between 2001 and 2010 there were 54 incidents in which Palestinians who received legal status in Israel were directly or indirectly involved in acts of terrorism (including 28 cases between 2006 and 2010 where Palestinians with legal resident status were directly involved in the attacks). Moreover, the State claimed that between 2006 and 2010 security forces foiled approximately 200 planned terror attacks in which the would-be terrorists were assisted by persons holding Israeli identity cards. The restriction of migration from enemy territory is thus necessary in order to protect national security. Furthermore, the risk posed by such migrants cannot be addressed through individual examination of each case, since terrorist groups tend to contact such migrants only after they receive permanent resident status in Israel.
