The US state department has criticised Israel’s treatment of thousands of African asylum seekers who it says are being denied basic social services.
The US annual report on human rights says that many are refused refugee status, so cannot access health care.
It is estimated that up to 60,000 migrants, most from Sudan and Eritrea, have entered Israel in recent years.
The report also criticises Israeli government officials for referring to migrants negatively as “infiltrators”.
It cites statistics from the UNHCR which show Israel approved just one of the 4,603 new asylum applications it received last year.
The data also shows that more than 6,000 previous cases are still pending.
The US state department notes that Israel has ended the practice of immediately returning asylum seekers who had arrived through Egypt.
In 2010 Israel approved the construction of a barrier along its border with Egypt to try to stop migrants entering the country. Once complete it will run for 250km (155 miles) and include an electric fence and surveillance technology.
But it shows concern over regulations that allow the authorities to reject applications without appeal, and that there is no independent appeal process.

If you would have an inch of honesty you’d write about racism in all Arab and Muslim lands. Not about your lies against Jews. [All Jews, Ashknazi, M.E., or African Jews are all related by DNA,, as testing shows the old lies have been rebuked. Sorry].
Arab apartheid / Muslim apartheid are the largest ‘apartheid systems’, that exist today.
Virtually all non-Arabs and/or non-Muslims are second class citizens. Among minorities that feel the wrath of the bigoted Arab-Muslim world are:
* Berbers (native N. Africans, before Arab invasion: Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco).
* Copts (indigenous Egyptians suffer from both: Arab racism and Islamic bigotry).
* Kurds (Examples include: [Saddam’s] Iraq and Syria.
* Blacks, in Arab lands or in Arab ruled Africa like North Africa (Tunisia, Libya, etc.), worse is the genocide in the Sudan and slavery in both Sudan and in Mauritania.
* Asians, particularly in the Gulf Arab states. [Sex slaves or “plain” slaves).
* Maronites-Christians [Native Lebanese] suffer from both Arab ethnic racism and religious bigotry, like the massacres in the 1970s by local Muslims and by Palestinian/Syrian forces.
* Assyrians, are/have been persecuted both racially and religiously. Still very much marginalized in Iraq, for example.
* Iran is not an Arab country but racism is huge against ethnic Kurds, Azeris, Afghans, Turkmens, etc. So is anti-non-Muslim bigotry against Christians, Bahai, Jews, Zoroastrians and others in the Islamic republic.
* Turkey is also a Muslim non-Arab country and Kurds, Greeks, Armenians and other ethnicities have been through much suffering, genocide. Still there’s great wide racism against non-Turkish ethnic groups including racism against Alevis and against Kurds. Turkey’s policy in Cyprus has also been recognized as a real Apartheid by many. All non-Muslims are automatically branded as “foreigners” at the “moderate” Islamic supremacy of Turkey.
* Chinese, Indians, Christians and other non-Malay, in Malaysia; Chinese, Christians in Indonesia, have long been subject to persecution, race-riots, discrimination, racism and bloodshed.
* Non-Muslims or the ‘wrong kind of Muslims,’ in Pakistan; Iraq; Afghanistan, are oppressed and targeted in deadly attacks.
* All non-Muslims in ‘Islamic Apartheid state’ of S. Arabia.
* Asians [slaves!] in the Gulf Arab states.
* Bedoons in Kuwait.
* Al-Akhdam in Yemen.
* Gypsies in Jordan.
Islamic-Arab “Palestine” apartheid:
* Ahmadiyya Muslims are harshly persecuted in (Pakistan and in) the “Palestinian” Apartheid authority and/or by Hamas.
* Descendants of slaves of the Bedouins are still stigmatized by racist “Palestinians”.
* Christians are discriminated, persecuted against [especially since Y. Arafat’s Islamization of Bethlehem], by Palestine authority and Hamas regime.
From anti-Jewish Apartheid:
– The Arab racist apartheid against the Jews attempted genocide ever since the 1920s, (Like Mufti of “Palestine” at his incited massacres, and Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood who called simply ‘to kill Jews’).
– Chased out a Million Jews in the late 1940.
– Has boycotted and demonized [every logical defensive action is branded “racist”] the Jewish democratic-free-equal-to-all state only because it’s the “other”. It is neither Muslim nor purely Arab.
– The Arab racist world continues to play with Arab-Palestinians (grandchildren of Arab immigrants) like ping-pong against Israel.
AND THE BEACON OF APARTHEID HAS THE AUDACITY TO CHARGE MULTI-RACIAL ISRAEL’S BEAUTIFUL DEMOCRACY [THAT OFTEN GIVES PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT FOR ITS ARABS OVER JEWS] WITH THIS TERMINOLOGY?
THE ARAB DECEPTIVE PROPAGANDA MACHINE THAT ACTS AS IF ARAB-ISLAMIC GENOCIDAL CAMPAIGN IS NOT OBVIOUS TO DETERMINE ISRAEL’S EXTRA SECURITY MEASURES [INCLUDING AN ANTI-TERROR / ANTI-MASSACRES WALL].
As if we don’t know the ‘Arab oil lobby’s power’ over the UN and other major international organizations and some African officials to go along with the Arab propaganda.
Despite some non-Arabs who jump on this wagon out of: ignorance, of confusion complex, or of sheer bigotry, never forget, that this entire “apartheid, racism” label was pushed by Arab racists, ganging up in the UN since 1975.
Even promoter of the apartheid-slur [which was actually invented in 1961 by A. Shukairy, who was the henchman and spokesman for the infamous Mufti al-Husseini the Mufti, notorious for being A. Hitler’s ally and adviser on exterminating the Jews. Shukairy also called to throw the Jews into the sea] J. Carter admitted on CNN: “I recognize that Israel is a wonderful democracy with freedom of speech and equality of treatment under the law between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis.” edition.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0612/12/acd.02.html
Incidentally, the lying Pallywood machine also created a fake “memorandum” claiming that N. Mandela ever uttered this crappy analogy.
All that non-sequitor and red herring fallacies of yours are simply irrelevant and non consequential in this context.
The subject here is the racist acts that are being perpertrated by Eastern European Jewish converts against the aboriginals of Africa and middle East, your so-called blacks. Those Ethiopians, Eriterians, Sudanese, and others that you humiliate and intimidate.
That should stop. Israel is in Africa as there is no continent of Middle East. The land of Palestine where Israel is today was still designated as Africa on the map until 1912. The culture that is Israel today, the religion that is Jewry, the Bible, the Torah, are African. The oldest Hebrews are Ethiopians.
It is ironic that strangers will come into Africa from Russsia and begin yelling at us to go back to Africa. Why don’t you head back to Russia, Poland and Khazakstan?
Anti immigrant attacks have nothing to do with “racism,” it is a power struggle for jobs, opportunity and housing in the tightly tiny country, that so many seem to blame-the-victim.
Why should a tiny country that was RE established to provide refuge for Persecuted (for being, related to Jewish origins) have to replace its limited sources to foreigners who escape Arab racism in Sudan?
After all, where was this writer in praising the embracing by democratic multi cultural, multi colors, multi-racial Israel when it accepted so many Asians, African refugees?
Why do white trolls give themselves afro names to lie and confuse divide and conquer. I see you whites and fews are at your old troll tricks.
