Israel Stops 20 Activists Between Egypt-Israel Border

Interior Minister Yishai says ” If there were no fence, and if we weren’t steadfast, there would be a million people here.”  It’s in the Israeli paper Ha’aretz Sept. 3. 2012  There are 60,000 African migrants who came to Israel either as refugees or to seek a better life.  Recently many have been subject to attack.  Yishai wants to lock them all up indefinitely in an Israeli detention facility.  The Ha’aretz editors believe in another path.   Ha’aretz is considered Israel’s “paper of record”, but it has rather low circulation, mostly among the secular and well educated.
