Travel industry sources say few Israelis have canceled but few are making new reservations. If they’re flying to Europe, it’s to the east.09:38 28.11.15 | 0 comments
Israel should show a humane approach on this issue. Sending back these poor children may split up their families and is therefore inhumane. For Eli Yishai keeping the Jewish character of the State of Israel is a higher priority than being righteous on people in sometimes very difficult circumstances. His kind of reasoning to defend his stance is cynical and shows his narrow-mindedness. As a Jew I am deeply ashamed of this insensitive behaviour. I wish Israel learned lessons from history and used this opportunity to make a gesture. This may have set an example for the rest of the world. Eli Yishai is not a mensch.
