How dare the government of Israel, without explanation, announce to the world that it will deport Sudanese refugees (8/20, A-10, “Darfur refugees can’t stay in Israel; Human rights advocates object to policy, which officials won’t explain”). In all likelihood, those refugees will be returned to Sudan, where they will be treated as traitors or become victims of genocide.
As an American citizen who has had to take Israel’s side in most things Middle East, I find it appalling that it has taken this stand. How many more Jews would have perished had every country that offered asylum during the Holocaust taken this approach?
Israel, do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
