    There always seems to be one rule for Israel and another for the rest of the world. US, Europe etc they have strict rules on who can enter the country and who cannot and people in the country illegally get deported and the attitude is they have a right to control their borders. When it comes to Israel the rule seems to be we much be a free for all and if somebody wants to come to Israel they should be allowed and if they come illegally we must allow them to stay because anything else is a breach if human rights or apartheid etc. Many of the people who would criticise this probably come from western countries and complain their own governments are not dong enough to stop the flood of illegal immigration. The only people Israel has an OBLIGATION to accept are Jews, if your not Jewish your not entitled to live in Israel, that is the immigration policy we chose and its the immigration policy we are entitled to implement without condemnation.
