This is definitely an inflammatory story and sadly many will view it filtered through their own bias and in some cases genuine bigotry.
Israel is a tiny country of only about 8,500 square miles. To put that in context, it's a little smaller than New Hampshire, one of the smallest US States.
Israel has a population of about 7,869,900 (2012 estimate) compared to New Hampshire's population of 1,318,194 (2011 estimate) so it is a pretty crowded place. That equals a population density of 982 per square mile, beating out India's density of 953 per square mile.
The impact of that would be overwhelming in a country as small as Israel where they already have a population density problem. At that density simply feeding, housing and providing for the legal occupants of Israel is most certainly difficult. With an invasion of illegal migrants of this magnitude no doubt they are backed into a corner.
Then on top of that, you have the issue of the cover it provides for illegal migrants not looking for work, but to act against Israel from inside. The Sudanese group would include mostly Muslims and among them would be Radical Islamist with bad intent.
Is it unreasonable of Israel to eject these uninvited, illegal guests? No more unreasonable than if a group of strangers invaded your home and you made them leave.
The rest is all a combination of expressed bigotry, general hatred and bias against Israel and the Jews in general.
Israel said on Monday it had started rounding up African migrants in the first stage of a controversial "emergency plan" to intern and deport thousands deemed a threat to the Jewish character of the state.
the difference with Israel is, this incident is completely hypocritical of the suffering that they went through and where they are now today. Israel is pretty much a giant refugee camp for the Jews so they could avoid being persecuted in other countries.
