Learning from Israel's Example, Part CXXXVII

From the Jerusalem Post:
Israel approved only one asylum application out of 4,603 received in 2011, according to a report recently released by the US State Department.

I'm all in favor of taking in refugees like, say, Einstein, Fermi, or Solzhenitsyn, but, let's be frank, most refugees from Third World conflicts can be accommodated in other Third World countries at vastly less expense. If tribesmen in South Sudan are slaughtering each other, well, places like Kenya or Tanzania would put the losers up for a tiny fraction of what it would cost to accomodate them in some naive close-to-the-Canadian-border American town like Minneapolis, Burlington, or Lewiston, where they'll just suffer miserably from the cold.

You must know by now Steve, that 'asylum seeking' these days has very, very little to do with political dissidents - but everything to with scamming western governments.

But Mr. Sailer, it's about so much more than the real needs of the imported refugees. The differently-tinted are brought from the troubled tropics to our lands so that we can scratch that itch given to us by thousands of hours of global village, one-worlder propaganda. These exotic and vibrant folk are imported like high status pets by church parishes filled with wonderful bird-watching type ladies and men who grew up wanting to buy the world a Coke because it's a small world after all. What's good for little Bongo from the Congo comes second to that warm feeling a person gets knowing she's making a difference.

Isn't the question how many of the 4,603 applications should have been approved, under law binding on Israel? In other words, how many of those 4,603 meet the legal requirements for asylum? Israel should grant asylum to those who are in physical danger if returned, right? If Israel grants those refugees asylum, then good for Israel. If not, then Israel's acting pretty horribly.

The assumption seems to be, well, the number of refugees really fleeing imminent danger has gotta be a lot more than one in 3,693 (the number considered so far). But is it?

Doesn't stop them from permanently squatting in our cities, unfortunately.

If its South Sudan in particular, Israel would do good to accomadate them seeing how Israelis have been one of Southern Sudanese greatest backers.

Im sure they wouldnt mind converting to Judaism to ease their transition but how many of the whitish Ashenazim,Sephardim,Mizrahim or indeed the Ethiopian Falashas themselves would be thrilled with such an transparent attempt of a strange,unknown ethnicity joining a restricted group in order to enjoy First World amenities?

It would be probably similar to how legal immigrants(both Hispanic and non) view illegal Mexicans

I predict the elites will ruin our lands Close to the Canadian Border with Section 8 vouchers and refugee resettlement. Just to even things out you know.

They will still have their gate communities and concierges so it's all good.

Re Julius Rosenwald, look what's happened to that lovely housing he built :

http://arcchicago.blogspot.co.uk/2009/02/rosenwald-apartments-on-block-again.html

Apparently it was recently used as a film set, representing the interior of the Chernobyl complex, "a rather harsh illustration of how far out of repair the apartments had become".

The problem is not the LEARNING part. It's the TEACHING part. People learn what they're taught, but our major media and academic institutions--controlled by Jewish supremacists--don't allow professors and journalists to teach us the truth about immigration, Israel, Jewish hypocrisy, and Jewish agenda to use 'diversity' as a 'divide and rule' strategy over us goyim.

Sure, we can seek and learn the truth on our own, but how many people bother to find their own truth? 90% of people prefer to sit back and taught the truth by major media outlets and public education.

Whiskey said...

Oh please, it is not Jewish Supremacists (nearly all of the Jewish elite HATES HATES HATES Jewish identity as much as WASPs hate their own). Rather it is the toxic nature of Brook's idea of noblesse oblige, which he himself practices: HATE HATE HATE for Working/Middle class Whites and particularly White males lacking the charisma and social dominance in a few media/entertainment/finance/legal jobs open to them, and using Blacks/Hispanics as moral props.

Israel only (and that just BARELY) refuses non-Jewish refugees because it is a MATTER OF SURVIVAL. The amount of elite fury, vituperation, and hatred for their FELLOW JEWS is astonishing, and mirrors that of Irish people asking why Ireland is over-run with 800,000 Muslims. In a similarly small country with limited resources.

As Steve noted, Elites play class games (if you have to worry about NAMs you are "the wrong sort of class" and particularly among women, a "loser" to be shunned.) Brooks is as guilty as any of this, just yesterday in the FT there was article berating Europeans for being "anti-Immigrant" in a time of deep recession/depression.

Israel is a special case, the thin margin of survival, memory of the Holocaust (what happens to Jews among people who hate hate hate them have all the power), and the need for national service thus power not completely in the hands of the metrosexual elites even then has a thin line for action.

Europe is similarly stressed, but Hollande WON by the platform of making France into Senegal, basically.

Class division and upwards aping particularly when reinforced by mating market selection tends to make White identity/interests almost impossible to assert. Because obviously if you assert them you're a peacock without all those handicapping tail feathers.

If you truly want to learn from Israel's example you need to break that cycle or (worse) create an obvious thin edge of survival after a White-European Holocaust in the US. I would not recommend the latter course.

"According to the 2011 Irish census, there are 49,200 Muslims living in the Republic of Ireland."

Absolutely not.

Naturally. It's absurdly inefficient for each person to have to find the truth on his own. It makes sense that we would be predisposed to accept the pronouncements of the authorities.

Liar. Israel does not refuse Chinese, South American, Hindu, or non-Muslim African immigration out of concern for MATTERS OF SURVIVAL. At least, not in the lying sense you're making out; Israel can SURVIVE Chinese, South American, Hindu, and non-Muslim African immigration just as well as America can, you liar.

So, Israel is run by and for losers, and are to be shunned. Hey, that's a testable theory. Now find us some examples of it in practice in pop culture.

Israel is a special case

Special pleading. How many times have I pointed out that Ziotards ALWAYS resort to special pleading: "Israel is different - it's Jewish!" Thanks for hanging a light on it, though.

the thin margin of survival

How is Chinese, South American, Hindu and non-Muslim African immigration a threat to Israel's survival in a way that it is not a threat to America's?

memory of the Holocaust

Memory of the Gulags (what happens when YKW and psycho leftists gain power), memory of the Muslim conquests (what happens when foreigners are allowed in), memory of the Mongol genocides (what happens when non-whites are allowed in), bla bla bla.

And what's different between the Scots Irish there and the US? The group in the US are insulated from the harsh realities of life such as terrorism, poverty, etc.

Here the poor and violent are dumped into someone else's neighborhood.

The wealthy can afford to wax poetic like Stepford wives about liberal issues.

Whiskey, do you think it is possible that it is not either or, it is both, or even more likely a handful of things at least... like someone once said, troubles come not as individual spies, but as battalions. For instance, you've probably got to throw in the old mainline protestant religions, who all seem determined to commit suicide to prove they are morally superior (or for some other bizarre reason that amounts to "but of course such superior people as ourselves can give everything our adherents have away, indeed they will thank us for working against their legitimate long term interests...".)

There isn't 800,000 muslims in Ireland Whiskey but there are more than 49,200. The Irish census is piss. Famously, at least in Ireland, in 2006 showed that there were more Chinese in Ireland than Germans(about 11,000 each). The dogs in the street know that this is rubbish by a decent factor. I wouldn't be surprised if there were twice as many Muslims as the census says there are but no more than that.

We have a large transient population. I read once that Tesco estimated that their couldn't be less than 5 million in the republic.

Except Ireland lies prostrate under an immigration onslaught but Israel doesnt. Why is that?

"...where they'll just suffer miserably from the cold."

Back when I was in college, a professor invited the entire class to his house for an end-of-semester dinner. It was cool, but not unreasonably so for a New England winter night- maybe 40 degrees. I was quite warm with just a tweed jacket and cap. Shortly after I arrived and got settled in, a Saudi Arabian classmate came through the door, wearing an enormous, overstuffed parka which made him look like the Michelin Man.

Him: "It's so, so cooold..."
Me: "What are you going to do when the real cold weather gets here?"
Him: "I was just thinking of that."

If those Africans could get phony papers saying they're Jewish like most of Israel's Russian immigrants did, then Israel would admit them no questions asked. And they'd be entitled to welfare benefits up the ying yang.
