JERUSALEM, Aug. 19 — Israel sent approximately 50 African migrants, many reported to be Sudanese refugees from war-torn Darfur, back across the border to Egypt late Saturday night, a move that drew the condemnation of Israeli human rights advocates when it became known on Sunday.
The migrants had illegally crossed the Israeli-Egyptian border earlier Saturday and were sent back the same day, as Israel instituted a new policy of instantly deporting such illegal migrants, regardless of their status, an Israeli government spokesman said.
Israel is a great place to flee if your are a refugee. Provided, of course, that you happen to be Jewish.
UPDATE: If Israel accepted refugees it might accidentally forward the idea that there is a pervasive genocide thereby devaluing the holocaust and challenging the uniqueness of the Jewish narrative.
