Israel Gives Citizenship Towards Darfur Refugees

With all of the chaos raging in Darfur, Prime Minister Olmert has decided to grant 500 refugees the privilege of being Israeli citizens.

(Israel National News) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced Sunday that he has ordered 500 Darfur refugees be given Israeli citizenship and absorption assistance.

Olmert added, however, that other African refugees, who continue to attempt to enter Israel from Egypt, will be turned away. Fifty such Africans were transported back to Egypt Saturday night.

This is great news for those suffering from the tragedy that is happening in that region of the world, although hopefully Olmert can display the same amount of grace to the Jews in Ethiopia as he has to these refugees.
