Ha'Aretz: Herzog Calls on Government to Allow Syrian Refugees Into IsraelEsser Agaroth (2¢):
The opposition leader says that 'Jews cannot be indifferent while hundreds of thousands of refugees are looking for safe haven.'

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog on Saturday called on the government to allow Syrian refugees into Israel.
During a panel discussion in Tel Aviv, Herzog said that on Friday night he spoke with Kamal Al-Labwani, a senior leader in the exiled Syrian opposition government in Europe.
"The Syrian opposition has grave complaints against the nations of the world," Herzog said.
"I call on the government of Israel to act toward receiving refugees from the war in Syria, in addition to the humanitarian efforts it is already making," Herzog said. "Jews cannot be indifferent while hundreds of thousands of refugees are looking for safe haven."
In his own response to the photo on Wednesday, Knesset Member Elazar Stern (Yesh Atid) also called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to grant asylum to "a limited number of Syrian refugees." The call was also backed by Meretz Chairwoman Zahava Galon. (cont.)
He further states that "...Our nation knows the lessons of history well. We cannot remain indifferent to this great suffering."
MK Elazar Stern (Yesh Atid) also called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to grant asylum to "a limited number of Syrian refugees."
Stern should talk. He was even assaulted by an African infiltrator while touring South Tel Aviv. His solution? Spread the infiltrators throughout Israel. Somehow I doubt that the affluent areas in Israel, such as North Tel-Aviv, Hertzliya Pitu'ah, Hod HaSharon, K'far Shmaryahu, and Caesaria will be welcoming any of these infiltrators home, anytime soon.
Just more attempts at de-Jewifying the already quasi-Jewish State of Israel, bringing it into the fold of the developing global culture and government.
As I continued reading this report, I began to have hope when Stern's own party leader Yair Lapid's (Yesh Atid) he referred to Israel's pre-existing problem with infiltrators. Lapid was also correct is suggesting that this would open up a "back door for a discussion of the Palestinian right of return."
However, my hopes were quickly dashed, when he announced his own "brilliant" solution to focus on assimilating our current infiltrators.
Like Stern's idiotic idea, somehow I doubt that the affluent areas in Israel, such as North Tel-Aviv, Hertzliya Pitu'ah, Hod HaSharon, K'far Shmaryahu, and Caesaria will be forced to assimilate any of these infiltrators, anytime soon.
More Leftist, hypocritical double standards.
Surprised? You shouldn't be.
Meanwhile, what are the Arab states doing to help these refugees?
You guessed it. Absolutely nothing.
