    The ignorance of the Israeli public is unbelievable when it comes to this matter, and certain sectors of society like to blur the differences. Sudanese who have been living in Egypt for many years and cross over to Israel for financial expediency are by no means refugees. I remember meeting Sudanese in Egypt many years ago. It's like Poles moving to the UK to make more money. Then they heard it was even better in Israel and that we will never deport them. They bring a culture of extreme violence and HIV. We have no idea of they have criminal records or anything. They are simply the "poor Sudanese refugees". Let's forget that they saved $500 each to pay border guards and bedoiun people traffickers. But the "human rights" groups kind of don't mention any of this. Anything to make Israel a little bit less Jewish is a kosher cause. I'm not at all religious, but I really hate these "rights" organizations and their arrogance and self-righteousness.
