The Israeli journalist Yermi Brenner wrote an article for the HP called "African Asylum Seekers In Israel." One might think that this might be an article that portrays Israel in a positive light, after all, sixteen thousand refugees have entered Israel over the past few years, and Israel is the number one destination for refugees.
But this is the Huffington Post, of course, so praising Israel never lasts long. What Brenner is writing about is the recent shift in Israel toward trying to stop illegal immigrants from flowing over the border. The most notable example being the fence built on Israel's border with Egypt. As we well know in America, immigration issues are a difficult topic of debate: At what point should America and Israel draw the line? This is especially problematic with Israel because (a) they have so few people and (b) it's difficult to resettle these refugees. You can see this with the ABC article and the NYT articles linked by Brenner. They indicate that these refugees pose a "challenge," and a "puzzle," for the Israelis.
However when it comes to the Jewish state the immigration debate is over. Immigration is no longer a controversial issue, there is only one side. Israel isn't flinging opens it's doors? Let the HP rage begin! And it did: HPers kennyfloyd and alysheba were quick to claim that Israel is only motivated in doing this by racism, though of course there were the usual condemnations that we have come to expect.
