    Interesting how police figures have shown a spike in crime just now, when there have been many african refugees living in Tel Aviv for over 5 years. There is a link between the cancelation of work visas for asylum seeksers and threats of prosecution to israeli employers of asylum seekers to the raise in crime rates. And this all serves to confirm what the government has been telling everyone that the africans will come and bring high crime rates... not to mention disease and other social problems, which are the inevitable result of extreme poverty. The situation won't improve as the government will continue its policy of not determining whether or not an asylum seeker is a refugee, and will instead leave the asylum seekers in limbo, where they can't be deported back to their own country as there is a real risk, but they can't work here, or go to another country. Many are seeking ways to leave Israel, illegally and legally through higher education, but the government will not assist them with this by providing exit visas. It is also interesting to note that a European friend who spent many years living in Eritrea tells me there is almost no crime, even in the capital city, and people feel free to leave doors unlocked and no one will ever steal your bicycle from the street. The whole situation is the predictable result of this governments policy towards asylum seekers.
