    The problem of the modern immigration from the third world countries is that the educational gap betw. the first and third world people is such a miss-match. While the first world has in the span of centuries advanced socially, educationally and technologically, which all together have developped our attitudes and the way we function today....the third world countries have remained stagnated over the same period of time till today. This has created unequality betw. the first and the third worldians...or can you possibly expect a person, who enters a first world country, literally straight from a clay-hut, start working efficently at a computor, to understand and behave acc. to the demands and expectations of a first world society? The child or the grand-child of this third worldian WILL however adapt the first world life-style and become merged with it. Hence it is these future generations we need to think of as we proceed to the future. To them Israel should stay open.
