Justice Minister: Israel Must Keep Jewish Majority Even at the Expense of Human Rights

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said Monday that if not for the fence erected some years ago on the Egyptian border, “We would be seeing here a kind of creeping conquest from Africa.” The fence effectively stopped asylum-seekers from Sudan and Eritrea from entering the country.

In a speech to the Congress on Judaism and Democracy, Shaked also said, “I think that ‘Judaizing the Galilee’ is not an offensive term. We used to talk like that. In recent years we’ve stopped talking like that. I think it’s legitimate without violating the full rights of the Arab residents of Israel.”
The justice minister made the remarks in a wide-ranging speech on the controversy over the Jewish nation-state bill.

She further said, “There is place to maintain a Jewish majority even at the price of violation of rights.” She added, however, that maintaining a Jewish majority in Israel and acting democratically “must be parallel and one must not outweigh the other.”

Regarding the nation-state bill, Shaked said, “I was disturbed at both the position of the state and the reasoning of the justices. The state did not defend the law for national demographic reasons, it claimed only security reasons.” Shaked told the conference that “the state should say that there is place to maintain the Jewish majority even if it violates rights.”

Africans in Israel protest the imprisonment of migrants who have refused deportation


Hundreds of African migrants marched from the Holot detention centre to the Saharonim Prison in Israel’s southern Negev region on Thursday, after seven Eritreans who refused deportation were imprisoned.

The protesters said they were on hunger strike and would not eat until the seven aslyum-seekers were set free. They chanted slogans as they marched: "We are not criminals; we are refugees" and "Bring back our brothers", and raised their arms in the air as if they were chained.

"The Israeli government forced us to go to prison for an unlimited time, so we protest that. We kindly request the state of Israel grant us asylum," said one protester, Muluebrhn Cthebrihiwet.

Around 700 of the asylum-seekers currently being held at the Holot centre started a hunger strike on Tuesday after the seven asylum-seekers were detained. Seven asylum-seekers from Eritrea refused to be sent back to Rwanda as part of a "voluntary" deportation issued by the Israeli government.
