    Except they aren't immigrants, if they were, there'd be no problems, they are guest workers, and as such they aren't citizens of the state, they can't vote or change the "religion of the state".

    As someone already said, its a protectionist policy, an economic policy, and whether you agree with such policies or not, don't say it's about religion or anything else.

    While pork is widely used in a lot of Asian food, it's definitely not used in every single dish, and sushis are rarely made of pork. Rolls are often fully vegetarian. And I'm pretty sure that the Asian restaurants in Israel have the common sense to adapt to their customers' customs. They're not stupid.
    Also, not all Jews strictly follow the dietary religious laws.

    I don't understand this. Why would religion get in the way?


    Did I miss something, or is that a racist joke?

    It's a joke on the stereotype of Jews being miserly. If they were blacks, I'd call them niggardly. :mischief:

    Why on Earth? Does this mean that innocent kenyans belong to Kenya or sudanese to Sudan and shouldn't be allowed to leave to save their lives?

    Please. I agree that this is a dumb policy, but ethnic cleansing this isn't.

    As I said in the duplicate thread, I find it highly ironic that the jews of all people take a highly xenophobic stance.

    This will be reported in the news of nearly every country with guest
    workers in Israel. Not exactly how to win friends and influence people.

    A tactful approach would have been to drop the numbers of visas slowly.

    This is kinda of shooting yourself in the foot.

    >.< F***ing Israel.

    I'm beginning to think humanity will never learn anything.
