How to cross the border of Israel without control?

Now I’m not talking about the transparent border of Egypt and Israel, where the fence is only 30 km from the Gaza Strip to the south, and the second is a short section from Taba to the town of Nakev, 20 km northwest of Eilat. All, there are no more border barriers at all. It’s ridiculous in Israel’s conditions, isn’t it? And the result is a face, more than 1000 illegal migrants from Sudan, Eritrea and other African countries run to Israel every year on foot, this is what the Israeli media write about it.

The flip side of ostentatious vigilance at Ben Gurion Airport

In continuation of the theme begun by Sergei Dole about what he happened to experience at Ben-Gurion’s Israeli airport, I would like to give a logical continuation.

Then there will be a lot of criticism of the Israeli GBists, but from an unexpected angle, to some extent “from the inside” of this system. Immediately I want to ask those who will be indignant (and there will be many such) that I once again encroach on the sacred cow – that is, the Israeli KGB. But the truth is more expensive, and I am convinced that the more often and cynical we hit the nail on the head, the more likely it is that the situation will begin to improve. And the second request to the “cursers” – I express my subjective opinion and my views, therefore I will not respond to rudeness, insults, attempts to threaten and frighten. Continue reading
