Little Egypt in Israel

An interesting article about the trials and tribulations of the community of egyptian immigrants to Israel (Hattip Ritzy). Main source of problems? The Egyptian government and embassey. Hmm..................

"With an unofficial estimate of 7,000 marriages, there have been calls by MPs to strip the Egyptians in question of their nationality; their children, it is said, pose an even greater threat to Egypt's security."

Sure, the kids grow up in a closed community, don't bother to learn Hebrew and never intergrate into the Jewish community."

Sound familiar?

"But Hefni argues that "people will always search for better conditions in three specific areas: a job, security (if prosecuted), and pleasure (tourism)". Hence, he says, "with rising unemployment and deteriorating economic conditions, Egyptians will travel regardless of political calculations"

Except for the "tourism,"

Sound familiar?

"The Egyptian authorities are also worried that a clash might occur between Egyptians and the 120,000-strong Palestinian labour force over the Israeli job market; competition is seen as unnecessary and undesirable. "

Sure, the egyptian illegals are taking all the jobs needed by the palestinians [or won't do].

Sound familiar?

If not, try substituting Mexican where ever Egyptian is mentioned and Blacks where ever Palestinians are mentioned.

Then remember neither Egypt or Israel wants them able to come or to stay.

Now that is different, Mexico wants all their poor to come to the USA and send as much money back to Mexico as they can.

Now that is what is called "free trade" by Mexico.

What a mess.

Just get used to it.
