As a strike by tens of thousands of African asylum seekers against Israel's migration policies entered its third day on Tuesday, Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar announced that dozens of Eritrean asylum seekers had left Israel voluntarily in recent weeks for Sweden.

The announcement did not specify the number of those who had left for Sweden. The majority were apparently women, many of whom had been victims of torture and human trafficking and who had been imprisoned in Israel for a long time.

Excellent news! It's a win for both nations: Sweden gets some much needed diversity in order to enrich its Nordic culture, while Israel gets to protect its Jewish identity. Well done!

Not really sure why Israel deports foreigners. Even pays them to leave. Somebody not wanted? Sounds familiar. Especially for Israel.
And the article talks about "tens of thousands" and you get excited about "dozens" ?

dozens?

In people-terms, and influences on large cities or countries, that isn't that many.

Lets see.. Limited housing, limited welfare funding that the Haredi already gobble up, no funding from the UN to take care of them, limited jobs. BTW with the UN, the UN has plenty of funding for Syrians and Palestinians but have done nothing to aid the Eritreans because they squatted in where? Israel.

This seems to be "news" only on extremist sites.

This seems to be "news" only when the word Israel is included.

That wasn't what many people had in their mind when they helped Jews escaping from the Nazis. Many people still offered all the help they could. Africa is a dump. Horrible place. Lawless. People are exploited, killed, persecuted etc. Out of all the countries, it's Israel should be the one welcoming them with open arms. Because they have been there. How about this: educate them, give them jobs. It's a win-win situation for both sides.
