Just imagine, these refugees walk close to two thousand kilometers and more to gain access to Israel. Egypt from the Sudanese border to the north coast of the Mediteranean is 1,024 kilometers. Darfur to the Egyptian border is over a thousand kilometers. Why would these people head two thousand kilometers to Israel to seek refuge? This is the important question here, why not Egypt, Libya, Chad, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, most of these countries are close by, so why not seek refuge in one of them? Israel is obivously a wonderful place, experiencing some bizarre PR problems amoungst the fashionable, but on the ground, where it matters, in the minds of the refugee, Israel is the only available sactuary.
