Israel should welcome more immigrants. I live in the area of Tel-Aviv with many immigrants from Africa and Asia, and I can say that all these talks about problems that immigrants bring with them are nothing but racism. Even without them, Israel is one of the most multicultural countries in the world, thanks to Zionism. There's no need in detention facility: there are absorption centers. Of course, the infiltration and disorderly immigration is not as good for Israel, as the orderly one. Therefore, Israel must elaborate a consistent immigration policy, which would be much more liberal, than the one we have today. There's nothing wrong with immigrants, on the contrary, our country will only benefit when more immigrants come here. Zionism is all about immigration and I think this progressive trait of Zionism should be liberated of the reactionary ethnic dimension, i.e., not only Jews must have right to immigrate to here, Israel should be much more receptive to others.
