New Israeli Government Will Relaunch African Expulsion Policy

Israel will relaunch its policy to expel all African invaders pretending to be refugees from the Jews-only state—as soon as coalition talks on forming that country’s new government have been finalized.

According to a report in the Times of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party “plans to revive bids to expel migrants, terrorists’ families” once the coalition talks—which are expected to be completed within the next two weeks, are finalized.

According to the Times of Israel, the Likud party has told prospective coalition partners that they must support two bills, “one of which was previously struck down by the High Court of Justice as unconstitutional and another that the attorney general described as an infringement of human rights.”

Likud is including the bills, allowing the detention of invaders for up to three years and enabling the forcible relocation of relatives of Palestinian attackers from their homes, in a legal annex to coalition agreements, the report said, quoting a Ynet news report.

“The purpose of the override clause is to enable the Knesset, which was elected by the people, to legislate the policies for which it was elected,” a source said, according to the report. “We will do this on many levels, among them the campaign against terror, and also removing migrants from Israel.”

In 2013, the Israeli High Court ruled that an amendment allowing the state to detain illegal migrants for up to three years without charging them with a crime was unconstitutional. The Knesset in December 2014 eventually approved a watered-down bill easing detention procedures for African invaders, but also “motivating” those in the country to leave by enabling their incarceration in a detention facility for up to 20 months.

As part of a series of measures targeting Palestinian perpetrators of attacks, the Ministerial Committee for Legislation voted in December 2018 to advance a bill that would permit the IDF’s Central Command to expel the relatives of Palestinian assailants from their hometowns to other parts of the West Bank within a week of an attack or attempted attack.

The next day, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit announced his official opposition to the bill, warning that the proposal could infringe on human rights and spark international condemnation of Israel.

Earlier this week, the Haaretz newspaper reported that Netanyahu planned to promote a bill that would allow the government to override the High Court of Justice on administrative as well as legislative matters.

Last year the government gave its approval for a so-called override bill that would give a majority of 61 MKs the ability to overturn High Court decisions to strike down Knesset legislation as unconstitutional.

Although the bill advanced no further, following last month’s elections Netanyahu is likely to form a new coalition relying on “right-wing” nationalist parties that generally support the legislation.

Since 2006, at least 50,000 Eritreans and Sudanese, pretending to be refugees, invaded Israel seeking to parasite off the welfare system there, via the Sinai desert. The Jews-only state responding by building a massive border fence—which halted the invasion completely—and by constructing the Holot concentration camp in the Negev desert to house the Africans pending their expulsion.
