    Knesset approves plan to jail asylum seekers for longest period of western world in biggest prison.

    On January 11th the Israeli parliament passed an amendment to the so- called “Infiltrators Law”. This revision allows the authorities to automatically imprison asylum seekers for three years. The plan includes constructing a 10,000 person jail to house the refugees. According to Amnesty International, this puts Israel at the top of the Western World for length of imprisonment of refugees. Today Israel is home to nearly 50,000 asylum seekers from Africa, 85% of whom are from Eritrea and Sudan. The Real News' Lia Tarachansky spoke to Nic Schlagman and Johannes Bayu of the African Refugee
    Development Center, Ran Cohen of Physicians for Human Rights, and "Ibrahim", an Eritrean asylum seeker in Israel for ten years.

    Its amazing how Israel continues to get away with doing things like this yet other nations are immediately hounded by the worlds superpowers should they have anything similar.

    Israel is racking up a whole lot of hate in the world and they don't even realize it.
