If Israel really wanted to preserve its character as a Jewish state it would adopt a more generous and open-hearted policy toward refugees. This is not necessarily to say that Israel must let in every single migrant that comes its way, but that Israel should remember Jewish history, Jewish plight from the Torah onwards. I am not opposed to building a wall per se, since Israel must balance the need to protect refugees with Pikuah Nefesh principles to make sure it has control over who gets in. With the numerous refugees from the USSR Israel took in came mafiosos and human traffickers. Israel must take care to let in as many refugees as possible, while increasing control to make sure those coming in are coming in morally, cleanly and genuinely.
