JERUSALEM POST Articles-Index-Top
All infiltrators must be expelled from the country, MK Danny Danon
said Thursday, just hours after assailants in Jerusalem attacked the
home of Eritrean migrants at the Mahane Yehuda market, seriously
injuring one man and lightly injuring his six-month pregnant wife.
"Enough talk," Danon said. "It is time for action. Deport all of the
infiltrators from the state of Israel."
Danon offered his preferred solution to the ongoing issue: Israel
must "build cities for infiltrators, finish construction of the
border fence (along Israel´s southern border with Egypt) and expel
all the infiltrators from Israel," he said. "Illegal infiltrators
must have two modes: Deported or awaiting deportation."
The Likud MK rejected violence as a means of achieving the expulsion
of the migrants after the late Wednesday night attack on Eritrean
migrants in Jerusalem. "I condemn violence of any kind," he told the
conference attendees. The attack was the second of its kind in little
over a month targeting migrants in the bustling Mahaneh Yehuda market.
Quoting Eritrea´s ambassador to Israel Tesfamariam Tekeste, Danon
said "there is no danger in Eritrea." In May, Teseste denied
allegations that his country would kill illegal infiltrators were
Israel to deport them back to Eritrea.
"Citizens of Israel have turned into refugees in their own homes, and
the (African) refugees have become the permanent residents (of
Israel)," Danon said. (© 1995-2011, The Jerusalem Post 07/13/12)
