The government approved a separation wall in Sinai to stave off “smugglers and terrorists,” but actually the illegal African migrants. Some 40,000 of them entered Israel before. At their current breeding rate, in ten years they will become 3% of Israeli population.
The wall is estimated to cost about $300 million, which is nonsense. If the current separation barrier cost is any indicator, the actual cost will be close to $9 billion – at the time when the government couldn’t scramble $100 million to reinforce Sderot schools against new rocket types. Palestinians already learned to scale the wall, and Africans will do likewise.
Egyptian border policemen fight illegals on the cheap by shooting them.
