Go knock yourself out. Australia (like the USA and many other Western nations) has many immigration detention camps for illegals and those caught overstaying their visas; we also have Christmas Island. But it's not ok for Israel to have the same?
Yes, that's what they're doing.
Israel is creating another Open Aired Prison?
My guess is that the people who are opposed to Israel will object to most anything they do, and the people who support Israel will probably support most anything they do. But your prediction may very well come to pass:
I wonder how the world will react to that?
But none of those predictions help us see whether this is a good, just, or legal policy.
Probably just sweep it under the rug like they do Palestine and forget they exist.
That's pretty much the way it goes. Nearly everybody steals somebody else's land then wants to keep it. US, England, France, China, Russia, who knows how many?
Oh the Irony that Israel is complaining about some other group taking over their lands...

That being said, after what they have been through you would think Israel would be a touch more sympathetic to a people in strife.
Our removal centres are used for temporary detention, in situations where people have no legal right to be in the UK but have refused to leave voluntarily. Those detained in any of our centres can leave at any time to return to their home country.
Actually an non-caucasian Jew can be classified as an infiltrator in Israel. There are specific laws dealing with infiltrators in Israel and it can include the deportation of naturalised blacks. My comment was not limited to the article but was a in the context of what is going on in Israel.
