Maya Paley is glad to see Jews expressing support for Syrian refugees. But isn’t that hypocritical, she asks, if we forget to advocate for the humane treatment of Israel’s African asylum seekers?
When Maya Paley and Tamar Shertok met Guy, a Darfuri genocide survivor who dreamed of going to college, they knew they had to help — whatever the cost.
Israel’s high court struck down the policy of detaining African asylum-seekers. Why can’t the government seek justice instead of punishment for immigrants?
A new Israeli law allows undocumented immigrants, mostly African asylum seekers, to be detained indefinitely. Diaspora Jews must not turn a blind eye to this injustice.
