Here is the State of Israel's moment of truth.
Will it cave in to international pressure and name calling?
Will it take in these refugees which it cannot even afford to support?
Will anyone in the Israeli Government finally have the guts to point out the lack of Arab states taking part in the absorption of these "refugees?" Only Jordan appears to have been bullied into taking any in.
Will Israeli citizens bother to put up a fight, or just cave into the misguided, leftist minority, which is really in control of this State?
Is this a tactic, from outside forces, to ease the removal of the Golan Heights from the State of Israel's hands? Or just a side "benefit" to be secretly embraced by the Erev Rav?
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report: In new Syrian exodus, some 50,000 refugees head to Jordanian, Israeli bordersEsser Agaroth (2¢):
February 10, 2016
Syria’s refugee crisis in the north is now repeating itself in the south, with tens of thousands of destitute women, children and elderly people fleeing their homes – not this time from beleaguered Aleppo to the Turkish border, but from the southern region of Daraa towards the Jordanian and Israeli borders.
Unlike the broad coverage of the refugee crisis on the Syrian-Turkish border, the refugee exodus from the south has received scant media attention – even from Israeli correspondents.
With the intensification of attacks in southern Syria, about 50,000 refugees are now streaming toward Jordan and another 20,000 making tracks from Israel’s Golan border at Quneitra.
debkafile’s military sources report that, since the weather has cleared and Russian air strikes resumed against the rebels holding the northern part of Daraa, tens of thousands of civilians are on the move from the South. About 15,000 to 20,000 have reached the Jordanian border, and more than 30,000 are believed heading that way; while another 20,000 Refugees may be making for the Golan town of Quneitra on the Israeli border.

This is yet another opportunity for "rabbis" to claim that taking in these refugees is the "Jewish" way, or the "Torah" way, even when there is not halakhic (Torah legal) support for this whatsoever, especially if Israel is considered to be in a position of strength (יד ישראל תקיפה).
These rabbis include those mamlakhtim (die-hard State loyalists) such as Rabbi Yuval Cherlow (left), who identifies as "Religious Zionist." Just how wrong these rabbis are seems to depend upon their willingness to accept that the Torah differentiates between Jews and non-Jews, and not just in our respective, and very different, obligations on this earth.
Aside from their demented השקפה (preconceived notions), if even one in these thousands of refugees turns out to be a terrorist, then what would these rabbis have to say? That it was worth it?
Irrespective of the "unhelpful" actions of these "rabbis," very few have been willing to acknowledge that the Syrian refugee crisis, is neither Syrian, refugees, nor even a crisis. The following video by Rabbi David Bar-Hayim, Rosh Machon Shilo, elaborates on this.
The above Debkafile report concludes with...
The Israeli government has not yet issued any statements of policy with regard to the Syrian refugees heading for the Golan.What I would like to know is why the heck not. This is a no-brainer, or at least it should be.
Brace yourselves, especially those of you in the Golan. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
