    Israel Set To Build Anti-Immigration Fence
    Immigration; Posted on: 2010-01-12 18:05:25 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    Officials fear they could upset the country's demographic mix, possibly tilting it away from a Jewish majority.

    Israel's prime minister
    has ordered the construction of two massive fences along the long and porous southern border with Egypt, saying he wants to stem a growing flood of African asylum seekers and to prevent Islamic militants from entering the country.

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the structure would help preserve Israel's Jewish majority, while providing a layer of protection along an open border with an area suspected of having an al-Qaida presence.

    "I decided to close Israel's southern border to infiltrators and terrorists after prolonged discussions," he said in a statement. "This is a strategic decision to ensure the Jewish and democratic character of the state of Israel.

    Israel will remain open to war refugees but we cannot allow thousands of illegal workers to infiltrate into Israel via the southern border and flood our country," he said.
