Darfur Refugees seek Israeli home


news.bbc.co.uk

Initially, all the refugees that crossed the border in the last few years were placed in detention centres awaiting their fate from the Israeli judiciary.

Like David, about a 100 of the refugees have been placed in Kibbutzim - Israeli collective farms - around the country
But because Israel considers Sudan to be an enemy state its "enemy infiltration" law means that it cannot offer asylum to anyone from a country that does not recognise the Jewish state.

An interesting moral question is on offer. IMO Israel just like any other country in a position to do so should open its borders to a manageable number of refugees. Of course the refugees should be expected to respect the culture and customs of Israel. This would the refugees have a smoother integration into Israeli society.

If any of the refugees are found to be a threat to Israel after screening they should be deported straight away .
