Forward Magazine, the largest Jewish publication in the world, recently bragged that American Jews are on the forefront of supporting immigration in the United States. Israel, however, has decided to close it’s own borders to the 3rd world.

The Israel government has announced that it can not longer cope with Ethiopian immigrants, and will close it’s border to them. Ethiopian leaders in Israel are crying “racism.”
