Before we lose control

It’s not a war on immigration that lies ahead of us, but a war over the continuation of the Jewish majority in Israel.

When we published an article in 2007 about the nightmare facing Israel from Africa, many were shocked. Today, this vision has become a reality (Then, 400 infiltrators stole over the border from Africa each month; currently, about 4,000 come here illegally every month).
I realize today that I too was naive back then, when I wrote the article. I did not see the depth of the picture unfolding before us. Then I thought that the primarily reason for the infiltration was to improve the lives of the Africans who came here, as it is with the migration from Mexico to the United States, but now it appears that the image is unique to Israel.
The truth is that millions of Africans would like to immigrate to Israel to improve their lives, but it turns out that in Israel there are those who want to exploit this to change our country’s demographic balance. After they failed to let in hundreds of thousands of Palestinians into this country, these people now expect a migration of hundreds of thousands of Muslims from Africa to Israel. It’s not a war on immigration that lies ahead of us, but a war over the continuation of the Jewish majority in Israel.
A number of associations, NGOs and others have encouraged this African immigration to Israel. They begin by directing the emigration from the countries of origin, preserving it, preventing it from running into obstacles in the Sinai Peninsula, and providing it with a warm home in Israel. They have spread and continue to spread the rumor in Africa that Israel is a paradise, and that it can be reached by foot.
These are not migrant workers who stand before us, and not refugees, but a majority of African Muslims who come here to settle, and never leave.
The numbers: According to official data of the State of Israel, the rate of Muslim immigration from Africa is about 1,000 a week (this was the situation last month), and nearly 4,000 per month (which is double the numbers from a few months ago). Since there is no one who knows exactly how many of these infiltrators we now have here, the estimate is that there are between 80,000 and 120,000 of them in the country.
South Tel Aviv has become a small Sudan, the infiltrators in Eilat already constitute about 20 percent of the population, and this is also the situation in certain neighborhoods in central Israel – Pardes Katz in Tel Aviv, Bnei Brak, suburban Petah Tikva, Sderot and Rishon Lezion. They have even reached the Galilee already.
Everywhere, on the side of the roads, you can spot the newcomers. They are surveying their new country, surveying its wealth, their wealth.
Go see the astonishing sights in Eilat, a city occupied by infiltrators that is nightly flooded with dozens and hundreds of new infiltrators.
They arrive in Eilat and in the morning go to the Interior Ministry office, where they receive permits to stay from the State of Israel, on behalf of Interior Minister Eli Yishai, and hence are free to begin working anywhere in the country.
And what is the plan hatched in secret by those organizations of “human rights?” When the numbers reach a quarter of a million or half a million, and we’re getting there fast, the organizations will turn to the High Court of Justice and to the United Nations, demanding that Israel grant residency to these “immigrants” and even citizenship, as is customary in the West.
With that, the percentage of Muslims in Israel will jump immediately to between 30% and 35%, with all the demographic implications that you can imagine.
Being residents, then citizens, the Africans will naturally be able to bring their family members, and the numbers will double. For those who did not want the Jews in Uganda, Uganda will now come to Israel. Being a small country, these processes will occur very fast, faster than in Europe.
Now we understand that the Muslim infiltrators from Africa (the migrants from Sudan are all Muslim, and most of the Eritrean migrants are, too) are not weak, but rather their Israeli absorbers. They are not the ones being threatened, because they are not war refugees, but rather Israel is being threatened.
The “human rights” organizations have easy access to the media, and they do not hide their desire to see Israel as a state of all citizens and no longer a Jewish or Zionist state, and from this perspective, the Muslim migrants from Africa suit their cause very well. These organizations bear direct responsibility for the new plague that has befallen Israel. They direct the migration, organize it, preserve it from the authorities, help the migrants get permits and papers, empower them, teach them how to stand up to the authorities, how to conduct demonstrations that will touch the sensitive nerves of the Israelis, and even made them a newspaper, in African languages, which is funded by the UN.
These organizations have helpers, those with economic interests, profiting at the expense of the new slaves, such as hoteliers, who employ them for pennies (especially in Eilat, which therefore becomes an African city), and the construction industry that profits from this new form of slavery developing in Israel. Do these organizations for so-called “human rights” agree with the new slavery being created here? I don’t.
These measures require urgent attention, before we lose control: 1. Start an immediate return of the infiltrators to their homelands. About 85% of the migrants come from Eritrea, which has full diplomatic relations with Israel, and has announced that it would “embrace” the migrants back.
Several thousand have arrived here from South Sudan, which is a new country that has full diplomatic relations with Israel, and its government is ready to accept its citizens back immediately. The allegations we hear from the NGOs that Sudan is in a “war” are groundless, since this country is very big, and the conflict is taking place in a very small part of it. In any case, the military conflict in the Abay district ended this week, when the Sudanese government announced it would pull its troops out.
2. We have to promise that all who return to their country of origin in the first two months (the flight, in any case, is funded by the state) will receive a grant of $2,000. Anyone who returns two months later will receive $1,000, and those next in line will receive $500, and finally, nothing.
This will do the job.
3. Meanwhile, we must open the temporary transit camp that has been promised by the government to be built in the South, and send thousands of migrants there.
4. At the same time, the distribution of automatic visas by the Interior Ministry to every infiltrator must stop.
5. In addition, within four months, the employment of migrants in the hotel, construction and cleaning industries must stop, and heavy fines should be imposed on those employing them. Thus, there won’t be any motivation to get here.
After reading this article, no one can say in two-three years, “I did not know.”
