Refugees and Immigrants in Israel

A new Israeli blog (in Hebrew) has just gone up, dedicated to the issues of refugees and non-Jewish (and non-Arab) denizens of Israel - mostly the third-world workers who have replaced the Palestinians since the so-called peace process severed their relationship with Israel.

Think what you will about the phenomenon itself, the number of people involved is at least tens of thousands, perhaps more, and merely pretending they're here temporarily and presently will be gone, won't help. Nor can we plausibly assume, alas, that they're being treated fairly while here.

So this is to wish the best to Oded Feller and Jonathan Berman, the two attorneys running the blog.
