    30,000 African migrants take to Tel-Aviv streets protesting detention policy

    @SajeevJino

    Well, if you don't wanna end up in a detention camp, don't cross the border illegally. It's that simple.
    These people enter Israel illegally and expect to exploit the system ?

    Same thing happens in Europe, where hordes of Africans in their boats, land in Lampedusa (Italy) and make it illegally into the rest of EU.
    Same thing with India (Bangladesh).
    Same thing with the US (Mexicans).

    Multiculturalism has been a failure....well, unless the migrants have money and/or good education. All these people protesting, how about going back to where you came from and enjoy all the freedoms you left behind.... let rome be run as the romans like...

    If immigrants do not assimilate into the host nation's culture(s), then multiculturalism might fail.
    This is especially true for Israel. A lot of these Africans, and the very identity of Israel (Jewish state) will become invalid.

    a. Every effort must be made by Israel to send these illegals back to Ethiopia or Eritrea or whatever and
    b. every effort must be made by Israel to properly assimilate the existing legal migrants into Israeli society.

    It is an existential threat to Israel, esp since their population is low and since it is surrounded by hostile nations.
    Same points a. and b. apply to other nations be it European, American or Indian.

    I dont know if you know this, but right in the middle of an Ethopian civil war. Israeli air force ran continuous airlift operations to move the Ethopian jews to safety. There were pilots who did run after run of their military transport aircraft and moved thousands of jew ethopian jews to safety.

    These Ethopian jews integrated seamlessly into the Israeli culture and were made to feel at home. The same with the Nagas they moved from Nagaland to Israel, and the few Keralite jews Israel offered to immigrate to Israel.

    Isn't the entire nation of Israel already made up of illegal immigrants?

    Depends on who you ask. Israelis will argue that it is the land of their ancestors.
    Besides, 73% of Israelis are Israeli born (Statistical Abstract of Israel 2012 - No. 63 Subject 2 - Table No. 25).

    Even assuming your reasoning is justifiable, it doesn't make sense to add more illegal immigrants, does it ?

    Israel is a sovereign state, so they can certainly do whatever they like with regards to immigration. I just find it ironic.

    Israel should come down from its stand i.e. that land belongs only and only to jews because it was promised to them.

    OTOH, resources are scare, especially water and arable land. So leave out illegal, even legal migrants can find it difficult.

    Jews were put in the only part of the desert without its only valuable resource "OIL" and they made the most of it. They turned it into a land of opportunity.... barely the size of mumbai with half the population of mumbai they have set an example for every ostracized minority there ever was.

    Now, surviving in a land surrounded by enemies does not come with a gandhian approach. They learnt the harshest way possible about what happens when you dont take what you deserve and they have learnt their lesson well. Very simply put, they are doing whatever it takes to survive and their survival and prosperity is proof that they are not wrong completely.

    Isn't US of A or Australia populated by immigrants who overpowered the existing weaker populace and occupied the land ?

    First off, these idiots have entered Israel illegally and then they complain at being detained.

    Israel should do them a favour and send them back to whichever country from Africa they came from - let them enjoy the free air of their respective native lands.
