On the world stage, the policies of the country of Israel are not giving the nation a good name. They are appearing to embrace the kind of racism that was rejected in America long ago, and the global community is taking notice. The recent treatment of African immigrants has put the nation into the national spotlight, and some are wondering how people who were treated so poorly by the Germans could ever mistreat other human beings in this way.
KultureKritic.com tells the story:
In an interview with Israeli newspaper Maariv on Sunday, Interior Minister Eli Yishai stated that “Muslims that arrive here do not even believe that this country belongs to us, to the white man.”
The “Muslims” the Interior Minister was referencing are the 700 South Sudanese refugees currently living in Israel, according to the British Independent. The refugees were previously granted permission to stay in the country, but the government has successfully argued for their expulsion in court, on the basis that their region became independent in 2011.
