Israel Does its Part by Receiving Jewish Refugees from Ukraine

There is no need for Israel to receive refugees from Ukraine not eligible under Israel’s Law of Return. The European Union has completely opened its door to the influx of refugees from Ukraine with no questions asked. Israel is doing its part in providing a refuge to fleeing Ukrainians by accepting those eligible under the Law of Return. Israel’s decisions to go beyond that set a dangerous precedent in suggesting that Israel ceases being a Jewish state by proactively engaging in the reception of large numbers of refugees with no connection to the Jewish people. Israel was founded as the haven of the indigenous Jewish nation in its own indigenous lands and should certainly remain so.
