One of the reasons that many Africans opt for Israel, even when, say Kenya, one of the more prosperous neighbors of those who are distressed is because Kenya is not welcoming them. Israel, well, . . . is easier, it's even more prosperous than Kenya, more open, yadda yadda yadda. Were they to save up and reach France, or Belgium, or some other nation in the EU, as many economic refugees, do, they have a legal disabilites to no end. So, the promised land, as it were is Israel, of course. For some reason those other nations that make it difficult for economic and political refugees are willing to villify Israel,for being immoral, yet as long as they keep "those undesirables" out, it's quite kosher. What is needed is a Convention between the prosperous nations. There is one, yet for some reason them's that don' honor them, like France, as they expelled the Gypsies is greeted with a deafening silence, yet Israel when it tries to achieve a balanced approach is regarded as a villiain. I wonder why?
