Help Israel's African refugees
Nearly 60,000 Africans have fled from war zones and human rights abusing regimes, including Eritrea and Sudan, looking for freedom and prosperity in Israel, the only economically and politically stable liberal democracy in the region. But rather than implementing a just and reasonable policy to handle asylum applications and providing social services to those in need, the government dumped asylum seekers into Israel's poorest neighborhoods and government officials began stoking racist hatred against them. Now, in response to public outcry and following a series of violent attacks against African migrants, Israel has begun rounding asylum seekers up into internment camps and deporting them back to their nations of origin. This must stop!

Please sign and share our petition to the Prime Minister of Israel, and to American Jewish organizations which wield significant influence over Israeli decision-making, to fire government officials who incite racism against Africans, to end the detentions and deportations, and to overhaul Israel's asylum application process.
