U.S. Jews Demand Refugees—But Not in Israel

The U.S.-based Hebrew Immigration Aid Society (HIAS) has demanded that the “United States remains a place where families fleeing war and persecution can find safety and dignity”—in an article published in Israel, the Jewish state which has refused to take refugees, outlaws marriage between Jews and non-Jews, and has a Jews-only immigration policy.

More than 200 attendees pose for a group photo at HIAS’s #JewsforRefugees Assembly in New York, Sept 14, 2016.

Writing in a “communicated content” article in the Jerusalem–based Times of Israel, HIAS president Mark Hetfield said that “America has always been at its greatest when we have welcomed refugees to our shores.”

The article, titled “Join the Jewish movement to support refugees,” urges Jews to join up with HIAS to bring even more “refugees” into America than is currently the case.

“Driven by our people’s shared experience of persecution and flight, and guided by over 135 years helping refugees find safety and freedom, HIAS and the American Jewish community are working together to protect and welcome refugees and asylum seekers,” Hetfield wrote.

“Communities across the United States, and Jewish communities in particular, are going to great lengths to help the newest Americans,” the HIAS president continued.

“Through our network of thousands of rabbis and hundreds of synagogues, we’ve seen these efforts firsthand. During the week of Thanksgiving, advocates in communities including San Diego, Philadelphia, and New York, helped refugees celebrate the holiday for the first time.

“And over the past year, local congregations around the country have volunteered to furnish apartments for newly arrived refugees, organized monthly potluck dinners, and offered language and job training.

“The Jewish community is dedicated to these initiatives because we know all too well the danger of allowing short-sighted and xenophobic rhetoric shape attitudes toward minorities and newcomers. America has always been at its greatest when we have welcomed refugees to our shores and at its weakest when we have shut our doors out of fear. American Jews and HIAS know this better than anyone.

“Moving forward, HIAS will continue to work with our partners in the refugee advocate community, our network of local agencies, all levels of government, and most significantly, the many thousands of refugees we help every year, to defend America’s tradition of welcoming and protecting refugees.”

The article ends with an appeal to its readers to join HIAS and “keep trying to fight darkness with light, and fear with welcome.”

In Israel, however, there is no such “welcome” as what HIAS wants for America. In fact, the Israeli government has refused to accept any “refugees” at all from Syria, Africa, or anywhere else—and is building a new wall to keep them out.

An official statement from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said that “Israel is a small country, a very small country, that lacks demographic and geographic depth. Therefore, we must control our borders, against both illegal migrants and terrorism.”

Israel’s official view on barring Syrian “refugees” was also detailed in the LA Times of September 6, 2015 (“One country that won’t be taking Syrian refugees: Israel”), where Netanyahu repeated his assertion that Israel’s “lack of demographic and geographic depth” required controlling its borders against both “illegal migrants and terrorism.”

In fact, Israel has also made it illegal for any non-Jew, as racially defined by that state, to immigrate to Israel at all, no matter where they come from.

At the same time, the Israeli government has also financed, through its official foreign aid section (IsraAID), the Third World Muslim invasion of Europe.

HIAS’s chutzpah seems, therefore, to be in line with the already well-established practice of one law for Israel, and another law for all gentile nations.

  1. For the Jews-not in their backyard. Screw everyone else. Wherever they go there will always be problems. Their ridiculous history has not changed in over 5000 years.

  2. It is time for the American “money spigot” that supports Israel to be turned off. Israel has NEVER been our “friend”. Look up the Lavon affair and the USS Liberty and see what our “friend” has done to us.
    U S funds for Israel, not only include cash, but military hardware as well. At the end of every fiscal year, these U S “loans” to Israel are conveniently forgiven.
    Not only loans but access to American citizens’ financial and communications records (unredacted) have been made available to Israeli intelligence for YEARS. This NSA revelation that American citizens’ records were submitted to Israeli interests is nothing new . . .
    Let’s look at the two “false-flag” incidents in which Israel attacked AMERICANS and attempted to blame others.
    The Lavon affair was an attempt by Israel to commit a terrorist act against a U S interests section building; one of the bombs exploded prematurely, exposing the “operation” as Israeli-conceived and run.
    The USS Liberty is the “big-daddy” of Israeli attacks on the U S. This attack was deliberate, was authorized at the top-levels of the Israeli government and had a two-fold purpose. One, was to provoke a war with Egypt (Israel wanted a “nuclear-exchange” between the U S and Egypt). Second, was to cover evidence of a massacre in an Arab city. Initially, “president” Lyndon Johnson REFUSED help for the stricken ship. (What did Israel have on LBJ??) It was no secret that Israel wanted “all-hands” to perish and did its best to see that happen (but fortunately failed).

    The sailors of the U S S Liberty were warned not to discuss the “incident” under penalty of courts-martial, were scattered throughout the Navy; no formal “Naval Board of Inquiry” was ever convened. (John McCain’s admiral “daddy” saw to that). The Captain of the U S S Liberty was presented with the “Medal of Honor”, NOT at the White House (which is protocol) but at an obscure base.

    It is interesting to note that the start of the 1967 “six-day-war” was a pre-emptive strike by Israel–NOT a response to an attack by Arab interests.
    Prior knowledge of the 9-11 “incident” is also on Israel’s hands. Google “dancing Israelis and 9-11” You won’t like what you find.

    1. Thank you for reminding us how Israel undermines the US at every conceivable opportunity. Before long, maybe under Trump’s directive, it will be illegal to criticize the Jewish State. The First Amendment of free speech will be killed in the dead of night like the usual Mossad operation. We let this happen folks. We’ve voted in administration after administration … Hellbent on destroying the very fabric of our society for the sole purpose of advancing the Zionist agenda. They have been kicked out of every nation that once welcomed them as guests for one common reason. America, get smart. BDS every day in every way. Do not serve them. Do not wealthen them. They do not deserve your kindness or respect. Think otherwise? Just look how the Jewish State legislates hatred to every non-jew.

    2. So many of them who have finagled there way into government positions do all they can to undermine our communities so that they become anarchic crime ridden areas and urban dead zones. Rahm Emmanue’s (who’s father was and Israeli terrorist who specialized in bombing buses) Chicago comes to mind.

  3. If they want “refugees” in the U.S. so badly, then let them start by dumping them in the Jewish enclaves of Beverly Hills, Martha’s Vineyard, the Hamptons, Boca Raton, Manhattan’s upper East Side, Brighton Beach, Long Island, and others. Their hypocrisy and depravity are breathtaking. Enough of it.

  4. What a hypocritical shower of b*stards. Destroy the US and Europe with third world muslims but keep them away from Israel!

    1. Twofold cyclical zionist plan. Clear region for greater Israel. Weaken opponents by demographic genocide and social dysgenics programme (promotion of race mixing)

  5. How dare these creatures tell any country what to do! The motive is of course, obvious: to destroy national unity (to the extent that this still remains), and make the world a comfortable place for them.

  6. There are 500.000 palestine war refugees living in Jordan. Why can´t they go back home. They are not even “modern” refugees. According to international law, they can return to their homes when combat operations have ended, which they did 40 years ago

    1. Are you saying there is no combat in Palestine? I thought it was still occupied territory and still very much like living in a war zone even today.

  7. Just as audacious as ever in their outright hypocrisy. These same US Jews also practice exclusion in their own US Jewish communities, in their schools and in everything else they do.

    But the Internet is exposing to the world this outright Jewish hypocrisy – no longer will the goyim tolerate these lies. Go take your hypocritical stance to Israel and stay there when you get there.

  8. Great article. It really highlights those who are behind our displacement and dispossession, if not incremental outright extermination, and who also vehemently cry out and chastise those who even dare criticize this insidious demographic and cultural plan.

  9. Americans are waking up to the Zionist conspiracy-we will not
    allow this migration of Jews to further erode this country!

  10. Yea They should be like American Liberals, bring in people that hate our way of life, hate gays, demean women, and want to kill us. You can’t fix the world by bringing everyone here. Call me all the names you want but you can’t call me STUPID. This is 2017 not 1600.
