god bless Israel ... again

Kind of reminds you of treatment reserved for Palestinians:
TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — African migrants in Israel have been detained, threatened with deportation and faced hostility from lawmakers and residents. Since last year, they face another burden: a de facto 20 percent salary cut that has driven them further into poverty.
Israel’s roughly 35,000 African migrants and the groups that support them say the recent law — in which Israel withholds the money from their paychecks every month and returns it only if they leave the country — is yet another attempt by an anti-migrant government to force them out....
While the migrants say they are refugees fleeing conflict or persecution, Israel views them as job-seekers who threaten the Jewish character of the state.
The "Jewish character of the state" ... is that anything like the Aryan character of Germany in the run-up to World War II? Immigration is a tough enough nut to crack without inserting apartheid into it ... or Chartlottesville ... or whatever.

  1. So who hired them thereby bringing them into the country? What's their penalty other than losing employees.?
