JPost Op-Ed from an American Jew in Israel

Posted on Thu, Jan 09, 2014 at 11:05 am

In light of recent strikes and demonstrations by African asylum seekers in Israel, Elliot Vaisrub Glassenberg says that he “cannot bear to watch the moral travesty currently being inflicted on African migrants in the name of Israel and the Jewish people” in his recent op-ed in The Jerusalem Post.  

In his piece, Glassenberg mentions HIAS as one of the leading Jewish organizations raising concerns about the new amendment to Israel’s “Anti-Infiltration Law” which would enable the Israeli government to arrest and detain asylum seekers without trial for up to three years.
