Ayalon Criticizes Yishai Over Infiltrators

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon criticized Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Thursday, over his policy of deportation of infiltrators.

Speaking at the Gordon College in Haifa, Ayalon said Yishai’s policy is “political demagoguery. It is something that has caused extraordinary damage to Israel. Ambassadors of foreign countries have told us that it is our right not to receive infiltrators, that it’s the right of every country, but that we should also be humane. If you send them back to Sudan, and I support this because there is an agreement between us and South Sudan, do not do it in the media. Why does the Interior Minister come to the airport to humiliate them in a well-publicized manner??? This is very serious.”
