat liberals in their midst. They shame them and call them by their real name – traitors. We should learn from them.

      On the downside, West gets all the liberal Jews.

      • SoCal88

        There’s a huge difference between the “New Yorkers” and Israelis.

        • zanegray

          Isn’t it NY Jews who live Episcopalian

          But vote Puerto Rican ?

        • ATBOTL

          No there isn’t. I live here. I know Jews here in NYC who support amnesty for illegals here and also support ethnically cleansing Palestinians from the West Bank.

      • billybob2343

        The west gets the ADL that works very closely with the Israeli government. The ADL is constantly pushing for mass immigration into the US.

      • ATBOTL

        There is no difference between Israeli Jews and Jews living in white countries. Both support Israel for Jews only and both support open borders and multi-culturalism for whites.

        • Kenneth Arrow

          I didn’t see any proof that right-wing Israelis really lobby for open borders in the western countries. If you have any proof please post, I’d like to learn.

          I do agree though that western liberal jews are problematic. But so is any other liberal multiculturalist. I wonder how patriotic western jews really are. It would be interesting to see how represented are they in the military and police in the western nations, how many medals they’ve received…

    • Those are not refugees if they have passed through Egypt. Refugee status is void unless one applies at the first safe country.

  • Who will do the work that Israelis won’t?

  • Valmont

    Israel probably gives the Infitrators one-way tickets on El Al to Paris or New York.
    Once they’ve arrived and claimed their baggage, their status immediately changes to Dreamers.

    • LHathaway

      ‘Change agents’?

  • none of your business

    Infiltrator community I live it. But jews have always had a way with words. Why do they complain about living at a detention camp. They get free room and board without working.
    What’s not to like. Probably better sanitation and food than they got at home.

  • LHathaway

    It if can be believed, they have an incredibly detailed understanding of all the immigrant communities in Israel down to the last person.

    Is it OK to ask if this reminds anyone of Nazi Germany?

    • Kenneth Arrow

      Apparently not everything in Nazi Germany was bad?

  • Chris Granzow XI

    “Israel’s construction last year of an electric fence along its border with Egypt has reduced the number of immigrants arriving illegally through the Sinai Peninsula to almost none.”

    That says it all. Just put up an electric fence in Melilla and on the Mexican border.

  • Michigan Patriot

    Jews want to diversify every White Christian country but not their Zionist Israel; Jews , like blacks are the big hypocrites concerning condemning others for self-preservation.

  • English Majority

    This is why Israel is such a powerful nation, despite its size.

    Just imagine what we could be…..

  • Easyrhino

    Israel should import one of their own, Barbara Lerner Spectre, so she can help Israel experience the joy of multiculturalism that people of their ilk so desperately want European nations to transition to.

  • sulbernick

    Maybe there’s hope for the West after all. Let’s have war.
