Israeli expert says it exactly like he sees it after having researched his country’s challenges:
“The migration wave is not a problem for the future. It is today; it is going on now […] It will just increase from day to day. […] In India, they shoot; in Nepal, they shoot; in Japan, they shoot [at refugees…] Millions perished along the Sahel […] It’s the deterioration of Africa […] I can see how the desert will penetrate slowly to Kiryat Gat, Gaza and Hebron – everywhere […] If you accept what the scientists are saying, then there will be no question that people will be forced to leave the Negev. […] Why are they coming to the North? Either because of population explosion or because of water loss […] This is a microcosm of what is going on between the border of the Mediterranean climate and the semiarid zone. […] I am one that fights for building fences all around Israeli borders […] We are an island – we don’t belong to this region, and we have to defend Israel from waves of migration from Egypt from Jordan and maybe from Syria. If we want to keep Israel a Jewish state, we will have to defend ourselves from what I call ‘climate refugees,’ exactly as Europe is doing now […we should provide the Palestinians and the Jordanians with sources of water] maybe this will bring peace. […] I have to satisfy the Israeli citizens, to be human as much as I can […] Whatever I do, we will not be as cruel as Europe. They have huge navies; they sink boats; they send them back.”
