    Israel is to be commended for helping the African refugees, many if not most of whom are Muslim, already taken refuge in Israel. But since when is this Israel’s problem alone? Why do other countries not take these unfortunates in? I understand why the refugees would not go to an Arab country, with Arab militias being responsible for most of the genocide. But where is Europe? How about South American countries? And while we are at it, what about the US? Sure we have economic problems of our own, but does anyone really think the US cannot care for 1-2000 of these people?
